  • Mechanism of Trichoderma as soil conditioner

    By Darren Chan

    Published 2 months ago

    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 10 months ago

    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 6 months ago

    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...

    7 Ways to Measure Soil Health Improvements

    By Laura Barrera

    Published 2 months ago

    While there are numerous reasons for using cover crops, a primary one is improving soil health. In fact, it’s the one benefit most farmers using cover crops have experienced: In the most recent Cover Crop Survey Annual Report, of those who rated the statement, “Using cover crops has improved soil health on my farm,” 86% agreed or strongly agreed... ”While soil health may be harder to quantify than benefits like biomass production or input savings, there are ways of measuring how cover crops are making a difference in your soil... But to quantify a reduction in erosion, Stott says you place use stakes with measurement marks at the edge of your fields, preferably with one stake in a nearby field that’s not in cover crops for comparison. Over time, you can check those measurements on the stakes to see how little soil you’re losing, if any, compared to the fields that are bare...

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

    By Amanda Allworth

    Published 8 months ago

    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...

    Blockchain Technology: A Lifeline to Small-Scale Farmers

    By Gregory Heilers

    Published 1 years, 3 weeks ago

    Technology has been an integral part of agriculture since at least 5,000 years ago, documented through the use of ploughs in ancient Sumeria... 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. Lest you think this is some fringe movement, or premature technology with no practical application, food industry giants such as Walmart, Nestlé, Dole, and Unilever are actively developing blockchain technology applications with IBM. The result? Walmart’s VP of food safety, Frank Yiannis, stated the company was “encouraged” by the potential for reducing the timeline of investigations into food-borne illness from weeks to seconds...

    How Bacillus mucilaginosus can Prevent drought in the summer?

    By Darren Chan

    Published 10 months ago

    When it comes to drought prevention,everyone thinks that they may need more watering... The reason is that:Bacillus mucilaginosus is also called silicate bacteria,it has strong potassium-dissolving ability,which is selected from the roots of crops and produced by industrial fermentation with a specific medium. Through its life activities in the soil,it increases the supply of plant nutrient elements,stimulates crop growth,inhibits harmful microbial activity,and has a strong effect of increasing production... There are auxin substances and gibberellin substances in the bacteria and fermentation broth of Bacillus mucilaginosus. The bacteria has a cytokinin 36 mg/L in the fermentation broth, gibberellin 348 mg/L, and IAA was 38 μg/ml...

    Can You Use Legume Cover Crops in Your Peanut Rotation?

    By Laura Barrera

    Published 8 months ago

    It’s common knowledge among peanut farmers that the farther out you space your peanut crops in your rotation, the better off the peanuts will be... Jason Sarver, Extension Peanut Specialist for Mississippi State University, shared some trial work published by Dr... ”Growing peanuts and other legume crops too close in rotation to peanuts can result in white mold (shown in photo) or Cylindrocladium black rot on the peanut crop... And because peanuts are a legume, it’s discouraged from growing other legumes in rotation with them. But what about using a legume cover crop? Can you include a legume like crimson clover in a cover crop mix that will be seeded on a field that includes peanuts in the rotation?The answer is a little more complicated than just yes or no...

    Farmer Focus - Clive Bailye - Going Trailed

    By Direct Driller Magazine

    Published 1 month ago

    Our timeliness and the ruts we used to leave in tramlines all but disappeared. Back then If you had told me I would ever consider running a trailed sprayer on my farm again I would have thought you were mad. I was once told the difference between a good farmer and a bad one was “a week” so I have always placed ability to travel and make timely application of inputs highly on my list of farming priorities. So why today do I find myself the proud owner of a new trailed sprayer? Both bigger and heavier than any sprayer we have ever run before, and why am I more confident than ever of timely application with this heavy weight monster? What changed? Soil is what changed, and nothing is more demonstrative of that than this increased ability to carry traffic... Like many other UK farmers most of the land we farm has a now ageing drainage system under it, these systems were put in when grant money for such infrastructure investment was available...
