    By Christopher Keen

    Published Oct 29, 2019

    When a retired farmer and organic farming consultant is motivated to put his boots back on and get back into the fields, you know something special is happening. That’s exactly how Daniel Rotberg felt when he studied the first GroAloe trial conducted on grapes with a major leafhopper infestation. The trial shows that, “The overall health of the Vineyard has completely transformed from weak and in some places, diseased plants, to a robust and healthy condition with many more grape shoots now forming. What is even more encouraging is that all of the new growth has not been bitten by any new or pre-existing leafhoppers...

    Top 5 Reasons Why Black Oats Are The Best Beginner's Cover Crop

    By Cover Crops

    Published Sep 14, 2018

    It's a fact: cover crops tend to make good farmers into great farmers and average farmers into bad farmers... There are cover crop choices that will make your first foray into cover crops a profitable and enjoyable experience... Also, black oats tiller faster than regular oats and other cereal grains, making them more forgiving in tough planting conditions... What does this mean? The lower C-to-N ratio will allow the black oats to break down quicker than cereal rye, returning valuable nutrients and organic particles back into your dirt that can be used by the crop immediately following the cover crops. This also means that when nitrogen is applied to the cash crop following the covers, the nitrogen won't get tied up in trying to break down the cellulose of the cover crops but will contribute to the cash crop at a fairly rapid pace...

In November 2013, he began working with five farmers (on five fields, 13 management units, making up around 50 acres in three counties) on the coastal plain of South Carolina, to increase their soil organic nitrogen with cover crops in order to cut back on their nitrogen fertilizer needs... In another study where Kloot and his graduate student, Gabe Kenne, looked at 438 soil samples taken in two counties in South Carolina in the falls of 2015 and 2017, organic matter increased from an average 2...
