    Repost- We love featuring emerging technologies on Tractors and Troubadoursand this week we'll tell you about Pattern Ag, which is using DNA technology to help farmers understand how to unlock key nutrients and micronutrients that will help their crops thrive. We also discuss navigating family disagreements in farm operations, we chat with Farmer Grayce and we tell you about this year's SuperTractors promotion from Shell Rotella. Also, we feature the music of C.J. GARTON

    What would you grow if you did not have a ton of space? What crops have the highest yield? What have the most nutrition? Here @Health And Homestead have distilled down what he would consider to be, for him, the most important (or easiest) crops to grow to help sustain your family.

    In line with my theme on factual agricultural history, I thought I would share some interesting information from Dr. Freda Wunderlich in her seminal book published by Princeton University. Between 1871 and 1900, 2.7 million Germans immigrated to the United States because they were treated as slaves in every aspect in their former country. They were predominantly "landfolk" (farmers and farm laborers). The United States is not the first place were socialists have attempted to misrepresent history and the plight of farmers. Dr. Wunderlich identified that one worker wrote as to why he chose a miserable life in Berlin over a life on the farm: " you and your lot were or amazed that we ran away. You gentlemen are responsible for it. We shall vote as the lord (of the estate/landowner) wants; we shall read with the lord permits; we shall keep our mouth shut about the suppression of the people; we shall stoop under the regiment of the Mr. Administrator - no". It is worth noting that these landfolk were not previously permitted to even pursue a different career without express permission of the lord of the estate. Furthermore, the children would also be born into the same work, and the majority of the landowners wanted them educated as little as possible - only enough to do their jobs, but not enough to want more. Clearly, the majority of those who immigrated during that timeframe chose a life of freedom over slavery. The result of this turmoil is what led to the rapid rise of the national socialist party in Germany. This is only one of many countries who contributed to our "melting pot" society, and why it is so crucial that we push back against false or misleading agricultural history

    The food you consume in the future maybe be grown in a local warehouse using renewable energy, lower transportation with no pesticides, fertilizers and 90% less water.
    Vertical Farming could change the industry of food production and sustainability and attracted over $1B financial investment in 2021.
    The question is not 'if' but 'how quickly' can it grow to scale - read the view here as part of the Natural Capital Technology series on innovation;

    Bradyrhizobium japonicum/Soybean rhizobia /the benefits &application

    By Sophia Cheng

    Published Aug 31 

    Soybean rhizobia (Latin name: Bradyrhizobium japonicum) are in the family bradyrhizobiaceae, the genus of soybean rhizobia. Rhizobia in soybean are live microbial agents rhizobia inside root nodules have mutually beneficial symbioses with legumes: organic matter that legumes make by photosynthesis, supplied in part to rhizobia; Rhizobia, which make ammonia through biological nitrogen fixation, then feed legumes. Rhizobium invades the roots of the host, stimulating some cells of the root cortex and the central column sheath, causing the strong growth of these cells, causing local enlargement of the roots to form nodules; Rhizobium settles in the roots, and plants supply Rhizobium with mineral nutrients and energy Rhizobium fixes the free nitrogen in the atmosphere and provides nitrogen nutrients for the plants. The two are in equilibrium in the antagonistic parasitic relationship and exhibit symbiosis. Rhizobia belong to symbiotic nitrogen fixation, nitrogen fixation efficiency is the highestBenefits Increase production and efficiencyAccording to the field demonstration results, the application of rhizobia in soybean can increase the soybean yield by more than 10%, the protein content of soybean can be increased by 2%, the crude fat content can be increased by 1-2%...

    Do you know what Strigolactone is ?Do you know the Benifit of Rac-GR24?

    By Sophia Cheng

    Published Aug 17 

    Strigolactones are a family of plant secondary metabolites whose first member strigol was isolated in 1966 from the root exudates of cotton and identified as the germination inducer for the parasitic weeds of Striga and Orobanchae species, so that suicidal germination of parasitic weeds controls the weed pests. Strigolactones are also shown to inhibit shoot branching and act as the key phytohormone influencing plant architecture. Rac-GR24 (Strigolactones) is currently found to have the following effects: 1. As an environmental stimulus signal: can induce weed seed germination, for example: column when such parasitic weeds. 2...

    Repost from Facebook Nat Lowndes

    THIS NEEDS TO GO VIRAL

    For those of you that think electric vehicles are the answer- this is a true story from a farmer in the Midwest- and I'm reposting it-
    A close friend farms over 10,000 acres of corn in the mid-west. The property is spread out over 3 counties. His operation is a "partnership farm" with John Deere. They use the larger farm operations as demonstration projects for promotion and development of new equipment.

    He recently received a phone call from his John Deere representative, and they want the farm to go to electric tractors and combines in 2023. He currently has 5 diesel combines that cost $900,000 each that are traded in every 3 years. Also, over 10 really BIG tractors.

    JD wants him to go all electric soon.

    He said: "Ok, I have some questions. How do I charge these combines when they are 3 counties away from the shop in the middle of a cornfield, in the middle of nowhere?" "How do I run them 24 hours a day for 10 or 12 days straight when the harvest is ready, and the weather is coming in?" "How do I get a 50,000+ lb. combine that takes up the width of an entire road back to the shop 20 miles away when the battery goes dead?"

    There was dead silence on the other end of the phone.

    When the corn is ready to harvest, it has to have the proper sugar and moisture content. If it is too wet, it has to be put in giant dryers that burn natural or propane gas, and lots of it. Harvest time is critical because if it degrades in sugar content or quality, it can drop the value of his crop by half a million dollars or more. It is analyzed at time of sale. It is standard procedure to run these machines 10 to 12 days straight, 24 hours a day at peak harvest time. When they need fuel, a tanker truck delivers it, and the machines keep going.

    John Deere's only answer is "we're working on it." They are being pushed by the lefty Dems in the government to force these electric machines on the American farmer. These people are out of control. They are messing with the production of food crops that feed people and livestock... all in the name of their "green dream."

    Look for the cost of your box of cornflakes to triple in the next 24 months..."

    Wake up! Stand up! Speak up!
    Let's return sanity to our nation.

    In The Laser Cladding System, Hot And Cold Wire Are Both Acceptable As Feedstocks

    By Sachiin Sadgir

    Published Aug 8 

    In the process of laser cladding, a metal coating is applied to a part's surface while a laser serves as the heat source. The procedure is frequently used to repair damaged or worn surfaces and produce a protective covering for greater functionality. Either a wire (including hot or cold wire) or powder feedstock can be used for Laser Cladding System. The wire or powder is simultaneously added to a molten pool that the laser creates on the workpiece's surface. Despite the laser's tremendous heat output, solidification and cooling times are quick due to the laser's short exposure time...

    "The drought hit a turning point in Texas last weekend as ranchers made a mad dash to the sale barns, liquidating unprecedented amounts of beef cattle.

    Cattle industry leader Corbitt Wall, host of the FEEDER FLASH at NationalBeefWire.com gives an update on drought conditions across Texas. In his words, the effects of this drought combined with economic factors (fuel and fertilizer prices) are "unbelievable" with 3 mile line of trailers for the dropoff line at Emory Texas sale barn. The sale barn received such a surplus that they were auctioning off cattle through 5am the next morning.
    This sale barn was 30 miles south of me. My local sale barn was packed and I was an eyewitness to these unbelievable lines.. It is real."
