    By Laura Barrera

    Updated Mar 1 

    If you want to make smart, well-informed decisions on your operation, you need relevant, high-quality data to support those decisions, says Tim Laatsch. A great way to achieve this? On-farm research. An Illinois-based farmer, Laatsch knows first-hand the importance of on-farm research. As the Director of Agronomy, North America for Koch Agronomic Services (Koch), he leads a team of agronomists responsible for developing and executing field research strategy...

    HEMP & CANNABIS

    By Christopher Keen

    Published Oct 20, 2018 

    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...

    "Organic farming and food represent one of the major changes in the food industry over the past two decades. Why is organic food so popular, and how are farmers responding to this new demand? These are topics to be discussed in a roundtable series to be held Monday evenings on the University of Nebraska–Lincoln’s East Campus."

    Study: Maximizing Grain Yields won't meet future African needs

    Meeting future cereal demands could depend on expanding responsible irrigation use to raise yield ceilings and stabilize cereal production, said Kindie Tesfaye, agronomist with the International Maize and Wheat Improvement Centre in Ethiopia. Recent analyses have documented regional aquifers that could become sources of sustainable irrigation, though the authors emphasized the importance of withdrawing only what can be replenished by rainfall and recharge.

    Photo: A cornfield in Ghana exhibits signs of water stress and nutrient deficiency. New research from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and its collaborators has found that sub-Saharan Africa will struggle to meet its 2050 grain demands even if it maximizes the yields of corn and four other cereal crops.

    The Skills and Principles of Managed Grazing on Improved Pastures

    Presenter: Woody Lane, Ph.D., Lane Livestock Services
    Host:
    Dr. Jay Parsons, Department of Agricultural Economics, University of Nebraska-Lincoln

    Description:
    Let's say you have a flock of 125 ewes in early lactation, all raising twins. You want to move them into a 3-acre field of improved fast-growing pasture. Question: How long can your flock graze in that field? Or a similar question: How many acres do you need to graze those sheep for 5 days? Or another question: How many inches of grass will a ewe eat each day to meet her nutrient requirements?

    This webinar will give answers to these questions and more. We'll focus on "Managed Grazing" -- the knowledge of how forages grow combined with the skills of moving sheep, estimating intake, balancing the needs of forages and sheep, and managing pastures by grazing sheep in sustainable and efficient ways. We'll describe how to decide when to open the gate, when to move sheep off the paddock, and practical tips about stocking density, electric fences, weed control, gate latches, the grazing wedge, and a new way of describing grazing systems. Basically, we'll describe how to manage improved pastures to capture sunlight efficiently and profitably. Join us for a very interesting session.

    This webinar is made possible with funding support from the American Sheep Industry Association.

    Implementation of Automation System for Humidity Monitoring and Irrigation System

    Authors: L Kamelia, M A Ramdhani, A Faroqi and V Rifadiapriyana

    IOP Conference Series: Materials Science and Engineering

    Publisher: IOP Publishing Ltd

    Smart farming, Precision Agriculture or Smart-Agriculture is a modern agricultural technique that has been widely practiced in developed countries to meet the challenges of increasing demand for food. Smart farming involves a variety of communication and information technologies to improve the quality and quantity of agricultural commodity crops. One application of technology in smart farming is plant cultivation automation system. The automation system for irrigation system will cause the efficiency of energy, time, and amount of water used. This paper discusses the implementation of the soil moisture sensor YL-69 to automate the sprinkler system. Monitoring of sensor measurement is displayed on LCD screen and displayed on line and real time on the website. The test results show if the sensor shows soil moisture value below 15%, the relay will turn on the water pump and turn it off when the moisture value reach 45% with the respond time about 1, 29 second. On line test results show the displayed value in LCD equals to the value displayed in the website.

    Illustration Photo: At the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in Lincoln, NE state energy and extension staff are teaching farmers to use modern sensors to improve irrigation management. In this picture, Darrel Siekman and Gary Zoubek install Watermark Sensors and a data logger.
