    cover cropping with triticale ,hairy vetch and cow peas late fall?

    By Brady Shortell

    Published Oct 18, 2020 

    Looking at planting triticale with hairy vetch and cow peas for a cover crop next year for a cash crop or corn to be planted late May 2021 using a roller crimper to terminate the cover crop before plant. It’s October 18th, I won’t be able to plant until the 22nd. Night time temps have fluctuated from mid 30s to high 20s no consistency yet. Some nights stay closer to 40. Highs are in the 70s and 80s. Am I too late for any of my covers? Any suggestions on planting rates? Will triticale terminate properly if I follow the method used for Rye, waiting until the entire field is dropping pollen?

    "An automated peanut digger developed by Clemson University agricultural engineers could save growers $19 per acre or more by reducing yield losses due to inaccurate digging depths, research shows. The technology utilizes depth gauges that are used to automate the digger’s hydraulic top link that controls blade depth. Doing so maintains a steady digging depth throughout a field regardless of soil texture or moisture, a unique and important feature for the variable clay and sandy soils in the Southeast."

    PRIMA Call for Proposals: Farming Systems 2019 - Sustainability and competitiveness of Mediterranean greenhouse and intensive Horticulture

    In the Mediterranean area, the intensive cultivation of horticulture products, such as tomato, pepper and lettuce, can take advantage of favourable environmental conditions for organisational and technological development to result in higher productive efficiency. Technology innovations should include greenhouse climate control, sensors and robotics tools and agronomical practices to improve the efficient use of resources, ultimately fulfilling a circular recovery approach, and also providing environmentally friendly and ecological control of pest and pathogens for production of safe food. Furthermore, special attention must be paid to controlling nutrient leakages to the receiving surface, sub-surface and groundwaters with the purpose to fight growing eutrophication trends.

    New soilless systems (including freshwater aquaponics) should be also incorporated and tested in order to facilitate the adoption of efficient fertigation strategies, particularly under conditions of water scarcity and low water quality while ensuring nutrient balance strict and smart control systems to fight eutrophication. Successful technological implementation rests on the effective use by single users or consortia in tight connection with processing industries. This should include integrating sensors data and algorithms into decision support systems. Proposals should then properly analyse the grower’s needs and offer solutions that will be successfully exploited. A socio-economic study is also advocated to demonstrate economic feasibility while preserving and protecting receiving environmental systems (water and soil) of the proposed measures and proper education and training of growers through specific capacity building activities, and to help promoting a new generation of entrepreneurs, less conservative and more aware of the state-of-the art practices. The greenhouse technology providers, mainly SMEs, constitute an important source of employment for the agri-business. The proposals should aim to better connect private companies and public research, facilitating the exchange of know-how from research centres and academy to the private sector and vice versa.

    The proposed innovative technologies should be tested in small-scale research and demonstration studies, taking in consideration sustainability of technologies related to intensive horticulture, as well as environmental protection (not to increase eutrophication) social aspects, including labour conditions with particular reference to gender issue. The demonstration sites should consider a wide range of environmental conditions and should also ensure that ensuring no adverse impact to degradation of surface and groundwater water quality of receiving waters and ensuring quality of soil is maintained.

    NEXUS: Integrated Sustainable Energy for Enhancing Farm Productivity

    Authors: O-Y Yu1, J Ferrell1, H-Y Kim and J Houser

    Published under licence by IOP Publishing Ltd
    IOP Conference Series: Earth and Environmental Science, Volume 188, conference 1

