  • What Farmers Need to Know About Mycorrhizae

    By Laura Barrera

    Published Nov 2, 2018 

    If someone asked you, “How do plants take up the water and nutrients they need?” you’d probably tell them through the roots. But did you know that for many crops, those roots aren’t working alone?That’s because most plant species associate with mycorrhizal fungi. What is mycorrhizal fungi? University of Alberta biological scientist JC Cahill says that mycorrhizas are actually the interaction between a fungus and a plant. Although there are many different types of mycorrhizae, the only one crop farmers need to be concerned about is arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF), as 65% of plant species associate with it... And barring anything extreme that’s happened to your fields — such as mining or a toxic spill — your soils should already have AMF in it, says Miranda Hart, a soil microbial ecologist at the University of British Columbia...

    Understanding Agrilend and the MERCOSUR

    By Robert Morgan

    Published Jun 17, 2018 

    The MERCOSUR is a powerful dominant force in international global markets and originally began with its Members;Bolivia, Venezuela, Paraguay, Uruguay, Brazil and Argentina as direct Member Countries, in South America, however it is rapidly gaining momentum by its cooperative Associate Member Countries in Central America and its international prowess relies on its ability to cooperate confidential public private initiative agreements with cooperating countries desiring to do corporate business attached with attractive concensions by partnering with MERCOSUR for the sake of obtaining finance, capital, agricultural export or import, natural resources and as an exchange for favor. 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... In the Pre-Columbian era, Central America was inhabited by the indigenous peoples of Mesoamerica to the north and west and the Isthmo-Colombian peoples to the south and east... It includes twelve sovereign states (Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Guyana, Paraguay, Perú, Suriname, Uruguay, and Venezuela), a part of France (French Guiana), and a non-sovereign area (the Falkland Islands, a British Overseas Territory though this is disputed by Argentina)...

    Canada launched Forest Bioeconomy Framework to enhance the Sustainability of the Forest Sector

    The Forest Bioeconomy Framework establishes a path that will result in a forest bioeconomy that identifies sustainable bio-based materials from healthy forests available for high added-value manufacturing. The framework highlights innovation, collaboration, and investment and opens the door to further enhancing the sustainability of the forest sector through research, innovation and strong public policy.

    Canada's forest sector provides 230,000 direct and nearly 700,000 indirect jobs across the country and is also a leader in the fight against climate change. The forest sector was the first major Canadian industry to launch a comprehensive plan to reduce carbon through its 30 X 30 Climate Change Challenge which alone can help the federal government achieve 13 per cent of its carbon reduction goal by 2030 as committed at the 2015 United Nations Climate Change Conference held in Paris.

    #AgHistory
    Ever wonder when field drainage was developed, or where drainage tile got its name? The earliest I can find reference to was from translated works of Palladius, (Rutilius Taurus Aemilianus Palladius) the fourth century agricultural writer. His works were translated from Latin in the early 15th century. The Romans and later the British, used to dig trenches and fill with stones, pebbles, straw, or hedge branches (with the butts of the branches pointing towards the outflow). Where trees were available, they were hollowed out to form drains, with some apparently lasting nearly 2 centuries). There is actually quite a bit written about this subject and later includes mentioning digging clay out of a trench, placing a tapered wooden roll into the trench, then tamping the clay around the roll, then removing this large dowel or ‘roll’. Later, the British academy of Arts sponsored a competition for the development of trenching plows. As you might expect, the size, weight and horsepower necessary to pull such an implement through heavy clay soil was significant and costly. The lords of the land continued to rely on the more traditional labor intensive methods of hand digging. By the end of the 18th century, drainage spades were still in use (and often, modern versions can be found for sale in Europe), and clay tiles set in place, then covered. By the 19th century, a variety of specially shaped bricks were being made to specifically form pipe drains. What really forced a systematic approach to field drainage was the end of the agricultural depression brought on by England’s war with Napoleon. It was later determined by the ‘Committee on Agricultural Distress’ around 1836 that the only means to improve yields at the time was to fully develop agricultural drainage, and several companies were created that specifically produced tile to be used for drainage of agricultural land. As we all know, drainage tile continued to evolve and is still in use to this very day.
