  • Are Nitrogen Stabilizers Worth Using? 3 Factors to Consider

    By Laura Barrera

    Updated May 26, 2020 

    When it comes to fertility in crop production, nitrogen is one of the most critical nutrients involved. “Nitrogen plays an important part in many essential functions and compounds necessary for life,” says the University of Missouri Extension and can be found in various parts of plants. Unfortunately, nitrogen fertilizer is susceptible to leaving the soil before it can be used up by the plant. According to Cornell University Cooperative Extension, nitrogen loss can occur in three ways:Denitrification: Nitrate converts into gaseous forms of nitrogen which are lost to the atmosphere Volatilization: Ammonium (NH4) converts to ammonia (NH3) gas which is released to the atmosphere Leaching: Nitrate, which is negatively charged like soil particles and not well retained by the soil, is washed downward by excess soil water beyond the root zone of crops... The company tested three products — Instinct, Agrotain Plus, and Nutrisphere-N — on its central Illinois, central Indiana, Kentucky and Ohio sites...

    How Feasible is Organic Corn?

    By Vijayalaxmi Kinhal

    How to Create the Most Effective Soil Sampling Program

    By Laura Barrera

    Published Oct 1, 2020 

    With harvest either underway or on the horizon for most growers in the U. S. , 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... The Olsen method is optimized for soils in more arid environments with high levels of carbonates, so it wouldn’t be ideal for a farmer in a region like Indiana to send his samples to a lab that uses it...

    Role of the Virtual marketplace in facilitating trade challenges

    By Ammar Alshami

    Published Jan 17, 2019 

    A virtual marketplace is an online forum where many vendors come and sell their products to interested buyers through a third party website or app. The virtual marketplace is differentiated from an e-commerce site because it offers products from many vendors instead of single and from a buyer’s perspective; it provides more options for the single item. It is basically a non-physical bazaar that exists in spatial digital dimensions and provides one-click access to sellers and interested buyers. In this world of globalization and digitalization, time is considered precious commodity and diminishing physical constraints for shoppers and overhead costs for vendors are considered to be the elixir to carry forward the businesses in this new era... The biggest advantage of the virtual marketplace, as it looks, is the fact that now exotic products such as figs from Jerusalem, coconuts from the shores of Bali or Tamarind from the lush gardens of India is at your doorstep...

    Value Added Products - The future for farms of all sizes?

    By John Moody

    Published Apr 9, 2018 

    Many farmers have felt the pinch of falling food prices over the past year. Some sectors of the ag industry, especially dairy, are in a free fall, with our fellow farm friends hurting badly as low prices, consolidation, and other forces forcing many to sell off operations or even sell their farms. It is difficult days, but as I noted in my earlier article, things haven’t been good for US farmers in quite some time. Smart farmers who want to stay in farming are looking for ways to stay or become profitable... Smoking Goose in Indianapolis is just one of hundreds of such operations...

    Precision Farming Solutions for Weeds in Soybean Farms

    By Vijayalaxmi Kinhal

    Updated Sep 10, 2020 

    The weed control measures used in soybean production need to be overhauled. The development of resistance in weeds has made current technology and management increasingly expensive and comes accompanied with heavy yield losses. Precision management solutions can reduce chemical use in several ways. Current Weed Management in SoybeansSoybean is important for the global economy as it is used as a source for oil and protein (for people and livestock) and as biodiesel. Soybean is the crop with the largest monoculture in the world and with 90% of it grown in Argentina, Brazil, the United States, China, and India...

    Citizens Weekly Newsletter June 22, 2018

    By Angie Setzer

    Published Jun 22, 2018 

    This Week In Agriculture:A Mixed Bag of Information from the Week that Was: June 22, 2018· Another volatile week as traders work to decipher what a continued trade war could mean for commodities going forward and the old adage “rain makes grain” is put to the test. When the closing bell rang for the week we saw December corn down nearly 5 cents, December wheat down 12 and November soybeans down 14. · The week started relatively weak as heat that had built throughout the bulk of the Corn Belt over the weekend was expected to give way to cooler temperatures coupled with extreme moisture in areas of the Belt that had seen beneficial rainfall the week before. With corn ratings nationally sitting at 78% good to excellent—a near record high and bean ratings at 73% the common idea was rain would continue to benefit production... · Traders remain perplexed about what President Trump is doing when it comes to trade, citing issues with NAFTA partners, Japan, China, the EU, India and just about anyone else we are doing business with, while others are quick to point out he was clear about a desire to seek a unilateral approach to trade agreements...

    India is in the process of formulating a Scheme for solar power in the rural areas

    The Government of India is in the process of formulating a Scheme ‘Kisan Urja Suraksha evam Utthaan Mahabhiyan (KUSUM)’ which, inter alia, provides for:

    installation of grid-connected solar power plants each of capacity up to 2 MW in the rural areas;
    installation of standalone off-grid solar water pumps to fulfill irrigation needs of farmers not connected to grid;
    solarization of existing grid-connected agriculture pumps to make farmers independent of grid supply and also enable them to sell surplus solar power generated to DISCOM and get extra income; and
    solarization of tube-wells and lift irrigation projects of Government sector.
