    How Brazilian Big Agriculture is Destroying the Brazilian Amazon

    By Maria Dampman

    Published 2 years, 7 months ago

    Farmers, loggers and cattle ranchers cleared forest to create grazing land as well as to grow highly profitable crops like soy... With the end of deforestation and the planting of millions of trees in the decimated areas, it looked like everyone’s work was done and now the protestors could all move on to saving a different cause... Whenever the government found illegally deforested lands, landowners were fined and required to plant trees and shrubbery to return the land back to forest... Leaves from the trees used that fell in streams or standing water made these areas inhospitable for mosquito breeding. Now that the trees are gone and there is growth of only low lying vegetation, the mosquitoes have nearly unlimited areas to breed...

    What The Intelligent Investor Can Teach Us About Farming

    The Intelligent Investor, a book by Benjamin Graham, is widely considered to be the best book on value investing ever written. The book (and it's author) had a profound effect on the way people think about investing. Graham was extremely influential to many titans in the world of investing... Are you improving your infrastructure with this year in mind or the next ten? Have you designed your new shop so that a potentially bigger combine will fit into it in ten years? It can take a loooong time for soil health to improve via cover crops and increased biological activity. Do you have the mindset and patience to reap the benefits of cropping system improvements that may cost a little more on the front end but pay massive dividends over the long term? As the old Chinese proverb says, The best time to plant a tree was twenty years ago...

    Nuisance Lawsuits are Taking a Bite Out of Big Pork

Here, the feces sit until the lagoons get too full, and then the excrement is sprayed over fields as a form of fertilizer where crops used in the feeding of the pigs is grown... Will a neighbor be able to bring a successful suit against a small farmer who has a rooster that creates a noise nuisance at 5:30 am? What about the local farmer who has to spray his crops periodically to prevent pests and the ruin of his yield but irritates his organic-produce-loving-vegan neighbor? Now that the RTF statutes no longer seem to hold water, will the courts fill up with nuisance suits? We are going to have to wait and see, but many do not think this is not going to create problems for the average farmer... In an article published by the Wall Street Journal in May, Chief Executive, Ken Sullivan, said that if the lawsuits succeed, “we will have to revisit whether we can continue doing business in North Carolina...

    When is it Too Late to Seed Cover Crops?

    By Laura Barrera

    Published 9 months ago

    And if you plan on seeding your cover crops after your crops are off, you have the added challenge of trying to get them seeded in a timely manner... It leads to the question: Is it ever too late to seed cover crops?The short answer: It depends... The General Manager of cover crop seed company Future Generation Ag explains that your weather conditions, location, the number of acres you have, the species of cash crop you’re coming from and going to, as well as equipment, all play a role in determining whether it’s too late to get your cover crops seeded... “It’s never too late to plant cover crops, but if you wanted the benefit in the fall and early winter, then it’s too late,” he says...

    Measuring Canopy Structure and Condition Using Multi-Spectral UAS Imagery in a Horticultural Environment

    Authors: Yu-Hsuan Tu, Kasper Johansen, Stuart Phinn and Andrew Robson

    Journal: Remote Sens. 2019, 11(3), 269

    Publisher: MDPI

    Tree condition, pruning and orchard management practices within intensive horticultural tree crop systems can be determined via measurements of tree structure. Multi-spectral imagery acquired from an unmanned aerial system (UAS) has been demonstrated as an accurate and efficient platform for measuring various tree structural attributes, but research in complex horticultural environments has been limited. This research established a methodology for accurately estimating tree crown height, extent, plant projective cover (PPC) and condition of avocado tree crops, from a UAS platform. Individual tree crowns were delineated using object-based image analysis. In comparison to field measured canopy heights, an image-derived canopy height model provided a coefficient of determination (R2) of 0.65 and relative root mean squared error of 6%. Tree crown length perpendicular to the hedgerow was accurately mapped. PPC was measured using spectral and textural image information and produced an R2 value of 0.62 against field data. A random forest classifier was applied to assign tree condition into four categories in accordance with industry standards, producing out-of-bag accuracies > 96%. Our results demonstrate the potential of UAS-based mapping for the provision of information to support the horticulture industry and facilitate orchard-based assessment and management

    "Researchers have looked into the practice of alley cropping, planting long-term tree crops alongside short-term cash crops, for sustainability. Alley cropping is a type of agroforestry, which is the practice of combining crops and trees into one farming system. The dual income from the land can bring greater economic security to farmers."

    It could possibly be a magnesium deficiency. I've seen similar symptoms in other orchard crops and traced it back to that. However, the best way to accurately diagnose is with both soil and tissue tests. Also, look for any patterns you see such as the number of trees affected and the location of trees showing symptoms.

    I have posted a couple of Facebook post with some of the rice crop results in Indonesia that used GroAloe.  Check them out.  Our own Dr. Moning has been overseeing the proper use of GroAloe on rice and other crops.  Looks like it is turning out to be another great rice crop season.  I hate to sound like a broken record, but it works on all cereal crops, fruit trees, herbs, tomatoes.  We are still in the process of expanding GroAloe's potential use.  Trust me the stuff works!!  This not just another new fangled product.  GroAloe is going to change farming as we know it.

    Posted By Christopher Keen

    GroAloe is not a phytosanitary product  but, when we treated infected Cocoa trees with Vascular Dieback Disease VSD and Black Pod Rot, we found that not only did the trees treated with GroAloe were able to fight off the disease but it also repelled the moth that spreads the bacteria to the trees.
    The result were that trees treated with GroAloe showed signs of recovery in three days and in 22 days the trees began to produce flower buds and leafs.  These trees have not produced in 5 years or have had limited production, now they produce more than when they were healthy.
    The chemical companies in involved in the initial Cocoa tree test walked away because they had little or no effect on the trees.

    A year after treatment the Cocoa trees which produce two crop cycles are now continuously producing cocoa pods.  We however recommend at least a minimum of continuous treatment to guarantee effectiveness against the bacteria or fungus due to the fact that the vector insect causing the plague is still present. 

    GroAloe does not kill insects.  We think that natural properties in our product makes it undesirable for insects.  Because you do not spray GroAloe during the flowering cycle of the plant or tree due to flower loss, our product will not interfere with bee pollination.  Though we are still in the research process to understand how this is accomplished.

    We truly believe that GroAloe will radically change farming as we know it, and improve the quality and quantity of crops.

    If you have any questions regarding our product, I will be more than happy to send you information regarding our product and tests results.
