In this episode of Frankly Speaking we chat with Professor Bruce Branham from the University of Illinois about organic and synthetic nitrogen and the role each might play in development and persistence of organic matter. How this might influence your fertilizer program and the long term impacts on soil health.
In this episode I Speak Frankly with Professor Bill Kreuser from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln about his work with PGRs (rates, frequency, etc), pigments, and his take on using growth potential to schedule fertilizer programs.
in The Bible
Let's learn how to maintain the fruit on our trees! This part of this lesson on the fruit of the Spirit deals with the use of fertilizer. This could get dirty and smelly
“The science of vermiculture is not new, but our guest today has taken it to a whole new level with his organic, eco-friendly and sustainable products that make growing green easy to do. Join us as we chat with Steven Devloo, CEO & Founder of Earthworm Technologies to discuss how he’s transforming the organic fertilizer industry right down to it’s bio-degradable packaging and locally sourced materials.”
So, your herbs have been growing for a while in the spring sunshine... what now? Should you fertilize them? Can you cut them back yet? What can you do, to help them keep thriving all summer long? (Oh, and while we're asking question, what's for supper?
Short answer: It Depends! Click on in, for details... ;)
So I am having this nightmare. It goes like this.
I am 30 years older -- which means I'm well into my 80s. I'm standing there with my cane, drooling saying “I told you so.”
The next moment I become fertilizer spread all over the ground to grow new plants for biofuels for your grandchildren.
OK it's really not a nightmare. I saw this during the daytime. No I wasn't drinking. I was reading and watching television news. This is the same nightmare -- or terror -- all of us -- who are over 48 years old -- will be facing soon.
I saw this while watching the news coverage of the special election in Florida in Pinellas County. The cable news stations -- MSNBC and FOX News -- spent all their time analyzing who who won and who lost and why. As usual, they missed the real story. The real loser was America. The election was a so-called referendum on Obamacare. It should have been a referendum on Medicare.
No candidate, political analyst, or campaign ad, even mentioned the Tsunami of debt that is coming our way in six years -- thanks to the entitlement crisis from Social Security, Medicaid, and Medicare. Obamacare is not the problem here. It is also not the solution either.
Read the latest CBO report on entitlements and what they're going to do to our economy very soon. Very soon means 5 to 6 years. That's when people, the baby boomers 48 and older right now, really start retiring in even bigger numbers. Those numbers of retirees -- and the promises they were made on what they're going to get for their medical coverage -- cannot be met mathematically.
To get another glimpse, look at the pension crisis in cities like Detroit, Michigan or Central Falls, Rhode Island. Those retirees were supposed to get checks worth 20,000 $30,000 a year.
In this podcast Dr. Curtis Livesay covers the USDA's June 1st, 2015, Crop Progress Report and then briefly discusses a new video on some sugar trials from the Nebraska On-Farm Network. Next, we check in with two VERY well known Dynamite Grower Correspondents: 24 time NCGA champ and 300 bushel club member, Jerry Cox, and 3 time World Record Soybean Grower and 300 bushel club member, Kip Cullers. The main segment in this episode is dedicated to understanding resource competition between crops and weeds. Dr. Livesay interviews Dr. Laura Lindsey from The Ohio State University about her research on weed/crop competition for Nitrogen. In the episode we'll talk in-depth about the use of sugar in row crop production.
Pasture raised, organic grass fed beef is the meat of the moment! They claim that it is a healthier choice of meat than its grain-fed counterpart. However, it also commands a much higher price per lb. Many consumers would like to eat healthier but shy away from the sky high prices that makes grass fed beef such an elitist food.
Many of our clients want to know, “If I am going to spend that kind of money… is it really worth it?”
Advocates claim a trifecta of advantages: Grass-fed beef is simply better for you, better for the animal and better for the planet.
So, is it?
Today Dr. Budweiser, founder of Weiser Living, will discuss the difference between CAFO (Confined Animal Feeding Operation) beef and organic pasture raised grass fed beef and whether that price per lb really is worth it or not.
Some of the points he will cover are:
The History Of Beef

Better For The Cow!
A Cow's Natural Diet
What Exactly Is A CAFO?
The CAFO Diet & The Health Implications For The Cow

Population growth combined with potential inflationary effects could lead to increased demand for food. Increasing populations with declining arable land per capita will force farmers to boost yield using the key ingredient potash. There is a limited supply of potash which is controlled by only a few companies. These players are trading at half their all time highs set back in 2008. I believe that we may be near the bottom in this sector and investors may do well over the next few years. I expect prices to rise later this year as the large giants have already signed contracts with China and India. Other players may have to look elsewhere.
Potash or potassium salts are amazing fertilizers. They make the plant stronger and improves output. Potash helps the physical condition of the crop boosting vitality. It helps a plant's immunity to withstand drought, infection and parasites. Do not forget that potash is also used in drilling, building materials, paper, pharmaceuticals and other products.
