    Key Factor in Improving Soil Water Infiltration Rates: Living Roots

    By Laura Barrera

    Published Jan 22, 2020 

    One way to help manage these high rainfall events is to improve soil water infiltration — the faster it can enter the soil, the less likely it will pond or run off the farm, taking valuable soil and nutrients with it. But what are the best practices for increasing water infiltration rates?University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL) assistant professor of agronomy and horticulture Andrea Basche set out to find just that... Top Practices: Perennials & Cover CropsBasche and DeLonge’s research discovered the practice that improved water infiltration rates the most was having perennial crops, such as grasses or trees, incorporated into the cropland... ”The second most influential practice was cover crops, which the meta-analysis found improved soil water infiltration by an average 35%...

    How to know the water distribution of a leaf? Nanoscale sensors do it

    By Isla Miller

    Published Jun 28 

    The water regulation in the leaves is essential to the health of the plant, affecting its growth and yield, susceptibility and drought resistance. The surface of the leaves is the most active part of the plant for water management. A breakthrough technology developed by researchers at Cornell University uses nanoscale sensors and optical fibers to measure the water status of leaf surfaces... ”Co-first author Piyush Jain, a PhD student in mechanical engineering, said: “Current technologies to measure water energy require destructive sampling of leaves, or disruption of leaf function. ” This new approach, he says, “provides minimal disruption and addresses measurements of leaf water potential in intact plants in space and time...

    Canada Agriculture Day: Water Pollution from Agriculture

    By Cierra Bray

    Published Mar 26, 2018 

    Our theme this year is Water Pollution from Agriculture, which is a global challenge that has increased in both developed and developing countries, undermining economic growth as well as the physical and environmental health of billions of people. Human settlements, industries and agriculture are the major sources of water pollution. Globally, 80 percent of municipal wastewater is discharged into water bodies untreated, and industry is responsible for dumping millions of tonnes of heavy metals, solvents, toxic sludge and other wastes into water bodies each year. Agriculture, which accounts for 70 percent of water abstractions worldwide, plays a major role in water pollution. Farms discharge large quantities of agrochemicals, organic matter, drug residues, sediments and saline drainage into water bodies...

    Top 4 ways to stimulate root growth

    By Darren Chan

    Published Sep 3, 2019 

    Importance of healthy rootsFirst, they anchor the plant in place, resisting the forces of wind and running water or mudflow. Secondly, the root system takes in oxygen, water and nutrients from the soil, to move them up through the plant to the stems, leaves, and blooms. where they can interact with sunlight to produce sugars and energy for the plant. Last but not least, scientists have recently discovered that roots actually secrete compounds that affect the microorganisms in the soil, which can help protect the plants from disease and encourage it to absorb nutrients from the soil... Appropriate ManagementApply root promoting fertilizer under regular schedule contain a high content of phosphorousEnsure the appropriate growth temperatureProvide adequate lightDo not overwaterMore info how to prevent root growth...

    Advantages of seaweed fertilizer for plants

    By Darren Chan

    Published Dec 31, 2019 

    Seaweed fertilizer is an organic fertilizer produced by accurate processing of marine plant seaweed as the primary raw material. The main component is the natural organic active material extracted from kelp. Below are the advantages of seaweed fertilizer for plants:1 Nutrient-richThe active seaweed fertilizer contains a large amount of non-nitrogen-containing organic matter, including 40 kinds of minerals such as potassium, calcium, magnesium, iron, zinc, and iodine, and abundant vitamins, which are unmatched by terrestrial plants, especially seaweed polysaccharides unique to seaweeds. Alginic acid, highly unsaturated fatty acids and a variety of natural plant growth regulators can stimulate the production of non-specific active factors in plants and regulate the balance of endogenous elements... Alginic acid in seaweed fertilizer can reduce the surface tension of water, forming a layer of film on the surface of the plant, increasing the contact area, water-soluble substances are relatively easy to penetrate the surface cells of stems and leaves so that plants can effectively absorb the nutrients in the seaweed extract...
