    Will Changes in Trade and Low Commodity Prices Bring 1980 2.0?

    By Kayla Hedrick

    Crop Acreage Shifts, Production SoarsIn 1980, corn was king, followed by wheat, soybeans and cotton... Today, corn and soybean acres are neck and neck, followed by wheat and cotton. Chinese tariffs have been the biggest pain point for soybeans, but not impacted corn as significantly, at least not directly. Unfortunately for corn and soybean farmers, its not just the exports of their own commodities they should be concerned about today... Soybean acres have seen the greatest growth, jumping 28 percent over the roughly four decades to nearly 90 million acres...

    Farmers Push for Trade, Not Aid

    By Kayla Hedrick

    Published 6 months ago

    For example, a mid-sized, 1,000-acre soybean farmer may receive a $10,000 direct payment from the USDA, but – depending on how he or she marketed their grain – they could have already lost $100,000... Trade negotiations – especially those with China and Mexico – have caused the price of soybeans to drop nearly $2... 00 may not seem like much, soybeans were already 50 percent lower than they were just four years ago – causing pain points prior to the tariffs and forcing farmers to operate with miniscule – and quickly disappearing – margins... However, the last time aid was offered at this level was in 1998 when the Clinton administration funded help for low hog, corn and soybean prices... 1 soybean importer is not just a happy coincidence...

    How the small Farmer can Acquire more Farms using Leverage.

    By Robert Morgan

    Published 7 months ago

    Going Private and Leveraged BuyoutGoing private refers to the transformation of a public corporation into a privately held firm. A leveraged buyout (LBO), financed largely by borrowing, is the acquisition of the stock or assets of a public company by a small group of investors. The buying group may be sponsored by buyout specialists or by investment bankers. A variant of the LBO going-private transaction is the management buyout (MBO) in which a segment of the company is sold to its managers. Since 1981, unit MBOs have represented more than 10 percent of total divestitures...

I had taken in more new information in a three-day period than I had in the previous five years combined... You’ll be able to interact with neighbors to see what they think are the best soybean varieties for your county and you’ll also be able to read national marketing experts’ views on how Chinese tariffs will affect those same soybeans...

    How Yield Champions Use Cover Crops for Growing Higher Bushels

    By Laura Barrera

    Published 8 months ago

    While Russell Hedrick didn’t intend for his yield-winning corn to follow corn — most of his farm is in a corn-soybean rotation, occasionally with some small grains — it proved just how beneficial cover crops can be in a mono-cropping situation... More seeds a blend of tillage radishes and forage turnips between his corn and soybeans, while a mix of oats, Austrian winter peas and clover follows soybeans before corn... While the covers benefitted his yield-winning corn, they’ve also had a big impact on his soybean yields. More recalls two years ago he ran out of cover crops on a field going to soybeans, so half of it was left bare. The soybeans that followed the cover crops yielded 30 bushels higher than the soybeans seeded to bare ground...

    Should You Rotate Your Cover Crops? 4 Issues to Consider

    By Laura Barrera

    Published 7 months ago

    You probably know that having a crop rotation is a good thing... “But then also the fact that if we would have to come back to soybeans, there’s some risk of having additional white mold issues and some other pathogens that could create some other issues... He adds that if the only cash crops you grow are corn and soybeans, there’s not a lot of risk with escapes... A corn-soybean rotation is easy, Robison says, but if you have cereal grains or specialty crops in there, you need to be exceptionally careful. “Even the corn and bean guys need to be at least aware that they may choose not to use brassicas every single year, just because they don’t want to take any risk...

    Organic Compost and Wastewater on the initial growth of oilseed plants

    Authors: Júlia S. Pereira, Jean P. Guimarães, Riuzuani M. B. P. Lopes, Maria S. S. de Farias, Vera L. A. de Lima, Carlos A. V. de Azevedo

    The study was conducted in two experiments in greenhouse of the CTRN/UFCG, aiming to evaluate the use of organic compost from household garbage and irrigation with treated domestic wastewater on the growth of castor bean 'BRS-188/Paraguaçu' and sunflower 'Embrapa 122-V2000'. Both experiments were conducted a randomized block design in 6 x 2 factorial scheme, with three replicates, which corresponded to six doses of organic compost (0, 1.2, 2.0, 2.8, 3.6 and 4.4 kg pot-1, equivalent to 0, 60, 100, 140, 180 and 220 kg N ha-1) and two types of water (freshwater and wastewater). It was found that the organic compost doses significantly influenced the growth of sunflower and castor bean in all evaluations, except for stem diameter. The maximum plant heights were 91.7 cm for castor bean and 85.2 cm for sunflower at the doses of 180 and 220 kg N ha-1, respectively. The highest values of number of leaves ??were obtained for the N dose of 220 kg ha-1 in both crops. The influence of wastewater on growth variables was only observed in the final evaluations, for both sunflower and castor bean.
