climate-control VIA Agri. evolution practices

by climate-change 2022,

My Story; before 1970's conventional agri. farming tillage and harvest had general practice systems

1970's (early) came 1:conservational 2:minimum till 3:no-till 4:some ridge-till

all "till" types in order to conserve for economic and environment saving energy

late 70's: input cost up all types farm equipment increase in size to economize

1980's all motorized agri. equip. must meet "California emissions standards" for

greenhouse gasses and climate change so conservation, no-till and harvest full force to reduce cost , increase in size efficiency save environment and crop-rotation

eg; year1:prep-soil ,year 2:plant corn/harvest year 3:plant soys.in corn stalks/harvest year 4:plant 2nd year soy. in soy-stubble/harvest year3/4: plant winter wheat in soy.stubble/harvest year 4 all in no-till then

late 1980's GPS "Ground Positioning Satellite" guidance more precise and passes introduces and auto-steer for greater control efficiency less fuel consumed till ,spray , harvest less travel in field by satellite guide better climate environment more conservation

1990's all input cost excel. including fuel so all agri. equipment increase in size

eg. till-plant 1 unit , harvest combine from 20'to 30'-40' harvest heads less travel saves fuel. orn heads from 4 row to 6-8-12 row

Late 90's cover crops introduces for CO2 carbon sinks better for soil conditioning and climate control at farmer's input cost! some gov. programs enviro-assessment

2000's newer larger agri. equipment for higher fuel efficiency standard eg. DIF diesel-inject.-fluid for NO nitric-oxide . JD 1-2-3-4 tear emissions standards.

2000's now "Zone-till" fall 20'-30" spaces input no-till and fertilizer all by GPS/auto-steer in some cover-crop.

Late 2000's introduce 4Rs 1-R:right place 2-R right amount

3-R right analysis 4-R right time note : all to be mandated soon by environment

2021 "Nitrogen" for corn cost, placement are closely watched for excess or leaching so introduction to N stabilizers , N-serve, "Envita" a spray on microbial-enhancer will extract "N" from air to feed corn plant save up to 20% on liquid N requirements

Now 2000's in the transportation industry all road tractors meet Calif standards including DIF all new trailers manufactured of light-weight aluminum also wheels saving gross-weight more payload also some road tractors pulling 2-53' tailors save one tractor all at industry cost to save "Carbon" environment intern climate change

ALL "livestock" industry have "mandated" manure management enviro.-standard

in conclusion to "My story" we all in the Agricultural industry have done our best to be BMP best in management practices and " stewards " of our land . thanks
