California is a prime location for craft brewers and microbreweries. However, fungi and disease susceptibility have made it difficult for many barley varieties (such as those used for the malt used in beer and whiskey production) to thrive in California’s Central Valley. Lynn Gallagher has spent twenty years developing disease and fungi resistant malting barley varieties. Working with UC Davis, USDA, and Ron Silberstein of Admiral Maltings, he and his team have tested hundreds of barley varieties for both agronomically valuable traits and malting quality. This episode, we talk with Lynn and Ron about what goes into malting, barley breeding, and the three tiers of testing malting barleys must undergo before finding their way into your favorite brew.

Boron is a unique micronutrient that is needed for the growth, reproductive development, and yield of crops. The need and function of B in the plant is well understood. As with all nutrient application, it is critical to consider how and when B is taken up by the plants, if the crop will remobilize any of the B in old plant parts to new plant parts, and how to apply B uniformly to the soil.

This session, developed in partnership with the American Seed Trade Association (ASTA), takes a fresh look at corn and soybean production practices for delivering high yields.

Today’s More Efficient Corn Hybrids
Along with their increased grain yield potential, today’s corn hybrids have greater capability to extract water and nutrients from the soil, thus making them more efficient. This presentation will focus on how this greater efficiency has changed how hybrids respond to management factors such as nitrogen fertilization and plant density.

An American Society of Agronomy webinar sponsored by The Nature Conservancy.

Cover crop adoption in the Midwest has significantly increased within the last decade. However, critical questions remain that relate to the impacts of cover crop management on nitrogen availability, cash crop production, and water quality. This webinar will share results on how next generation cover crop management influences both corn and soybean nitrogen uptake and production while advancing water quality. Application of these results in modern cropping systems will also be discussed.

The Red River Valley of North Dakota and Minnesota is a major sugarbeet production region in the United States. Due to conventional tillage practices, soils have less residue cover after sugarbeet harvest in the fall, and the soil is exposed to wind and water erosion. In the spring, severe damage due to wind blast of soil particles can cause sugarbeet stand loss. Cover crops have the potential to reduce the impacts of soil erosion and improve nutrient use efficiency. Interseeding cover crops before harvest increases the likelihood of cover crop establishment and growth.

In general, winter wheat yields are maximized when planted in October in Kentucky. However, it is common for wheat planting to be delayed until November due to limited resources, equipment problems, and/or weather conditions. Two agronomic strategies were investigated to determine whether either could mitigate yield reductions following delayed wheat planting: increased seeding rate and in-furrow phosphorus.

Many commodity groups, including those representing cotton, corn, soybeans, and rice, have set goals and made climate commitments that rely on the uptake and longevity of conservation practices by U.S. producers. Despite these efforts, adoption of two primary practices, cover crops and conservation tillage, remains low. In order for these goals to be met, change is going to have to happen much faster than the current pace.

Calcium is an important nutrient for all crops. Soil calcium concentration and availability to crops is influenced by pH, CEC, soil type, and the concentration of other minerals in the soil. The solubility of the calcium source is important to consider when making a calcium application. The source, rate, timing, placement, and environmental conditions must be considered to implement the 4Rs for improved plant performance, yield, and crop quality.

Can we reduce phosphorus (P) rates and loss to the environment by banding? The thinking goes that any system that places P fertilizer below the surface without significantly increasing soil erosion will reduce P losses to the environment. Can application rates be reduced? The short answer is “it depends.” Decades of related research have conflicting conclusions. It’s of particular interest due to fertilizer prices and because agriculture is in the hot seat to cut P and nitrogen (N) losses to water bodies. Efficiencies from banding phosphorus (P) do exist in corn at very low soil-test P levels, where cool or wet conditions limit root growth and nutrient uptake, and in soils that make applied P less available.

Stand establishment is the most difficult aspect of winter canola production in the Pacific Northwest. A method that has been tried by innovative producers is to plant canola using row spacings much wider than used for winter wheat. This allows wide shovel openers to move dry soil to the areas between the rows and creates a seed row that is shallow to moist soil, allowing the seed to be placed relatively shallow with a minimum of soil cover.

Most crops in northern climates benefit from a boost from phosphorus to get started. Previous studies have looked into whether manure could replace mineral phosphorus starter fertilizer in corn, but results have been iffy on how exactly to do this. Some research has even indicated manure can be detrimental to corn roots and growth. A new article published in Agronomy Journal confirms that manure can replace starter phosphorus fertilizer in corn, but farmers must be careful in where and how it’s applied.

