Crops and Man with Drs. Thomas Stalker and Marilyn Warburton
Humans and the crops they use have co-evolved across the centuries. This episode, Drs. Thomas Stalker and Marilyn Warburton discuss three major periods of time within this relationship as well as misconceptions we might have about our predecessors and where we’re headed next.
The Circular Bionutrient Economy with Dr. Rebecca Nelson
When nutrients are taken up in the field, they often find their way into the fruits and vegetables that we enjoy. But once we eat them, how can they get back to the fields for future crops? This episode, Rebecca will discuss her work in returning nutrients from human waste back into the soil.
Bridging the Farm to Research Gap with Heather Hampton+Knodle
Research is crucial for the advancement of agriculture. However, research solutions must also be feasible for the farmers who will be implementing them. This episode, Heather Hampton+Knodle will discuss her many hats in the worlds of agriculture, policy, and research solutions, as well as her journey as a farmer and research collaborator.
Regenerative Agriculture and The Living Soil Handbook with Jesse Frost
Regenerative agriculture focuses on improving soil health by disturbing the soil as little as possible, keeping the ground covered as much as possible, and keeping the ground planted as much as possible. In this episode, farmer Jesse Frost of the No-Till Market Garden podcast walks us through these three tenets, how they can help farmers, and how researchers and growers can better connect.
Regenerative Agriculture and IPM with Dr. Thomas Green
Integrated pest management, or IPM, is a system by which pests are controlled using informed decision-making techniques. Regenerative agriculture is an approach to farming that focuses on soil health and environmental recovery. In this episode, Tom Green finishes out our five part mini-series on IPM by walking us through how these two systems can work together to improve soil health, reduce pests, and help improve farmer profits.
Lake-Dredged Sediments and Soil Health with Dr. Angélica Vázquez-Ortega and Russell Brigham
Shipping accounts for a large portion of the Ohio economy. Channels therefore need regular dredging to stay clear. In the past, such sediments were often released back into Lake Erie. However, as this can cause environmental problems, the Ohio legislature banned the practice of open dumping in Lake Erie in 2020. Dr. Angélica Vázquez-Ortega and Russell Brigham have been working to find new uses for these sediments. We discuss their work testing the efficacy of lake-dredged sediments as farm amendments.
