    Jason Mauck's intercropped soybeans growing between 19-inch quad rows of wheat. By focusing on the wheat for capturing nutrients, suppressing weeds and feeding soil life vs. high yields, Mauck has seen over 100-bushel soybeans with significant input savings. Photo by Jason Mauck.

    How to Create a Low-Input, High-Revenue System with Wide-Row Intercropping

    By Laura Barrera

    Published Dec 9, 2019 

    He’s now saving around $200 an acre on input costs, while increasing revenue through high-yielding soybeans — Mauck currently holds the state record for soybean yield per acre... Mauck says the key to economically succeeding with this system is to focus more on driving yield in the higher-priced crop, which in this case is soybeans. High-yielding wheat is not the focus... ”He understands that not growing high-yielding wheat may be a challenge for farmers, but if you flip the typical 80-bushel wheat and 40-bushel soybeans grown in a double-cropping system around, economically it makes more sense. “If soybeans are $9 a bushel and wheat is $5, and you try for low wheat and low cost of goods and higher soybeans, just flip flopping the economics around is $160-$180,” he explains...

    A New Era of Farm Employees: Farm Technicians vs. Farm Hands?

    By Gregory Heilers

    Published Jun 4, 2018 

    At the same time, hundreds of farm technician job listings across the US, and the rise of precision agriculture and software, clearly evidence the need for technologically-savvy farm technicians in the 21st century agricultural industry. It’s no surprise that tech-friendly millennials interested in farming are encouraged by these developments, which may make farming less labor intensive than in generations past. Technology may even be the antidote to a number of ills plaguing modern agriculture, which have led to a drastic decrease in the number of farms across the United States. Satellite technology provides a broader view of agricultureTo assess the current state of affairs across the globe, I solicited the expert advice from one of the preeminent farmers in the United States, Joel Salatin, co-owner of Polyface Farm, and John Fargher, co-founder and COO of Australia-based cutting-edge farm management software, AgriWebb... ” He also cited Wes Jackson’s Altars of Unhewn Stone: Science and the Earth, which highlights traditional farming methods as solutions to contemporary agricultural problems...

    Blockchain Technology: A Lifeline to Small-Scale Farmers

    By Gregory Heilers

    Published Apr 14, 2018 

    Technology has been an integral part of agriculture since at least 5,000 years ago, documented through the use of ploughs in ancient Sumeria... For example, Edwin highlighted the FoodCoin Ecosystem and its thriving 1000EcoFarms platform, which allow small farms to market directly to consumers... While customers of large corporations like Walmart most likely won’t experience any trickle-down savings due to higher profit margins, they aren’t going to lose out entirely, either... To develop an economy of scale, improve efficiencies, and earn a higher portion of profits, farmers in developing countries form cooperatives... From greater market share and higher profit margins, to greater transparency, enhanced food safety compliance, and less waste, blockchain technology offers game-changing benefits to farmers and the agricultural industry at large...

    Grain Drying Technology Using Paddy Husk

    By SUNCUE Grain Dryer

    Published Mar 28, 2019 

    When the hot air temperature is too high, it easily causes fissure grains... When the paddy is heated, the moisture close to the embryo will be dried rapidly, however, the level of the moisture inside the paddy remains high... Hence, dryers with a tempering design are the most suitable ones for drying high quality grains. What is a mesh type re-circulating grain dryer ?The design concepts of re-circulating type grain dryers are low temperature, fast drying, and the ability to keep the grain temperature as body temperature for better quality and higher seed germination rates. Continuous type grain dryers that supply higher hot air temperatures and a speedier cooling system find it difficult to control the temperature and moisture content of grains evenly...

    How Precision Technology can Tackle Cotton’s Irrigation and Pests’ Challenges in the 2020s

    By Vijayalaxmi Kinhal

    Updated Aug 7, 2020 

    The high-value returns from cotton as well as the higher costs of production should be ample incentives for adopting precision farming... Higher than normal temperatures have been accompanied by moderate to severe drought in several southern states, so irrigation assumes added importance to help cotton through future summers... 89 times higher than dryland farms of the same category... Cotton growers, who have been using broad recommendations can use precision farming to finetune their irrigation to avoid higher water inputs and costs... These can be high-resolution images made by RBG, NIR, multispectral, and hyperspectral camerasSatellite maps for high elevation imagery, which are available free of cost from several government agencies and give multispectral and hyperspectral images There are several online software analysis providers, which identify patterns and quantify farms into zones of stress, based on intensities starting from none to medium and high...

    Mixed cultivation can achieve higher yields, new study found

    By Isla Miller

    Published Jul 30 

    Nowadays, single cultivation occupies the dominant position of arable land, and large areas of land are occupied by single, promising fine varieties with high yield... A team led by Professor Christian at the Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich now reveals that mixed cultures actually produce higher yields than single cultures in cultivable agriculture... Mixed culture draws on the ecological principle that ecosystems can more effectively function in places where biodiversity is high... Where the researchers sown the four crops simultaneously, yield increases were as high as 13% and 44% in Spain and Switzerland, respectively... Over time, people have changed most crops to produce fruits and higher yields under monoculture conditions...

    cover cropping with triticale ,hairy vetch and cow peas late fall?

