    The Story of AgFuse

    By Pat Rogers

    Published 3 months ago

    In July of 2014, I sat in the audience on the last day of the InfoAg Conference in St Louis. It was my first major farm conference trip outside of somewhat local events that had been put on near my home in the Carolinas. Frankly, my mind was blown with this experience. I had taken in more new information in a three-day period than I had in the previous five years combined... For example, there’s a local irrigation company in my area that used AgFuse to remind its customers about pre-season irrigation maintenance by posting a checklist document to their company’s group page...

    Nutrient Stratification Not a Problem in No-Till

    By Laura Barrera

    Published 2 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. According to University of Nebraska Extension engineer Paul Jasa and Ray Ward, plant scientist and founder of Ward Laboratories in Kearney, Neb. , the resounding answer is: yes, they are... Jasa says he likes to see 100% residue coverage until the crop canopy takes over, but growers need at least 90% to reduce evaporation from the soil surface, according to irrigation engineer Norman Klocke...

    Can You Use Legume Cover Crops in Your Peanut Rotation?

    By Laura Barrera

    Published 2 months ago

    It’s common knowledge among peanut farmers that the farther out you space your peanut crops in your rotation, the better off the peanuts will be. Research backs this up. Jason Sarver, Extension Peanut Specialist for Mississippi State University, shared some trial work published by Dr. Scott Tubbs of the University of Georgia in 2015, that looked at peanut yield when grown in multiple rotation lengths, from continuous peanut to every 4 years... In the book, Phatak explains that they use the legume covers — crimson clover, cahaba vetch or subterranean clover — with the rye or along field borders, around ponds, near irrigation lines and in other non-cropped areas as close to fields as possible, to “provide the food needed to support beneficials at higher populations...

    Surviving a sick day as a small farmer

    By John Moody

    Published 4 months ago

    Sick days... To give one example from our own experience, I invested in drip irrigation this year for our high tunnel, since we finally have sufficient square footage filled in with quality soil to make hand irrigation too onerous and impractical. I made a mental and physical note to get the irrigation material ordered in February, but didn’t actually get this task done until April. That meant that I was trying to put in the drip irrigation in the midst of also dealing with the very mean spring we have had, along with travel and work engagements. You can see how much good almost $200 of drip irrigation is doing me at the moment...

    By Dwight Henry

    The most powerful information every farmer can harbor is the knowledge of his soil, and how they use this knowledge will decide the outcome of the season.
