    By Gregory Heilers

    Published Sep 9, 2018

Informing this subject is Jason Silverman, the Massachusetts Field Agent of Land For Good, and Joel Salatin, co-owner of Polyface Farm.

    A New Era of Farm Employees: Farm Technicians vs. Farm Hands?

    By Gregory Heilers

    Published Jun 4, 2018

    At the same time, hundreds of farm technician job listings across the US, and the rise of precision agriculture and software, clearly evidence the need for technologically-savvy farm technicians in the 21st century agricultural industry. It’s no surprise that tech-friendly millennials interested in farming are encouraged by these developments, which may make farming less labor intensive than in generations past. Technology may even be the antidote to a number of ills plaguing modern agriculture, which have led to a drastic decrease in the number of farms across the United States. Satellite technology provides a broader view of agricultureTo assess the current state of affairs across the globe, I solicited the expert advice from one of the preeminent farmers in the United States, Joel Salatin, co-owner of Polyface Farm, and John Fargher, co-founder and COO of Australia-based cutting-edge farm management software, AgriWebb.

But there are steps farmers can take to help AMF be more of an advantage than a disadvantage for their crops...

    Why Hemp Isn’t Going to Save the US Farmer (But How It Could)

    By The Crossover

    Published Aug 16, 2019

    In late 2018, a new farm bill was passed that legalized the production of hemp as an agricultural commodity while also removing it from the list of “controlled substances”. The Gold Rush of the modern farming era was on. The farming industry was buzzing with new information on how to grow and market this miracle plant. Hemp farming was going to not only save the modern row crop farmer but also make him wealthy in the process... I think it’s great to have something new for farmers to produce that can add to their operation’s diversity and profitability...

    Promoting climate-smart farming in sub-Saharan Africa

    AUTHOR: Charlie Pye-Smith

    Publisher: CTA, © CTA 2018 EU financing

    Abstract

    Climate-smart agricultural innovations and policies are helping farmers to increase their resilience in the face of more frequent and adverse weather variabilities. As this booklet shows, projects supported by CTA in Eastern and Southern Africa are assisting pastoralists and smallholder farmers adapt to climate change by adopting a number of important measures.

    Access to accurate, geo-referenced weather information and agronomic tips is leading to better decision-making. The planting of drought-tolerant varieties of staple crops is increasing yields and incomes. Index-based insurance is helping farmers to survive droughts and other weather shocks. These projects show that climate-smart strategies can raise agricultural production and improve living standards.

    Big data for smallholder farmers - THE CASE OF MUIIS UGANDA

    Author: Clare Pedrick

    © CTA 2018 EU financing

    Publisher: CTA

    To address these challenges, an innovative initiative is showcasing how ICTs can be used to capture satellite-based information on a wide range of agricultural indicators, packaging it into tailor-made messages for farmers in local languages. Led and implemented by the Technical Centre for Agricultural and Rural Cooperation (CTA), which has extensive experience in shaping ICT solutions for smallholder farmers, with seed funding from the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) through the Geodata for Agriculture and Water (G4AW) Facility of the Netherlands Space Office (NSO), the Market-led, User-owned ICT4Ag-enabled Information Service (MUIIS) is a satellite data-enabled extension and advisory service that uses ICTs to address the current agricultural information gap in Uganda.

    The initiative has been designed to deliver a bundled service offering accurate weather alerts, agronomic tips and index-based drought insurance to help farmers make informed decisions. An unusual feature is the strong business focus, with a number of private sector partners on board and a design that sets out to create commercial opportunities for a range of players in the selected value chains, currently maize, soybeans, beans and sesame. The ultimate goal is to make the MUIIS system self-supporting, driven by the farmer organisations.
