    What Farmers Need to Know About Mycorrhizae

    By Laura Barrera

    Published Nov 2, 2018 

    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... The reason Berns recommends growing so many different species is because they’ll provide a diversity of root exudates... Some weeds, such as lambsquarters and pigweed, are also non-mycorrhizal — another reason why preventing and controlling weed infestations like palmer amaranth is so important...

    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... 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 help row crops access additional nutrients in the soil profile through four different biological processes: 1) The breakdown of carbon from decaying cover crop residue, 2) Roots from the cover crops produce “exudate acids” which convert minerals in the soil into plant available nutrients 3) The cover crops act as a host plant for arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi, which are microbes that have a direct effect on plant health and nutrient storage capacity of the soil within the root zone of the plant and 4) By producing additional Nitrogen with leguminous cover crops...

    Precision Farming Solutions for Weeds in Soybean Farms

    By Vijayalaxmi Kinhal

    Updated Sep 10, 2020 

    The weed control measures used in soybean production need to be overhauled. The development of resistance in weeds has made current technology and management increasingly expensive and comes accompanied with heavy yield losses. Precision management solutions can reduce chemical use in several ways. Current Weed Management in SoybeansSoybean is important for the global economy as it is used as a source for oil and protein (for people and livestock) and as biodiesel. Soybean is the crop with the largest monoculture in the world and with 90% of it grown in Argentina, Brazil, the United States, China, and India...

    Cover Crop Corner: Part 2 Cover Crop Economics: Long-term gains through holistic improvements

    By Feed the Soil, Feed the World

    Published Oct 13 

    In part two of this two-part series on the economics of cover crops, we explore how a holistic approach to taking care of resources comes with long-term gains. By GO SEEDThere are no “quick fixes” when it comes to the health of soils, the benefits take more than overnight to show up. While it takes time and deliberate care to learn how to enhance resources holistically within your own system, the general principles are relatively simple and can be significant cost savings. “Soil is the natural capital of the land,” explains Dr Shannon Cappellazzi, GO Seed Director of Research. “By making the investment in soil health, not only are you making an impact on all of the downstream ecosystem services that are related to soil functions, you are also regenerating the land for continued agricultural production...

    Root Exudates 101: What They Do and Why They Matter

    By Laura Barrera

    Published Mar 23, 2020 

    Roots are also secreting chemical compounds, known as root exudates, which play an important role in both crop production and soil health. Released primarily from the root hairs and cells immediately behind the penetrating root tip, says an Agronomy for Sustainable Development article, root exudates attract and sustain a variety of microorganisms, like arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi and nitrogen-cycling bacteria, in the rhizosphere, which is the zone of soil directly surrounding the roots. When explaining exudates, Paul Hallett uses a quote from the English agriculturist Jethro Tull’s book, Horse-Hoeing Husbandry: “Roots are but guts inverted…that spew out what is superfluous... ”In addition to benefiting the plant itself, root exudates can both affect the soil and be affected by it... Here’s what you should know about root exudates...

  • Soil and Crop Management Strategies to Ensure Higher Crop Productivity within Sustainable Environments

    Authors: Farooq Shah and Wei Wu

    Journal Title: Sustainability

    ISSN: 2071-1050 (Online)

    Publisher: MDPI AG

    The rising population and reduction in the amount of land and some other resources have created tremendous pressure on current agricultural producers to meet the increasing food demands. To cope with this challenge, certain key inputs, such as fertilizers and other chemicals, are overused, which are worsening the surroundings. This intensive agricultural production without adherence to ecological sustainability has led to declining soil health, land degradation, and severe environmental problems. So, future efforts to feed the growing population should aim for greater agricultural production within sustainable environments. In this regard, innovative steps are needed, as business-as-usual policies lack the potential to cope with these challenges. The concept of agricultural sustainability and various soil and crop management strategies (SCMS) that have been designed to optimize crop yield under sustainable environmental conditions are discussed, including nutrient management, site specific nutrient management (SSNM), integrated nutrient management (INM), integrated soil fertility management (ISFM), integrated soil-crop system management (ISSM), ridge-furrow mulching systems (RFMS), sustainable water management (SWM), conservation agriculture (CA), sustainable land management (SLM), vertical/sky farming, and integrated crop management, and breeding strategies as well as other approaches combined with technological and behavioural changes. The present review suggests that a sustainable production system can be developed by combining the multifaceted efforts under SCMS practices with short- and long-term preventive measures. Reducing chemicals’ usage, such as that of fertilizers and pesticides, plus improvements in the crop input use efficiency could minimize greenhouse gases emissions while protecting the environment. Sustainable agriculture holds promise for humankind and the planet Earth, and it can be successful if all developed and developing nations stand together to seek ‘our common future’ to produce more food while generating less environmental pressure.

    Minnesota can be a model for other states in the fight against invasives weeds. That's the message of a newly published article highlighting the successful work against Palmer amaranth in Minnesota. The article "Timeline of Palmer amaranth (Amaranthus palmeri) invasion and eradication in Minnesota" is being included in Weed Technology, a publication of the Weed Science Society of America.
    Palmer amaranth is listed as a noxious weed in Minnesota and was first discovered in the state in 2016.
    Left uncontrolled, a single female Palmer amaranth plant typically produces 100,000 to 500,000 seeds. It is resistant to multiple herbicides, can cause substantial yield losses, and greatly increase weed management costs in soybeans and corn.
    The article highlights the work of the Minnesota Department of Agriculture, University of Minnesota Extension, farmers, and other partners to identify the weed in fields, determine how it got to Minnesota, and implement strategies to eliminate infestations. To date, Palmer amaranth has been found in nine counties around the state; however, most of the sites have been successfully eradicated and the remaining are being closely monitored. Details of previous finds can be found on the MDA website.
    "Although our work with Palmer amaranth is far from completed, what we have accomplished has been critical to protecting Minnesota's ag economy from this serious threat," said Minnesota Agriculture Commissioner Thom Petersen. "We believe this collaborative effort to fighting invasives can work in many settings."
    "Education has played a key role in limiting the spread of this weed. We're committed to research and continuing our work with farmers and other partners across the state to protect crops from the threat of invasive species," said Extension Dean Bev Durgan, who is also a weed scientist.
    There are several keys to successful eradication of the invasive weed according to the article. First, a robust state noxious weed program, like the MDA's, is critical, and it needs appropriate funding and an independent advisory committee. Second, support is needed from the legislative and executive branches and commodity groups and farmers. Finally, continued success is more likely if surrounding states are collaborating on eradication.
    Along with its designation as a noxious weed, which requires all above and below ground parts of the Palmer amaranth plant destroyed and not moved, it is also listed as a prohibited weed seed in the state. This means seeds of the weed are not allowed in any seed offered for sale in Minnesota.
    Find photos and more information on Palmer amaranth here.
