    Published Jul 10, 2018 

    In fact, there are more microorganisms in a teaspoon of healthy soil than there are people on Earth. Roots, earthworms, bacteria, fungi, actinomycetes, algae, protozoa, nematodes, mites and small insects work together to help build soil aggregates (sand, silt and clay). Some of the characteristics of healthy soils are inherent, while others are dynamic and can be influenced by management decisions... Dynamic soil characteristicsMany soil characteristics are amendable depending on the way soils are managed... Soil organic matter content, microbial populations, bulk density, infiltration rate, soil water and nutrient holding capacity are examples of dynamic soil characteristics that change over a shorter time period with or without human intervention...

    Pea, used as a weeding tool, besides its effectiveness, progressively shows all its agronomic advantages in a rotation

    Michel Mercier: Peas as an Agronomic Weeding Tool

    By Direct Driller Magazine

    Published Aug 24, 2018 

    From Direct Driller Magazine: Issue 2Written by Frédéric ThomasLike many farmers, Michel Mercier first got into direct drilling based on the economic savings it offered... On his soils with low potential (gravelly to stony silts with a good proportion of flint) in the North-East of Chartres (Eure-et-Loir), he re-taught himself to respect the soil by means of TMCE (Mineral Technology Culture and Breeding – www... The crops are doing well or better than they did under his previous farming system... 7% and with little plant cover,” says Michel... However, the idea of destroying the improved soil structure that took so much time and patience to progress to its current state alongside fears of bringing up dormant weed seed to the surface soon put Michel off that possible solution to the grass weed issue he faced...

    Mixed cultivation can achieve higher yields, new study found

    By Isla Miller

    Published Jul 30 

    Nowadays, single cultivation occupies the dominant position of arable land, and large areas of land are occupied by single, promising fine varieties with high yield... Mixed cultures provide a potential option for single cultures... However, because there are few studies on this method, especially from an agricultural point of view, mixed cultures are rare in cultivable agriculture. A team led by Professor Christian at the Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich now reveals that mixed cultures actually produce higher yields than single cultures in cultivable agriculture... Mixed culture draws on the ecological principle that ecosystems can more effectively function in places where biodiversity is high...

    Benefits of humic acid in agriculture

    By Darren Chan

    Published Jun 24, 2019 

    Humic acid is a mixture of natural organic macromolecular compounds, which exists in all soils, plants and animals,and have been widely used in agricultural production in recent years due to their unique physiological functions. Features of using Humic acidImproved soil structure, prevents high water and nutrient losses in bad soils... Plant drought stressUnder drought conditions, the application of humic acid-containing fertilizer can promote the increase of proline content in plant leaves to improve the drought resistance of crops. Plant salt and alkali stressHumic acid can enhance the salt resistance by regulating the change of fructose concentration and alleviating the damage of material membrane under salt stress. Plant temperature stressUnder low temperature stress, humic acid can increase crops’s proline and abscisic acid content, reduce the spead of transpiration rate, stomatal conductance and net photosynthetic rate of plants...

  • Have the challenges of farming changed?

    By Ray Bohacz

    Updated Nov 23 

    Have the challenges of farming truly changed much over the decades or have our expectations changed? Has the affluence of our nation since WWII impacted our perception of agriculture when compared to 70 years ago? Do we need/want more now to feel that we are successful? As we approach the Thanksgiving holiday, I am sincerely interested in your thoughts on these questions. Thank you and please write as long a response as you deem necessary.

    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?

    Might as well.. and I don't mean that sarcastically. "Consumers should know that they're buying from farms that are using technology to make agriculture more efficient and more sustainable".

    Microalgal Biostimulants and Biofertilisers in Crop Productions

    Authors: Domenico Ronga, Elisa Biazzi, Katia Parati, Domenico Carminati, Elio Carminati and Aldo Tava

    Journal Title: Agronomy

    ISSN: 2073-4395 (Online)

    Publisher: MDPI AG

    Microalgae are attracting the interest of agrochemical industries and farmers, due to their biostimulant and biofertiliser properties. Microalgal biostimulants (MBS) and biofertilisers (MBF) might be used in crop production to increase agricultural sustainability. Biostimulants are products derived from organic material that, applied in small quantities, are able to stimulate the growth and development of several crops under both optimal and stressful conditions. Biofertilisers are products containing living microorganisms or natural substances that are able to improve chemical and biological soil properties, stimulating plant growth, and restoring soil fertility. This review is aimed at reporting developments in the processing of MBS and MBF, summarising the biologically-active compounds, and examining the researches supporting the use of MBS and MBF for managing productivity and abiotic stresses in crop productions. Microalgae are used in agriculture in different applications, such as amendment, foliar application, and seed priming. MBS and MBF might be applied as an alternative technique, or used in conjunction with synthetic fertilisers, crop protection products and plant growth regulators, generating multiple benefits, such as enhanced rooting, higher crop yields and quality and tolerance to drought and salt. Worldwide, MBS and MBF remain largely unexploited, such that this study highlights some of the current researches and future development priorities.
