    By Christopher Keen

    Published 11 months ago

    We just received a wonderful testimonial from a grower in California whose crop was infected with Russet Mites. He is using our new Aloe 420 product on his crop. This is what he had to say:To the Aloe420 Team:I took over a 400 outdoor plant grow that was totally stressed by russet mites and if it were not for applying Aloe420 I would have lost the grow. The plant was split in half from the mite infestation and after 5 weeks of Aloe420 treatment, the plant has grown back together!Aloe420 saved us, and we will use it in our protocol from seed to pre-flower in all future grows...

    4 Steps to Building Soil Organic Matter in the South

    By Laura Barrera

    Published 1 years, 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. And for good reason. 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... He knows one farmer who decided to grow a mix of sorghum sudangrass, sunn hemp, daikon radish, sunflower and cowpeas right after his corn crop, before planting winter wheat...

    20 Years Later: What Roundup Ready Crops Taught Us About Weed Management

    By Amanda Allworth

    Published 1 years, 1 month ago

    It’s been over two decades since the first Roundup Ready crops were planted in commercial fields. At the time of introduction, the technology was revolutionary for farmers, who found a highly effective and convenient chemistry to control a broad spectrum of weeds. Roundup Ready corn and soybeans quickly became the norm in fields across the United States, and as a result, application of glyphosate increased dramatically. The initial ease and success of Roundup Ready technology may have caused some farmers to become lax with their weed management programs, which was ultimately a factor in the introduction of glyphosate-resistant weeds... Purdue University and the University of Illinois are two institutions that offer resistance testing for weeds including Palmer amaranth, waterhemp and giant ragweed...

    Times Are Tough but Don't Cut This One Input

    By Fertility And Soils

    Published 8 months ago

    This is an unquestionably tough time to be a farmer. A trade war has beaten down already marginal prices, inputs have risen more than anyone could have predicted and many of us have experienced a so-called thousand-year weather event--not only once but twice in the last four years. You hear the same advice all around during times like this: “The farmers who will survive and thrive during tough times are low-cost producers. ” For the most part, this is very good advice... Here’s one quick sidenote: overliming or using industrial by-products like slag can cause an excessively high pH that has much the same effect as underliming...

    How Bacillus mucilaginosus can Prevent drought in the summer?

    By Darren Chan

    Published 1 years, 3 months ago

    When it comes to drought prevention,everyone thinks that they may need more watering. 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. It is currently the most significant and widely recognized microbial agent...

    Blockchain Technology: A Lifeline to Small-Scale Farmers

    By Gregory Heilers

    Published 1 years, 5 months ago

    Technology has been an integral part of agriculture since at least 5,000 years ago, documented through the use of ploughs in ancient Sumeria. Today, drone and GPS farming is old news.

By selling through the blockchain, farmers living in all types of economies, from developing to post-industrial, have the opportunity to increase their sales and profit margins, while enhancing food safety...

    Nuisance Lawsuits are Taking a Bite Out of Big Pork

    Published 1 years, 1 month ago

    In 1611, William Aldred took his neighbor to court. Thomas Benton was being sued for “erecting a hogstye so near the house of the plaintiff that the air thereof was corrupted. ” In common language, the pigs stank, making it impossible for Aldred to enjoy his home which, in his words, had become “unbearable to live in. ” The courts sided with Aldred, saying the odor was “depriving him of his dignity” and therefore, a violation of his rights... “The NC Farm Act is unjust and unnecessary, and it places the financial priorities of a global polluter over community members impacted by the pests, odors and other hazards of industrial agriculture practices, Jamie Cole, policy advocate at the NC Conservation Network, was quoted in the same Newsobserver...

    Innovation in the European Bioeconomy: 15 million euro project optimizes Value Chains for Miscanthus and Hemp

    The BBI demonstration project “GRowing Advanced industrial Crops on marginal lands for biorEfineries” (GRACE) under the coordination of the University of Hohenheim in Stuttgart pursues these aims as a unique consortium made up of universities, agricultural companies and industry. This will be achieved by knowledge exchange between these groups, together with new crop varieties and cultivation experiments on areas that have been polluted by heavy metals, for example, or are unattractive for food production due to lower yields.

    The EU and the industrial association Bio-based Industries Consortium (BIC) are supporting the project with € 12.3 million through their private-public partnership (PPP) Bio-based Industries Joint Undertaking (BBI JU). The private project partners are contributing the remaining € 2.7 million.
