  • Amending vs. Fertilizing

    By Accidental Agronomist

    Published 11 months ago

    This past winter I spoke at the Pennsylvania Association of Sustainable Agriculture(PASA) and NOFA NJ 2018 Winter conferences. What an honor to be able to talk to so many enthusiastic like-minded people. In this article, which was initially published in Week 5 of the 52 Weeks of Agronomy Series, I talked about one of the things I presented on at those conferences. You can find it along with other articles at News | The Accidental Agronomist I spoke about the concept of amending vs... Some common natural or organic fertilizers are blood meal, feather meal, peanut meal, corn gluten, crab meal, fish, kelp, manures, bone char/meal, sul-po-mag, sodium nitrate, Epsom salts, kelp, etc...

    How Brazilian Big Agriculture is Destroying the Brazilian Amazon

    By Maria Dampman

    Published 1 years, 2 months ago

    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... Chemical fertilizer and pesticide runoffs are responsible for polluting freshwater sources wiping out sensitive species of fish only found in the Amazon...

    Nuisance Lawsuits are Taking a Bite Out of Big Pork

    By Maria Dampman

    Published 9 months ago

    In 1611, William Aldred took his neighbor to court. Thomas Benton was being sued for “erecting a hogstye so near the house of the plaintiff that the air thereof was corrupted. ” In common language, the pigs stank, making it impossible for Aldred to enjoy his home which, in his words, had become “unbearable to live in. ” The courts sided with Aldred, saying the odor was “depriving him of his dignity” and therefore, a violation of his rights... However, the lagoons were brought to the public eye after one of these ruptured in 1995 spilling 25 million gallons of watery putrid waste into the New River, killing thousands of fish and flooding other nearby farms...

    Uruguay now is now investing in USA farms; Read Why.

    By Robert Morgan

    Published 11 months ago

    The MERCOSUR Member;Uruguay, with a much smaller landmass and population then either Brazil or Argentina has as the largest sector of its Agricultural production, principally producing Rice, Wheat, Corn, Barley, Livestock, Cattle and Fish, therefore contributing to the BLOC’s extensive Export Import Trade. Agrilend views Uruguay is set to experience a period of structurally lower growth in the coming years, as investment into expanding agricultural production and re-export capacity is tempered and foreign capital begins to flow into Argentina as the new Argentine government liberalizes its investment environment. Nonetheless, Uruguay will continue to outpace Latin America's average real GDP expansion as the country's middle class supports private consumption growth. Inflation will remain elevated over the coming years as the Banco Central Del Uruguay will not implement significant policy measures to stymie price increases. The bank will instead focus on attempts to spur growth and encourage consumption with low borrowing costs as tempered investment weighs on economic growth...

    EU's Call for Proposals: Food Systems Africa

    Proposals shall assess and deliver better nutrition performance of African farming systems, strengthening the agro-biodiversity (and integrated aquaculture systems) and food diversity. They shall address innovative approaches in local food systems while covering technological, food safety, social and gender issues[2], and address sustainable postharvest technologies, including bio-based packaging, to reduce food waste along the post-harvest/consumer chain and plastic littering. Empowerment of small farmers (including aquafarmers) and processors benefitting rural areas leading to diversity of diets and improving food identity is essential. Food supply chains (conventional and organic) for both local urban markets and high value global markets shall be targeted. Proposals need to ensure the commitment and participation of a variety of partners established in the EU and in Africa, and shall establish relevant links with other projects involved in the EU-Africa Research and Innovation Partnership on Food and Nutrition Security & Sustainable Agriculture (FNSSA). Proposals should include a task to cluster with other projects involved in the EU-Africa R&I Partnership on FNSSA and with the cooperation platform established under SFS-33-2018.

    Smart aquaponic system based Internet of Things (IoT)

    Authors: Haryanto, M Ulum, A F Ibadillah, R Alfita, K Aji and R Rizkyandi

    Published under licence by IOP Publishing Ltd
    Journal of Physics: Conference Series, Volume 1211, conference 1

    Getting appropriate water source for fish and plant cultivation seems difficult. Moreover, the agricultural production is decreasing due to narrower lands so that land- and water-saving technology combined with a variety of vegetable is important to produce maximum yield. Aquaponics is a sustainable agriculture system in a symbiotic environment by combining aquaculture and hydroponics. This water system should flow on the planting medium periodically to ensure the plants get the nutrients, while the water can be filtered properly by the medium. This research designed a smart aquaponics system that could control and monitor the degree of acidity, water level, water temperature, and fish feed that were integrated with internet-based mobile application. In this system, there was a sensor installed to retrieve data, which was then transmitted to Ubuntu IoT Cloud server that could be accessed in real time through the internet network. Thus, the quality and water circulation were well-preserved. Results showed that the success rate of measurement for ultrasonic sensor was 99.94%, pH sensor of 92.35%, and temperature sensor of 97.91%. The temperature and pH water pool that were suitable for aquaponics ranged between 20-30°C and 7-75 and the monitoring system proceeded as expected.
