Plants & Crops

Whether you are working a backyard vegetable garden or centennial row-crop farm, every grower wants to find higher yield, better crop quality and cost savings, all while serving as a good steward of the land. Replenishing humic material can achieve all those goals at once.

Research shows that a humic acid soil conditioner can increase yield in a host of ways: Improving seed germination, providing better soil texture to hold and distribute water, enabling the plant to absorb nitrogen more efficiently and helping to fight disease.

June 19, 2017

  Southland Organics' Evan Gill explains the difference between Fertilizer and Soil Amendments. Soil Conditioners/Amendments Don’t add concentrated nutrients to the soil but actually improve the texture Can be both organic or inorganic Modify the soil structure Rebuild soils which have been damaged by improper management Mixed into topsoil to promote healthy plant growth Fertilizers Concentrated nutrient amounts added to the soil for a direct plant growth influence Does not help soil's texture Has a balanced ratio of nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium available to plants after application Supplies nutrients such as such as proteins and carbohydrates May be chemically manufactured (synthetic fertilizer) or created from plant and animal products (natural fertilizer)

Organic Poultry: The New NOP Avian Rule

March 21, 2017

Organic Poultry NOP Rule

As poultry farmers, providing sufficient living conditions and environments for chickens is a practice that is instilled upon us. With a new law coming into effect, “sufficient” living conditions won’t be enough to pass the United States Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) National Organic Program (NOP) standards.

The Avian Rule, which is set to come into effect in May 2017, will require producers and handlers participating in the National Organic Program to maintain ammonia levels monthly and implement certain practices to sustain ammonia levels below ten parts per million (ppm). For indoor chicken houses, ammonia levels are harder to eliminate due to ventilation issues. In numerous cases, maintaining levels of 10 ppm isn’t always doable right off the bat. If your farm’s ammonia levels exceed 10 ppm, it is crucial to implement further practices and monitoring to ensure that levels steady around 10 ppm and don’t exceed 25 ppm. If levels go beyond 25 ppm, it is considered out of compliance and can cause physical damage to chickens in your chicken house. The new regulations fall under the Animal Welfare Rules that were published in January.
