    Delaware Statutory Trust – Implication to Landowners & Farmers

    By Tyler Davis

    Updated Sep 15  

    The Delaware Statutory Trusts (DST) is a newer investment vehicle that allows real estate property owners, including farmers and ag landowners, to purchase tenants in common ownership in passive investment properties. DSTs are separate legal entities and are becoming a more popular choice for Internal Revenue Code Section 1031 exchanges. Revenue Ruling 2004-86 allows a DST to own 100% of a real estate asset and allows a maximum of 499 investors to own an interest in the trust. Delaware Statutory Trusts have many advantages over traditional real estate purchases and traditional 1031 Exchanges... For example, a specific DST might have a minimum investment of $50k and only invest in citrus groves in Florida or industrial development land in Texas...

    Harpin Protein Plant Elicitor For Cannabis

    By Darren Chan

    Published Feb 4  

    Usually, Harpin Protein acted as a plant health promoter activates a plant’s immune system, which triggers growth and defence genes. When harpin protein contacts with plants’ receptors on their seeds, roots, and leaves, it will trigger an early warning system — “Systemic Acquired Resistance,” leading to increased plant yields and health. Target Crops: Economic crops such as cannabis, tobacco, Asparagus, avocado, mango, grape, citrus, blueberry, kiwi, apple, grape, plum, cherry, blueberry, avocado, nectarine etc. Mechanism of Harpin ProteinIt works by stimulating the plant to grow under the general effects of stress and one of those stresses is fungal attack. Harpin itself does not directly affect the pathogens, nor does it enter the plant, rather it binds to receptors on the plant leaf and thereby triggers physiological processes within the plant...

    Published Apr 11, 2019  

    Damages of nematodesNematodes attack plant roots, stems and leaves. They are a major group of crop pathogens and cause worldwide losses estimated at about US$120 billion every year. They inhabit the soil and damage the roots of plants, weakening their ability to absorb water and nutrients. The symptoms of these damages include stunting, yellowing of plant leaves, and loss of plant vigour...

    Tax Agriculture Tax Planning Strategies for Year End 2019 – Part 2

    By Tyler Davis

    Updated May 14  

    This is the second of a two-part series focusing on tax savings, planning opportunities, and other tax considerations for year-end 2019. Part I, published on AgFuse in November of 2019, focused on planning opportunities for farmers with higher than expected earnings in 2019 while Part II focuses on tax planning opportunities for farmers with lower than expected current year performance. Farmers tend to think that tax planning opportunities are only available in high-income years or when they close on a big transaction (selling your property, selling a large amount of stock for a capital gain, etc). However, just as tax planning is essential in those situations, it is also critical to consider tax planning strategies during a down year... This is very common in Florida where I am based due to the declining citrus industry and the regularity of major hurricanes...

    An Introduction to Augmentative Biocontrol

    By Thomas Grandperrin

    Published Apr 7  

    In the previous article in this series we discussed classical biocontrol, which is the practice of identifying the origins of pests found in local fields, then finding the natural enemies of those pests in their foreign origins and bringing the “enemy of my enemy” (otherwise known as “beneficials”) back from their homelands to local farms to renew old rivalries and help suppress pest populations. As we have seen, this strategy is usually coordinated, or at least regulated, by public organizations at a regional, national or even continental scale. But a lot of the pests damaging our crops are actually native to our regions and already have local natural enemies. The problem though is that the population of those control agents is often insufficient and on the decline, for various reasons, some of which we will discuss in an upcoming article... Crop examples include permanent crops such as vineyards, citrus and apple orchards as well as annual crops such as strawberry, cannabis, and corn...

    Applications of Artificial Intelligence in Agriculture

    Author: Ngozi Clara Eli-Chukwu

    Journal: Engineering, Technology & Applied Science Research Vol. 9, No. 4, 2019, 4377-4383

    Publisher: Engineering, Technology & Applied Science Research (ETASR)

    The application of Artificial Intelligence (AI) has been evident in the agricultural sector recently. The sector faces numerous challenges in order to maximize its yield including improper soil treatment, disease and pest infestation, big data requirements, low output, and knowledge gap between farmers and technology. The main concept of AI in agriculture is its flexibility, high performance, accuracy, and cost-effectiveness. This paper presents a review of the applications of AI in soil management, crop management, weed management and disease management. A special focus is laid on the strength and limitations of the application and the way in utilizing expert systems for higher productivity.

    UAV-Based Remote Sensing Technique to Detect Citrus Canker Disease Utilizing Hyperspectral Imaging and Machine Learning

    Authors: Jaafar Abdulridha, Ozgur Batuman and Yiannis Ampatzidis

    Journal: Remote Sens. 2019, 11(11), 1373;

    Publisher: MDPI

    A remote sensing technique was developed to detect citrus canker in laboratory conditions and was verified in the grove by utilizing an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV). In the laboratory, a hyperspectral (400–1000 nm) imaging system was utilized for the detection of citrus canker in several disease development stages (i.e., asymptomatic, early, and late symptoms) on Sugar Belle leaves and immature (green) fruit by using two classification methods: (i) radial basis function (RBF) and (ii) K nearest neighbor (KNN). The same imaging system mounted on an UAV was used to detect citrus canker on tree canopies in the orchard. The overall classification accuracy of the RBF was higher (94%, 96%, and 100%) than the KNN method (94%, 95%, and 96%) for detecting canker in leaves. Among the 31 studied vegetation indices, the water index (WI) and the Modified Chlorophyll Absorption in Reflectance Index (ARI and TCARI 1) more accurately detected canker in laboratory and in orchard conditions, respectively. Immature fruit was not a reliable tissue for early detection of canker. However, the proposed technique successfully distinguished the late stage canker-infected fruit with 92% classification accuracy. The UAV-based technique achieved 100% classification accuracy for identifying healthy and canker-infected trees
