UF/IFAS researchers to study how to reduce carbon dioxide in ranch soil
University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences researchers hope to reduce possible pollutants emanating from soils in Florida cattle ranches by using a $710,000 federal grant to study soil microbes. In the new study, UF/IFAS researchers will use lab and field studies to investigate how pasture management and factors such as temperature and rainfall affect soil microbes. They’ll also look for genetic markers to get a glimpse into microbial identity. Genetic markers are genes or short...
Free Software Lets You Use HydraProbe to Determine Soil Water Retention Curve
The Soil Water Characteristics software is a hydraulic properties calculator, developed by the USDA and Washington State University. It estimates soil water tension, conductivity and water holding capability based on the soil texture, organic matter, gravel content, salinity, and compaction. The software is for Windows-based PCs and is available for free here. Read more
HydraProbe selected to be used in Canada’s RISMA Network for Agricultural Monitoring
A new study published in the Soil Science Society of America Journal investigated the field performance of 5 soil moisture instruments in heavy clay soils inthe RISMA network. The HydraProbe outperformed TDR and capacitance-based soil sensors in terms of stability and accuracy in Manitoba’s agricultural soil. Much of soil in the Canadian Prairie farmland is vertisolic. Soils with clayey (>60% clay content) glacio-lacustrine parent materials is characterized by high soil water holding capacity and low...
Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board Calls For Water Research Partnerships
The Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board (AHDB) has launched a new £1.5m initiative to address challenges identified across the UK agriculture and horticulture industries relating to the management of rotations, soil structure and water. The AHDB has combined funds from the potatoes, cereals and oilseeds, dairy and horticulture sectors, something that has provided the required investment power to support and sustain excellence in soil and water management research. AHDB is seeking research groups...
Eijkelkamp Agrisearch Equipment renamed Eijkelkamp Soil & Water
From 24th July 2015, we are called Eijkelkamp Soil & Water. With this a name, which clearly reflects where our focus lies, we intend to expand into a preferred global supplier of solutions for soil and water research, such as smart sensoring. A new name deserves a new logo. A modern logo encompassing our incredible pride at receiving the designation `Royal` (Royal Eijkelkamp) and the colour orange, which represents the Netherlands worldwide as a water and soil country. The new logo will also create a uniform...
