One of the main goals of the International Year of Soils is to raise awareness about the importance of soils for food security and nutrition. But what actions can we carry out to safeguard our soil...
In this connection researches of fertilizing ability of composts from various organic  components, including unconventional, in their influence on change of fertility and soil ecological conditions, a...
The change in soil moisture dynamics determines the irrigation regime and influences not only the biological processes which occur in the soil, but also the water provision of crops, and overall, th...
Efforts to increase the availability of sustainable development in natural resources worldwide are  consecutive and proliferated through the last decades. Sectors and divisions of many scientific  ...
Maize (Zea mays L.) is one of the most highly consumed  crops, and the most important foodstuff after wheat and  rice around the world. The global production of maize is 604 million tons, with a planting ...
Soil is one of the five resources—soil, water, air, plants, and animals—that NRCS deals with in resource planning. Soil is intimately related to the other four resources, and its condition can either ne...
About 25 years ago, I came to know about Effective Microorganisms and their use in agriculture, animal health and sanitation through a Japanese friend who visited my farm and also arranged to get literatur...
Crop health evaluation, as well as early detection of crop infestations, is critical in ensuring high agricultural productivity. Stress associated with, for example, moisture deficiencies, insects...
Weed control in no-tillage corn is often more difficult  than in conventionally tilled corn. As a general rule, herbicide effectiveness decreases with the amount of crop and weed debris on the soil...
While soil is a resource that can re-create itself, it is a very slow process. Unfortunately, soils have been and continue to be degraded at an alarming rate. Soil erosion is still the dominant caus...
Using predictive weather analytics to feed future generations By 2050, it’s expected that the world’s population will reach 9.2 billion people, 34 percent higher than today. Much of this growth wi...
There are at least five reasons to use strip-till. Without knowing why a producer wants or needs to strip till, they do not know which strip-till implement to purchase or how to operate it. There ar...
The adoption of a no-till feedgrain production system in a crop rotation with irrigated wheat production increases farm income, reduces underground water depletion, conserves energy, and reduces labo...
There is obviously a wide variety of no-till farming systems and so there is an equally wide variety of conventional tillage based agricultural systems. The use of herbicides is a common feature an...
Organic farming can be understood as an agricultural method, in which chemical fertilizers and pesticides are not used. It was introduced by Sir Albert Howard, recognized as the Father of Organic Farming...
Soil erosion depends on many factors: the erosivity of rainfall (mostly related to the intensity and duration of rainstorms), the erodibility of soils, the length and steepness of slopes, and managemen...
Late summer is one of the best opportunities for vegetable growers to establish a legume cover crop to supply the following year’s nitrogen needs. Planting in late summer allows time for the legume ...
Intensive agricultural systems demand the use of large quantities of mineral fertilizers in order to supply the plants with basic micro-elements, such as nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium.  In doing ...
Agriculture has changed dramatically, especially since the end of World War II. Food and fiber productivity soared due to new technologies, mechanization, increased chemical use, specialization and...
Different biotic factors such as predators, parasitoids and different pathogens affect the pests of cereals. Also affecting them are the abiotic factors temperature, rainfall, humidity, wind and sunshin...
