  • Weed Control in Organic Soybean Farms

    By Vijayalaxmi Kinhal

    Updated Oct 24, 2020 

    Experts all agree that there is no silver bullet to control weeds in the organic cultivation of soybeans. Farmers need to use a combination of measures to keep weeds at bay in the short and long term. Soybean vs WeedsWeed control is the main problem in organic agriculture including in soybeans. It is more difficult to control weeds in soybeans because of their compact foliage, which takes longer than grain crops to produce an interlocking canopy that shades inter-row area. On the other hand, weeds have various natural traits that help them spread and establish...

    7 Common Plant Diseases: How to Identify & Treat Them

    By Darren Chan

    Published Apr 21, 2020 

    For home gardeners, nothing is more frustrating than seeing their work destroyed by pests and diseases. The disease occurs when environmental conditions are suitable for the growth of pathogens on susceptible hosts. Some pathogens attack a variety of plants, while others attack only specific plants. In addition, some pathogens can attack all parts of the plant, while others attack only selected tissues... The affected plant tissue becomes a translucent milky yellow slime with an odor...

    Nutrient Stratification Not a Problem in No-Till

    By Laura Barrera

    Published Aug 13, 2018 

    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... According to a paper written by University of Kentucky soil scientist John Grove, Ward and University of Maryland soil scientist Ray Weil, research conducted in Kentucky from 1980-81 looked at corn’s uptake of surface-applied potassium under moldboard plowed and no-tilled plots that were established in 1970...

    By Laura Barrera

    Published Sep 5, 2019 

    When it comes to creating a cover crop mix, the options are endless. You need to determine what kind of species you’ll use, how many you’ll use, and at what seeding rates.

Fortunately, there are several free tools available today that can guide both new and experienced cover crop users through the process of developing their own mix...

    Root Exudates 101: What They Do and Why They Matter

    By Laura Barrera

    Published Mar 23, 2020 

    When you picture what’s happening below ground in your fields, you probably imagine a web of roots branching out to provide your crops support, nutrients and water. But root growth isn’t the only thing happening beneath the surface. Roots are also secreting chemical compounds, known as root exudates, which play an important role in both crop production and soil health. Released primarily from the root hairs and cells immediately behind the penetrating root tip, says an Agronomy for Sustainable Development article, root exudates attract and sustain a variety of microorganisms, like arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi and nitrogen-cycling bacteria, in the rhizosphere, which is the zone of soil directly surrounding the roots... Some plants will produce more sticky root exudates made of polysaccharides, which are essentially sugar molecules bonded together...

    What Agribusiness Data Can and Can't Tell You

    By Marjorie Valin

    Published Aug 2 

    In agribusiness, big data means collecting everything. The temperature of the air as you plant, the moisture of the kernel as you harvest, the exact coordinate of each weed you find; it all gets absorbed into the digital cloud, analyzed, and processed. The end result is that we know what seeds grow the best in different conditions, statistically speaking. However, this can lead to homogenized recommendations. Sure, the corn hybrid ‘SKY-3122’ may rate the best in some parts of the country, but does that mean it’s best for your customers’ farms? The all-time favorite food across the US may be a good old cheeseburger fresh off the grill, but try to make everyone eat one and you’ll end up with a lot of unhappy vegetarians...

    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...
