  • Blockchain Technology: A Lifeline to Small-Scale Farmers

    By Gregory Heilers

    Published 2 years, 6 months ago

    By selling through the blockchain, farmers living in all types of economies, from developing to post-industrial, have the opportunity to increase their sales and profit margins, while enhancing food safety... For example, Edwin highlighted the FoodCoin Ecosystem and its thriving 1000EcoFarms platform, which allow small farms to market directly to consumers. Unlike the Internet, blockchain technology does not allow for participants to hide in obscurity, but actually brings greater transparency to each transaction... 21st Century Farmers Increase Revenues with Smart(er) ContractsUp until now, as Edwin explained, globalization has allowed massive corporations to leverage their economies of scale and “push the small and medium-scale producers and processors” out of local markets, both in the US and abroad. Family farmers across America know well just how small the community has grown in the past century...

    Role of the Virtual marketplace in facilitating trade challenges

    By Ammar Alshami

    Published 9 months ago

    It is basically a non-physical bazaar that exists in spatial digital dimensions and provides one-click access to sellers and interested buyers... The superiority of the virtual marketplace over an e-commerce website can be understood from the fact that it totally eliminates the overhead costs for vendors such as designing and maintenance of the website, paying hosting fees, accounting software and burdens of ensuring secure payments. A virtual marketplace has it all... This has led to many virtual markets to develop a mobile app that virtually puts the whole range of vendors into customer’s pocket... The importance of virtual marketing place can be seen from the fact that Amazon has started delivering organic fruits and vegetables in 2017 and in the same year Toys R US has filed for bankruptcy in 2018 and announced the closure of their stores all across USA and UK...

    This Earth Day, let us remember those who are actually In The Arena

    By AgFuse Administrator

    Published 1 years, 6 months ago

    Farmers seem to be easy targets these days. We are bad because we grow GMO crops (so that we can spray less pesticides) and we are bad when we spray our crops with pesticides (but it’s non-GMO!)... However, for those of us who are actually “in the arena”, we know the truth about what we do and the impacts (both good and bad) our farming practices have on the earth... The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat... Cover crops, no-till, crop system diversity, variable rate fertilizing, even GMOs (yes GMOs!) are all contributing towards a sustainable farming industry...

    How the small Farmer can Acquire more Farms using Leverage.

    By Robert Morgan

    Published 1 years, 4 months ago

    Going Private and Leveraged BuyoutGoing private refers to the transformation of a public corporation into a privately held firm. A leveraged buyout (LBO), financed largely by borrowing, is the acquisition of the stock or assets of a public company by a small group of investors. The buying group may be sponsored by buyout specialists or by investment bankers... In the so-called reverse LBOs, returns to the shareholders (who now included the key personnel) were in the 50 to 60 percent range. For the small agricultural farmer, this is an excellent strategy as I myself have always been adamant about the term Growth through Acquisition...

    A New Era of Farm Employees: Farm Technicians vs. Farm Hands?

    By Gregory Heilers

    Published 1 years, 5 months ago

    At the same time, hundreds of farm technician job listings across the US, and the rise of precision agriculture and software, clearly evidence the need for technologically-savvy farm technicians in the 21st century agricultural industry... These paradigms consider tractors, front end loaders, and other devices as superior or more technically skilled work than manual labor... From there, the 60s saw the introduction of the motorbike, “drastically reducing the time required to perform tasks... Despite the fact that Joel disagreed with technology being the sole answer to on-farm challenges, he did point out its uses in marketing, complying with food supply chain regulations, and navigating “financial transactions and legalities, intricacies of liability insurance, health insurance, etc... ”Tech-Savvy Farm Labor is Here to StayWhile farming has always been a career for the “resourceful and mechanically handy,” as John put it, “as technology increases, there is a need for an increased capability to work with software, e...

    How Yield Champions Use Cover Crops for Growing Higher Bushels

    By Laura Barrera

    Published 1 years, 5 months ago

    5 bushelsPlanting corn after corn usually results in a yield hit in the subsequent corn crop. While Russell Hedrick didn’t intend for his yield-winning corn to follow corn — most of his farm is in a corn-soybean rotation, occasionally with some small grains — it proved just how beneficial cover crops can be in a mono-cropping situation... His intention with the small grains was to sequester carbon, build soil organic matter, suppress weeds and improve the soil’s water retention as well as water infiltration rates, while the legumes were used for balancing the carbon-to-nitrogen ratio... Typically a farmer would have to apply 320 units of nitrogen to achieve those kinds of yields, but Hedrick only applied 140 units, adding that the stalk nitrate samples they pulled after harvest indicated they could’ve gone with as little as 100 units... “Those cover crops coming into the equation have really helped us with our profitability...

    Ten Ways to Increase Your Farm's Profits in 2019

    By AgFuse Exclusive Content

    Published 1 years, 1 week ago

    Why Your TCOP Matters By knowing your TCOP, you can set price targets that allow you to lock in profitable prices... The good news is that, once you’ve done this exercise for your farm, you can review the numbers annually and make quick changes by tweaking any necessary information about your operation... First, brew about a gallon of coffee... If not, you’ll want to begin categorizing your input purchases for each crop and, ideally, each practice for that crop (for example, Corn > Fertilizer > Nitrogen)... Ideally, you will take your farm’s ten-year average for the relevant crops and use those numbers to determine a good average yield to use when computing your TCOP...

    4 Steps to Building Soil Organic Matter in the South

    By Laura Barrera

    Published 1 years, 3 months ago

    While it only makes up a small percentage of most soils, the Sustainable Agriculture Research & Education (SARE) says it’s the “very foundation for healthy and productive soils” — and the more organic matter there is, the better the results... One percent of organic matter in the top 6 inches of soil holds approximately 27,000 gallons of water per acre... With the region’s warm temperatures and high rainfall, conventional wisdom has always suggested that the challenge to increase soil organic matter would require an enormous effort for the farmer... The key to increasing organic matter, he says, is to follow and implement the NRCS’ principles of soil health — with the foundation of that strategy focused on growing a diverse mix of cover crops when land would otherwise be fallow. Minimize soil disturbanceThe first principle is to minimize physical, chemical and biological disturbance to the soil, Kloot says, recalling Dakota Lakes Research Farm research manager Dwayne Beck’s comment that “tillage is a catastrophic event in the soil...
