    From Industrial Pesticides to Integrated Pest Management: A New Trend in Vineyard Practices

    By Thomas Grandperrin

    Updated Dec 14, 2020 

    This article was initially published on The Wine Industry Advisor as part of a series on biological control and Integrated Pest Management written by UAV-IQ Precision Agriculture... A notable example of an invasive pest affecting California vineyards is the vine mealybug, which is a major pest of grape vines not only because of the damage they can cause to the fruit but also for the viruses they transmit, such as the grape leafroll-associated virus. Vine mealybug infestation on a grape clusterTo discuss the latest knowledge on these topics, I reached out to Kent Daane, an entomologist and cooperative extension specialist at the University of California, Berkeley. Kent has led several research projects on vine mealybugs and the development of ecologically-based insect pest management systems in vineyards and other perennial crops, such as almonds, pistachios, grapes, and stone fruit... From IPM to biocontrol: the need to manage insecticides According to Kent, all vineyard managers or Pest Control Advisors (PCAs) in California are practicing IPM to some extent, and comments that, “There’s not a PCA or farmer that I talk with that isn’t practicing IPM, although their view sometimes will be a little bit more towards conventional insecticides where others might be a little bit more towards sustainable practices...

    Variable-Rating Fertilizer: Does It Pay Off?

    By Laura Barrera

    Updated May 12, 2020 

    For growers who are trying to follow the “4Rs” of nutrient stewardship — applying the right fertilizer source at the right rate, at the right time, and in the right place, as set forth by The Fertilizer Institute — variable-rate technology (VRT) can help them tackle two of the four, as it can determine the right rate and the right place based on prescription maps... Consider a study conducted in North Dakota, Montana and Minnesota from 2000-2003, where fields were divided so that nitrogen fertilizer was either variable-rated or applied uniformly. As the North Dakota State University (NDSU) article explains, using nitrogen fertilizer recommendations at the time and variable-rate applying it on a zone approach provided no economic advantage over the uniform rate. However, the same article cites a study conducted for more than 10 years on a 40-acre field in North Dakota where variable-rating nitrogen resulted in a $14... A case study on Genesee, Idaho, farmer Eric Odberg also highlights the savings some growers can reap from variable-rating...

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

    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. 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... Satellite technology provides a broader view of agricultureTo assess the current state of affairs across the globe, I solicited the expert advice from one of the preeminent farmers in the United States, Joel Salatin, co-owner of Polyface Farm, and John Fargher, co-founder and COO of Australia-based cutting-edge farm management software, AgriWebb... ”For the farmer interested in owning and operating labor efficient technologies, farm technicians with technological aptitude are a must. Without technicians capable of running and maintaining these new tools, farms cannot tap into such precision herbicide application...

This article will tell you “Why we use Microbial fertilizer” & “Functions of different Microbial products. Why use Microbial Fertilizer ProductsIt’s a kind of product that the life activities of microorganisms make crops get a specific fertilizer effect. Microbial fertilizers products play an essential role in agriculture, not only in improving the supply of soil nutrients, but also in promoting crop growth, disease resistance, and stress resistance. After applying the microbial fertilizer in the soil, the “symbiotic effect of fungi and crops,” “nutrient coordination effect,” “biological nitrogen fixation effect” will occur between the fungus, crops, and soil ecological environment to ensure healthy growth and stability of the crops...

    Corn Fungicides 101: Tips for Protecting Your Crop and Your Bottom Line from Foliar Disease

    By Laura Barrera

    Published Jul 7, 2020 

    Every year foliar diseases take a hit to corn yields across the U... But in economic times when margins are tight, farmers must consider how foliar fungicide applications will impact their bottom line. Deciding whether to use corn fungicides for foliar disease depends on several factors that can vary year to year, including the disease present and its severity, hybrid resistance, weather and field conditions. How Damaging Are Corn Foliar Diseases?According to the Crop Protection Network (CPN), disease caused more than 10% of total estimated bushels lost in four of the five most recent data years (2014 through 2018), with foliar disease being the top culprit for yield loss. The worst offender between 2016 and 2018 was gray leaf spot, which Kiersten Wise says is the foliar disease that annually and nationally has the greatest chance of causing economic impact...

    Trichoderma harzianum effects on control soil pathogens

    By Darren Chan

    Published Mar 25, 2019 

    Here we would like to introduce trichoderma‘s effect on control soil pathogens. Trichoderma grows on the surface of roots, where it provides disease control and enhances root growth. Its spores survive in the soil, but the food it lives on is mostly secreted from the root surface. Since the fungus multiplies on its own, it is different from seed-applied fungicides... Trichoderma kills several major root rot fungi: Pythium, Rhizoctonia, and Fusarium...

    How Brazilian Big Agriculture is Destroying the Brazilian Amazon

    By Maria Dampman

    Published Apr 4, 2018 

    At its worst, Brazilian deforestation claimed over 11,000 square miles a year. With education, advocacy, and widespread support of the Brazilian government, the destruction of the vital forests dropped 84% to 1,700 square miles in 2012... When National Politics and Environmentalism CollideIn 2012, the Brazilian Congress passed a widespread weakening to what is known as the Forest Code... However, with the limited governmental ability to oversee the development of an enormous dense forest just slightly smaller than the continent of Australia, it wasn’t a surprise to anyone when eager farmers and cattlemen started to illegally clear additional land. When this has happened in the past, huge fines have been levied against the offending parties as well as the requirement to return the cleared lands back to forest, making the risk not worth the potential consequences...

    Tim Laatsch recommends having "boots on the ground" during on-farm research. A trusted partner on site can help with taking measurements, laying out treatments, and marking plot corners, so you can stay in the cab and execute the trial properly and accurately. Photo by Koch Agronomic Services.

    6 Steps to a Successful On-Farm Research Trial

    By Laura Barrera

    Updated Mar 1 

    “Because the decisions they make as an outcropping of the research could potentially impact their profitability for years to come. ”The key is to keep it simple and only focus on one management change at a time, as one of the initial mistakes farmers make with on-farm research is trying to answer too many questions at once... In addition to helping you come up with the right question to ask, they can also provide guidance and support throughout the trial... Laatsch recommends the following format:Start with a basic problem statement: “The problem is X…” Come up with a potential solution: “I believe that X…” Determine what you hope to achieve: “Will result in X…” For example: “The problem is I apply two-thirds of my nitrogen prior to planting and I’m concerned I may be losing nitrogen and sacrificing yield opportunity... ”Statistical confidence is simply an outcropping of being able to measure the variation around the average, Laatsch says...

    cover cropping with triticale ,hairy vetch and cow peas late fall?

    By Brady Shortell

    Published Oct 18, 2020 

    Looking at planting triticale with hairy vetch and cow peas for a cover crop next year for a cash crop or corn to be planted late May 2021 using a roller crimper to terminate the cover crop before plant. It’s October 18th, I won’t be able to plant until the 22nd. Night time temps have fluctuated from mid 30s to high 20s no consistency yet. Some nights stay closer to 40. Highs are in the 70s and 80s. Am I too late for any of my covers? Any suggestions on planting rates? Will triticale terminate properly if I follow the method used for Rye, waiting until the entire field is dropping pollen?
