    By Ammar Alshami

    Published 8 months ago

    Blockchain and Supply of fruits & vegetablesFruits and vegetables are one of the integral ingredients in a common day food. With its increase in demand and the subsequent challenge of fruit spoilage and loss, it's really vital to keep an eye on the future of the supply and demand for fruit and vegetables. For making up the equilibrium between the supply and demand of fruit and vegetable, limiting the fruit from spoilage and gaining most out of this business there are some techniques that can be followed in the future... Proper management of data is vital for the preservation of fruit and vegetables. Use of technology like bar code scanner and modern warehouse software can also facilitate in getting an idea about the current state and quantity of fruit and vegetables...

    Secrets you don't know about seaweed fertilizer

    By Darren Chan

    Published 3 months ago

    Seaweed fertilizer is a biological fertilizer produced by scientific processing of marine plant seaweed as the main raw material. The main component is the natural biological active material extracted from seaweed. Most seaweed can grow to lengths of over 50 meters. Trace elements found in organic seaweed fertilizers include magnesium, potassium, zinc, iron and nitrogen—all of which are beneficial to plants... So, please be patient or you can choose to mix seaweed fertilizer with other suitable fertilizers...

    Savin' you Soybeans!

    By Rusty Kordick

    Published 5 months ago

    Soybeans are one of the largest commodities in the US, which makes farming them a lucrative career choice in the ag industry. But soybean farming doesn’t come without its own challenges. Tariffs on Chinese trade have destabilized the soybean markets, pigweed infestations are spreading at an alarming rate across the US, and recent flooding in parts of the Midwest have spelled disaster for many farmers. In order to responsibly handle these external challenges, many farmers look to innovate their daily practices to increase their yield while reducing costs. The majority of soybean farmers nowadays opt to use an air-seeder for planting...

    Chitosan & mycorrhiza complement each other for soil healthy

    By Darren Chan

    Published 7 months ago

    Researchers are studying the effects of chitosan on mycorrhiza. Good effects on mycorrhizal and root systems of related plants can be observed, leading to healthier crops growth and fruiting. The enzyme-resistant enzymes (chitinase) produced by plants are particularly effective against the phytopathogenic fungi cell wall, but they don’t have such function against the cell wall of mycorrhiza. It would be no harmful increase in the mycorrhiza, chitinase after observing the soil chitosan-treated. The increasing in lignification of plant cell walls after treatment with chitosan can defend the mycorrhizal fungi of arbuscular or ectodermal layers, because both of them were contacting the side roots of plants near the root crown, meanwhile the rhizomes are completed and form the root hairs...

  • EU-funded scientists developed adaptable ground and aerial robots that can transform farming

    Development of precision farming techniques is a very active area of research, so the goal of Flourish was to bridge the gap between the current and desired capabilities of agricultural robots. The project consortium developed an autonomous farming system where drones and robots work together to monitor the crop and precisely remove weeds. The newly developed robotic system combines the aerial survey capabilities of a small autonomous multi-copter unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) with a multi-purpose unmanned ground vehicle (UGV).

    View Treely's Slade Gleaton's article for SC Tree Farm News, July 2017 edition: "A Changing Future for Small Private Timberland Owners in South Carolina"The forest products industry in South Carolina has come a long way since England laid claim to the territory in the 17th century. Over the years, large timberland holdings have been responsible for sustaining the forest products economy through naval stores, lumber, and paper. Today the forest products industry contributes over $21 billion to the South Carolina economy and continues to grow stronger each year. As we look forward, one of the challenges the industry faces in South Carolina is the growing fragmentation of timberland ownership. Today, forested timberlands cover approximately two thirds of the state (over 12 million acres). Nearly 75% of this total is owned by non-industrial, private landowners. When you break this down further and look at the family owned timberland component, there are nearly 7 million acres across the State, of which over 3 million acres are composed of parcels of 50 acres or less. That’s a lot of acreage and tonnage spread across a growing segment of small forest landowners. Why is this happening? A recent study from Clemson University points to death (and subsequent sale or inheritance of property), urbanization, rising incomes and regulatory uncertainty as the main reasons for larger timber tracts being split into smaller parcels. “Across the South, where poverty and minority land ownership is prevalent, small landowners continue to struggle and large tracts continue to be sub-divided by heirs due to death, taxes and poor estate planning,” says Sam Cook, Executive Director of Forest Assets with the Natural Resources Foundation at NC State University, and recent recipient of the Henry Hardtner Award, which recognizes contributions to forest stewardship and sustainable forest management on non-industrial private lands. These smaller parcels are sometimes taken out of timber production or are not managed as effectively as they were in the past. In addition, the smaller landowner is often faced with the difficulty of selling timber because the smaller volumes are often too costly to harvest. “I own around 20 acres and when I decided to sell my timber, it was very difficult to find a buyer who was interested in harvesting my small acreage,” shares Joe Wheeler, a landowner in Chesterfield County. From the buyer perspective, it boils down to efficiency and profit margin. “Today’s loggers have more efficient and expensive equipment. Moving equipment between smaller tracts leads to a loss in productivity that puts pressure on already thin profit margins,” adds Jeff Tant with White Wood, Inc. “Even though there is no clear path to figuring out small tracts, one day a solution will be found and this will be a real plus to the industry.” One possible solution to smaller acreage parcels may be found online.
