    7 Ways to Measure Soil Health Improvements

    By Laura Barrera

    Published Mar 7, 2019 

    While there are numerous reasons for using cover crops, a primary one is improving soil health. In fact, it’s the one benefit most farmers using cover crops have experienced: In the most recent Cover Crop Survey Annual Report, of those who rated the statement, “Using cover crops has improved soil health on my farm,” 86% agreed or strongly agreed. The report notes that it’s interesting and heartening that “soil health reflects an embrace of a long-term, hard-to-quantify benefit of cover crops, and that for the past two surveys, it has achieved the top spot by garnering 86% of the responses. ”While soil health may be harder to quantify than benefits like biomass production or input savings, there are ways of measuring how cover crops are making a difference in your soil...

    Chitosan & mycorrhiza complement each other for soil healthy

    By Darren Chan

    Published Feb 12, 2019 

    Researchers are studying the effects of chitosan on mycorrhiza. Good effects on mycorrhizal and root systems of related plants can be observed, leading to healthier crops growth and fruiting. The enzyme-resistant enzymes (chitinase) produced by plants are particularly effective against the phytopathogenic fungi cell wall, but they don’t have such function against the cell wall of mycorrhiza. It would be no harmful increase in the mycorrhiza, chitinase after observing the soil chitosan-treated... Chitosan is aimed to improving the soil living conditions against soil-borne pathogens...

    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...

    "You should be able to tell from my blog that I am a big fan of soil health/regenerative agriculture. ... With all this in mind, however, ... I'm getting worried that we are trying to break this approach to farming and ranching down into a simplistic laundry list of specific things you have to do each and every year on each and every acre instead of recognizing that every acre is a little different and that every producer has a different reality. ... All I can suggest is that maybe we take a little time to step back from the checklist and take a broader view of what needs to be done on an individual farm or ranch."

    "It's our hope that by doing this work we are connecting with the next generation of 'progressive agriculturalists' and spreading the word about soil health/regenerative ag and how it can help us feed and clothe the world in a way that protects our resource base for future generations."

    "Cover crops are often part of a suite of conservation practices that comprise a farmer’s soil health management system. Other conservation practices, such as no-till farming and a written nutrient management plan, are more common on fields with cover crops than on fields without cover crops."
