    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. Current Weed Management in SoybeansSoybean is important for the global economy as it is used as a source for oil and protein (for people and livestock) and as biodiesel.

    1031 Exchanges and Farm Land: 5 Things that Landowners Need to Know

    By Tyler Davis

    Published Aug 2, 2019 

    A 1031 Exchange is a tax-deferred swap program in which farmers and others in the agriculture industry can participate. Farmland, vacant land, and certain agriculture assets are considered real estate assets under the Internal Revenue Code. As much, farmers and others are able to utilize Internal Revenue Code (IRC) Section 1031 in order to defer tax upon the disposition of farmland and acquisition of a “like-kind” piece of property. Section 1031 exchanges, which originally began in the 1920’s, have seen numerous tweaks and changes over the years to get us to the rules that are in place today... #2 – The Tax Cuts & Jobs Act of 2017 changed the rules for Farmers The Tax Cuts & Jobs Act of 2017 (Tax Reform) brought huge changes to the tax structure in the United States and the agriculture industry was not exempt...

    The Advantages of Subsurface Drip Irrigation in Corn Production

    By Mario Petkovski

    Published Sep 9, 2020 

    What is Subsurface Drip Irrigation?Subsurface Drip Irrigation (SDI) is a way of irrigating crops through plastic tubes placed under the soil surface. The tubes have droplet emitters with even spacings, similar to the drip system located on the soil surface. There are different pipe arrangement variations, but the pipes are usually placed at a distance of 38 to 84 and at a depth of 6 to 10 below the soil surface. In the United States, SDI is widely used to irrigate annual crops; elsewhere, the irrigation system is popularly used for orchards and other perennials...

  • United Arab Emirates will invest US$1.5 billion in Dubai Food Park

    To be developed at a cost of US$1.5 billion, first destination in the Middle East dedicated to serving the food sector. DFP seeks to enhance Dubai’s position as a leading regional hub for food trade, import, export and re-export of foodstuffs. Conceptualized at a time when food trade makes up 11 percent of the UAE’s GDP and the food industry is estimated to grow by 70 percent to US$6.3 billion by 2030, the Park will offer all categories of food wholesale services to meet the high demand of the food sector in the UAE and the wider region.

    DFP will span over 48 million square feet within DWSC, the largest wholesale hub in the world occupying 550 million square feet that will take shape over a 10-year period at an estimated cost of US$8.2 billion. The Park’s strategic location at the crossroads of East and West and easy accessibility to Dubai’s advanced logistics facilities distinguish it from other wholesale destinations worldwide.

    FDI inflows to Africa could return to a growth path in 2016, increasing by an average of 6 percent to $55–60 billion

    FDI inflows to Africa could return to a growth path in 2016, increasing by an average of 6 percent to $55–60 billion. This bounce-back is already becoming visible in announced greenfield projects in Africa. In the first quarter of 2016, their value was $29 billion, 25 per cent higher than the same period in 2015. The biggest rise in prospective investments are in North African economies such as Egypt and Morocco, but a more optimistic scenario also prevails more widely, for example in Mozambique, Ethiopia, Rwanda and the United Republic of Tanzania.

    Depressed conditions in oil and gas and in mining continue to weigh significantly on GDP growth and investment across Africa. The rise in FDI inflows, judging by 2015 announcements, will mostly occur in services (electricity, gas and water, construction, and transport primarily), followed by manufacturing industries, such as food and beverages and motor vehicles. MNEs are indeed showing great interest in the African auto industry, with announced greenfield capital expenditure into the industry amounting to $3.1 billion in 2015. Investment into Africa’s auto industry is driven by industrial policies in countries such as Morocco, growing urban consumer markets, improved infrastructure, and favourable trade agreements. Major automotive firms are expected to continue to expand into Africa: PSA Peugeot-Citroen and Renault (France) and Ford (United States) have all announced investments in Morocco; Volkswagen and BMW (Germany) in South Africa; Honda (Japan) in Nigeria; Toyota (Japan) in Kenya; and Nissan (Japan) in Egypt.

    To reduce the vulnerability of Africa to commodity price developments, countries are reviewing policies to support FDI into the manufacturing sector. East Africa has already become more attractive in this sector as a source and investment location, especially in light manufacturing. MNEs are therefore investing across Africa for market-seeking and efficiency-seeking reasons. Proximity can be beneficial, so Bahrain, France, Italy, the United Arab Emirates and the United Kingdom remain prominent as investors; but closeness to major markets in Europe and West Asia is also attracting export-oriented investors from East, South and South-East Asia, which are focusing on locations in North and East Africa such as Ethiopia.

    Liberalization of investment regimes and privatization of State-owned commodity assets should also provide a boost to inflows. In Algeria, for example, Sonatrach SPA, the State-owned oil and gas company, intends to sell its interest in 20 oil and gas fields located in the country. Similarly, in Zambia, the Government is bundling State-owned businesses into a holding company and trying to attract foreign buyers.

