    By Gregory Heilers

    Published Jun 4, 2018

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.

    Root Exudates 101: What They Do and Why They Matter

    By Laura Barrera

    Published Mar 23

    When you picture what’s happening below ground in your fields, you probably imagine a web of roots branching out to provide your crops support, nutrients and water. But root growth isn’t the only thing happening beneath the surface. Roots are also secreting chemical compounds, known as root exudates, which play an important role in both crop production and soil health. Released primarily from the root hairs and cells immediately behind the penetrating root tip, says an Agronomy for Sustainable Development article, root exudates attract and sustain a variety of microorganisms, like arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi and nitrogen-cycling bacteria, in the rhizosphere, which is the zone of soil directly surrounding the roots. When explaining exudates, Paul Hallett uses a quote from the English agriculturist Jethro Tull’s book, Horse-Hoeing Husbandry: “Roots are but guts inverted…that spew out what is superfluous...

    By Tyler Davis

    Updated May 13

    Many taxpayers are surprised to find out that the IRS taxes hobby income. We all have hobbies. Yours might be painting, making unique juices, or growing flowers. Hobbies are an activity, or “side hustle” that is done mostly for pleasure rather than to profit...

    Nuisance Lawsuits are Taking a Bite Out of Big Pork

    By Maria Dampman

    Published Aug 17, 2018

    In 1611, William Aldred took his neighbor to court. Thomas Benton was being sued for “erecting a hogstye so near the house of the plaintiff that the air thereof was corrupted. ” In common language, the pigs stank, making it impossible for Aldred to enjoy his home which, in his words, had become “unbearable to live in. ” The courts sided with Aldred, saying the odor was “depriving him of his dignity” and therefore, a violation of his rights. In a dispute as old as time pig farmers and neighboring landowners have never seen nose-to-nose...

    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...

    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.

    -USDA Hogs and Pigs report this afternoon
    -USDA reports HRW sales to Iraq, SRW to Egypt

    * A wire service poll of Brazilian ag industry participants revealed average expectations of the Brazilian soybean crop at 114.2 MMT vs CONAB’s last estimate of 113.5 MMT and USDA’s 116.5 MMT.

    * As US/China trade talks resumed in Beijing today, wire services are reporting a US trade official said China made unprecedented proposals on several factors including forced technology transfer as they continue to work to strike a deal.
