    Cover Crop Corner: Part 2 Cover Crop Economics: Long-term gains through holistic improvements

    By Feed the Soil, Feed the World

    Published Oct 13 

    In part two of this two-part series on the economics of cover crops, we explore how a holistic approach to taking care of resources comes with long-term gains. By GO SEEDThere are no “quick fixes” when it comes to the health of soils, the benefits take more than overnight to show up. While it takes time and deliberate care to learn how to enhance resources holistically within your own system, the general principles are relatively simple and can be significant cost savings... Dealing with compaction Soil compaction is a common issue for row crop and forage producers resulting from continual hoof and equipment traffic... “As plants photosynthesize, they send a lot of that carbon (30-70%) they capture down through the roots...

    chitosan oligosaccharide

    5 reasons to choose chitosan oligosaccharide in organic agriculture

    By Darren Chan

    Published Jan 22, 2019 

    Numerous studies have shown that chitosan oligosaccharides can induce broad-spectrum resistance, enhance the plant’s own defense ability, inhibit the growth of a variety of plant pathogenic microorganisms, and it is non-toxic and can be microbial degradation, and will not pollute the environment... Inducing the production of plant resistance proteinsChitosan oligosaccharides and their derivatives can induce plants to produce resistance proteins against pathogens. Many studies have shown that chitooligosaccharides induce plants to produce chitinase, chitosanase and l-3-glucanase... A large number of studies have confirmed that chitosan oligosaccharides and their derivatives can induce plants to lignify around their infected sites, forming a physical barrier, preventing or delaying the growth of pathogenic bacteria and spreading to surrounding normal tissues, enhancing plant disease resistance force... Therefore, the increase of phenols in plants can not only prevent disease, but also promote the lignification of pathogens, thus enhancing the disease resistance of plants...

    How to Cultivate Cotton Organically

    By Vijayalaxmi Kinhal

    Updated Oct 24, 2020 

    Though most of the organic cotton in the world comes from Asia, Texas in the USA is also a major producer. Although specific growing methods may vary based on region and farm size, there are general principles that can be applied throughout the world when it comes to growing organic cottonEconomicsThere are many reasons to grow cotton organically... However, by the third year, the yield was similar to conventional farms, in an Indian experiment, and the ROI of organic cotton was 25% higher, as production costs are less... Cotton doesn’t tolerate waterlogging, so soils should be well-drained... To optimize growing conditions, the following organic cultivation methods are recommended, and Figure 1 shows the best timing for each operation...

    How Yield Champions Use Cover Crops for Growing Higher Bushels

    By Laura Barrera

    Published Jun 1, 2018 

    Below two state corn yield champions share how cover crops helped them capture contest wins, while also improving their soil and boosting their profits... While Russell Hedrick didn’t intend for his yield-winning corn to follow corn — most of his farm is in a corn-soybean rotation, occasionally with some small grains — it proved just how beneficial cover crops can be in a mono-cropping situation... “If you apply synthetic nitrogen, there’s a whole complex process that has to take place to convert those into plant-available amino acid forms,” Hedrick explains... Typically a farmer would have to apply 320 units of nitrogen to achieve those kinds of yields, but Hedrick only applied 140 units, adding that the stalk nitrate samples they pulled after harvest indicated they could’ve gone with as little as 100 units... “Those cover crops coming into the equation have really helped us with our profitability...

    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... When wild plant hosts dry due to early drought, tarnished plant bugs (TPB) and stinkbugs move from them to cotton earlier than usual... Though the pests are not new to cotton the timing of their attack and their sheer numbers is... Among the pests, those that feed on squares, bloom, and bolls are the ones that cause the most harm to the yield... As the plant grows, crop evapotranspiration (ETc), the water lost by leaf transpiration and soil evaporation, increases to a peak in the mid-season, as shown in Figure 1...

Holes in the exhaust systems of tractors and other farm equipment can leak carbon monoxide... Vent pipes on high-pressure hot water tanks fueled by propane can be deadly... Because carbon monoxide is odorless, colorless and non-irritating, it’s impossible to detect without the correct instruments...

