    Updated Aug 20, 2020 

    To develop optimal fertilizer recommendations, it is necessary to determine the status of plant-available nutrients... What elements should growers consider besides the results of a soil test?The chemical-physical analysis of the soil is only a starting point to accurately establish the nutrient requirements of plant growth... Also, regarding P and K, the fertilizer inputs vary according to the potential yield and soil nutrients content... Tips on nutrient management planning to maximize yieldOnce the nutrient requirement has been defined, it is essential to study the rates and timing of fertilizer applications.

    How to Time Cover Crop Termination and Get an Effective Burndown

    By Laura Barrera

    Published Jul 1, 2019 

    While soybeans perform well when planted green, corn requires finer attention to management, says Reed, who was part of a team of Penn State researchers who studied planting green on five locations across Pennsylvania over three years... Penn State Weed Management Extension Specialist John Wallace adds that he doesn't know any growers planting green into annual ryegrass because allowing it to get too big will make it more difficult to control... Best Management Practices for Planting GreenIf you’re forced to plant green because weather conditions didn’t allow you to terminate your cover crop in time, there are some best management strategies you should try to follow...

    Are Nitrogen Stabilizers Worth Using? 3 Factors to Consider

    By Laura Barrera

    Updated May 26, 2020 

    When it comes to fertility in crop production, nitrogen is one of the most critical nutrients involved. “Nitrogen plays an important part in many essential functions and compounds necessary for life,” says the University of Missouri Extension and can be found in various parts of plants. Unfortunately, nitrogen fertilizer is susceptible to leaving the soil before it can be used up by the plant... While these products can help protect your nitrogen from loss, are they worth using on your farm? More importantly, will they pay off?Consider Soil TextureUniversity of Nebraska Extension Soil and Nutrient Management Specialist Charles Wortmann says that like most practices in agriculture, you can’t expect universal benefits from use of nitrogen stabilizers, but it can be very beneficial if it’s well targeted to certain situations... However, Wortmann warns that while the study was good in testing the effectiveness of slow-release products, it’s not the type of nitrogen management farmers should be following for an irrigated sandy loam...

    How Cover Crops Affect Your Fertilizer Strategy

    By Laura Barrera

    Published Jun 29, 2018 

    When it comes to cover crops and nutrient management, a lot of the focus is on what cover crops can do for soil fertility. Depending on the species being used, they can prevent leftover nutrients from running off into waterways or even produce some fertilizer for future crop use... This means it’ll take longer to break down and allow for nutrient release than vegetation at earlier stages of development... “Nitrogen is an essential food source for the biology that breaks down cover crop biomass and other crop residue, which in turn makes those nutrients available for uptake in this season’s crop,” Pike says... Additional nitrogen applications should also be placed near crop roots to ensure the crop has quick access to the nutrient...

    Everyday agriculture using Artificial Intelligence: Benefits for the soybean industry

    By SHARATH CHANDRAN U.S

    Updated Aug 9, 2020 

    Soil is the storehouse for nutrients that are essential to the plants. As farming progressed, new crop varieties were introduced that responded better to nutrient dosing through chemical fertilizers... This leads to a huge loss of nutrients since what's left after plant absorption would normally go wasted. Now, AI is helping in crop nutrient management through remote-sensing and robotics. Robots are being developed that are capable of local application of fertilizers after locating plants that are in real need of the specific nutrient...

    6 Steps to a Successful On-Farm Research Trial

    By Laura Barrera

    Updated Mar 1 

    If you want to make smart, well-informed decisions on your operation, you need relevant, high-quality data to support those decisions, says Tim Laatsch. A great way to achieve this? On-farm research. An Illinois-based farmer, Laatsch knows first-hand the importance of on-farm research... ”The key is to keep it simple and only focus on one management change at a time, as one of the initial mistakes farmers make with on-farm research is trying to answer too many questions at once... Changes in plant nutrient concentration, plant growth rates, crop health, and grain yield, moisture or quality, are all examples of dependent variables...

    Cover Crop Corner: Part 2 Cover Crop Economics: Long-term gains through holistic improvements

    By Feed the Soil, Feed the World

    Published Oct 13 

    This falls into the zone that is crucial for root growth and movement necessary for maximal nutrient and water absorption. Compaction impacts the physical attributes of the soil by reducing the pore space necessary for air, water and nutrient movement... Natural nutrient cycling That soil organic carbon that everyone seems to be talking about is important because it is what feeds the microbial community that also provide the service of cycling mineral and organic nutrients, making them available to plants... As they do this, they cycle nutrients, turning soil organic matter into plant available nutrients... Many crops also form associations with mycorrhizal fungi which trade phosphorus, water, and likely other nutrients to the crop in exchange for these carbon compounds fixed by the plant through photosynthesis...

