    Uruguay now is now investing in USA farms; Read Why.

    By Robert Morgan

    Published 1 years, 3 months ago

    The MERCOSUR Member;Uruguay, with a much smaller landmass and population then either Brazil or Argentina has as the largest sector of its Agricultural production, principally producing Rice, Wheat, Corn, Barley, Livestock, Cattle and Fish, therefore contributing to the BLOC’s extensive Export Import Trade. Agrilend views Uruguay is set to experience a period of structurally lower growth in the coming years, as investment into expanding agricultural production and re-export capacity is tempered and foreign capital begins to flow into Argentina as the new Argentine government liberalizes its investment environment... Export revenues have been highly uneven over the past decade as a result of the varying economic performances in the country’s key export markets... Earlier state owned monopolies were open to foreign investments in the oil and telecommunications sector as well... The good news for American Farmers especially in Cattle, Beef, Livestock, Milk, Dairy, and Cheese is that since China is pretty much buying all of the countries agricultural products at a pace far faster than it can produce Uruguay as well as Argentina and Brazil are seeking to invest in American farms to deliver this needed deficit quickly!

    Starting from Scratch - How Beginning Farmers can Break Ground

    By Gregory Heilers

    Published 1 years, 2 weeks ago

    Despite the fact that there is near-guaranteed job security, thanks to booming population growth, many beginning farmers face seemingly insurmountable obstacles to bringing a product to market. In this article, we’re going to cover how young farmers can start from the ground up, even if they don’t come from a family of farmers... 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... In addition, Jason recommended “farm business planning courses offered through state extension services, local organizations, or state departments of agriculture... He stated that, “The hardest thing is being patient - you have to learn business skills (gross margins, decision-making)...

    NEXUS: Integrated Sustainable Energy for Enhancing Farm Productivity

    Authors: O-Y Yu1, J Ferrell1, H-Y Kim and J Houser

    Published under licence by IOP Publishing Ltd
    IOP Conference Series: Earth and Environmental Science, Volume 188, conference 1

    The NEXUS at Appalachian State University, NC, USA is a multidisciplinary team of faculty and students housed in the Department of Sustainable Technology and the Built Environment whose research lies at the intersection of agriculture, energy, and natural resources. NEXUS is developing inexpensive and efficient sustainable energy greenhouse heating technologies that provide affordable and sustainable means to improve the food-growing capacities and the standard of living for farmer communities in rural Appalachia while reducing the use of fossil fuels. This is done by using on-farm biomass resources/wastes such as agricultural waste and wood chips to produce energy. Growing season extension with heated greenhouses increases the availability of local food throughout the year, expands available markets and increases farmers' profits. The 7 m by 10 m greenhouse (conventional hoop) includes an above ground 5,700-liter water storage tank and an aquaculture pond. It is supported by a small-scale pyrolysis system, an anaerobic digestion system, solar thermal, and compost heating. The heat from various heating methods is delivered and stored in the water storage tank inside the greenhouse. An Arduino module controls the flow rate of water from the tank to various heat exchangers based on temperature differentials. A closed loop heat exchanger circulates heated water from the tank to the aquaculture pond to maintain an optimal temperature for tilapia growth. The pond also acts as a thermal storage, and holds/distributes heat to the greenhouse. The main purpose of this study is to test the integrated sustainable energy heating system for growing season extension with less energy cost. Our preliminary result shows that compared to a conventional space heating system, about 30% of energy was saved to keep the greenhouse temperature available for growing by radiation from the water storage tank.
