    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. Although there are many different types of mycorrhizae, the only one crop farmers need to be concerned about is arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF), as 65% of plant species associate with it... He also likes to see flax and sunflowers in the mix, noting they both have excellent mycorrhizal hosting capabilities...

    7 Common Plant Diseases: How to Identify & Treat Them

    By Darren Chan

    Published Apr 21, 2020 

    For home gardeners, nothing is more frustrating than seeing their work destroyed by pests and diseases. The disease occurs when environmental conditions are suitable for the growth of pathogens on susceptible hosts. Some pathogens attack a variety of plants, while others attack only specific plants. In addition, some pathogens can attack all parts of the plant, while others attack only selected tissues... It often harms the flowers and trees of the leaves, stems and flower stalks and other parts, the surface of a layer of white powder, serious disease when the leaf wilt...

    Hebe or Veronica bush - Everything about this plant

    By Robert Lopez

    Published Oct 31, 2020 

    Hebe or veronica is a shrub with an extraordinary inflorescence, which due to its ease of care is an excellent candidate for low-maintenance gardens. Its ornamental appeal lies not only in its curious flowers, but also in its leaves, which can be green or variegated. The origin of this precious shrub is New Zealand, it is evergreen and can reach 50 cm in height and the same width dimension. It is a good plant to be used as a path delimiter, to form small fences or to have in a pot decorating the balcony or patio... ;)The Hebes flowers are a great attraction for pollinating animals such as bees or butterflies...

    How do Iron and Amino Acids Correlate in Plants?

    By Ryan Reynolds

    Published Oct 16, 2020 

    Opulent Blends has possibly the best iron uptake for iron fertilizer, which is Green Optimizer and here's how. A major limiting factor on crop yields is imbalanced nutrient availability, especially iron. There are many essential elements that plants use, and it is important for each of those elements to be balanced. An element that is short in supply will determine the effectiveness of all the elements as a whole and in result lead to unbalanced nutrients within the plant negatively affecting the overall health and growth of the plant... From that point, they may be absorbed and used by the leaf cells or travel on to the phloem (the vascular system used by plants for transportation), typically to new leaves, flowers, and other parts of the plants...

    How to Cultivate Cotton Organically

    By Vijayalaxmi Kinhal

    Updated Oct 24, 2020 

    Though most of the organic cotton in the world comes from Asia, Texas in the USA is also a major producer. Although specific growing methods may vary based on region and farm size, there are general principles that can be applied throughout the world when it comes to growing organic cottonEconomicsThere are many reasons to grow cotton organically. The market share of organic cotton has grown from 1% in 2008 to 21% in 2018. Half of this is grown in India, with China (17%), Kyrgyzstan (7%), and Turkey (7%) being the next major producers... Usually, 30% of flowers result in bolls, but drought, pest, waterlogging, or low temperatures can bring this figure down to 10%...

    Study reveals best use of wildflowers to benefit crops on farms

    For the first time, a Cornell University study of strawberry crops on New York farms tested this theory and found that wildflower strips on farms added pollinators when the farm lay within a "Goldilocks zone," where 25 to 55 percent of the surrounding area contained natural lands. Outside this zone, flower plantings also drew more strawberry pests, while having no effect on wasps that kill those pests.

    Photo: This is a bumblebee foraging on a cup plant. Cup plants attracted the most bees to wildflower strips, according to a survey done by Cornell researchers. (credit: Heather Grab)
