Hay growers and livestock owners often spend alot of time and effort working out the details of their fertilization and herbicide applications in order to maximize their yields, but often they are unaware of some simple steps that can be taken to address such issues. One simple way to improve yields from season to season and even cutting to cutting is by not cutting your cool season grass hay too short (or not allowing your animals to graze your pastures too short). Since those extra carbs serve minimal nutritional purpose for the animals eating the hay, and that extra couple inches of grass stem does not SIGNIFICANTLY increase the overall yield pulled from the field on each cutting, you are better off leaving those stubs alone so that the grass has the carbs it needs for quick growth following a cutting or faster green-up and growth in the spring. Believe it or not, you can actually stall your spring green-up by 2-4 weeks by cutting your hay too short at the end of the previous season.
Not only does cutting or grazing your hay too short in the fall decrease the yield that you can pull from that first cutting in the spring, it also increases weed growth, which, in turn, increases the need to apply herbicides to take care of the weeds, increasing your costs even further.
Another way to save money (at least in the long run) growing hay is to consider overseeding as an alternative weed control method to applying herbicides. Now, increasing the density of your stand will likely increase drying times prior to baling, but, otherwise, it will provide for considerably more yield for the time spent harvesting it, and time is money, is it not? Many weeds tend to grow more vigorously than grass on particular plots simply because the soil conditions are not ideal for grass but may be more ideal for a particular weed or category of weeds. Now, you may not be one who really feels that herbicide applications are really a problem, and, as much as may beg to differ, there’s really no reason for waste time arguing over that point. Moreover, for those individuals who would prefer to purchase hay from farms that do not use herbicide applications, you’ll be doing yourself a favor by widening the potential market for your hay to individuals that you would not have been able to sell to before (and possibly for a higher price as well). Also, in the next section, I’m going to take some time to discuss soil organic matter, humus and microbial activity. Do not underestimate the HUGE impact that significant soil microbial activity can have to your overall hay yield and the drought and stress resistance of your plot. So, use soil analysis to determine your soil organic matter levels and top-dress with compost, manure or whatever organic matter you can get your hands on.
At that point, it won’t matter how much chemical fertilizer you apply, you will not get good growth and the soil will be basically dead. Another negative aspect of the use of conventional NPK fertilizers is that, in the form they are in, as they are processed within the soil and by the plant, excess salts build up within the soil over time. Of course, most soils are not yet that bad, but they are headed in that direction because the salts are building up within the soil at a faster rate than the soil can rid itself of them.
In addition to the salt buildup, conventional fertilizer use tends to have a negative effect on soil pH, moving it farther and farther away from neutral, often requiring the application of pH adjustment materials like lime or sulfur to address the issue. But, soils fertilized with conventional fertilizers and not amended continually with additional organic matter, tend to have very little humus (since the soils are being stripped and microbes and earthworms are moving out).
Another factor that seems to be a strike against conventional fertilizer use is the effect that these types of fertilizer ultimately have on the plant, even in the short-term.
Once you’ve got good soil and a relatively dense stand of grass, it may be advisable to incorporate some clover into your hay stand. This is nitrogen that will NOT wash away, leach out of the soil or vaporize after application, as is the case with many commercial nitrogen fertilizer applications. Of course, clover is also an excellent protein source for your animals, so, on the nutritional front, it can be helpful as well. Of course, overseeding with alfalfa would be a suitable alternative to using clover as it also fixes nitrogen into the soil. Lastly, seriously consider inoculating the soil with the proper bacteria to help your newly seeded clover or alfalfa to properly fix that nitrogen.
Now, this is a topic that could create a bit of anxiety on the part of many smaller farmers simply because of the perceived up-front cost of actually providing irrigation to your fields. When it comes down to it, whether you’ve got good soil or not, a long-term drought WILL affect your overall grass production. And, if you’ve got REALLY good soil with lots of humus, the slight risk of a minimal decrease in production from drought may not be sufficient enough reason to invest in a potentially costly irrigation system. If you have written off irrigation as too costly an upgrade for your farm, especially if you are a farm with poorer quality soil where drought conditions can severely affect your yields and profits, I implore you to consider whether it would be worth brainstorming this issue a bit further to come up with a solution.
