    By Darren Chan

    Published May 18, 2020 

    Fish protein organic liquid fertilizer is a pure natural fertilizer, It's rich in organic matter, fish protein, peptides, biological polysaccharides, etc. It's also a kind of functional fertilizer, can be used as base fertilizer, topdressing, can be irrigated root, drip irrigation, flushing spray. According to Fish protein fertilizer with rich organic matter, protein, polypeptide, etc. , after plowing soil significantly increased the content of soil organic matter, can rapidly promote the soil microbial breeding, greatly activate the soil nutrient, increase the soil fertility, improve soil protecting fertilizer water retention capacity, the use of fish protein fertilizer can effectively improve soil harden problems, maintain soil fertility...

    7 Common Plant Diseases: How to Identify & Treat Them

    By Darren Chan

    Published Apr 21, 2020 

    For home gardeners, nothing is more frustrating than seeing their work destroyed by pests and diseases. The disease occurs when environmental conditions are suitable for the growth of pathogens on susceptible hosts. Some pathogens attack a variety of plants, while others attack only specific plants. In addition, some pathogens can attack all parts of the plant, while others attack only selected tissues. Many types of organisms cause plant infections, but the top five types of plant pathogens are fungi, water molds, bacteria, viruses, and nematodes...

    An Introduction to Augmentative Biocontrol

    By Thomas Grandperrin

    Published Apr 7, 2020 

    In the previous article in this series we discussed classical biocontrol, which is the practice of identifying the origins of pests found in local fields, then finding the natural enemies of those pests in their foreign origins and bringing the “enemy of my enemy” (otherwise known as “beneficials”) back from their homelands to local farms to renew old rivalries and help suppress pest populations. As we have seen, this strategy is usually coordinated, or at least regulated, by public organizations at a regional, national or even continental scale. But a lot of the pests damaging our crops are actually native to our regions and already have local natural enemies... Crop examples include permanent crops such as vineyards, citrus and apple orchards as well as annual crops such as strawberry, cannabis, and corn... One common example in California is controlling the populations of two spotted spider mite (Tetranychus urticae) in strawberry crops by releasing a beneficial predator mite, Phytoseiulus persimilis...

    Hydroponics 101: A Basic Guide to Start Soilless Cultivation

    By Miriam Pitzalis

    Updated Aug 20, 2020 

    Soilless cultivation is an innovative process that was introduced in recent years for protected crops. This practice has been established for the large-scale production of fresh vegetables and ornamental plants, especially in the countries of Northern Europe, with the main purposes of:- Increasing production- Optimizing acreage - Reducing working times- Reducing the need for water and fertilizers - Optimizing climatic conditionsThe continuous climate changes, the increasing interest in environmental impacts, and the availability of cheap facilities and simple technologies all lead to an increased use of soilless cultivation in commercial applications. When talking about soilless crops, we’re referring to two types of systems:- Real hydroponics, without substrate: the root system of a plant is directly in contact with the water and the nutrient solution (floating system, nutrient film technique, aeroponics)- Hydroponics with substrate: the plant grows on inert, organic materials, or a mixture between them (cultivation bags, slabs, pots or bins)In these systems, fertigation feeds the plants and involves the use of water-soluble fertilizers. In the most sophisticated and technological systems, the nutrient solution is recycled continuously, thus ensuring maximum efficiency of the water resources used (closed cycle)...

    1-Methylcyclopropene(1-MCP) Apples Fresh-Keeping Agent

    By Darren Chan

    Updated Jun 17 

    1-MCP is a product widely used in apples around the world to improve eating quality and storability. Ripening of the fruit is initiated by ethylene, and in some cases this is also true. To a certain extent, the ripening process's speed is regulated by its concentration in the fruit. Fruits generally soften, and apples soften more rapidly when the ethylene content is high, but ethylene is also volatile in the fruit needed to stimulate the formation of flavor-producing substances... Application of 1-MCPFruits: apple, pear, apricot, peach, persimmon, honeydew melon, plum, nectarine, kiwi, cherry, longan, bayberry, Cucurbita melon, jujube, avocado, grape, mango, papaya, banana, passion fruit, Strawberry, pineapple, guava, etc...

    IoT-Based Strawberry Disease Prediction System for Smart Farming

    Authors: Sehan Kim, Meonghun Lee and Changsun Shin

    Journal: Sensors 2018, 18(11), 4051;

    Publisher: MDPI

    Crop diseases cannot be accurately predicted by merely analyzing individual disease causes. Only through construction of a comprehensive analysis system can users be provided with predictions of highly probable diseases. In this study, cloud-based technology capable of handling the collection, analysis, and prediction of agricultural environment information in one common platform was developed. The proposed Farm as a Service (FaaS) integrated system supports high-level application services by operating and monitoring farms as well as managing associated devices, data, and models. This system registers, connects, and manages Internet of Things (IoT) devices and analyzes environmental and growth information. In addition, the IoT-Hub network model was constructed in this study. This model supports efficient data transfer for each IoT device as well as communication for non-standard products, and exhibits high communication reliability even in poor communication environments. Thus, IoT-Hub ensures the stability of technology specialized for agricultural environments. The integrated agriculture-specialized FaaS system implements specific systems at different levels. The proposed system was verified through design and analysis of a strawberry infection prediction system, which was compared with other infection models.
