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

    By Gregory Heilers

    Published 4 months ago

    Traditional agricultural skills that made civilization possible are still alive and in use today. 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. It’s no surprise that tech-friendly millennials interested in farming are encouraged by these developments, which may make farming less labor intensive than in generations past... Satellite technology provides a broader view of agricultureTo assess the current state of affairs across the globe, I solicited the expert advice from one of the preeminent farmers in the United States, Joel Salatin, co-owner of Polyface Farm, and John Fargher, co-founder and COO of Australia-based cutting-edge farm management software, AgriWebb...

It is however important to distinguish its Members current state and its Associate Members current state. The MERCOSUR is a consummation of a likely, if not inevitable global economic marriage. It began its path of greater cooperation in International Trade Finance of Agriculture by the signing of the Iguazu Declaration, signed by Presidents Raul Alfonsin of Argentina and Jose Sarney of Brazil on November, 29, 1985...

    How Brazilian Big Agriculture is Destroying the Brazilian Amazon

    By Maria Dampman

    Published 6 months ago

    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. In the beginning, no one was aware of the disastrous environmental consequences of destroying the forest often described as “the lungs of the Earth... However, with the limited governmental ability to oversee the development of an enormous dense forest just slightly smaller than the continent of Australia, it wasn’t a surprise to anyone when eager farmers and cattlemen started to illegally clear additional land...

    ATV Safety Device

    By David Sullivan Ag Safety

    Published 6 months ago

    Can you lift 660lbs? The average ATV or Quad weighs in excess of 660lbs, and when they flip or roll, the rider can become entrapped underneath. When gravity and momentum are available the ATV will continue to roll causing costly damage to the machine. Roll cages and roll bars, all require a restraint in order to meet standards this makes them ineffective on an ATV because the rider needs freedom of movement to shift their weight in order to ride safely and effectively. These issues have lead to the creation of the CPD or Crush Protection Device, of which the Quadbar designed and manufactured in Australia is the most effective at preventing serious injury or death from a roll over by creating space between the ground and the ATV, or stoping the ATV from completing further rolls... Many Australian industries have fitted the Quadbar to their ATV fleets...

    I know this has nothing to do with farming in the U.S., but I would like to welcome aboard our new distributor in Australia.  Havvenny AustGro based out of Victoria .

    What is grand about this news is the fact that Australia has more hectares dedicated to organic farming than anywhere in the world.  I have to thank Hasim for all his efforts to get GroAloe™ into the country.  Australia has some of the strictest regulations in the world.  Just goes to show you the quality of our product.

    We are looking for people or companies that would be interested in distributing GroAloe™ in the U.S. and Canada.  We can provide bulk quantities for very large farming operations, 1 Kg for smaller operations and 11gram sachets for the small farmer and home garden.Just a side note.  Our first plant test were on tomatoes.  The plants treated with GroAloe™ were healthier and produce larger tomatoes and yielded about 50% more.

    The 11gram sachet has proven to be popular in Indonesia due to the fact that allows farmers to purchase product as needed.  Our sachets in display box is great for P.O.P. is stores.

    If you are interested in distributing or carrying or product in your store, drop me a line and I will load you up with what ever information you need.

    Row crop markets erode on big US yields and concern over implementation of additional US tariffs on PRC. Wheat, higher overnight on W Australia frosts, fades post biscuit (CWG says most areas 30-35 degrees while some in upper 20’s). Of greater importance is 2 week dry pattern across all of Australia.
