    By Laura Barrera

    Published Aug 31, 2018

    20 Years Later: What Roundup Ready Crops Taught Us About Weed Management

    By Amanda Allworth

    Published Aug 21, 2018

    At the time of introduction, the technology was revolutionary for farmers, who found a highly effective and convenient chemistry to control a broad spectrum of weeds. Roundup Ready corn and soybeans quickly became the norm in fields across the United States, and as a result, application of glyphosate increased dramatically. The initial ease and success of Roundup Ready technology may have caused some farmers to become lax with their weed management programs, which was ultimately a factor in the introduction of glyphosate-resistant weeds. The agricultural community certainly made mistakes with the introduction and use of Roundup Ready technology. As new herbicide and seed products, including dicamba and 2,4-D tolerant crops, are introduced, we can take learnings from the Roundup Ready era and develop smarter weed management programs...

    Cover crops not only helped Russell Hedrick win the 2016 North Carolina Dryland and No-Till Dryland yield contest, they also saved him $123 per acre on fertilizer and herbicide costs.

    How Bacillus mucilaginosus can Prevent drought in the summer?

    By Darren Chan

    Published Jul 3, 2018

    When it comes to drought prevention, everyone thinks that they may need more watering. Now, there is a better way that we can use microbiological fertilizers like Bacillus mucilaginosus to prevent drought. The reason is that: Bacillus mucilaginosus is also called silicate bacteria. It has a strong potassium-dissolving ability, which is selected from the roots of crops and produced by industrial fermentation with a specific medium. Through its life activities in the soil, it increases the supply of plant nutrient elements, stimulates crop growth, inhibits harmful microbial activity, and has a strong effect of increasing production...
