Fall tillage? Is it necessary?

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest It’s dry and we harvested early, so we have time to kill — and diesel is cheap. Sjoerd Duiker, soil management specialist at Penn State, is a graduate of OSU’s School of Environment and Natural Resources and works just next door. A year ago he supplied us with these remarks on when and why to do fall tillage, it bears repeating.When compaction has been caused, remedial action may be needed. This is especially the case if ruts have been created. If no ruts are seen it is probably not needed to do tillage — instead plant a cover crop to use the living root system to alleviate compaction.Ruts need to be smoothened out to be able to plant the next crop successfully, however. If ruts are uniformly distributed across the whole field, some type of tillage may need to be done on the whole field. In many cases, however, ruts are localized and only need localized repair.It will be necessary to till deeper than the depth of compaction. Shallow ‘vertical tillage’ tools that only do tillage in the top 4 inches will not be sufficient to manage soil compaction.Very tough shanks are needed that will penetrate instead of bounce on top of the compacted layer. New subsoilers can do maximum fracturing without doing much surface disturbance with straight or bent-leg shanks. Parabolic shanks do much more surface disturbance and will need more secondary tillage for seedbed preparation and are therefore not preferred.Deep tillage may be what you could use in the fall, and then come back in the spring to smooth the field up with a field cultivator or disk harrow.Deep tillage should fracture the soil and it therefore needs to be performed in relatively dry soil.Deep tillage can be performed in a living cover crop in the spring — if you use the modern, low disturbance subsoilers. So let subsoiling not deter you from planting a cover crop.The more tillage you do, the more you set yourself up for increased compaction problems in the future.last_img read more

Startup Cites Gains in Ground-Source Heat Pump Design

first_imgA tech startup that began as a “moonshot” project at Google X has raised $2 million in seed money as it promotes a more affordable type of ground-source heat pump.Details about the system developed by Dandelion were skimpy. The company says that it has developed “clean drilling technology” that will be much less disruptive to property than the current practice of drilling wells or excavating deep trenches for the heat exchange tubing the systems need.Its website says that the drill makes a bore “just a few inches wide” and a few hundred feet deep so a complete installation can be complete in two or three days with minimal disruptions to a customer’s property.It wasn’t clear whether Dandelion’s system, which it calls “geothermal heating and cooling,” represents any advance in the compressors, pumps, and other components of current ground-source heat pump technology or amounted only to a new way of drilling holes for the tubing. Green Basics: Heat PumpsIs a Ground-Source Heat Pump a Renewable Energy System?Are Affordable Ground-Source Heat Pumps On the Horizon? Lower costs also are promisedThe extensive excavation that ground-source heat pumps often require is one sticking point for some homeowners, and so is the cost. Many estimates from experts for a complete system top $40,000, with one as high as $50,000. (See Are Affordable Ground-Source Heat Pumps On the Horizon?). That’s far above the cost of competing technologies.Dandelion’s site says that homeowners will pay $20,000 for an installed system with no upfront costs. Monthly payments would be less than the $210 a homeowner using $2,500 worth of propane or fuel oil per year would pay.Dandelion is a spinoff from a two-year project at X, Google’s subsidiary for long-shot projects, according to an announcement posted at BusinessWire. Alphabet calls X the “innovation engine” of the giant tech company.GBA is seeking additional information from Dandelion and will update this article if more information becomes available. RELATED ARTICLES For the time being, Dandelion says it is offering the systems to homeowners in upstate New York in the Hudson Valley and Capital region. There was no word on when the company planned an expansion beyond that region.last_img read more

Schools Serving Military Families Strive to Make Children Feel Welcome

first_imgAs schools across the country prepare to track the academic progress of military kids under education legislation passed in December, a number of districts already have programs in place to support the children of service members.Silver Strand Elementary School in the Coronado Unified School District, outside of San Diego, has a full-time military family life counselor and eight part-time specialists who work closely with small groups of students on reading, writing and math, reported EdSource. The tutors are funded by federal grants; the counselor is paid for by the Navy.“We want students to feel, first and foremost, welcome and secure,” said Principal Bill Cass.Five other schools in Southern California are part of the Welcoming Practices consortium, a DOD initiative of the University of Southern California aimed at helping schools develop support systems for military children. The schools have adopted practices such as prominently displaying military family photographs and establishing a welcome center to ease the registration process for newly arrived military kids.At Chula Vista’s Veterans Elementary School, a mobile app developed by the consortium helps military families connect to programs and after-school activities run by their school district, the community and DOD, according to the story.Starting in the 2017-18 school year, students from military families will be assigned an identification number that will allow schools to monitor test scores, graduation rates and other results.About 60,000 military dependents live in California, but in many cases school districts don’t always know which students are from military families or how to address the challenges facing them. The problem is especially prevalent in “outlier districts where there isn’t a concentration of military-connected children,” said Kate Wren Gavlak, chair of the Military Interstate Children’s Compact Commission.
