    How Brazilian Big Agriculture is Destroying the Brazilian Amazon

    By Maria Dampman

    Published 1 years, 6 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... With the end of deforestation and the planting of millions of trees in the decimated areas, it looked like everyone’s work was done and now the protestors could all move on to saving a different cause... Whenever the government found illegally deforested lands, landowners were fined and required to plant trees and shrubbery to return the land back to forest... Leaves from the trees used that fell in streams or standing water made these areas inhospitable for mosquito breeding. Now that the trees are gone and there is growth of only low lying vegetation, the mosquitoes have nearly unlimited areas to breed...

    5 reasons to choose chitosan oligosaccharide in organic agriculture

    By Darren Chan

    Published 8 months ago

    In the application of agricultural production, chitosan oligosaccharides not only make crops grow better and robust, but also has obvious effects in stress resistance and pest resistance. Numerous studies have shown that chitosan oligosaccharides can induce broad-spectrum resistance, enhance the plant’s own defense ability, inhibit the growth of a variety of plant pathogenic microorganisms, and it is non-toxic and can be microbial degradation, and will not pollute the environment. This makes it an important role in agricultural production as a new type of green production. 1... They can root and promote stems, shorten stems, and grow vigorously, which is conducive to nutrients to maximize the supply of fruits...

    I have posted a couple of Facebook post with some of the rice crop results in Indonesia that used GroAloe.  Check them out.  Our own Dr. Moning has been overseeing the proper use of GroAloe on rice and other crops.  Looks like it is turning out to be another great rice crop season.  I hate to sound like a broken record, but it works on all cereal crops, fruit trees, herbs, tomatoes.  We are still in the process of expanding GroAloe's potential use.  Trust me the stuff works!!  This not just another new fangled product.  GroAloe is going to change farming as we know it.

    Stronger policy support needed to reap the benefits of growing trees near crops

    Agroforestry is a term used for land-use systems and technologies where woody perennials - trees, shrubs, palms, bamboos and such like - are deliberately used in the same plots as agricultural crops or livestock in a way that builds and channels ecological synergies. The approach is gaining in interest due to its ability to sequester carbon and mitigate climate change along with broadening the social, economic and environmental sustainability of rural development.

    FAO promotes the potential multiple roles of agroforestry, Semedo said, citing several examples including projects undertaken in lands facing outmigration in Nepal; to boost soil health and water conservation in the drought-prone regions of Guatemala and Honduras; and to introduce fruit trees in timber plantations in the Kyrgyz Republic.

    UAV-Based Remote Sensing Technique to Detect Citrus Canker Disease Utilizing Hyperspectral Imaging and Machine Learning

    Authors: Jaafar Abdulridha, Ozgur Batuman and Yiannis Ampatzidis

    Journal: Remote Sens. 2019, 11(11), 1373;

    Publisher: MDPI

    A remote sensing technique was developed to detect citrus canker in laboratory conditions and was verified in the grove by utilizing an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV). In the laboratory, a hyperspectral (400–1000 nm) imaging system was utilized for the detection of citrus canker in several disease development stages (i.e., asymptomatic, early, and late symptoms) on Sugar Belle leaves and immature (green) fruit by using two classification methods: (i) radial basis function (RBF) and (ii) K nearest neighbor (KNN). The same imaging system mounted on an UAV was used to detect citrus canker on tree canopies in the orchard. The overall classification accuracy of the RBF was higher (94%, 96%, and 100%) than the KNN method (94%, 95%, and 96%) for detecting canker in leaves. Among the 31 studied vegetation indices, the water index (WI) and the Modified Chlorophyll Absorption in Reflectance Index (ARI and TCARI 1) more accurately detected canker in laboratory and in orchard conditions, respectively. Immature fruit was not a reliable tissue for early detection of canker. However, the proposed technique successfully distinguished the late stage canker-infected fruit with 92% classification accuracy. The UAV-based technique achieved 100% classification accuracy for identifying healthy and canker-infected trees