Some questions most often asked by producers are, “What is changing in my soil when I adopt a management practice? How can I detect that change? and What does it mean for my yields?” These questions reveal our uncertainty in how we quantify changes in the soil and how we view the soil. More importantly, they give insight into what is important to producers for their operations. The current attention on soil health has revealed that we don’t completely understand how soil changes and what is required to determine what is changed in our soils. The focus of this article will be on what actually happens in the soil along the journey of change in corn and soybean systems in the upper Midwest.

While the threat of herbicide-resistant (HR) weeds continues to grow, many of the known prevention and mitigation practices have not been widely adopted by farmers. Is lack of knowledge the reason? Studies have shown that farmers do in fact know what is needed to control HR weeds but nonetheless do not always use these practices. In talking with producers directly, researchers have found that they have many reasons for not adopting integrated weed management practices.

As the cost of soybean seed increases, farmers are interested in reducing seeding rates. Variable-rate seeding (VRS) allows farmers to adjust seeding rates within a field by management zone, and many farmers practice VRS in soybean. However, without field validation, the accuracy of existing VRS practices is unknown. The objectives of this study were to: (a) determine the agronomic optimum seeding rate (AOSR) of soybean in predetermined management zones and (b) compare the AOSR to each farmer's standard VRS practice.

Obtaining an adequate plant stand is an important first step towards realizing the yield potential of cotton. The stand establishment phase of crop development involves a number of different processes and can be influenced by multiple factors, some that are within the grower’s control and some that are not. The current article starts with an overview of the germination and emergence phase of cotton development with an emphasis on key developmental events. Thereafter, it focuses on recent research conducted in Georgia that addresses the effects of seed characteristics, temperature conditions, and planter settings on stand establishment.

An American Society of Agronomy and Soil Science Society of America webinar sponsored by The Fertilizer Institute.

Different crops exhibit different sensitivity to copper (Cu) deficiency. Thus, criteria for the assessment of Cu deficiency vary by crop. Assessment of the Cu status of a soil can present challenges due to the spatial variability of Cu as well as interactions with other nutrients (e.g., manganese, boron, phosphorus). Furthermore, interpretation of Cu deficiency differs from that of macronutrients. Each of these aspects of Cu presents challenges for effective Cu management in crop production systems. This webinar will provide a brief description of the role of Cu in crop plants and will describe environments where Cu deficiencies can be common. The effectiveness of different fertilizer product types will be discussed.

Cover crops are crops grown between cash crops like corn, wheat, and soybean that provide valuable ecosystem services—or ecosystem benefits—to the surrounding crops and soils. With the rise of herbicide resistant weeds, however, cover crops are also finding new uses as a tool for weed suppression. Dr. Chris Proctor joins us this episode to discuss cover crops’ roles in weed suppression and how these valuable crops tie in with the larger picture of integrated pest management (IPM).

New research in Agronomy Journal underscores the importance of residual herbicides in controlling Palmer amaranth in soybeans. The study documented that residuals delayed the critical time of Palmer amaranth removal during seasons that were both wetter and drier than usual. This showed pre-emergence soil-applied residuals can buy producers significant time before post-emergence products may be needed to control weed populations, potentially yielding long-term benefits for herbicide resistance management.

In the Canadian Prairies, organic agriculture has traditionally relied on summer fallow and mechanical tillage for nutrient and pest management. More recently, there has been a substantial increase in the use of legume green manure, diversified crop rotations, and reduced tillage. The objectives of this study were to determine if diversified crop rotations and reduced tillage under organic management can maintain soil fertility and quality at adequate levels, keep weed populations at low levels, and foster healthy plants for sustainable and profitable production of annual crops.

Precision agriculture plays a large role for crop advisers and farmers when developing 4R nutrient management plans. Combining temporal and spatial yield data can help farmers and consultants manage areas of fields or farms based on their differences from farm average yield and variability to improve nutrient use efficiency. The development of tools that use an increasing number of data layers together—beyond only yield maps—is needed to improve the interpretation and implementation of data-intensive precision agriculture.

An American Society of Agronomy webinar sponsored by Verdesian Life Sciences

Carbon farming uses the principles of climate-smart agriculture: increasing productivity, providing resilience to climate change, and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. However, to increase soil carbon and reduce greenhouse gases, carbon farming requires no or low soil disturbance, continuous cover, and crop rotation diversity. A final aspect is the intensification of cropping systems. Every aspect of the system should be designed with a purpose. Cropping systems should be selected to meet economic needs, add residue back to the soil, and use perennial crops in the rotation. Cover crops should be selected for root diversity, nitrogen fixation potential, and nutrient recycling. This webinar will focus on methods and opportunities for building cropping systems that are climate resilient and provide environmental benefits.

