    By Laura Barrera

    Published 8 months ago

    4 Steps to Building Soil Organic Matter in the South

    By Laura Barrera

    Published 1 years, 2 months ago

    As we learn more about what goes on in the world beneath our feet, increased attention has been placed on soil organic matter. And for good reason. While it only makes up a small percentage of most soils, the Sustainable Agriculture Research & Education (SARE) says it’s the “very foundation for healthy and productive soils” — and the more organic matter there is, the better the results... ”He notes that weeds typically aren’t interested in forming mycorrhizal relationships in the soil, because their goal is to grow quickly, spread their seeds, die and get another generation of weeds out there... , identifies 66 different crop species by these classifications, as well as growth cycle, relative water use, plant architecture, seeding depth, forage quality, pollination characteristics and nutrient cycling...

    Why Hemp Isn’t Going to Save the US Farmer (But How It Could)

    By The Crossover

    Published 1 month ago

    Also, I’m concerned that hemp production is positioning itself as a “get rich quick” scheme for agriculture, and is attracting the same hucksters that flock to any new fad that they think they can exploit for a dollar...

Things that we take for granted with other crops, like finding quality seed or agronomic products, won’t be as solid and consistent with a new crop like hemp...

    20 Years Later: What Roundup Ready Crops Taught Us About Weed Management

    By Amanda Allworth

    Published 1 years, 1 month ago

    As new herbicide and seed products, including dicamba and 2,4-D tolerant crops, are introduced, we can take learnings from the Roundup Ready era and develop smarter weed management programs. What went wrong?There’s no doubt that glyphosate and Roundup Ready crops revolutionized modern agriculture... So, those populations of weeds that had a natural tolerance to glyphosate weren’t adequately controlled, and instead, they matured and produced seed that led to the next generation of herbicide-resistant weeds... One way to confirm weeds are indeed resistant is to send tissue or seed samples to a lab for verification... Don’t let history repeat itselfThe new 2,4-D and dicamba-tolerant seed and chemistry technologies are coming at a time when farmers are in dire need of solutions to help combat herbicide-resistant weeds...
