    This Week In Agriculture:A Mixed Bag of Information from the Week that Was: June 22, 2018· Another volatile week as traders work to decipher what a continued trade war could mean for commodities going forward and the old adage “rain makes grain” is put to the test. When the closing bell rang for the week we saw December corn down nearly 5 cents, December wheat down 12 and November soybeans down 14. · The week started relatively weak as heat that had built throughout the bulk of the Corn Belt over the weekend was expected to give way to cooler temperatures coupled with extreme moisture in areas of the Belt that had seen beneficial rainfall the week before. With corn ratings nationally sitting at 78% good to excellent—a near record high and bean ratings at 73% the common idea was rain would continue to benefit production... Wheat, cotton and sorghum acreage is expected to come in relatively close to March estimates as well...

    How Yield Champions Use Cover Crops for Growing Higher Bushels

    By Laura Barrera

    Published 8 months ago

    There are many factors that can influence corn yield. In fact, Fred Below, a plant physiologist at the University of Illinois, identified seven of them, which he dubbed the “Seven Wonders of the Corn Yield World... While Russell Hedrick didn’t intend for his yield-winning corn to follow corn — most of his farm is in a corn-soybean rotation, occasionally with some small grains — it proved just how beneficial cover crops can be in a mono-cropping situation. After the previous corn was harvested, the owner of JRH Grains LLC drilled a 7-way blend of cereal rye, triticale, oats, crimson clover, Austrian winter peas, hairy vetch and Dwarf essex rape. His intention with the small grains was to sequester carbon, build soil organic matter, suppress weeds and improve the soil’s water retention as well as water infiltration rates, while the legumes were used for balancing the carbon-to-nitrogen ratio...

    Should You Rotate Your Cover Crops? 4 Issues to Consider

    By Laura Barrera

    Published 7 months ago

    Their work was focused on extending the grazing season by planting oats, rye and turnips after a cereal grain... “The challenge is if we do not have a healthy cereal grain crop that we’re harvesting — let’s say we see a lot of ergot or rust or we have other issues in our cereal grain — and then we harvest that, we end up replanting that disease back into the field again... “Whether the farmer is growing his own cereal grains or whether they’re purchasing grains from another farmer, they really need to consider the cost that they may be incurring by adding in additional disease pressure to the farm,” he says... This can be an issue for cereal grain farmers using annual ryegrass as a cover crop, where having a few escapes is not unheard of... A corn-soybean rotation is easy, Robison says, but if you have cereal grains or specialty crops in there, you need to be exceptionally careful...

    On the Offensive with Cover Crops

    By Pat Rogers

    Published 1 years, 3 days ago

    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... For example, brassicas can suppress nematodes, legumes produce nitrogen and small grains are good mycorrhizal hosts... ● Limit your costs by saving seed to re-blend, especially small grains, but don’t skimp on seeding rate. The best case scenario is to balance out your blend amongst each species but if costs are prohibitive it’s better to increase the rate of small grains than to just use a lower overall rate...

    What Farmers Need to Know About Mycorrhizae

    By Laura Barrera

    Published 3 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. 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... Grasses like sorghums, millets, rye, triticale, barleys — and oats in particular — are also excellent colonizers...

    4 Steps to Building Soil Organic Matter in the South

    By Laura Barrera

    Published 6 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. While it only makes up a small percentage of most soils, the Sustainable Agriculture Research & Education (SARE) says it’s the “very foundation for healthy and productive soils” — and the more organic matter there is, the better the results. 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... He knows one farmer who decided to grow a mix of sorghum sudangrass, sunn hemp, daikon radish, sunflower and cowpeas right after his corn crop, before planting winter wheat...

    This Week in AgricultureA Mixed Bag of Information from the Week that Was: January 18, 2019· With the government shutdown looking to continue on indefinitely traders are adjusting to life with minimal information flowing, focusing more on cash grain values, freight movement, export inspections and the rumor mill to generate direction. · Export inspections this week came in above the high side of expectations, and much higher than levels seen throughout the holidays, but below levels needed to meet current USDA estimates. CIF (export bids) values have shown some strength this week for corn and wheat likely indicating buying interest increased, especially with the recent move lower in futures. Soybean values have remained relatively steady, though traders are aware bids have returned to the Pacific Northwest after most buyers had nothing posted throughout harvest. · Chinese import information for the month of December was released early this week as well, and was quite disappointing with soybean imports coming in at the lowest level seen in 7 years...

    Can You Use Legume Cover Crops in Your Peanut Rotation?

    By Laura Barrera

    Published 5 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. Scott Tubbs of the University of Georgia in 2015, that looked at peanut yield when grown in multiple rotation lengths, from continuous peanut to every 4 years... The SARE publication,“Managing Cover Crops Profitably,” references a paper by the University of Georgia that also says that using small grain cover crops in conservation tillage systems have been shown to reduce peanut yield losses from Tomato Spotted Wilt Virus (TSWV) — and the greater the residue left from the cover, the lower the incidence of TSWV...
