    Blockchain Technology: A Lifeline to Small-Scale Farmers

    By Gregory Heilers

    Published 6 months ago

    To better understand the blockchain, and its potential impact on the agricultural industry, I sat down with Edwin Luk (Twitter: @EdwinLuk8175), a partner at Sysconverge and advisor to the Blockchain Advisory Council... Unlike the Internet, blockchain technology does not allow for participants to hide in obscurity, but actually brings greater transparency to each transaction... 21st Century Farmers Increase Revenues with Smart(er) ContractsUp until now, as Edwin explained, globalization has allowed massive corporations to leverage their economies of scale and “push the small and medium-scale producers and processors” out of local markets, both in the US and abroad... The resulting pressure from major food and agricultural corporations on small and medium-scale producers has led to a decrease from roughly 6 million family farms in 1935 to only 2 million surviving by 2012... The blockchain “provides them with better market accessibility, faster remittance from customers, and less susceptibility to fraud and corruption from middlemen that handle their product in the different steps in the supply chain,” said Edwin...

    Starting from Scratch - How Beginning Farmers can Break Ground

    By Gregory Heilers

    Published 1 month ago

    Jason’s experience as a first generation farmer, and as an agent connecting farmers with resources, balances well with Joel’s, who took over the family farm, and has since mentored scores of intern cohorts... Land For Good’s work includes helping beginning farmers in New England “think through these options, such as rental agreements, to better allow them to start a farm on a financial scale they feel comfortable with... Jason made sure to offer the following caveat: “This advice certainly depends on what kind of operation, what scale, and perhaps what region of the country a beginning farmer might find themselves in... ”Joel has mentored scores of interns at Polyface Farms, and has found that “young people want what their mentor or other masters have acquired over a lifetime. If it doesn’t come quickly, they get discouraged, frustrated, and resentful...

    com , WA,viber, telegram +380633196909)! The technology and products are 100% organic!!!!Scientific Research Institute of Noospheric Valeology presents its program of planetary ecological safety, inextricably linked with the problem of global warming. Our program returns epigenetic memory to plants, enhances the ability to capture by the plants high-energy photons (significantly increases the photosynthetic efficiency), contributes to the growth rate of chemical processes in the cell at the nanoscale level, that in application plan increases the regeneration of oxygen (О2) and fresh water (Н2О) by plants and disposal of CO2, leads to the reduction of greenhouse effect, significantly increasing crop yields, restores humus and biota in the soil, promotes improvement and remediation of lands... We can offer desperately needed applied programs at the nanoscale for the development of agriculture, planetary environmental safety and other industries. We want to offer cooperation in the exploration and use of molecular SMART technologies at the nanoscale and others micro scales in various industries... This will result in the further return of quality to food products, internal content, which over the last 20 years according to the results of Swiss research laboratory decreased by 75-95%, while increasing crop yields to maximum genetic indicator!The author of this technology is Founder and scientific directorof “ Scientific Research Institute of Noospheric Valeology ofPublic Health and Human Planetary Environmental Safety”,Director of Scientific Research Center of the UNESCO Department No...

    On the Offensive with Cover Crops

    By Pat Rogers

    Published 9 months ago

    In the past few years, we have made a concerted effort to increase the usage of cover crops and other conservation practices on our farm. I have learned a lot of lessons from this experience but one stands out above the rest... How often do our soils approach the critical temperature state during the hot summer months in SC? The presence of a thick stand of cover crops can help ensure that soil moisture isn’t the limiting factor to your field crops... Cover crops help row crops access additional nutrients in the soil profile through four different biological processes: 1) The breakdown of carbon from decaying cover crop residue, 2) Roots from the cover crops produce “exudate acids” which convert minerals in the soil into plant available nutrients 3) The cover crops act as a host plant for arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi, which are microbes that have a direct effect on plant health and nutrient storage capacity of the soil within the root zone of the plant and 4) By producing additional Nitrogen with leguminous cover crops... The best case scenario is to balance out your blend amongst each species but if costs are prohibitive it’s better to increase the rate of small grains than to just use a lower overall rate...

    Top 5 Reasons Why Black Oats Are The Best Beginner's Cover Crop

    By Cover Crops

    Published 1 month ago

    It's a fact: cover crops tend to make good farmers into great farmers and average farmers into bad farmers. Cover crops work. But, management is key and the learning curve can be steep... Here in SC, we begin seeding ours behind corn in the middle of August and will plant them up until the end of November... They also take longer to decompose, thus tying up scavenged nitrogen that we’d rather have available to our cash crops...

    Citizens Weekly Newsletter September 21, 2018

    Published 4 weeks ago

    This Week in AgricultureA Mixed Bag of Information from the Week that Was: September 21, 2018· An interesting week of trade as it appears most of the bearishness that came from last week’s USDA updated supply and demand numbers has moved to the sidelines. Potential changes to Chinese trade policy across the board, ideas of soybean arbitrage on a global scale and talk of inflationary pressure were seen as mostly price supportive, or at the very least the desire to move to new lows has dissipated for now... However this week we have seen what could only be described as a softer, gentler China when it comes to trade policy... Some view this as a move to pre-emptively change how they do business before any discussions over a status change with the WTO even have to take place... · Next week we will continue to monitor trade discussions across the board as improved weather and cooler temps should allow harvest progress to advance in areas not flooded by extremely heavy rains seen in some locations this past week...
