  • Blockchain Technology: A Lifeline to Small-Scale Farmers

    By Gregory Heilers

    Published Apr 14, 2018

    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...

    Supporting Small-to-Midsized Agriculture and Localized Food Distribution During COVID-19

    By Melissa Rouse

    Published Mar 30

    Summary of Needs In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are seeing a variety of challenges emerge for the farmers, ranchers, processors, and producers that are working across US agriculture to keep our country fed. As “shelter-in-place” mandates stir up consumer worries and instigate stockpiling across the country, small-mid sized farmers and ranchers are coming face-to-face with a variety of challenges across inventory, infrastructure, and cash flow. Overall, there is a lot of pressure on the supply chain at this time - and more on the horizon. It is our goal at FS6 to aggregate information and to identify the gaps in support; we need to work together to realign resources in support of those that are working to feed the American population and to help those that are focused on raising food locally, sustainably, and humanely to weather the challenging times ahead... Landscape OverviewFor the many small farmers and ranchers that sell primarily into the restaurant industry, things have come to a screeching halt over the past week...

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

    By AgFuse Administrator

    Published Apr 22, 2018

    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 Jun 13, 2018

    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...

    Role of the Virtual marketplace in facilitating trade challenges

    By Ammar Alshami

    Published Jan 17, 2019

    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...

    Top 4 ways to stimulate root growth

    By Darren Chan

    Published Sep 3, 2019

    Importance of healthy rootsFirst, they anchor the plant in place, resisting the forces of wind and running water or mudflow. Secondly, the root system takes in oxygen, water and nutrients from the soil, to move them up through the plant to the stems, leaves, and blooms... Last but not least, scientists have recently discovered that roots actually secrete compounds that affect the microorganisms in the soil, which can help protect the plants from disease and encourage it to absorb nutrients from the soil... Potassium can thicker plants' cell walls... Root Stimulators HormonesAuxin is a plant hormone that plays an important role in plant growth and development as a regulator of many biological processes, especially IAA, IBA & NAA...

    Starting from Scratch - How Beginning Farmers can Break Ground

    By Gregory Heilers

    Published Sep 9, 2018

    Land For Good’s work includes helping beginning farmers in New England “think through these options, such as rental agreements, to better allow them to start a farm on a financial scale they feel comfortable with... For many first generation farmers, the numbers actually can work out much better if they at least start out renting acreage, and perhaps continue to farm on leased acreage (at least partially) in the future... ”Of course, farmers need to make sure they only sign “intelligent, well-crafted lease agreements that allow the farmer to feel secure on their land. ” Still, for cash-flow reasons, “Starting your business on securely rented land allows beginning farmers to put more capital into equipment and infrastructure, and may allow them to realize earnings from their farm much sooner. ” In addition, renting allows “flexibility in an operation, to either expand, consolidate, or even relocate” in response to situations out of their control, such as changing market conditions...

    Top 5 Reasons Why Black Oats Are The Best Beginner's Cover Crop

    By Cover Crops

    Published Sep 14, 2018

    It's a fact: cover crops tend to make good farmers into great farmers and average farmers into bad farmers. Cover crops work... What does this mean? The lower C-to-N ratio will allow the black oats to break down quicker than cereal rye, returning valuable nutrients and organic particles back into your dirt that can be used by the crop immediately following the cover crops... Black oats don’t bolt: they're easily killed with roundup or mechanically via a roller/crimper and they decompose quickly for easy planting conditions... And give black oats a try! You’ll be a better farmer for it and your land (and wallet) will thank you...
