One years worth of data was presented at the SWROC Summer Field Day. Preliminary findings show that nutrient loads coming from an alternative system were lower than their con- ventional counterparts. Alternative production consists of diverse crop rota- tions with small grain, corn, soybeans, buckwheat and perennials like alfalfa. It also can include cover crops, no herbicides or pesticides, and primarily green manures and livestock manure for fertilizer. Conventional production was dominated by a corn- soybean rotation and sup- ported by commercial fertil- izer, herbicides and pesti- cides. Nutrient runoff and sediment from agricultural land are one of the sources of non-point pollution (from many untraceable locations rather than a particular site) in the Minnesota River sys- tem. Agricultural conserva- tion practices on both con- ventional and alternative acres helps to reduce the total non-point nutrient load which also comes from point sources like municipal and industrial sources. SWROC soil scientist Jeff Strock said SWROC staff has collected three years of data compar- ing conventional and alter- native practices, and are doing data analysis for the remaining two years. SWROC's research plots enable testing of the differ- ent field management strate- gies on a field-sized scale resembling what occurs in an actual farm-based set- ting.

Researchers study soybean disease links Plant breeders and plant pathologists are studying possible links between two of the most sig- nificant soybean production issues. They're monitoring possible connections between Iron Deficiency Chlorosis (IDC) and Soybean Cyst Nematode (SCN). The two plant condi- tions have shown up in some of the same locations, including test plots operated by the University of Minnesota's Southwest Research and Outreach Center in southwestern MN. "We know that many of the areas studied for IDC also show high populations of SCN," said SWROC plant breeding scientist Lori Scott. IDC is a nutrient deficiency that affects the ability of soybean plants to absorb iron. It is often the cause of a stunted, yellowish appearance and reduced yields. It can show up in parts of fields rather than entire field sections. SCN is a microscopic roundworm that attacks soybean plants through their root systems. With smaller, nematode impacted roots, soybean plants often show restricted develop- ment followed by lower yields. Scott is looking to see whether genetic resist- ance to IDC is associated with genetic resistance to SCN. It's possible that the presence of one condition makes plants more suscepti- ble to the other or more impacted by its symptoms. She added that the two con- ditions co-existing in the same plants could have cumulative impacts, a com- bined loss of productivity greater that what either condition would produce by itself in a moderate stage. "It's something that has to be watched and possibly addressed in research," Scott said.
