    How Brazilian Big Agriculture is Destroying the Brazilian Amazon

    By Maria Dampman

    Published Apr 4, 2018 

    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. As the deeper parts of the rainforest became accessible, development of these lands became possible, and once begun, continued at an alarming rate. Farmers, loggers and cattle ranchers cleared forest to create grazing land as well as to grow highly profitable crops like soy. In the beginning, no one was aware of the disastrous environmental consequences of destroying the forest often described as “the lungs of the Earth... It’s partly because of these practices that the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization reported that large-scale beef production gives rise to more greenhouse gases than the transportation industry...

    An Introduction to Augmentative Biocontrol

    By Thomas Grandperrin

    Published Apr 7, 2020 

    In the previous article in this series we discussed classical biocontrol, which is the practice of identifying the origins of pests found in local fields, then finding the natural enemies of those pests in their foreign origins and bringing the “enemy of my enemy” (otherwise known as “beneficials”) back from their homelands to local farms to renew old rivalries and help suppress pest populations. As we have seen, this strategy is usually coordinated, or at least regulated, by public organizations at a regional, national or even continental scale. But a lot of the pests damaging our crops are actually native to our regions and already have local natural enemies. The problem though is that the population of those control agents is often insufficient and on the decline, for various reasons, some of which we will discuss in an upcoming article... We will discover that while augmentative biological control was historically known mainly for greenhouse vegetable and floriculture production, these new technics open new opportunities for outdoor crops such as trees, orchards, vineyards, etc...

    Why Hemp Isn’t Going to Save the US Farmer (But How It Could)

    By The Crossover

    Published Aug 16, 2019 

    In late 2018, a new farm bill was passed that legalized the production of hemp as an agricultural commodity while also removing it from the list of “controlled substances”. The Gold Rush of the modern farming era was on. The farming industry was buzzing with new information on how to grow and market this miracle plant. Hemp farming was going to not only save the modern row crop farmer but also make him wealthy in the process... Farmers growing hemp for CBD oil have a more intense management setup and usually require greenhouses and a tremendous amount of “hand” labor...

    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. Excessive use of pesticides and chemical fertilizers will accumulate in the soil, pollute the soil, water, air, and pollute the ecological environment. Agricultural machinery consumes a large amount of diesel and natural gas, and produces carbon dioxide greenhouse gases, causing extreme weather...