An American Society of Agronomy and Soil Science Society of America webinar sponsored by Nutrien eKonomics.
Soybean yields are consistently increasing, with some grower yields approaching 100 bushels per acre or more. These high yields lead to greater plant nutrient demands. Legumes, like soybeans, generally meet their nitrogen needs by fixing nitrogen through a symbiotic bacterial relationship in nodules formed on the root structure. However, in high-yield environments, supplemental nitrogen may be required to reach maximum yield. This webinar will explore the concept of supplemental nitrogen fertilization in soybeans.

For the 2021 growing season, we had limited stored soil water and much below-average rainfall across the Northern Great Plains. As a result, crop yields were disastrously lower than normal, and the regional median residual soil nitrate-nitrogen after wheat was two to three times higher than the running average. This drought brings new light (and old memories) to soil testing for nitrogen along with new challenges and opportunities.

In Kentucky, the optimum planting window for soybean was mid-May to mid-June for more than 30 years. This is despite recent work indicating that April to May planting dates maximize seed yield. To determine the effect of planting date on seedling emergence and harvested plant population, seed yield, and yield loss/day when soybean are planted outside the optimum planting window, a maturity group (MG) II and a MG IV cultivar were planted between mid-April and early-July from 2006 to 2011.

An American Society of Agronomy webinar sponsored by Nufarm.

Managing herbicide-resistant weeds in major row crops has become progressively more challenging as the spread of resistance continues and the presence of weeds with resistance to multiple herbicide mode of action groups expands. The majority of these resistance problems are related to the use of post-emergence herbicides that have proven ineffective for the control of weeds such as horseweed (i.e., marestail), waterhemp, Palmer amaranth, and giant ragweed. A major challenge in crop production systems is controlling weeds that have emerged during the growing season. Thus there is a need to establish weed control early in the season using burndown technology, especially in no-till crop production systems. If a burndown herbicide application fails due to herbicide resistance and those weeds continue to grow after crop emergence, there are limited options for regaining control of resistant weed species for the remainder of the growing season. The use of overlapping and effective herbicide modes of action in the burndown application can establish initial control so that soil residual herbicides can be utilized successfully for weed management thereafter.

A series of Soil Science Society of America webinars produced in partnership with The Soil Health Institute and sponsored by The Walton Family Foundation.

Weighing the costs and benefits of soil health management practices is a primary concern for producers considering the adoption of such practices. However, the economic information needed for making data-driven, science-based decisions is difficult to find. Recognizing that cropping and operating systems, climate, and soils vary, the Soil Health Institute has done extensive research to develop partial budgets to fill the knowledge gap on the economics of soil health systems. Using data from more than 100 corn and soybean production partial budgets from across the United States, this webinar will provide an in-depth analysis of how cover cropping affects expenditures and management practices in reduced tillage systems. It will also discuss details on cover crop seed mixes, planting, and termination strategies.

Data from 100 farmers indicate increased net farm income as a result of adopting soil health practices. Soil health practices are marginal changes from conventional production methods with most seasonal activities and inputs remaining unchanged. Changes in management do require considerations for local soil and climate. Transitioning to soil health systems can be a gradual process, and it may take many years to achieve full benefits of reduced inputs and increased productivity.

Professional soil scientists’ analyses and opinions are increasingly needed and heard by land and water managers, regulators, and policymakers who are trying to solve difficult problems through effective decision making. The advice professional soil scientists provide is therefore both critical and influential. This webinar will discuss how professional soil scientists can use their skills to provide assistance and insights that are rooted in sound science and ethics. Four general themes will be discussed: (i) providing honest analyses for clients, (ii) practicing within the bounds of one’s expertise, (iii) providing timely and frank communication, and (iv) understanding and managing risk through clarity. Real-world, practical project examples will be provided to maximize understanding. By the end of the module, learners will have a better understanding of how their ethical calls affect outcomes for their organizations, their clients, and general society.

A Soil Science Society of America webinar partnering with the Soil and Water Conservation Society.

In an increasingly complex world, soils professionals are being called upon to provide interpretations to land developers, property owners, regulators, and policymakers who are trying to solve difficult problems that have serious economic impacts. This puts soils professionals in the position of making determinations that affect not only their own clients, but the environment and public health. Conflicting motivations may encourage some parties to steer soils professionals to conclusions that could benefit one party over another. This webinar will look at several case studies where a soils professional is dealing with these uncertain boundaries and trying to navigate the “gray areas”.

