    4 Steps to Building Soil Organic Matter in the South

    By Laura Barrera

    Published 11 months ago

    “It’s going to eat anything that is carbon based and basically turn it into carbon dioxide, thereby reducing soil carbon, and by definition, soil organic matter. So anything dead it’s going to decompose pretty rapidly and turn into CO2... In addition to organic matter increasing, Kloot discovered that nutrient levels and pH on the five farmers’ soils were quite stable — remaining practically unchanged, despite being in full production and not having any commercial fertilizer applied, except for nitrogen to grass crops, which Kloot says was typically applied at lower rates... 5% without any manure, while another working in a loamy sand soil saw his levels increase from 1% to 1... Kloot says that while species like grass crops tend to bring more carbon into the soil because they have more biomass, continuously growing grasses without any additional diversity will cause productivity in the soil to go down...

    Early Cover Crop Benefits: What Can You Expect in the First Year?

    By Laura Barrera

    Published 1 years, 1 month ago

    In 1995, Pennsylvania farmer Steve Groff was speaking at an event when he asked the audience the question: Do cover crops pay off?His thinking at the time was that he had been no-tilling since 1982, and maybe if he no-tilled long enough, he wouldn’t need them... While covers can help any soil, Groff, who now runs a cover crop consulting business, says that cover crops seem to help a poorer soil quicker... “If they’re in no-till and they don’t have any significant erosion problems, then they may not notice that kind of benefit... “I know some of our weed scientists at Purdue get very concerned with people saying ‘You’ve got cover crops, you don’t need any kind of herbicide or weed control, that’s all you need,’” she says... Anyone starting out with cover crops should find a mentor, and that doesn’t necessarily have to be a personal relationship, Groff says...

    What Farmers Need to Know About Mycorrhizae

    By Laura Barrera

    Published 8 months ago

    But did you know that for many crops, those roots aren’t working alone?That’s because most plant species associate with mycorrhizal fungi... 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... 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... 26,” explains that while root hairs can only extend a few millimeters, the hyphae of some AMF can extend many centimeters away... When Mycorrhizae Becomes ParasiticWhile AMF can provide many benefits for plants, Cahill says that in some situations the relationship can be parasitic...

    What’s the function of Mycorrhiza?

    By Darren Chan

    Published 6 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. To improve the current soil ecosystem with serious damage and improve soil fertility, it is imperative to supplement soil beneficial microorganisms... Around the roots of the plants, there are many free myceliums, which we call externalhyphae... Enhance plant disease resistanceMany studies have shown that some ectomycorrhizal fungi have obvious “antagonistic” effects on certain plant pathogenic bacteria... In addition, many studies have also shown that mycorrhiza can also improve other stress resistance of plants, such as drought resistance, cold resistance, salt and alkali resistance, and heavy metal pollution...
