    Soil factors that affect yield variability in corn production

    By Mario Petkovski

    Updated Aug 1, 2020 

    Data derived from annual USDA-NASS Crop Production ReportsEvery farmer's dream is to have a field that contains fertile soil, sufficient nutrient content, and a right balance between beneficial and harmful microorganisms and insects... Spatial variability refers to the difference in the yield of certain areas in the same field due to unequal characteristics of soil, plants, and terrain. Factors affecting corn yield variability:Soil textureThe percentage of sand, gravel, and clay in the soil determines its texture. With the help of a simple manual technique, one can quickly identify the soil texture in a specific field. Different texture in spatial distribution differently affects corn yield through variations in nutrient capacity and availability, water capacity and transport, binding or decomposition of pesticides, as well as soil stability itself to different destructive forces...

    Soil Health Vs. Soil Fertility

    Published Mar 20, 2018 

    In the 52 Weeks of Agronomy Series I've been posting on my website, I took a week and explained this agronomist's take on soil health vs. soil fertility. To read the article and get caught up on the rest of the series follow along at News | The Accidental Agronomist I spoke at a conference in front of 200 farmers and used the term, custom soil fertility programs. At the time I was working as a sales agronomist for a fertilizer company that offered custom fertilizer recommendations based on a farmer’s soil tests...

Download PDF brochure: Download PDF Brochure - Soil Aerators Market | Scope, Size, Share and Market Forecast to 2023 | MarketsandMarkets Inquiry Before Buying - Soil Aerators Market | Scope, Size, Share and Market Forecast to 2023 | MarketsandMarkets The Asia Pacific region accounted for the largest share in this market and is also expected to be the fastest growing market during the forecast period. This region has soil with poorly developed layers, owing to which farmers are inclined toward using soil aerators for enhancing the texture and structure of the soil. Also, the region has clay soil in abundance which gets compacted and forms cracks when dry, subsequently driving the need for soil aeration to make the land suitable for cultivation. The major drivers for the growth of the Asia Pacific soil aerators market include the rising urbanization and standard of living, increase in footfalls, overgrazing by livestock, the pressure exerted by heavy equipment, climatic conditions, strong government support through subsidies, and increased productivity requirements...

    How to Create the Most Effective Soil Sampling Program

    By Laura Barrera

    Published Oct 1, 2020 

    , now is a good time to prepare for your soil sampling program. Most universities and the NRCS recommend taking soil samples in the off-season, after the last crop harvest, and before the next cash crop is planted... But before you can grab your soil probe and head out to the field, you need to understand best soil sampling practices and have a plan of action for collecting your samples, so you can accurately capture the soil chemistry and variability of your fields. Poor soil sampling practices can result in incorrect data, which can end up costing you in either inputs or yield. “The foundation of understanding or making an appropriate recommendation comes from having a representative soil sample,” says Jason Ackerson, a Purdue University soil scientist...

    POWER2GRO Crop Production System isn’t a Product Fix. It’s a Soil Solution.

    And when customers combine soil health principles with ASN’s POWER2GRO Crop Production system, they can do more, with less... Soil health is considered a journey where farmers start at different points for different reasons... ASN is farmer owned, farmer trusted and soil health approved,” Monte said... Prior to that, Monte founded California Ag Solutions in 2004 by bringing the soil health practices of the Midwest, to the soil depleted Central Valley of California... “It’s always that approach where growers say, ‘You’re telling me I need to change something when I’ve been doing this for 35-40 years?’ Yes, yes I am!” Antonio’s confidence in the POWER2GRO Crop Production system comes from seeing firsthand the impact of putting soil health as the priority...

    By Darren Chan

    Published Jul 4, 2018 

    First of all,let us understand the soil structureThe soil is a porous system... The solid material in the soil includes both mineral and organic matter. The liquid part refers to the moisture of the soil,which is preserved and moved between the pores of the soil and is the most active part of the soil. The gas part refers to the air of the soil and it is filled with pores that are not occupied by moisture... Crumb structure is a type of soil structure in which the structural units or peds have a spheroidal or crumb shape...
