Watch For Frost
Crops Technology Editor, Gil Gullickson, discusses how cloud cover and wind can be conducive to if your crop is damaged or not.midwestern states of the Dakotas and Minnesota that means frost cancer -- Rapid City , South Dakota writes just this week experiences. Earliest snowfall since 1988. In states like South Dakota that's the concern courts so bending soybeans are still green soybeans are still willing. And -- temperature is forecast to be flirting with freezing tonight. Two Saturday that the answer. There's two things to make a difference when it comes across that cloud cover and -- we have cloud cover that whoever the surface cooling. And we have winds that -- the atmosphere increased slightly warmer temperatures down in the ground enabling props to dot frost. Now what you don't have those conditions present the opposite is true and that in pre conditions conducive frost damage results. Now the good news this is that temperatures hitting highs -- sixties Japanese -- supposed to move in. Later. Early into next -- -- once we dodged this bullet. We should BO OK but just remember those two things cloud cover . And win and they can make -- difference whether -- crop it's they would like --
Soil Health at Farm Science Review
@OhioDNR Soil Scientist, Matt Deaton discusses soil properties for improved soil health at the 2014 Farm Science Review in London Ohio.penetration. And and it really leads are good environment for. Those different. Micro organisms down through here. In comparison here's a piece of of of soil -- clawed its oil from. Just across the road here and crop fields if you look here we've got a lot of -- let's -- on here and ultimately this was taken from the inroads. But the full right here we really were looking at a mass social structure . The structure here is is very very difficult to. To break bill's very very very tough and if you look. You get
Gypsum Application at Farm Science Review
Cory Schurman from Gypsoil discusses the benefits of gypsum, both for improving soil quality and environmental benefits. Jordan Anderson reports from the 2014 Farm Science Review from London, Ohiodoing -- were scrubbing. The ticket high quality calcium and scrubbing the sulfur dioxide from the gasses from -- pools clean coal technology . That's what brought that out here today and we spread debt to brain -- spreader right here. And where they can variable
Nutrient Management by Manure Sampling
Amanda Douridas, an Agriculture & Natural Resources Extension Educator from The Ohio State University, discusses how manure sampling can assist producers on how much nutrients their crop needs and how to abide environmental concerns for over application.and determine why you wanna -- -- because you can't just get nitrogen phosphorus and potassium breaking yet. That micro nutrients as well. And then I am making sure they get a good representative sample . From there storage said this is why it when -- applying it's a lot easier to pull a representative sample . How I have very then. You might need to adjust your application. If you applied to little once you get that sample
Haney Soil Test
Lance Gunderson, soil health specialist at Ward Laboratories in Kearney, Nebraska, discusses what the Haney Soil Test is used for on an operation.hospital when he hit his tee it asks. Rudy beat -- feet tall trees and holes. Where my office and office. So overall I was growing medium earth and she's we keep putting the right records
Confluence Project: Bioreactors
The Successful Farming Confluence Project visits the Webster City, Iowa farm of Arlo Van Diest. Van Diest installed two bioreactors on his land to help decrease the nitrates in waterways.reactor but it's a very simple. Process of water group enters the wood chips . The practice. Has been well received by farmers. Number one they liked the idea that it has a small footprint it's aunderneath the buffer strip. We're -- that into a trench filled with wood chips . And those wood chips . Allow -- trade and and carbon you release today is nitrogen gas. The bar reactor practices. Is relatively new we have it as an entrance standard with the Natural Resources Conservation Service . And so farmers can receive car share on it. I was soybean association is been assisting. With that practice by measuring the101000 dollars a lot of it depends on the availability contractors. And wood chips and and structures and and it's it's kind of split up and a third through the structures that third for the wood chips and a third for. Contractors.
Confluence Project: A. J. and Kellie Blair Farm
The Successful Farming Confluence Project visits the Dayton Iowa farm of A. J. and Kellie Blair. They discuss the practices they use to help conserve and protect the water supply.By reducing. Tillage. Weird we've been able to keeper yields up and save money . We pinpoint the right application rates of products. And don't over replied don't under apply given us a maximum yield advantage. And no more conservation things we do I think we found out that they they lend themselves to economic gain all -- or if we. If we try something new and it gives us more yield -- times. The conservation we find some conservation benefits that. So that we really found after working went -- for a few years. Conservation and economics most of the time working
