  • How to Simplify your Test Plots and Maximize Investments

    Remember the old days of running test plots? Stopping in the field to place marker flags and make the necessary changes. Then returning in the fall to — with any luck — find the flags and weigh each load. Not to mention the deskwork that followed to evaluate the results. And for me, with a full schedule that includes a 3,200-acre operation plus my wife and three kids, it wasn’t ...

  • Irrigation and Nutrition

    Mike, our Agronomist, was recently asked a few questions about irrigation and nutrition for a magazine.  What quality parameters can be influenced (fruit size, flavour, firmness, shelf life, etc.)? All crop quality parameters can be enhanced through correct use of nutrition. Having the ideal strength and balance of nutrients at all stages of the crop cycle ...

  • Micronutrient research using leaf area & photosynthesis rates to improve crop yields

    With the pressure to increase food production, every agricultural practice that can be optimized for improving crop yield is under scrutiny; therefore, micronutrients, which are important for crop health and growth, are receiving more attention. Agronomists are increasingly studying different treatment methods to establish the easiest and most cost-effective way to improve micronutrient ...

  • CO2 Foliar Spray Effects on Cannabis Growth (Hybrid Strain) Case Study

    Indoor use of C02 gassing has enhanced plant yields for over 60 years. However, over 50% of the C02 gas is typically lost through ventilation. Current greenhouse C02 gassing levels of up to 1500 PPM are also not ideal for worker health and safety. GRO's safer dissolved C02 foliar spray can be used by indoor and outdoor plant growers with minimal C02 gas lost and greater plant bioavailability ...

  • The Importance of Leaf Area Index (LAI) in Environmental and Crop Research

    Leaf Area Index (LAI), which is used as a measure in hundreds of studies on forests, crops, climate and the environment, is calculated as half the area of all leaves per unit area of ground. It is measured as the leaf area (m2 ) per ground area (m–2) and is unit-less. So, a plant with a LAI of 2 has an amount of leaves that can cover a given area two times. LAI is calculated for a plant or ...

  • Agricultural Knives: Thermal Spray Case Study III

    Since implementing our Thermal Spray Hard-face process, Kondex has been involved in numerous field test projects with its customers. The purpose of these tests is two-fold: •Set benchmarks for comparing Kondex technology to existing material/coating technology •Evaluate new material/coating technologies as a means of improving wear resistance and or improving the cost of agricultural ...

  • Agricultural Knives: Thermal Spray Case Study II

    Recently, Kondex was faced with a field testing requirement that the OEM was unable to execute for cost reasons, though it was critical to our ability to supply thermal sprayed cutting components for its combine harvester. A great deal of scrutiny is placed on cutting components utilizing thermal spray hardfacing; if the hardfacing process is not carried out properly, the cutting edge will lose ...

  • Agricultural Knives: Thermal Spray Case Study

    Adding thermal spray hard-facing to the cutting edge of an agricultural machinery knife is a tried-and-true method of extending the useful life of the product. However, not all thermal spray hard-facing is created equal, as we discovered when we went head-to-head with the competition. The Comparison. It’s common practice in this industry to test machine components under typical field ...

  • AutoSelect – nozzle change - on the go

    AutoSelect gives increased flexibility HARDI introduces an air-driven nozzle concept at Agromek 2016, where the sprayer driver can change between 2 nozzles or use both at the same time. You can use one type of drift reducing nozzle at the headland or at sensitive bufferzones   and a “conventional” FlatFan nozzle or low drift nozzle in the field. The sprayer ...

  • Maximising herbicide efficiency - Case Study

    The most important component in achieving an effective and efficient spray solution will always be the water source, so in hard water areas, using a good quality water conditioner is essential to prevent chemical breakdown and maximise herbicide performance. Around the country water can range from soft to hard and its pH can also vary depending on location. From Yorkshire down ...

  • Glyphosate-based herbicides on weeds management and maize performance under conservation agriculture practices in eastern Kenya

    A three-season research study was conducted at Embu Agricultural Research Station farm to determine the effect of glyphosate-based herbicides on weeds management and maize ( Zea mays L. ) performance under zero-tillage conservation agriculture practice. Glyphosate herbicide sprays were prepared from Roundup Turbo product at the rate of 2.5 L ha –1 and Roundup Weathermax at 1.5, 2.5 ...

  • Consolidation Roller Case Study

    James Simpson, WJC Simpson, Northamptonshire "We have had the Tillso rake for two years now and have found it even more useful than we would have imagined. Because of the very high black grass numbers we still make use of a stale seed bed to gain a chit of seeds. We tend to use a 2” shallow cultivation as our first pass to disturb slug eggs and encourage the ...

  • Lost in the Bee-Line

    Pesticides. Sprayed across vast expanses of farm land, they have become a ubiquitous part of industrial agriculture. But there may actually be more consequences to their use than we had previously predicted. A recent study headed by Chensheng Lu at Harvard University connects the rising phenomena of beehive abandonment, known as Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD), to the use of a family of pesticides ...

  • On combining vision-based hybrid classifiers for weeds detection in precision agriculture

    One objective in precision agriculture is to minimise the volume of herbicides that are applied to the fields through the use of site-specific weed management systems. This paper outlines an automatic computer vision system for the detection and differential spraying of Avena sterilis, a noxious weed growing in cereal crops. With such purpose we have designed a multiple hybrid decision making ...
