  • How Feasible is Organic Corn?

    By Vijayalaxmi Kinhal

    Published Aug 14, 2020 

    Organic corn is both economically viable and technically feasible. Even though organic corn yield is 32% lesser, the prices are double that of conventional corn, guaranteeing attractive returns on investment (ROI) to growers. Moreover, there is growing technical information available to advise organic corn production. Growing Demand for Organic CornThe demand for organic corn is expected to grow globally at a CAGR of 1. 9% and amount to 1170 million USD by 2026...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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

    Big data for small farms enhance resource use and profitability

    The APOLLO crop growth monitoring service provides continuous information on crop conditions. Early alerts of infestations and nutrient deficiencies aid in quick action and reduced losses. The crop yield estimation service helps farmers estimate expected income and make decisions about whether to sell or store produce.

    Move over Farmers’ Almanac and make room for the APOLLO weather forecast and alerts service. APOLLO delivers highly-localised field-level weather conditions including temperature, humidity and wind magnitude and direction.
