    By Vijayalaxmi Kinhal

    Published Aug 14, 2020

    Blockchain Technology: A Lifeline to Small-Scale Farmers

    By Gregory Heilers

    Published Apr 14, 2018 

    Technology has been an integral part of agriculture since at least 5,000 years ago, documented through the use of ploughs in ancient Sumeria... Lest you think this is some fringe movement, or premature technology with no practical application, food industry giants such as Walmart, Nestlé, Dole, and Unilever are actively developing blockchain technology applications with IBM. The result? Walmart’s VP of food safety, Frank Yiannis, stated the company was “encouraged” by the potential for reducing the timeline of investigations into food-borne illness from weeks to seconds... While customers of large corporations like Walmart most likely won’t experience any trickle-down savings due to higher profit margins, they aren’t going to lose out entirely, either... Large corporations like Walmart that are “developing their own internal solutions on blockchain technology,” says Edwin, are going to remain “the main beneficiary, since they are saving costs in the short and long term...

    Precision Farming Solutions for Weeds in Soybean Farms

    By Vijayalaxmi Kinhal

    Updated Sep 10, 2020 

    The weed control measures used in soybean production need to be overhauled. The development of resistance in weeds has made current technology and management increasingly expensive and comes accompanied with heavy yield losses. Precision management solutions can reduce chemical use in several ways. Current Weed Management in SoybeansSoybean is important for the global economy as it is used as a source for oil and protein (for people and livestock) and as biodiesel. Soybean is the crop with the largest monoculture in the world and with 90% of it grown in Argentina, Brazil, the United States, China, and India...

    How Precision Technology can Tackle Cotton’s Irrigation and Pests’ Challenges in the 2020s

    By Vijayalaxmi Kinhal

    Updated Aug 7, 2020 

    The high-value returns from cotton as well as the higher costs of production should be ample incentives for adopting precision farming. The vagaries of climate change and its disruptions to the normal farm schedule only increases the value of this information technology for cotton. Climate Change is Altering Pest Attack PatternsIncreasing drought and extreme weather due to climate change are impacting cotton in unforeseen ways. The unpredictable changes in weather patterns aren’t just disturbing the environmental conditions needed for cotton crops. Experts noticed since 2019 that the feeding and reproductive patterns of pests have changed...

    The Issues Faced By The Fruit And Vegetable Importing Business

    By Ammar Alshami

    Published May 5 

    What is the Importing Business?Imports are the goods and services imported from other countries. International trade is carried out through these transactions, including exports and imports. Importing is important for the economy of a country because it provides its people with goods and services that may be scarce, high cost, or low quality in their own country. Moreover, foreign companies usually choose to export their products so they can earn a stable profit margin and also increase sales of their goods and services... While industry giants such as Walmart, Carrefour and Nestle have started implementing traceability solutions in a bid for more transparency, it has been difficult for supply chain transparency to gain more traction throughout the industry...

    Cover Crop Corner: Part 2 Cover Crop Economics: Long-term gains through holistic improvements

    By Feed the Soil, Feed the World

    Published Oct 13 

    In part two of this two-part series on the economics of cover crops, we explore how a holistic approach to taking care of resources comes with long-term gains. By GO SEEDThere are no “quick fixes” when it comes to the health of soils, the benefits take more than overnight to show up. While it takes time and deliberate care to learn how to enhance resources holistically within your own system, the general principles are relatively simple and can be significant cost savings. “Soil is the natural capital of the land,” explains Dr Shannon Cappellazzi, GO Seed Director of Research. “By making the investment in soil health, not only are you making an impact on all of the downstream ecosystem services that are related to soil functions, you are also regenerating the land for continued agricultural production...

    Competitiveness of Oil Palm Production Systems in Nigeria: A Policy Analysis Matrix Approach

    Author: Abdul-Qadir, M. I, Okoruwa, V. O. and Salman, K. K.

