    How to get rid of powdery mildew on plants ?

    By Darren Chan

    Published 1 years, 3 weeks ago

    2 Improve conditions of Ventilation and transmittanceThe planting density is appropriate, and the old leaves at the bottom are destroyed in time, which is conducive to the light penetration of the fields. Clean the pastoral areas, remove diseased leaves, diseased locusts, and broken twigs, and remove it from the field and concentrate or burn it. It should strengthen ventilation, reduce humidity, and scientifically water, creating an environment that is not conducive to the development of powdery mildew... However, it should be noted that if the relative humidity in the greenhouse is high, increasing the amount of water spray may cause other diseases...

    How To Value a Farm Agricultural Business

    By Robert Morgan

    Published 1 years, 3 months ago

    Mergers will generally require both companies to be valued, while an acquisition may require only a single valuation. The terms of the transaction generally include cash, notes, stock, or a combination of these forms of payment. Typically most business valuations are performed to determine the proposed value of a business, Agrilend focuses on the enterprise value of the business which includes all equity stakeholders or shareholders, interest bearing debt, net working assets, fixed assets as well as intangibles also described as goodwill. The reasoning implicit in The Agrilend model is the typical business valuation of an ongoing concern will provide a methodology for valuing its monetary efficiency by the market, asset, and income approach, however when dealing with established food manufacturing brands there is a different element to be considered to determine which constitutes its inherent customer base and brand positioning and therefore the multiple the target company can be purchased at or resold to a secondary private equity group, lender, or investor with an emphasis proportionally irrespective of discounted cash flows, capitalization rate, risk free rate, debt capital structure, capital asset pricing method, equity risk premium or company specific risk premium. In food manufacturing established brands with distribution in retail, it is still necessary to gauge the capital structure to determine the weighted average cost of capital to make a decision for a minority or majority purchase, however Agrilend places an emphasis on this intangible value with greater weight...

    Corn is one of the world’s most important crops. Each year, breeders create several new corn products, known as experimental hybrids. Corn breeders work to create corn hybrids that can maintain high yield across a wide range of environments. Historically, identifying the best hybrids has been by trial and error, with breeders testing their experimental hybrids in a diverse set of locations and measuring their performance to select the highest yielding hybrids. This process can take many years. Corn breeders would benefit from accurate models that can predict performance across a range of environmental scenarios.

    One way of modeling corn yield is that any particular hybrid (experimental cross of corn varieties) has a maximum yield potential, which then decreases depending on the environment in which it is grown. Every environment will have certain characteristics, or limiting factors, that are suboptimal for any hybrid, causing the actual yield to be less than the yield potential.

    Some potential environmental stresses that can have a negative effect on yield are poor weather (heat, drought, cold, etc.), soil lacking nutrients, insect damage or pathogens. The degree of each stress and how resistant a particular hybrid is to the stresses encountered will determine how much the yield is impacted. In addition, certain stresses, when faced at the same time, can have a stronger impact than the combined individual stresses.

    A strong understanding of how a hybrid reacts when facing certain stresses (and combined stresses) could be a powerful tool for developing hybrids for regions that are less hospitable for corn, allowing farmers the potential to productively grow corn where currently it is challenging. Furthermore, individual farmers benefit from having access to this type of information because they can better manage risk across their acres.

    FAO points the way for low-carbon animal products to support nutrition and rural livelihoods

    However, "a low-carbon livestock sector is possible to achieve," Graziano da Silva said, pointing to FAO estimates that methane emissions can quickly be cut by 20 to 30 percent across all production systems by the adoption of known husbandry practices such as regenerative grazing, forage selection and better recycling of nutrients and energy from livestock waste. Better management of pasturelands and the health and carbon-storing capacity of their soils is also essential for increased livestock production not to require further deforestation, he added.

    Clean Technologies in Agriculture - How to Prioritise Measures?

    Authors: Deborah Scharfy, Norman Boccali and Matthias Stucki

    Journal Title: Sustainability

    ISSN: 2071-1050 (Online)

    Publisher: MDPI AG

    As agriculture continues to be under pressure due to its negative environmental impacts, resource-efficiency and the use of clean technologies gain importance. Meanwhile, there is an abundance of technological solutions that help “clean” agriculture’s hotspots, either by reducing inputs, by producing renewable energy or by protecting ecosystems. Decisions about clean technologies remain difficult due to the variety of options, difficulties in cost-benefit calculations, and potential trade-offs in sustainability. We therefore addressed the issue of decision-making regarding clean technologies in agriculture. A multi-criteria decision analysis (MCDA) was used to rank the most sustainable technologies. Evaluation of 17 selected clean technologies was based on literature information and expert opinion. Wireless sensor irrigation networks, frequency converters for vacuum pumps and stable air conditioning, PV electricity and drip irrigation were the five technologies with the highest sustainability scores, outperforming the 12 other clean technologies. When all sustainability dimensions and criteria were equally weighted, PV electricity was superseded by variable speed drive technology for irrigation in the top five. This paper shows that MCDAs are a useful method for choosing between sustainable clean technology options. By applying different weighting, the MCDA can reflect the priorities of the decision maker and provide customised results.

    Illustration Photo: Humidity and temperature sensors and underground soil tensiometers are strategically located throughout Reiter Berry Farms, in Watsonville, CA, on Thursday, August 27, 2015. Data from this and other sensors will be transmitted to a comunication repeater on the hill in the distance, where it will go to a cloud-based irrigation management system. The farms are working with the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) to improve on the 30% water savings they already achieve with precision micro subsurface irrigation. The use of a Wireless Irrigation Monitoring Network (WIN) to collects data from wireless solar powered soil tensiometers, and weather field stations positioned throughout farms in three counties enable them to track soil, temperature, and humidity conditions with a cloud-based irrigation management system, to better manage watering and soil conservation efforts in more than 700 acres. They actively share their data, methods, and experiences with other producers. Better management by producers using a currently dwindling supply and quality of ground water (wells) in this county will help recharge the aquifer and prevent the migration of nearby Pacific Ocean salt water into the ground wa...

    "Growers in the West have continued to invest in drip irrigation, each year producing more acres of vegetables using drip tape technology. Drip irrigation has helped growers increase yields, improve quality, and conserve water. Chemigation through drip has become an important tool for using fertilizer more efficiently by better synchronizing the delivery of nutrients with crop needs. Despite these benefits, drip often requires more management than furrow and sprinklers, and mistakes can be costly."
