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

    By Gregory Heilers

    Satellite technology provides a broader view of agricultureTo assess the current state of affairs across the globe, I solicited the expert advice from one of the preeminent farmers in the United States, Joel Salatin, co-owner of Polyface Farm, and John Fargher, co-founder and COO of Australia-based cutting-edge farm management software, AgriWebb...

    What Farmers Need to Know About Mycorrhizae

    By Laura Barrera

    Published Nov 2, 2018

    If someone asked you, “How do plants take up the water and nutrients they need?” you’d probably tell them through the roots. But did you know that for many crops, those roots aren’t working alone?That’s because most plant species associate with mycorrhizal fungi. What is mycorrhizal fungi? University of Alberta biological scientist JC Cahill says that mycorrhizas are actually the interaction between a fungus and a plant. 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... Alice Roy-Bolduc and Mohamed Hijri, authors of the article “The Use of Mycorrhizae to Enhance Phosphorus Uptake: A Way Out The Phosphorus Crisis,” say that in addition to the larger surface area, phosphorus is also highly immobile and phosphate ions become rapidly bound with cations, making it unavailable to plants...

    How to Create a Low-Input, High-Revenue System with Wide-Row Intercropping

    By Laura Barrera

    Published Dec 9, 2019

    In Gaston, Ind. , Jason Mauck is farming a little differently from his neighbors. Unlike the typical corn-and-soybean monocropping system, for the last 5 years Mauck has been doing low population, wide-row relay intercropping. So far he has seen success with soybeans into wheat, but he’s also working on corn intercropped with a legume... Mauck’s plan for the future is to do twin-row corn on 60-inch spacings, and start cohabitating his own nutrition and weed control in between the rows with legumes for nitrogen production...

    Should You Rotate Your Cover Crops? 4 Issues to Consider

    By Laura Barrera

    Published Jun 15, 2018

    You probably know that having a crop rotation is a good thing. Growing different crops back to back provides several benefits, such as preventing pests and disease, improving soil health and reducing fertilizer inputs, all of which can boost your crop yields and your bottom line. By adding cover crops to the mix, you’re diversifying your rotation even more. But have you thought about rotating your cover crops? Should you be using the same cover crop species back to back, year after year?Dave Robison, who runs the blog PlantCoverCrops...

    5 reasons to choose chitosan oligosaccharide in organic agriculture

    By Darren Chan

    Published Jan 22, 2019

    In the application of agricultural production, chitosan oligosaccharides not only make crops grow better and robust, but also has obvious effects in stress resistance and pest resistance. Numerous studies have shown that chitosan oligosaccharides can induce broad-spectrum resistance, enhance the plant’s own defense ability, inhibit the growth of a variety of plant pathogenic microorganisms, and it is non-toxic and can be microbial degradation, and will not pollute the environment. This makes it an important role in agricultural production as a new type of green production. 1...

    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... According to Ohio State University Extension, the drill will scratch the surface of the frozen ground to provide good seed-to-soil contact, and as the soil thaws, the seed trench will close up...

    Starting from Scratch - How Beginning Farmers can Break Ground

    By Gregory Heilers

    Published Sep 9, 2018

    Despite the fact that there is near-guaranteed job security, thanks to booming population growth, many beginning farmers face seemingly insurmountable obstacles to bringing a product to market. In this article, we’re going to cover how young farmers can start from the ground up, even if they don’t come from a family of farmers. Informing this subject is Jason Silverman, the Massachusetts Field Agent of Land For Good, and Joel Salatin, co-owner of Polyface Farm. Jason’s experience as a first generation farmer, and as an agent connecting farmers with resources, balances well with Joel’s, who took over the family farm, and has since mentored scores of intern cohorts. Starting Out with No Agricultural BackgroundOne of the dangers of starting out without either extensive experience or a strong support network is the potential for failure...
