    How international money wants to invest in American Farms.

    By Robert Morgan

    Published 1 years, 4 months ago

    MERCOSUR, or “ The Common Market of the Southern Cone” was established in March of 1990 by the Treaty of Asuncion and was implemented to create a Common Agricultural trade export import market by its now four signatories ( Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay, Uruguay and Bolivia) Venezuela is no longer part of the BLOC and Bolivia has a rather divided influence in MERCOSUR’S role. It has succeeded its predecessor, LAFTA ( Latin American Free Trade Association) in both economic integration as well as unlimited agricultural capital funding and has evolved into a powerful international influence in trade, agriculture, finance, exports, imports, and tariffs with many allies of which desire and inherently depend on its scalability including the United Arab Emirates, The European Union and more recently The United States of America. Brazil and Argentina are the largest Member countries, in territory and population in South America and each have large as well as highly developed consumer markets. Argentina is rich in Natural Resources and has a robust Export Oriented Agricultural Sector...

    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

    Plant Disease Diagnosis for Smart Phone Applications with Extensible Set of Diseases

    Author: Nikos Petrellis

    Journal Title: Applied Sciences

    ISSN: 2076-3417 (Print)

    Publisher: MDPI AG

    A plant disease diagnosis method that can be implemented with the resources of a mobile phone application, that does not have to be connected to a remote server, is presented and evaluated on citrus diseases. It can be used both by amateur gardeners and by professional agriculturists for early detection of diseases. The features used are extracted from photographs of plant parts like leaves or fruits and include the color, the relative area and the number of the lesion spots. These classification features, along with additional information like weather metadata, form disease signatures that can be easily defined by the end user (e.g., an agronomist). These signatures are based on the statistical processing of a small number of representative training photographs. The extracted features of a test photograph are compared against the disease signatures in order to select the most likely disease. An important advantage of the proposed approach is that the diagnosis does not depend on the orientation, the scale or the resolution of the photograph. The experiments have been conducted under several light exposure conditions. The accuracy was experimentally measured between 70% and 99%. An acceptable accuracy higher than 90% can be achieved in most of the cases since the lesion spots can recognized interactively with high precision.

    Identification of Citrus Trees from Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Imagery Using Convolutional Neural Networks

    Authors: Ovidiu, John Cherbini, Robert Johnson, Andy Lyons and Maggi Kelly

    Journal: Drones 2018, 2(4), 39

    Publisher: MDPI

    Remote sensing is important to precision agriculture and the spatial resolution provided by Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) is revolutionizing precision agriculture workflows for measurement crop condition and yields over the growing season, for identifying and monitoring weeds and other applications. Monitoring of individual trees for growth, fruit production and pest and disease occurrence remains a high research priority and the delineation of each tree using automated means as an alternative to manual delineation would be useful for long-term farm management. In this paper, we detected citrus and other crop trees from UAV images using a simple convolutional neural network (CNN) algorithm, followed by a classification refinement using superpixels derived from a Simple Linear Iterative Clustering (SLIC) algorithm. The workflow performed well in a relatively complex agricultural environment (multiple targets, multiple size trees and ages, etc.) achieving high accuracy (overall accuracy = 96.24%, Precision (positive predictive value) = 94.59%, Recall (sensitivity) = 97.94%). To our knowledge, this is the first time a CNN has been used with UAV multi-spectral imagery to focus on citrus trees. More of these individual cases are needed to develop standard automated workflows to help agricultural managers better incorporate large volumes of high resolution UAV imagery into agricultural management operations.

    EU Call for Proposals: Large-scale production of proteins for food and feed applications from alternative, sustainable sources

    Successfully operate a large-scale, first-of-its-kind bio-based value chain producing sustainable, safe food- and/or feed-grade proteins sourced from alternative, sustainable sources, such as residual streams from agriculture, other biomass production and related residual streams (like aquaculture, fisheries, or seaweed), or food industry side streams, through a cascading approach where applicable.

    Proposals should include the whole value chain from the feedstock supply to processing and production steps for the targeted high added-value products. All relevant technologies in the different steps are applicable, provided they have been already proven at a significant scale.

    Dateline for submission: 6 September 2018 17:00:00 (Brussels time)

    Illustration Photo: When the Ashbya gossypii fungus was first described in 1926, the tiny filamentous fungus was regarded with suspicion: as a tropical plant pest. Cotton plants that it infested no longer grew properly and citrus fruits dried out. But Ashbya gossypii can also make a positive contribution to the health of humans and animals. If vegetable oil as well as other nutrients are added to it, it produces vitamin B2, which is of key importance for many animals. It helps the human and animal organism to convert proteins, fats and starches into energy. At BASF the vitamin is produced via fermentation in special stirred tank reactors made of stainless steel. Here the temperature, pH value and ventilation are adjusted to suit the fungus so that it produces as much vitamin B2 as possible. BASF produces more than 1,000 metric tons of the vitamin annually and processes it, for example, into the animal feed additive Lutavit® SG 80.
