U.S. farmers are growing fewer types of crops than they were 34 years ago, which could have implications for how farms fare as changes to the climate evolve, according to a large-scale study by Kansas State University, North Dakota State University and the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Less crop diversity may also be impacting the general ecosystem.

Spring stable fly control starts in winter

The stable fly is the most concerning pest for producers of both pasture and feedlot cattle, according to Ludek Zurek, Kansas State University professor of entomology.

The day I took a vacation from Super Foods and Anti-oxidants

These days everyone is giving us advice on what to eat. In our home, Dr. Oz, with his frozen jet-black hair, leads the charge on do's and don'ts. But the books and magazines on this topic are endless as well. A search on Amazon for healthy eating shows 9,000 books. One I saw promised to reset "your body's natural balance and be truly healthy."

Celebrate Family Day September 28th

The more often kids eat dinner with their families, the less likely they are to smoke, drink or use drugs. That is a powerful statement supported by more than a decade of research by the National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse at Columbia University. It sounds simple enough. Make time each day to eat dinner with your children. As families with growing school agers soon find out, activities and other demands on time make sitting around the dining room table together a bit difficult.

Microbes, Soil Health, and Crop Production

When we think about microbes (bacteria, fungi, and other organisms too small to be seen by the naked eye) we often term them germs and consider them as harmful, even deadly. However, the soil environment just like human beings benefit greatly and even need microorganisms for good health. What type of organisms are we concerned with? These organisms include algae, fungi, bacteria, archaea, nematodes, earthworms, arthropods, and insects. Not all of these are microscopic for at least part of their life cycle but all tend to be thought of in negative terms. So what ecological niches (spots) in the soil ...
