    Nutrient Stratification Not a Problem in No-Till

    By Laura Barrera

    Published 1 years, 2 weeks ago

    A common concern growers may have when they move to a no-till system is nutrient stratification. Without tillage to mix fertilizer into the soil, no-tillers may wonder whether the nutrients applied to the soil surface are reaching the crop roots... “A lot of people who say there’s stratification in no-till have never measured the stratification of their tilled systems,” Jasa says, explaining that in his research plots he saw just as much stratification in the disk and chisel systems as he did in no-till... According to a paper written by University of Kentucky soil scientist John Grove, Ward and University of Maryland soil scientist Ray Weil, research conducted in Kentucky from 1980-81 looked at corn’s uptake of surface-applied potassium under moldboard plowed and no-tilled plots that were established in 1970... “The plant provides the food for the mycorrhizae, so the mycorrhizae can bring the nutrients to the plant...

    Can You Use Legume Cover Crops in Your Peanut Rotation?

    By Laura Barrera

    Published 12 months ago

    It’s common knowledge among peanut farmers that the farther out you space your peanut crops in your rotation, the better off the peanuts will be. Research backs this up. Jason Sarver, Extension Peanut Specialist for Mississippi State University, shared some trial work published by Dr... In the book, Phatak explains that they use the legume covers — crimson clover, cahaba vetch or subterranean clover — with the rye or along field borders, around ponds, near irrigation lines and in other non-cropped areas as close to fields as possible, to “provide the food needed to support beneficials at higher populations... In addition to no fungicide use, as mentioned above, Phatak has also found on his no-till research plots with covers and long rotations, that he didn’t have to use insecticides on his peanuts for 6 years, and it benefitted the soil overall...

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

    By Gregory Heilers

    Published 1 years, 3 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... Despite the fact that Joel disagreed with technology being the sole answer to on-farm challenges, he did point out its uses in marketing, complying with food supply chain regulations, and navigating “financial transactions and legalities, intricacies of liability insurance, health insurance, etc...

    What Farmers Need to Know About Mycorrhizae

    By Laura Barrera

    Published 10 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... But Berns has done some testing with these products on his farm, and has observed some differences between plots treated with inoculants vs. the control plots, particularly with aboveground growth and root mass... “But in the other plots, it would’ve been a waste of money for the farmers to use it...

    How To Value a Farm Agricultural Business

    By Robert Morgan

    Published 1 years, 2 months ago

    Business valuations are frequently performed when one company acquires another company, when a company is targeted for an acquisition, when a company’s capital structure is reorganized, when a company splits up, or when a company enters bankruptcy in liquidation or reorganization. The transactions may include entire or partial acquisitions, divestitures, liquidation, or recapitalization. Mergers will generally require both companies to be valued, while an acquisition may require only a single valuation... The reasoning implicit in The Agrilend model is the typical business valuation of an ongoing concern will provide a methodology for valuing its monetary efficiency by the market, asset, and income approach, however when dealing with established food manufacturing brands there is a different element to be considered to determine which constitutes its inherent customer base and brand positioning and therefore the multiple the target company can be purchased at or resold to a secondary private equity group, lender, or investor with an emphasis proportionally irrespective of discounted cash flows, capitalization rate, risk free rate, debt capital structure, capital asset pricing method, equity risk premium or company specific risk premium. In food manufacturing established brands with distribution in retail, it is still necessary to gauge the capital structure to determine the weighted average cost of capital to make a decision for a minority or majority purchase, however Agrilend places an emphasis on this intangible value with greater weight...

    Published 1 years, 1 month ago

    This Week In Agriculture:A Mixed Bag of Information from the Week that Was: July 13, 2018· At this point we seem to be seeing ‘if it isn’t broke, don’t fix it’ when it comes to trade as selling this market since Memorial Day has been a winner. Additional tariff announcements, ideas of further trade war escalation, forecasts for cooler temps and a USDA supply and demand report pressured the market across the board. For the week we saw corn down 20, wheat down 17 while November soys were 60 lower. · While the market started the weak lower on ideas that long term weather forecasts were indicating a pattern shift towards cooler, wetter conditions the Tuesday night announcement from the Trump administration of an additional $200 billion in tariffs on Chinese goods accelerated the market’s move lower... · Increased exports and food/seed/industrial usage seen in old crop corn was more than enough to offset reduced feed usage resulting in a cut to old crop ending stock estimates...

    Blockchain Technology: A Lifeline to Small-Scale Farmers

    By Gregory Heilers

    Published 1 years, 4 months ago

    Lest you think this is some fringe movement, or premature technology with no practical application, food industry giants such as Walmart, Nestlé, Dole, and Unilever are actively developing blockchain technology applications with IBM. The result? Walmart’s VP of food safety, Frank Yiannis, stated the company was “encouraged” by the potential for reducing the timeline of investigations into food-borne illness from weeks to seconds. By selling through the blockchain, farmers living in all types of economies, from developing to post-industrial, have the opportunity to increase their sales and profit margins, while enhancing food safety. If blockchain technology can help farmers and food producers from the developing world, as well as multi-national mega-corporations, why not streamline and accelerate the distribution of your products?What is the blockchain, and how are these applications disrupting agriculture?In a nutshell, blockchain technology is creating new economic opportunities through decentralization, while enhancing security... For example, Edwin highlighted the FoodCoin Ecosystem and its thriving 1000EcoFarms platform, which allow small farms to market directly to consumers...

    Starting from Scratch - How Beginning Farmers can Break Ground

    By Gregory Heilers

    Published 11 months ago

    Despite the fact that there is near-guaranteed job security, thanks to booming population growth, many beginning farmers face seemingly insurmountable obstacles to bringing a product to market. In this article, we’re going to cover how young farmers can start from the ground up, even if they don’t come from a family of farmers. Informing this subject is Jason Silverman, the Massachusetts Field Agent of Land For Good, and Joel Salatin, co-owner of Polyface Farm. Jason’s experience as a first generation farmer, and as an agent connecting farmers with resources, balances well with Joel’s, who took over the family farm, and has since mentored scores of intern cohorts. Starting Out with No Agricultural BackgroundOne of the dangers of starting out without either extensive experience or a strong support network is the potential for failure...

    Prevented Planting? Cover Crops Offer a Silver Lining

    By Laura Barrera

    Published 1 month ago

    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. 578 billion... Carlson says that studies have shown corn crops following bare or chemical-fallow fields experience phosphorus stress because the mycorrhizal fungi — the biology that makes phosphorus plant-available — severely decreases in population when it doesn’t have access to plant roots, its food source...

    Illustration Photo: Ears of orange maize lines following harvesting, on experimental plots at the Zambia Agriculture Research Institute (ZARI). This maize is orange because it contains high levels of beta-carotene, the same substance that give carrots their color. Beta-carotene is a provitamin, and is converted to vitamin A within the human body. CIMMYT works with ZARI as part of HarvestPlus, a CGIAR challenge program that uses biofortification to improve the nutritional value of staple foods. The HarvestPlus maize team uses conventional breeding to create maize hybrids and open-pollinated varieties rich in provitamin A.
