  • Concepts of Invoice Financing

    By REAL BRIDGING

    Published Nov 12 

    There comes a time in the life of every small business when cash gets a little tight and decision makers look for outside sources of funding. In these instances, many small business owners will hop on the chance to secure a loan. But not everyone looks forward to the process and time it takes to get approved for a traditional business loan — and that’s assuming you can get approved in the first place. For small business owners who seek timely financing to invest in their business and cover their operating expenses, invoice financing may be a much more sensible funding option. What is the difference between invoice financing and invoice factoring?The terms “invoice financing” and “invoice factoring” are often used synonymously, though they’re not the same thing...

    How Brazilian Big Agriculture is Destroying the Brazilian Amazon

    By Maria Dampman

    Published Apr 4, 2018 

    Once word got out that saving this vital forest was necessary for long-term human survival, people from around the world took up the cause to save the rainforest... The Indigenous people have nearly no voice in the government, and extremely limited resources to help protect their dying culture... With the barriers down, diseases like leptospirosis, malaria, and dengue fever are being transmitted by primates to humans at an alarming rate... However, with the removal of the rainforests, it’s evident that humans will be subject to bacteria and viruses that we have never seen... This is partly why Echohealth Alliance is rapidly studying viruses endemic in the wildlife to hopefully create vaccines before the diseases spread to human hosts...

    By AgCareers.com Team

    Published Jun 14, 2018 

    We hear a lot of chatter about workplace diversity. Employers often allocate resources to recruiting diverse talent and are quick to tell candidates how welcoming of a work environment they'll find. Job seekers want to know they are going to work for an organization that welcomes diversity in its most traditional sense, as well as a broader scope that accounts for diversity of thought and experiences... As with most anything involving human capital, there is room for improvement as the agriculture industry strives to foster diverse workplaces... com - Find Agriculture Jobs and Agriculture Career opportunities, Including jobs in Food, Natural Resources and Biotechnology...

    Million Dollar Dirt

    By Amanda Allworth

    Published Jul 10, 2018 

    Dirt. It’s arguably a farmer’s most valuable natural resource. But what makes some soils more productive than others? That’s a complicated question to answer, but we do know that the healthiest soils share some common characteristics... Soil organic matter content, microbial populations, bulk density, infiltration rate, soil water and nutrient holding capacity are examples of dynamic soil characteristics that change over a shorter time period with or without human intervention... The Natural Resources Conservation Service recommends a 24:1 carbon to nitrogen ratio in crop residue to maintain microbe, soil and plant health...

    Everyday agriculture using Artificial Intelligence: Benefits for the soybean industry

    By SHARATH CHANDRAN U.S

    Updated Aug 9, 2020 

    Artificial Intelligence or AI is perhaps one of the most popular topics in the 21st century. To simply state, AI is the process wherein the computers perform complex tasks instead of humans to save time, energy, and labor... Gone are those days when all the field activities were done by humans using draught animals... It will prevent us from needlessly irrigating and wasting precious natural resources... Nothing beats a human mind for its analytical thinking and logical decision making...

    Nuisance Lawsuits are Taking a Bite Out of Big Pork

    By Maria Dampman

    Published Aug 17, 2018 

    In 1611, William Aldred took his neighbor to court. Thomas Benton was being sued for “erecting a hogstye so near the house of the plaintiff that the air thereof was corrupted. ” In common language, the pigs stank, making it impossible for Aldred to enjoy his home which, in his words, had become “unbearable to live in... Most of the residents neighboring the large farms and acres of waste lagoons are low-income minority families that do not have the financial resources or the opportunity to move away...

    Why I left Cannabis for Hemp

    The BeginningI started in the cannabis industry just about 27 years ago. I really love cannabis! I started out as a guerrilla farmer, moved to indoor, then outdoor, then into greenhouses and then controlled greenhouses. I always liked growing in organic soil... I love working with the plant, and I believe it helps us to be better people, and teaches us things like how to nurture and be better farmers and human beings...

  • Safe Use of Wastewater in Agriculture: Good Practice Examples

    Population growth, rapid urbanisation, more water intense consumption patterns and climate change are intensifying the pressure on freshwater resources. The increasing scarcity of water, combined with other factors such as energy and fertilizers, is driving millions of farmers and other entrepreneurs to make use of wastewater. Wastewater reuse is an excellent example that naturally explains the importance of integrated management of water, soil and waste, which we define as the Nexus approach. The process begins in the waste sector, but the selection of the correct management model can make it relevant and important to the water and soil as well. Over 20 million hectares of land are currently known to be irrigated with wastewater. This is interesting, but the alarming fact is that a greater percentage of this practice is not based on any scientific criterion that ensures the “safe use” of wastewater. In order to address the technical, institutional, and policy challenges of safe water reuse, developing countries and countries in transition need clear institutional arrangements and more skilled human resources, with a sound understanding of the opportunities and potential risks of wastewater use.

    Weather Based Strawberry Yield Forecasts at Field Scale Using Statistical and Machine Learning Models

    Authors: Mahesh L. Maskey, Tapan B Pathak and Surendra K. Dara

    Journal Title: Atmosphere

    ISSN: 2073-4433 (Online)

    Publisher: MDPI AG

    Strawberry is a high value and labor-intensive specialty crop in California. The three major fruit production areas on the Central Coast complement each other in producing fruits almost throughout the year. Forecasting strawberry yield with some lead time can help growers plan for required and often limited human resources and aid in making strategic business decisions. The objectives of this paper were to investigate the correlation among various weather parameters related with strawberry yield at the field level and to evaluate yield forecasts using the predictive principal component regression (PPCR) and two machine-learning techniques: (a) a single layer neural network (NN) and (b) generic random forest (RF). The meteorological parameters were a combination of the sensor data measured in the strawberry field, meteorological data obtained from the nearest weather station, and calculated agroclimatic indices such as chill hours. The correlation analysis showed that all of the parameters were significantly correlated with strawberry yield and provided the potential to develop weekly yield forecast models. In general, the machine learning technique showed better skills in predicting strawberry yields when compared to the principal component regression. More specifically, the NN provided the most skills in forecasting strawberry yield. While observations of one growing season are capable of forecasting crop yield with reasonable skills, more efforts are needed to validate this approach in various fields in the region.
