    From rich milk to delectable sauce: Opportunities in the soybean industry

    By SHARATH CHANDRAN U.S

    Updated Aug 9, 2020 

    Who hasn’t heard of the term “soy” or “tofu”? Especially in the vegan community, soy-based foods have become more of a cultural facet than a regular food item. The soybean or soya bean is widely cultivated in several parts of the world. But, Brazil and the US lead the industry with 126 and 124 million tonnes of production respectively (FAOSTAT, 2018) which is roughly 70% of the world's production. In the US, soybeans are the second largest produced crop after corn... It has a nutty texture with a mild earthy flavour resembling mushrooms and can be used to cook a variety of dishes...

    Utilizing corn wastes: Helping to build a circular economy in the corn industry

    By SHARATH CHANDRAN U.S

    Updated Aug 9, 2020 

    The United States is the largest producer of corn in the world. With production topping 345 million metric tons (2019 statistics from statista. com), corn has remained the backbone of American agriculture for decades... The fact is, high-quality gourmet mushrooms like the oyster, milky, Volvariella, etc... A thoroughly dried and chopped corn stover will provide the same kind of substrate nutrition as sawdust, if not more, for the fungi to colonize and produce mushrooms...

    Here is a great article from Purdue Ag. Here's the summary about 'big data': Unfortunate truth #1: Data can't assist you in making a decision towards an end that you have not yet defined. You have to know where you want to go or what you want to do before you can hope to make decisions that get you there.
    Unfortunate truth #2: You can no longer do whatever you want to do, what feels right or what your gut says to do with your data; you may now have to do things you might not necessarily want to do.
    Unfortunate truth #3: You can't let the fear of a bad outcome stop you from making the right decision. You have to separate the outcome from the decision.
    Unfortunate truth #4: You must identify questions for which there are no answers, or, for which the answer simply doesn't matter. If you're going to invest time, effort and money into data-driven decision making, you need to prioritize which decisions are deserving of your attention. https://agribusiness.purdue.edu/consumer_corner/dont-eat-random-mushrooms

    There is a farm near Pittsburgh, PA called Quiet Creek Herb Farm http://www.quietcreekherbfarm.org/

    They grow several varieties of mushrooms and are a great resource for information. Field & Forest Products out of Peshtigo, WI also has Oyster mushroom strains and starter kits for sale.

    What is sustainable farming? Sustainable agriculture is farming in sustainable ways meeting society's present food and textile needs, without compromising the ability for current or future generations to meet their needs. Our old school farmers are retiring and passing on their land to their children and the younger generations. With this transfer of land we are encountering the problem of commercial and residential development. The younger generation is selling off land to large developers who are using this prime farming land to build houses and strip malls. We are losing our farmland and need to look towards new methods of farming to become more sustainable in our agriculture.
    With traditional farming there are many elements that play a factor in the production and success of our food. Climate change plays a huge factor as well as soil composition. With all our prime farmland being built on we are losing our most valuable and nutrient rich soil. With indoor farming these factors can be controlled with CEA (controlled environment agriculture). We solve the climate change issue with our on-site Solar Micro-Grid Smart Power Technology with Building Integrated Photovoltaics. The chemical and nutrient composition can be controlled in the water provided to the plants via hydroponics. These are the problems that not only we face but that our children will be faced with if we don't act now.
    With the utilization of solar energy AGRONOMICS can be self-sustaining by powering the processing plant, the farm and the cold storage facilities, all within proximity to one another, with its own power. Being able to control these components means that distribution remains consistent, the facility in a whole is always with the proper amount of power and costs are lowered along with our carbon footprint.
    Indoor vertical farming is still a relatively new method of farming aside from mushrooms, which have been produced in a CEA for hundreds of years. AGRONOMICS is looking to solve the issue of sustainability in indoor farming because whether we want to admit it or not it is the future of agriculture. It is not meant to replace traditional farming methods but to work hand in hand with traditional farmers to solve the food crisis.

    NUS engineers pioneer greener and cheaper technique for biofuel production

    A team of engineers from the National University of Singapore (NUS) recently discovered that a naturally occurring bacterium, Thermoanaerobacterium thermosaccharolyticum TG57, isolated from waste generated after harvesting mushrooms, is capable of directly converting cellulose, a plant-based material, to biobutanol.

    Breakthrough technologies for a sustainable mushroom industry

    Today, BIOrescue partners are celebrating their first milestone: their biorefinery project to recover used mushroom compost is now halfway to success. During the last 18 months, the full process has been successfully tested and the first product prototypes, including a potential new vaccine for plants, are expected to have promising applications in the agricultural sector.
