  • Is the right to repair all that you think?

    A deeper look at the Right to Repair dialog and what you need to know... Even if the circuitry is not intrinsically linked, they impact one another... The rest of the storyTo many, the Right to Repair movement is the answer to the problem... Technology brings capability, but that attribute requires a new level of complexity not seen before in the agricultural community.

    Variable-Rating Fertilizer: Does It Pay Off?

    By Laura Barrera

    Updated May 12, 2020 

    51 “Over several thousand acres, the savings are substantial and help pay for precision agriculture upgrades,” the authors say... DeLay explains that research has shown that for variable-rate to pay off, there needs to be a sufficient amount of variation on the farm... For example, if your county corn yield average is 190 bushels and you have parts of your fields that are significantly above or below that, it would be good to investigate whether VRT for fertilizer application is a good investment... “This implies a proportional increase in overhead expenditures associated with variable-rate that keeps the percent increase in net returns the same as the percent impact on operating profit,” the report states... “It could be a little of ‘Because we’ve invested and tied money into this, we naturally want it to pay off,’ but it could also be that it’s generating a return for the producer,” he says...

    Trichoderma harzianum effects on control soil pathogens

    By Darren Chan

    Published Mar 25, 2019 

    Here we would like to introduce trichoderma‘s effect on control soil pathogens. Trichoderma grows on the surface of roots, where it provides disease control and enhances root growth. Its spores survive in the soil, but the food it lives on is mostly secreted from the root surface. Since the fungus multiplies on its own, it is different from seed-applied fungicides... The process is called mycoparasitism...

    Impact of Final Opportunity Zone Regulations on Farmers & Agribusinesses

    By Tyler Davis

    Published Jan 8, 2020 

    While we will discuss these in detail, taxpayers must first have a solid understanding of the basic Opportunity Zone rules and benefits. The Opportunity Zone initiative was enacted as part of the Tax Cuts & Jobs Act of 2017. Initially passed on December 22, 2017, the rules for this program are found in Internal Revenue Code Section 1400Z. These rules provide multiple tax benefits and incentives to taxpayers who invest in businesses or properties that are located within designated Opportunity Zones... To qualify for the tax benefits, a taxpayer must substantially improve the property or business in which they acquire, unless the property is original use property meaning it has never been previously depreciated by a different owner...

    USDA Adopts Market Transparency Policies Backed by NCBA

    By North American Ag

    Published Aug 6 

    Department of Agriculture-Agricultural Marketing Service (USDA-AMS) announced today that it will begin publishing a National Daily Direct Formula Base Cattle report, which will provide greater information into the foundational prices used in cattle market formulas, grids, and contracts, and a National Weekly Cattle Net Price Distribution report, which will show the volume of cattle purchased at each different level of pricing within those formulas, grids, and contracts. NCBA has long urged USDA to adopt policies that increase transparency in the cattle markets and applauds this effort to provide producers greater insight into cattle transactions. “USDA’s announcement is a significant step toward increasing transparency in the cattle markets,” said NCBA Vice President of Government Affairs Ethan Lane... NCBA remains committed to maximizing market transparency and looks forward to building on this momentum to shed more light on the fed cattle trade... The addition of these new publications will allow producers to better compare their marketing arrangement to others and allow them to make more informed business decisions on their operations...

    Comparison between pivot and drip irrigation in corn cultivation

    By Miriam Pitzalis

    Updated Aug 19, 2020 

    The main problem concerning corn cultivation is water stress: the most critical phases that suffer from water shortages, which can lead to significant production losses, are from the emission of the plume to flowering and the ripening stage. In order to obtain high yields, it is necessary to satisfy the evapotranspiration demand of the crop, which is between 0. 16 and 0. 22 inches/yard per day... Pivot vs Drip irrigation: economic comparisonsIn a study conducted by the University of Turin, the costs and efficiency of the two systems were analyzed...

