  • 4 Steps to Building Soil Organic Matter in the South

    By Laura Barrera

    Published 6 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 5 months 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...

    How Brazilian Big Agriculture is Destroying the Brazilian Amazon

    By Maria Dampman

    Published 10 months ago

    The rampant deforestation of the Amazon began in the 1970s when the government of Brazil determined they needed to build over 9,000 miles of roads help integrate the rainforest with the populated bordering areas... Widespread contamination of Brazil’s soil and water, the marked decrease of oxygen in the Earth’s atmosphere and the extinction of countless plants and animals made scientists extremely concerned about the planet’s future... For a while, the work of many environmental groups, agencies and celebrities had been able to slow the unchecked destruction of forest land. 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...

The feasibility study helps to “frame” and “flesh-out” specific business scenarios so they can be studied in-depth... During the feasibility process you may investigate a variety of ways of organizing the business and positioning your product in the marketplace...

    How Bacillus mucilaginosus can Prevent drought in the summer?

    By Darren Chan

    Published 7 months ago

    Now,there is a better way that we can use microbiological fertilizers like Bacillus mucilaginosus to prevent drought. The reason is that:Bacillus mucilaginosus is also called silicate bacteria,it has strong potassium-dissolving ability,which is selected from the roots of crops and produced by industrial fermentation with a specific medium. Through its life activities in the soil,it increases the supply of plant nutrient elements,stimulates crop growth,inhibits harmful microbial activity,and has a strong effect of increasing production... Bacillus mucilaginosus can secrete plant growth regulators such as auxin and gibberellin,increase roots and make seedlings strong,and directly enhance drought resistance of plants. There are auxin substances and gibberellin substances in the bacteria and fermentation broth of Bacillus mucilaginosus...

    Agrilend.co Utilizes Equity or Zero Interest Loans to Farmers, Here is Why.

    By Robert Morgan

    Published 7 months ago

    However, banks are in the business of lending and borrowing and lending agribusiness debt over and over and over until your credit ratings are jeopardized to the point where your cost of borrowing puts your business in a position where the bank will eventually own the business, through default. First, you have to understand the more liabilities the bank has the more valuable it is for those who own it... The first slice of value that equity owners of the bank lay claim to is the difference between assets and debt, also on the liability side, this slice referred to as the tangible equity or book value of the equity holders would receive if the bank assets are liquidated at fair market value and all debt is paid at par or parity... , the flow of tax savings is incremental to all loans provided to borrowers, the dividend paid to equity holders is the difference between the asset cash flow and the after tax liability associated with deposits and subordinated debt, Since equity value depends on its dividend, it is affected by the liability structure. Simply put the more liabilities the bank has the more valuable its assets are, because having more liabilities allows federally regulated FDIC Insured Institutions to borrow more and more money from the Federal Reserve, making itself more money, however for the agricultural business everytime it borrows more and more funds from the bank its credit rating drops from A to C paper putting itself at risk of default and eventually allowing the bank to own the Agribusiness...
