    By Laura Barrera

    Published Aug 31, 2018

    It’s common knowledge among peanut farmers that the farther out you space your peanut crops in your rotation, the better off the peanuts will be. Research backs this up.

In addition to no fungicide use, as mentioned above, Phatak has also found on his no-till research plots with covers and long rotations, that he didn’t have to use insecticides on his peanuts for 6 years, and it benefitted the soil overall...

    Starting from Scratch - How Beginning Farmers can Break Ground

    By Gregory Heilers

    Published Sep 9, 2018

    Despite the fact that there is near-guaranteed job security, thanks to booming population growth, many beginning farmers face seemingly insurmountable obstacles to bringing a product to market. In this article, we’re going to cover how young farmers can start from the ground up, even if they don’t come from a family of farmers. Informing this subject is Jason Silverman, the Massachusetts Field Agent of Land For Good, and Joel Salatin, co-owner of Polyface Farm. Jason’s experience as a first generation farmer, and as an agent connecting farmers with resources, balances well with Joel’s, who took over the family farm, and has since mentored scores of intern cohorts. Starting Out with No Agricultural BackgroundOne of the dangers of starting out without either extensive experience or a strong support network is the potential for failure...

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

    By Gregory Heilers

    Published Jun 4, 2018

    Traditional agricultural skills that made civilization possible are still alive and in use today. 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... Despite the fact that Joel disagreed with technology being the sole answer to on-farm challenges, he did point out its uses in marketing, complying with food supply chain regulations, and navigating “financial transactions and legalities, intricacies of liability insurance, health insurance, etc...

    What Farmers Need to Know About Mycorrhizae

    By Laura Barrera

    Published Nov 2, 2018

    If someone asked you, “How do plants take up the water and nutrients they need?” you’d probably tell them through the roots. But did you know that for many crops, those roots aren’t working alone?That’s because most plant species associate with mycorrhizal fungi... But Berns has done some testing with these products on his farm and has observed some differences between plots treated with inoculants vs. the control plots, particularly with aboveground growth and root mass... “But in the other plots, it would’ve been a waste of money for the farmers to use it...

    How To Value a Farm Agricultural Business

    By Robert Morgan

    Published Jun 14, 2018

    Business valuations are frequently performed when one company acquires another company, when a company is targeted for an acquisition, when a company’s capital structure is reorganized, when a company splits up, or when a company enters bankruptcy in liquidation or reorganization. The transactions may include entire or partial acquisitions, divestitures, liquidation, or recapitalization. Mergers will generally require both companies to be valued, while an acquisition may require only a single valuation... The reasoning implicit in The Agrilend model is the typical business valuation of an ongoing concern will provide a methodology for valuing its monetary efficiency by the market, asset, and income approach, however when dealing with established food manufacturing brands there is a different element to be considered to determine which constitutes its inherent customer base and brand positioning and therefore the multiple the target company can be purchased at or resold to a secondary private equity group, lender, or investor with an emphasis proportionally irrespective of discounted cash flows, capitalization rate, risk free rate, debt capital structure, capital asset pricing method, equity risk premium or company specific risk premium. In food manufacturing established brands with distribution in retail, it is still necessary to gauge the capital structure to determine the weighted average cost of capital to make a decision for a minority or majority purchase, however Agrilend places an emphasis on this intangible value with greater weight...

Beta-carotene is a provitamin, and is converted to vitamin A within the human body. CIMMYT works with ZARI as part of HarvestPlus, a CGIAR challenge program that uses biofortification to improve the nutritional value of staple foods. The HarvestPlus maize team uses conventional breeding to create maize hybrids and open-pollinated varieties rich in provitamin A.
