  • How Feasible is Organic Corn?

    By Vijayalaxmi Kinhal

    Published Aug 14, 2020 

    Organic corn is both economically viable and technically feasible. Even though organic corn yield is 32% lesser, the prices are double that of conventional corn, guaranteeing attractive returns on investment (ROI) to growers. Moreover, there is growing technical information available to advise organic corn production. Growing Demand for Organic CornThe demand for organic corn is expected to grow globally at a CAGR of 1. 9% and amount to 1170 million USD by 2026...

    Cover Crop Corner: Part 2 Cover Crop Economics: Long-term gains through holistic improvements

    By Feed the Soil, Feed the World

    Published Oct 13, 2021 

    In part two of this two-part series on the economics of cover crops, we explore how a holistic approach to taking care of resources comes with long-term gains. By GO SEEDThere are no “quick fixes” when it comes to the health of soils, the benefits take more than overnight to show up. While it takes time and deliberate care to learn how to enhance resources holistically within your own system, the general principles are relatively simple and can be significant cost savings. “Soil is the natural capital of the land,” explains Dr Shannon Cappellazzi, GO Seed Director of Research. “By making the investment in soil health, not only are you making an impact on all of the downstream ecosystem services that are related to soil functions, you are also regenerating the land for continued agricultural production...

    Flowering phenology ( Reproductive physiology ) of Drumstick

    FLOWERING IN MORINGA OLEIFERA

    Interaction between many factors like genetic , environment , physiological , nutritional , hormonal and cultural practices determine earliness and abundance of flowers & yield of pods in Moringa oleifera

    1.Genetic - ODC cultivar originated in Tamil Nadu acquired genes responsible for earliness of flowers in about 6-8 months from sowing seeds .

    2.Environment - warm temperature between 28 -40 degree Celsius

    3.Physiological - The photosynthate produced in leaves are translocated in sufficient quantity to sink where flower bud is formed ( Axil ) .Pruning allows more branches and more photosynthesis .

    4.Nutrient - Nitrogen is needed in early stage of growth to produce a good canopy spread .Potassium nitrate is found to induce flowering in Moringa .

    5.Hormones - Indole Acetic acid ( IAA) produced naturally in plants and cytokinin like substances vis a vis inhibition of Gibberellin hormone in plant causes hormonal imbalance that is responsible of flower induction

    6.Cultural - Weed free cultivation , use of black mulching sheet ( reduce nitrogen loss and increase soil temperature by 1-2 degree Celsius ) , pre flowering stress for 15 days , spray of panchagavya rich in amino acids , hormones @3 % conc./ Spray of uniconozole .

    Use of Space Technology in the agriculture sector in India

    The Ministry of Agriculture and Farmers Welfare, has been pro-active in using the space technology in agricultural sector. The Ministry, since early 80s has been funding various projects, under which Indian Space Research Organisation developed methodologies for Crop Production Forecasting. The Department of Agriculture, Cooperation and Farmers Welfare established a Centre, called Mahalanobis National Crop Forecast Centre, in 2012, for operationalisation of the space technology developed in the Indian Space Research Organization, for crop production forecasting. The Department has another centre called Soil and Land Use Survey of India, which uses satellite data for soil resources mapping. Currently, the Department is using space technology for its various programmes/ areas, such as, Forecasting Agricultural Output using Space, Agro-meteorology and Land-based Observations (FASAL) project, Coordinated programame on Horticulture Assessment and Management using geoiNformatics (CHAMAN) project, National Agricultural Drought Assessment and Monitoring System (NADAMS), Rice-Fallow Area Mapping and intensification, geo tagging of infrastructure and assets created under Rashtriya Krishi Vikas Yojana, and Crop Insurance.
