    How to Source Farm Interns

    By Gregory Heilers

    Published May 12, 2018  

    The Keenans were up to their elbows in infrastructure projects, animal husbandry, and a burgeoning farmstay business, and needed help in a bad way. Balancing a post and beam, lime plaster home construction project against caretaking goats and chickens, while juggling four human kids to boot, left the Keenans with little time for their personal lives. So, the family turned to the outside world for help. As a recent college grad excited about farming, I responded to their advertisement, and soon found my way to the delightful Keenan homestead. For eight hours a day (tea breaks aside - we were in The Wirral, afterall), I helped the Keenans build their future home, steward their livestock, and even watched their children...

    Fertilizer management to improve yields

    By Miriam Pitzalis

    Updated Aug 20  

    Grain yield is strongly influenced by various factors, such as soil characteristics, irrigation, genetics, climate, cultivation techniques, and use of fertilizers. Fertilizers contribute incisively to the final production. To develop optimal fertilizer recommendations, it is necessary to determine the status of plant-available nutrients. The right fertilizer doses avoid incurring saline stress or nutritional deficiencies that lead to yield losses. What elements should growers consider besides the results of a soil test?The chemical-physical analysis of the soil is only a starting point to accurately establish the nutrient requirements of plant growth...

    By Sam Baker

    Published Feb 21  

    Agriculture is one of the most competitive markets in the world, and in competitive markets every decision matters.

    An Introduction to Augmentative Biocontrol

    By Thomas Grandperrin

    Published Apr 7  

    In the previous article in this series we discussed classical biocontrol, which is the practice of identifying the origins of pests found in local fields, then finding the natural enemies of those pests in their foreign origins and bringing the “enemy of my enemy” (otherwise known as “beneficials”) back from their homelands to local farms to renew old rivalries and help suppress pest populations. As we have seen, this strategy is usually coordinated, or at least regulated, by public organizations at a regional, national or even continental scale. But a lot of the pests damaging our crops are actually native to our regions and already have local natural enemies. The problem though is that the population of those control agents is often insufficient and on the decline, for various reasons, some of which we will discuss in an upcoming article. To highlight a few of the most common causes though, industrial farming techniques such as monocropping and the use of phytosanitary products can affect populations of beneficial insects...

    HEMP & CANNABIS

    By Christopher Keen

    Published Oct 20, 2018  

    We just received a wonderful testimonial from a grower in California whose crop was infected with Russet Mites. He is using our new Aloe 420 product on his crop. This is what he had to say:To the Aloe420 Team:I took over a 400 outdoor plant grow that was totally stressed by russet mites and if it were not for applying Aloe420 I would have lost the grow. The plant was split in half from the mite infestation and after 5 weeks of Aloe420 treatment, the plant has grown back together!Aloe420 saved us, and we will use it in our protocol from seed to pre-flower in all future grows. Thank you, Aloe420, amazing product!Dear Marc and the Aloe 420 Team:Very simply put, myself and my team feel Aloe420 is short of a miracle product not only providing a safe shield for our grow but helping restore plants that we would have thrown out in grows past...
