Following these steps should help you develop a better nutrient management program through use of soil testing.
The spring growing season is at hand. Therefore, it is time to develop management plans for our warm season pastures.
Adequate nitrogen is necessary for optimizing winter pasture production. One consideration for providing adequate nitrogen is to maximize nitrogen use efficiency (NUE). One way to improve NUE is to apply nitrogen during the late winter as a topdress application.
A few of the benefits of sod-seeding small grain winter pasture include providing high quality forage during the winter months, providing additional forage production during the warm-season grass's dormant season and potentially reducing the need for winter supplementation.
There are many varieties of bermudagrass, and they respond to nitrogen fertilizer in different ways. A research study was conducted to see if fertilizer could be used more efficiently by fertilizing different varieties to their optimum response rate.
Native grass plantings are of increased interest to producers. The pros relative to introduced perennial pasture grasses are noteworthy.
Justus von Liebig's Law of the Minimum is an agronomic theory that states yield is proportional to the amount of the most limiting nutrient - whichever nutrient it may be.
In response to limited information about the economic potential of grazing novel versus toxic tall fescue, a collaborative study between the Noble Research Institute and the University of Arkansas was conducted.
Traditional soil test methods have typically involved treating a soil sample with various acids and other reagents to extract a portion of the inorganic nutrients in the soil. This can hopefully be done with as few processes as possible to be fast and cheap, and fit the industrial model.
The price of fertilizer has been on the rise, and old rules of thumb can no longer be used with today's high fertilizer and cattle prices.
