    How to Source Farm Interns

    By Gregory Heilers

    Published May 12, 2018

    The Keenans were up to their elbows in infrastructure projects, animal husbandry, and a burgeoning farmstay business, and needed help in a bad way. Balancing a post and beam, lime plaster home construction project against caretaking goats and chickens, while juggling four human kids to boot, left the Keenans with little time for their personal lives. So, the family turned to the outside world for help. As a recent college grad excited about farming, I responded to their advertisement, and soon found my way to the delightful Keenan homestead... Don’t pity the intern: a WWOOF-member olive orchard by the AegeanIf not money, what did I receive from the Keenans? I developed carpentry, bottle feeding, and cooking skills...

    Solar Pumping System at Full Belly Farm

    By Ernesto Montenero

    Published Mar 15, 2018

    This 27KW solar pumping system we installed at Full Belly Farm is a solution for pumping in areas not connected to the grid. It generates electricity without emitting greenhouse gases or air pollution. This system will power a 25 HP pump to an almond orchard on 12. 5 acres. Look for solar powered almond butter from Full Belly Farm soon! We also worked with them to make their operations more energy efficient...

    Soil temperatures have risen 4-6F in the past week. This has signaled these Chelan #cherry buds to swell. This is an early ripening variety... Last fall, many orchards were not fertilized as usual due to a late harvest (~3 weeks) and an early snow... If this happened in your orchard(s), you likely have a plant-energy deficit going into the bloom stage...

    It could possibly be a magnesium deficiency. I've seen similar symptoms in other orchard crops and traced it back to that. However, the best way to accurately diagnose is with both soil and tissue tests. Also, look for any patterns you see such as the number of trees affected and the location of trees showing symptoms.

    Different growing regions start at different times of the year, but cultural practices will be similar (based on plant physiology). The 2018 #cherry crop has been dramatic already. What will the next 90 days have in store?
    Being uncertain is not a good place to be, so focus on what you have and take care of that!
    Bud swell and bud break mean the roots are active.
    Start #soil fertility programs now and get a strong start for your cherry orchard.

    Data analysis and inference model for automating operational monitoring activities in Precision Farming and Precision Forestry applications

    Each application of Precision Agriculture or Forestry should be supported by a technological platform able to perform, in an integrated way, the following data-information cycle functions: 1) data collection; 2) data processing; 3) data analysis and evaluation; 4) use of information. In accordance to this view, information are data that are usefully used in a decision making process or within a reporting protocol destined to users external to the enterprise (certification tasks). In order to manage the platform in a complete and efficient manner an adequate information system is needed. Firstly, the paper shows a classification of the possible monitoring solutions based on the different enterprise typologies, highlighting the main technological and interpretative requirements. Secondly, some case studies related to the application of operational monitoring in orchards and forestry are introduced, mainly focusing on some peculiar aspects of the algorithms developed for the implementation of the inference engines.
