    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... Frost-seeding, which is typically done into pastures, uses the soil’s freeze-thaw cycle to get other plant species established... Consider Spring ManagementIf a cover crop was established late, Dillard says it’s likely not going to affect your termination plans — in fact, it might make them easier...

    20 Years Later: What Roundup Ready Crops Taught Us About Weed Management

    Fertilizer management to improve yields

    By Miriam Pitzalis

    Updated Aug 20, 2020 

    Grain yield is strongly influenced by various factors, such as soil characteristics, irrigation, genetics, climate, cultivation techniques, and use of fertilizers. Fertilizers contribute incisively to the final production. To develop optimal fertilizer recommendations, it is necessary to determine the status of plant-available nutrients. The right fertilizer doses avoid incurring saline stress or nutritional deficiencies that lead to yield losses... 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...

    From Industrial Pesticides to Integrated Pest Management: A New Trend in Vineyard Practices

    By Thomas Grandperrin

    Updated Dec 14, 2020 

    This article was initially published on The Wine Industry Advisor as part of a series on biological control and Integrated Pest Management written by UAV-IQ Precision Agriculture... The issue with those non-native species is that there are often no naturally occurring enemies capable of controlling them and new Integrated Pest Management (IPM) protocols might take years to be developed, forcing growers to rely on broad-spectrum insecticides until more ecologically friendly alternatives are available... Kent has led several research projects on vine mealybugs and the development of ecologically-based insect pest management systems in vineyards and other perennial crops, such as almonds, pistachios, grapes, and stone fruit... ” Transitioning from a more conventional pest management program to a IPM program more oriented towards biocontrol takes some time and knowledge... While relying entirely on biocontrol and cultural practices to control pests can be more expensive in the short term, Kent confirms that it can be done in accordance with the principles of economic pest management decision making, and that augmentation releases can be easily budgeted into a pest management program...

    The Copernicus Masters - BayWa Smart Farming Challenge

    BayWa is looking for innovative solutions that use new technologies, ideas and products to support sustainable agriculture and horticulture.

    As the global population continues to grow every year, so too does the demand for agricultural products. To continue feeding the world without damaging the environment is one of the greatest challenges faced by society, and can only be achieved by increasing the efficiency and sustainability of agricultural production. BayWa invites submissions that look to tackle this challenge by combining satellite data with other data sources in an innovative and commercially viable way.

    BayWa is particularly interested in new ideas that combine satellite data and Artificial Intelligence/ Machine Learning. Furthermore,BayWa is looking for new ideas that support the following application fields:

    • Pasture Management

    • Early Crop Disease Identification in Agriculture and Horticulture

    • Yield Prediction in Horticulture

    Do you have a Smart Farming idea that doesn’t fit the above? BayWa encourages you to enter it as well!

    Application Deadline: June 30, 2020
