    4 Steps to Building Soil Organic Matter in the South

    By Laura Barrera

    Published Jul 18, 2018

    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...

    The Future of Fruit Farming: MD2 Pineapple

    By Jenny Hoo

    Published Sep 13, 2019

    Pineapple pineapple cultivation Of late, the talk of the town seems to be revolving around the planting of MD2 pineapple. The questions is, why is this MD2 pineapple so popular?Pineapple is known to contain highest amount of vitamin C among all various types of fruits. It also contains a fair amount of magnesium, calcium, potassium and iron and develops a bromelin, of which is a type of enzyme. First started back in 1961, a hybrid variety namely “73-114”, developed by Pineapple Research Institude (PRI) in Hawaii was found to be extraordinary and was taken to Costa Rica for its first trial industrial planting. The variety was later renamed MD2 to honour the wife of the then General Manager of the Maui Pineapple Company[1]...

    1031 Exchanges and Farm Land: 5 Things that Landowners Need to Know

    By Tyler Davis

    Published Aug 2, 2019

    A 1031 Exchange is a tax-deferred swap program in which farmers and others in the agriculture industry can participate. Farmland, vacant land, and certain agriculture assets are considered real estate assets under the Internal Revenue Code. As much, farmers and others are able to utilize Internal Revenue Code (IRC) Section 1031 in order to defer tax upon the disposition of farmland and acquisition of a “like-kind” piece of property. Section 1031 exchanges, which originally began in the 1920’s, have seen numerous tweaks and changes over the years to get us to the rules that are in place today... While there has been extensive guidance and content on 1031 Exchanges in the context of residential, retail, office, and industrial properties, there is a lack of content on how 1031 exchanges apply to the agriculture industry...

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

    By Amanda Allworth

    Published Aug 21, 2018

    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...

    Grain Drying Technology Using Paddy Husk

    By SUNCUE Grain Dryer

    Published Mar 28, 2019

    Burning paddy husk in a rice husk furnace can be a complete substitute for gas or diesel by burning paddy husk to provide necessary thermal energy. This not only increases the millers/farmer’s income through significantly reducing drying cost and improving grain quality, it is also an important 21st century drying industry breakthrough. Paddy husk had long been considered rural waste, but with this technical innovation it can produce amazing thermal energy. The thermal energy generated by 1 kilogram of paddy husk is about 3,000 to 3,500 kcal... It can be used as an industrial insulation material, organic fertilizer, soil improvement mechanism, deodorant or other agricultural use media...

    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.
