    What to look for when hiring farm employees

    By The Crossover

    Published Aug 9, 2018

    With the increasing use of precision ag tools and increased machinery efficiencies, the whole dynamic of hiring farm employees has changed as well.

The game has changed and those who don’t recognize that the characteristics of what they’re looking for in farm employees has changed will be left trying to fit a round peg into a square hole...

    From Farm to Fork

    By Ammar Alshami

    Published Jan 17, 2019

    The emphasis is always on unprocessed and whole foods that are free from preservatives and reduction in consumption of sugary drinks such as pop sodas... Our ancestors before the advent of Processed Foods and Sodas were much healthier and had a probability of longevity of life. The answer is that they were not munching on processed foods, high sodium and low calcium diet, sugary drinks and unhealthy fast food... Now keeping in view this guideline, what are we eating? Our breakfasts are comprised of high sugar cereals, our lunch is loaded with sodium, saturated fats and fast foods and our dinners are no good... The underlining cause of obesity is processed foods with high sugar and fat content, high sodium and white carbs and artificial flavors...

    If you think of the soil as a digester similar to a gut, managing pH to be slightly acidic keeps it operating effectively to assimilate nutrients that are already present or being added in the form of manures and fertilizers. I often explain it as if you are taking advantage of what is inherently present and using what might be added as efficiently as possible. A healthy gut or soil, one being slightly acidic where as good bacteria and fungi flourish does that. pH is the linchpin to creating that environment conducive for healthy flora to thrive.
    Often I think we don't understand all the ways pH is useful or even what drives it. It can also be a hard concept to grasp. I liken it to an abacus. You're using calcium, magnesium, sodium, and potassium, etc. balancing pH -hydrogen, to encourage a healthy system. And as you mentioned, grow a better crop with less or no fertilizer.
