    Grain Drying Technology Using Paddy Husk

    By SUNCUE Grain Dryer

    Published Mar 28, 2019 

    Burning paddy husk in a rice husk furnace can be a complete substitute for gas or diesel by burning paddy husk to provide necessary thermal energy. This not only increases the millers/farmer’s income through significantly reducing drying cost and improving grain quality, it is also an important 21st century drying industry breakthrough. Paddy husk had long been considered rural waste, but with this technical innovation it can produce amazing thermal energy. The thermal energy generated by 1 kilogram of paddy husk is about 3,000 to 3,500 kcal. Therefore, only 2...

    What Farmers Need to Know About Mycorrhizae

    By Laura Barrera

    Published Nov 2, 2018 

    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, barley — and oats in particular — are also excellent colonizers...

    4 Steps to Building Soil Organic Matter in the South

    By Laura Barrera

    Published Jul 18, 2018 

    As we learn more about what goes on in the world beneath our feet, increased attention has been placed on soil organic matter. And for good reason. While it only makes up a small percentage of most soils, the Sustainable Agriculture Research & Education (SARE) says it’s the “very foundation for healthy and productive soils” — and the more organic matter there is, the better the results. Consider the following findings from SARE and the NRCS:A study of soils in Michigan demonstrated potential crop-yield increases of about 12% for every 1% organic matter... He knows one farmer who decided to grow a mix of sorghum sudangrass, sunn hemp, daikon radish, sunflower and cowpeas right after his corn crop, before planting winter wheat...

    Weed Control in Organic Soybean Farms

    By Vijayalaxmi Kinhal

    Updated Oct 24, 2020 

    Experts all agree that there is no silver bullet to control weeds in the organic cultivation of soybeans. Farmers need to use a combination of measures to keep weeds at bay in the short and long term. Soybean vs WeedsWeed control is the main problem in organic agriculture including in soybeans... In the long-term, rotating with crops like wheat or sorghum which produce high residue also improves soil fertility by increasing soil carbon and nitrogen levels... Sorghum residue mulch reduces populations of Brachiaria plantaginea by 96%, Sida rhombifolia by 91%, and Bidens pilosa by 59%...

    Root Exudates 101: What They Do and Why They Matter

    By Laura Barrera

    Published Mar 23, 2020 

    When you picture what’s happening below ground in your fields, you probably imagine a web of roots branching out to provide your crops support, nutrients and water. But root growth isn’t the only thing happening beneath the surface. Roots are also secreting chemical compounds, known as root exudates, which play an important role in both crop production and soil health. Released primarily from the root hairs and cells immediately behind the penetrating root tip, says an Agronomy for Sustainable Development article, root exudates attract and sustain a variety of microorganisms, like arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi and nitrogen-cycling bacteria, in the rhizosphere, which is the zone of soil directly surrounding the roots... Sorghum root hair with oily droplet exuding from the tip...

    How Farmers Conduct Their Own On-Farm Research to Improve Production

    By Laura Barrera

    Updated Mar 1 

    With last year’s season completed and this year’s yet to begin, now is a natural time to reflect on your farm’s performance and how you can improve in the future. One way to make your decision-making process even better is by conducting your own on-farm research. It’s a process the Hardwick brothers and Nick McMichen have gained tremendous value from using on their respective operations. Here they share how they got started, how they design their trials, and the tools and technologies they use to make it happen... Today, the brothers continue working with LSU on experiments that will impact their row crops, which are primarily cotton, corn, and soybeans, as well as some grain sorghum and wheat...

    Prevented Planting? Cover Crops Offer a Silver Lining

    By Laura Barrera

    Published Jul 18, 2019 

    Wet conditions across the country forced many farmers to forgo their plans for the season and take prevented planting payments instead. The USDA says that as of July 8, 2019, its paid roughly $184 million in claims for prevented planting because of floods and excess moisture. University of Illinois ag economist Gary Schnitkey estimates payouts could reach a record-setting $3. 578 billion... Why Cover Crop Prevented Plant Acres?“If you have livestock, it’s a total no-brainer,” says Sarah Carlson, Strategic Initiatives Director for Practical Farmers of Iowa, explaining that sorghum-sudangrass or Japanese millet would provide livestock farmers access to a lot of forage for the summer and reduce their feedstock expenses...

    I have a dirty mind because

    Published Mar 12, 2018 

    I Think Like an AgronomistThe idea of thinking like an agronomist has come up in several conversations lately. I was at a conference recently and asked how I would have answered a question asked by a farmer. I turned to the sale rep and said that I wouldn't have answered it. I would have asked more questions... I was young and wanted to look at canola, sorghum, and alfalfa; I thought that was where the real action was...

    Citizens Weekly Newsletter June 22, 2018

    By Angie Setzer

    Published Jun 22, 2018 

    This Week In Agriculture:A Mixed Bag of Information from the Week that Was: June 22, 2018· Another volatile week as traders work to decipher what a continued trade war could mean for commodities going forward and the old adage “rain makes grain” is put to the test. When the closing bell rang for the week we saw December corn down nearly 5 cents, December wheat down 12 and November soybeans down 14. · The week started relatively weak as heat that had built throughout the bulk of the Corn Belt over the weekend was expected to give way to cooler temperatures coupled with extreme moisture in areas of the Belt that had seen beneficial rainfall the week before. With corn ratings nationally sitting at 78% good to excellent—a near record high and bean ratings at 73% the common idea was rain would continue to benefit production... Wheat, cotton and sorghum acreage is expected to come in relatively close to March estimates as well...
