  • Corn Fungicides 101: Tips for Protecting Your Crop and Your Bottom Line from Foliar Disease

    By Laura Barrera

    Published Jul 7, 2020 

    Every year foliar diseases take a hit to corn yields across the U... One way to protect corn bushels from these diseases is with corn fungicides. But in economic times when margins are tight, farmers must consider how foliar fungicide applications will impact their bottom line. Deciding whether to use corn fungicides for foliar disease depends on several factors that can vary year to year, including the disease present and its severity, hybrid resistance, weather and field conditions. How Damaging Are Corn Foliar Diseases?According to the Crop Protection Network (CPN), disease caused more than 10% of total estimated bushels lost in four of the five most recent data years (2014 through 2018), with foliar disease being the top culprit for yield loss...

    Comparison between pivot and drip irrigation in corn cultivation

    By Miriam Pitzalis

    Updated Aug 19, 2020 

    The main problem concerning corn cultivation is water stress: the most critical phases that suffer from water shortages, which can lead to significant production losses, are from the emission of the plume to flowering and the ripening stage... For this reason, it becomes essential to select an efficient and economical irrigation system... What are the differences between the two systems?Among the relevant differences to consider is the investment cost, adaptability to the rotation, weather conditions, irrigation availability and the efficiency of any fertigation. Pivot vs Drip irrigation: economic comparisonsIn a study conducted by the University of Turin, the costs and efficiency of the two systems were analyzed. Researchers considered the same water supply and an average life of 10 years for the surface drip irrigation and 20 years for the pivot...

    Cost Segregation Studies in the Agriculture Industry

    By Tyler Davis

    Updated Oct 29, 2020 

    However, a cost segregation study can accelerate the amount of depreciation taken during the early years of a property investment. What is a Cost Segregation Study?A cost segregation study is an analysis of a building, structure, or asset to allocate the purchase price to different categories of useful life for tax depreciation purposes... The general rule for commercial buildings is that they are depreciated over 39 years. Rather than allocating the purchase price to just the land & the building, the business performs a cost segregation study & realizes they can allocate the purchase price to things such as windows, lighting, HVAC, flooring, roof, landscaping, etc. These categories can have a shorter recovery life for tax purposes than the structure of the building...

    My favorite spring planting? Bacon seeds!

    Controlling input costs - one of the best returns on investment

    By John Moody

    Published May 2, 2018 

    The importance of controlling your costs One of my favorite stories involves a lady and a farmer... Yet, she continued to come out to the farm... Each year we should spend some time looking at our various costs and seeing where we can do better... Fertility A vegetable grower friend of mine in the Carolinas uses a large amount of compost each year in his operation... While searching for wood chips, one of his kids came across $10 a yard compost at 20 miles away! It was equal or better quality to what he had already been getting to boot, an important consideration...

    Commercial Truck Loans & Financing Rates

    By Future Loans

    Published Nov 7, 2020 

    Commercial Truck Loans & Financing RatesWhether you need to purchase a single truck or an entire fleet, you will need to find the right commercial truck finance options to fulfill your specific needs. Most business owners will not pay for these vehicles with cash out of pocket, so they will need to apply for loans for commercial trucks. Financing a commercial truck is similar to applying for a regular truck loan in many cases, but there are some key differences that you should be aware of before you contact finance companies to get started with an application. Understanding Different Commercial Truck Finance OptionsIt is important to note that not all commercial truck finance companies offer the same types of loans and that there are different types of loan programs available for different types of work vehicles... In addition, the amount of the down payment and the sales price may also impact commercial truck loan rates and terms...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Hello all. I am cultivating Relationships and Resources through a group called The Corn Belt Cadence. There are so many amazing resources, this app being one of them, and connections out there but they are not always the easiest to find. I'd like to bring them all to one place and am looking to connect with others that could bring value to the agriculture industry to help others grow and develop personally and professionally. If you'd like to learn more please reach out.