    Ten Ways to Increase Your Farm's Profits This Year

    By AgFuse Exclusive Content

    Updated Dec 30, 2019 

    There are a lot of savings to be had and you will ​improve your land​ if you apply the correct amount of nutrients... We want to make sure that there aren’t any limiting factors when we analyze our nutrient levels and seeding rates... We can try to improve the low and average productivity zones, transforming them into higher productivity zones by taking a long, thorough look at our nutrient levels. Sometimes, despite there being plenty of macro fertility on a zone, the limiting factor is that of a micronutrient or an abundance of some other nutrient... If we can identify those limiting factors, then we can determine if the cause is something that we can address immediately, such as being nutrient-related, or something that we will plan for in the future, such as being tiling-related...

    Do crops need more sulfur now than we have historically thought?

    By Anonymous Member

    Published Mar 20, 2020 

    Since most university nutrient recommendations were established prior to catalytic converters becoming commonplace, do you feel that sulfur fertilizer is needed in a greater amount than what is being suggested based on older recommendations?

    "Cover crops are often part of a suite of conservation practices that comprise a farmer’s soil health management system. Other conservation practices, such as no-till farming and a written nutrient management plan, are more common on fields with cover crops than on fields without cover crops."

    Soil and Crop Management Strategies to Ensure Higher Crop Productivity within Sustainable Environments

    Authors: Farooq Shah and Wei Wu

    Journal Title: Sustainability

    ISSN: 2071-1050 (Online)

    Publisher: MDPI AG

    The rising population and reduction in the amount of land and some other resources have created tremendous pressure on current agricultural producers to meet the increasing food demands. To cope with this challenge, certain key inputs, such as fertilizers and other chemicals, are overused, which are worsening the surroundings. This intensive agricultural production without adherence to ecological sustainability has led to declining soil health, land degradation, and severe environmental problems. So, future efforts to feed the growing population should aim for greater agricultural production within sustainable environments. In this regard, innovative steps are needed, as business-as-usual policies lack the potential to cope with these challenges. The concept of agricultural sustainability and various soil and crop management strategies (SCMS) that have been designed to optimize crop yield under sustainable environmental conditions are discussed, including nutrient management, site specific nutrient management (SSNM), integrated nutrient management (INM), integrated soil fertility management (ISFM), integrated soil-crop system management (ISSM), ridge-furrow mulching systems (RFMS), sustainable water management (SWM), conservation agriculture (CA), sustainable land management (SLM), vertical/sky farming, and integrated crop management, and breeding strategies as well as other approaches combined with technological and behavioural changes. The present review suggests that a sustainable production system can be developed by combining the multifaceted efforts under SCMS practices with short- and long-term preventive measures. Reducing chemicals’ usage, such as that of fertilizers and pesticides, plus improvements in the crop input use efficiency could minimize greenhouse gases emissions while protecting the environment. Sustainable agriculture holds promise for humankind and the planet Earth, and it can be successful if all developed and developing nations stand together to seek ‘our common future’ to produce more food while generating less environmental pressure.

    Nanotechnology monitors a leading agricultural controlling process, especially by its miniature dimension. Additionally, many potential benefits such as enhancement of food quality and safety, reduction of agricultural inputs, enrichment of absorbing nanoscale nutrients from the soil, etc. allow the application of nanotechnology to be resonant encumbrance. Agriculture, food, and natural resources are a part of those challenges like sustainability, susceptibility, human health, and healthy life. The ambition of nanomaterials in agriculture is to reduce the amount of spread chemicals, minimize nutrient losses in fertilization and increased yield through pest and nutrient management. Nanotechnology has the prospective to improve the agriculture and food industry with novel nanotools for the controlling of rapid disease diagnostic, enhancing the capacity of plants to absorb nutrients among others. The significant interests of using nanotechnology in agriculture includes specific applications like nanofertilizers and nanopesticides to trail products and nutrients levels to increase the productivity without decontamination of soils, waters, and protection against several insect pest and microbial diseases. Nanotechnology may act as sensors for monitoring soil quality of agricultural field and thus it maintain the health of agricultural plants. This review covers the current challenges of sustainability, food security and climate change that are exploring by the researchers in the area of nanotechnology in the improvement of agriculture.
