Reports have been coming in of rill erosion in crop fields. In some cases these rills are transformed into gullies. These fields may be in previously tilled or no-till […]

  • Is Nitrogen-Fixing Corn the Future?

    Nutrient-rich soils spoil corn—in fact, so much nitrogen is present in the soil, a function that would have made microbes fixate corn nitrogen has shut off. Ever since, farmers have applied ton after ton of nitrogen to the soil to ensure hybrids perform to their potential. “Fertilizer is the lifeblood of which yields can be […]

  • Corn Silage Showing High Levels of Mycotoxins

    Corn silage samples from across the country are showing extremely high levels of mycotoxins, particularly deoxynivalenol (DON), type A trichothecenes (T-2), fusaric acid and fumonisin. That’s according to samples analyzed by Alltech. Corn crops grown in mono-cropping, reduced or no-till systems seem particularly vulnerable. Barlage and haylage samples are also showing multiple mycotoxins this year, […]
