    What Farmers Need to Know About Mycorrhizae

    By Laura Barrera

    Published Nov 2, 2018

    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. A microscopic view of an arbuscular mycorrhizal fungus growing on a corn root... And barring anything extreme that’s happened to your fields — such as mining or a toxic spill — your soils should already have AMF in it, says Miranda Hart, a soil microbial ecologist at the University of British Columbia...

    What’s the function of Mycorrhiza?

    By Darren Chan

    Published Jan 2, 2019

    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 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. Therefore, people call it ectomycorrhizal fungi. It is estimated that plants with mycorrhiza account for about 97% among the known flowering plants in the world...

    Should You Rotate Your Cover Crops? 4 Issues to Consider

    By Laura Barrera

    Published Jun 15, 2018

    By adding cover crops to the mix, you’re diversifying your rotation even more. But have you thought about rotating your cover crops? Should you be using the same cover crop species back to back, year after year?Dave Robison, who runs the blog PlantCoverCrops. 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...

    Early Cover Crop Benefits: What Can You Expect in the First Year?

    By Laura Barrera

    Published May 17, 2018

    In 1995, Pennsylvania farmer Steve Groff was speaking at an event when he asked the audience the question: Do cover crops pay off?His thinking at the time was that he had been no-tilling since 1982, and maybe if he no-tilled long enough, he wouldn’t need them. Ray Weil, a soil ecologist with the University of Maryland, happened to hear his question and approached Groff about doing a cover crop study on his farm... That was the year he had a drought, and the corn that was grown on previously cover-cropped ground out-yielded the corn on non-cover cropped ground by 28 bushels per acre... “Ever since that I’m totally committed to cover crops. ”Talk to most farmers who have been using cover crops and you may get a similar story...

    Can You Use Legume Cover Crops in Your Peanut Rotation?

    By Laura Barrera

    Published Aug 31, 2018

    It’s common knowledge among peanut farmers that the farther out you space your peanut crops in your rotation, the better off the peanuts will be... Scott Tubbs of the University of Georgia in 2015, that looked at peanut yield when grown in multiple rotation lengths, from continuous peanut to every 4 years... “There’s been research that has shown that if you grow continuous peanuts, we start seeing a lot of disease issues that are going to reduce the yield,” says Dr. Kip Balkcom, Research Agronomist for the USDA in Auburn, Ala. “Primarily, diseases like white mold tend to be more prevalent when you have continuous peanuts...

    When is it Too Late to Seed Cover Crops?

    By Laura Barrera

    Published Jan 29, 2019

    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... It leads to the question: Is it ever too late to seed cover crops?The short answer: It depends. “Each situation is going to depend on the variables and conditions of that particular farmer,” says Wayne Ebersole. 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. But the first factor to consider is when you want to benefit from that cover crop...
