    Will Changes in Trade and Low Commodity Prices Bring 1980 2.0?

    By Kayla Hedrick

    Published 4 weeks ago

    However, the aging farmer population may actually benefit agriculture in the near term as we approach what many suggest will be another farm crisis reminiscent of the last major crisis in the 1980s. Back then, markets evaporated and prices dropped dramatically leaving many farmers without the means to pay the bills and having to foreclose on family family farms... Even if they weren’t actively farming at the time, they were old enough to recognize the turmoil caused by trade embargos and the subsequent years of low commodity prices. They learned the hard way to adjust their operations in order to avoid facing a similar crisis in the future... ” The similarities are all too present...

    4 Steps to Building Soil Organic Matter in the South

    By Laura Barrera

    Published 2 months ago

    As we learn more about what goes on in the world beneath our feet, increased attention has been placed on soil organic matter... While it only makes up a small percentage of most soils, the Sustainable Agriculture Research & Education (SARE) says it’s the “very foundation for healthy and productive soils” — and the more organic matter there is, the better the results. Consider the following findings from SARE and the NRCS:A study of soils in Michigan demonstrated potential crop-yield increases of about 12% for every 1% organic matter... One percent of organic matter in the top 6 inches of soil holds approximately 27,000 gallons of water per acre... When North Carolina corn yield champion Russell Hedrick increased his soil organic matter from 2...

    Nutrient Stratification Not a Problem in No-Till

    By Laura Barrera

    Published 1 month ago

    A common concern growers may have when they move to a no-till system is nutrient stratification. Without tillage to mix fertilizer into the soil, no-tillers may wonder whether the nutrients applied to the soil surface are reaching the crop roots... Even though stratification — the non-uniform distribution of nutrients within a soil’s depth, with higher concentrations of nutrients toward the soil surface — does occur in no-till, it should not be a concern. In fact, they say it’s a natural phenomenon and as long as you’re managing your no-till system properly, you shouldn’t have a problem. Stratification: A natural effectWhen you fertilize your pasture, your rangeland or your lawn, how deep you till it in?That’s the question Jasa asks farmers who worry about nutrient stratification in their no-till systems...

    Traditional Procedures To Qualify For A Bank Loan For Agriculture Lending VS Agrilend

    By Robert Morgan

    Published 3 months ago

    The procedures common and absolutely necessary and does not always guarantee a loan will proceed with a bonafide commitment from the bank or lender. These procedures are feasibility studies, environmental studies, certified business valuations, real estate appraisals, and even equipment appraisals...

    Million Dollar Dirt

    By Amanda Allworth

    Published 2 months ago

    But what makes some soils more productive than others? That’s a complicated question to answer, but we do know that the healthiest soils share some common characteristics. While some of these are difficult to change, there are management practices you can employ to improve soil quality. Soil health 101When you think about soil, you probably don’t consider that it is alive. In fact, there are more microorganisms in a teaspoon of healthy soil than there are people on Earth. Roots, earthworms, bacteria, fungi, actinomycetes, algae, protozoa, nematodes, mites and small insects work together to help build soil aggregates (sand, silt and clay)...

    How Cover Crops Affect Your Fertilizer Strategy

    By Laura Barrera

    Published 3 months ago

    When it comes to cover crops and nutrient management, a lot of the focus is on what cover crops can do for soil fertility. Depending on the species being used, they can prevent leftover nutrients from running off into waterways or even produce some fertilizer for future crop use. But how should farmers adjust their fertilizer practices for their cash crops following cover crops? John Pike, a contract researcher and cover crop specialist for the Zea Maize Foundation and IL Sustainable Agriculture Partnership, and a former Research Agronomist at the University of Illinois at Dixon Springs Research station, says that while there are some nuances that need to be planned for, the basic principles of soil fertility and crop management are much the same. “It’s a matter of fine-tuning the cover crop system to fit the soils, climate and equipment that’s available in the operation that we’re talking about on any given day,” he says. “We’re talking about soil fertility and growing corn and beans and wheat or whatever the crop is, so approach it from a logical standpoint, one step at a time, to figure out the best system for the crops, soils and equipment you’re dealing with...

    Are CSAs still okay?

    By John Moody

    Published 4 months ago

    Are CSAs still a viable business model for small farms? In the early 2000s, we hit a heyday for local farm and foods... Instead of a farmer shelling out all the early season costs out of pocket or via a bank loan - seed, fertilizer, and so much else - those who would later receive food from that farm FRONTED the necessary finances to get the season off and running... Department of Agriculture shows that while more farmers are selling directly to consumers, local food sales at farmers markets, farm stands and through community supported agriculture have lost some momentum... But while some CSAs are struggling, many are still going strong, even growing...
