Allen Williams and the Understanding Ag team will discuss key adaptive grazing tips for a successful 2020 grazing season. Getting started right is crucial to the productivity of the entire season. We will help you get started on the right foot by optimizing forage availability, biomass production, animal performance, and net profitability.
Plants extract nutrients from soil microorganisms (mostly bacteria) in roots through a process known as the “rhizophagy cycle.” But how and why does this exchange occur? In an upcoming Understanding Ag webinar, Rutgers University Professor James Francis White, Jr., Ph.D., will share his research and insights on how plants cultivate soil microbes and acquire nutrients from them through this fascinating process. “By learning more about the ‘rhizophagy cycle,’ farmers will learn why it’s important to create and maintain healthy soils with a diverse soil microbial community,” White says.“Plants obtain nutrients from soil microbes, so soils should be managed to retain a healthy microbial community,” he says. “Seeds should not be treated in any way that reduced microbes on seed surfaces and microbes themselves may be used to manage diseases of crops.”Join us for an intriguing look into this remarkable underground exchange that will provide even more incentives for you to care for your nutrient-delivering, microbial business partners.
Lance Gunderson, ReGen Ag Lab, will explain the importance of proper soil testing, including which tests to take, when and how to take them. By following the protocol that Lance will outline farmers will be able to make informed decisions as to the nutrient needs of their crops. These informed decisions give farmers the opportunity to save considerable money on their nutrient costs. We encourage all farmers, ranchers and gardeners to watch this webinar.
