What Consumers Should Know About Farmers & Sustainability

Posted by Agricen

Jeff Frank, a fourth generation farmer from Auburn, Iowa, grows corn and soybeans on a 1,200-acre century farm that he and his wife operate. He is an avid drone enthusiast and dealer (hear him speak more about drones and farming in this video), sits on the board of directors of his local Farm Bureau, is currently a candidate for the Iowa Soybean Association board of directors, and recently converted his barn over to a new coffee roasting endeavor. You may also remember Jeff from last year’s farming film, Prove It to Me.

Three Considerations in Agriculture for the 2016 Growing Season

Posted by Agricen

Following on the heels of two years’ worth of record setting crop yields, pressure is at an all-time high for growers this year. What trends in agriculture can we expect to see, and what can growers do to ensure the best possible outcome in 2016?

A Transition to La Niña?

Weather patterns La Niña and El Niño can have a profound impact on the outcome of a growing season. With El Niño events regularly outnumbering La Niña, climatologists are unsure whether 2016 will see a transition. La Niña conditions often bring less precipitation and a reversing of annual weather patterns with a cooler than average Northern climate and warmer than average weather in the South and Midwest. Thankfully, widespread rainfall this past December and January should set the stage for good early season moisture and planting conditions going into this year’s crop.

A Closer Look at Biostimulants for Agriculture and Horticulture

Posted by Agricen

By Brian Cornelious, PhD, Director of Applied Sciences

The biostimulant industry today is improving agricultural sustainability and soil health while generating significant new economic growth. This growth is being driven by the need to produce more food for a growing world population, and to do so more sustainably in response to demands from consumers, advocacy groups, and regulators.

Advancing the Next Generation of Biologically Sourced Tools

Posted by Agricen

This is Part 5 in our five-part series about sustainable growing practices and how they are changing agriculture. Read other parts of this series: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4.

We started this blog series by highlighting the fact that crop yields will need to increase substantially to meet growing global needs. We learned that growers are facing increased demands to incorporate more sustainable practices into their operations. We also know that growers are seeking ways to enhance the efficiency of their fertilizers, so that they can increase yields more cost effectively and sustainably.

Biologically Sourced Tools in Plant Nutrition Need a New Appraisal

Posted by Agricen

This is Part 3 in our five-part series about sustainable growing practices and how they are changing agriculture. 

For thousands of years, the world regarded the act of growing a plant in the soil as a biological process. But—as in all systems—the need for scalability to meet growing demands called for new, more efficient technologies to improve food production.
