    What’s difference between early blight and late blight?

    By Darren Chan

    Published Jul 6, 2018 

    Early blight and late blight are important diseases on solanaceous vegetables.

    Hydroponics 101: A Basic Guide to Start Soilless Cultivation

    By Miriam Pitzalis

    Updated Aug 20, 2020 

    This practice has been established for the large-scale production of fresh vegetables and ornamental plants, especially in the countries of Northern Europe, with the main purposes of:- Increasing production- Optimizing acreage - Reducing working times- Reducing the need for water and fertilizers - Optimizing climatic conditionsThe continuous climate changes, the increasing interest in environmental impacts, and the availability of cheap facilities and simple technologies all lead to an increased use of soilless cultivation in commercial applications. When talking about soilless crops, we’re referring to two types of systems:- Real hydroponics, without substrate: the root system of a plant is directly in contact with the water and the nutrient solution (floating system, nutrient film technique, aeroponics)- Hydroponics with substrate: the plant grows on inert, organic materials, or a mixture between them (cultivation bags, slabs, pots or bins)In these systems, fertigation feeds the plants and involves the use of water-soluble fertilizers. In the most sophisticated and technological systems, the nutrient solution is recycled continuously, thus ensuring maximum efficiency of the water resources used (closed cycle)... The floating system is generally suitable for the cultivation of leafy vegetables... It is a simple system, as the realization is rather cheap, and the short crop cycle of leafy vegetables does not require the constant reintegration of the nutrient solution...

    1-Methylcyclopropene(1-MCP) Ethylene Inhibitors

    By Darren Chan

    Updated May 31 

    It is widely used in the preservation of fruits, vegetables, and flowers... Extend the shelf life of fruits, vegetables, and flowers by more than 50~200%. Fumigation treatment for fruits, vegetables, and flowers 1 to 14 days after picking can double the original freshness period... After strict inspection by the US Environmental Protection Agency, no residues can be detected for fruits, vegetables, and flowers after 1-MCP treatment, so it is absolutely safe for humans, animals, vegetables, flowers, fungi and the environment. The fruits, vegetables, and flowers treated with 1-MCP are not only effective; they also have the advantages of non-toxic, harmless, low-volume, high-efficiency, and no pollution to the environment...

    cover cropping with triticale ,hairy vetch and cow peas late fall?

    By Brady Shortell

    Published Oct 18, 2020 

    Looking at planting triticale with hairy vetch and cow peas for a cover crop next year for a cash crop or corn to be planted late May 2021 using a roller crimper to terminate the cover crop before plant. It’s October 18th, I won’t be able to plant until the 22nd. Night time temps have fluctuated from mid 30s to high 20s no consistency yet. Some nights stay closer to 40. Highs are in the 70s and 80s. Am I too late for any of my covers? Any suggestions on planting rates? Will triticale terminate properly if I follow the method used for Rye, waiting until the entire field is dropping pollen?

  • Nanotechnology in agriculture, livestock and aquaculture in China. A review

    Authors: Shiwen Huang, Ling Wang, Lianmeng Liu, Yuxuan Hou and Lu Li

    Publisher: ResearchGate.

    Abstract

    Nanoscience emerged in the late 1980s and is developed and applied in China since the middle of the 1990s. Although nanotechnologies have been less developed in agronomy than other disciplines, due to less investment, nanotechnologies have the potential to improve agricultural production. Here, we review more than 200 reports involving nanoscience in agriculture, livestock, and aquaculture. The major points are as follows: (1) nanotechnologies used for seeds and water improved plant germination, growth, yield, and quality. (2) Nanotechnologies could increase the storage period for vegetables and fruits. (3) For livestock and poultry breeding, nanotechnologies improved animals immunity, oxidation resistance, and production and decreased antibiotic use and manure odor. For instance, the average daily gain of pig increased by 9.9-15.3 %, the ratio of feedstuff to weight decreased by 7.5-10.3 %, and the diarrhea rate decreased by 55.6-66.7 %. (4) Nanotechnologies for water disinfection in fishpond increased water quality and increased yields and survivals of fish and prawn. (5) Nanotechnologies for pesticides increased pesticide performance threefold and reduced cost by 50 %. (6) Nano urea increased the agronomic efficiency of nitrogen fertilization by 44.5 % and the grain yield by 10.2 %, versus normal urea. (7) Nanotechnologies are widely used for rapid detection and diagnosis, notably for clinical examination, food safety testing, and animal epidemic surveillance. (8) Nanotechnologies may also have adverse effects that are so far not well known.

