  • How Brazilian Big Agriculture is Destroying the Brazilian Amazon

    By Maria Dampman

    Published Apr 4, 2018 

    According to Brazil’s space agency that tracks deforestation through satellite imaging, over 1,000 square miles (more than twice the size of Los Angeles) was cleared in the period of August 2012 to July 2013... Will Improving the Brazilian Economy Kill the Rainforest?Fearnside states that Brazil’s explosive growth and exportation of soy to China is helping the Brazilian economy dig itself out of a financial hole but with dire consequences... Some of their land is already irrevocably lost in government funded numerous infrastructure improvements like highways and the construction of hydroelectric dams... Extreme poverty, lack of educational and work opportunities, the loss of their native lands and rituals, and disease have destroyed any hope for the future of many of the youth...

    How Smart Farming Protects the Environment While Saving Crop Loss

    By Jenny Hoo

    Published Sep 6, 2019 

    Coping with Crop Production LossSmart Farming concept first came about when the realization of production and food loss figure surges despite numerous measures applied in the crop field. In crop production for developing nation, a total of 32% of production loss occurs while 38 percent is loss in consumption in developed nation[1]. This poses as a major threat to the human population as these losses would have been enough to feed one billion people! In a report by McKinsey, global food waste and loss is worth $940 billion a year, followed by carbon footprint of 4... In addition to the loss, by year 2050, the global world will break 10 billion people and the need to feed them would spike... Thanks to the geniuses who came out with the revolutionary smart farming concept that aims to resolve the challenges of crop and consumption loss as well as food waste...

    By Darren Chan

    Published Sep 20, 2018 

    Rose,so romantic and lovely. It is really a pleasure to plant roses. Today when you come to your beloved rose bushes, you are surprised to find that your lovely roses are covered by a dusting of white powder on buds,stems and leaves. These white powder makes your roses,once beautiful and heathy,look sick and ugly... When the disease is mild,the growth of rose would be weakened, the young leaves are distorted and deformed,and the flower posture grows irregular, which affects the growth and loss of ornamental value...

    Oh deer! Deer damage and what farmers can do about it

    By John Moody

    Published May 21, 2018 

    It is that time of year again, at least in my parts. As things go from the tunnel to the field, all our friendly little four legged foes start to to make dinner plans… and breakfast plans. Some are making midnight snack plans as well... How significant? How is a over billion dollars per year? “The National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) estimated that losses to field crops, vegetables, fruits, and nuts exceeded $765 million USD in 2001. White-tailed deer were responsible for 58% of field crop losses and 33% of losses to vegetables, fruits, and nuts...

    Top 5 Reasons Why Black Oats Are The Best Beginner's Cover Crop

    By Cover Crops

    Published Sep 14, 2018 

    It's a fact: cover crops tend to make good farmers into great farmers and average farmers into bad farmers. Cover crops work. But, management is key and the learning curve can be steep... This also means that when nitrogen is applied to the cash crop following the covers, the nitrogen won't get tied up in trying to break down the cellulose of the cover crops but will contribute to the cash crop at a fairly rapid pace... Once they grow too large, not only do you have to deal with tougher planting conditions due to the biomass, but the thick cellulose stalks are harder to kill...

    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... In order for the taxpayer to defer taxes, they must identify the new property within forty-five days of the disposition closing date and close on the new “like-kind” property within 180 days of the disposition closing date... However, taxpayers are allowed to improve the new property purchased and include the improvements in the total value of the new property, as long as these improvements are completed within 180 days of the closing date of the disposed property...

    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... Cultivars that emerge quickly, and have a fast-early development, will achieve canopy closure sooner and minimize weed establishment by cutting light penetration... Closer and more planting: Decrease the distance between the rows to 20 inches, so that soybean can quickly cover the intermittent ground with their foliage... Later, between-row cultivation is used when both weeds and crops are larger but before the crop canopy closes... Sorghum residue mulch reduces populations of Brachiaria plantaginea by 96%, Sida rhombifolia by 91%, and Bidens pilosa by 59%...

    Published Oct 22, 2018 

    If you grow grapes,you may reaching to see a white powdery substance on the grape leaves. It’s the grape powdery mildew. Especally in main grapevine growing area such as Americas,Europe and Australia. The disease seems as a whitish-gray powdery coating on the leaves or fruit caused by plant mycelium and conidia on the surface of the plant... Spray a protectant when flower buds are full and close to burst, wetting all plant surfaces however not saturating them, which causes the antifungal agent to drip off...

  • cover cropping with triticale ,hairy vetch and cow peas late fall?

    By Brady Shortell

    Published Oct 18, 2020 

    Looking at planting triticale with hairy vetch and cow peas for a cover crop next year for a cash crop or corn to be planted late May 2021 using a roller crimper to terminate the cover crop before plant. It’s October 18th, I won’t be able to plant until the 22nd. Night time temps have fluctuated from mid 30s to high 20s no consistency yet. Some nights stay closer to 40. Highs are in the 70s and 80s. Am I too late for any of my covers? Any suggestions on planting rates? Will triticale terminate properly if I follow the method used for Rye, waiting until the entire field is dropping pollen?

  • Managing for Soil Health can suppress Pests

    Authors: Amanda Hodson and Edwin E. Lewis

    Journal Title: California Agriculture

    Publisher: University of California, Los Angeles

    Abstract

    A “healthy” soil can be thought of as one that functions well, both agronomically and ecologically, and one in which soil biodiversity and crop management work in synergy to suppress pests and diseases. UC researchers have pioneered many ways of managing soil biology for pest management, including strategies such as soil solarization, steam treatment and anaerobic soil disinfestation, as well as improvements on traditional methods, such as reducing tillage, amending soil with organic materials, and cover cropping. As managing for soil health becomes more of an explicit focus due to restrictions on the use of soil fumigants, integrated soil health tests will be needed that are validated for use in California. Other research needs include breeding crops for disease resistance and pest suppressive microbial communities as well as knowledge of how beneficial organisms influence plant health.

    "The innovative company is developing a new winter oilseed crop under the CoverCress brand. It's planted near corn harvest, and harvested immediately before soybean planting, enabling three full season crops in two seasons. Derived from field pennycress, a native winter annual, the low carbon intensity oil from the plant represents a new scalable source of material for producing fuels like renewable diesel, biodiesel and sustainable aviation fuel."
