Roots are important to forage plants and to building soil health, but there is a lot more to them than what meets the eye.
Know when to invest in protein or in energy to meet a cow’s nutritional requirements during winter.
Researchers at Noble are exploring the potential for native small peptides to be applied as seed coatings to enhance plant growth and return carbon back to the soil. By studying the effects of these peptides, they expect to expand knowledge that will lead to building better native grasses and legumes and to supporting grazing in marginal soils with reduced fertility and water.
Discover surprising truths about beef and its impact on the environment, economy, our national history and your everyday life.
Collect white-tailed deer survey data with simple observations that you and other hunters make on your property.
Model organisms are used to study the basic biological functions of a more complex plant or animal.
Develop a cost-effective winter feeding program to meet a cow’s protein and energy requirements while saving money.
COVID-19 creates challenges for FFA and 4-H members who show livestock at youth shows, but Junior Beef Excellence Program continues to reward students.
Not all labs report the same information in a soil test, but most will report soil pH, any needed lime recommendations, and soil test phosphorus and potassium.
Researchers at Noble are developing tools to better understand how roots sense their environment, including the soil in which they grow. By studying calcium as a carrier of messages within the root, they expect to build knowledge that will lead to grazing lands that are more resilient to harsh environments.
