Technology to Improve Sprayer Accuracy
3/26/2014 (new)

 UK Authors: Tim Stombaugh
 Departments: Biosystems and Agricultural Engineering
 Series: Precision Agriculture (PA series)
 Tags:

A number of new technologies have been introduced over the last several years aimed at improving the accuracy of spray application, but do they really work? The purpose of this document is to highlight the most common causes of application errors then discuss the array of new sprayer technologies that are becoming available, how they might affect application accuracy, and pitfalls involved in using them.

Mulching with Large Round Bales between Plastic-covered Beds
4/26/2013 (new)

 UK Authors: Tim Coolong, Tim Stombaugh,
 Departments: Biosystems and Agricultural Engineering, Horticulture
 Series: Interdepartmental (ID series)
 Tags:

Large round bales lend themselves very well to the application of mulching rows of vegetables because the bales can be unrolled to peel off layers that are about the right thickness for mulch. An innovative implement that offsets the bale so that it can be unrolled between the rows while the tractor straddles the row can make the practice of mulching with round bales considerably more efficient.

A New Concept in On-Farm Biofuel Production
3/19/2012 (new)

 UK Authors: Will Adams, Michael Montross,
 Departments: Biosystems and Agricultural Engineering
 Series: Agricultural Engineering (AEN series)
 Tags:

For many social, political, and economic reasons, biofuels are moving quickly from the fuel of tomorrow to the fuel of today. Researchers at the University of Kentucky are working on a new system of biofuel production that involves on-farm processing of biomass. This factsheet provides a general overview of this new concept that could have a great impact on agriculture and the fuel-production industry.

Corn and Soybean Production Calendar
12/16/2009 (reprinted)

 UK Authors: Ric Bessin, J.D. Green, Jim Herbek
 Departments: Agricultural Economics, Biosystems and Agricultural Engineering,
 Series: Interdepartmental (ID series)
 Tags: corn, farm crops, grain crops,

The Corn and Soybean Production Calendar was developed to help producers prioritize and schedule work events in a timely fashion on the farm. Weather events and equipment breakdowns rarely follow an organized schedule. However, if other practices within the farming operation are prioritized, perhaps a producer can better address the emergencies that will occur.