The truth is there are MANY different methods for irrigating a field and the costs of those methods vary greatly from one to the next, depending upon what resources you may have available on your farm, where they are located and how your farm is situated. The small consulting fee that you might pay for this initial evaluation might be well worth it in terms of making sure you get the RIGHT irrigation system for your needs and the additional profits such a system might yield by helping you avoid low moisture yield issues.
Consider whether you might be more likely to get funded if you look toward more cutting-edge, innovative irrigation methods that may lead to better, more efficient farming in the future. Look at those proposals that have been successful in retaining funding for their project and try to emulate what you believe they’ve done to be successful.
I would suggest at least taking a look at what AGGRAND Organic Fertilizers have to offer you and see whether they might be a good fit for your farm.

This entry was posted on May 15, 2013, 10:19 am and is filed under Hay and Pastures, Organic Farming. Getting ready to plant 15 acres of irrigated land in S Texas, local agent recommended use of 2.4 d herbicide for weed control as field has not farmed in a year and is overgrown with broadleaf weeds. However, to control such weed growth organically can be a little more difficult and somewhat time consuming (although more rewarding in the long run in terms of overall production). Heavily over-seed the property with whatever grass type(s) you’d prefer to have on this plot. To be sure, the organic method is more time consuming and possibly more expensive in the short term. 2-4d will certainly work and can even be combined with the AGGRAND product and applied together.
As for average cost differences between conventional and organic fertilizers, that’s a tough one to answer because there is ALOT of variability in terms of organic fertilizer pricing.

I'm astonish and giving marvel films big props for populating their movie verse with such diverse characters.
The Falcon is one of those characters that could be totally lame or be cool, depending on how he's done. Black Panther debuted in Fantastic Four #52 in 1966, three years BEFORE the Falcon's first appearance. OR about to create a cinematic universe that will be unparalleled in the history of moving pictures.
The way they are starting to throw characters into movies (both popular and obscure) is crazy!
Who got any traction, and that anyone has ever heard of, was Black Panther, intro'd in Fantastic Four in 1966. I like Falcon and am happy about this news, but why won't Marvel make a movie for a leading black hero like Black Panther? But he was still the first major black superhero, a far more important distinction to black people, I can pretty much promise you. Market a Black Panther film as absolutely essential viewing in the build-up to Avengers 2 and audiences will not have a choice but see it.


And I always liked the Falcon due to his colorful costume but doubt they will keep that for the movie. My bet is they take the tactic they have with many of the Marvel film superheroes thus far (for better or worse) in modeling much of it after the Ultimate universe. Say what you will about the Ultimate universe itself, but the Falcon there is better suited for the MCU than the many iterations of the Falcon in the proper Marvel universe, and i have no doubt they're going to model Mackie after him. I can't wait to see how bland the take on what is already a bland hero turns out to be in this film.

A grizzly bear (named Grizzly), a panda bear (named Panda), and a polar bear (named…Ice?!) are siblings who try to fit into a human-dominated world, however poorly (with hijinks ensuing, of course).
I assume that reviving Looney Tunes has been rewarding for Cartoon Network, as they’re now willing to make a new Looney Tunes series so soon after the previous one. One of the few newer Cartoon Network hits is returning with a series of specials, as well as new episodes (due in 2015). As I noted at the beginning, future schedules will probably reflect more of a post-Snyder leadership at Cartoon Network. The one big criticism by some would be the low amount of action shows (and, I suppose, gender diversity issues). Knowing these techniques and how they can benefit you can be a good first step toward decreasing costs and increasing profits for your farm or ranch. Cool season grasses store most of their carbohydrate reserves in the first 3-4″ of stem above ground. This is because those carbohydrate reserves are needed for root regrowth in the spring which follows the root shedding that occurs over the winter. In contrast, the quicker you can get the grass growing in the spring, the more it will shade those weed seeds, preventing germination in the first place. The thicker your grass stand is, the better your grass stand will be able to shade those weed seeds and crowd out what little weed growth you may get. Moreover, overseeding your plot will provide for a thicker stand which will provide more yield. Addressing those soil conditions so that the soil is more hospitable to the grass and less hospitable to the weeds can be a major step in significantly controlling your weed populations without resorting to herbicide applications. So, if what I’m suggesting here works for you, it could prove to be a rather lucrative change in mindset, regardless of your personal opinions regarding herbicide applications.
