    How Brazilian Big Agriculture is Destroying the Brazilian Amazon

    By Maria Dampman

    Published Apr 4, 2018 

    The rampant deforestation of the Amazon began in the 1970s when the government of Brazil determined they needed to build over 9,000 miles of roads help integrate the rainforest with the populated bordering areas... Farmers, loggers and cattle ranchers cleared forest to create grazing land as well as to grow highly profitable crops like soy... Widespread contamination of Brazil’s soil and water, the marked decrease of oxygen in the Earth’s atmosphere and the extinction of countless plants and animals made scientists extremely concerned about the planet’s future... At its worst, Brazilian deforestation claimed over 11,000 square miles a year. With education, advocacy, and widespread support of the Brazilian government, the destruction of the vital forests dropped 84% to 1,700 square miles in 2012...

    Top 4 ways to stimulate root growth

    By Darren Chan

    Published Sep 3, 2019 

    Importance of healthy rootsFirst, they anchor the plant in place, resisting the forces of wind and running water or mudflow. Secondly, the root system takes in oxygen, water and nutrients from the soil, to move them up through the plant to the stems, leaves, and blooms. where they can interact with sunlight to produce sugars and energy for the plant. Last but not least, scientists have recently discovered that roots actually secrete compounds that affect the microorganisms in the soil, which can help protect the plants from disease and encourage it to absorb nutrients from the soil. Top 4 ways to promote root growth1...

    What Farmers Need to Know About Mycorrhizae

    By Laura Barrera

    Published Nov 2, 2018 

    If someone asked you, “How do plants take up the water and nutrients they need?” you’d probably tell them through the roots. But did you know that for many crops, those roots aren’t working alone?That’s because most plant species associate with mycorrhizal fungi. What is mycorrhizal fungi? University of Alberta biological scientist JC Cahill says that mycorrhizas are actually the interaction between a fungus and a plant. Although there are many different types of mycorrhizae, the only one crop farmers need to be concerned about is arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF), as 65% of plant species associate with it. A microscopic view of an arbuscular mycorrhizal fungus growing on a corn root...

    Early blight and late blight are the most common diseases on tomato & potato. They usually take huge losses to farmers.

First, we need to how to recognize their symptoms.

    Why Mycorrhiza is important in Agriculture

    By Darren Chan

    Published Jul 12, 2019 

    There is no doubt that mycorrhizae play the important role in plant growth. They help build soil aggregate structure to provides plant roots with a better & healthy environment to healthy and strong growth. Their symbiotic relationship with plants helps them access extra water and nutrients source in soil. How does it workMycorrhizal spores germinate when in contact with plant roots and form filaments (hyphae), which create a symbiotic relationship increasing the plants ability to uptake fixed nutrients and water, improving plant performance. Mycorrhizal fungi increase the surface absorbing area of roots 100 to a 1,000 times, thereby greatly improving the ability of the plant to access soil resources...

    #AgHistory

    Ok - so I have had to take some time away from #AgHistory as I myself am getting my own farm ready for the season, and working in between boughts of bad weather. As a side note, my grandpappy used to say one is never nearer to God than when farming (because we are always praying for something - better weather, more rain, less rain, etc.). While I am adopting no-till on my farm, I have had to break ground none-the-less in order to eliminate some resistant plow pan in certain parts of my small field. Being on a budget, I had to borrow the neighbors 2 bottom plow (an older international harvester of amazing quality). Tuning that to the depth I had hoped to plow took longer than I thought, and this no longer had coulters (and the landside was well worn). At least the furrow wheel was functional. My first time with a traditional plow was a hot mess, and this time I was reminded of how much pride must have been had in ones ability to keep tight and true rows (I do not yet have that proficiency - Ha!). I was also reminded of how challenging the first settlers livelihoods were during this country's settlement. The pilgrims had no plows for the first 12 years (only hoes and mattocks). In 1636, there were only 30 plows in all of the Massachusettss Bay Colony. Plows were mentioned in the inventories of only 16 of 58 estates in Essex County from 1636. A century later they were far more common, but made of wood. Even after the shares were made of iron, the moldboard was still made of wood. Additionally, these were all locally made, and subject to the whims of local ploughwright. Often, these would require 2 men and a boy to plow; one to manhandle the plow, one to continually force the plow into the ground by riding the beam, and the boy to scrape mud from the moldboard. Later, in 1798 Thomas Jefferson mathematically proved that a general design for a plow could be mass produced for use everywhere (letter to Sir John Sinclair, printed in the American Philosophical Society in 1799). In 1797 designed a cast iron plow that was never accepted, in part because it was said that cast iron poisoned the soil and promoted weed growth. With what we now know about our weed-banks, the second myth may actually have had some truth to it as this plow undoubtedly turned soil more efficiently. Note that it wasnt until 1839 that a moldboard was designed to actually turn and pulverize the soil (Samuel Witherow and David Pierce). Fast forward, and we can see in hindsight how these developments improved our abilities to feed our families and society. In 1830, when grain was sown by hand it required 55.7 man-hours (per acre) to sow and harvest wheat. In 1896, with horse drawn equipment the same took 8.8 man-hours. In 1930 using a tractor and drill it took only 3.3 man-hours. SO much more can be said on the subject, and I would argue that there is no other single area of specialization than this which has permitted the growth and health of our nation.
