  • A New Era of Farm Employees: Farm Technicians vs. Farm Hands?

    By Gregory Heilers

    Published 1 years, 4 months ago

    Traditional agricultural skills that made civilization possible are still alive and in use today. At the same time, hundreds of farm technician job listings across the US, and the rise of precision agriculture and software, clearly evidence the need for technologically-savvy farm technicians in the 21st century agricultural industry. It’s no surprise that tech-friendly millennials interested in farming are encouraged by these developments, which may make farming less labor intensive than in generations past. Technology may even be the antidote to a number of ills plaguing modern agriculture, which have led to a drastic decrease in the number of farms across the United States... Compost still grows grass; chickens still like fly larvae...

    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.

    4 Steps to Building Soil Organic Matter in the South

    By Laura Barrera

    Published 1 years, 2 months ago

    As we learn more about what goes on in the world beneath our feet, increased attention has been placed on soil organic matter. And for good reason.

Consider the following findings from SARE and the NRCS:A study of soils in Michigan demonstrated potential crop-yield increases of about 12% for every 1% organic matter...

    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... Also, I’m concerned that hemp production is positioning itself as a “get rich quick” scheme for agriculture, and is attracting the same hucksters that flock to any new fad that they think they can exploit for a dollar... Plenty of new crops in the past have introduced some fly-by-night characters who were happy to sign a contract with you guaranteeing that they would purchase your crop... The new farm bill blew the doors off of that and opened the floodgates for the commoditization of hemp...
