    The Advantages of Subsurface Drip Irrigation in Corn Production

    By Mario Petkovski

    Published Sep 9, 2020 

    What is Subsurface Drip Irrigation?Subsurface Drip Irrigation (SDI) is a way of irrigating crops through plastic tubes placed under the soil surface. The tubes have droplet emitters with even spacings, similar to the drip system located on the soil surface. There are different pipe arrangement variations, but the pipes are usually placed at a distance of 38 to 84 and at a depth of 6 to 10 below the soil surface. In the United States, SDI is widely used to irrigate annual crops; elsewhere, the irrigation system is popularly used for orchards and other perennials... demonstrated an increase in yield in alfalfa production with an SDI system at a depth of 2...

    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... Should You Use Inoculants?If you’re growing a perennial like alfalfa or a crop that’s going to be there for 10 years, then applying an inoculant may provide a jumpstart for AMF, says Berns...

    Plant Genetic Modification by CRISPR/CAS9 Now Available at Lifeasible

    By Isla Miller

    Published Jul 30 

    Lifeasible, a world leading biotechnology company specialized in agricultural science, now offers plant genetic modification by CRISPR/CAS9 to provided engineered plants with enhanced properties. CRISPR/Cas9 gene editing is a technique for rapid editing of genomic DNA with very high efficiency and specificity, and its mechanism is the same as that used by prokaryotes to defend against viral or other foreign DNA invasion. Cas9 is an RNA-guided DNA endonuclease associated with CRISPR. SgRNAs (single-guideRNAs) are packaged with multiple crRNAs and tracrRNA that can bind Cas9 and direct this complex to complementary sequences in the target DNA... “With fully-fledged transgenic technologies in many species such as Arabidopsis, rice, wheat, alfalfa, corn, cotton, sorghum, soybean, sugarbeet, cabbage, tobacco, eggplant, cucumber, potato, petunia, oilseed rape, we are equipped to serve the diverse requirements of our customers...

    I have a dirty mind because

    By Monica Pape

    Published Mar 12, 2018 

    I Think Like an AgronomistThe idea of thinking like an agronomist has come up in several conversations lately. I was at a conference recently and asked how I would have answered a question asked by a farmer... I was young and wanted to look at canola, sorghum, and alfalfa; I thought that was where the real action was. Back then I thought there was nothing cooler than finding spittlebug in alfalfa. I can still hear my dad and Ed telling me that alfalfa is the queen of the farm...

    September Cover Crop Corner: Economic Series Part One: Reducing Inputs

    By Feed the Soil, Feed the World

    Published Sep 20 

    In part one of this two-part series on the economics of cover crops, we explore how they can help reduce input costs. By GO SEED“Yeah, the principle of cover crops makes sense but how much are they going to cost me?” From farmers using them in rotations to field experts alike, this is one of the most common questions they get asked when discussing the integration of cover crops. And in a business where inputs can quickly get out of hand and cut into thin profit margins, it is understandably so... “We’d taken an operating loan out to buy alfalfa for winter feed... As a result, the only bought-in feed costs the farm currently has are a few loads of alfalfa each year and carrot pulp that cows receive to encourage them into the milking parlor...
