#soilfertility

Super happy with this weekends results! We did quite a bit of planting as we are busy collecting more supplies for the rest of the garden! We used the root we dug up as a structure for the grape to grow up as well as green beans! #foodforestadventure #garden #capetown #food #growyourown #permaculturedesign #soilfertility #hugelkultur #rainharvesting #green #fruit #herbs #veggies
Bales of hay made from Brachiaria grass, as fodder for cows in Kenya. The grass is relatively new in East Africa, originating from South America, and is drought tolerant, performs on low fertile soils, reduces greenhouse gas emissions, helps in soil conservation and has high biomass production potential #future #fodder #foddersystem #cattle #cows #goats #kenya #smallscale #kirinyaga #county #mtkenya #production #productivity #selfsufficient #soilfertility #greenisthenewgold
Terra Preta is a super fertile black soil founded in the Amazon Basin. It owns its color to a mixture of charcoal, bone, compost, manure, plant residual and broken potteries that make fertile the otherwise unfertile Amazonian soil by binding and retaining minerals and nutrients. This powerful soil has been created by farmers 7,000 years ago and it still works perfectly.

Every season we try to grow something that we hadn't grown before. This season, we picked #kohlrabi and it's starting to show it's beautiful self! If you haven't had kohlrabi before, pick some up next time you see it. You can eat the leaves attached raw or cooked like any greens. The smaller bulbs tend to be more tender and flavorful, but the large ones are also fine for cooking and eating. In taste and texture, kohlrabi reminds me of peeled broccoli stems with a bit of peppery radish thrown in. °

Wood chip pile the size of a house. Wood chips can be used to soak up nitrogen and are being used by large scale agriculture corperations to reduce the nitrogen content in farm runoff, this prevents that excess amount of nitrogen from going into the waterways and causing negative enviromental impacts. They do this by denitrifying bioreactors on the farms and this process reduces nitrogen pollution in water flowing off of the farm by anywhere from 15 percent to over 90 percent.

nicandra physalodes
.
Weed residues can influence nutrient cycling in agroecosystems. Quantifying this potential nutrient source may influence weed control and fertilisation practices. Nicandra physalodes (L.) Gaertn. is a weed with a short life cycle and a great ability to accumulate dry matter. Field observations suggest that N. physaloides residues are easily decomposed in soil. The objective of this study was to evaluate the effect of increasing of N, P and K doses on the growth of N. physalodes, as well as the nutrient content, chemical characteristics and C/N ratio of the weed. A randomised block design, arranged in split-plot with three replications, was utilised. The main plots were given four doses of NPK (Dose 1 - 0, 0.3 and 17.2 mg dm-3; Dose 2 - 30, 450.3 and 75.4 mg dm-3; Dose 3 - 60, 900.3 and 133.4 mg dm-3; and Dose 4 - 120, 1800.3 and 249.68 mg dm-3), and the subplots were harvested at ten time points after emergence (26, 33, 40, 47, 54, 61, 76, 91, 106 and 121 days). Higher dry matter production and N, P and K content were observed in plants grown on higher levels of fertiliser. The increase of N, P and K levels in the soil resulted in greater total accumulation of these macronutrients. The highest macronutrient contents were K and N. The treatments did not affect neutral detergent fibre (NDF), acid detergent fibre (ADF) and C/N ratio of plant. N. physalodes had low C/N ratio, low NDF and ADF levels, and great nutrient accumulation, suggesting that this plant is quickly decomposed, providing a rapid cycling of nutrients.

Sharing is caring and oh, do we love to share our harvests with our human friends and our non-human ones. By letting some of our plants go to seed in this case broccoli, we nurture the way plants come to an end by also providing beautiful blooms for our hardworking bees. Once these blooms dry out, we can then harvest the seeds for a new season of growth. Did you know that these beautiful clusters of yellow blooms are edible? Their scent is very mild and has more of a vegetal aroma rather than floral. Broccoli flowers have a flavor reminiscent of broccoli leaves, peppery with a sweet honeyed finish. °

Agronomy should be science applied practically so farmers get the most out of their valuable resources🌱

Knowing the texture of your soil is one way to start👐

Besides, who doesn't love a good flow chart⁉

Especially when it's about soil ribbon testing😉

Here's a link to find more information from the NRCS to find out more

Just do it. Test your food plot soil. While you’re out on your hunting land searching for sheds, doing habitat work or scouting turkeys, collect samples from all your food plots and find out what they need before another fall food plot season sneaks up on you again. Without testing, you are flying blind on fertility.

