    By Vijayalaxmi Kinhal

    Updated Oct 24, 2020 

    Though most of the organic cotton in the world comes from Asia, Texas in the USA is also a major producer. Although specific growing methods may vary based on region and farm size, there are general principles that can be applied throughout the world when it comes to growing organic cottonEconomicsThere are many reasons to grow cotton organically. The market share of organic cotton has grown from 1% in 2008 to 21% in 2018. Half of this is grown in India, with China (17%), Kyrgyzstan (7%), and Turkey (7%) being the next major producers... In addition to commercial pesticides, many natural self-made sprays of garlic extract, wood ash, flour, soft soap, milk, sulfur, lantana leaf extract, giant milkweed (Calotropis procera) are used depending on the pests...

    1-Methylcyclopropene(1-MCP) Apples Fresh-Keeping Agent

    By Darren Chan

    Updated Jun 17 

    1-MCP is a product widely used in apples around the world to improve eating quality and storability. Ripening of the fruit is initiated by ethylene, and in some cases this is also true. To a certain extent, the ripening process's speed is regulated by its concentration in the fruit. Fruits generally soften, and apples soften more rapidly when the ethylene content is high, but ethylene is also volatile in the fruit needed to stimulate the formation of flavor-producing substances... Vegetables: tomatoes, lettuce, celery, kale, potatoes, carrots, daylily, onions, toon, beans, broad beans, peas, broccoli, asparagus, coriander, cucumber, onions, leeks, garlic sprouts, (green, red) peppers, North Korea Thistle, cowpea, sweet corn, enoki mushroom, etc...

    Published Jul 12 

    Nutritional Benefits of Kale and the Effects of Indoor and Traditional Farming MethodsWhen you are talking about growing food it isn’t as simple as planting a seed and watering it in hopes that it grows to abundance. Plants are more complicated than we think and require more attention than that. One of my favorite plants is kale... · Extra Virgin Olive Oil· 2 Cloves of garlic· Pinch of crushed red pepper· Croutons· ½ cup of grated Parmigano· Zest and juice of 1 lemon· 1 tablespoon of Dijon mustard· 2-3 anchovy fillets· 2 dashes of Worcestershire sauce· Kosher salt· 1 bunch of kale, tough stems removed, cut into ribbons· Shaved Parmigano1.

    Rick Husk Furnace

    By SUNCUE Grain Dryer

    Published Oct 29, 2019 

    SUNCUE Rice Husk Furnace: From Fossil Fuel Agriculture to Ecological Cycle AgricultureIn order to pursue high production, fossil fuel is used in large quantities in modern agricultural activities. The large-scale use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides requires oil as raw materials; agricultural machinery also uses diesel and natural gas for production activities. This is fossil fuel agriculture... In the non-rice drying season, various agricultural products such as garlic, peanuts, and longan are dried, and the equipment utilization rate is greatly improved... The farm only needs to dry the next batch of paddy with 1/3 of the paddy husk, and the remaining 2/3 of the paddy husk can dry the economic crops in the surrounding areas, such as chili, onion, garlic, beans, dried longan and spices...

    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. Some bottlenecks remain, and some new disruptions may emerge as COVID-19 continues to spread. 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... Moreover, it becomes more difficult to source products such as Soybean, Ginger, Garlic, Onion, and wheat and other products at competitive prices...

    Criteria for Determining Working Area and Operating Cost for Long-Term Lease of Agricultural Machinery

    Authors: Shin, Seung Yeoub; Kang, Chang Ho; Yu, Seok Cheol; Kim, Yu Yong; Noh, Jae Seung

    Journal title : Journal of Biosystems Engineering

    Publisher : Korean Society for Agricultural Machinery. This is an Open Access article distributed under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution Non-Commercial License (CC BY-NC 3.0).

    This research suggests a method of establishing criteria for working area and operating cost for a long-term lease of agricultural machinery. Methods: Eight crops were selected-three food crops and five open-field vegetables-and agricultural machines used for sowing, transplanting, and cultivation in dry-field farming were analyzed. Results: The break-even acreage for agricultural machinery under a long-term lease was found to differ by agricultural machine, ranging from 1.0 to 5.8 ha. In terms of arable land area, the break-even acreages for harvesting machinery and transplanters were 15.6 to 26.1 ha and 6.1 to 8.6 ha, respectively. The working area lessees should secure was divided into two cases: (1) 2.0 to 11.6 ha when leasing individual agricultural machines (sowing and transplanting) for a long-term period, and (2) more than 10 ha when farmers who cultivate beans, potatoes, garlic, onions, and so on lease sowing and transplanting machines as a set. When agricultural machinery was leased for a long term, the operating cost and working time were reduced by 27.6 to 74.4% and 2.5 to 21.6%, respectively, indicating considerable effect. Conclusions: A long-term lease project needs to be promoted to overcome the limitation of short-term leases of agricultural machinery. The local government should lead this project and facilitate the mechanization of dry-field farming. The department in charge of agricultural machinery lease projects needs to set the working area to cover the rate and maintenance cost for farmers who lease agricultural machinery for the long term.