    National Speakers to Present at the 2019 SC AgriBiz ExpoTwo inspiring speakers will kick off the SC AgriBiz & Farm Expo this year. American Farm Bureau Federation President Zippy Duvall and award-winning author and speaker Michele Payn will both offer enlightening and inspiring presentations during the opening of the seventh annual expo. The SC AgriBiz & Farm Expo will be held on Jan. 23 and 24 at the Florence Center in Florence, S.C. Starting at 8 a.m. on Wednesday, Duvall will present during the Farmer Appreciation Breakfast compliments of AgFirst Farm Credit Banks. He will discuss the Farm Bill and other agricultural issues. President of the AFBF since January 2016, Duvall is a poultry, cattle, and hay producer from Greene County, Georgia. He was first elected president of the American Farm Bureau Federation in January 2016 after serving for nine years as president of the Georgia Farm Bureau. He was re-elected for a second term in January 2018.A Farm Bureau member since 1977, Duvall has held numerous Farm Bureau leadership positions at the state and county levels. As AFBF President, he has worked to unify agriculture and grow Farm Bureau's influence in our nation's capital. He and Agriculture Secretary, Sonny Perdue are good friends and they work together to promote and strengthen agriculture. In 2017, President Donald Trump appointed Duvall to the White House Advisory Committee for Trade Policy and Negotiations. Also in 2017, he was honored by the National 4-H Council as a Founding Luminary.Following Duvall’s presentation Michele Payn will present Celebrating Agriculture, a high-energy keynote focused on celebrating the people, promise, and passion in agriculture. She will discuss the importance of people working together in farming, knowing your own legacy to get you through tough times and speaking the same language through hot buttons (passion).As principal of Cause Matters Corp., Payn connects the people and science of food and farming. She is known for being a community catalyst, a passionate advocate for global agriculture - and antagonizing people into action. She has worked with farmers in more than 25 countries, raised over $5 million in sponsorships for the National FFA Foundation and founded AgChat and FoodChat on Twitter. She is the author of two books, No More Food Fights! and Food Truths from Farm to Table, an IPPY bronze medal winner and Amazon #1 best seller. Duvall and Payn’s national acclaim and expertise match the top quality of the presenters throughout the SC AgriBiz & Farm Expo. Established to serve as an umbrella event for all aspects of agriculture and agribusiness, the expo offers a robust schedule of training and networking opportunities. With free admission and a diverse array of offerings there will be something for everyone, said Expo Executive Director Jody Martin.“Education is a primary goal of the SC AgriBiz & Farm Expo.

    Agricool raises 28M USD to make urban farming a reality

    In 2030, 20% of products consumed worldwide will come from urban farming (compared to 5% today). In the past 3 years, Agricool’s teams have developed a technology to grow local, healthy fruits and vegetables more productively and within small and controlled spaces, known as “Cooltainers” (recycled shipping containers transformed into urban farms). Thanks to this new funding round, Agricool will be able to confirm its role in the development of this new type of agriculture, while positioning itself as a key player in the segment of vertical farming in France and worldwide. Agricool plans to multiply by a hundred its production by 2021, in Paris first, then internationally starting with Dubai, where a container has already been installed for several months in The Sustainable City.
