FARMERS IN THE FIELD
This Week in Louisiana Agriculture reviewed the July 24, 2015 NBGC Model Farm Series stop in Bastrop, LA held in conjunction with the Morehouse Black Farmers and Landowners Association. The segment by A.J. Sabine includes video footage covering UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) demonstration, NBGC Ag Apprentice program, and more.
Dexter Gilbert, who farms some 2,500 acres in Jackson County, Florida, says the combination of conservation tillage and cover crops has helped reduce input costs while improving his cotton, peanut and corn yields. He’s seeing more organic matter in the soil and he’s also happy with his soil’s pH levels.
