    By Vijayalaxmi Kinhal

    Updated Oct 24, 2020

    How do Iron and Amino Acids Correlate in Plants?

    By Ryan Reynolds

    Published Oct 16, 2020 

    Opulent Blends has possibly the best iron uptake for iron fertilizer, which is Green Optimizer and here's how. A major limiting factor on crop yields is imbalanced nutrient availability, especially iron. There are many essential elements that plants use, and it is important for each of those elements to be balanced. An element that is short in supply will determine the effectiveness of all the elements as a whole and in result lead to unbalanced nutrients within the plant negatively affecting the overall health and growth of the plant. In fact, a shortage of just one element within the plant can hinder an entire crop...

    1-Methylcyclopropene(1-MCP) Apples Fresh-Keeping Agent

    By Darren Chan

    Updated Jun 17 

    1-MCP is a product widely used in apples around the world to improve eating quality and storability. Ripening of the fruit is initiated by ethylene, and in some cases this is also true. To a certain extent, the ripening process's speed is regulated by its concentration in the fruit. Fruits generally soften, and apples soften more rapidly when the ethylene content is high, but ethylene is also volatile in the fruit needed to stimulate the formation of flavor-producing substances... Precautions of 1-MCP1) The harvest time should be at an appropriate maturity of crops...

    Mixed cultivation can achieve higher yields, new study found

    By Isla Miller

    Published Jul 30 

    However, arable land growing only one crop has its disadvantages: these areas can easily be targeted by fungi and pests and pose a threat to crops... The latter climate is much drier and warmer than Zurich, which allows researchers to study how these crops grow under possible future climatic conditions. In their experiment, the researchers selected two or four different crops from eight selected crops, including wheat, oats, quinoa, lentils, lentils, flax, and pseudoflax (a rapeseed rapeseed) as well as coriander... These crops were sown in alternating parallel rows at 12 cm intervals. The researchers compared seed quality between mixed-cultivated crops and monoculture crops...

    New Findings about the Relationship between Fungi and Plant Roots

    By Isla Miller

    Published Aug 30 

    Almost all crop plants are in contact with a special type of fungus called arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi in the soil, which greatly expands their root surface area. This mutually beneficial interaction promotes the ability of plants to absorb nutrients essential to growth. The more nutrients that plants naturally obtain, the less artificial fertilizers they need. Understanding this natural process, as the first step to potentially enhance it, is an ongoing research challenge... Understanding and using the dynamics of fungus colonization in plant roots has the potential to increase future crop yields in an environmentally sustainable way...

    Microalgal Biostimulants and Biofertilisers in Crop Productions

    Authors: Domenico Ronga, Elisa Biazzi, Katia Parati, Domenico Carminati, Elio Carminati and Aldo Tava

    Journal Title: Agronomy

    ISSN: 2073-4395 (Online)

    Publisher: MDPI AG

    Microalgae are attracting the interest of agrochemical industries and farmers, due to their biostimulant and biofertiliser properties. Microalgal biostimulants (MBS) and biofertilisers (MBF) might be used in crop production to increase agricultural sustainability. Biostimulants are products derived from organic material that, applied in small quantities, are able to stimulate the growth and development of several crops under both optimal and stressful conditions. Biofertilisers are products containing living microorganisms or natural substances that are able to improve chemical and biological soil properties, stimulating plant growth, and restoring soil fertility. This review is aimed at reporting developments in the processing of MBS and MBF, summarising the biologically-active compounds, and examining the researches supporting the use of MBS and MBF for managing productivity and abiotic stresses in crop productions. Microalgae are used in agriculture in different applications, such as amendment, foliar application, and seed priming. MBS and MBF might be applied as an alternative technique, or used in conjunction with synthetic fertilisers, crop protection products and plant growth regulators, generating multiple benefits, such as enhanced rooting, higher crop yields and quality and tolerance to drought and salt. Worldwide, MBS and MBF remain largely unexploited, such that this study highlights some of the current researches and future development priorities.

    Optimising crop protection with a smart pest monitoring solution

    The EU-funded Trapview solution allows growers to remotely monitor pest insects caught in pheromone traps. The growers are also alerted in real-time when insecticide spraying is needed, based on the high number of pests detected.

    Trapview’s traps, which can self-clean ensuring high catching efficiency and consequently high data quality, send images to the cloud at least daily. These images are processed then analysed by machine learning to identify each of the insects pictured.

    To ensure accuracy, the team had trained the AI neural networks by introducing tens of thousands of images of positively identified target pests.

    Bayer will acquire Monsanto for USD 66 billion to Create a Global Leader in Agriculture

    This transaction brings together two different, but highly complementary businesses. The combined business will benefit from Monsanto’s leadership in Seeds & Traits and Climate Corporation platform along with Bayer’s broad Crop Protection product line across a comprehensive range of indications and crops in all key geographies. As a result, growers will benefit from a broad set of solutions to meet their current and future needs, including enhanced solutions in seeds and traits, digital agriculture, and crop protection.

    The combination also brings together both companies’ leading innovation capabilities and R&D technology platforms, with an annual pro-forma R&D budget of approximately EUR 2.5 billion. Over the mid to long-term, the combined business will be able to accelerate innovation and provide customers with enhanced solutions and an optimized product suite based on analytical agronomic insight supported by Digital Farming applications. These are expected to result in significant and lasting benefits for farmers: from improved sourcing and increased convenience to higher yield, better environmental protection and sustainability.

    “The agriculture industry is at the heart of one of the greatest challenges of our time: how to feed an additional 3 billion people in the world by 2050 in an environmentally sustainable way. It has been both companies’ belief that this challenge requires a new approach that more systematically integrates expertise across Seeds, Traits and Crop Protection including Biologicals with a deep commitment to innovation and sustainable agriculture practices,” said Liam Condon, member of the Board of Management of Bayer AG and head of the Crop Science Division.

    The Agriculture Promotion Policy of Nigeria (2016 – 2020)

    Nigeria is facing two key gaps in agriculture today: an inability to meet domestic food requirements, and an inability to export at quality levels required for market success. The former problem is a productivity challenge driven by an input system and farming model that is largely inefficient. As a result, an aging population of farmers do not have enough seeds, fertilizers, irrigation, crop protection and related support to be successful. The latter challenge is driven by an equally inefficient system for setting and enforcing food quality standards, as well as poor knowledge of target markets. Insufficient food testing facilities, a weak inspectorate system in FMARD, and poor coordination among relevant federal agencies serve to compound early stage problems such as poor knowledge of permissible contaminant levels.

    Putting Nigeria’s agriculture sector on a path to growth will require actions to solve these two gaps: produce enough fresh, high quality foods for the Nigerian market; and serve the export market successfully and earn foreign exchange. The new federal Agricultural Promotion Policy (APP) is a strategy that focuses on solving the core issues at the heart of limited food production and delivery of quality standards. As productivity improves domestically and standards are raised for all Nigerian food production, export markets will also benefit impacting positively on Nigeria’s balance of payments. Given limited resources and the importance of delivering sustainable results, the Federal Ministry of Agriculture & Rural Development (FMARD) in consultation with partners has identified an initial pool of crops and related activities that will be Nigeria’s path to tackling the aforementioned gaps.
