    How Cover Crops Affect Your Fertilizer Strategy

    By Laura Barrera

    Published Jun 29, 2018 

    When it comes to cover crops and nutrient management, a lot of the focus is on what cover crops can do for soil fertility... But how should farmers adjust their fertilizer practices for their cash crops following cover crops? John Pike, a contract researcher and cover crop specialist for the Zea Maize Foundation and IL Sustainable Agriculture Partnership, and a former Research Agronomist at the University of Illinois at Dixon Springs Research station, says that while there are some nuances that need to be planned for, the basic principles of soil fertility and crop management are much the same... “We’re talking about soil fertility and growing corn and beans and wheat or whatever the crop is, so approach it from a logical standpoint, one step at a time, to figure out the best system for the crops, soils and equipment you’re dealing with... ”Nitrogen timing is criticalFarmers first need to consider the benefits of the cover crops they’re seeding and how they may affect their fertilizer plans... ”For growers who can apply starter fertilizer, it’s common to use something like 10-34-0 where some type of phosphorus carrier can be placed on or near the seed to provide the plants an early boost...

    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... The cornerstone of any good crop production system involving conservation techniques is the establishment of cover crops... To find a good seeding rate, take the normal planting rate used for each seed type and divide it by the number of species within your mix. ● Limit your costs by saving seed to re-blend, especially small grains, but don’t skimp on seeding rate... ● Getting good seed-to-soil contact can be a challenge when planting into thick cover, but the cover crop’s root fibers can help prevent soil crusting so don’t be afraid to plant slightly deeper than normal...

    Should You Rotate Your Cover Crops? 4 Issues to Consider

He recommends only seeding a brassica every other year... ”Michigan State University Extension advises not planting oilseed radish as a cover crop on the same field for more than two years in a row, and avoiding it when growing cabbage, broccoli or radish for cash crops because of its susceptibility to the disease. Robison acknowledges that growing a brassica back to back does not automatically result in clubroot, especially if a grower’s only seeding a couple pounds per acre... Problems with cereals?

    Prevented Planting? Cover Crops Offer a Silver Lining

    By Laura Barrera

    Published Jul 18, 2019 

    Instead, it provides a great opportunity to seed cover crops... ”A Purdue Extension article by Purdue agronomist Eileen Kladivko and Indiana NRCS State Soil Health Specialist Barry Fisher explains there are several soil health benefits to using cover crops on prevented plant acres, including:Protection from wind and water erosionHelp build soil organic matter and soil aggregationImproved water infiltrationReduced soil compaction (deep-rooting species can often provide greater benefits in this situation because they have a longer time to grow)“What’s great about prevented plant, considering that it’s unfortunate that it happened, is it gives farmers the opportunity to plant something in early August with good seed-to-soil contact, and it’s going to help farmers have really good stands,” Carlson says... What Cover Crops Should You Seed?Just like when a farmer is using cover crops after harvest, one of the first factors to consider in picking a species is what the following cash crop will be... Carlson suggests using a mix of cowpeas, buckwheat and radish, with total seeds not exceeding 900,000 per acre and cowpeas making up a third to half of the mix... She would advise farmers seed a bushel of oats with 2 pounds of radishes per acre...

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

    By Amanda Allworth

    Published Aug 21, 2018 

    It’s been over two decades since the first Roundup Ready crops were planted in commercial fields... As new herbicide and seed products, including dicamba and 2,4-D tolerant crops, are introduced, we can take learnings from the Roundup Ready era and develop smarter weed management programs... So, those populations of weeds that had a natural tolerance to glyphosate weren’t adequately controlled, and instead, they matured and produced seed that led to the next generation of herbicide-resistant weeds... One way to confirm weeds are indeed resistant is to send tissue or seed samples to a lab for verification... Don’t let history repeat itselfThe new 2,4-D and dicamba-tolerant seed and chemistry technologies are coming at a time when farmers are in dire need of solutions to help combat herbicide-resistant weeds...

    Do you plant green? If so, what termination methods/timing do you use? For example, a burndown before planting the cash crop? Roller-crimping after planting? Etc. Thanks!

    How important is increasing cover crop mass when timing burndown?

    By Anonymous Member

    Published Apr 8, 2020 

    Is there a lot of benefit to letting cover crops grow a tremendous amount of vegetation prior to terminating them or do the risks of increased planting difficulty make it not worth the trouble?

    #AgHistory

    Did you ever wonder about fertilizer? Why was it developed, why it is used, and which is best (organic vs. conventional')? This is an aspect of agriculture with a significant amount of history, as well as myth, which needs to be understood if policy that doesn't repeat itself is to be developed. First, as a historian, one must consider WHY the search for a better means of fertilizing our crops. A great deal of debate exists in scientific circles about claims made from organic marketing, and these claims are at the center of this very question. It is crucial to accurately compare what we call organic methods with non-organic methods to understand why our ancestors shifted. One of the first papers I have come across and which I recommend reading: Seufert, V., Ramankutty, N. & Foley, J. Comparing the yields of organic and conventional agriculture. Nature 485, 229-232 (2012). https://doi.org/10.1038/nature11069. In it, you will see that "...The performance of organic systems varies substantially across crop types and species... For example, yields of organic fruits and oilseed crops show a small (3% and 11% respectively), but not statistically significant, difference to conventional crops, whereas organic cereals and vegetables have significantly lower yields than conventional crops (26% and 33% respectively)." While the researchers note that this subject needs further research, it does correspond with centuries of study that led to the development of chemical fertilizer in the first place. While space is limited in this format, we can still travel back in time to George Ville, who in the 1860's, scientifically studied this very subject in a manner we are familiar with. It is interesting to note that the Experimental Farm' of George Ville in France conducted many of the same types of research we would expect from our Cooperative Extension Experimental Stations' to this very day. Mr. Ville noted in his book ‘Chemical Manures' (3rd edition 1871) that natural manure composition varies (as we might expect depending on livestock health and pasture variations amongst the livestock). In short, chemical fertilizers were less expensive and produced better yields than manuring alone. Prior to the development of ‘chemical fertilizers', our own agricultural history has periods of attempting to find a better method than traditional manuring alone. Use of lime as a soil supplement for example, predates the Revolutionary War in the Susquehanna Valley, and Plaster of Paris (gypsum and sulphate of lime) shipped primarily from Nova Scotia until about 1815. Bat guano was shipped to Boston as early as 1830. In the early 1700's, farmers along Long Island sowed white fish in immense quantities, as much as 10,000 fish per acre (a glaring example of how ‘organic' and ‘sustainable' are not necessarily synonymous). There is much more to be said on this subject, and factual history must be understood as we look to feed future generations.

    Call for applications: Boot camps to train Climate Shapers in the Circular and Sustainable Food Chain

    The trainings address four themes, three of which are dedicated to the regeneration of places that more than others are enduring the effects of the climate crisis and which need innovative solutions to rethink the relationship between man and the environment:

    “Climate Smart Cities“,

    “Climate Smart Farms” and

    “Climate Smart Oceans“.

    One theme will instead focus on the kitchen as a strategic place from which change can start: “Climate Smart Kitchen“.

    Application Deadline: Ongoing

    Illustration Photo: In the heart of the Willamette Valley, the Keudell Family grows a variety of crops and seed crops on their 1,500-acre farm in Marion County. By working with the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service, they are saving water and energy with linear irrigation systems.
