  • The Critical State of Agriculture

    By The Crossover

    Published Mar 29, 2018 

    A key mental model that originated in the field of physics is that of the Critical State. One of the best ways I've seen the Critical State described is in Mark Buchanan's book Ubiquity: Why Catastrophes Happen. The key idea is the notion of the critical state, a special kind of organization characterized by a tendency toward sudden and tumultuous changes, an organization that seems to arise naturally under diverse conditions when a system gets pushed away from equilibrium. Basic understanding of the critical state phenomena is important because it alerts us to the fact that while great, volatile events often seemingly come out of nowhere, the truth is that usually there has been a storm brewing right in front of our eyes. And when factors that naturally self-organize towards this critical state finally come together, the tiniest event can cause a chain reaction that has reverberations across the entire world...

    Unsecured Business Loans Defined

    By Future Loans

    Published Nov 1, 2020 

    Before you take out a business loan, you need to understand the difference between secured and unsecured loans so you can choose the best option for your business. The biggest difference between secured loans and unsecured loans is that secured loans require you to pledge collateral and unsecured loans don’t... These loans are only used in certain circumstances, most commonly for large real estate acquisitions by established investment groups... A lender will review your tax returns, profit and loss statement, credit report, and bank records to measure your free cash flow... In other words, the lender will want to review everything that would be required for an unsecured loan plus the state and value of your collateral...

    World Cocoa Foundation and Feed the Future announced 12 Million USD in favor of the cocoa sector in Cameroon, Côte d’Ivoire, Ghana and Nigeria

    Nearly 500 representatives of the global chocolate and cocoa sector, including farmers, have gathered in Côte d’Ivoire, the world’s leading producer of cocoa, to address critical sustainability issues confronting the crop, which is the main source of income for millions of people across West Africa and in large parts of Latin America and Southeast Asia. The Partnership Meeting & Cocoa Sustainability Trade Fair, centered on the theme “People, Planet, Profit in a Changing World,” is jointly organized by the World Cocoa Foundation (WCF) and Côte d’Ivoire’s cocoa regulatory agency, Le Conseil du Café-Cacao.

    Underscoring the urgency of these issues, WCF and the United States Government’s Feed the Future are launching African Cocoa Initiative II. The five-year, $12 million effort will increase production of quality cocoa planting materials and provide financial services to cocoa farmers in Cameroon, Côte d’Ivoire, Ghana and Nigeria. The program is a joint effort to support the implementation of the World Cocoa Foundation’s CocoaAction strategy for cocoa sustainability and brings together the public and private sector.

    Exploring the potential of Cassava in promoting Agricultural growth in Nigeria

    Authors: Sanzidur Rahman, Brodrick O. Awerije

    Cassava is one of the major food crops in Nigeria, with multiple uses from human consumption to industrial applications. This study explores the potential of cassava in Nigerian agriculture based on a review of cassava development policies; performs a trend analysis of the cultivation area, production, productivity, and real price of cassava and other competing crops for the period 1961–2013; identifies the sources of growth in production; and examines the production constraints at the local level based on a survey of 315 farmers/processors and 105 marketers from Delta State. The results revealed that several policies and programmes were implemented to develop the cassava sector with mixed outcomes. Although cassava productivity grew at 1.5% per annum (p.a.) during the post-structural adjustment programme period (1993–2013), its real price declined at a rate of 3.5% p.a. The effect of yield is the main source of growth in production, contributing 76.4% of the total growth followed by the area effect (28.2%). The cassava sector is constrained by inadequate market infrastructure, processing facilities, and lack of information and unstable prices at the local level. The widespread diffusion of improved tropical manioc selection technologies and investments in market and marketing infrastructure, processing technologies, irrigation/water provision and information dissemination are recommended to enhance the potential of the cassava sector to support agricultural growth in Nigeria.

    AfDB Nigeria to help attract chinese investment in the special agro-Industrial processing zones

    The Bank delegation, led by Professor Banji Oyelaran-Oyeyinka, the senior special adviser on industrialisation to the African Development Bank’s President, paid a courtesy call to Nigeria’s Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, who assured the consortium of the tremendous investment opportunities Nigeria offers.

