    Ten Ways to Increase Your Farm's Profits This Year

    By AgFuse Exclusive Content

    Updated Dec 30, 2019  

    For example, if you grow legumes or peanuts, you may want to ​shy away from using a multi-species legume cover mix in those fields​... On our farm, peanuts are the most profitable crop... Since peanuts can only be grown in a field once every four years, we know that we need at least 3,200 acres to maximize this scale... Cotton is a great crop to grow in combination with peanuts... So, that means that we will plan to have 1,600 acres of cotton and 800 acres of corn to go with the 800 acres of peanuts...

    Times Are Tough but Don't Cut This One Input

    By Fertility And Soils

    Published Jan 10, 2019  

    This is an unquestionably tough time to be a farmer. A trade war has beaten down already marginal prices, inputs have risen more than anyone could have predicted and many of us have experienced a so-called thousand-year weather event--not only once but twice in the last four years. You hear the same advice all around during times like this: “The farmers who will survive and thrive during tough times are low-cost producers. ” For the most part, this is very good advice... This is critical for nitrogen fixation for crops like peanuts and soybeans...

    On the Offensive with Cover Crops

    By Pat Rogers

    Published Jan 24, 2018  

    In the past few years, we have made a concerted effort to increase the usage of cover crops and other conservation practices on our farm. I have learned a lot of lessons from this experience but one stands out above the rest. Being a good steward of the environment and aiming to produce high yields don’t have to be mutually exclusive. In fact, I would argue that if intensively managed, conservation practices should significantly enhance yields... For example, you do not want to plant legumes immediately prior to or behind a leguminous cash crop such as peanuts and soybeans because it could lead to disease issues...

    Why Hemp Isn’t Going to Save the US Farmer (But How It Could)

    By The Crossover

    Published Aug 16, 2019  

    In late 2018, a new farm bill was passed that legalized the production of hemp as an agricultural commodity while also removing it from the list of “controlled substances”. The Gold Rush of the modern farming era was on... In the mid-2000s, peanuts and switchgrass were new crops introduced to South Carolina (peanuts used to operate under a government quota/allotment program).

    Rick Husk Furnace

    By SUNCUE Grain Dryer

    Published Oct 29, 2019  

    SUNCUE Rice Husk Furnace: From Fossil Fuel Agriculture to Ecological Cycle AgricultureIn order to pursue high production, fossil fuel is used in large quantities in modern agricultural activities. The large-scale use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides requires oil as raw materials; agricultural machinery also uses diesel and natural gas for production activities. This is fossil fuel agriculture. Excessive use of pesticides and chemical fertilizers will accumulate in the soil, pollute the soil, water, air, and pollute the ecological environment...
