    Mechanism of Trichoderma as soil conditioner

    By Darren Chan

    Published Mar 1, 2019

    The hyphae and other substance reproduced by trichoderma can be used as a cementing material to help soil build a stable granular structure, which is porous & full of nutrition... Secondly, trichoderma can improve the solubility of nutrient elements in soil, dissolve phosphorus & Potassium and other insoluble nutriments... And by stimulating the development of roots, it will be more efficient in absorbing nutrients from the soil... but also can use excessive salt to promote its own growth rate to reduce the salt in the rhizosphere microenvironment. As a result, the salinity of the rhizosphere microenvironment will decrease...

    MERCOSUR Farming to Cure Cancer

    By Robert Morgan

    Published Jun 19, 2018

    In Colombia, which is only an Associate Member of MERCOSUR farmers have found large concentrations of Rubidium. Rubidium has no known biological role but has a slight stimulative effect on metabolism, probably because rubidium is like potassium. The two elements are found together in minerals and soils, although potassium is much more abundant than rubidium... When stressed by a deficiency in potassium, some plants, such as sugar beat, will respond to the addition of rubidium... Rubidium is absorbed easily from the gut and becomes distributed by the body, but there is not site where it prefers to accumulate...

    What Farmers Need to Know About Mycorrhizae

    By Laura Barrera

    Published Nov 2, 2018

    If someone asked you, “How do plants take up the water and nutrients they need?” you’d probably tell them through the roots... Although there are many different types of mycorrhizae, the only one crop farmers need to be concerned about is arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF), as 65% of plant species associate with it... The round bodies are spores, and the threadlike filaments are hyphae... And barring anything extreme that’s happened to your fields — such as mining or a toxic spill — your soils should already have AMF in it, says Miranda Hart, a soil microbial ecologist at the University of British Columbia. The way AMF works, Cahill explains, is that they grow inside the plant’s roots, and in exchange for sugar from the plant, the hyphae — the threadlike filaments of the fungi — capture water and nutrients in the soil for the plant...

    Some growers may have had no option but to plant green — as shown above — into their cover crops this year because of poor weather conditions. In this photo by Ted Kornecki, USDA Agricultural Research Service, the farmer is terminating his cereal rye with a roller at the same time he is planting his cotton.

    How to Time Cover Crop Termination and Get an Effective Burndown

    By Laura Barrera

    Published Jul 1, 2019

    With May 2018 to April 2019 being the wettest 12-month period on record, according to NOAA, many farmers across the nation were forced to delay planting. In fact, for the first time on record, less than half of corn was planted by May 19, says the USDA... ”For those with cover crops, these wet conditions likely affected their termination plans, causing some to debate whether they should terminate before or after planting. Penn State Extension Educator and Agronomist Heidi Reed says she saw several farmers in York County, Pa... In fact, some found planting green was better because the cover crops helped keep their fields drier, making it easier for them to drive on their fields and plant than if they would’ve killed the cover crop sooner...

    Top 10 Accounting & Tax Benefits for Farmers & Farming Businesses

    By Tyler Davis

    Published Sep 11, 2019

    Farmers and Agribusiness Companies are granted certain tax breaks and industry-specific deductions from the IRS. The service understands both the complexities and constraints of farmers as well as their essential role in our nation's economy. I have listed out the top ten most important tax benefits, accounting methods, and tax deductions related to farmers... Farms with less than $25 Million of Average Gross Receipts can use the Cash Basis of AccountingCompanies, including farms, with less than $25 million in average annual gross receipts for the past three years, can elect to use either the cash or accrual method of accounting. Under the cash method, the accounting is simpler and allows the taxpayer to record revenue when the cash is received and expenses when the cash is paid...

    Tax Planning for Farmers Considering Selling their Land or Business

    By Tyler Davis

    Published Feb 12

    For many life-long farmers, selling their farm or business is one of the most difficult decisions they will ever make. Even though putting the farm up for sale makes logical sense in most situations, farmers often have an emotional connection to their land and business that exceeds that of other industries... The first question farmers generally ask when selling their land or business is “How much do I owe Uncle Sam?” The answer to that question is “it depends... In contrast, Ordinary gains are taxed at the same rates as W-2, ordinary income... Items that are acquired and sold during the ordinary course of business, such as inventory and harvested crops, typically also generate ordinary income in a business sale...

    Times Are Tough but Don't Cut This One Input

    By Fertility And Soils

    Published Jan 10, 2019

    This is an unquestionably tough time to be a farmer... You hear the same advice all around during times like this: “The farmers who will survive and thrive during tough times are low-cost producers... Farmers are inundated with a number of questionable inputs and, during the toughest of times, it’s not hard to see areas where we can cut rates or cut out products completely... The input that I’m speaking of is the bedrock of all sound agronomy practices: lime. First, why do some farmers tend to neglect liming? A theory I have is that, if you neglect liming, the resulting effect is delayed...

    20 Years Later: What Roundup Ready Crops Taught Us About Weed Management

    By Amanda Allworth

    Published Aug 21, 2018

    It’s been over two decades since the first Roundup Ready crops were planted in commercial fields. At the time of introduction, the technology was revolutionary for farmers, who found a highly effective and convenient chemistry to control a broad spectrum of weeds. Roundup Ready corn and soybeans quickly became the norm in fields across the United States, and as a result, application of glyphosate increased dramatically. The initial ease and success of Roundup Ready technology may have caused some farmers to become lax with their weed management programs, which was ultimately a factor in the introduction of glyphosate-resistant weeds... As new herbicide and seed products, including dicamba and 2,4-D tolerant crops, are introduced, we can take learnings from the Roundup Ready era and develop smarter weed management programs...

    By Robert Morgan

    Published Jun 12, 2018

    For decades, Agricultural businesses have been at the mercy of external as well as internal factors all disregarded by their reliant financial institutions for a multitude of complexities essential for business operations.
