  • Paclobutrazol--do you know the smart plant growth regulator for flowers and fruits?

    By Sophia Cheng

    Updated Jun 8 

    Paclobutrazol is triazole plant growth regulator which can inhibit the synthsis of gibberellins. It can significantly reduce apica dominance and promote tillering, shorten the internodes, increase the content of chlorophyll,protrin and nucleicacid;paclobutrazol can control vigorous growth, prevent lodging, control shoots and promote flower... THE EFFECTS OF PACLOBUTRAZOLOne method to manipulate flowering is to use the plant growth regulator, paclobutrazol. The post- harvest application of a small amount of paclobutrazol to the soil significantly promotes flowering and fruiting in the following year... How does paclobutrazol act?Available evidence strongly suggests that flower initiation depends on the presence of an unknown flower-promoting factor or factors synthesised in the leaves...

    Variable-Rating Fertilizer: Does It Pay Off?

    By Laura Barrera

    Updated May 12, 2020 

    51 “Over several thousand acres, the savings are substantial and help pay for precision agriculture upgrades,” the authors say... DeLay explains that research has shown that for variable-rate to pay off, there needs to be a sufficient amount of variation on the farm... For example, if your county corn yield average is 190 bushels and you have parts of your fields that are significantly above or below that, it would be good to investigate whether VRT for fertilizer application is a good investment... “This implies a proportional increase in overhead expenditures associated with variable-rate that keeps the percent increase in net returns the same as the percent impact on operating profit,” the report states... “It could be a little of ‘Because we’ve invested and tied money into this, we naturally want it to pay off,’ but it could also be that it’s generating a return for the producer,” he says...

    Trichoderma harzianum effects on control soil pathogens

    By Darren Chan

    Published Mar 25, 2019 

    Here we would like to introduce trichoderma‘s effect on control soil pathogens. Trichoderma grows on the surface of roots, where it provides disease control and enhances root growth. Its spores survive in the soil, but the food it lives on is mostly secreted from the root surface. Since the fungus multiplies on its own, it is different from seed-applied fungicides... The process is called mycoparasitism...

    Impact of Final Opportunity Zone Regulations on Farmers & Agribusinesses

    By Tyler Davis

    Published Jan 8, 2020 

    While we will discuss these in detail, taxpayers must first have a solid understanding of the basic Opportunity Zone rules and benefits. The Opportunity Zone initiative was enacted as part of the Tax Cuts & Jobs Act of 2017. Initially passed on December 22, 2017, the rules for this program are found in Internal Revenue Code Section 1400Z. These rules provide multiple tax benefits and incentives to taxpayers who invest in businesses or properties that are located within designated Opportunity Zones... To qualify for the tax benefits, a taxpayer must substantially improve the property or business in which they acquire, unless the property is original use property meaning it has never been previously depreciated by a different owner...

    USDA Adopts Market Transparency Policies Backed by NCBA

    By North American Ag

    Published Aug 6, 2021 

    Department of Agriculture-Agricultural Marketing Service (USDA-AMS) announced today that it will begin publishing a National Daily Direct Formula Base Cattle report, which will provide greater information into the foundational prices used in cattle market formulas, grids, and contracts, and a National Weekly Cattle Net Price Distribution report, which will show the volume of cattle purchased at each different level of pricing within those formulas, grids, and contracts. NCBA has long urged USDA to adopt policies that increase transparency in the cattle markets and applauds this effort to provide producers greater insight into cattle transactions. “USDA’s announcement is a significant step toward increasing transparency in the cattle markets,” said NCBA Vice President of Government Affairs Ethan Lane... NCBA remains committed to maximizing market transparency and looks forward to building on this momentum to shed more light on the fed cattle trade... The addition of these new publications will allow producers to better compare their marketing arrangement to others and allow them to make more informed business decisions on their operations...

    Comparison between pivot and drip irrigation in corn cultivation

    By Miriam Pitzalis

    Updated Aug 19, 2020 

    The main problem concerning corn cultivation is water stress: the most critical phases that suffer from water shortages, which can lead to significant production losses, are from the emission of the plume to flowering and the ripening stage. In order to obtain high yields, it is necessary to satisfy the evapotranspiration demand of the crop, which is between 0. 16 and 0. 22 inches/yard per day... Pivot vs Drip irrigation: economic comparisonsIn a study conducted by the University of Turin, the costs and efficiency of the two systems were analyzed...

    Have the challenges of farming changed?

    By Ray Bohacz

    Updated Nov 23, 2021 

    Have the challenges of farming truly changed much over the decades or have our expectations changed? Has the affluence of our nation since WWII impacted our perception of agriculture when compared to 70 years ago? Do we need/want more now to feel that we are successful? As we approach the Thanksgiving holiday, I am sincerely interested in your thoughts on these questions. Thank you and please write as long a response as you deem necessary.

    Palm Oil Production can be Expand in a Sustainable way

    Land used for palm oil production could be nearly doubled without expanding into protected or high-biodiversity forests, according to a new study published in the journal Global Environmental Change. The study is the first to map land suitable for palm oil production on a global scale, while taking into account environmental and climate considerations.

    “There is room to expand palm oil production and to do it in a sustainable way,” says IIASA researcher Johannes Pirker, who led the study.

    Palm oil production has expanded massively, from 6 million hectares in 1990 to 16 million in 2010, an area about the size of Uruguay. The oil, which is used for cooking and as a food additive, now accounts for about 30% of all vegetable oil used worldwide. Palm oil is controversial, in particular because much of this expansion came at the expense of biodiversity-rich tropical forests, which were cut to make room for new plantations. But oil palm farming has also contributed to lifting millions of people out of poverty in Indonesia and Malaysia, the top palm oil producing countries. And an important share of palm oil producers are small-holder farmers who rely on the commodity as their primary income.
