    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...

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

    By Laura Barrera

    Published 5 months ago

    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...

    Experts warn that growing continuous peanuts or other legumes close in rotation to the peanut crop can have detrimental effects on peanuts — namely soilborne diseases. This includes leguminous cover crops. Photo by Jack Dykinga, USDA Agricultural Research Service

    Should You Rotate Your Cover Crops? 4 Issues to Consider

    By Laura Barrera

    Published 4 months ago

    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...

    On the Offensive with Cover Crops

    By Pat Rogers

    Published 9 months ago

    In the past few years, we have made a concerted effort to increase the usage of cover crops and other conservation practices on our farm... In fact, I would argue that if intensively managed, conservation practices should significantly enhance yields. The cornerstone of any good crop production system involving conservation techniques is the establishment of cover crops. Cover crops have traditionally been thought of as a defensive measure... a way to protect crop yields during dry spells, a way to protect soil from erosion and a way to shade out competing weeds like palmer amaranth...

    Cover crops not only helped Russell Hedrick win the 2016 North Carolina Dryland and No-Till Dryland yield contest, they also saved him $123 per acre on fertilizer and herbicide costs.

    How Yield Champions Use Cover Crops for Growing Higher Bushels

    There are many factors that can influence corn yield. In fact, Fred Below, a plant physiologist at the University of Illinois, identified seven of them, which he dubbed the “Seven Wonders of the Corn Yield World. ”The seven wonders, ranked in order of most influence on yield, are:WeatherNitrogenHybridPrevious cropPlant populationTillageGrowth regulatorsWhile Below was referring to the cash crop rotation in the fourth wonder, some farmers are taking it one step further by seeding cover crops. The benefit of added crop diversity along with improvements to soil health is paying off, as some of these farmers are achieving the highest yields in the country.

    Recent College Grad? Why Now Is The Perfect Time To Pursue A Career In Farming

    By Cortney Farmer

    Published 6 months ago

    Recent decades have resulted in a steady and significant decline in the number of working farmers in our country, for a variety of reasons. Fickle consumers, climate changes, growing conditions, and a slew of other factors beyond our control can prompt the closure of existing farms as well as deter would-be growers from launching a farming career. The changing educational landscape in America has also contributed to the dwindling numbers of farmers found here. Previous generations of high school graduates focused primarily on mastering skilled trades; however, today's students often make obtaining a college degree their top professional priority. The upswing in white-collar careers has made an impact in several trade-centric industries, including agronomy, where the average age of farmers is currently 58 years old and rising...
