    Oh deer! Deer damage and what farmers can do about it

    By John Moody

    Published May 21, 2018 

    It is that time of year again, at least in my parts. As things go from the tunnel to the field, all our friendly little four legged foes start to to make dinner plans… and breakfast plans... Any sweet potatoes that do make it will then become food for our pigs, who will be rotated through the patch in the fall. Sacrifice patches coupled with hunting permits could be a promising way to attract nuisance deer to an easy to dispatch location on a farm, similar to how hunters plant plots of crops for deer or use feeders to keep their interest in a particular spot strong... Why not let out of season hunting count towards a person’s bag limit? Or set up a system that allows such food to be redirected to those in need while protecting farm crops at the same time?It is clear deer are an increasing problem, and not just for farmers...

    Nutrient Stratification Not a Problem in No-Till

    By Laura Barrera

    Published Aug 13, 2018 

    A common concern growers may have when they move to a no-till system is nutrient stratification. Without tillage to mix fertilizer into the soil, no-tillers may wonder whether the nutrients applied to the soil surface are reaching the crop roots... “A lot of people who say there’s stratification in no-till have never measured the stratification of their tilled systems,” Jasa says, explaining that in his research plots he saw just as much stratification in the disk and chisel systems as he did in no-till... According to a paper written by University of Kentucky soil scientist John Grove, Ward and University of Maryland soil scientist Ray Weil, research conducted in Kentucky from 1980-81 looked at corn’s uptake of surface-applied potassium under moldboard plowed and no-tilled plots that were established in 1970... “The plant provides the food for the mycorrhizae, so the mycorrhizae can bring the nutrients to the plant...

    Can You Use Legume Cover Crops in Your Peanut Rotation?

    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. Jason Sarver, Extension Peanut Specialist for Mississippi State University, shared some trial work published by Dr... In the book, Phatak explains that they use the legume covers — crimson clover, cahaba vetch or subterranean clover — with the rye or along field borders, around ponds, near irrigation lines and in other non-cropped areas as close to fields as possible, to “provide the food needed to support beneficials at higher populations... 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...

    Will a food Crisis arise after pandemic crisis?

    By Ammar Alshami

    Published Mar 6 

    The COVID-19 pandemic introduced unexpected stresses on food systems, creating many immediate challenges. Yet what is remarkable is the speed with which supply chain actors have to date been able to reorganise themselves to ensure the continued availability of food, at least in the developed world... The rapid response of food supply chains has underscored the importance of an open and predictable international trading environment, which allows firms to tap into new sources of supply when existing sources are compromised... COVID 19 & Closing RestaurantsCOVID-19 has led to a drastic shift in consumer demand away from restaurants, food service and other types of “food away from home” towards food consumed at home, requiring important changes in the way food supply chains operate. As the COVID-19 pandemic gathered pace, sales of food away from home (consumed in hotels, restaurants, catering and cafés) collapsed...

    By Fito Chem

    Published Nov 30, 2020 

    Those who are dealing in farming and agriculture, understand that growing vegetables or plants is not as easy a task as it sounds.

Well, providing them with organic nutrients and Food Supplement for Plants in Mexico is the best option... When there is a lack of any of the minerals or nutrients in the soil, farmers can use Organic Products for Plants in Mexico (that we also know as food supplements)... These food supplements, such as organic nutrients and other products not only help in eliminating the issues of low productivity but also fulfilling the demand for the healthy growth of the plants...

    How Does the United States Address Food Supply Insecurity?

    By Joseph Griffith

    Published May 6 

    Let us face it, the United States (US) faces a tough fight in the traditional agriculture industry... food securityThe U... holds the world’s greatest concentration of fertile soil (39%) suited for growing food, determined to be Nationally Significant The US loses up to 2,000 acres/day of farm suitable landThis suitable farmland is continually threatened by development pressure, extreme weather, market disruptions, and epidemics/pandemicsHow do we address this issue? One way can be seen by the emergence of indoor farming companies in the US and globally. These companies located close to markets they serve, producing fresh produce on a sustainable basis that does support and supplements traditional agriculture food production capability... How can the US address food supply insecurity? The answer: AGRONOMCIS that attains all three pillars of sustainability:Economically – AGRONOMICS integrates Solar Micro-Grid Smart Energy Technology with Indoor Farming Solving the Energy Problems Faced by Indoor Farms Environmentally – AGRONOMCS reduces the demand on national macro grids by generating clean/renewable energy on-site while significantly reducing the Carbon FootprintSocially– AGRONOMICS meets escalating demand for a sustainable and healthy food supply while attaining 9 of the 17 United Nations Sustainable Goals AGRONOMICS Creates a New Farming Paradigm to Deliver Farm Sustainability...

    Call for Nominations: The Norman Borlaug Award for exceptional, science-based achievement in international agriculture and food production

    The $10,000 Norman Borlaug Award for Field Research and Application, endowed by the Rockefeller Foundation, will be presented every October in Des Moines, Iowa, by the World Food Prize Foundation.

    This award will recognize exceptional, science-based achievement in international agriculture and food production by an individual under 40 who has clearly demonstrated intellectual courage, stamina, and determination in the fight to eliminate global hunger and poverty.

    The award will honor an individual who is working closely and directly “in the field” or at the production or processing level with farmers, animal herders, fishers or others in rural communities, in any discipline or enterprise across the entire food production, processing, and distribution chain.

    Dateline for submission: June 15, 2019

This maize is orange because it contains high levels of beta-carotene, the same substance that give carrots their color. 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.

    Switchgrass May Be a Good Option for Farmers Who Have Lost Fertile Topsoil

    A study from the University of Missouri College of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources has found that switchgrass, which is a perennial plant and used commonly for biofuel, improves soil quality and can be grown on farms that have lost fertile topsoil. Stephen Anderson, the William A. Albrecht Distinguished Professor of Soil Science at MU, says that switchgrass may be a good option for farmers who have challenges with growing other crops, provided a good market is available for switchgrass.

    At the end of this past year, I had the honor of delivering a #TEDx Talk to an audience assembled at #SAS in Cary, NC on the importance of agriculture and farming and made the connection for those in attendance just how reliant we ALL are on farmers for they not only produce the food and fiber we need, but they help ensure our national security and economic stability.

    Last week, I learned #TED had selected my talk and posted to their site. I invite you to take a look/listen, share with others and to of course reach out to me if you'd like to discuss it further. Thank you, Michelle #FarmerStrong

    Sat in on a Zoom Q&A session yesterday with Secretary Vilsack on this topic. I like the "build back better" attitude.