    How to Make Fermented Chicken Feed
    Fermenting chicken feed is an easy and inexpensive way to improve the nutritional value of your chickens food, leading to overall better health -- and quality of eggs! It takes very little supplies and time to do. Come learn how!
    Prep Time: 5 mins Fermentation Time: 3 d
    Equipment
    Large glass jar, mixing bowl, bucket, or other container (BPA-free preferred)
    Ingredients
    1-2 servings chicken feed of choice
    Instructions
    Add enough chicken feed to the container for one or two days servings for your flock.
    1: Pour dechlorinated or filtered water over the top of the feed. Add enough so that the feed is fully submerged and has a couple inches of room to expand. (If needed, simply leave a glass of city tap water out at room temperature overnight to allow the chlorine to dissipate.)
    2: Cover the top of the container with a loose-fitting lid, plate, or other makeshift lid. It doesn't need to be air tight.
    3: Set the container in a location with moderate temperatures for three to four days to ferment (such as out on the counter, in the garage, etc).
    4: Check and stir it each day. Add additional water if the feed has absorbed it all.
    5: After 3 to 4 days (our chickens prefer day 3) give them the fermented feed. If it hasn't absorbed all of the water, you can either drain it off and discard, or reserve the liquid to jump start a new batch of fermented feed.
    6: Repeat as desired, and develop a schedule. Since it takes a few days to ferment, some folks start staggered batches every day (put a date on the container!) in order to have a finished batch of fermented feed available at all times.

    PRIMA Call for Proposals: Farming Systems 2019 - Conserving water and soil in Mediterranean dry-farming, smallholder agriculture

    Mediterranean crops agroecology, systems and farmers can benefit from the widespread application of conservation agriculture in the region. While conservation agriculture has been widely adopted in semiarid regions in North and South America and Australia, large opportunities remain for its application in the Mediterranean Area. Action is required to increase crop water availability and to control soil erosion. A socioeconomic analysis is required to identify the barriers preventing widespread application of these techniques. The vulnerability of the smallholder farmers in the region, the availability of specific machinery, the competition for residues, the control of weeds and the lack of alternative crops to temperate cereals adapted to conservation agriculture stand as candidate variables explaining the situation. Research and innovation proposals should foster local stakeholders’ cooperation in the identification of technical, policy and socioeconomic barriers preventing the adoption of conservation agriculture. Proposals should also address technical barriers through the development of site-specific solutions in demonstration sites located in different agro systems.

    Local conservation agriculture adopters and/or local long-term experiments should be identified characterized and their systems, in terms of resources conservation and profit, should be evaluated. Proposals should also consider capacity building activities addressed to farmers in the region to foster adoption of conservation agriculture. Proposals should also develop societal, technological and policy innovations facilitating the adoption of Conservation Agriculture in the region.

    Submission deadline for Pre-proposals: 28th February, 2019 (17:00h CET)

    A Machine Vision System for Quality Inspection of Pine Nuts

    Authors: Ikramullah Khosa and Eros Pasero

    Journal Title: International Journal of Advanced Computer Science and Applications

    Publisher: The Science and Information (SAI) Organization

    Computers and artificial intelligence have penetrated in the food industry since last decade, for intellectual automatic processing and packaging in general, and in assisting for quality inspection of the food itself in particular. The food quality assessment task becomes more challenging when it is about harmless internal examination of the ingredient, and even more when its size is also minute. In this article, a method for automatic detection, extraction and classification of raw food item is presented using x-ray image data of pine nuts. Image processing techniques are employed in developing an efficient method for automatic detection and then extraction of individual ingredient, from the source x-ray image which comprises bunch of nuts in a single frame. For data representation, statistical texture analysis is carried out and attributes are calculated from each of the sample image on the global level as features. In addition co-occurrence matrices are computed from images with four different offsets, and hence more features are extracted by using them. To find fewer meaningful characteristics, all the calculated features are organized in several combinations and then tested. Seventy percent of image data is used for training and 15% each for cross-validation and test purposes. Binary classification is performed using two state-of-the-art non-linear classifiers: Artificial Neural Network (ANN) and Support Vector Machines (SVM). Performance is evaluated in terms of classification accuracy, specificity and sensitivity. ANN classifier showed 87.6% accuracy with correct recognition rate of healthy nuts and unhealthy nuts as 94% and 62% respectively. SVM classifier produced the similar accuracy achieving 86.3% specificity and 89.2% sensitivity rate. The results obtained are unique itself in terms of ingredient and promising relatively. It is also found that feature set size can be reduced up to 57% by compromising 3.5% accuracy, in combination with any of the tested classifiers.

    Nanotechnology is an interesting area of multifaceted research in agricultural perspective. This technology incorporates the manufacturing of material at nano level. Nanoparticles (NPs) have now become an integral part of research because of their unique features like their size, shape and surface reactivity. In agriculture sector engineered nanoparticles (ENPs) i.e., metal NPs, metal oxide NPs and Carbon Nano Tubes (CNTs) etc has been used in the form of nanofertilizers and nanopesticide/ herbicides. Therefore, the appropriate use of nanoparticles could provide a proficient sustainable platform to achieve the food requirement of global massive population. As of the application of nanotechnology to agriculture and food industry is outturn in enhanced crop yield with better food quality as well as safety. Inspite of the significances of nano-material, negative outcomes should also be taken in consideration before applying it on a large scale.

