  • New hand-held grain moisture tester available from John Deere

    To help producers more accurately monitor the condition of their grain during harvest and in storage, John Deere introduces the GT-30300 Grain Moisture Tester. This new hand-held device provides direct readout of moisture and test weight for 20 different grains in seconds, without pre-weighing the samples, at the touch of a button. According to Barry Deiters, product manager with John Deere ...

  • High temperatures `make wheat old before its time`

    Global warming can cause premature ageing in wheat, according to computer modelling studies of the crop's response to growing conditions in northern India. The effects of warming on wheat growth and grain size are far worse than previous crop models indicated, David Lobell, assistant professor in ...

  • Heat and Drought Ravage U.S. Crop Prospects—Global Stocks Suffer

    September estimates from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) show 2012 U.S. corn yields at 123 bushels per acre, down by a fourth from the 2009 high of 165 bushels per acre. Yields are the lowest since 1995 and well below the average of the last 30 years. The summer heat and drought also hit U.S. soybean yields, which are down 20 ...

  • SA growers advised to monitor crops as stem rust emerges

    South Australian grain producers are encouraged to closely monitor wheat crops following the emergence of both stem and leaf rust on the West Coast and in the Lower North. Stem rust has been found in an area of about 16 kilometres in diameter near Kalanbi, north-west of Ceduna. Crops of Yitpi have been mostly affected. SARDI senior plant pathologist Dr Hugh Wallwork said that a single infected ...

  • Night warming threatens rice output in Asia

    Hotter nights arising from climate change will put a brake on the rise in rice production in Asia over the coming decades, with the effect worsening as the century progresses, scientists said yesterday (9 August). The first study to use 'real-world' data from farmer-managed rice farms has shown that, while hotter days may boost productivity, hotter nights more than compensate by reducing it. ...

  • Crop performance matters when evaluating GHGs

    Measuring the emission of greenhouse gases from croplands should take into account the crops themselves. That’s the conclusion of a study in the September-October issue of the Journal of Environmental Quality, which examined the impact of farm practices such as tillage on the greenhouse gas, nitrous oxide (N2O). Expressing emissions per unit of crop yield rather than on a more conventional ...

  • 10 Things to know about food on World Food Day

    October 16 is World Food Day. It offers the opportunity to strengthen national and international solidarity in the fight to end hunger, malnutrition, and poverty. With falling water tables, eroding soils, and rising temperatures making it difficult to feed growing populations, control of arable land and water resources is moving to center stage in the global struggle for food security. Here ...

  • Can one-time tillage improve no-till?

    A one-time tillage has no adverse effects on yield or soil properties on no-till land, according to field research conducted at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Although tillage is another expense for farmers and generally increases the risk of soil erosion, a one-time tillage may be performed to correct some problem, such as a perennial weed problem. The feasibility study was conducted for ...

  • Winter Wheat Harvest Woes

    Wheat harvest season is well underway for many U.S. wheat growers. Some of the first soft-red wheat harvested by U.S. farmers in 2015 is the worst in at least 17 years, according to Bloomberg and other sources. This year’s heavy rainfalls  – up to three times ...

  • An Indian Summer – A Great Apple Harvest and Cone Bottom Tanks For Cider Production

    Although we’ve heard it all before, this year, we might just be in for that ‘Indian Summer’ we get promised almost every year. A hot summer was predicted and did indeed happen and, according to the Daily Mail, temperatures will be higher than average for the next three months. Forecasters are predicting an Indian summer throughout September and October. Dry and brighter ...

  • Climate’s threat to wheat is rising by degrees

    Climate change threatens dramatic price fluctuations in the price of wheat and potential civil unrest because yields of one of the world’s most important staple foods are badly affected by temperature rise. An international consortium of scientists have been testing wheat crops in laboratory and field trials in many areas of the world in changing climate conditions and discovered that ...

  • Ohio State Expert: Cold Snap Could Injure Wheat Depending on Its Growth Stage

    Thanks to last month’s warmer-than-normal temperatures that sped up the growth of wheat crops across Ohio, this week’s cold snap could result in injury for some of those plants. Just how damaging the colder weather will be depends on how advanced the wheat is in its growth stage, said Laura Lindsey, a soybean and small grains specialist with Ohio State University Extension. ...

  • Rice Processing steps: From Pre-planting to Postproduction

    Rice, which is harvested each year with 154 million ha, is the most common grain as well as the most popular food in the world. Human consumption accounts for 85% of total production for rice, compared with 72% for wheat and 19% for maize. In addition, rice is the the most important crop for many of small farmers who grow it throughout the world, and the source of so many landless ...

  • New crop of plant scientists emerges at CSIRO

    Under the CSIRO Plant Industry Summer Student Program, 17 students are engaged in a range of important agricultural research projects designed to discover, for example, how high temperatures affect crops and the genetic bases of crop development.

  • Preventing soil erosion in continuous corn

    With recent increase in the cost of energy and subsequent explorations into alternative energy sources, the increased harvest of corn residue for cellulosic ethanol production is likely in the future. This may be especially true in fields where corn is grown continuously, in part because perennially high residue amounts favor annual harvests, and also because corn residue left on the soil surface ...
