California transplant boosts Alabama’s organic farming scene

Deep in the Heart of Dixie, a Southern California transplant is bringing organic produce and natural production practices to a part of the U.S. that is not known to be an organic stronghold.

  California growers face additional water cuts

With 60% of the state now in extreme drought conditions, state officials are warning water-right holders that they should expect more curtailments during peak irrigation season in June and July.


What's a Pre-Digested Organic Fertilizer?

Traditional organic fertilizers are simply blends of organic nutrients. When applied to soil, the plants rely on soil microbes to break down those nutrients to a simple form that the plants can eventually absorb.



Prevent and Treat Powdery and Downy Mildew

Identifying diseases in your crops is vital to protecting them as they grow to prevent loss and increase yield. Although the onset of disease is almost inevitable, the earlier growers can work on control, the better the outcome will be for healthy crops. How do you spot the signs and symptoms of powdery and downy mildew? Start with the basics of the diseases, think about the ideal conditions that cause the diseases, and determine the best methods for prevention and treatment.


Controlling weeds through tillage

I enjoy helping people kill weeds. Why? Not because of an ancient grudge or instinctual hate – there are times when weeds can be a protective skin that saves the land from the ravages from erosion – it’s just that weeds can stress farmers out, lower yields and make harvest more difficult. 

  USDA to help cover costs of organic, transitioning producers

Agricultural producers and handlers who are certified organic, along with producers and handlers who are transitioning to organic production, can now apply for the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Organic and Transitional Education and Certification Program (OTECP) and Organic Certification Cost Share Program (OCCSP).


Real-time data to drive daily decisions

You control what you can. But once you’re planted, the wild card of microclimate requires accurate, real-time, hyper-local weather and environmental data. Now, daily decisions will drive your success. Learn more in this special report from Davis Instruments.


Matching soil nutrients to crop demand

We can say that growing organic requires more nuance than chemical methods. Nowhere is this more true than in assuring the presence and availability of nutrients to our crop. Chemical growers can apply fertilizers that are both potent and water-soluble. And because synthetic fertilizers dissolve in water they are more quickly available to the plant (because plants drink their food).
