  • 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...

    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...

    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...

    A Tale of Two Dairies - Sweet Grass Dairy

    By John Moody

    There is a stretch of interstate that runs crooked across the center of the US Midwest, connecting the rust belt region of northeast Ohio to the lands just beyond the Appalachia in central Kentucky.

    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...

    Prevented Planting? Cover Crops Offer a Silver Lining

    By Laura Barrera

    Published Jul 18, 2019  

    Wet conditions across the country forced many farmers to forgo their plans for the season and take prevented planting payments instead. The USDA says that as of July 8, 2019, its paid roughly $184 million in claims for prevented planting because of floods and excess moisture. University of Illinois ag economist Gary Schnitkey estimates payouts could reach a record-setting $3. 578 billion... ”A Purdue Extension article by Purdue agronomist Eileen Kladivko and Indiana NRCS State Soil Health Specialist Barry Fisher explains there are several soil health benefits to using cover crops on prevented plant acres, including:Protection from wind and water erosionHelp build soil organic matter and soil aggregationImproved water infiltrationReduced soil compaction (deep-rooting species can often provide greater benefits in this situation because they have a longer time to grow)“What’s great about prevented plant, considering that it’s unfortunate that it happened, is it gives farmers the opportunity to plant something in early August with good seed-to-soil contact, and it’s going to help farmers have really good stands,” Carlson says...

    How to Cultivate Cotton Organically

    By Vijayalaxmi Kinhal

    Updated Oct 24, 2020  

    Half of this is grown in India, with China (17%), Kyrgyzstan (7%), and Turkey (7%) being the next major producers... However, by the third year, the yield was similar to conventional farms, in an Indian experiment, and the ROI of organic cotton was 25% higher, as production costs are less... In countries where GMO cotton seeds are allowed like the USA and India, contamination of seeds due to cross-pollination from neighboring fields growing GMO crops remains a challenge... Some examples are:The American Upland a hybrid of Gossypium hirsutum used in the USSea Island cotton from Gossypium barbadenseH-10 and JHK-1 in IndiaLocal varieties available in countries like India are suitable for shallow soils... Shallow rooted Indian hybrids suitable for organic cultivation are H-8, JK-4, Ankoor-09, and Ankoor 651...