    Graphic: Nanoparticles (NPs) (metal NPs, Metal oxide NPs and carbon nanotubes) at optimum dose increases chlorophyll content, release of required chemicals, nutrient uptake, NPs solubility, cell elongation, germination rate, growth parameters, microbial activities and crop productivity, while at high dose cause phytotoxicity by reducing crop yield and productivity.

    Agriculture is expected to contribute in substituting of fossil fuels in the future. This constitutes a paradox as agriculture depends heavily on fossil energy for providing fuel, fodder, nutrients, and machinery. The aim of this paper is to investigate whether organic agriculture is capable of providing both food and surplus energy to the society as evaluated from a model study. We evaluated bioenergy technologies in a Danish dairy-farming context in four different scenarios: (1) vegetable oil based on oilseed rape, (2) biogas based on cattle manure and grass-clover lays, (3) bioethanol from rye grain and whey, and (4) a combination of (1) and (2). When assessing the energetic net-contribution to society from bioenergy systems, two types of problems arise: how to aggregate non-equivalent types of energy services and how to account for non-equivalent types of inputs and coproducts from the farming? To avoid the first type, the net output of liquid fuels, electricity, useful heat, and food were calculated separately. Furthermore, to avoid the second type, all scenarios were designed to provide self-sufficiency with fodder and fertilizer and to utilize coproducts within the system. This approach resulted in a transparent assessment of the net-contribution to society, which is easy to interpret. We conclude that if 20% of land is used for energy crops, farm-gate energy self-sufficiency can be achieved at the cost of 17% reduction in amount of food produced. These results demonstrate the strong limitations for (organic) agriculture in providing both food and surplus energy.

    Implementation of QFD in Food Supply Chain Management: A Case of Processed Cassava in Indonesia

    Author: Ida Bagus Suryaningrat

    Publisher: International Journal on Advanced Science, Engineering and Information Technology

    Processed cassava products are common agroindustrial products in Indonesia food market. Low of product improvement is still common problem faced by cassava food producers. Evaluation of this product is strongly needed to improve quality of processed cassava products. Recently, evaluation of consumer expectation is required to be conducted to improve product quality and to answer consumer expectation as well. The objectives of this study was to evaluate the consumer’s needs as a basic to reach a sustain supply chain in processed cassava product. In this study, Quality Function Deployment (QFD) method was implemented to evaluate consumer expectation and to develop a sustainable supply chain of processed cassava products. Information were gathered from many resources such as suppliers, outlet owners, producers, workers, processing operators and marketing staff from four famous processed cassava production units. Based on House of Quality (HOQ) the results of this study showed that 4 attributes from consumers were taste, color, smell and texture which were answered by nine technical responses. These results would be a basic term of sustainable of supply chain in processed cassava products. In term of supply chain, production execution and quality control as processing activities have strong correlation to all items of technical response, followed by capacity planning and production and inventory control, and also raw material procurement activities.

    Development of a Hopper-Type Planting Device for a Walk-Behind Hand-Tractor-Powered Vegetable Transplanter

    Authors: Dihingia, Pramod Chandra, Prasanna Kumar, G.V. Sarma, Pallab Kumar

    Journal title : Journal of Biosystems Engineering

    Publisher : Korean Society for Agricultural Machinery

    In order to ensure that vegetable seedlings (with a soil block around their roots) are planted in an upright orientation after metering in a vegetable transplanter, they need to be dropped freely from a certain height. The walk-behind hand-tractor-powered machines do not have sufficient space to drop the seedlings from that height. In the present work, a hopper-type planting device was developed for the walk-behind hand-tractor-powered vegetable transplanter to ensure that the soil block seedlings are planted in an upright orientation. Methods: Various dimensionless terms were developed based on the dimensional analysis approach, and their effect on the planting of soil block seedlings in an upright orientation (planting efficiency) was studied. The optimum design dimensions of the hopper-type planting device were identified by the Taguchi method of optimization. Results: The ratio of the height of free fall to the sliding distance of the seedling on the surface of the hopper had the highest influence on planting efficiency. The planting efficiency was highest for plants with a height . The plant handling Froude number, in interaction with the design of the hopper-type planting device, also significantly affected the planting efficiency. Of the hopper design factors, the length of the slide of the seedlings on the surface of the hopper was most important, and induced sufficient velocity and rotation to cause the seedling to fall in an upright orientation. An evaluation of the performance of the planting device under actual field conditions revealed that the planting efficiency of the developed planting device was more than 97.5%. Conclusions: As the seedlings were fed to the metering device manually, an increase in planting rate increased missed plantings. The planting device can be adopted for any vegetable transplanter in which the seedlings are allowed to drop freely from the metering device.
