    How to Create a Low-Input, High-Revenue System with Wide-Row Intercropping

    By Laura Barrera

    Published Dec 9

    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...

    Nutrient Stratification Not a Problem in No-Till

    By Laura Barrera

    Published Aug 13, 2018

    A common concern growers may have when they move to a no-till system is nutrient stratification. Without tillage to mix fertilizer into the soil, no-tillers may wonder whether the nutrients applied to the soil surface are reaching the crop roots. According to University of Nebraska Extension engineer Paul Jasa and Ray Ward, plant scientist and founder of Ward Laboratories in Kearney, Neb. , the resounding answer is: yes, they are. Even though stratification — the non-uniform distribution of nutrients within a soil’s depth, with higher concentrations of nutrients toward the soil surface — does occur in no-till, it should not be a concern...

    If you’ve considered using cereal rye as a cover crop in front of corn, you’ve probably been warned that your yield would suffer. And the truth is it might.

    Chitosan & mycorrhiza complement each other for soil healthy

    By Darren Chan

    Published Feb 12

    Researchers are studying the effects of chitosan on mycorrhiza. Good effects on mycorrhizal and root systems of related plants can be observed, leading to healthier crops growth and fruiting. The enzyme-resistant enzymes (chitinase) produced by plants are particularly effective against the phytopathogenic fungi cell wall, but they don’t have such function against the cell wall of mycorrhiza. It would be no harmful increase in the mycorrhiza, chitinase after observing the soil chitosan-treated. The increasing in lignification of plant cell walls after treatment with chitosan can defend the mycorrhizal fungi of arbuscular or ectodermal layers, because both of them were contacting the side roots of plants near the root crown, meanwhile the rhizomes are completed and form the root hairs...

    Introduction of MycorrhizaExcessive dependence on chemical fertilizers can result in the destruction of a large number of beneficial microbial communities in the soil and a decrease in soil activity. To improve the current soil ecosystem with serious damage and improve soil fertility, it is imperative to supplement soil beneficial microorganisms. The application of microbial fertilizer is the most direct and effective method. Symbiotic bacteria are fungi that need to grow with plants, but do not harm plants and they are beneficial to plant growth. The symbiotic bacteria can grow together with the roots of some plants to form a special symbiont-exogenous mycorrhiza, which exchanges substances with each other through the mycorrhiza...
