    By Gregory Heilers

    Published Jun 4, 2018

    Traditional agricultural skills that made civilization possible are still alive and in use today. At the same time, hundreds of farm technician job listings across the US, and the rise of precision agriculture and software, clearly evidence the need for technologically-savvy farm technicians in the 21st century agricultural industry... 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. Ecological Farming: the Science Behind Farming Isn’t ChangingIn Joel’s mind, while an individual farmer’s understanding of agriculture may change, the science behind soil health and fertility hasn’t and won’t... ”Compost is the same, but practices have changed on some farmsJoel’s advice for someone looking to educate themselves on ecological farming ranged from reading The Stockman Grass Farmer and ACRES USA to “spending time walking and thinking on your farm...

    By Laura Barrera

    Published Mar 23

    When you picture what’s happening below ground in your fields, you probably imagine a web of roots branching out to provide your crops support, nutrients and water... Roots are also secreting chemical compounds, known as root exudates, which play an important role in both crop production and soil health. Released primarily from the root hairs and cells immediately behind the penetrating root tip, says an Agronomy for Sustainable Development article, root exudates attract and sustain a variety of microorganisms, like arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi and nitrogen-cycling bacteria, in the rhizosphere, which is the zone of soil directly surrounding the roots. When explaining exudates, Paul Hallett uses a quote from the English agriculturist Jethro Tull’s book, Horse-Hoeing Husbandry: “Roots are but guts inverted…that spew out what is superfluous... ”In addition to benefiting the plant itself, root exudates can both affect the soil and be affected by it...

    By Laura Barrera

    Published Jul 1, 2019

    Even by June 2, “both corn and soybean planting were proceeding at a record slow pace... Penn State Extension Educator and Agronomist Heidi Reed says she saw several farmers in York County, Pa... In fact, some found planting green was better because the cover crops helped keep their fields drier, making it easier for them to drive on their fields and plant than if they would’ve killed the cover crop sooner...

    By Tyler Davis

    Published Aug 2, 2019
