The Difference Between Manure and Fertilizers and How they Work

The Difference Between Manure and Fertilizers and How they Work

Hello farmers and gardeners today we are here with a great information of the difference between manure and fertilizers. To increase agriculture, produce, the farmers work on improving the fertility of the soil, which is possible by adding both manure and fertilizer. When several crops are grown one after the other, it decreases the productivity of the soil. Though, this can be overcome by adding manures and fertilizers to the soil. This increases the yield of the plants and restores the productivity of the soil. Thus, manures and fertilizers are…

Comprehensive Guide on Growing Hydroponic Green Fodder

Comprehensive Guide on Growing Hydroponic Green Fodder

Growing hydroponic green fodder is gaining popularity as the day passes by. Hydroponic green fodder system has many benefits and through this system you can feed your animals with green fodder without the need of soil and the fodder is also highly nutritious as well as healthy for the animals. Hydroponics is actually a subset of hydroculture, which is a method of growing plants without soil. Green fodder is very important for raising milch animals and it provides required nutrients and mineral for the animals. Feeding cost is very high…

Reasons Why Nigeria should Invest in Grass Production

Reasons Why Nigeria should Invest in Grass Production

The southward migration of herdsmen propelled by effects of climate change and desert encroachment, competition for land resources between herdsmen and local farmers make grass production imperative. Again, low level of animal production in the savanna zones of Nigeria is generally associated with the inability to get enough grass to feed their animals especially in the dry season. It is therefore the responsibility of government to ensure livelihood of both herders and farmers by identifying the needs and challenges faced by each group and come up with lasting solutions for…

Complete Guide on How to Grow Hydroponic Fodder to Feed your Animals

How to Grow Hydroponic Fodder to Feed your Animals

Hydroponics means the technique of growing plants without soil or solid growing medium, but using water or nutrient rich solution only for a short duration. Typical hydroponic systems are produced under artificial conditions (i.e. green house or lighted systems in a closed box) with regular watering, producing a crop within 6-7 days. While fodder usually refers to dried hay or straw (typically containing things like sorghum or corn) used to feed livestock, hydroponic fodder is a sprouted grain that is fed to the animals as a living green dietary supplement.…

How spiders can harm and help flowering plants

How spiders can harm and help flowering plants

The enemy of my enemy is my friend. Now researchers show that this principle also holds for crab spiders and flowering plants. While it’s true that the spiders do eat or drive away useful pollinators such as bees, they’re also attracted by floral scent signals to come and help if the plant is attacked by insects intent on eating it. Crab spiders sitting on the flowers keep away bees and also plant-eating insects from visiting the plants. Credit: Anina C. Knauer Interactions between organisms such as plants and animals can…

8 Steps to Successful Perennial Pasture Establishment

8 Steps to Successful Perennial Pasture Establishment

The reliable establishment is vital to ensure high levels of production and longevity from perennial pastures. Perennial pasture seeds are generally small with seedlings that are delicate and slow-growing compared to most crops and many weeds. Greater care and attention to detail is therefore necessary to establish perennial pastures successfully. The following checklist of eight critical steps will help you achieve successful establishment and reduce the risk of failure. Optimum sowing times and species will vary with regions but the principles embodied in these eight steps will remain the same.…

How to Grow Fodder in 6 Days and Feed your Cows on the 7th Day

How to Grow Fodder in 6 Days and Feed your Cows on the 7th Day

Mr Charles Ndegwa tends to use his hydroponics crops at his farm in Kiambu. In Summary of Fodder Production I took my time to look for alternative methods that farmers in developed countries use to feed their animals during droughts. What do they do differently to increase and sustain milk, meat and egg production without increasing costs? I asked myself. In Australia, I discovered, they started using hydroponic fodder in 1940s. By the 1970s, other countries like India, Canada, America and South Africa had adopted it to feed their animals.…

Sowing Guide for Different kind of Crops

Sowing Guide for Different kind of Crops

A crop is a plant or plant product that can be grown and harvested for profit or subsistence. By use, crops fall into six categories: food crops, feed crops, fiber crops, oil crops, ornamental crops, and industrial crops. Every crop farmer must be aware of the specie he/she wants to cultivate, the average number of seeds, the quantity for sowing per hectare and the crop density (Number of plants per hectare). This will help the farmer understand what his or her expectations are from the crops to be planted. Below…

Converting waste water from dairies to animal feed and aviation fuel

Microbes help turn Greek yogurt waste into fuel

Scientists have developed a bioprocess that enables conversion of acid whey, a dairy by-product, without the use of additional chemicals. Professor Lars Angenent from the Center of Applied Geosciences at the University of Tübingen and international colleagues used microbiome cultures similar to those in the human gut. The new bio-oil can be used in animal feed or, after further refinement, as a fuel for airplanes. The results of the study were published in Joule, a new premier journal from CellPress. Every liter of milk that goes into milk products, such…
