    Weed Control in Organic Soybean Farms

    By Vijayalaxmi Kinhal

    Updated Oct 24, 2020 

    It is more difficult to control weeds in soybeans because of their compact foliage, which takes longer than grain crops to produce an interlocking canopy that shades inter-row area... Prevent weeds from establishing in the fields through good sanitation, crop rotation, and cover crops... Generally delayed planting can encourage faster germination of soybean crops in warmer conditions and provide an opportunity to tackle early germinating weeds by shallow tilling... When crops with varying life-cycles and management are used it prevents the same weed from building pressure... A rotation can break disease and pest cycles providing healthier, more vigorous competitive crops,” says Dan Rossman from the Michigan State University Extension...

    An Introduction to Augmentative Biocontrol

    By Thomas Grandperrin

    Published Apr 7, 2020 

    But a lot of the pests damaging our crops are actually native to our regions and already have local natural enemies... Inoculative augmentation is when a release of beneficial is made on the crops once during the season and the control is ensured for the rest of the season by their offsprings... Numerous pests are successfully controlled within fields growing a wide variety of crops around the world. Crop examples include permanent crops such as vineyards, citrus and apple orchards as well as annual crops such as strawberry, cannabis, and corn... We will discover that while augmentative biological control was historically known mainly for greenhouse vegetable and floriculture production, these new technics open new opportunities for outdoor crops such as trees, orchards, vineyards, etc...

    She works with some of the main crops of the Salina Valley, California such as leafy greens, broccoli, cauliflower, and artichoke... Gina Bella Colfer in a Salinas Valley fieldDuring our conversation, we touched upon various topics such as conservation biological control, the use of beneficial insects in vegetable crops, and the promotion of soil health... That is why, as a company, we really encourage permanent cover cropping in tree orchards and vineyards and strip habitat in row crops,” comments Gina... ” The promising opportunities for biocontrol in outdoor vegetable row cropsIn vegetable row crops like lettuces, some growers are having major issues with thrips that can transmit a virus called impatiens necrotic spot virus (INSV)...

    If you use a cover crop roller, when should you burn down?

    By Pat Rogers

    Published Apr 7 

    If you are using a cover crop roller prior to planting, should you burn down before or after rolling the cover crops?

    "Researchers have looked into the practice of alley cropping, planting long-term tree crops alongside short-term cash crops, for sustainability. Alley cropping is a type of agroforestry, which is the practice of combining crops and trees into one farming system. The dual income from the land can bring greater economic security to farmers."

    Measuring Canopy Structure and Condition Using Multi-Spectral UAS Imagery in a Horticultural Environment

    Authors: Yu-Hsuan Tu, Kasper Johansen, Stuart Phinn and Andrew Robson

    Journal: Remote Sens. 2019, 11(3), 269

    Publisher: MDPI

    Tree condition, pruning and orchard management practices within intensive horticultural tree crop systems can be determined via measurements of tree structure. Multi-spectral imagery acquired from an unmanned aerial system (UAS) has been demonstrated as an accurate and efficient platform for measuring various tree structural attributes, but research in complex horticultural environments has been limited. This research established a methodology for accurately estimating tree crown height, extent, plant projective cover (PPC) and condition of avocado tree crops, from a UAS platform. Individual tree crowns were delineated using object-based image analysis. In comparison to field measured canopy heights, an image-derived canopy height model provided a coefficient of determination (R2) of 0.65 and relative root mean squared error of 6%. Tree crown length perpendicular to the hedgerow was accurately mapped. PPC was measured using spectral and textural image information and produced an R2 value of 0.62 against field data. A random forest classifier was applied to assign tree condition into four categories in accordance with industry standards, producing out-of-bag accuracies > 96%. Our results demonstrate the potential of UAS-based mapping for the provision of information to support the horticulture industry and facilitate orchard-based assessment and management

    Agroforestry is something that'll we'll be promoting at Help For Landowners Organization.. you can have your trees, veggies, and other plants living in harmony, it's a great way to utilize a small plot. In this podcast the farmer shares how he's growing ginseng and goldenseal in his farming forest.

    Interactions between Trees, Crops and Animals: Experiences in a novel Bioenergy-Livestock system in the UK

    Authors: Smith J, Deremetz V, Gerrard C, Costanzo A

    Publisher: Zenodo

    Managing the interactions between trees, crops and animals is an on-going challenge for agroforestry farmers. This paper reports on interactions between trees, crops and both wild animals and livestock in the establishment years of a novel UK agroforestry system combining short rotation coppice for energy production with livestock production. Our trials suggest that in the first six years there is no significant impact of trees on the alley crops (pasture and whole crop oat silage) in this system. Protecting the trees from livestock damage is essential in the early years; with cattle, our results show that it this is possible using a single stranded electric fence. Patterns of biodiversity varied between taxa; earthworm abundances were higher in the tree rows, which represent an undisturbed stable habitat, while the more active ground beetles were in greater abundances in the crop alleys which may reflect higher levels of prey within the crop.