    Grain Drying Technology Using Paddy Husk

    By SUNCUE Grain Dryer

    Published Mar 28, 2019 

    Burning paddy husk in a rice husk furnace can be a complete substitute for gas or diesel by burning paddy husk to provide necessary thermal energy... Paddy husk had long been considered rural waste, but with this technical innovation it can produce amazing thermal energy. The thermal energy generated by 1 kilogram of paddy husk is about 3,000 to 3,500 kcal... 5 kilograms of paddy husk can provide the equivalent thermal energy produced by one liter of diesel. Paddy husk is a valuable biomass energy and its net CO2 emission is zero...

    The Simple Business Lesson that Farmland Partners Can Teach Us

    By The Crossover

    Published Jul 14, 2018 

    There’s a simple lesson to be learned from the recent Farmland Partner’s accusations that has nothing to do with ethics... I want to make that part clear... Not for the purposes of picking on Farmland Partners but to get a good reminder of a simple business lesson that can lead to ruin if forgotten (as it often is). A good investment is determined by two factors: The price you pay relative to the value of the investment and the rate of return that the investment produces... If you live or farm in an area where Farmland Partners has purchased property in recent years, and you have an idea of what fair market value is in your area, then there’s a good chance that one of the major themes of the article was not news to you...

    Palm Oil Production can be Expand in a Sustainable way

    Land used for palm oil production could be nearly doubled without expanding into protected or high-biodiversity forests, according to a new study published in the journal Global Environmental Change. The study is the first to map land suitable for palm oil production on a global scale, while taking into account environmental and climate considerations.

    “There is room to expand palm oil production and to do it in a sustainable way,” says IIASA researcher Johannes Pirker, who led the study.

    Palm oil production has expanded massively, from 6 million hectares in 1990 to 16 million in 2010, an area about the size of Uruguay. The oil, which is used for cooking and as a food additive, now accounts for about 30% of all vegetable oil used worldwide. Palm oil is controversial, in particular because much of this expansion came at the expense of biodiversity-rich tropical forests, which were cut to make room for new plantations. But oil palm farming has also contributed to lifting millions of people out of poverty in Indonesia and Malaysia, the top palm oil producing countries. And an important share of palm oil producers are small-holder farmers who rely on the commodity as their primary income.

    Parrot Bluegrass The Multipurpose Quadcopter Solution For Agriculture

    Parrot Bluegrass is a multipurpose quadcopter designed for agriculture professionals, and helps farmers improve their ROI, using its two embedded cameras; video camera and multispectral sensor. With its front Full HD video camera, this solution lets users visually monitor the farm’s infrastructure, land and herds. It also enables farmers to get a full overview and detect problem areas in all types of crop fields quickly and efficiently, thanks to its multispectral sensor designed for Precision Agriculture, Parrot Sequoia, and the easy to use processing cloud platform - AIRINOV FIRST+.

    Parrot Bluegrass can automatically cover up to 30 hectares at 70 m / 230 ft. flight altitude per battery use. It can also fly at low altitudes, optimising crops that may require precise mapping.

    Papaya Tree Detection with UAV Images Using a GPU-Accelerated Scale-Space Filtering Method

    Authors: Hao Jiang, Shuisen Chen, Dan Li, Chongyang Wang and Ji Yang

    Journal Title: Remote Sensing

    ISSN: 2072-4292 (Print)

    Publisher: MDPI AG

    The use of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) can allow individual tree detection for forest inventories in a cost-effective way. The scale-space filtering (SSF) algorithm is commonly used and has the capability of detecting trees of different crown sizes. In this study, we made two improvements with regard to the existing method and implementations. First, we incorporated SSF with a Lab color transformation to reduce over-detection problems associated with the original luminance image. Second, we ported four of the most time-consuming processes to the graphics processing unit (GPU) to improve computational efficiency. The proposed method was implemented using PyCUDA, which enabled access to NVIDIA’s compute unified device architecture (CUDA) through high-level scripting of the Python language. Our experiments were conducted using two images captured by the DJI Phantom 3 Professional and a most recent NVIDIA GPU GTX1080. The resulting accuracy was high, with an F-measure larger than 0.94. The speedup achieved by our parallel implementation was 44.77 and 28.54 for the first and second test image, respectively. For each 4000 × 3000 image, the total runtime was less than 1 s, which was sufficient for real-time performance and interactive application.
