    When is it Too Late to Seed Cover Crops?

    By Laura Barrera

    Published Jan 29, 2019 

    If you’re a farmer, at some point you’ll likely experience a late harvest, whether it’s due to Mother Nature or an equipment problem. And if you plan on seeding your cover crops after your crops are off, you have the added challenge of trying to get them seeded in a timely manner. Depending on how late it gets, you may wonder whether it’s even worth seeding them at all. It leads to the question: Is it ever too late to seed cover crops?The short answer: It depends... In fact, Ebersole says these species can survive longer when they’re planted late in far northern regions because the more growth they have, the more susceptible they are to cold weather...

    New Agriculture in Kedah: A Move Towards MD2 Pineapple

    By Jenny Hoo

    Published Sep 30, 2019 

    Kedah is a state in northern Malaysia and is well known for its agriculture industry, especially in paddy planting. In Malaysia, according to 2016 statistics, about 700,000 hectare land is provided for paddy planting and average annual growth is projected at 0. 03 percent[1]. Compared to other south east Asian countries, Malaysia is positioned as the net rice importer and least rice production compared to Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam and the Philippines. Malaysia imported 33 percent of their rice from Thailand, Vietnam and Pakistan while producing 67 percent of them locally, primarily in Kedah, Northern Perak and Selangor...

    4 Steps to Building Soil Organic Matter in the South

    By Laura Barrera

    Published Jul 18, 2018 

    As we learn more about what goes on in the world beneath our feet, increased attention has been placed on soil organic matter. And for good reason. While it only makes up a small percentage of most soils, the Sustainable Agriculture Research & Education (SARE) says it’s the “very foundation for healthy and productive soils” — and the more organic matter there is, the better the results. Consider the following findings from SARE and the NRCS:A study of soils in Michigan demonstrated potential crop-yield increases of about 12% for every 1% organic matter...

    A New Era of Farm Employees: Farm Technicians vs. Farm Hands?

    By Gregory Heilers

    Published Jun 4, 2018 

    Traditional agricultural skills that made civilization possible are still alive and in use today. At the same time, hundreds of farm technician job listings across the US, and the rise of precision agriculture and software, clearly evidence the need for technologically-savvy farm technicians in the 21st century agricultural industry. It’s no surprise that tech-friendly millennials interested in farming are encouraged by these developments, which may make farming less labor intensive than in generations past. Technology may even be the antidote to a number of ills plaguing modern agriculture, which have led to a drastic decrease in the number of farms across the United States...

    Struggling with Soil Temperature During Planting? Cover Crops Can Help

    By Laura Barrera

    Updated Aug 17, 2020 

    You can pick the right seed, use the right equipment, apply the right inputs, and plant at the right depth, but without the right soil temperature, your crops are likely to struggle. One practice that can help fix that? Cover crops. Why Soil Temperature MattersWhile soil temperature has an impact on the soil and crop production throughout the growing season, the NRCS says it’s most critical at planting, when it drives seed germination and directly affects plant growth. “Most soil organisms function best at an optimum soil temperature,” says the USDA agency, adding that soil temperature influences soil moisture content, aeration, and the availability of plant nutrients... But for farmers in northern climates, the challenge may be that soils stay too cold and wet during the planting season...

    7 Ways to Measure Soil Health Improvements

    By Laura Barrera

    Published Mar 7, 2019 

    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... Stott notes that if you’re located in a northern area, you shouldn’t be too worried if you don’t see too many earthworms. “Understand that, especially in the northern states, earthworms are not indigenous,” she explains...

    We have had a crop of really useful farm innovations from across Great Britain and Ireland in the new issue of Practical Farm Ideas. This one will appeal to many with bales to move from the shed to the field for feeding. http://bit.ly/2wMKz8l  I'm always wanting ideas to harvest, and can't travel for them. Anyone with a contact or lead, or with something in their own yard... please email me  editor@farmideas.co.uk  so we can work out a way of including it in the next issue.

    #AgHistory
    A vast amount of agricultural history in the United States began outside of the United States. As you might expect, production agriculture for the Native Americans was very limited in scope and production(for many reasons). This being said, what is often overlooked in agricultural labor discussions here at home, is WHY men and women skilled in agriculture ventured to the New World in the first place, and why potential death and starvation looked more inviting to many than the situations left behind in their home countries. One book I highly recommend farm labor in general: Farm Labor in Germany, 1810-1945 by Dr. Frieda Wunderlich (1961). Dr. Wunderlich gives one example of a servant who was finally permitted to leave the farm and granted permission to migrate to Berlin. When asked to return to his previous lord of the land, he was then given permission to respond to his former “employer”: “...You and your sort are amazed that we run away. You gentlemen are responsible for it. We shall vote as the lord (landholder - where they migrated from) wants... read what the lord permits... keep our mouths shut about the suppression of the people... one has too much honor to allow one’s self to be treated like cattle.” It is important to understand that prior to the turn of the century in Germany, farm laborers were tied to the land and could never leave or change vocations without express permission of the ‘lord of the land’; neither could their children who were often born into this class. Even after migration to more urban dense areas in search of a better life, conditions were still identified as ‘miserable’ (but apparently better than where they came from). It is not hard to imagine industrious peoples choosing the unknown in the American, where they had control over their lives regardless of risk. From 1871 - 1900, 2.7 million Germans (predominantly rural “land folk”), emigrated to the United States. Dr. Wunderlich later identifies that ‘peasant’ children and farm workers were the most mobile of the rural population. An example of the life they chose (though from an earlier period) can be found in: History of Agriculture in the Northern United States, 1620-1860 first published 1925 and later updated in 1941. In one example, the months of May-July were particularly difficult resulting in near starvation, as no harvest had yet occurred. It would typically be corn planted by hand around trees or tree stumps (it could take 1 year to clear 1-3 acres). In one case, the nearest mill was 40 miles away and settlers would walk that on foot with a basket of corn on their backs. They may also use a samp mortar with a spring pole, and pound tolerable corn meal (one man per bushel/per day)... Our agriculture is founded in freedom over servitude. Samp mortars were stumps that had a bowl carved into them. A hardwood stump would be tied to a sapling and driven down into the bowl with corn, with the sapling aiding in raisin...

    As we hear of many initiatives indicating a need for more, smaller farms (in fact the very type I own myself), I thought this may be of interest for other small vegetable or fruit farmers: https://extension.umaine.edu/maine-farmer-resource-network/2021-maine-farm-worker-compensation-survey/. You will see in the photo that most of the farm respondents to this graduate survey were from Southern Maine. This is due primarily to logistics - Look at a map of the state and you will see how difficult it would be for a farmer in northern Maine to sell produce outside of his or her local economy. Especially so if the majority of folks in these rural communities also grow their own gardens to supplement their income. Additionally, the climates and topography can vary greatly across the state (I.e., Downeast has a significant amount of ledge and shallow, acidic soil profiles - hence wild blueberries reign there). What wasn't mentioned in the survey, but is a topic of significant discussion over coffee amongst farmers - insurance requirements for hourly employees that operate heavy equipment and tractors. Most of the small farmers I knew there performed these tasks themselves. I would love to see this type of data from other states. Hope this is informative for others especially the logistics. I ran into many new farmers that didn't realize that a great buy on land in a remote region may not be as profitable as a much smaller parcel closer to logistics nodes, especially if there isn't a second source of income for the farm
