    How to Source Farm Interns

    By Gregory Heilers

    Published 5 months ago

    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...

    By Christopher Keen

    Published 4 days ago

    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...

    Should You Rotate Your Cover Crops? 4 Issues to Consider

    By Laura Barrera

    Published 4 months ago

    You probably know that having a crop rotation is a good thing. Growing different crops back to back provides several benefits, such as preventing pests and disease, improving soil health and reducing fertilizer inputs, all of which can boost your crop yields and your bottom line. By adding cover crops to the mix, you’re diversifying your rotation even more. But have you thought about rotating your cover crops? Should you be using the same cover crop species back to back, year after year?Dave Robison, who runs the blog PlantCoverCrops... A corn-soybean rotation is easy, Robison says, but if you have cereal grains or specialty crops in there, you need to be exceptionally careful...

    Dealing with Wild Weather

    By John Moody

    Published 4 months ago

    For much of the country, it has been a wild spring. For some, it has been a no spring. In my area we had an unseasonably long, late winter. Snow fell in the 3rd week of April... Plants prefer both not too much and not too little, unless you happen to be growing rice or a few other specialty crops! Depending on what you are growing, design can make a big difference to dealing with overly wet conditions...
