    The Advantages of Subsurface Drip Irrigation in Corn Production

    By Mario Petkovski

    Published Sep 9, 2020 

    SDI systems require intensive management and come with high initial costs of up to $1,000 /acre... Using SDI also has a positive effect on the environment through reduced nitrate leakage in the lower soil layers, unlike other irrigation systems... Hence, the optimizations that come along with SDI systems can end up leading to higher yields and reduced usage of herbicides... The system's average lifespan is 12 to 15 years, although some systems with continuous maintenance have reached up to 20 years... Smith and Riley (1992) [1] observed lower levels of corn earworm damage in crops with controlled irrigation...

    What Agribusiness Data Can and Can't Tell You

    By Marjorie Valin

    Published Aug 2 

    In agribusiness, big data means collecting everything... The end goal of all this data aggregationCustomized recommendations are the end goal of aggregated data... As planter technology advances, we’re starting to sow entirely different seeds in different parts of the field to take advantage of the unique properties of the land... Now multiply that tenfold as suddenly you need to account for which fields need to be harvested first because of the performance of a particular seed that year, or having to load up three times as many bags of seeds because now each field has three different varieties. Data has become agribusiness' greatest asset and its Achilles heel...

    Supporting Small-to-Midsized Agriculture and Localized Food Distribution During COVID-19

    By Melissa Rouse

    Published Mar 30, 2020 

    Summary of Needs In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are seeing a variety of challenges emerge for the farmers, ranchers, processors, and producers that are working across US agriculture to keep our country fed... It is our goal at FS6 to aggregate information and to identify the gaps in support; we need to work together to realign resources in support of those that are working to feed the American population and to help those that are focused on raising food locally, sustainably, and humanely to weather the challenging times ahead... → Needs support from: Upstream industry leaders, supply chain management, processors, distributors, industry organizations with visibility into supply/demand gaps, eCommerce experts, technology platforms that aggregate on-farm availability, Human Resources departments2) Cash flow:The need for cash-flow into the industry is crucial right now... What this means will vary from plant-to-plant but it could look like:increasing cold chain storage infrastructure for those that are dealing with an influx of demand,aggregating existing supply to the places where there is capacity,logistics support for moving product to and from processing facilities,and/or providing capital for those needing to either expand capacity or just stay open through an uncertain supply and demand cycle... → Need support from: Logistics companies, those with connections to or resources for supporting logistics, cold chain storage, also need to move live animals from farms to processors, finished goods from processors to customers...

    How Brazilian Big Agriculture is Destroying the Brazilian Amazon

    By Maria Dampman

    Published Apr 4, 2018 

    For a while, the work of many environmental groups, agencies and celebrities had been able to slow the unchecked destruction of forest land... The forest Code was first adopted in 1965 as a way to allow farmers to purchase and farm land in the Amazon with the caveat that they may only farm a small percentage of the land. However, with the limited governmental ability to oversee the development of an enormous dense forest just slightly smaller than the continent of Australia, it wasn’t a surprise to anyone when eager farmers and cattlemen started to illegally clear additional land. When this has happened in the past, huge fines have been levied against the offending parties as well as the requirement to return the cleared lands back to forest, making the risk not worth the potential consequences... According to Brazil’s space agency that tracks deforestation through satellite imaging, over 1,000 square miles (more than twice the size of Los Angeles) was cleared in the period of August 2012 to July 2013...

The forest Code was first adopted in 1965 as a way to allow farmers to purchase and farm land in the Amazon with the caveat that they may only farm a small percentage of the land. However, with the limited governmental ability to oversee the development of an enormous dense forest just slightly smaller than the continent of Australia, it wasn’t a surprise to anyone when eager farmers and cattlemen started to illegally clear additional land. When this has happened in the past, huge fines have been levied against the offending parties as well as the requirement to return the cleared lands back to forest, making the risk not worth the potential consequences... According to Brazil’s space agency that tracks deforestation through satellite imaging, over 1,000 square miles (more than twice the size of Los Angeles) was cleared in the period of August 2012 to July 2013...

    By Anonymous Member

    Published Mar 20, 2020 

    Since most university nutrient recommendations were established prior to catalytic converters becoming commonplace, do you feel that sulfur fertilizer is needed in a greater amount than what is being suggested based on older recommendations?

    We have received a lot of interest in our ag weather forecasts from outside of Manitoba. To gauge demand for expansion into other provinces/states, we are surveying farmers from outside Manitoba. The feedback we receive from farmers in Alberta, Saskatchewan, Montana, and North Dakota will determine whether expansion of services takes place this year. If you live in these regions make sure to share the survey with anyone that might be interested! Click the link below to complete the survey.

    "The United States Department of Agriculture is authorizing emergency procedures to help agricultural producers impacted by extreme drought conditions. ... Emergency procedures allow insurance companies to accept delayed notices of loss in certain situations, streamline paperwork, and reduce the number of required representative samples when damage is consistent. These flexibilities will reduce burdens on both insurance companies and producers to help mitigate drought effects."
