  • How to Protect Corn Yields Following Cereal Rye

    By Laura Barrera

    Published 3 months ago

    If you’ve considered using cereal rye as a cover crop in front of corn, you’ve probably been warned that your yield would suffer... Research has shown that corn yields can take a hit after cereal rye, but it doesn’t happen every time... Pathogens at PlayOne of the reasons corn may suffer after cereal rye is if the rye is serving as a “green bridge,” where pathogens that were infecting the rye move onto the growing corn as the rye dies... In a 2018 Iowa Learning Farms (ILF) webinar, she explained that researchers first confirmed that rye can host several pathogens, including:Fusarium graminearum — which causes several diseases, including stalk rot and ear rot of corn, head scab of wheat, etc. Pythium sylvaticum — which causes corn and soybean seedling diseaseA field experiment funded by the Iowa Nutrient Research Center was conducted in 2014 and 2015 to determine whether the rye could serve as a green bridge in transferring those pathogens to corn...

    How Yield Champions Use Cover Crops for Growing Higher Bushels

    Published 1 years, 2 months ago

    There are many factors that can influence corn yield. In fact, Fred Below, a plant physiologist at the University of Illinois, identified seven of them, which he dubbed the “Seven Wonders of the Corn Yield World. ”The seven wonders, ranked in order of most influence on yield, are:WeatherNitrogenHybridPrevious cropPlant populationTillageGrowth regulatorsWhile Below was referring to the cash crop rotation in the fourth wonder, some farmers are taking it one step further by seeding cover crops. The benefit of added crop diversity along with improvements to soil health is paying off, as some of these farmers are achieving the highest yields in the country...

    What Farmers Need to Know About Mycorrhizae

    By Laura Barrera

    Published 9 months ago

    If someone asked you, “How do plants take up the water and nutrients they need?” you’d probably tell them through the roots. But did you know that for many crops, those roots aren’t working alone?That’s because most plant species associate with mycorrhizal fungi. What is mycorrhizal fungi? University of Alberta biological scientist JC Cahill says that mycorrhizas are actually the interaction between a fungus and a plant. Although there are many different types of mycorrhizae, the only one crop farmers need to be concerned about is arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF), as 65% of plant species associate with it... Grasses like sorghums, millets, rye, triticale, barleys — and oats in particular — are also excellent colonizers...

Robison saw this first hand recently with some farmers who had been saving the seed from their cereal rye cover crops and replanting them for four or five years... Ergot on rye... This can be an issue for cereal grain farmers using annual ryegrass as a cover crop, where having a few escapes is not unheard of. “If we have a few escapes of annual ryegrass and a few years later we’re planting wheat in that field, we’re not really thinking annual ryegrass is a problem because we go in and spray everything out,” Robison says...

    Some growers may have had no option but to plant green — as shown above — into their cover crops this year because of poor weather conditions. In this photo by Ted Kornecki, USDA Agricultural Research Service, the farmer is terminating his cereal rye with a roller at the same time he is planting his cotton.

    Penn State Weed Management Extension Specialist John Wallace adds that he doesn't know any growers planting green into annual ryegrass because allowing it to get too big will make it more difficult to control... But for those who have never planted green before, it would be better to first try planting green into a grass, like cereal rye or triticale... Larson Agricultural Research Center, soybeans were planted green into cereal rye that was being rolled in the same pass... She adds that corn also needs sufficient nitrogen at planting, especially if it’s planted into a cover crop that contains a grass like rye or triticale, which have high carbon-to-nitrogen (C:N) ratios and can keep nitrogen tied up from the corn. According to the Penn State Research Summary, (C:N) ratios above 25:1 typically result in immobilized nitrogen, and they found that rye had a ratio of 44:1 at the time of planting corn green into it...

    In 1995, Pennsylvania farmer Steve Groff was speaking at an event when he asked the audience the question: Do cover crops pay off?His thinking at the time was that he had been no-tilling since 1982, and maybe if he no-tilled long enough, he wouldn’t need them. Ray Weil, a soil ecologist with the University of Maryland, happened to hear his question and approached Groff about doing a cover crop study on his farm... Best cover crops to begin withFor farmers who are hoping for benefits from the get-go, Kladivko says grasses like cereal rye, wheat or barley, are good ones to start with because they grow faster and have fibrous roots... For growers looking for some additional weed control, Groff says that cereal rye before soybeans is a good fit. In fact, the Cover Crop Survey Report specifically asked respondents about their experience with cereal rye on herbicide-resistant weed control, and 25% said they always see improved control following cereal rye and 44% reporting “sometimes...

    Top 5 Reasons Why Black Oats Are The Best Beginner's Cover Crop

    By Cover Crops

    Published 10 months ago

    Black oats' C-to-N ratio is lower than that of cereal rye but has similar biomass tonnage. What does this mean? The lower C-to-N ratio will allow the black oats to break down quicker than cereal rye, returning valuable nutrients and organic particles back into your dirt that can be used by the crop immediately following the cover crops... I like cereal rye as a cover crop, too. But, one of the biggest problems farmers have with cereal rye cover crops is the speed at which they can get away from you...

    How Brazilian Big Agriculture is Destroying the Brazilian Amazon

    By Maria Dampman

    Published 1 years, 4 months ago

    The rampant deforestation of the Amazon began in the 1970s when the government of Brazil determined they needed to build over 9,000 miles of roads help integrate the rainforest with the populated bordering areas. As the deeper parts of the rainforest became accessible, development of these lands became possible, and once begun, continued at an alarming rate. Farmers, loggers and cattle ranchers cleared forest to create grazing land as well as to grow highly profitable crops like soy. In the beginning, no one was aware of the disastrous environmental consequences of destroying the forest often described as “the lungs of the Earth... Climate change has created a dryer than usual environment and lower than average amounts of rainfall creating a perfect storm for massive wildfires to engulf the region...

    The benefits of the drying process

    Risk-free storage
    Grain dryers quickly reduce the moisture content of the freshly harvested grain to safe levels and allow for its long-term storage. 

    Flexibility for the farmer
    Farmers are free to decide when to carry out drying whatever the weather conditions and to sell the grain when the market price is most favourable, generally months after threshing. 

    Increased value
    As well as drying the grain, the dryer removes the impurities collected in the field. This improves the quality of the end product and therefore its market value. 

    Return on the investment
    Purchasing a dryer requires a relatively modest financial commitment and the value of the used machine remains high over the years, thereby guaranteeing an excellent return on the investment.

    Standing by farmers is our commitment at a worldwide level, which also, and especially, means taking care of the whole planet and making decisions focusing on environmental sustainability.
