As in most other farming situations, the applications in arable farming are centered around improving your biggest asset – your soil. So the aim is to get biological activity cranked up. That means effective organic matter recycling, to build humus – the food for your soil and plants, Improvements in nitrogen fixation, greater micorrhyzal activity, leading to more effective nutrient availability. In addition, if short term crops are your main activity, these are generally high value and come under periods of disease and pest pressures during the growing phase. During these periods EM is targeted as a foliar application to crops, this has 2 main functions, firstly it creates better growing conditions and leads to a stronger healthier plant. Secondly it provides competitive exclusion, which means that it out-competes pathogens for space, by inoculating the leaf surfaces with beneficial microbes.
People first started to grow crops about 12,000 years ago. They discovered that certain wild plants, which produced seeds that were ground for flour to make bread, could be made to grow in fields. Crop, or arable, farming had begun. Today, huge swathes of land that were once natural grasslands or woodlands are under cultivation. Finding new land to farm is sometimes so important that tropical rainforest, desert and wetlands are turned into farmland. Even land under the sea has been claimed to find more room for crops.
Arable farming means that only crops are grown on a farm and then used or sold by farmer according to his needs.
The arable farming needs slightly sloping land, fertile soil with balanced moisture i.e not too dry or wet, warm climate to support growth and suitable machinery and human resources to work. The Southern and Eastern part of the UK has many arable farms.
Large-scale arable farming has been made possible by new technology. In the late 19th century it took hundreds of workers to harvest a large wheat crop, but today it can be done by just one person driving a combine harvester.