You know you're a garden geek when you read books about soil for fun. I recommend this book.

A couple of weeks ago I posted about how a grower can learn more about the soil they are working with by identifying the type and texture. When I do a farm visit one of the most important things I do is walk fields picking up and feeling the soil

I decided to try it to my own garden🌱

Head over to The Accidental Agronomist Facebook page ⬆Link in Bio⬆ for a great resource on how to do an in-field soil ribbon test to start and determine the texture of your soil

Ede Lajarubabu, from Krishna district, #AndhraPradesh, owns 6 acres of farmland on which he cultivates paddy and pulses. He has been using #RelianceFoundation ’s advisories regularly to optimise his farming.
An #RF organized awareness programme on soil testing helped him gain better insight on the fertility of his soil and the major reasons for pest and disease attacks on crops. RF’s inputs on cattle rearing, regular weather forecasts and various government schemes are also of tremendous help to him.
When his paddy crop was infected with BPH and Sheath Blight, he used RF’s toll free helpline to connect with an agricultural expert. He was advised to spray a mixture of Kantaff and Acephate to control the infestation. This cost effective solution saved him from a loss of Rs.7,000.
From seed selection and land preparation to harvesting and post-harvesting, RF information services have helped him make his farming more efficient and profitable.

People ask me how I can work with so many different types of farmers, growers, and producers.
Here's the deal-

Agronomy is a universal language spoken between the soil and the plant. It has nothing to do with us other than we either profit from it or get in the way.
True agronomy doesn't differentiate between a flower farmer, dairy farmer, mixed vegetable farm, or backyard gardener. We do.
The actual science or practice of agronomy doesn't even differentiate between all the different types of farming. We do.
Agronomy is merely the management of soil and crops. No matter what soil or what crop.
I can work with any type of soil and any kind of plant because I understand them more than I understand most people.

Read more about what agronomy means to me at weeks 1 and 7 in the news section link in bio⬆

Tell me what you think agronomy is and what it means to you
@SoilAssociation looks at ways #farmers are investing in their #soil. 'Digging the Dirt on Curlew Call Farm' focuses on Jonathan Boaz, an #arable farmer in the West Midlands who believes in boosting #organic matter largely through using green manures & #grass leys. It describes how he uses grass leys to help suppress #blackgrass, reduce inputs, and get good cash returns; his endeavours in ensuring he has a long period of soil fertility built in to his rotation; his use of minimum #tillage, #compost and #farmyard manure (and the impact on beneficial soil organisms); and the soil health / fertility benefits he sees from incorporating #livestock in to his farming system.

"Denise O'Brien"
While at Organic Commodities & Livestock Conference I got to chat with one of the keynote speakers, Denise O'Brien, an Iowan farmer who has been farming organic produce for over 40 years with her husband. Denise founded the Women Food and Agriculture Network, is the Board President for the Pest Action Network, and much more... Seriously, just Google her, you'll see.
~
What I appreciated the most about her views was that they were always selfless. Her thoughts always went back to the greater good of the land, its ecology, and the humans who depend on it. That's the beauty of organic farming; it's about remembering that the longevity of man is dependent on the longevity of our soil.
~
It was a real honor to just listen to what she had to say about organic farming.
It's always good to meet people like myself who know a lot and have a lot to say and maybe sometimes ramble because they know so much, haha!
~
Thanks, @carolinafarms for inviting Denise and putting on such a great conference!

There is no single right answer to the best Phosphate (P) levels in #soil for organic farming. It is important to monitor the P availability over time in rotations through the combined use of soil analysis, #plant analysis and nutrient budgeting.

You can improve availability of P from soil reserves to crops by:​ 👉🏼Maximising #crop root penetration through good soil structure and minimal compaction.
👉🏼Growing crops and green #manures that have the potential to solubilise P in the rotation.
👉🏼Focus on increasing soil biological activity and therefore the mineralisation of organic P.
👉🏼Designing rotations that will provide the right conditions to promote arbuscular #mycorrhizal associations with crops; by minimising fallows and ensuring host crops are present.

