    How to Source Farm Interns

    By Gregory Heilers

    Published May 12, 2018

    The Keenans were up to their elbows in infrastructure projects, animal husbandry, and a burgeoning farmstay business, and needed help in a bad way. Balancing a post and beam, lime plaster home construction project against caretaking goats and chickens, while juggling four human kids to boot, left the Keenans with little time for their personal lives. So, the family turned to the outside world for help. As a recent college grad excited about farming, I responded to their advertisement, and soon found my way to the delightful Keenan homestead. For eight hours a day (tea breaks aside - we were in The Wirral, afterall), I helped the Keenans build their future home, steward their livestock, and even watched their children...

    Call for Applications: The Africa Biosciences Challenge Fund (ABCF) Fellowship

    The purpose of the ABCF fellowship program is to develop capacity for agricultural biosciences research in Africa, to support research for development projects that ultimately contribute towards increasing food and nutritional security and/or food safety in Africa, and to facilitate access to the BecA-ILRI Hub facilities by African researchers (and their partners). We seek applicants with innovative ideas for short to medium term research projects (up to 12 months) aligned with national, regional or continental agricultural development priorities that can be undertaken at the BecA-ILRI Hub.

    Areas of research

    Applicants must be scientists affiliated (through employment) with African National Agricultural Research Systems (NARS) e.g. national agricultural research institutes and universities, and conducting research in the areas of food and nutritional security or food safety in Africa. Those carrying out research in the following areas are particularly encouraged to apply*;

    Improved control of priority livestock and fish diseases including: African Swine Fever (ASF); Contagious Bovine Pleuropneumonia (CBPP) and Contagious Caprine Pleuropneumonia (CCPP); Peste des Petits Ruminants (PPR); Rift Valley Fever (RVF); East Coast Fever (ECF); Capripox Virus diseases of ruminants;
    Harnessing genetic diversity for conservation, resistance to disease and improving productivity of crops and livestock and fish (livestock focus: African indigenous breeds, particularly goats, chickens, alternative small livestock species);
    Molecular breeding for important food security crops in Africa;
    Plant transformation to address food insecurity in Africa;
    Plant-microbe interactions;
    Tissue culture and virus indexing for production of virus-free planting materials in Africa;
    Orphan/underutilized species of crops and livestock;
    Crop pests, pathogens and weed management research, including biological control;
    Microbial technology for improving adaptation of staple food crops and forages to biotic and abiotic stresses;
    Rapid diagnostics for crop, livestock and fish diseases;
    Genomics, bioinformatics and metagenomics including microbial discovery;
    Studies on climate-smart forage grasses and mixed livestock-crop systems;
    Microbial technology for improving adaptation of staple food crops and forages to biotic and abiotic stresses;
    Soil health in agricultural systems;
    Improved control of parasitic pathogens of plants (bacteria, fungi, oomycetes) that cause enormous economic losses as well as environmental damage in natural ecosystems (e.g.: Phytophthora infestans that causes potato blight).

    Dateline for submission: 30th June 2018

    How many farmers have problems with Standing Water? Its impossible to remove it all because even water troughs are standing water and your cattle / goats / horses / poultry need to drink.

    We have a solution to the problem of Mosquitoes on your farm, everybody has been talking about the impact of #ZikaVirus on your family, but what about your livestock? Has anybody talked about what impact it might have? The truth is there is zero research, but unlike us humans nobody seems to care!

    Well Natures Enzymes care. We have developed a product called Mosquito Free Water this is a 100% natural product that is safe for all animals and fish alike. This product works in a simple way, it removes the surface tension from the water, Mosquitoes and other arthopods need this water skin to land and breed, without it they drown. We are registered with the EPA and our product is exempt under 25(b) FIFRA.

    This product is not only for Zika, but all diseases like West Nile Virus and Malaria carried by these pests.
