AgroLiquid’s goal is to prosper the farmer while safeguarding the environment. Learn how they are different from any other fertilizer company in the industry today as experts discuss details about their line of high-performance fertilizers formulated with scientifically based recommendations to help growers achieve the best possible production yields while employing sustainable agricultural practices.
Senior Research Manager, Dr. Jerry Wilhm discusses how and why the lower applied rates of AgroLiquid nutrients are sustainable and more efficient in feeding the plant the nutrients it needs to thrive. In this short video, Dr. Wilhm further demonstrates this through a four-year sustainability study from the North Central Research Station (NCRS).
LEED, or Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design, is the recognized standard for measuring building sustainability. The LEED program provides third-party verification of green buildings. These buildings satisfy specific requirements put in place by the U.S. Green Building Council, and earn points to achieve different levels of certification.
The number of points a project earns is based on specific categories. The main point categories are sustainable sites, water efficiency, energy & atmosphere, materials & resources, and indoor environmental quality credits. Points are allocated based on the environmental impacts and human benefits of the building. Projects achieve certification based on the following point levels:
Certified: 40–49 points
Silver: 50–59 points
Gold: 60–79 points
Platinum: 80+ points
LEED certification is important to Agro-Culture Liquid Fertilizers because we care about the sustainability of our environment. AgroLiquid’s corporate headquarters is LEED Gold Certified. Our focus is on being environmentally responsible with our fertilizer and in everything we do.
No-tillers can’t afford to waste money on applied fertilizer. Neither can the agriculture industry continue to watch these resources negatively impact watersheds without expecting possible severe regulations. Nobody knows that any better than no-tiller Mike Starkey of Brownsburg, Ind., whose farm lies right at the base of the Eagle Creek Watershed that supplies the city of Indianapolis its drinking water.
This 1 hour webinar produced by No-Till Farmer Magazine originally broadcast November 27th, 2013.
To prepare for the layoffs many food lines have been set up and are prepared to stay running during the winter. The Endangered Species Act will cause collateral damage. For every $1 spent on the farmer approximately $7 is spent in town. These effects will hurt not only workers, but the government and schools as well.
Getting More For Less From The Fertilizer You Apply
No-tillers can’t afford to waste money on applied fertilizer. Neither can the agriculture industry continue to watch these resources negatively impact watersheds without expecting possible severe regulations. Nobody knows that any better than no-tiller Mike Starkey of Brownsburg, Ind., whose farm lies right at the base of the Eagle Creek Watershed that supplies the city of Indianapolis its drinking water. Join Mike Starkey on Tuesday, November 26, at 7 p.m. Central time (8 p.m. Eastern) as he reviews what he’s learned from onfarm trials and the changes he’s made to his fertility-management practices throughout the years. You’ll learn how he’s been able to increase corn and soybean yields with less applied fertilizer and reduce his impact on the environment. This No-Till Farmer webinar is being made possible with support from Agro-Culture Liquid Fertilizers.
Here are some of the things that Starkey will address in this exclusive webinar.
Our 5-year No-Till Operational Benchmark Study reveals that applied fertilizer consistently ranks as one of the most costly inputs for no-tillers. Check in with No-Till Farmer, Mike Starkey and Agro-Culture Liquid Fertilizers on Tuesday, November 26, at 7 p.m. Central time (8 p.m. Eastern) to get a better understanding of managing fertility for efficacy and efficiency.
The Endangered Species Act doe not just affect the farmers, but is a threat to the economy too. There is potential for widespread layoffs. America could be at risk as California produces majority of the nuts, fruits and vegetables in the nation. This impact goes further than the valley.
The California water shortage has been a problem since 2009 and has only been getting worse. There is great uncertainty in the future. Many do not see the need for balance with the water restriction laws. People need to realize farmers are environmentalists too.
The constant reduction of water deliveries in California are not just hurting operations. The pain goes further. Without the needed water California will have to bring in food from other countries. Many of these countries do not have the regulations we do to grow healthy food.
