  • A New Era of Farm Employees: Farm Technicians vs. Farm Hands?

    By Gregory Heilers

    Published Jun 4, 2018  

    Traditional agricultural skills that made civilization possible are still alive and in use today. At the same time, hundreds of farm technician job listings across the US, and the rise of precision agriculture and software, clearly evidence the need for technologically-savvy farm technicians in the 21st century agricultural industry. It’s no surprise that tech-friendly millennials interested in farming are encouraged by these developments, which may make farming less labor intensive than in generations past... Without technicians capable of running and maintaining these new tools, farms cannot tap into such precision herbicide application... individual animal management tools, technology in tractors, sensors, etc...

    Oh deer! Deer damage and what farmers can do about it

    By John Moody

    Published May 21, 2018  

    It is that time of year again, at least in my parts. As things go from the tunnel to the field, all our friendly little four legged foes start to to make dinner plans… and breakfast plans. Some are making midnight snack plans as well. Raccoons, rabbits, and the worst of all in our area - deer... Getting ahead of the curveFarmer’s should take advantage of these problems and concerns and position themselves and legislative change that gives them more flexibility to deal with deer issues as part of the solution - providing more tools to farmers to control and prevent deer damage while also selling it’s side benefits - greater public safety on our roadways and help in suppressing diseases that are negatively impacting more and more Americans...

    What’s root knot nematode?

    By Darren Chan

    Published May 7, 2019  

    Root-knot nematodes are one of the three most economically damaging genera of plant-parasitic nematodes on horticultural and field crops. Root-knot nematodes are very small and they parasitic the roots of thousands of plant species, including monocotyledonous and dicotyledonous, herbaceous and woody plants. They dwell in the soil, attack the roots of the plant to extract water and nutrients. As a result, large galls or “knots” can form throughout the root systems of infected plants... Agricultural controlStrengthen inspection and quarantine, and try to reduce or even eliminate the transmission of root-knot nematodes through seedlings, machinery, tools and other human factorsReasonable rotation can reduce the amount of soil nematodes and reduce the occurrence of diseasesTreat sick strains thoroughly and fertilize and irrigate rationallySelect anti-root knot nematode varieties or choose root-knot nematode rootstock for graftingBiological controlThe biological preparation has the advantages of good compatibility, eco-friendly...

    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... Visual ChangesFinally, one of the easiest tools for observing how your soil health is improving is the shovel...

    The Story of AgFuse

    By Pat Rogers

    Published Jul 16, 2018  

    In July of 2014, I sat in the audience on the last day of the InfoAg Conference in St Louis. It was my first major farm conference trip outside of somewhat local events that had been put on near my home in the Carolinas. Frankly, my mind was blown with this experience. I had taken in more new information in a three-day period than I had in the previous five years combined... Thus, networking and information sharing is becoming more and more limited to things like conferences and, now, digital tools like AgFuse and other social media platforms...

    20 Years Later: What Roundup Ready Crops Taught Us About Weed Management

    By Amanda Allworth

    Published Aug 21, 2018  

    It’s been over two decades since the first Roundup Ready crops were planted in commercial fields. At the time of introduction, the technology was revolutionary for farmers, who found a highly effective and convenient chemistry to control a broad spectrum of weeds. Roundup Ready corn and soybeans quickly became the norm in fields across the United States, and as a result, application of glyphosate increased dramatically. The initial ease and success of Roundup Ready technology may have caused some farmers to become lax with their weed management programs, which was ultimately a factor in the introduction of glyphosate-resistant weeds... Even though we have new tools to work with, we can’t treat them the same way we did glyphosate...
