Stinkbugs 
Insects are among the greatest threats to agriculture. Tennessee farmers have seen some pests disappear, but in the process, new ones emerged, and they are attacking fields.



(2 mentions)

Farmer Research 
There's agricultural research going on all over Tennessee, but much of it can't happen without the input of farmers. UT AgResearch works with producers to test crops and growing conditions.

Ag Year Preview 
Spring is almost here, and it’s just about time for Tennessee farmers to plant their 2012 crops. All indications are - things are looking good for producers, following what was a good year in 2011.



(1 mention)

Weed Progress 
Weeds are a nuisance to gardeners, but downright devastating to those who farm for a living. But now experts and farmers say the worst may be behind us.



(1 mention)

High Input Costs 
Food prices have been going up, but so are the production costs for farmers who grow what we eat. Farm expenses are at record highs for Tennessee row-crop producers.



(1 mention)

Record Corn Yields 
In the future, getting the most out of our land will be critical for Tennessee agriculture and the world's food supply. That will involve increasing row crop yields through science and smart farming.



(1 mention)

Little River Facility 
It’s long been an issue in farming – how can we be productive in agriculture and still protect the environment? UT Ag-Research has a new facility dedicated to that cause.



(1 mention)

Weed Control Strategy 
'The Minute' host Jake Turner interviews Larry Steckel on weed control.

No-Till Hills 
There was a time when sloped land was just about useless because of frequent soil erosion. But now, hilly terrain can be productive. 'No-till” farming makes it possible.

Cotton Module Picker 
More and more producers are using cotton module pickers to get their crops from the field to the gin.