Taking the time to address these issues can be a GIANT step toward controlling weed populations in your hay fields and pastures. The truth is, if you focus very specifically on those specific issues with regard to soil management, most all of the above issues that can lead to poor grass growth and excessive weed growth will address themselves quite effectively, without you having to place much specific emphasis on ANY of them. With good levels of soil organic matter (3 – 5 or 6% is best) as a food source and minimal chemical applications, soil microbes will flourish in your soil. Not only does it become a powerhouse nutrient source for your grass, yielding water INsoluble yet completely bio-available nutrients, it also can soak up and retain up to 9 times it’s volume in water. Then, consider applying a product like AGGRAND Organic Fertilizer or Effective Microorganisms or something similar in order to stimulate additional microbial activity in the soil. The fact is that high nitrogen, phosphorus or potassium conventional fertilizers are not petroleum based and are derived from natural sources. However, that being said, conventional farming practices and conventional fertilizer use is causing problems that often result in additional chemical applications being used, many of which ARE more harmful to the environment, to animals, to humans and to soil fertility and usability.
Because the plant needs these micro-nutrients and minerals for good growth and for the processing of those NPK macro-nutrients, every time you apply these conventional fertilizers, you force the crop that you’re growing to steal these micro-nutrients and minerals from the soil.
I have had MANY farmers come to me looking for alternative solutions to conventional fertilizer applications, not because they don’t agree with the use of these types of fertilizer, but simply because they are no longer working for them the way they used to.
But, up until now, the soil was filling in the rest of the puzzle behind the scenes – unnoticed. This excessive salt buildup kills off or pushes out critical earthworm and microbial activity which only exacerbates the problem AND leaves any stray organic matter that might be in the soil in a state that is unusable to the plant because it is never converted to humus.
Since soil microbes serve a crucial role in humus production AND have a symbiotic relationship with plant roots making it easier for plant to assimilate the water and nutrients they need, you’re creating a vicious, downward spiralling cycle which ends with dead soil and a desolate farm.
It IS true, as I mentioned earlier, that, as long as you have sufficient micro-nutrient and mineral content in the soil (and soil salt and pH levels aren’t TOO far out of whack), you CAN get significant growth by using conventional NPK fertilizers. Of course, there are many different varieties, and you’ll want to pay close attention to which varieties might do best in your climate, soil and growing conditions.
As a result, this soil nitrogen fixation is capable of significantly reducing or even eliminating the need for supplemental nitrogen application while promoting excellent grass growth (a significant savings). Either way, if you’re going to overseed with ANYTHING (grass, clover or alfalfa), work on getting soil conditions right first.
However, that being said, it IS an issue that should be given a bit more thought by MANY hay and pasture growers, simply because of the dramatic effects that prolonged drought or even short-term drought can have on your overall profits.
Now, with good quality soil with plenty of humus, these effects will be MUCH less pronounced, even with long-term, prolonged drought situations.
Unfortunately, for many farmers, soil humus levels are really NOT terribly good, which means that soil moisture retention is minimal, at best. The truth is, it might actually pay off to hire an individual or company that is knowledgeable in this area to evaluate your farm and fields to see what the most cost effective solution might be for YOU. It might trigger some unique and minimally expensive incentive ideas on your part which might make this a much more cost effective option for you. Look at those proposals that do not seem to be gaining much investment and try to avoid the things that you think they might have done (or NOT done) to hurt their chances. Very few farms have the kind of soil that will promote significant growth without the use of some fertilizer inputs.
They’re not right for everyone, but, they really are a great product and many farms could effectively integrate our products into their farming practices with significant positive effect, especially over multiple seasons. Your best organic option would likely be to broadcast spray a strong acetic acid (vinegar) solution to kill the weeds (AND whatever grass is still there, since acetic acid is non-selective) and then till everything in to use as organic matter. Continue to fertilize well and work on stimulating organic matter conversion to humus for good grass production and excellent soil water retention. However, the long term benefits will be excellent growth, more consistent growth, significant drought, disease and pest tolerance and much better nutrient profile of the grass.
But, it is a short-term solution that has long-term ramifications which will inhibit any of the things that you really should be trying to encourage in the soil for long-term profitability and stability.

So, similarly, if you allow your animals to graze your pastures down to nubs prior to winter, you stall out the spring regrowth in your pastures.
