    What Farmers Need to Know About Mycorrhizae

    By Laura Barrera

    Published Nov 2, 2018

    If someone asked you, “How do plants take up the water and nutrients they need?” you’d probably tell them through the roots. But did you know that for many crops, those roots aren’t working alone?That’s because most plant species associate with mycorrhizal fungi. What is mycorrhizal fungi? University of Alberta biological scientist JC Cahill says that mycorrhizas are actually the interaction between a fungus and a plant... A study at the University of Adelaide in Australia was conducted to quantify the contribution of AMF to phosphorus uptake in wheat. The researchers used phosphorus 32, a radioactive isotope of phosphorus, and grew the wheat in compartmented pots with highly calcareous and phosphorus-fixing soil from a major cereal-growing area in South Australia...

    How Brazilian Big Agriculture is Destroying the Brazilian Amazon

    By Maria Dampman

    Published Apr 4, 2018

    The rampant deforestation of the Amazon began in the 1970s when the government of Brazil determined they needed to build over 9,000 miles of roads help integrate the rainforest with the populated bordering areas. As the deeper parts of the rainforest became accessible, development of these lands became possible, and once begun, continued at an alarming rate... However, with the limited governmental ability to oversee the development of an enormous dense forest just slightly smaller than the continent of Australia, it wasn’t a surprise to anyone when eager farmers and cattlemen started to illegally clear additional land... As more Eastern cultures adopt a Western diet, the need for beef products has increased exponentially... With the traditional cures of visits to shamans no longer a possibility for help and an almost complete lack of western psychiatric services, it’s no wonder these children are seeking what they believe will be the only way out of their despair...

    Understanding Agrilend and the MERCOSUR

Most of the population lives near the continent's western or eastern coasts while the interior and the far south are sparsely populated.

    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.

    7 Ways to Measure Soil Health Improvements

    By Laura Barrera

    Published Mar 7

    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... “They’ll start seeing a marked increase in that nice crumbly feel in their soil,” she explains, noting that this can occur as soon as the first season after using cover crops for growers in more humid regions, like the Corn Belt, while it may take a little longer for southern and western regions where conditions are drier and the some of the soils are more degraded...

    Nuisance Lawsuits are Taking a Bite Out of Big Pork

    By Maria Dampman

    Published Aug 17, 2018

    In 1611, William Aldred took his neighbor to court. Thomas Benton was being sued for “erecting a hogstye so near the house of the plaintiff that the air thereof was corrupted. ” In common language, the pigs stank, making it impossible for Aldred to enjoy his home which, in his words, had become “unbearable to live in. ” The courts sided with Aldred, saying the odor was “depriving him of his dignity” and therefore, a violation of his rights... In addition, the middle class is a fast growing demographic that has adopted a more Western-style diet...