    The NEXUS at Appalachian State University, NC, USA is a multidisciplinary team of faculty and students housed in the Department of Sustainable Technology and the Built Environment whose research lies at the intersection of agriculture, energy, and natural resources. NEXUS is developing inexpensive and efficient sustainable energy greenhouse heating technologies that provide affordable and sustainable means to improve the food-growing capacities and the standard of living for farmer communities in rural Appalachia while reducing the use of fossil fuels. This is done by using on-farm biomass resources/wastes such as agricultural waste and wood chips to produce energy. Growing season extension with heated greenhouses increases the availability of local food throughout the year, expands available markets and increases farmers' profits. The 7 m by 10 m greenhouse (conventional hoop) includes an above ground 5,700-liter water storage tank and an aquaculture pond. It is supported by a small-scale pyrolysis system, an anaerobic digestion system, solar thermal, and compost heating. The heat from various heating methods is delivered and stored in the water storage tank inside the greenhouse. An Arduino module controls the flow rate of water from the tank to various heat exchangers based on temperature differentials. A closed loop heat exchanger circulates heated water from the tank to the aquaculture pond to maintain an optimal temperature for tilapia growth. The pond also acts as a thermal storage, and holds/distributes heat to the greenhouse. The main purpose of this study is to test the integrated sustainable energy heating system for growing season extension with less energy cost. Our preliminary result shows that compared to a conventional space heating system, about 30% of energy was saved to keep the greenhouse temperature available for growing by radiation from the water storage tank.

    Aerial Mapping of Forests Affected by Pathogens Using UAVs, Hyperspectral Sensors, and Artificial Intelligence

    Authors: Juan Sandino, Geoff Pegg, Felipe Gonzalez and Grant Smith

    Journal: Sensors 2018, 18(4), 944;

    Publisher: MDPI

    The environmental and economic impacts of exotic fungal species on natural and plantation forests have been historically catastrophic. Recorded surveillance and control actions are challenging because they are costly, time-consuming, and hazardous in remote areas. Prolonged periods of testing and observation of site-based tests have limitations in verifying the rapid proliferation of exotic pathogens and deterioration rates in hosts. Recent remote sensing approaches have offered fast, broad-scale, and affordable surveys as well as additional indicators that can complement on-ground tests. This paper proposes a framework that consolidates site-based insights and remote sensing capabilities to detect and segment deteriorations by fungal pathogens in natural and plantation forests. This approach is illustrated with an experimentation case of myrtle rust (Austropuccinia psidii) on paperbark tea trees (Melaleuca quinquenervia) in New South Wales (NSW), Australia. The method integrates unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), hyperspectral image sensors, and data processing algorithms using machine learning. Imagery is acquired using a Headwall Nano-Hyperspec ® camera, orthorectified in Headwall SpectralView ® , and processed in Python programming language using eXtreme Gradient Boosting (XGBoost), Geospatial Data Abstraction Library (GDAL), and Scikit-learn third-party libraries. In total, 11,385 samples were extracted and labelled into five classes: two classes for deterioration status and three classes for background objects. Insights reveal individual detection rates of 95% for healthy trees, 97% for deteriorated trees, and a global multiclass detection rate of 97%. The methodology is versatile to be applied to additional datasets taken with different image sensors, and the processing of large datasets with freeware tools.

    In Field Fruit Sizing Using A Smart Phone Application

    Authors: Zhenglin Wang, Anand Koirala, Kerry Walsh, Nicholas Anderson and Brijesh Verma

    Journal: Sensors 2018, 18(10), 3331

    Publisher: MDPI

    In field (on tree) fruit sizing has value in assessing crop health and for yield estimation. As the mobile phone is a sensor and communication rich device carried by almost all farm staff, an Android application (“FruitSize”) was developed for measurement of fruit size in field using the phone camera, with a typical assessment rate of 240 fruit per hour achieved. The application was based on imaging of fruit against a backboard with a scale using a mobile phone, with operational limits set on camera to object plane angle and camera to object distance. Image processing and object segmentation techniques available in the OpenCV library were used to segment the fruit from background in images to obtain fruit sizes. Phone camera parameters were accessed to allow calculation of fruit size, with camera to fruit perimeter distance obtained from fruit allometric relationships between fruit thickness and width. Phone geolocation data was also accessed, allowing for mapping fruits of data. Under controlled lighting, RMSEs of 3.4, 3.8, 2.4, and 2.0 mm were achieved in estimation of avocado, mandarin, navel orange, and apple fruit diameter, respectively. For mango fruit, RMSEs of 5.3 and 3.7 mm were achieved on length and width, benchmarked to manual caliper measurements, under controlled lighting, and RMSEs of 5.5 and 4.6 mm were obtained in-field under ambient lighting.

