    This year’s fall harvest weather sure feels a lot like this year’s Nebraska Cornhusker football team.  Every day starts with great promise and then Mother Nature throws a flag.

    Progress, it can be defined in many ways ………… Webster’s dictionary states it as “a forward or onward movement”, in the world of nutritional products and crop production I see as this.

    Balanced fertilizer applications may reduce the need for chemical disease control in some cases. Scientists who breed crops are continually attempting to develop new varieties that are resistant to pests and disease.  The big challenge is that pests and disease continually adapt to their environment, which inevitably cause resistant varieties to fail and become susceptible to pests and disease.

    Agriculture remains the heartbeat and pulse of the human race.  What we do as an industry is terribly important to the survival of our fellow humans and the planet.  The technologies we utilize today help feed and clothe more people, easier, faster, and safer than ever imagined.

    Big City Girl meets *gasp* Agriculture

    September 4, 2018 Jenny Phillips
    Born and raised in the suburbs of Cleveland, Ohio, I never thought much about where my food or stuff in general came from.  All I knew was that there was always a good supply of whatever I needed at the store.  Going to the grocery store, the once a year trip to the County Fair, and the rare occasion my family traveled outside of the city was really my only exposure to agriculture.

    I have been thinking about higher yields and what are the next possible breakthroughs in agriculture which will send yields climbing. I have also been thinking about the magazines we read in agriculture.

    Profit by the foot!

    What if we started looking at generating our net profit by the foot rather than the acre? Sounds strange, I know it does especially for a science-based mind like mine; I’ve never been accused of having a great imagination!