Nutrients are essential for plant and animal agriculture and comprise a large portion of its outputs. The starting point for assuring beneficial impacts is the adaptive management built into 4R Nutrient Stewardship. To manage adaptively means to evaluate impacts in your decision cycle. The metrics you evaluate need to reflect impacts important to your local farming system. Farther-reaching impacts of crop nutrition include water quality, air quality, carbon footprint, biodiversity, food security, human nutrition, farm livelihoods, and circularity. By better documenting the decision cycle, our current and past practices, and their relation to impacts, the industry has the opportunity to build public trust.

Research indicates that soil health management systems (SHMS) that incorporate reduced tillage and cover crops with the production of cash crops decrease soil erosion, improve water infiltration, increase soil carbon, and reduce inputs that have potential environmental externalities. Encouraging production practices that improve soil health includes demonstrating that farm profitability increases through SHMS adoption. Adoption of SHMS involves changes in select production activities—it is not an extensive substitution of one production system for an alternative production system. Partial budget analysis is a farm management analytical method in which comparative financial returns are determined by quantifying the net effect of proposed production changes. For example, converting from conventional tillage to no-till with cover crops eliminates field activities, thereby lowering costs. Planting cover crops leads to seed, planting, and termination expenses. However, other costs are reduced due to various cover crops benefits, including residue remaining on the soil from the previous production year. This partial budget methodology will be used to demonstrate procedures for quantifying changes in production costs associated with the adoption of SHMS. Additional discussions will address difficulties encountered when adopting SHMS and experiences of farmers managing these difficulties.

Because of growth in the craft brewing industry, farmers in the eastern United States are planting winter malting barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) to meet demands for locally sourced grain. However, given that barley is a relatively new crop in this region, basic agronomic information relating to stand assessment is needed. This is particularly relevant in this region, as climatic variability from extreme temperature fluctuations during the winter and spring can reduce a barley stand, creating the need for farmers to estimate grain yield potential. The objective of the research was to evaluate the relationship between spring stem counts, fractional green canopy cover (FGCC), and normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI) and barley grain yield.

An American Society of Agronomy and Soil Science Society of America webinar sponsored by Smart Nutrition MAP+MST

Sulfur supplementation has recently received greater interest from the crop production community. The growing desire to supplement sulfur is driven by decreased sulfur deposition from rainfall, increased yields for multiple crops, and lower sulfur content in phosphorus-containing fertilizers. Traditionally there have been only a few sulfur sources that producers have relied upon for their sulfur fertilization needs. Today there are more options available to farmers. This webinar will explore these options and compare new and traditional sulfur products.

Farmers need to collect, manage, communicate, and analyze many forms of data. This process presents a dynamic decision loop, ever-improving performance and learning through seasons and years of the farming enterprise. Farmers indicate that completing these decision loops by themselves is practically impossible due to lack of time and knowledge. A farmers’ network would give farmers access to the researchers who could help them navigate this process.

Faced with the daunting task of herbicide resistance management, Australian farmers developed various systems to target weed seeds during crop harvest. These systems are collectively called harvest weed seed control (HWSC). Despite being relatively unheard of in the U.S., currently more than 80% of Australian farmers practice HWSC. This article provides an overview of the six HWSC systems and the research conducted to date in U.S. cropping systems. This article also includes information for implementing HWSC, what weeds to target, potential costs, and where to find equipment.

In 2021, in the Corn Belt, rising corn prices fueled producer willingness to make “insurance” fungicide applications to hedge against possible yield losses from foliar disease. Newer disease risks—especially tar spot—also spurred some producers toward a more aggressive spray program. Market realities mean that “insurance” fungicide applications are likely to continue in 2022. But crop costs and returns will change, and CCAs should help their producers keep in mind corn fungicide fundamentals—even when sky-high prices may impact decision-making more than disease management fundamentals.

An American Society of Agronomy webinar sponsored by Verdesian Life Sciences.

The damaging effects of abiotic stress on plants at the molecular level will be discussed and a mechanism will be proposed to explain how these negative impacts can be effectively reversed through the modulation of gene expression. Sustainable mechanisms for tapping into the plant’s natural genetic potential without the need for genetic modification will be proposed as a solution for combating abiotic stress. The modulation of gene expression and concomitant increase in crop performance resulting from the application of naturally derived biologicals will be a key focus of this webinar.

Apple breeding can take a long time. Because it takes five to six years for each round of breeding to bear fruit, breeders can be waiting years, if not decades, to see the results of their hard work. Drs. Zoë Migicovsky and Carsten Pedersen are working to change that. By comparing the genetic and phenotypic (traits you can discern via the five senses) data of different apple varieties, Zoë and Carsten aim to pinpoint which genes are responsible for which traits, thereby speeding the breeding process.

