    This Earth Day, let us remember those who are actually In The Arena

    By AgFuse Administrator

    Published 1 years, 1 month ago

    Farmers seem to be easy targets these days. We are bad because we grow GMO crops (so that we can spray less pesticides) and we are bad when we spray our crops with pesticides (but it’s non-GMO!). When it comes to public perception, fueled by pseudoscientists no less, it seems like we’re in a can’t win situation. However, for those of us who are actually “in the arena”, we know the truth about what we do and the impacts (both good and bad) our farming practices have on the earth... The push towards environmental sustainability by actual farmers and the progress being made is nothing short of remarkable...

    EU Call for Proposals: Information and promotion about the sustainable aspect of rice production

    The objective is to highlight the sustainable aspect of rice sector. Rice production in Europe has a particular environmental dimension, being at the heart of the preservation of certain wetlands. Rice cultivation is a sensitive and specific practice at European level, since it is produced in areas where there are few crop alternatives. Its preservation and improvement contribute to the sustainability of rice producing regions, by playing an active role in maintaining rural areas, protecting nature and preserving biodiversity. Actions shall highlight the environmental sustainability of the production, stressing its beneficial role for climate action and the environment.

    Actions will for example address how the product(s) promoted and its/their production method(s) contribute to:
    - climate change mitigation (e.g. reduction in greenhouse gas emissions) and/or adaptation;
    - biodiversity, conservation and sustainable use (e.g. landscape, genetic resources);
    - sustainable water management (e.g. water use efficiency, reduction of nutrients or pesticides load);
    - sustainable soil management (e.g. erosion control;
    - nutrient balance; prevention of acidification, salinization).

    They may also highlight the role of the rice production in providing employment in rural areas.

    Dateline for proposal submission: 16 April 2019 17:00:00 Brussels time

    The benefits of the drying process

    Risk-free storage
    Grain dryers quickly reduce the moisture content of the freshly harvested grain to safe levels and allow for its long-term storage. 

    Flexibility for the farmer
    Farmers are free to decide when to carry out drying whatever the weather conditions and to sell the grain when the market price is most favourable, generally months after threshing. 

    Increased value
    As well as drying the grain, the dryer removes the impurities collected in the field. This improves the quality of the end product and therefore its market value. 

    Return on the investment
    Purchasing a dryer requires a relatively modest financial commitment and the value of the used machine remains high over the years, thereby guaranteeing an excellent return on the investment.

    Standing by farmers is our commitment at a worldwide level, which also, and especially, means taking care of the whole planet and making decisions focusing on environmental sustainability.

    Journal Title: Sustainability

    ISSN: 2071-1050 (Online)

    Publisher: MDPI AG

    The vast and ever-growing amount of agricultural and food wastes has become a major concern throughout the whole world. Therefore, strategies for their processing and value-added reuse are needed to enable a sustainable utilization of feedstocks and reduce the environmental burden. By-products of potato, tomato, cereals and olive arise in significant amounts in European countries and are consequently of high relevance. Due to their composition with various beneficial ingredients, the waste products can be valorized by different techniques leading to economic and environmental advantages. This paper focuses on the waste generation during industrial processing of potato, tomato, cereals and olives within the European Union and reviews state-of-the-art technologies for their valorization. Furthermore, current applications, future perspectives and challenges are discussed.
