    4 Steps to Building Soil Organic Matter in the South

    As we learn more about what goes on in the world beneath our feet, increased attention has been placed on soil organic matter... In addition to organic matter increasing, Kloot discovered that nutrient levels and pH on the five farmers’ soils were quite stable — remaining practically unchanged, despite being in full production and not having any commercial fertilizer applied, except for nitrogen to grass crops, which Kloot says was typically applied at lower rates... Kloot says that while species like grass crops tend to bring more carbon into the soil because they have more biomass, continuously growing grasses without any additional diversity will cause productivity in the soil to go down...

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

    Should You Rotate Your Cover Crops? 4 Issues to Consider

    By Laura Barrera

    Published Jun 15, 2018

    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. “If we have a few escapes of annual ryegrass and a few years later we’re planting wheat in that field, we’re not really thinking annual ryegrass is a problem because we go in and spray everything out,” Robison says. “And the next year we plant wheat and we don’t spray any grass killer, then we possibly end up with annual ryegrass in the wheat or malting barley or some other high-value crop. ”Photo from University of Georgia Ag Extension shows both wheat and ryegrass seedlings emerging in the same field. The ryegrass was found around edges and obstructions in the field...
