Here’s a $44 per acre yield benefit — for a $14 per acre investment

An in-furrow liquid delivery system on your planter is a yield-enhancing essential for the upcoming “biological age” of crop production. As we start 2018, less than one row-crop farmer in 10 equips his planter with an in-furrow setup. That needs to change, fast. Jan. 18, 2018 — Right now is an ideal time to fire up the furnace in …

The Purdue professor heard ’round the world

We’re honoring Dr. Don Huber as a “Hero of Renewable Farming” for his decades of courage, intellect and hard work.

Are you ready for climate change? Global cooling, that is

That headline is a repeat of an analysis we published more than two years ago, on Sept. 4, 2015. Although the current cold snap will undoubtedly be blamed on warming from carbon dioxide or other taxable notions, evidence keeps piling up that the power of long-term solar cycles holds the greatest agricultural significance. Jan. 1, …
