  • Should You Rotate Your Cover Crops? 4 Issues to Consider

    By Laura Barrera

    Published 1 years, 2 months ago

    Growing different crops back to back provides several benefits, such as preventing pests and disease, improving soil health and reducing fertilizer inputs, all of which can boost your crop yields and your bottom line... com and is an agronomist for Legacy Seeds, says there is value in rotating — especially if you’re using brassicas and peas. Avoiding clubroot with rotationRobison warns that if you continually utilize brassicas in your cover crop mix, you need to consider doing some level of rotation... While this can result in an unhealthy cover crop, for farmers who grow brassicas as a cash crop — especially canola — the disease can be detrimental... Robison saw first hand how this disease can impact crop growth when he did some work with Ed Ballard, now retired University of Illinois Extension Animal Systems Educator...

    Can You Use Legume Cover Crops in Your Peanut Rotation?

    By Laura Barrera

    Published 12 months ago

    So it really makes no sense to buy a legume cover crop that’s going to be more expensive than, say, your traditional grass cover crops... The SARE publication,“Managing Cover Crops Profitably,” references a paper by the University of Georgia that also says that using small grain cover crops in conservation tillage systems have been shown to reduce peanut yield losses from Tomato Spotted Wilt Virus (TSWV) — and the greater the residue left from the cover, the lower the incidence of TSWV... “Because our soils are sandy soils, we don’t maintain nitrogen in our soils generally,” he explains... While these farmers typically use a grass cover after the cotton before going back to peanuts, Balkcom says ideally you’d want to increase the amount of time between that legume cover crop and your peanut crop... One example of this is a 3-year rotation Phatak shared in “Managing Cover Crops Profitably,” noting that he typically used it when working with cotton and peanut growers who wanted to diversify their farms...

    Prevented Planting? Cover Crops Offer a Silver Lining

    By Laura Barrera

    Published 1 month ago

    The USDA’s Risk Management Agency (RMA) is also allowing farmers to hay, graze or chop cover crops on prevented plant acres earlier this year, with final grazing and haying being moved from Nov... “They’re going to spend money keeping the field weed-free all summer long,” she says... ”In addition to weed control, cover crops also prevent negative consequences from leaving the soil fallow. Carlson says that studies have shown corn crops following bare or chemical-fallow fields experience phosphorus stress because the mycorrhizal fungi — the biology that makes phosphorus plant-available — severely decreases in population when it doesn’t have access to plant roots, its food source. “That creates fallow syndrome, which is basically phosphorus stress,” Carlson explains...

    When is it Too Late to Seed Cover Crops?

    By Laura Barrera

    Published 7 months ago

    And if you plan on seeding your cover crops after your crops are off, you have the added challenge of trying to get them seeded in a timely manner. Depending on how late it gets, you may wonder whether it’s even worth seeding them at all... The General Manager of cover crop seed company Future Generation Ag explains that your weather conditions, location, the number of acres you have, the species of cash crop you’re coming from and going to, as well as equipment, all play a role in determining whether it’s too late to get your cover crops seeded... “It’s never too late to plant cover crops, but if you wanted the benefit in the fall and early winter, then it’s too late,” he says... “Usually we can’t forecast the weather, but if you look at the long-term forecast that NOAA puts out, that may give you a good indication of what that chance is...

    How Yield Champions Use Cover Crops for Growing Higher Bushels

    By Laura Barrera

    Published 1 years, 3 months ago

    5 bushelsPlanting corn after corn usually results in a yield hit in the subsequent corn crop. While Russell Hedrick didn’t intend for his yield-winning corn to follow corn — most of his farm is in a corn-soybean rotation, occasionally with some small grains — it proved just how beneficial cover crops can be in a mono-cropping situation... His intention with the small grains was to sequester carbon, build soil organic matter, suppress weeds and improve the soil’s water retention as well as water infiltration rates, while the legumes were used for balancing the carbon-to-nitrogen ratio... Typically a farmer would have to apply 320 units of nitrogen to achieve those kinds of yields, but Hedrick only applied 140 units, adding that the stalk nitrate samples they pulled after harvest indicated they could’ve gone with as little as 100 units... “Those cover crops coming into the equation have really helped us with our profitability...

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

    By Amanda Allworth

    Published 1 years, 6 days ago

    Roundup Ready corn and soybeans quickly became the norm in fields across the United States, and as a result, application of glyphosate increased dramatically... But what farmers didn’t realize is that by relying so heavily on glyphosate, they were actually selecting for glyphosate-tolerant weed populations in their fields. In the wild, some weeds naturally have genetic mutations that make them more tolerant of specific chemistries, including glyphosate... This process continued with each application of glyphosate, and eventually, fields exploded with resistant weeds that traditional herbicide programs couldn’t control... Trends in glyphosate herbicide use in the United States and globally...

    How Cover Crops Affect Your Fertilizer Strategy

    By Laura Barrera

    Published 1 years, 2 months ago

    For example, if a grower is using cereal rye and there is residual nitrogen from the previous cropping season in the soil, a good establishment of rye can hold that nitrogen, which will eventually be available for the next crop... Generally speaking, Pike says the longer the cover crop — especially cereal rye — is allowed to develop before termination, the greater the lignin formation in the biomass. This means it’ll take longer to break down and allow for nutrient release than vegetation at earlier stages of development. Pike points out that cover crops holding onto residual nitrogen is a good thing as far as environmental stewardship is concerned, but that it also creates a challenge in some situations, because it may not be available for the future crop at the time it needs it... “Either a small amount applied in-furrow with a starter application or a 2-by-2 treatment that’s going to be available soon after the corn emerges, to where it’s got that quick source of nitrogen...

    This Earth Day, let us remember those who are actually In The Arena

    By AgFuse Administrator

    Published 1 years, 4 months ago

    Farmers seem to be easy targets these days. We are bad because we grow GMO crops (so that we can spray less pesticides) and we are bad when we spray our crops with pesticides (but it’s non-GMO!)... However, for those of us who are actually “in the arena”, we know the truth about what we do and the impacts (both good and bad) our farming practices have on the earth... The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat... Cover crops, no-till, crop system diversity, variable rate fertilizing, even GMOs (yes GMOs!) are all contributing towards a sustainable farming industry...

    Who has been growing plants longer? Nature or man?

    A strong case for working with nature to improve soil structure versus feeding the crop only.
    Water and nutrient efficiency are critical. The common denominator for all crops is SOIL...so, how are you treating your soil?
