  • How Brazilian Big Agriculture is Destroying the Brazilian Amazon

    By Maria Dampman

    Published Apr 4, 2018 

    The rampant deforestation of the Amazon began in the 1970s when the government of Brazil determined they needed to build over 9,000 miles of roads help integrate the rainforest with the populated bordering areas. As the deeper parts of the rainforest became accessible, development of these lands became possible, and once begun, continued at an alarming rate... Judging by their past performance, this appears to be yet another promise the new president and the Ruralists have apparently no intention to honor... So far, it appears that in 2018 Brazil will have a similarly abundant crop... As it appears nothing is going to stop the rapid deforestation of the area, medical researchers have no other option than to try to stop an epidemic before it starts...

    Beauveria Bassiana Products Bed Bugs Control

    By Darren Chan

    Published Oct 15, 2019 

    Beauveria Bassiana fungus is a fungus that grows naturally in soils around the world. Acting as a parasite on various arthropod species, causing white muscardine disease; It widely used as a sprayed biological insecticide to control a great many pests such as bed bugs, termites, thrips, whiteflies, aphids, and different beetles. Once Beauveria Bassiana infects the host insects, the fungus grows fast inside of the insect’s body. Feeding on the nutrients present in the host’s body and producing toxins continuously... Pests can also be used for pine, poplar, willow, locust tree, and other forests as well as apples, pears, apricots, plums, cherries, pomegranates, Japanese persimmons, mangoes, litchi, longan, guava, jujube, walnuts, and other fruit trees...

    Why Hemp Isn’t Going to Save the US Farmer (But How It Could)

    By The Crossover

    Published Aug 16, 2019 

    In late 2018, a new farm bill was passed that legalized the production of hemp as an agricultural commodity while also removing it from the list of “controlled substances”. The Gold Rush of the modern farming era was on. The farming industry was buzzing with new information on how to grow and market this miracle plant. Hemp farming was going to not only save the modern row crop farmer but also make him wealthy in the process... It appears that it could become available in 2020, but as anyone who has ever produced a new crop on their farm can attest, setting up new crop insurance programs is often a (painful) adventure...

    Understanding Agrilend and the MERCOSUR

    By Robert Morgan

    Published Jun 17, 2018 

    The MERCOSUR is a powerful dominant force in international global markets and originally began with its Members;Bolivia, Venezuela, Paraguay, Uruguay, Brazil and Argentina as direct Member Countries, in South America, however it is rapidly gaining momentum by its cooperative Associate Member Countries in Central America and its international prowess relies on its ability to cooperate confidential public private initiative agreements with cooperating countries desiring to do corporate business attached with attractive concensions by partnering with MERCOSUR for the sake of obtaining finance, capital, agricultural export or import, natural resources and as an exchange for favor. It is however important to distinguish its Members current state and its Associate Members current state. The MERCOSUR is a consummation of a likely, if not inevitable global economic marriage. It began its path of greater cooperation in International Trade Finance of Agriculture by the signing of the Iguazu Declaration, signed by Presidents Raul Alfonsin of Argentina and Jose Sarney of Brazil on November, 29, 1985... The Secretariat appears to have no substantive decision making power...

    1-Methylcyclopropene(1-MCP) Ethylene Inhibitors

    By Darren Chan

    Updated May 31 

    1-MCP is one of the most prominent ethylene inhibitors discovered by scientific research in recent years. It is non-toxic, harmless, no residue, and environmentally free. It is widely used in the preservation of fruits, vegetables, and flowers. Active ingredient: 1-Methylcyclopropene (1-MCP) can irreversibly act on ethylene receptors in plants, thereby blocking the normal binding with ethylene and inhibiting the induced fruit ripening related A series of physiological and biochemical reactions... For example, the freshness period of apples and pears can be extended from the original normal storage period of 3-5 months to 8-9 months...

    Nuisance Lawsuits are Taking a Bite Out of Big Pork

    By Maria Dampman

    Published Aug 17, 2018 

    In 1611, William Aldred took his neighbor to court. Thomas Benton was being sued for “erecting a hogstye so near the house of the plaintiff that the air thereof was corrupted. ” In common language, the pigs stank, making it impossible for Aldred to enjoy his home which, in his words, had become “unbearable to live in. ” The courts sided with Aldred, saying the odor was “depriving him of his dignity” and therefore, a violation of his rights...

    · Momentum trading ruled direction for the most part this week as traders in both the wheat and corn complex tried their best to call a bottom and failed. Meanwhile on the bean side of things we saw additional China/US trade headlines and rumors push the market hard in both directions. · After the close last Friday Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue was quoted as saying China had agreed to purchase another 10 mmt of soybeans, in addition to the 10 mmt they had already committed to buy. This allowed a bit of a pop in beans before traders started to question whether or not this commitment was immediate or would be spread out over several years... · Weather continues to dominate the minds of traders and farmers, even if the market appears impervious to any type of bullish scenario...

    "Irrigation sensors are important tools for fine tuning your irrigation. Kicking the dirt or doing a 'the grass looks green irrigation check' is not always enough. Old pear orchards have deep roots and what is happening in the top two inches can be quite different from what is happening below two feet. Irrigation sensors help you make more informed irrigation decisions based on soil moisture conditions in the root zone."

    Machine Learning in Agriculture: A Review

    Authors: Konstantinos G. Liakos, Patrizia Busato, Dimitrios Moshou, Simon Pearson and Dionysis Bochtis

    Journal: Sensors 2018, 18(8), 2674

    Publisher: MDPI

    Machine learning has emerged with big data technologies and high-performance computing to create new opportunities for data intensive science in the multi-disciplinary agri-technologies domain. In this paper, we present a comprehensive review of research dedicated to applications of machine learning in agricultural production systems. The works analyzed were categorized in (a) crop management, including applications on yield prediction, disease detection, weed detection crop quality, and species recognition; (b) livestock management, including applications on animal welfare and livestock production; (c) water management; and (d) soil management. The filtering and classification of the presented articles demonstrate how agriculture will benefit from machine learning technologies. By applying machine learning to sensor data, farm management systems are evolving into real time artificial intelligence enabled programs that provide rich recommendations and insights for farmer decision support and action.

    Illustration Photo: The International Institute of Tropical Agriculture (IITA) and Pennsylvania State University, USA, have collaborated to develop and launch Nuru, an Artificially Intelligent Assistant. Nuru (Swahili for light) uses machine learning to accurately recognize leaves damaged by two important viral diseases of cassava (Cassava Mosaic Disease and Cassava Brown Streak Disease) as well as damage by red and green mites.

    "Overall we have a pretty good looking wheat crop. In some fields we have some bleached heads showing up. In a few cases this is due to wheat stem maggot, but mostly it appears to be dryland foot rot. This isn’t very serious in most fields, just its something to be aware of."

    "As Cotton Incorporated’s senior vice president for global supply chain marketing, Mark Messura is on the front lines of the cotton industry’s battle to reclaim market share against cheaper-priced synthetics. Messura acknowledges cotton has faced some tough times because of the price gap between cotton and synthetic fibers of recent years. He also believes cotton has turned a corner, although researchers and marketers at Cotton Incorporated still have a lot of work to do."
