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

    By Gregory Heilers

    Published Jun 4, 2018

    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... When his grandfather purchased their farm in the 1950s, there were 20 staff and 40 horses moving stock, checking water sources, maintaining infrastructure, and more...

    Farmer Focus - Clive Bailye - Going Trailed

    By Direct Driller Magazine

    Published Mar 25, 2019

    18 years ago, we bought our first self-propelled sprayer and it revolutionized access to land, it was light and well balanced and made fertilizer and crop protection applications easy. Our timeliness and the ruts we used to leave in tramlines all but disappeared. Back then If you had told me I would ever consider running a trailed sprayer on my farm again I would have thought you were mad. I was once told the difference between a good farmer and a bad one was “a week” so I have always placed ability to travel and make timely application of inputs highly on my list of farming priorities... Although maybe a necessity in farming systems that depend greatly on very heavy high horse power tractors my view is that it’s surely better to just not use potentially damaging machines when you have viable lighter, lower ground pressure alternatives usually employed in zerotill systems...

    By Direct Driller Magazine

    Published Jan 19, 2019

    FARM WALKS WITH THE SOIL FARMERS OF THE YEAR 2018The winners of the FCCT Soil Farmer of the Year competition opened their gates over four days and provided a veritable masterclass in managing soils. Spanning a range of soil types, management systems and enterprises, attending farmers gained insights into their award winning management and a better understanding as to why these farms had been picked as the top three in this year’s competition. The Soil Farmer of the Year Competition, now in its third year, is run by the Farm Carbon Cutting Toolkit and Innovation for Agriculture. The competition aims to find farmers and growers who are engaged with, and passionate about managing their soils in a way which supports productive agriculture, reduces greenhouse gas emissions and builds soil health, organic matter and ultimately, carbon... The compost includes horse manure, woodchip and garden waste, as well as gypsum (providing calcium and sulphur in a biological form) to counteract his high Magnesium levels, and is made to a strict method...

    I have a dirty mind because

    By Monica Pape

    Published Mar 12, 2018

    I Think Like an AgronomistThe idea of thinking like an agronomist has come up in several conversations lately. I was at a conference recently and asked how I would have answered a question asked by a farmer. I turned to the sale rep and said that I wouldn't have answered it. I would have asked more questions... I remember him pulling into the driveway in his old pickup truck, hopping out, standing there with his pipe hanging out of his mouth saying “what’ ya want me to do?”He never yelled when I accidentally let my dad’s best hunting beagle out, he never groused when I asked him to clean horse stalls, and he never scolded me when I cussed after a steer stepped on my foot...

    Illustration Photo: Laser leveling is a process of smoothing the land surface (± 2 cm) from its average elevation using laser-equipped tractor-pulled scrapers. This practice uses large horsepower tractors and soil movers that are equipped with global positioning systems (GPS) and/or laser-guided instrumentation so that the soil can be moved either by cutting or filling to create the desired slope/level. This technique is well known for achieving higher levels of accuracy in land leveling and offers great potential for water savings and higher crop yields.
