  • Canada Agriculture Day: Water Pollution from Agriculture

    By Cierra Bray

    Published Mar 26, 2018

    February 13, 2018February 13th, 2018 is the 2nd annual Canada’s Agriculture Day – a time to celebrate and draw a closer connection between Canadians, our food and the people who produce it. Our theme this year is Water Pollution from Agriculture, which is a global challenge that has increased in both developed and developing countries, undermining economic growth as well as the physical and environmental health of billions of people. Human settlements, industries and agriculture are the major sources of water pollution. Globally, 80 percent of municipal wastewater is discharged into water bodies untreated, and industry is responsible for dumping millions of tonnes of heavy metals, solvents, toxic sludge and other wastes into water bodies each year. Agriculture, which accounts for 70 percent of water abstractions worldwide, plays a major role in water pollution...

    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... “In Canada, because prices are good for canola right now, a lot of farmers are going back to mono-cropping,” she says...

    Should You Rotate Your Cover Crops? 4 Issues to Consider

    By Laura Barrera

    Published Jun 15, 2018

    You probably know that having a crop rotation is a good thing. Growing different crops back to back provides several benefits, such as preventing pests and disease, improving soil health and reducing fertilizer inputs, all of which can boost your crop yields and your bottom line. By adding cover crops to the mix, you’re diversifying your rotation even more. But have you thought about rotating your cover crops? Should you be using the same cover crop species back to back, year after year?Dave Robison, who runs the blog PlantCoverCrops...

    How Brazilian Big Agriculture is Destroying the Brazilian Amazon

    By Maria Dampman

    Published Apr 4, 2018

    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. ” Once scientists delved into the causes of global climate change, a wide number of other side effects of the clearing of the rainforest quickly became evident...

    How to Source Farm Interns

    By Gregory Heilers

    Published May 12, 2018

    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... ATTRA/NCATATTRA’s directory, in use since 1989, is organized visually with a map of the US and Canada, easy to navigate, and conveys all of the important details an intern should know about your farm prior to applying for an internship...

    This Week in AgricultureA Mixed Bag of Information from the Week that Was: October 12, 2018· A USDA supply and demand update, weather, trade talks and outside market volatility were the most talked about developments across the board this week. · Trade was relatively quiet the first part of the week as a failure to break out above short-term resistance levels and concerns over a potentially bearish USDA report pressured corn and beans. Developments in the outside market structure though created great concern throughout all markets resulting in a risk off attitude and increased selling pressure mid-week. · Ideas that a shift in Fed policy towards a more hawkish tone resulting in increased interest rates, though known for some time now, was pointed to as the reasoning behind the selloff...

    Test results of 100% natural biostimulant results in organic farming breakthrough (AgroNews)

    By Christopher Keen

    Published Oct 29

    When a retired farmer and organic farming consultant is motivated to put his boots back on and get back into the fields, you know something special is happening. That’s exactly how Daniel Rotberg felt when he studied the first GroAloe trial conducted on grapes with a major leafhopper infestation. The trial shows that, “The overall health of the Vineyard has completely transformed from weak and in some places, diseased plants, to a robust and healthy condition with many more grape shoots now forming. What is even more encouraging is that all of the new growth has not been bitten by any new or pre-existing leafhoppers... ” The results that GroAloe is showing on crops ranging from grapes grown in Canada, rice in Indonesia to Cannabis and Hemp in California and Oregon are remarkable...
