  • 2021 Oregon Seed Crops Report - Cover Crops, Forages, Turf

    By Risa DeMasi

    Published Jun 14 

    As reported by Jerry Hall, GO SeedThe 2021 crop is going to be very interesting as inventory stocks on many turf, forage, and cover crop seed species are at all time lows. There will certainly be a lot of jockeying for position at the cleaning facilities by a lot of companies for a lot of different species. The Oregon seed industry will be working diligently to try to get as much seed out as quickly as possible but there will be issues. Production fields looked rough going into the winter and many fields didn’t look a whole lot better coming out of it... Below is a table that shows the precipitation in Salem Oregon over the last five crop years...

    Role of the Virtual marketplace in facilitating trade challenges

    By Ammar Alshami

    Published Jan 17, 2019 

    A virtual marketplace is an online forum where many vendors come and sell their products to interested buyers through a third party website or app. The virtual marketplace is differentiated from an e-commerce site because it offers products from many vendors instead of single and from a buyer’s perspective; it provides more options for the single item. It is basically a non-physical bazaar that exists in spatial digital dimensions and provides one-click access to sellers and interested buyers. In this world of globalization and digitalization, time is considered precious commodity and diminishing physical constraints for shoppers and overhead costs for vendors are considered to be the elixir to carry forward the businesses in this new era... The biggest advantage of the virtual marketplace, as it looks, is the fact that now exotic products such as figs from Jerusalem, coconuts from the shores of Bali or Tamarind from the lush gardens of India is at your doorstep...

  • Use of renewable energy for desalination in urban agriculture in the GCC countries: Possibilities and challenges

    Authors: Salem Al-Jabri, Mushtaque Ahmed

    Journal Title: Journal of Agricultural and Marine Sciences

    ISSN: 2410-1060 (Print); 2410-1079 (Online)

    Publisher: Sultan Qaboos University

    The current dependence of the GCC countries on fossil oil and gas is unwise in terms of economic and environmental sustainability. GCC countries must consider the use of renewable energy to cope with price fluctuations of oil and gas in the global market and to lower the emission of green house gases. The demand for food and water in the GCC countriesis increasing due to high growth rate of population. Given the weather conditions and available amounts of natural water resources, the demand on food and water cannot be met unless alternative sources of water are considered. Several studies pointed out that the desalination technology is probably the only option for producing ample amounts of water for food production in arid environments. This work explores the potential of use of desalination technology for producing irrigation water in GCC countries, with special emphasis on experience of the Sultanate of Oman compared with that of Spain. Desalination can always provide a tailored-quality irrigation water at any climatic conditions. The main challenge for considering desalination for agriculture is purely economic; where GCC countries could consider it only if intensive horticulture of high-value cash crops, such as vegetables and flowers in controlled environments, is considered. Disposal of brine water is also a challenge and must be done at an additional cost. Depending on the quality of desalinated water, several studies showed that solar-operated desalination technologies are in a mature stage and economically viable. Therefore, solar energy can make the desalination technology an attractive option to sustain agriculture and food supply in GCC countries.
