  • What is humic acid and what is humic acid organic fertilizer?

    Humic acid is a kind of water-insoluble polymer organic acid polymer with aromatic core as the main body and various functional groups. It includes humic acid (black humic acid + brown humic acid) and fulvic acid (yellow humic acid). Humic acid widely exists in nature and is an important part of soil organic matter. It combines with ammonium, sodium, potassium and other monovalent alkali metals ...

  • Managing Moisture: Navigating Drydown Decisions

    This season has been, without a doubt, one of the wettest since 2009. In many states, the excessive rain led to flooding and late planting. On my family farm in North Central Iowa, like on many farms throughout the Corn Belt, it was so wet that we couldn’t get into the field to plant on schedule. And the continued wet weather means that now high and variable grain moisture levels are ...

  • Important to know what`s going on in the slabs

    Daily measurements of the slab by hand meter give essential information on what is going on in the slabs. This is important to confirm the readings of any fixed sensors and to show the standard deviation across the glasshouse. This data will give more potential control over the crop to increase yield and quality as well as more efficient use of water and fertilisers. The substrate manufacturer ...

  • Making Better Herbicide Decisions with Weed Density Mapping

    Proper weed control early during the growing season is essential for reducing nutrient competition, gaining optimal crop health, and preventing yield loss. Weed management in corn and soybeans can be an extremely difficult problem to tackle and, if left unmanaged, can cause nearly a 52% corn yield loss and 49% yield loss in soybeans according to research conducted by the  ...

  • Modern Miracles

    When a technology comes along that unlocks a new way of thinking about an old problem, we marvel at it as a “modern miracle.” Growing up in Ireland, I know that memories of the Great Potato Famine still run deep. Today, Irish farmers know how fungicides have helped ensure that potato late blight remains a distant memory. Agriculture has come a long way since the nineteenth ...

  • Reduced soil tilling helps both soils and yields

    Agriculture degrades over 24 million acres of fertile soil every year, raising concerns about meeting the rising global demand for food. But a simple farming practice born from the 1930's Dust Bowl could provide a solution, according to new Stanford research. The study, published Dec. 6 in Environmental Research Letters, shows that Midwest farmers who reduced how much they overturned the ...
