Acres Eco-Ag 2021 conference is the best biological farming educational conference - December 6-9 in Cincinnati.
In Nebraska, a strong wind lodged a customer's corn - and two weeks later it's stood back up. The biological program appears to have made the crop more resilient and able to establish brace roots and stand the stalks back up.
Biological programs are protecting and saving thousands of acres of apple orchards in Washington. Pacific Gro together with good microbials, calcium and micronutrients have proven more effective than conventional -cide approaches.
This transition to improving soil health is well underway. Many large farms have committed to it and shown that it’s possible and profitable to farm with biological practices.
Pacific Gro is an exhibitor/sponsor at 2 important conferences this year: Sept 16 - 17 in Visalia, Calif. and Dec. 6 - 9 in Cincinnati, Acres Eco-Ag Conference
Jim Martindale presents his approach to farming - building soil biology towards a system that can maintain a diverse soil microbiome without inoculants.
On June 7th, Continuum Ag held a large field day in Washington, Iowa, showing the third year of regenerative trials. They are demonstrating how to regenerate the soil – by using biological inputs in a system with less chemical inputs.
Watermelon yield increased more than 30% in Edinburg, Texas – in a biological program using compost tea (microbes), Pacific Gro Sea Phos, foliar applied nutrients, and reduced NPK. Watermelon yield was 61,000 lbs. at harvest, plus we expect an additional 10,000 lbs. in 2 – 3 more cuttings, compared to 50,000 lb. normal yield.
A farming system with biological inputs can reduce total input costs, increase profitability, and establish soil that's more resilient to pests and pathogens.
When it comes to plant yield, how growers perform specific tasks is every bit as important as which tasks they perform. Seed germination, application strategy, and the observed benefits of high-quality soil microbe enzymatic and plant growth regulator (PGR) contributions can make a drastic difference in yield.. The importance of emergence and timing can’t be underestimated, either.
