    As Americans migrate away from rural areas towards population centers, the impact on agriculture is correlated with that movement. The Food Institute examines the data, the legislative effects, as well as the technological ramifications of a declining farm population.

    Came across Regenerative Fund for Nature a couple of days ago, it's backed by Gucci, Saint Laurent, Bottega Veneta and other big name design houses. As @Mark Smith touched on recently, not sure we all have a firm grip on "regenerative" yet but I'm happy to see the funding and interest in it.

    What Agribusiness Data Can and Can't Tell You

    By Marjorie Valin

    Published Aug 2 

    In agribusiness, big data means collecting everything. The temperature of the air as you plant, the moisture of the kernel as you harvest, the exact coordinate of each weed you find; it all gets absorbed into the digital cloud, analyzed, and processed. The end result is that we know what seeds grow the best in different conditions, statistically speaking. However, this can lead to homogenized recommendations. Sure, the corn hybrid ‘SKY-3122’ may rate the best in some parts of the country, but does that mean it’s best for your customers’ farms? The all-time favorite food across the US may be a good old cheeseburger fresh off the grill, but try to make everyone eat one and you’ll end up with a lot of unhappy vegetarians...

    The Rationale for Commercial Solar Farms

    By Nicole Otte

    Published Jul 26 

    Many of the challenge’s facing solar farms and its application to commercial uses were overcome. The International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) (2021) reported the costs associated with development and use of solar energy continues to drop making solar energy cheaper than traditional fossil fuel energy. The costs of residential solar typically runs between $2 and $4 per watt. Comparatively, the cost of a commercial solar farm as reported by First Solar is about $1 per watt, where the economies of scale are in full effect with commercial solar farms benefiting both building owner and tenants. A solar farm is mainly a large array of solar energy systems used to produce enough power to energize residences to commercial buildings, offsetting the reliance on the macro-grid...

    "You should be able to tell from my blog that I am a big fan of soil health/regenerative agriculture. ... With all this in mind, however, ... I'm getting worried that we are trying to break this approach to farming and ranching down into a simplistic laundry list of specific things you have to do each and every year on each and every acre instead of recognizing that every acre is a little different and that every producer has a different reality. ... All I can suggest is that maybe we take a little time to step back from the checklist and take a broader view of what needs to be done on an individual farm or ranch."

    "There's a perspective that humans did this damage and it's our job to fix it, and that we should govern the process, and just let nature help when it can ... . Another view is that forest restoration is fundamentally natural, and that humans can assist it, but ultimately it should be governed by natural processes."

    "A holistic approach to climate-smart agriculture addresses the climate crisis while also meeting demand for food production, clean water, and thriving rural economies. Some great innovations that support these objectives receive far too little notice. The USDA should seek insights from innovative land stewards, particularly Indigenous communities and people of color, many of whom have long grown and consumed food in ways that benefit both their communities and land. This approach to regenerative agriculture --- a land management system that supports the entire ecosystem --- allows farmers to grow food, fuel, and fiber while enriching, instead of depleting, the soil and environment."

    Another potential revenue source for farmers.. carbon credits. Plant an extra crop in the off season or reduce plowing. Carbon credits are "still the wild west" but are gaining momentum.
