Soil Health Tip

About 4000 gallons of water are needed to grow one bushel of corn.

While some consider water as the limiting factor for growing crops, consider this: In our area, more than 65% of the soil must remain covered to limit evaporation of water from the soil. Bare soil heats up quickly in direct sunlight and increased soil temperatures result in faster evaporation. Water that could be used by the crop for growth is now lost and salts that were in the water solution are left on the surface potentially causing germination problems later. Residue cover also limits the drying effect of the wind and traps snow during the winter.
