    Nuisance Lawsuits are Taking a Bite Out of Big Pork

    By Maria Dampman

    Published Aug 17, 2018 

    With 23 more lawsuits and 488 more plaintiffs to go, more and more large-scale farmers and CAFO operators are increasingly worrying if it is just a matter of time when they will have their day in court, too... A Little Background on the SubjectBecause we need farmers to produce the food we eat, in the past there have been protections for farmers against what are called nuisance lawsuits... The farm was there before they moved there, and the law reasoned the plaintiff should have done more due diligence before purchasing the property next to a working farm... Additionally, Haley also mentions that pig farming is probably one of the most polluting agricultural activities, especially as it exists with the pig-excrement filled anaerobic lagoons... After all, $85 billion of the state economy comes from agricultural pursuits including the estimated 9 million hogs on over 2,300 farms state-wide...

    7 Key Components of an Agricultural Warehouse

    By Corey Tyner

    Published Apr 12 

    These are the main things you should want in your agricultural warehouse and why each of them matters so much. Weatherproof ExteriorThe main issue some people have in the long-term with poor quality agricultural warehouses is that they didn't pay enough attention to the exterior of the building... Ample Space for StorageWhen building your agricultural warehouse: ensure that it's larger than you initially need it to be... Always build within budget, but give yourself the room your business deserves so it can grow in time without you having to eventually build another agricultural warehouse... This includes following any rules about adding industrial pipe insulation, any height laws, and whatever storage rules are in place for your type of agricultural business...

    The Best Business Entity Structure for Farms

    By Tyler Davis

    Updated Jun 20, 2020 

    One of the most common questions I receive as a tax professional is “What type of business entity should I choose?” Most new business owners are overwhelmed at this decision and do not fully understand the differences between types of entities. This article will explain rules, filing requirements, and benefits of the main type of business entities: sole proprietorship, LLC, Partnership, S-Corporation, and C-Corporation... Because this type of entity is not separate from its owner, the owner has personal liability if the company is the subject of a lawsuit... ) could also be subject to the lawsuit...

    How Brazilian Big Agriculture is Destroying the Brazilian Amazon

    By Maria Dampman

    Published Apr 4, 2018 

    The rampant deforestation of the Amazon began in the 1970s when the government of Brazil determined they needed to build over 9,000 miles of roads help integrate the rainforest with the populated bordering areas. As the deeper parts of the rainforest became accessible, development of these lands became possible, and once begun, continued at an alarming rate. Farmers, loggers and cattle ranchers cleared forest to create grazing land as well as to grow highly profitable crops like soy... Since these changes were passed, Brazil has seen a distinct rise in new deforestation, as soy and cattle farmers have little respect for laws without consequences... There has even been talk of the Ruralists allowing for mining and other agricultural activities within lands scheduled for conservation...

    20 Years Later: What Roundup Ready Crops Taught Us About Weed Management

    By Amanda Allworth

    Published Aug 21, 2018 

    It’s been over two decades since the first Roundup Ready crops were planted in commercial fields. At the time of introduction, the technology was revolutionary for farmers, who found a highly effective and convenient chemistry to control a broad spectrum of weeds. Roundup Ready corn and soybeans quickly became the norm in fields across the United States, and as a result, application of glyphosate increased dramatically... The agricultural community certainly made mistakes with the introduction and use of Roundup Ready technology... Following the label isn’t only the law, it’s also one of the best ways to ensure that new technology remains available in the future...

    "Ag data was one of the biggest buzzworthy topics in the industry in 2016 and is almost certainly expected to continue throughout 2017. Todd Janzen, an Indiana agricultural lawyer who grew up on a Kansas grain and livestock farm, has spent some time thinking about what trends will matter the most this year."
    "'I think 2017 will be the year when farmers demand results to part with their ag data,' he writes in the Janzen Ag Law Blog. 'The promise that ag data will someday pay dividends will no longer be enough.'"
    "In particular, Janzen says these five trends will be worth watching in 2017."

    Agricultural Intellectual Property Protection in Thailand

    Abstract

    Technology creation is a key element determining a country’s position in the competitive global arena. In Thailand, the intellectual property protection has been viewed as a tool for developed countries to gain business advantage over less developed countries. However, legislation with a section that provides protection for intellectual property (IP) was introduced in Thailand more than a century ago. Realizing that the country would develop further through innovation, the country has continuously issued and revised IP laws. Agriculture is the main pillar of Thailand’s economic system. Currently, the rights on intellectual property related to agriculture can be exclusively and legally gained and protected in various forms; i.e. patent, petty patent, trade secret, trade mark, geographic indicator, plant variety protection as well as copyright. IP infringer can face both criminal and civil lawsuits. To accelerate the court cases, the Central Intellectual Property and International Trade Court (CIPITC), a specialized court, was established in 1997 to handle all of IP infringements (criminal prosecution, civil enforcement, border measures, anti-counterfeiting online). To avoid the legal action against a small farmer, large commercial enterprises use additional business strategies to maximize the protection measure of their agriculture’s intellectual property.

    I wish a Happy 4th of July to all my fellow patriots. This country was founded by agriculturalists (https://modernfarmer.com/2013/07/the-founding-fathers-on-farming/). Attached is a picture my son-in-law shared and which I will share with you:
