The Noble Research Institute will host a Managing Soil Nutrients for Pastures and Hayfields seminar from 1-4 p.m. Tuesday, March 5, 2019, at the Noble Research Institute Kruse Auditorium.
One of the greatest challenges facing agriculture is economic uncertainty. Farmers and ranchers can mitigate economic risk by building resiliency in their operations, and Noble research aims to help.
Since there is economic risk in applying fertilizer, we generally do not recommend applying fertilizer unless there is a significant advantage to doing so. Therefore, the general recommendation of not fertilizing native grass is correct in most instances.
Scientists are working to improve plants and offer other solutions so that farmers and ranchers don’t need as much synthetic nitrogen fertilizer.
Noble scientists are using the gene editing technique CRISPR to improve legume cover crops.
The Noble Research Institute is screening natural diversity for root traits in crop and pasture species. With new knowledge, breeding programs can release cultivars with improved root systems.
Research using model species leads to fundamental discoveries in biology, and this holds true of our favorite model legume Medicago truncatula as well. Here’s a roundup of three noteworthy lessons we learned last year from international groups working on Medicago.
