JANUARY 26

12:30 - 1:30 CST

WEED, DISEASE AND PEST MANAGEMENT IN SOIL HEALTH SYSTEMS

Jason Hanson (Rock & Roll Agronomy), Joe Ikley (NDSU), Audrey Kalil (NDSU)

 

Hosted by: Angie Johnson (NDSU) and Abbey Wick (NDSU)

 

Weed, disease and pest management shift with adoption of soil health practices – for exam- ple weed spectrums change, there is potential for disease transfer from cover crops to cash crops and pest pressures may also change. It’s important to know what to watch for and how to manage issues as they arise.

MANAGING PROBLEMATIC SOILS (SALTS, LOW PH)

Ryan Buetow (NDSU), Naeem Kalwar (NDSU), Clair Keene (NDSU), other TBD

 

Hosted by: Caley Gasch (NDSU) and Abbey Wick (NDSU)

 

Problematic soils can be difficult to manage, whether it’s too much salt or acidic soils. We’ll talk about management for these two very different, but fairly common issues.

WIDE ROW CORN, RELAY CROPPING AND PERENNIALS

Russ Gesch (USDA ARS), Mike Ostlie (NDSU), Tyler Zimmerman (Farmer, Leonard, ND)

 

Hosted by: Joe Breker (Farmer, Rutland, ND) and Abbey Wick (NDSU)

 

A great aspect of soil health is the excitement of thinking out of the box – and we’ll do just that! We’ll talk about research and on-farm experimentation with wide row corn and cover crops, relay cropping with winter camelina and soybean and intercropping. That’s a lot of information to include in one hour, but if we need to go a little longer for this Soil Talk Tues- day, we can.

SOIL HEALTH IN LOW RESIDUE CROP SYSTEMS

Brad Brummond (NDSU), Amit Chatterjee (NDSU), Greg Endres (NDSU), others TBD

 

Hosted by: Abbey Wick (NDSU)

 

Using soil health practices in low residue crops, like sugar beets, dry beans, peas and sun- flowers, is critical to protecting and building the soil resource. We’ll talk about research and on-farm approaches to interseeding cover crops, planting green and options for increasing soil cover post-harvest.

MAKING SOIL HEALTH PRACTICES FIT

Marisol Berti (NDSU), Erin Gaugler (NDSU), others TBD

 

Hosted by: Miranda Meehan (NDSU), Abbey Wick (NDSU)

 

To round out our Soil Talk Tuesdays program, we’ll talk about how to modify soil health practices to fit your goals and logistics. If you want to integrate livestock on your land, you can work with neighbors who already have livestock. If you want to include a perennial in an annual cropping system or try different approaches to grazing, there are options. We’ll talk through creative ideas and tap into experience for making soil health practices fit.
