    What’s the function of Mycorrhiza?

    By Darren Chan

    Published 5 months ago

    Introduction of MycorrhizaExcessive dependence on chemical fertilizers can result in the destruction of a large number of beneficial microbial communities in the soil and a decrease in soil activity. To improve the current soil ecosystem with serious damage and improve soil fertility, it is imperative to supplement soil beneficial microorganisms. The application of microbial fertilizer is the most direct and effective method. Symbiotic bacteria are fungi that need to grow with plants, but do not harm plants and they are beneficial to plant growth. The symbiotic bacteria can grow together with the roots of some plants to form a special symbiont-exogenous mycorrhiza, which exchanges substances with each other through the mycorrhiza...

    How the small Farmer can Acquire more Farms using Leverage.

    By Robert Morgan

    Published 12 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. A variant of the LBO going-private transaction is the management buyout (MBO) in which a segment of the company is sold to its managers.

    How Brazilian Big Agriculture is Destroying the Brazilian Amazon

    By Maria Dampman

    Published 1 years, 2 months ago

    It is estimated that the Brazilian Amazon is home to over 200 million head of cattle and supplies about 25% of the world’s demand for beef. As more Eastern cultures adopt a Western diet, the need for beef products has increased exponentially. In 2016, meat exports from Brazil amounted to just short of €12 billion, making them the second largest exporter of beef behind the U... Additionally, the demand for beef products grows each year as specifically Russia and China are eating more beef.

    Uruguay now is now investing in USA farms; Read Why.

    By Robert Morgan

    Published 12 months ago

    The MERCOSUR Member;Uruguay, with a much smaller landmass and population then either Brazil or Argentina has as the largest sector of its Agricultural production, principally producing Rice, Wheat, Corn, Barley, Livestock, Cattle and Fish, therefore contributing to the BLOC’s extensive Export Import Trade. Agrilend views Uruguay is set to experience a period of structurally lower growth in the coming years, as investment into expanding agricultural production and re-export capacity is tempered and foreign capital begins to flow into Argentina as the new Argentine government liberalizes its investment environment. Nonetheless, Uruguay will continue to outpace Latin America's average real GDP expansion as the country's middle class supports private consumption growth. Inflation will remain elevated over the coming years as the Banco Central Del Uruguay will not implement significant policy measures to stymie price increases... The good news for American Farmers especially in Cattle, Beef, Livestock, Milk, Dairy, and Cheese is that since China is pretty much buying all of the countries agricultural products at a pace far faster than it can produce Uruguay as well as Argentina and Brazil are seeking to invest in American farms to deliver this needed deficit quickly! All i can say is Amercian farmers should be singing moooooooooooooooo! For this is great news! For more information please contact me at robertmorgan@agrilend...

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

    By Gregory Heilers

    Published 12 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. Technology may even be the antidote to a number of ills plaguing modern agriculture, which have led to a drastic decrease in the number of farms across the United States...

    How To Value a Farm Agricultural Business

    By Robert Morgan

    Published 12 months ago

    Business valuations are frequently performed when one company acquires another company, when a company is targeted for an acquisition, when a company’s capital structure is reorganized, when a company splits up, or when a company enters bankruptcy in liquidation or reorganization. The transactions may include entire or partial acquisitions, divestitures, liquidation, or recapitalization. Mergers will generally require both companies to be valued, while an acquisition may require only a single valuation. The terms of the transaction generally include cash, notes, stock, or a combination of these forms of payment...

    How to Source Farm Interns

    By Gregory Heilers

    Published 1 years, 3 weeks ago

    The Keenans were up to their elbows in infrastructure projects, animal husbandry, and a burgeoning farmstay business, and needed help in a bad way. Balancing a post and beam, lime plaster home construction project against caretaking goats and chickens, while juggling four human kids to boot, left the Keenans with little time for their personal lives. So, the family turned to the outside world for help. As a recent college grad excited about farming, I responded to their advertisement, and soon found my way to the delightful Keenan homestead... That land supports “just under 1,000 head of cattle, about 5,000 laying hens, 600 hogs per year, 20,000 broilers, and 2,000 turkeys...

    A Low-Cost IoT-Based System to Monitor the Location of a Whole Herd

    Authors: Francisco Maroto-Molina, Jorge Navarro-García, Karen Príncipe-Aguirre, Ignacio Gómez-Maqueda, José E. Guerrero-Gine, Ana Garrido-Varo and Dolores C. Pérez-Marín

    Journal Title: Sensors

    ISSN: 1424-8220 (Print)

    Publisher: MDPI AG

    Animal location technologies have evolved considerably in the last 60 years. Nowadays, animal tracking solutions based on global positioning systems (GPS) are commercially available. However, existing devices have several constraints, mostly related to wireless data transmission and financial cost, which make impractical the monitorization of all the animals in a herd. The main objective of this work is to develop a low-cost solution to enable the monitorization of a whole herd. An IoT-based system, which requires some animals of the herd being fitted with GPS collars connected to a Sigfox network and the rest with low-cost Bluetooth tags, has been developed. Its performance has been tested in two commercial farms, raising sheep and beef cattle, through the monitorization of 50 females in each case. Several collar/tag ratios, which define the cost per animal of the solution, have been simulated. Results demonstrate that a low collar/tag ratio enable the monitorization of a whole sheep herd. A larger ratio is needed for beef cows because of their grazing behavior. Nevertheless, the optimal ratio depends on the purpose of location data. Large variability has been observed for the number of hourly and daily messages from collars and tags. The system effectiveness for the monitorization of all the animals in a herd has been certainly proved.

    A Values-Based Approach to Exploring Synergies between Livestock Farming and Landscape Conservation in Galicia (Spain)

    Authors: Paul Swagemakers, Maria Dolores Dominguez Garcia, Amanda Onofa Torres, Henk Oostindie and Jeroen C. J. Groot

    Journal: Sustainability 2017, 9(11), 1987; doi:10.3390/su9111987

    Publisher: MDPI AG

    The path to sustainable development involves creating coherence and synergies in the complex relationships between economic and ecological systems. In sustaining their farm businesses farmers’ differing values influence their decisions about agroecosystem management, leading them to adopt diverging farming practices. This study explores the values of dairy and beef cattle farmers, the assumptions that underpin them, and the various ways that these lead farmers to combine food production with the provision of other ecosystem services, such as landscape conservation and biodiversity preservation. This paper draws on empirical research from Galicia (Spain), a marginal and mountainous European region whose livestock production system has undergone modernization in recent decades, exposing strategic economic, social and ecological vulnerabilities. It applies a Q-methodology to develop a values-based approach to farming. Based on a sample of 24 livestock farmers, whose practices promote landscape conservation and/or biodiversity preservation, the Q-methodology allowed us to identify four ‘farming styles’. Further analysis of the practices of the farmers in these groups, based on additional farm data and interview material, suggests that all 24 farmers valorize landscape and nature and consider cattle production and nature conservation to be compatible within their own farm practices. However, the groups differed in the extent to which they have developed synergies between livestock farming and landscape conservation. We conclude by discussing how rural development policy in Galicia could strengthen such practices by providing incentives to farmers and institutionally embedding a shift towards more diversified farming and product development.
