    How the small Farmer can Acquire more Farms using Leverage.

    By Robert Morgan

    Published 1 years, 4 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...

    How Yield Champions Use Cover Crops for Growing Higher Bushels

    By Laura Barrera

    Published 1 years, 4 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...

    Why Hemp Isn’t Going to Save the US Farmer (But How It Could)

    By The Crossover

    Published 1 month ago

    In late 2018, a new farm bill was passed that legalized the production of hemp as an agricultural commodity while also removing it from the list of “controlled substances”. The Gold Rush of the modern farming era was on. The farming industry was buzzing with new information on how to grow and market this miracle plant. Hemp farming was going to not only save the modern row crop farmer but also make him wealthy in the process... This has happened in other commodities before, even corn and soybeans...

    What Farmers Need to Know About Mycorrhizae

    By Laura Barrera

    Published 11 months ago

    If someone asked you, “How do plants take up the water and nutrients they need?” you’d probably tell them through the roots. 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... ”Almost all legumes, including peas, lentils, vetch, cowpeas, chickpeas and mung beans, are good for mycorrhizal fungi growth, he says... This year he put a lot on his corn and soybean acres and is waiting to see if they made any difference...

    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.