    Publisher: International Journal of Hybrid Information Technology

    Abstract

    There is demand-supply gap in palm oil production in the country, coupled with nonattainment of self-sufficiency in palm oil production in the country. Therefore, this study evaluates the competitiveness of oil palm production systems in Nigeria using policy analysis matrix. Data were collected with multistage sampling procedures through the administration of well-structured questionnaires. The results showed that oil palm production in Nigeria is classified into small, medium and large scale systems and the three systems are competitive in the production of palm oil and palm kernel under existing market prices. The private profits for the three production systems, the large, medium and small scale were N1, 131,350, N 607,443 and N 99,640 respectively, which indicates that the large scale system is more competitive at private levels followed by medium scale system. The social profits for small, medium and large scale systems were N 773, 649, N 1,023,067 and N 1,417,059 respectively, which implies comparative advantage of all the systems confirmed by DRC of 0.3806, 0.3639 and 0.2668 for small, medium and large scale systems respectively. Thus, Nigeria has comparative advantage in palm oil production for export. The net transfer and subsidy ratios were negative, which display poor protectionist policies and overall transfer of resources away from the production systems. In this study, it is concluded that palm oil production in Nigeria is competitive at private and social levels.

    #AgHistory - I wanted to share a little different bit of Ag history that is something of value even today: the drink referred to in the 1800's as switchel, or 'haymakers punch'. Switchel (or Switzle, or Swizzle) was an early American heritage beverage that was popular among farmers and sailors and dates back to the 1700's, but became popular in 1800's cookbooks. Think of it as the predecessor to Gatorade. If bought, it often came in a round stoneware canteen hollow in the center so that there was greater surface area to cool if the ring was placed in a creek or well to cool. There were variations of this drink dating back even to the Romans, but those variations used honey and a few different ingredients. Often sailors would add spiced rum rations to this. Here is an interesting link to a reprint of the 1964 Old Farmers Almanac: https://www.almanac.com/history-switchel. Give 'haymakers punch' a try; it may smell faintly of vinegar, but tastes pretty darn good, is full of electrolytes and potassium, and would be quite helpful in the tractor next summer. If you come out to visit "The Homeplace" at the Land Between the Lakes (1850's living history farm), you will see a switzle ring in the tool shed, and might see some of the interpreters drinking 'haymakers punch' in the heat of the day. This recipe from the mid 1800's: 1/2 gal water, 1/2 cup unsulphered or light molasses, 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar, and a heaping tablespoon of powdered ginger. Some recipes called for the use of maple sugar or syrup in lieu of molasses. Enjoy your haymakers punch!

    Yesterday, I gave you some food for thought when it comes to looking for work from home or remote work. Here is part 2 of part 3.

    If you have ADHD ants-in-the-pants like me, creating and sticking to structure for yourself may be a challenge. I had structure in the office that was created for me.
    Then, I worked from home and had to create it myself.

    YIKES.

    The first couple of months I was all over the place and I didn't know what to do first. I didn't get much done, but I will say my house had never been so clean!

    If this is a challenge for you, too, try this:

    1. Read articles on creating structure for yourself.

    2. Work for 45 minutes and take a break for 15.

    3. Set a kitchen timer that counts backwards so your 45-minute work time is driven by a sense of urgency and you actually get some stuff done.

    4. Put up a big ol' dry erase wall calendar and put the big stuff you want to get done on it. Use colored markers so its memorable-dry erase, not permanent.

    5. Use a steno notebook and make lists. I like stenos because it has lines across and one down the middle. Lines keep me in line. Walmart has them for like, 80 cents.

    Hope some of these suggestions help. Lemme know if you need help with putting together a resume or interviewing skills. Interviews are my thang!

    Have a WONDERFUL Wednesday!

    EU Call for Proposals: From Agrobiodiversity to dynamic value chains

    Activities shall release the value of so far underutilised and often genetically diverse crops, (including landraces and varieties) and promote their broader use in breeding, farming and in food/non-food value chains. They will improve the performance of the selected crop(s) in relation to specific characteristics (e.g. agronomic such as adaptability to climate related abiotic stresses or quality related traits) and address the corresponding needs for farm and land management. Activities will feed into the development of value chains, which provide opportunities to diversify farm activities and income as well as meet consumer demands for diversified products and/or for products with a local/regional identity. This will include developing and testing marketing channels with enhanced producer-consumer links.

    Application Deadline: 22 January 2020 17:00:00 Brussels time
