Can this field be fixed? 50% Low Residue Crops
Jason Miller, NRCS conservation agronomist, points out a rotation that is in a rotation that consists of 50% in a low-residue crop rotation.the plates. That are formed Ernie here. And those routes from the growing crop actually struggle to get through. This play eighty soil structure. And that again as a result of. Of a rotation that doesn't
Can this field be fixed? Cover Crops
Jason Miller, NRCS conservation agronomist, points out how incorporating small grains with a cover crop in a long-term corn and soybean rotation has quickly benefitted soil structure after just one year.Now this example this this sorrows from A long term corn soybean rotation. Again that's going to be 50% lower as you. Lower as you crops in the rotation. And in essence what we've done is changes rotation just a year ago. We had a small greens intuit after being about twenty some years corn soybean rotation we had very played eat so structured here. In just one year of wheat. And then followed by a cover crap we have dramatically change SO structure. In just one year's time which is unbelievable.
Can this field be fixed? Crop Rotations
Jason Miller, NRCS conservation agronomist, shows how different crop rotations can influence soil health.church farm under the sole surface but for someone explained. The different crop rotations and how they influence the soil or the health of the soil. First off we have about this cornfield here. Is gonna be part of a rotation NS two thirds piracy crops can be a winner wheat corn field . So there's 67%. Higher as the crops. And another so are going to be looking at us from this field over here
Can this field be fixed? 67% High Residue
Jason Miller, NRCS conservation agronomist, shows how a rotation consisting of 67% high-residue crops. It’s positively changed soil structure and health.
Shallow Rooting System - Corn High Yield Team
Jack Marshall, a BASF technical representative, shows what a shallow rooting system looks like.We have a very shallow routing system in on this plant. It is round like we knew we would want to see guys spaced evenly. And we concede the
Mohawk Root System - Corn High Yield Team
Jack Marshall, a BASF technical representative, points out what a Mohawk root system looks like.normal field with a good root system. It may also exhibit some nutrient deficiencies because the plants are able to grow down. And they will deplete the nutrients in the routing is on the they're confined
Inspect Your Roots - Corn High Yield Team
Jack Marshall, a BASF technical representative, tells about some of the factors farmers can detect by doing summer root digs in their fields.to look at that you might need to. Changed your friend residue management options . Or. Tillage practices. Whether you've got deeper if you have deep roots that's where you wanna be. At a 35 degree angle going deep into the sub salt they gather moisture nutrients. Which is
Sudden Death Syndrome - Agronomy Insider
Steve Barnhart, regional agronomist for Winfield Solutions. Details how Sudden Death Syndrome started showing up last July in north-central Iowa.Yeah. Sudden death start showing up in Iowa about a week or two ago which was kind of early for the state usually it's. About the second or third week of August when we start to see it sometimes earlier. Earlier is of a concern. But what we're looking for and and we don't have any in this still that I can find right now but you start to look for crosses between these veins. When you get a yellowing between these veins right in here and all around the little brown spots they are large and get bigger than the mental state Kenny green. Chances are that sudden death there's there's several other diseases that have some similar symptom on the browns stem. Concern Moyles. Even even white mold sometimes we'll have that same look but that's they're a good place to start then the second thing you need to do is do. Pull up the plant. And sometimes with sudden death he'll have kind immigration blue mold again these plants do not have that than just a light grace blue area. So when you have significant damage you need to split that's plant like this and start looking at took care. And also the rear. Here the pits as healthy you know it's going to be quite to green. And so that's not round stammer if this cortex area this area out in here Sean just a little discoloration. So like that. If it's probably sudden death moving them.
Will Plants Tell Us They are in Danger?
I'm Casey birch wireless Cecil farming magazine agriculture dot com. Most of us are aware that plans are able to communicate either above ground through soil. But did you also know that there are able to sense there environments chemically. Well Jeff Schultz and his team at the University ofto exploit those unique abilities of planes. When plants is under a stressful situation . Or they're being attacked they're going to release a specific order. So shall this team has been partnering with some engineers to come up with a sensor that can go through the field in cents. I'm pretty specific voters and then they would be able to spot treats different plants. So let's say you have a soybean field that's being infested by a fifth. This sensor could go through the field and find plans that were being attacked by day smelling that and as for those specific voters. Then in theory you would be able to spot treat each plant that was being attacked before you'd ever reached thresh holds. This is going to be able to save you time money and it's also going to. Reduce the environmental impacts .
Are We In a Climate Change?
Crops Technology Editor, Gil Gullickson shares some of the facts about climate change. To learn more about climate change be sure to check out your October issue.Well this month's issue cover stories successful farming about climate change . No one thing about climate Jesus is important to remember that not ever figure out now and every cloud offers an on every blizzard in BP and the climate change . A case in point. A year ago in western South Dakota winter storm atlas prop 55 inches of snow at a very unexpected time in this state. 45000 have a life stuck here and it was just a freak storm. Some felt the chorus the university climate scientists think it'll research on it the could be in the climate change and the answer is no. Instead storms like this they can happen once every ten years. But supporter remember that individual events like this can't be paean to climate change instead climate change or something happens slowly over time. And patterns develop and ask you one free store or one free throw. Or 13. Rainfall where you get ten inches in a couple of hours he can't in that directly climate change . Now for more information and more background on the subject reader cover story in our two overshoot.