    #AgHistory Agriculture is about food, fuel, and fiber, and how these are critical to our society. In particular, this week I will share what I hope is an interesting history of hemp (fiber) and its history here in the United States. Note that our country still imports billions of dollars in hemp fiber each year (https://www.ers.usda.gov/webdocs/publications/41740/15867_ages001e_1_.pdf?v=0), and our U.S. Navy still uses this imported hemp rope, canvas and line. There are several synthetic products that have one or two superior qualities, but no synthetic possesses the 'whole package' - durable, salt water and UV resistant, rot resistant, breaking strength, etc. In fact, Purdue University has identified hemp fiber as potentially one crop that can 'save' American Agriculture as sustainable crop which is comparable to Sudan grass as a cover crop, as well as an alternate to other synthetic fibers. I happen to agree (https://hort.purdue.edu/newcrop/ncnu02/pdf/small.pdf). First, growing fiber for local use was common in England and it should be no surprise that hemp (fiber)was one of the first crops in New England, New York and Pennsylvania. One of the earliest laws of Connecticut required every family to raise half a pound of hemp or flax. The amount grown varied and was largely dependent on the ability of the population to prepare, spin, and weave fiber. In New England, the population was very reliant on cotton imported from the West Indies until the introduction of linen spinning wheel as well as the immigration of Scotch-Irish who were very skilled in linen spinning and the manufacture of linen, in the early 1700's. Lest one think this an easy process, please know that it is very labor intensive. In spite of this, New England farmers were bent on finding a staple that could be sold to a wide market. None the less, the volume of hemp necessary to sell to a wide market was never achieved and the crop failed as a staple as it had to compete with limited arable and cleared land being used to grow grain crops. It was noted in the book 'American Husbandry' (1775) "...it is not for want of good land in certain quantities, nor the climate, that prevents the export of hemp, but the demand for it in Philadelphia..." In 1840 most experts of the time believed that Kentucky and Missouri led hemp production with Indiana, Illinois, and Ohio following. Americans forget how reliant we are as a society on fiber, and this came into glaring focus when the Japanese invasions of the pacific islands during WWII blocked our traditional supply routes for fiber. Every hemp seed available in the U.S. was placed under armed guard in Kentucky as a national security and war effort concern. USDA Hemp for Victory - (https://youtu.be/bIxFhYVv_Gk). Additionally, every farmer should read the Purdue report and consider the impact of this commodity on our society.

    Potential benefits of IIoT in Farming

    The agriculture industry will undoubtedly become more important than ever before in the near future. According to the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization, the world will need to produce 70% more food in 2050 than currently, in order to feed the growing population. Factors such as climate change, limited arable land, water scarcity, labour demand, distress migration, crop failures dues to outbreak in pests and diseases, and other variables will further aggravate this demand for global food production.

    To meet this demand, technology will play an important role, as farmers and agricultural companies are turning to the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). Global farm equipment manufacturers are looking at improving manufacturing efficiencies for their businesses and end users.

    Integrated Energy Solutions, Agricultural Value Chain and Building Resilience to Transform Precarious situations in the Desert part of Africa

    In a collaborative initiative, the African Development Bank (AfDB) and the Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) have joined efforts to operationalize the ‘Desert to Power program’ in eleven countries including Sudan. In his key note remarks at the opening session on 25 July 2017 in Khartoum, Abdul Kamara, Manager of AfDB’s Sudan Country Office said that the objective of the Initiative is to transform precarious situations in the desert part of Africa into development opportunities for local communities. He reiterated that this would be achieved through integrated interventions that combine energy solutions, agricultural value chain and building resilience to climate change that promotes industrialization. On his part, the Resident Representative of FAO emphasized that Sudan has expansive arable lands under the gum belt together with significant renewable energy potentials which need to be tapped.

The water from the rainy season (June-September) is already gone and the farmers reported they don't have enough water to grow their cultivation during the dry season. The United Nations Environmental Program (UNEP) with its implementing partner Practical Action is assessing the needs of a 50-kilometer-long-area of El Kua river, near El Fasher, to invest 7 million dollars in helping farmers to increase their production, keeping the environment, with new technologies and a better management of the livestock and natural resources.

    Technology, Innovation needed to Drive Agricultural Revolution in Africa

    The low levels of mechanization on the continent, as well as poor utilization of modern inputs and other forms of agriculture technology have inhibited growth of agriculture, the Chief Economist said. Statistics indicate that many countries have fewer than 20,000 tractors in use per 100 square kilometres of land. Similarly, there is limited adoption of modern inputs such as fertilizers, improved seeds, and agro-chemicals, with majority of countries using less than 80 kilograms of fertilizer per hectare of arable land.

    Korea shared lessons of how it revamped its agriculture sector using improved technology and innovation, coupled with mechanised farming. As a country which experienced rice shortage of up to 20 percent in the 1950s and early 1960s, and which relied on the United States for food aid in the 1950s, Korea’s new methods of transformation saw it turnaround its agriculture, significantly improving rice production.
