Chloride (Cl) is a highly mobile nutrient in soils and topdressing is typically a good time for application, especially in regions with sufficient precipitation or with coarse-textured soils are prone to leaching, says Kansas State University Extension.
Technology originally designed for space exploration shows some promise for providing critical evapotransporation data that could serve farmers in semi-arid environments. Can it save agriculture’s water supplies in the West?
Recent research at Kansas State University has confirmed farmers' claims of Palmer amaranth being resistant to 2,4-D and dicamba — the first confirmed case of resistance to these herbicides, says Iowa State University Extension.
SARE’s new infographic, "What is Soil Health?", explores how sustainable management practices impact soil structure, water holding capacity and erosion while increasing the resilience and profitability of the entire system.
A speaker at No-till on the Plains shares some fascinating information about quorum sensing and its potential to harness the power of microbes to improve water retention in soils and produce food of higher nutritional quality.
Development of a cotton plant with stronger natural defenses due to a greater gland density and thus more gossypol in the leaves could soon be a reality, according to a Texas A&M AgriLife Research plant biotechnologist in College Station.
A new, pioneering forage wheat model could provide a valuable technique to researchers exploring the potential of biomass production for cool-season annual forage grasses, according to model developers at Texas A&M AgriLife Extension.
University of Nebraska Extension says growers may want to consider diversifying traditional corn-and-soybean rotations with a more diverse rotation of field pea followed by cover crops, forages or short-season crops to increase agronomic sustainability and spread financial risk.
Finding solutions to the problems farmers face is what inspired Harry and Etta Yetter to open a small machine shop in west central Illinois in the 1930s. Today, four generations later, Yetter continues the tradition of solving agricultural problems to meet the needs of producers all over the world.
Needham Ag understands the role of technology in making better use of limited resources within a specific environment by drawing on a wealth of global experience to overcome the challenges facing today's farmers, manufacturers and dealers.