With a huge thanks to everyone that gave what they had lying around the yard we managed to get a whole lot done with very low footprint.
Social media is a wonderful place! Got to meet such awesome people! Thank you all so much!
We managed to get all the fruit tree holes dug and filled 1/3 with logs. We then add compost and a bit of sand finally covering with hay to keep it moist and get it ready for planting! The fire pit area is starting to take shape and will be finished as soon as we can find some more logs to finish its base. This forms the seating which will be covered with a hardy grass on the inside where you sit and planted on the back with berries. This method of using the logs is called “Hugelkultur” and it has worked really successfully for us in the past especially with citrus! 🍊The opening at the bottom allows for run off water collected in the seating bowl to drain to the fruit trees which is at the lowest level of the garden.

We managed to dig out a 14 meter surface root 😳 which stretched halfway across the garden! We finally know why this line of grass died first!! Using the root we plotted out the rest of the gardens shape and have now quantified what’s required to get it done!! Super excited for the next few stages of prepping the soil and building the aquaponics pond which will double as a water feature which is something we have wanted to do since we first setup a system at our old house! It will be challenging with evaporation as it will have a very large surface area and be mostly uncovered.
Until next weekend! Have a great week everyone!! #permaculturedesign #soilfertility #droughtproof #gardening #capetown #pinelands #growyourown #garden #sustainable #hugelkultur #foodforestadventure
Coffee X Fig Connection

Fig trees are one of the most recommended trees in Indian Coffee plantation. Apart from contributing to the soil fertility and building rich diversity, they are self maintaining trees that shed leaves during cooler season and acts as a cover during draught/hot summers, just the way Indian coffee plantation requires. Know about the importance of fig trees in our story today. .

Just checking this #compost heap made on the 8/11/18. This heap was made in one go An intentional #hotcompost coming up to 3 months and it’s looking really good. Temperatures are down and the #tigerworms have moved in. Ingredients included. #grassclippings #comfrey old #leeks #woodchips #leaves #straw #rockminerals #biochar #water #lime and #love 😜. There was no master plan I had these materials available. Alternate layers of carbon rich ingredients and nitrogen rich ingredient layers. A cover put on. Every few weeks moisture levels are monitored. No turning of this heap took place. To easy. #nzlife #wanakalife #queenstownlife #soilgrown #soilfertility #soilfoodweb #nzgarden #veggiepatch #permaculturegarden #drcompost
It was beautiful to come back with the sunshine and lots of spring flowers already out! Looking forward to start sowing seeds in the garden and on the paper... this year is going to be focus on FERTILITY of the SOIL. Working on the garden and on my art towards improving our soil and spread awareness on how we can save the earth and soil with conscious actions in every day life, in the house and in our garden or farm. #soilfertility #fertility #fertilityofthesoil #courthousegallery #spingishere #irishspring #sowtheseeds #sowingseeds #protectoursoil #soilislife #lifeunderyourfeet #life #naturelover #climatechange #savetheclimate #saveoursoil #saveyoursoil #earth #terra #salvalaterra #fertilitadelsuolo #artandecology #ecologyofthearts #soilart #artofthesoil

#wormfarm needed a top up. I chuck everything in. All the #foodscraps go in but don’t forget the #carbon in the form of serviettes, brown paper bags tissues cardboard compost worms love it and your final #vermicast (worm poo) product will be far superior than without those carbon rich ingredients. #hungrybin #wormfarms #tigerworms #composting #wormcomposting #soilgrown #soilfertility #soilfoodweb #soilhealth #nzgarden #wanakalife #queenstownlife #drcompost #nzlife #makingsoil
The family that built our current home owned the pasture behind us, and like so many families a few decades ago in our area, farmed.
.
The wife, Mrs. Boeche, faithfully tended the flower and vegetable gardens and always used chicken manure from their flock for fertilizer. She also had a particular fondness for all kinds of bulbs 🌷 (I think we would have gotten along!)
.
These particular flowers are a welcome reminder that spring is just around the corner!
.
I am quite literally still reaping what Mrs. Boeche sowed so many years ago. The things you are doing today, no matter how inconsequential they might seem, matter. .
Keep up the good work, friends!
Fields😍
