    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...

    Published Mar 30

It is our goal at FS6 to aggregate information and to identify the gaps in support; we need to work together to realign resources in support of those that are working to feed the American population and to help those that are focused on raising food locally, sustainably, and humanely to weather the challenging times ahead... → Needs support from: Upstream industry leaders, supply chain management, processors, distributors, industry organizations with visibility into supply/demand gaps, eCommerce experts, technology platforms that aggregate on-farm availability, Human Resources departments2) Cash flow:The need for cash-flow into the industry is crucial right now. This includes increasing cash flow for advanced processing, capital for processors, and financial support for the farmers and ranchers who are risking taking on debt as we head into a recession. If you are a vendor who has the capacity to renegotiate your contract terms so that farmers and ranchers get paid upon delivery, this is a great way to infuse cash into the industry right now...

    By Robert Morgan

    Published Jun 13, 2018

    Muscarella and Vetsuypens present data showing the pattern of leverage for a sample of 72 firms that were taken private in LBOs and returned to public ownership through stock offerings about three years later... Key management personnel could be provided with a significant equity ownership either through their own investments or the improvements they achieve in operating performance. The gains to managers would have significant impact on their wealth positions...

    By Gregory Heilers

    Published Sep 9, 2018

    In this article, we’re going to cover how young farmers can start from the ground up, even if they don’t come from a family of farmers... As Jason pointed out, that can be compounded by many coming from academia, as financial woes “often include student loan debt... In addition, Jason recommended “farm business planning courses offered through state extension services, local organizations, or state departments of agriculture... Land For Good’s work includes helping beginning farmers in New England “think through these options, such as rental agreements, to better allow them to start a farm on a financial scale they feel comfortable with... Jason made sure to offer the following caveat: “This advice certainly depends on what kind of operation, what scale, and perhaps what region of the country a beginning farmer might find themselves in...

Arkansas, North Carolina and Texas all set records in mid-June for the number of people entering hospitals for COVID-19...