The problem is HOW they are converted into the format that you ultimately apply and what that conversion means to the soil and to the plant over time. Now, if you are regularly adding back significant amounts of organic matter to the plot, this won’t be as big of an issue.
Further inspection always reveals that the soil has been completely stripped of all life giving material, and these high NPK fertilizers are not supplying what the plant needs to grow. When it ceases to be able to fill that gap, conventional fertilizers become a useless expense that produces little result. In fact, there are some plots which have been heavily fertilized with these conventional fertilizers for years and have actually become so saturated with these salts that you’ll actually see a white film crusting over the top of the soil.
Research has consistently shown that soils high in humus and microbial activity naturally maintain neutral soil pH with minimal or no additional interventions necessary.
This is primarily because these fertilizers provide unnaturally high levels of these macro-nutrients and they provide them in a water soluble format.
And, as a result, the plant ends up growing in an unnatural, steroid-like way, with many negative side effects. As a result, even a couple weeks without rain on a non-irrigated plot can be a significant drain on seasonal yield.
You might be surprised at how much LESS it might cost to implement one irrigation method vs another.
The internet is a great way to at least initially research some of available irrigation technology out there that you MIGHT take advantage of. Consider how you can use that current trend to your advantage, but, don’t be dishonest with people in order to get funded. Research is going to be critical to this option of capital development, but, this could be an excellent way to fund your irrigation project without much money needed on your part.
Anytime you use non-organic fertilizers or chemical controls, you mess with the balance of the soil nutrients, microbes, earthworms, organic matter, etc. The only record the Koenigsegg did not beat was Bugatti's overall top speed, which still stands at 268 miles per hour. Falcon, otherwise known as Sam Wilson, was a regular ally of Captain America, helping him take on Red Skull as his partner for some time and even taking on the Captain America persona when Captain America was believed to have been killed. They seem to think if its like that in the comics, it will DEFINITELY be like that in the movie. A plot with high levels of humus is a plot that can easily withstand weeks on end with absolutely no rainfall or irrigation and continue producing as if rainfall has been ongoing the entire time.
So, the question becomes, are in farming for short-term gain or long term success for you and your family? Under the right soil microbial conditions, clover can fix tremendous amounts of atmospheric nitrogen into the soil. Try to offer something to investors that will make them feel that they are getting something of value for their investment but that may not necessarily cost you alot to provide. But, use of commercial NPK fertilizers is not doing you any major favors, at least not over the long haul. But now the Hennessey Venom GT officially holds the Guinness world record for accelerating from 0-186 MPH, making it the fastest car in the world today.Hennessey Venom GTEarlier this week, a team from Hennessey took their Venom GT out onto a Houston track to test the super car's limits.

Along with the new foes will come new supporting characters—Bigfoot and a squirrel named Squeaks.
Classic characters are being given (hopefully) faithful new adaptions, while Cartoon Network continues to hold to their actual hit shows (Ninjago, Adventure Time, Regular Show, etc.). For more detail on this whole topic, see my other article on Fulvic and Humic Acid in the soil. The decrease simply won’t be as bad as it would be if you had low quality soil with little moisture retention ability.
The team was well aware that the standing record for accelerating from 0-186 MPH was 14.53 seconds, set by the Koenigsegg Agera R. At this point, I assume the Jones, Rogers, Blake, Dinkley, and Doo family trees must rival a soap opera or X-Men comic in complexity. What I DO know is that you’ll be moving your soil in the right direction to encourage more consistent production and profits that will be much less affected by climate, disease and pest pressures and will offer much better nutrition to the animals eating this grass. After several practice runs and much anticipation, the Guinness team officially clocked the Hennessey Venom GT's 0-186 MPH at 13.63 seconds. On the other hand, the Hennessey team is quick to claim that if they also had access to Volkswagen's famous Ehra-Lessien test track, the Venom GT could would easily smash Bugatti's top speed record.
The Hennessey team is now on the hunt for a track or private toll rode that would allow them to really go after the Super Sport's 268 MPH top speed mark. Hennessey's world record test driver believes that hitting 270 MPH would be no problem with the right course.Another thing you may want to consider when purchasing a super car like the Venom GT or the Bugatti Veyron is fuel economy.
In other words, when driving at top speed the Bugatti will burn through 1.5 gallons of fuel every minute.
That means if you are driving at top speed, you will burn through an entire tank of gas in just over 10 minutes!
