  • Pencil Out Fungicide Profitability

    By Amanda Allworth

    Published 8 months ago

    Generally, these fields contain more fungal spore populations, thus increasing the likelihood of disease when conditions are favorable for infection... While this serves as a good reference, keep in mind that usually these ratings are based on visual observations and don’t take into account actual yield responses... For example, low-lying areas that hold moisture are more prone to disease and would be well-suited for a hybrid with more disease resistance... If the future forecast is hot and dry there’s a good chance disease progression will halt and a fungicide application may not be necessary. Know When to Pull the TriggerOnce you’ve surveyed your risk factors, it’s time to pencil out whether a fungicide application will be profitable...

    What’s the function of Mycorrhiza?

    By Darren Chan

    Published 2 months ago

    Introduction of MycorrhizaExcessive dependence on chemical fertilizers can result in the destruction of a large number of beneficial microbial communities in the soil and a decrease in soil activity... The symbiotic bacteria can grow together with the roots of some plants to form a special symbiont-exogenous mycorrhiza, which exchanges substances with each other through the mycorrhiza... According to preliminary statistics by Harley and Smith (1983), the species that can form ectomycorrhizal fungi include 43 families and 139 genera, mainly distributed in temperate and subtropical regions, followed by southern subtropical and tropical regions, while other regions are less... However, why is mycorrhiza important?What’s the function of Mycorrhiza?Expand the nutrient absorption surface of plantsThe roots of plants are important organs for plants to absorb water and other nutrients... Even in places where the roots of the plants cannot reach, there will be traces of epithelial hyphae, which greatly increases the absorption surface and absorption range of the roots of the plants, thus helping the plants absorb more water and other nutrients...

By looking closely at both sides of the case as well as the current political and legal climate in the state of North Carolina, only then can conclusions regarding the future ramifications of these verdicts can be made. A Little Background on the SubjectBecause we need farmers to produce the food we eat, in the past there have been protections for farmers against what are called nuisance lawsuits... These statutes, in most states are simple, broad guidelines, with the expressed purpose to discourage nuisance suits. For example, most RTFs state such things as a time limit in which possible suits may be brought and under what circumstances...
