    Can You Use Legume Cover Crops in Your Peanut Rotation?

    By Laura Barrera

    Published Aug 31, 2018  

    ”Growing peanuts and other legume crops too close in rotation to peanuts can result in white mold (shown in photo) or Cylindrocladium black rot on the peanut crop... And because peanuts are a legume, it’s discouraged from growing other legumes in rotation with them. But what about using a legume cover crop? Can you include a legume like crimson clover in a cover crop mix that will be seeded on a field that includes peanuts in the rotation?The answer is a little more complicated than just yes or no. Avoid Legumes Before Peanuts; Use Grasses InsteadBalkcom believes the rule of avoiding legumes before peanuts also applies to legume cover crops, and points out that the typical intended purpose of growing a legume cover, doesn’t make sense for growing in front a peanut crop anyway... “Well in this case, peanuts are also a legume, so they don’t have that nitrogen requirement...

    Canada Agriculture Day: Water Pollution from Agriculture

    By Cierra Bray

    Published Mar 26, 2018  

    February 13, 2018February 13th, 2018 is the 2nd annual Canada’s Agriculture Day – a time to celebrate and draw a closer connection between Canadians, our food and the people who produce it. Our theme this year is Water Pollution from Agriculture, which is a global challenge that has increased in both developed and developing countries, undermining economic growth as well as the physical and environmental health of billions of people... Farms discharge large quantities of agrochemicals, organic matter, drug residues, sediments and saline drainage into water bodies... How can farmers reduce these devastating impacts on our environment you ask? Without the initiation of the new guideline by governments, it is up to farms to take these matters into their own hands... Leading the way are drones which are a wonderful technology that can support farmers to reduce their use of water, fertilizer, herbicides, and pesticides...

    Struggling with Soil Temperature During Planting? Cover Crops Can Help

    By Laura Barrera

    Updated Aug 17, 2020  

    You can pick the right seed, use the right equipment, apply the right inputs, and plant at the right depth, but without the right soil temperature, your crops are likely to struggle. One practice that can help fix that? Cover crops. Why Soil Temperature MattersWhile soil temperature has an impact on the soil and crop production throughout the growing season, the NRCS says it’s most critical at planting, when it drives seed germination and directly affects plant growth... The soil has to warm up to a certain degree for plants to get off to a good start, but if it continues to heat up and does so rapidly, that can harm plant growth... How Cover Crops Stabilize Soil TemperatureTo understand how cover crops can buffer against rapid changes in soil temperature, we first need to understand what causes soil to warm up quickly...
