  • Weed Control in Organic Soybean Farms

    By Vijayalaxmi Kinhal

    Updated Oct 24, 2020 

    Experts all agree that there is no silver bullet to control weeds in the organic cultivation of soybeans. Farmers need to use a combination of measures to keep weeds at bay in the short and long term. Soybean vs WeedsWeed control is the main problem in organic agriculture including in soybeans. It is more difficult to control weeds in soybeans because of their compact foliage, which takes longer than grain crops to produce an interlocking canopy that shades inter-row area. On the other hand, weeds have various natural traits that help them spread and establish...

    How to Cultivate Cotton Organically

    By Vijayalaxmi Kinhal

    Updated Oct 24, 2020 

    Though most of the organic cotton in the world comes from Asia, Texas in the USA is also a major producer. Although specific growing methods may vary based on region and farm size, there are general principles that can be applied throughout the world when it comes to growing organic cottonEconomicsThere are many reasons to grow cotton organically. The market share of organic cotton has grown from 1% in 2008 to 21% in 2018. Half of this is grown in India, with China (17%), Kyrgyzstan (7%), and Turkey (7%) being the next major producers. It takes three years for farmers to convert to organic farming, as this is the time required for soil to become free of chemical fertilizers and pesticides...

    Precision Farming Solutions for Weeds in Soybean Farms

    By Vijayalaxmi Kinhal

    Updated Sep 10, 2020 

    The weed control measures used in soybean production need to be overhauled. The development of resistance in weeds has made current technology and management increasingly expensive and comes accompanied with heavy yield losses. Precision management solutions can reduce chemical use in several ways.

    Blockchain & the Future of Fruits & Vegetables Supply Chain

    By Ammar Alshami

    Published Jan 22, 2019 

    What is Blockchain Technology?Regardless of whether you're completely new to the digital currency space, odds are you've known about blockchain and you may even have a rough thought regarding what it is as of now. It's a sufficiently enough concept to grasp: at its most fundamental dimension, it is an exact record of everything which has ever occurred on a given network. That may not sound so impressive straight off the bat, but its significance is pretty great. On the web pretty much everything is hackable – the ramifications of something which is corruption-resistant are immense. How Does It Work?A blockchain is a peer-to-peer network of computers known as nodes that both participate and monitor asset transfers...

    I guess that we will soon have “49 state legal” pork, much as we do catalytic converters… "The Supreme Court has denied a petition to review California's Proposition 12, which requires the sale of meat products in California to conform with the state's animal housing standards.

    Prop 12, set to go into effect on Jan. 1, 2022, will impose animal housing standards that reach far outside the state's borders to farms across the country, driving up costs for both pork producers and consumers, the National Pork Producers Council (NPPC) said in a release." https://www.porkbusiness.com/news/ag-policy/supreme-court-rejects-meat-institutes-petition-review-proposition-12?mkt_tok=ODQzLVlHQi03OTMAAAF980Lb6fM4HUPYobfjgatEtxf78J95MyKB_vwm-6ccSDR9ufkGORKo48BZouoI6jNE8RoS8bRfpZb_UrcsUbADaLFmS7GOesB7O1xtQj3l4zCiugBj.
