Growers can do something to attract bees to orchards

Far more solitary bees than social bumblebees and honeybees were caught in pan traps in apple trees in 2016. Virtually all the solitary bees were ground nesting bees. Solitary bees require nesting sites and the fruit growers can do something to increase the number of sites.

Organic equals conventional agriculture in the tropics

A long-term study in Kenya shows that maize yields and nutrient uptake in the organic farming systems are quite similar to conventional systems. Due to premium prices, organic systems are more profitable for farmers than conventional ones.

One step closer to unsprayed apple production

Apples and pears grown under a narrow plastic roof or a plastic awning are less likely to be infected by scab and fruit rots. In fact, the results are so convincing that a profitable production of unsprayed fruit, at an acceptable price, is within reach.

Post-harvest effect of cover crops on creeping thistle Circium arvense

Cover crops produce a post-harvest effect on weed control by moving nitrogen (N) to the topsoil. This enhances the N uptake of succeeding barley crop, especially at early stages, and limits the access of thistle to the subsoil N.
