Ohio Field Leader Soybean Conservation Practices

Macro and Micro Nutrients

“All crops require seventeen essential nutrients for proper growth and development, the specific amount of each nutrient depends upon the crop.” – James Hoorman, Hoorman Soil Health Services

Compaction: Where the rubber meets the road

“Over time as equipment has gotten larger, the load on each wheel has increased.” – Dr. Ian McDonald, Ontario Ministry of Agriculture

Soil compaction, choices and patience

“Soil compaction is a management decision. It is about the choices we make and how much patience we have.” – Dr. Ian McDonald, Ontario Ministry of Agriculture

When Weeds Talk

“Each plant is an indicator of the conditions that exist in that field and indicates why some agronomic crops growth may suffer.  Weeds give us a clue to what factors are either limiting or in excess.” – Jim Hoorman, Hoorman Soil Health Services

The Ohio Agriculture Conservation Initiative and Ohio Agriculture Conservation Council

“There are a lot of farmers out there doing the right things, we just have not had a good way to measure or quantify those or to be able to communicate that to the general public.” – Dr. Scott Shearer, The Ohio State University

Determining P load in Ohio’s rivers

“Agriculture is often cited as the entire cause of the non-point source of phosphorus in Ohio’s rivers, however that is not entirely true.” – Elizabeth Toot-Levy, Geosyntec Consultants.

Tillage for the control of weeds, insects and disease

“Shallow tillage often just redistributes weed seed in the top few inches.” – Mark Loux, OSU Extension Weed Specialist

Why do we still see so much tillage across Ohio?

“Breaking up compaction on the end rows and high traffic areas will require a different action than that of sizing residue and pinning it to the soil so it does not move off the field during the winter and spring.” – Doug Martin