    Minnesota can be a model for other states in the fight against invasives weeds. That's the message of a newly published article highlighting the successful work against Palmer amaranth in Minnesota. The article "Timeline of Palmer amaranth (Amaranthus palmeri) invasion and eradication in Minnesota" is being included in Weed Technology, a publication of the Weed Science Society of America.
    Palmer amaranth is listed as a noxious weed in Minnesota and was first discovered in the state in 2016.
    Left uncontrolled, a single female Palmer amaranth plant typically produces 100,000 to 500,000 seeds. It is resistant to multiple herbicides, can cause substantial yield losses, and greatly increase weed management costs in soybeans and corn.
    The article highlights the work of the Minnesota Department of Agriculture, University of Minnesota Extension, farmers, and other partners to identify the weed in fields, determine how it got to Minnesota, and implement strategies to eliminate infestations. To date, Palmer amaranth has been found in nine counties around the state; however, most of the sites have been successfully eradicated and the remaining are being closely monitored. Details of previous finds can be found on the MDA website.
    "Although our work with Palmer amaranth is far from completed, what we have accomplished has been critical to protecting Minnesota's ag economy from this serious threat," said Minnesota Agriculture Commissioner Thom Petersen. "We believe this collaborative effort to fighting invasives can work in many settings."
    "Education has played a key role in limiting the spread of this weed. We're committed to research and continuing our work with farmers and other partners across the state to protect crops from the threat of invasive species," said Extension Dean Bev Durgan, who is also a weed scientist.
    There are several keys to successful eradication of the invasive weed according to the article. First, a robust state noxious weed program, like the MDA's, is critical, and it needs appropriate funding and an independent advisory committee. Second, support is needed from the legislative and executive branches and commodity groups and farmers. Finally, continued success is more likely if surrounding states are collaborating on eradication.
    Along with its designation as a noxious weed, which requires all above and below ground parts of the Palmer amaranth plant destroyed and not moved, it is also listed as a prohibited weed seed in the state. This means seeds of the weed are not allowed in any seed offered for sale in Minnesota.

     IT IS TIME TO GO ORGANIC

    Background and Objective: The poultry industry is greatly impeded by coccidiosis and these parasites have developed resistant strains to most of the synthetic treatments applied. This study was conducted to evaluate the efficacy of aqueous leaf extracts of Carica papaya (C. papaya) and Aloe vera (A. vera) on parasitological and haematological parameters as well as growth performance of Eimeria-infected Kabir chickens. Materials and Methods: Fresh leaves were harvested and dried in gentle heat. Ground and sieved powder of fresh leaves was used to prepare the aqueous extracts. Chickens were infected with 3200 Eimeria oocysts until they began shedding oocysts in their faeces. The aqueous extracts were orally administered at doses of 0.32, 0.80 and 1.44 g--1 chicken--1. There were 3 experimental groups per extract made up of T1-T3 and two control chambers (T4, T5). Chickens of T4 were infected but not treated while T5 was the neutral group. Results: The best anticoccidial effect was observed in the T3 group which was treated with A. vera extract at a concentration of 1.44 g chicken--1 day--1. Both extracts (C. papaya and A. vera) had similar effects on growth performance with non-significant differences. Though both extracts of C. papaya and A. vera had significant effect on haematological parameters like red blood cell (RBC) and white blood cell (WBC) counts as well as haemoglobin (Hb) values, the differences were however not significant. Both extracts significantly reduced the burdens of emeriosis in chickens. Conclusion: C. papaya and A. vera aqueous extracts had good anticoccidial properties and significantly reduced the oocyst counts and improved the RBC and WBC values in the chickens.
