    Healthy Diet: How Can Your Diet Affect Animals?

    Why did you go vegan? My friend Leo was bewildered about my drastic lifestyle change. We grew up together, so he knew that I’m the kind of person who’s accustomed to meat and dairy every meal. Why the sudden change? Leo reiterated. Leo isn’t the first person who’s curious about my decision to abstain from consuming animal products...

    September Cover Crop Corner: Economic Series Part One: Reducing Inputs

    By Feed the Soil, Feed the World

    Published Sep 20 

    In part one of this two-part series on the economics of cover crops, we explore how they can help reduce input costs. By GO SEED“Yeah, the principle of cover crops makes sense but how much are they going to cost me?” From farmers using them in rotations to field experts alike, this is one of the most common questions they get asked when discussing the integration of cover crops. And in a business where inputs can quickly get out of hand and cut into thin profit margins, it is understandably so. According to Jerry Hall, Director of Research for GO SEED, this question needs to be flipped on its head with farmers asking, “How much can cover crops save me?” “With strategic use, cover crops can help decrease inputs like fuel and labor, while providing long-term production benefits from resource improvement,” explains Hall... This was achieved by establishing mixtures with upwards of 10 different species with grasses, forbs, herbs and legumes and putting cows on a 30-day rotation...

    U.S. companies often look to secure a year-round supply. This helps reduces plant idle time and improve manufacturing efficiency. Different companies, depending on their inclination and investible capacity, are opting for a variety of sourcing options. Some have sought to enter into joint ventures with Indian ingredient processors and suppliers. Others have opted to explore acquisition options.

    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.

    Agroforestry and Biodiversity

    Authors: Ranjith P. Udawatta, Lalith Rankoth and Shibu Jose

    Journal Title: Sustainability

    ISSN: 2071-1050 (Online)

    Publisher: MDPI AG

    Declining biodiversity (BD) is aecting food security, agricultural sustainability, and environmental quality. Agroforestry (AF) is recognized as a possible partial solution for BD conservation and improvement. This manuscript uses published peer-reviewed manuscripts, reviews, meta-analysis, and federal and state agency documents to evaluate relationships between
    AF and BD and how AF can be used to conserve BD. The review revealed that floral, faunal, and soil microbial diversity were significantly greater in AF as compared to monocropping, adjacent crop lands, and within crop alleys and some forests. Among the soil organisms, arbuscular mycorrhizae fungi (AMF), bacteria, and enzyme activities were significantly greater in AF than crop and livestock practices. Agroforestry also creates spatially concentrated high-density BD near trees due to favorable soil-plant-water-microclimate conditions. The greater BD was attributed to heterogeneous vegetation, organic carbon, microclimate, soil conditions, and spatial distribution of trees. Dierences in BD between AF and other management types diminished with time. Evenly distributed leaves, litter,
    roots, dead/live biological material, and microclimate improve soil and microclimate in adjacent
    crop and pasture areas as the system matures.

    "Infarm, a 40-plus person startup based in Berlin is developing an “indoor vertical farming” system capable of growing anything from herbs, lettuce and other vegetables, and even fruit. The concept might not be entirely new — Japan has been an early pioneer in vertical farming, where the lack of space for farming and very high demand from a large population has encouraged innovation — but what potentially sets Infarm apart, including from other startups, is the modular approach and go-to-market strategy it is taking." https://techcrunch.com/2017/06/26/infarm/
