    When is it Too Late to Seed Cover Crops?

    By Laura Barrera

    Published Jan 29, 2019 

    If you’re a farmer, at some point you’ll likely experience a late harvest, whether it’s due to Mother Nature or an equipment problem. 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. Depending on how late it gets, you may wonder whether it’s even worth seeding them at all... You may want to avoid any species that is not suitable for surviving cold weather, Ebersole says, such as radishes and some specific clover and oat varieties, although black oats have been known to overwinter south of I-70 and as far north as Pennsylvania... If you’re planning on planting corn, you may want to avoid cereal rye and stick with either triticale or a legume like crimson clover or hairy vetch...

    Weed Control in Organic Soybean Farms

    By Vijayalaxmi Kinhal

    Updated Oct 24, 2020 

    Experts all agree that there is no silver bullet to control weeds in the organic cultivation of soybeans. Farmers need to use a combination of measures to keep weeds at bay in the short and long term. Soybean vs WeedsWeed control is the main problem in organic agriculture including in soybeans. It is more difficult to control weeds in soybeans because of their compact foliage, which takes longer than grain crops to produce an interlocking canopy that shades inter-row area... In the USA, rye, cowpea, triticale, or clover are recommended...

    Can You Use Legume Cover Crops in Your Peanut Rotation?

    By Laura Barrera

    Published Aug 31, 2018 

    But what about using a legume cover crop? Can you include a legume like crimson clover in a cover crop mix that will be seeded on a field that includes peanuts in the rotation?The answer is a little more complicated than just yes or no... The seven cover crops were:Common vetch (legume)Hairy vetch (legume)White clover (legume)Red clover (legume)Triticale (grass)Wheat (grass)Rye (grass)While there were no significant differences between the two years in the uninfested field, on the infested field, grasses significantly reduced nematode populations and had significantly higher yields than the legume cover crops. While the clovers followed the grasses in reducing nematode populations, the researchers point out they also had a negative impact on peanut yields... Plant a cover crop of rye, crimson clover, cahaba vetch or subterranean clover... Year 2Fall: Replant cereal rye or cahaba vetch, allow crimson or subclover hard seed to germinate...

    How to Time Cover Crop Termination and Get an Effective Burndown

    By Laura Barrera

    Published Jul 1, 2019 

    With May 2018 to April 2019 being the wettest 12-month period on record, according to NOAA, many farmers across the nation were forced to delay planting. In fact, for the first time on record, less than half of corn was planted by May 19, says the USDA. Even by June 2, “both corn and soybean planting were proceeding at a record slow pace. ”For those with cover crops, these wet conditions likely affected their termination plans, causing some to debate whether they should terminate before or after planting... For example, Penn State researchers discovered that crimson clover wasn’t easy to plant into because of its mature, thick roots...

    Prevented Planting? Cover Crops Offer a Silver Lining

    By Laura Barrera

    Published Jul 18, 2019 

    Wet conditions across the country forced many farmers to forgo their plans for the season and take prevented planting payments instead. The USDA says that as of July 8, 2019, its paid roughly $184 million in claims for prevented planting because of floods and excess moisture. University of Illinois ag economist Gary Schnitkey estimates payouts could reach a record-setting $3... She notes that this cover crop won’t last, so she recommends coming back in September to plant crimson clover and oats... “Whether those are summer broadleaves like cowpeas and buckwheat, or late fall broadleaves, which would be crimson clover, radish and turnips...

    From Industrial Pesticides to Integrated Pest Management: A New Trend in Vineyard Practices

    By Thomas Grandperrin

    Updated Dec 14, 2020 

    This article was initially published on The Wine Industry Advisor as part of a series on biological control and Integrated Pest Management written by UAV-IQ Precision Agriculture. Grape growers are facing increased threats from invasive insect pests. The issue with those non-native species is that there are often no naturally occurring enemies capable of controlling them and new Integrated Pest Management (IPM) protocols might take years to be developed, forcing growers to rely on broad-spectrum insecticides until more ecologically friendly alternatives are available. A notable example of an invasive pest affecting California vineyards is the vine mealybug, which is a major pest of grape vines not only because of the damage they can cause to the fruit but also for the viruses they transmit, such as the grape leafroll-associated virus... He studied the use of barley, vetch, and clovers with Michael Costello, and more recently the use of phacelia, buckwheat and sweet alyssum with Houston Wilson...

    Weed Suppression of FIXatioN Balansa Clover - Used correctly, cover crops can decrease certain input costs

    September Cover Crop Corner: Economic Series Part One: Reducing Inputs

    By Feed the Soil, Feed the World

    Published 14 minutes ago 

    In part one of this two-part series on the economics of cover crops, we explore how they can help reduce input costs... In soils with fertility issues, legumes like crimson clover or hairy vetch can do well and help restore the soil... In a trial conducted at the Ewing Demonstration Center (EDC) in Illinois, decomposing FIXatioN Balansa clover added 269 pounds of nitrogen per acre over a period of six and a half months. In return, FIXatioN Balansa clover improved the soil nitrogen contribution and soil ammonium ppm by 40 percent and 80 percent in just four weeks after corn emergence (WAE)... Data from the EDC trial shows FIXatioN Balansa clover fixed 50 pounds of nitrogen per acre at 4 WAE...

    A multi-species blend of wheat, vetch, winter peas and clover that was planted in October.

    On the Offensive with Cover Crops

    By Pat Rogers

    Published Jan 24, 2018 

    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. I have learned a lot of lessons from this experience but one stands out above the rest. Being a good steward of the environment and aiming to produce high yields don’t have to be mutually exclusive. 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...