    By Brady Shortell

    Published Oct 18, 2020 

    Looking at planting triticale with hairy vetch and cow peas for a cover crop next year for a cash crop or corn to be planted late May 2021 using a roller crimper to terminate the cover crop before plant. It’s October 18th, I won’t be able to plant until the 22nd. Night time temps have fluctuated from mid 30s to high 20s no consistency yet. Some nights stay closer to 40. Highs are in the 70s and 80s. Am I too late for any of my covers? Any suggestions on planting rates? Will triticale terminate properly if I follow the method used for Rye, waiting until the entire field is dropping pollen?

  • Sensing Technologies for Precision Phenotyping in Vegetable Crops: Current Status and Future Challenges

    Authors: Pasquale Tripodi, Daniele Massa, Accursio Venezia and Teodoro Cardi

    Journal: Agronomy 2018, 8(4), 57; https://doi.org/10.3390/agronomy8040057

    Publisher: MDPI

    Increasing the ability to investigate plant functions and structure through non-invasive methods with high accuracy has become a major target in plant breeding and precision agriculture. Emerging approaches in plant phenotyping play a key role in unraveling quantitative traits responsible for growth, production, quality, and resistance to various stresses. Beyond fully automatic phenotyping systems, several promising technologies can help accurately characterize a wide range of plant traits at affordable costs and with high-throughput. In this review, we revisit the principles of proximal and remote sensing, describing the application of non-invasive devices for precision phenotyping applied to the protected horticulture. Potentiality and constraints of big data management and integration with “omics” disciplines will also be discussed.

    PRIMA Call for Proposals: Farming Systems 2019 - Sustainability and competitiveness of Mediterranean greenhouse and intensive Horticulture

    In the Mediterranean area, the intensive cultivation of horticulture products, such as tomato, pepper and lettuce, can take advantage of favourable environmental conditions for organisational and technological development to result in higher productive efficiency. Technology innovations should include greenhouse climate control, sensors and robotics tools and agronomical practices to improve the efficient use of resources, ultimately fulfilling a circular recovery approach, and also providing environmentally friendly and ecological control of pest and pathogens for production of safe food. Furthermore, special attention must be paid to controlling nutrient leakages to the receiving surface, sub-surface and groundwaters with the purpose to fight growing eutrophication trends.

    New soilless systems (including freshwater aquaponics) should be also incorporated and tested in order to facilitate the adoption of efficient fertigation strategies, particularly under conditions of water scarcity and low water quality while ensuring nutrient balance strict and smart control systems to fight eutrophication. Successful technological implementation rests on the effective use by single users or consortia in tight connection with processing industries. This should include integrating sensors data and algorithms into decision support systems. Proposals should then properly analyse the grower’s needs and offer solutions that will be successfully exploited. A socio-economic study is also advocated to demonstrate economic feasibility while preserving and protecting receiving environmental systems (water and soil) of the proposed measures and proper education and training of growers through specific capacity building activities, and to help promoting a new generation of entrepreneurs, less conservative and more aware of the state-of-the art practices. The greenhouse technology providers, mainly SMEs, constitute an important source of employment for the agri-business. The proposals should aim to better connect private companies and public research, facilitating the exchange of know-how from research centres and academy to the private sector and vice versa.

    The proposed innovative technologies should be tested in small-scale research and demonstration studies, taking in consideration sustainability of technologies related to intensive horticulture, as well as environmental protection (not to increase eutrophication) social aspects, including labour conditions with particular reference to gender issue. The demonstration sites should consider a wide range of environmental conditions and should also ensure that ensuring no adverse impact to degradation of surface and groundwater water quality of receiving waters and ensuring quality of soil is maintained.

    Use of renewable energy for desalination in urban agriculture in the GCC countries: Possibilities and challenges

    Authors: Salem Al-Jabri, Mushtaque Ahmed

    Journal Title: Journal of Agricultural and Marine Sciences

    ISSN: 2410-1060 (Print); 2410-1079 (Online)

    Publisher: Sultan Qaboos University

    The current dependence of the GCC countries on fossil oil and gas is unwise in terms of economic and environmental sustainability. GCC countries must consider the use of renewable energy to cope with price fluctuations of oil and gas in the global market and to lower the emission of green house gases. The demand for food and water in the GCC countriesis increasing due to high growth rate of population. Given the weather conditions and available amounts of natural water resources, the demand on food and water cannot be met unless alternative sources of water are considered. Several studies pointed out that the desalination technology is probably the only option for producing ample amounts of water for food production in arid environments. This work explores the potential of use of desalination technology for producing irrigation water in GCC countries, with special emphasis on experience of the Sultanate of Oman compared with that of Spain. Desalination can always provide a tailored-quality irrigation water at any climatic conditions. The main challenge for considering desalination for agriculture is purely economic; where GCC countries could consider it only if intensive horticulture of high-value cash crops, such as vegetables and flowers in controlled environments, is considered. Disposal of brine water is also a challenge and must be done at an additional cost. Depending on the quality of desalinated water, several studies showed that solar-operated desalination technologies are in a mature stage and economically viable. Therefore, solar energy can make the desalination technology an attractive option to sustain agriculture and food supply in GCC countries.

    Pepper-picking robot demonstrates its skills in greenhouse labour automation

    With the rising shortage of skilled workforce in agriculture, there’s a growing need for robotisation to perform labour-intensive and repetitive tasks in greenhouses. Enter SWEEPER, the EU-funded project developing a sweet pepper-harvesting robot that can help farmers reduce their costs.

    The team of experts involved in the project recently gave a live demonstration of the technology in a commercial greenhouse in the Netherlands.
