ant hill mulch improves soil moisture

Ant hills can actually serve as a mulch, according to research done in China. Credit: T. Li.Ants can be annoying little insects. In your home, they make army-like lines to any crumbs on your floor. In your home's frame, carpenter ants can do a job of eating away your walls. But what about outside? Do ants play a positive role in your yard? Your garden? What about in a farm field?
Research undertaken by scientists in China reveals that ants are hardworking and beneficial insects. In the activities of their daily lives, ants help increase air, water flow, and organic matter in soil. The work done by ants even forms a type of mulch that helps hold water in the soil.Ants are busy insects. They dwell in the soil, and build their homes by burrowing tiny holes, channels, and chambers. Soil scie

new study sheds light on how mosquitoes wing it

In the past technology has not been capable of capturing high speed wing movements, but recent science developments have made it possible to track and understand the wing movements of flies.

myerscough college farm leads the way in real time milk analysis

Myerscough College’s Lodge Farm is to become the first in the UK to invest in state-of-the-art technology that instantly analyses cow’s milk at source.Afimilk’s Milk-Lab is an innovative in-line system that has been developed over the last decade in Israel. It works by recording data on milk produced from each cow in a herd. The AfiLab element of the system acts as a real-time analyser of the milk’s components, accurately measuring levels of fat, protein, lactose, blood detection and 10-day average Somatic Cell Count banding. This enables the farm to quickly identify and act on any potential feeding or health issues, improving milk production, milk quality and the longevity of the herd.James Oddie is Myerscough College’s Director of Farming Innovations and Operations, and explains how the

From the click of a button from your phone, tablet or computer, Farm-r allows farmers to easily connect with each other to share machinery and transact securely.   How Does the Platform Work? Farm-r is building a community where machinery owners earn more from assets they already own and machinery renters save money by not having to buy a seasonal piece of machinery - for many it will re-duce the need for ow

to ensure constant food supply, edible dormice give up their favourite food

Rodents such as the edible dormouse feed preferentially on high-energy seeds. They deliver the energy needed for reproduction and help juvenile animals put on the necessary fat reserves before their first hibernation season. But this important food source is not available every year. Beech trees save energy by producing seeds only in certain years, and on a large scale, these years are called mast years. Edible dormice adapt to this cycle with a pragmatic choice of territory. A long-term study by researchers from Vetmeduni Vienna has now shown for the first time that edible dormice avoid areas with a high beech density. Instead, they prefer areas with a balanced mix of conifers and beech trees. The alternative food source allows the rodents to survive non-mast years without having to move

the importance of farm benchmarking

With falling farm incomes and low commodity levels looking set to continue into 2016, it is more important than ever for farm businesses to start taking a closer look at their numbers. Benchmarking your business to similar farms is just one way to do this, and it is a useful tool in assessing farm profitability. With many services available to farmers, Rachel Lawrence explains the benchmarking tools available from the Farm Business Survey.What is the Farm Business Survey?Established in 1936, the Farm Business Survey (FBS) collects and publishes detailed analysis of the financial and physical performance of almost 2,000 farms across England, every year. The resulting numbers are used across the farming sector providing the basis to agricultural costings books, industry advice and parliament

i wrote a blog about small farms

Guest blog by Vicki Hird, MSc, FRES, @vickihird, Campaign Coordinator at Sustain and Independent Food and Environment Consultant...I wrote a blog which suggested we need to consider how we protect farm diversity and the smaller farm sector. There were, it seems, ‘extreme’ elements in my blog which I had not intended. Yet I had intended to provoke a response.I wanted to hear if there is general support for maintaining a dynamic farm diversity – against a backdrop of a new, post-brexit farm support system being developed and major trade liberalisation. If support was there then how should we fix it given that up till now, the UK has been highly adverse to any measures that would specifically safeguard a mix of sizes by assisting smaller farm businesses over larger.What could we mean by dynam

whiteflies provide insight into stabilizing manmade drones during takeoff

When whiteflies take off, they don't just spread their wings and fly. Just .03 of an inch long, these tiny insects possess a variety of sophisticated techniques that provide them with exceptional stability in the air. Tel Aviv University researchers now say that they may hold the secret to stabilizing the take-off of small robotic manmade flyers such as miniaturized drones.TAU research presented at a recent Israel Academy of Sciences and Humanities conference explores how whiteflies, which belong to the order of insects called Hemiptera, successfully take off without flapping their wings, which are 28% longer than their bodies. They raise only their wingtips to provide air resistance and stabilize. The presentation was based on new research following an earlier study published by the Journ

how do animals see in the dark?

Megalopta genalis. Credit: United States Geological SurveyOn a moonless night, light levels can by more than 100m times dimmer than in bright daylight. Yet while we are nearly blind and quite helpless in the dark, cats are out stalking prey, and moths are flying agilely between flowers on our balconies.
While we sleep, millions of other animals rely on their visual systems to survive. The same is true of animals who inhabit the eternal darkness of the deep sea. In fact, the overwhelming majority of the world's animals are primarily active in dim light. How is their formidable visual performance possible, especially in insects, with tiny eyes and brains less than the size of a grain of rice? What optical and neural strategies have they evolved to allow them to see so well in dim light?To
