    How to Create the Most Effective Soil Sampling Program

    By Laura Barrera

    Published Oct 1, 2020 

    , now is a good time to prepare for your soil sampling program. Most universities and the NRCS recommend taking soil samples in the off-season, after the last crop harvest, and before the next cash crop is planted... But before you can grab your soil probe and head out to the field, you need to understand best soil sampling practices and have a plan of action for collecting your samples, so you can accurately capture the soil chemistry and variability of your fields. Poor soil sampling practices can result in incorrect data, which can end up costing you in either inputs or yield. “The foundation of understanding or making an appropriate recommendation comes from having a representative soil sample,” says Jason Ackerson, a Purdue University soil scientist...

    Advantages of seaweed fertilizer for plants

    By Darren Chan

    Published Dec 31, 2019 

    Seaweed fertilizer is an organic fertilizer produced by accurate processing of marine plant seaweed as the primary raw material... Below are the advantages of seaweed fertilizer for plants:1 Nutrient-richThe active seaweed fertilizer contains a large amount of non-nitrogen-containing organic matter, including 40 kinds of minerals such as potassium, calcium, magnesium, iron, zinc, and iodine, and abundant vitamins, which are unmatched by terrestrial plants, especially seaweed polysaccharides unique to seaweeds... 2 Easily absorbed by plantsThe active ingredients in seaweed fertilizers are particularly active after they have been specially treated, and they enter the plants within 2 to 3 hours after application, and they have a speedy absorption and conduction velocity. Alginic acid in seaweed fertilizer can reduce the surface tension of water, forming a layer of film on the surface of the plant, increasing the contact area, water-soluble substances are relatively easy to penetrate the surface cells of stems and leaves so that plants can effectively absorb the nutrients in the seaweed extract. 3 Improve the soilSeaweed fertilizer is a natural biological system that works in harmony with the plant-soil ecosystem...

    Best way to control powdery mildew on grape plant

    By Darren Chan

    Published Oct 22, 2018 

    It’s the grape powdery mildew... While this can be common,it’s a disease which will injury your grape plants and your crop if left untreated... Manual management of powdery mildew helps prevent the disease from overwintering in bark crevices and also the spread of current infections. powdery mildew infects leaves, shoots, bark and developing fruit on grapevines, releasing spores in spring throughout heat, wet conditions. Removing morbid leaves and shoots as they seem and removing dead material at the end of the season helps prevent powdery mildew spreading and overwintering on plants...

    By Darren Chan

    Published Jul 4, 2018 

    First of all,let us understand the soil structureThe soil is a porous system... The solid material in the soil includes both mineral and organic matter. The liquid part refers to the moisture of the soil,which is preserved and moved between the pores of the soil and is the most active part of the soil. The gas part refers to the air of the soil and it is filled with pores that are not occupied by moisture... Among them,the large pores are called gas-filled pores...

    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. Unfortunately, it doesn’t guarantee those benefits will provide a return on investment. 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... 35-per-acre profitability over a uniform rate...

    Why is soil salinization a problem?

    By Darren Chan

    Published Aug 21, 2019 

    What’s Soil SalinizationSoil salinization is one of the most vital soil problems for agricultural production... Soil salinization usually occurs in arid areas, In these areas, soluble salt ions accumulate in the soil. In these areas where plant growth requires irrigation, the Evaporation and transpiration process leaves salt in the soil. In the beginning, the salt will reduce soil productivity and limit crop yields. As the salt content increases, it kills the vegetation and soil microorganism...

    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?

    Milk production and Economic Assessment of Cassava Bagasse in the feed of Dairy Cows

    Authors: Leandro Pereira Lima, Cristina Mattos Veloso, Fabiano Ferreira da Silva, Aureliano José Vieira Pires, Fábio Andrade Teixeira, Paulo Valter Nunes Nascimento

    The addition of 0; 5; 10 and 15% cassava bagasse, based on the dry matter of the total diet of crossbred Holstein v. Zebu cows, was evaluated on milk production and composition and on the impacts of diet costs. The animals, weighing an average of 478.5 kg, were in the middle third lactation period. Diet with 15% cassava bagasse provided a 13.2% increase in production when compared to control. Feed conversion had a quadratic effect with minimum point at 4.2% of cassava bagasse inclusion. Crude protein, the only milk component that changed, increased linearly with the inclusion of cassava bagasse levels. Treatment with 15% cassava bagasse caused a more effective operational cost (42.8% higher when compared to control) and the highest leveling point for milk production and price. The lowest leveling points were treatments with 5 and 10% inclusion of cassava bagasse, which had the best economic results. Concentrates caused cost increase, particularly when roughage : concentrate ratio decreased due to higher cassava bagasse inclusion levels.