    Discussions centered on Chinese direct investments and partnerships with Nigerian agribusinesses as well as ventures with Nigerian state governments and agribusinesses in the development of agro-Industrial parks.

    The SAPZ is a model that requires the full commitment of all levels of government and for this reason the federal and state governments are actively involved in the planning and implementation of the programme”. Professor Oyelaran-Oyeyinka noted that, “due to the significant financial requirements, private resources will be critical”.

    Alternative Source of Cooking Gas – Conversion of Crop Waste to Energy

    The research is aimed to reduce the total dependence on cooking gas refined from petroleum product for rural dwellers due to the difficult terrain and challenges of transportation system encountered. Study was carried out in Igbedi Community of Kolokuma/Opokuma Local Government Area in Bayelsa State, Nigeria; to procure an alternative source of cooking gas for indigenes. The sample used for this research work is waste materials collected from arable crops predominantly cultivated by indigenes of this community. They are such as waste from cassava, sugar cane and grains (maize). Study unveils at the end of test duration that high performance rate recovered for average energy and moisture content, density, pressure and temperature for domestic cooking gas as obtained from cassava piles waste is 7.2391KJ/Kg, 45.56%, 842.4kgm-3, 6098Nm-2 and 3.37? respectively with the support of using Waste Transformation Techniques. Hence, waste from cassava piles satisfying the real properties of cooking gas from petroleum product as revealed in the review literature is the major source of alternative cooking gas from crop waste. Therefore, to maintain sustainability this reliable and effective proven gas from crop wastes is aided with the provision of a larger waste disposal tank for waste collection at an affordable rate, design to recover at least a good quantity of cooking gas for every home. Thus, a consistent follow up with the lay down procedure to convert waste to energy will give rise to the availability of the gas.

    The Future of Africa depends on Agriculture

    Agriculture is instrumental in Africa’s poverty: it must also be instrumental in its wealth. Only through agricultural regeneration can growth, diversification and job creation occur for African economies, for no region of the world has ever industrialised without the agricultural sector being first transformed.

    In short, the future of Africa depends on agriculture. But Africa cannot develop quickly if farming remains largely a subsistence activity. 60% of the population are involved in farming, yet it accounts for less than one seventh of its GDP, and African agricultural yield is the lowest in the world.

    So Africa is late in developing but even this very fact offers a large scale opportunity for international investors and big-ticket entrepreneurs.

    Alternative Source of Cooking Gas – Conversion of Crop Waste to Energy

    Authors: Ajoko, Tolumoye John

    Journal Title: American Journal of Engineering Research

    Publisher: American Journal of Engineering Research

    The research is aimed to reduce the total dependence on cooking gas refined from petroleum product for rural dwellers due to the difficult terrain and challenges of transportation system encountered. Study was carried out in Igbedi Community of Kolokuma/Opokuma Local Government Area in Bayelsa State, Nigeria; to procure an alternative source of cooking gas for indigenes. The sample used for this research work is waste materials collected from arable crops predominantly cultivated by indigenes of this community. They are such as waste from cassava, sugar cane and grains (maize). Study unveils at the end of test duration that high performance rate recovered for average energy and moisture content, density, pressure and temperature for domestic cooking gas as obtained from cassava piles waste is 7.2391KJ/Kg, 45.56%, 842.4kgm-3, 6098Nm-2 and 3.37? respectively with the support of using Waste Transformation Techniques. Hence, waste from cassava piles satisfying the real properties of cooking gas from petroleum product as revealed in the review literature is the major source of alternative cooking gas from crop waste. Therefore, to maintain sustainability this reliable and effective proven gas from crop wastes is aided with the provision of a larger waste disposal tank for waste collection at an affordable rate, design to recover at least a good quantity of cooking gas for every home. Thus, a consistent follow up with the lay down procedure to convert waste to energy will give rise to the availability of the gas.
