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... For this reason, the only solution for reducing pollution and drying cost is to make good use of a rice husk furnace. SUNCUE Company Ltd, a leading developer of drying technology for more than 48 years with customers in over 40 countries around the world, has successfully developed the SB Rice Husk Furnace Grain Dryer and has earned the patent on “complete combustion” technology... This triples the efficiency !What makes the SUNCUE SB rice husk furnace uniquely superior is the fact that it is the only furnace in the world that can overcome the handling problem of black smoke air pollution without using a smoke wash system. In addition, the SUNCUE rice husk furnace is the only furnace that has passed not only strict performance testing but also stringent air pollution testing in both Japan and Taiwan...

When a retired farmer and organic farming consultant is motivated to put his boots back on and get back into the fields, you know something special is happening. That’s exactly how Daniel Rotberg felt when he studied the first GroAloe trial conducted on grapes with a major leafhopper infestation. The trial shows that, “The overall health of the Vineyard has completely transformed from weak and in some places, diseased plants, to a robust and healthy condition with many more grape shoots now forming. What is even more encouraging is that all of the new growth has not been bitten by any new or pre-existing leafhoppers... ” The results that GroAloe is showing on crops ranging from grapes grown in Canada, rice in Indonesia to Cannabis and Hemp in California and Oregon are remarkable...

SUNCUE Rice Husk Furnace: From Fossil Fuel Agriculture to Ecological Cycle AgricultureIn order to pursue high production, fossil fuel is used in large quantities in modern agricultural activities... launched a biomass energy rice husk furnace dryer to use rural waste rice husk as fuel to achieve the effects of environmental protection, energy conservation and emission reduction, and to realize the transformation from petroleum agriculture to ecological recycling agriculture... The temperature of the hot air is precisely controlled by the computer, and the agricultural products are quickly and uniformly dried at a low temperature to help farmers to produce high-quality, high-priced various grains, improve grain quality and increase farmers' income. Rice processing enterprises can use the rice husk left after rice milling as a heat source, which can save huge fuel costs every year, greatly reduce drying costs and increase corporate profits. At the same time, compared with other fuels with different levels of CO2 emissions, rice husks can basically achieve 0 emissions...

Traditional agricultural skills that made civilization possible are still alive and in use today. At the same time, hundreds of farm technician job listings across the US, and the rise of precision agriculture and software, clearly evidence the need for technologically-savvy farm technicians in the 21st century agricultural industry. It’s no surprise that tech-friendly millennials interested in farming are encouraged by these developments, which may make farming less labor intensive than in generations past. Technology may even be the antidote to a number of ills plaguing modern agriculture, which have led to a drastic decrease in the number of farms across the United States... The government regulatory burden has killed far more farmers than land prices...

If someone asked you, “How do plants take up the water and nutrients they need?” you’d probably tell them through the roots. But did you know that for many crops, those roots aren’t working alone?That’s because most plant species associate with mycorrhizal fungi. What is mycorrhizal fungi? University of Alberta biological scientist JC Cahill says that mycorrhizas are actually the interaction between a fungus and a plant. Although there are many different types of mycorrhizae, the only one crop farmers need to be concerned about is arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF), as 65% of plant species associate with it... “In Canada, because prices are good for canola right now, a lot of farmers are going back to mono-cropping,” she says...

In the columns across the top, we will place target prices... Parenthetically, you should note that these target prices include your local basis...

It’s no secret that America’s farmers are aging. In the last 35 years, the average age of American farmers has risen more than eight years to over 58 years-old... This requires placing an easement on the land, reducing its purchase price while receiving a payment of the difference in the process... Below are three different ways in which young farmers can establish sweat equity while an older generation is able to live out their life on their farm:Lease-to-own: depending on how the lease is set up, the tenant can slowly contribute to the purchase price and/or down payment on a future purchase of the land... The harsh reality is that today, the land price to production capacity ratio is completely different than it was in the previous generation...
