  • 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...

    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...

    How to Cultivate Cotton Organically

    By Vijayalaxmi Kinhal

    Updated Oct 24, 2020 

    Though most of the organic cotton in the world comes from Asia, Texas in the USA is also a major producer. Although specific growing methods may vary based on region and farm size, there are general principles that can be applied throughout the world when it comes to growing organic cottonEconomicsThere are many reasons to grow cotton organically. The market share of organic cotton has grown from 1% in 2008 to 21% in 2018. Half of this is grown in India, with China (17%), Kyrgyzstan (7%), and Turkey (7%) being the next major producers. It takes three years for farmers to convert to organic farming, as this is the time required for soil to become free of chemical fertilizers and pesticides...

    Blockchain Technology: A Lifeline to Small-Scale Farmers

    By Gregory Heilers

    Published Apr 14, 2018 

    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. Still, some in the industry are unsure of the latest development to disrupt agriculture. From Chinese pork to Mexican mangoes, blockchain technology is already fostering direct marketing, improving traceability for compliance, reducing waste, and increasing profit margins... He enjoyed extensive hands-on involvement building his father’s grass-fed beef, breeding meat goat, and poultry farm in south-central Kentucky, which leverages the Internet to direct market (and should start looking into blockchain soon!)...

    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... These laws vary by state and change regularly - for instance, my home state of Kentucky recently greatly expanded their cottage food law just a few weeks ago...

    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...
