  • How Farmers can cash in big with the Agrilend new digital international crypto-currencies.

    By Robert Morgan

    Published Jun 12, 2018  

    For decades, Agricultural businesses have been at the mercy of external as well as internal factors all disregarded by their reliant financial institutions for a multitude of complexities essential for business operations. From export, import, credit, financing, trade, as well as political turmoil or price fluctuations in commodity prices, gold, silver, currency exchanges, interest rates, and bond prices to name a few. A new international encrypted digital crypto-currency is being developed right now by Agrilend, LLC founders to be used exclusively for farmers and will position an initial coin offering in the not so distant future. Farmers who need cash are not usually technologically savvy and are used to the old fashioned ways of having the bank lend, they are now seeking investment but also wanting to remain anonymous, the same as many private investors are seeking anonymity.

    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...

    How Precision Technology can Tackle Cotton’s Irrigation and Pests’ Challenges in the 2020s

    By Vijayalaxmi Kinhal

    Published Aug 3  

    The high-value returns from cotton as well as the higher costs of production should be ample incentives for adopting precision farming. The vagaries of climate change and its disruptions to the normal farm schedule only increases the value of this information technology for cotton. Climate Change is Altering Pest Attack PatternsIncreasing drought and extreme weather due to climate change are impacting cotton in unforeseen ways. The unpredictable changes in weather patterns aren’t just disturbing the environmental conditions needed for cotton crops.

    How international money wants to invest in American Farms.

    By Robert Morgan

    Published Jun 12, 2018  

    MERCOSUR, or “ The Common Market of the Southern Cone” was established in March of 1990 by the Treaty of Asuncion and was implemented to create a Common Agricultural trade export import market by its now four signatories ( Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay, Uruguay and Bolivia) Venezuela is no longer part of the BLOC and Bolivia has a rather divided influence in MERCOSUR’S role. It has succeeded its predecessor, LAFTA ( Latin American Free Trade Association) in both economic integration as well as unlimited agricultural capital funding and has evolved into a powerful international influence in trade, agriculture, finance, exports, imports, and tariffs with many allies of which desire and inherently depend on its scalability including the United Arab Emirates, The European Union and more recently The United States of America. Brazil and Argentina are the largest Member countries, in territory and population in South America and each have large as well as highly developed consumer markets. Argentina is rich in Natural Resources and has a robust Export Oriented Agricultural Sector. Brazil on the other hand has a much larger economy than Argentina with established Agricultural, Mining, Manufacturing, and Service Sectors...

    7 Common Plant Diseases: How to Identify & Treat Them

    By Darren Chan

    Published Apr 21  

    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...

    ATLAS open call: Weed and Pest Control

    The open call aims to establish these pilot studies in alignment with agricultural use cases at the farming operations of the consortium’s end-user partners. It will also establish Innovation Hubs around these pilots in order to implement a sustainable ecosystem of innovative companies.

    Weeds and pests are two major threats to agriculture. Conventional methods (pesticides, herbicides) harm the environment and are viewed critically by consumers. Better innovative methods of handling these threats are required.

    Scope

    Innovative precision-farming methods require a minimal amount of pesticides and herbicides – or none at all.

    Early warning and risk assessment systems can analyse data on climates, soil, and other factors to gauge the risk of weed and pest infestation.

    Instead of using pesticides, weeds can be eliminated using laser scanners or flame throwers (for example).

    Application Deadline: September 15, 2020
