At the same time, hundreds of farm technician job listings across the US, and the rise of precision agriculture and software, clearly evidence the need for technologically-savvy farm technicians in the 21st century agricultural industry. It’s no surprise that tech-friendly millennials interested in farming are encouraged by these developments, which may make farming less labor intensive than in generations past. Technology may even be the antidote to a number of ills plaguing modern agriculture, which have led to a drastic decrease in the number of farms across the United States...

    Amending vs. Fertilizing

    By Accidental Agronomist

    Published 1 years, 1 month ago

    Is a soil test the end all be all to a fertility program – no. However, it is the foundation for building a plan to manage the health and fertility of your soil and crops. Getting testing done before fall gives you the time needed to make critical decisions regarding amending and fertilizing, ultimately helping you to get the most financially and environmentally from your fertility program... Some amendments, as in the case of Biochar, have long-term fertility consequences that need to be considered. Understanding the why, how, and where you are using an amendment and basing it on your soil conditions and type, before using it in a fertility program will ensure you get the most benefit from it...

    What’s the function of Mycorrhiza?

    By Darren Chan

    Published 7 months ago

    Introduction of MycorrhizaExcessive dependence on chemical fertilizers can result in the destruction of a large number of beneficial microbial communities in the soil and a decrease in soil activity. To improve the current soil ecosystem with serious damage and improve soil fertility, it is imperative to supplement soil beneficial microorganisms. The application of microbial fertilizer is the most direct and effective method. Symbiotic bacteria are fungi that need to grow with plants, but do not harm plants and they are beneficial to plant growth. The symbiotic bacteria can grow together with the roots of some plants to form a special symbiont-exogenous mycorrhiza, which exchanges substances with each other through the mycorrhiza...

    5 reasons to choose chitosan oligosaccharide in organic agriculture

    By Darren Chan

    Published 6 months ago

    In the application of agricultural production, chitosan oligosaccharides not only make crops grow better and robust, but also has obvious effects in stress resistance and pest resistance. Numerous studies have shown that chitosan oligosaccharides can induce broad-spectrum resistance, enhance the plant’s own defense ability, inhibit the growth of a variety of plant pathogenic microorganisms, and it is non-toxic and can be microbial degradation, and will not pollute the environment. This makes it an important role in agricultural production as a new type of green production. 1... Soil conditionerUsing chitosan oligosaccharide as an additive, soil beneficial bacteria such as actinomycetes can be increased by 1,000 times, harmful bacteria such as Fusarium and nematodes can be significantly reduced, soil fertility can be enhanced, soil can be fundamentally improved, root knot can be cured, and soil can be improved...