An American Society of Agronomy webinar sponsored by Texas A&M AgriLife Research and Texas A&M AgriLife Extension.

Guar (Cyamopsis Tetragonoloba L.) is a heat-tolerant, drought-tolerant legume grown primarily in northwest India and Pakistan, but also in the semi-arid U.S. Southwest.  The grain of the crop contains a galactomannan “gum” that is used in industrial applications, especially oilfield fracking, as well as a minor food ingredient (emulsifier) and personal consumer products.  The agronomics of guar farming in the U.S. Southwest will be discussed.  The potential benefits of guar as a favorable rotational crop that can perform well in dryland cropping will be discussed.  In addition, the desirable traits of guar chemistry will be discussed and how these are advantageous particularly in oilfield service operations.

Herbicide application is a complex process that is often overlooked in weed management systems. Interactions between spray solutions, nozzles, carrier volumes, and other application parameters can drastically impact spray drift potential and its resulting biological effects. In today’s agriculture industry, it is necessary to maximize herbicide application effectiveness while minimizing off-target spray movement. To accomplish this goal, a good understanding of application processes and current application technologies is needed for both ground and aerial herbicide applications. This webinar will cover the ins and outs of ground and aerial herbicide applications, investigate the challenges of balancing drift management while maintaining high levels of weed control, and discover the role new application technologies can play in improving applications.

Low corn prices have farmers scrutinizing their nutrient dollar return on investment (ROI). A recent University of Nebraska–Lincoln study examines phosphorus (P) application level ROI in continuous corn over six years. The most cost-effective method of fertilizer P use proved to be a P-replacement approach with the P rate equal to the P removed from the previous harvest. The research also found that maintaining soil P availability levels above 25 ppm (Bray-1) wasn't justified.

The use of quantitative analytics for agricultural rating processes is crucial for many disciplines in agriculture. For example, agronomists, crop breeders, and agrochemical companies rely on precise and accurate statistical data to evaluate methods and technologies and gauge product performance in research and on-farm field trials. Field trials and plot-level statistics make agriculture efficient, profitable, and sustainable, ensuring that new products are proven to work. Scientific evidence is crucial for insuring effective agricultural techniques are developed for and adopted by the mass market. In this webinar, speakers from academia and industry will share how drone mapping can be used for field trial management and statistical analyses. This will be done using one of the oldest experimental fields in the United States—Sanborn Field.

An American Society of Agronomy and Soil Science Society of America webinar sponsored by SPECTRO Analytical.

Researchers and practitioners in agronomy and soil science improve the use and health of soil and increase the production of food and fiber through their field and laboratory work. This work often involves the analysis of soil, plant, and fertilizer samples. The quality of these analyses is vital for the work of these researchers and practitioners, the success of regulatory, commercial, university, and other laboratories, the sustainability of growers, and the conservation of soil and water resources. Recent technological improvements in inductively coupled plasma optical emission spectrometry (ICP-OES) analyzers have further enhanced the capabilities of these instruments to perform high-quality, cost-effective soil, plant, and fertilizer analyses. This webinar will detail these improvements, demonstrate how to choose an ICP-OES instrument, show how ICP-OES can improve throughput and cut costs, and discuss how ICP-OES can help researchers and practitioners in the field and laboratory.

Following winter wheat, there can be approximately a 90-day fallow period with no crop N uptake and autumn soil temperatures >50°F, leading to increased residual soil NO3–N availability. Opportunities exist for incorporation of cover crops to assimilate residual autumn soil N and reduce the potential for N loss. The objective of this study was to quantify daikon radish and forage oat cover crop biomass and N uptake, cover crop impact on soil NO3–N concentration, and corn growth, grain yield, and profitability responses to N placement and timing combinations following cover crops.

Intercropping is the practice of growing two or more crops at the same time. While putting two crops together usually means less yield for each crop, overall productivity is often increased due to complementary growth habits. A common metric for evaluating the impact of intercropping on overall productivity is the land equivalent ratio (LER). Field trials were conducted over the past three year to evaluate the primary factors controlling LER for pulse–oilseed intercrops in southern Alberta.

Integrated pest management (IPM) is a holistic approach that considers all farming practices and control tactics to discourage the development of economically damaging pest populations with a focus on preventing and managing pest populations as opposed to single interventions to eliminate pests once a problem has occurred. The idea of the IPM toolkit analogy is to keep as many tools in the toolbox as possible to manage agricultural pests; the more tools available, the better chance of providing a solution to a given pest threat. Preserving these tools is critically important to IPM. This article is the second in the three‐part series in Crops & Soils magazine. It is part of an American Society of Agronomy training series sponsored by the Kellogg Company.
