    By Robert Morgan

    Published 5 months ago

Investment Bankers can monitor its supply in circulation by the money aggregates, M1,M2,M3, or M4. However for a farmer who relies on goods being exchanged Fiat has several disadvantages, especially for Agricultural Farmers who produce today hoping to get paid tomorrow for the commodities they produce. Fiat Money does not have for today's farmer utility or use value...

    By Direct Driller Magazine

    Published 3 months ago

    From Direct Driller Magazine: Issue 2Written by Frédéric ThomasLike many farmers, Michel Mercier first got into direct drilling based on the economic savings it offered. He first worked with an SE Horsch then onto an AT Köckerling, then onto a SD Kuhn, only to find that the drill is only an ingredient, only part of a solution, purely the way to do something... Now with 12 years of knowledge, he has been able to reduce his average Nitrogen rates (only 100 kg of product in two applications: 50 kg in the spring and 50 kg in the autumn), he observed straws decomposes more rapidly and the biological activity seems much more efficient... The program of weed control of the rapeseed remains traditional with an autumn propyzamide application to finish the work of cleaning grassweeds and leave a clean start for the following wheat crop... Another advantage is that establishment is earlier, which helps spread autumn workload, typical seed rates of 30 to 35 kg / ha for 100 to 120 p / m² also aid logistics...
