Less chemistry, more crop breeding:

What farmers really need right now are new plant protection products. There’s an ever-shortening time span for whole groups of active ingredients between introduction and loss of efficacy. With herbicides we only need to look at glyphosate in the US, or our own problems with grass weeds here in Europe.

As for insecticides, the important pyrethroid group hasn’t been working the way it should for a long time now. With fungicides there’s talk of resistances to the new carboxamides before they’ve even hit the market. So what are the leading agrochemical firms doing about it? It’s true that they’re continually launching new plant protection products onto the market but »new« in most cases is only the name, or the mixture concept, or formulation – not the active ingredient, or even the biological mode of action. But while all this
is going on these same companies are investing immense sums in plant breeding.

Crop-Scouting: Minimal Investment, Huge Returns

The costs of not scouting are many. The most obvious one is losing a crop because you don’t find the problem until you can see it from the road (windshield scouting) and that is far too late. Less obvious may be the subtle yield losses (that can add up in a hurry) due to weed breaks, low level pest pressure, planter malfunction, nutrient deficiencies to name a few. Then there is the cost of treating when it was not necessary. Even if you feel the treatment is “cheap insurance” there is a cost.

Chemicals cost money, time and equipment (yours or hired) cost money, with insecticides the harm to beneficial insects cost us. The worst case (but not all that uncommon) scenario is treating when the pest is not there or there in low levels and then having to treat a 2nd time when the pest actually shows up or because you knocked out all the beneficial predators with the 1st spray and you allow the pest to come in with no natural enemies (this is common with soybean aphids and the ladybird beetles that feast on them).

Tree Crops for Marginal Farmland

Growing Christmas trees can be a profitable use for marginally productive farmland. Though more laborintensive than other tree crops, a Christmas tree crop can return a profit in as little as six years. In addition, Christmas tree production requires little up-front capital investment. Most production operations require only hand tools or common farm machinery.

Most industry experts predict that Christmas tree markets will remain strong for at least the next few years. However, there is a surplus of Christmas trees in many regions of the United States. In order to be competitive, growers must efficiently produce high-quality trees of the species that consumers demand.
