    The Advantages of Subsurface Drip Irrigation in Corn Production

    By Mario Petkovski

    Published Sep 9  

    What is Subsurface Drip Irrigation?Subsurface Drip Irrigation (SDI) is a way of irrigating crops through plastic tubes placed under the soil surface. The tubes have droplet emitters with even spacings, similar to the drip system located on the soil surface. There are different pipe arrangement variations, but the pipes are usually placed at a distance of 38 to 84 and at a depth of 6 to 10 below the soil surface. In the United States, SDI is widely used to irrigate annual crops; elsewhere, the irrigation system is popularly used for orchards and other perennials. SDI systems require intensive management and come with high initial costs of up to $1,000 /acre...

    Fertilizer management to improve yields

    By Miriam Pitzalis

    Updated Aug 20  

    Grain yield is strongly influenced by various factors, such as soil characteristics, irrigation, genetics, climate, cultivation techniques, and use of fertilizers. Fertilizers contribute incisively to the final production. To develop optimal fertilizer recommendations, it is necessary to determine the status of plant-available nutrients. The right fertilizer doses avoid incurring saline stress or nutritional deficiencies that lead to yield losses. What elements should growers consider besides the results of a soil test?The chemical-physical analysis of the soil is only a starting point to accurately establish the nutrient requirements of plant growth...

    Early planting: risks and benefits

    By Miriam Pitzalis

    Updated Aug 20  

    Over the years, with the advent of climate change, the growing need to maximize production yields and the introduction of new stress-tolerant hybrids, early planting of corn has become an increasingly widespread agricultural practice. In reality, what are the benefits and risks of early planting, which lead producers to adopt this cultivation technique?Early planting benefitsOne of the main reasons why early planting is favored is the possibility of obtaining earlier flowering, which improves the photosynthetic efficiency during the period with greater availability of solar irradiance. A second benefit is to limit exposure to heat and water stress on the crop in the most sensitive phenological phases: the maximum evapotranspiration occurs at the beginning of summer when the soil water reserve is greater and can compensate for the evapotranspiration demand. Early planting also induces in the plant greater resistance against the attacks of the second generation of the pyralid: the gnawing caused by the larvae in the stalks provokes less damage, as the grain is in the physiological maturity stage (growth stage R5-R6). 1: Damage from pyralid on corn planting on March 15th...

    Comparison between pivot and drip irrigation in corn cultivation

    By Miriam Pitzalis

    Updated Aug 19  

    The main problem concerning corn cultivation is water stress: the most critical phases that suffer from water shortages, which can lead to significant production losses, are from the emission of the plume to flowering and the ripening stage. In order to obtain high yields, it is necessary to satisfy the evapotranspiration demand of the crop, which is between 0. 16 and 0. 22 inches/yard per day. For this reason, it becomes essential to select an efficient and economical irrigation system...

    Updated Aug 1  

    As the most important crop in North America, corn production has been growing steadily from 1930 until today. There are two periods where the yield of American farmers has increased significantly. The first is the last years of the Dust Bowl and the Great Depression, where farmers begin to adopt double-cross hybrids with a yield increase of 0. 8 per bushel per acre per year. The second period, significant for US corn production, started in the mid-1950s due to intensive modification of genetic potential, increased use of nitrogen fertilizers and chemical pesticides, and the use of more sophisticated agricultural machinery...

    Are Nitrogen Stabilizers Worth Using? 3 Factors to Consider

    By Laura Barrera

    Updated May 26  

    When it comes to fertility in crop production, nitrogen is one of the most critical nutrients involved. “Nitrogen plays an important part in many essential functions and compounds necessary for life,” says the University of Missouri Extension and can be found in various parts of plants. Unfortunately, nitrogen fertilizer is susceptible to leaving the soil before it can be used up by the plant. According to Cornell University Cooperative Extension, nitrogen loss can occur in three ways:Denitrification: Nitrate converts into gaseous forms of nitrogen which are lost to the atmosphere Volatilization: Ammonium (NH4) converts to ammonia (NH3) gas which is released to the atmosphere Leaching: Nitrate, which is negatively charged like soil particles and not well retained by the soil, is washed downward by excess soil water beyond the root zone of crops. One way to reduce the loss of nitrogen is by using nitrogen stabilizers...

    Published Dec 9, 2019  

    In Gaston, Ind. , Jason Mauck is farming a little differently from his neighbors. Unlike the typical corn-and-soybean monocropping system, for the last 5 years Mauck has been doing low population, wide-row relay intercropping. So far he has seen success with soybeans into wheat, but he’s also working on corn intercropped with a legume. Inspired by the results he saw from interplanting and using low populations in the landscape business he started prior to farming full-time, his goal is to capitalize on sunshine, wheat and hog manure — annually Mauck has about 5 million gallons from his 25,000 finishing hogs operation...

    Early planting: risks and benefits

    By Miriam Pitzalis

    Updated Aug 20  

    Over the years, with the advent of climate change, the growing need to maximize production yields and the introduction of new stress-tolerant hybrids, early planting of corn has become an increasingly widespread agricultural practice. In reality, what are the benefits and risks of early planting, which lead producers to adopt this cultivation technique?Early planting benefitsOne of the main reasons why early planting is favored is the possibility of obtaining earlier flowering, which improves the photosynthetic efficiency during the period with greater availability of solar irradiance. A second benefit is to limit exposure to heat and water stress on the crop in the most sensitive phenological phases: the maximum evapotranspiration occurs at the beginning of summer when the soil water reserve is greater and can compensate for the evapotranspiration demand. Early planting also induces in the plant greater resistance against the attacks of the second generation of the pyralid: the gnawing caused by the larvae in the stalks provokes less damage, as the grain is in the physiological maturity stage (growth stage R5-R6). 1: Damage from pyralid on corn planting on March 15th...

    Are Nitrogen Stabilizers Worth Using? 3 Factors to Consider

    By Laura Barrera

    Updated May 26  

    When it comes to fertility in crop production, nitrogen is one of the most critical nutrients involved. “Nitrogen plays an important part in many essential functions and compounds necessary for life,” says the University of Missouri Extension and can be found in various parts of plants. Unfortunately, nitrogen fertilizer is susceptible to leaving the soil before it can be used up by the plant. According to Cornell University Cooperative Extension, nitrogen loss can occur in three ways:Denitrification: Nitrate converts into gaseous forms of nitrogen which are lost to the atmosphere Volatilization: Ammonium (NH4) converts to ammonia (NH3) gas which is released to the atmosphere Leaching: Nitrate, which is negatively charged like soil particles and not well retained by the soil, is washed downward by excess soil water beyond the root zone of crops. One way to reduce the loss of nitrogen is by using nitrogen stabilizers...
