    Diversity in Agriculture: How Diverse & Inclusive is the Industry?:

    By AgCareers.com Team

    Published Jun 14, 2018

    Employers often allocate resources to recruiting diverse talent and are quick to tell candidates how welcoming of a work environment they'll find. Job seekers want to know they are going to work for an organization that welcomes diversity in its most traditional sense, as well as a broader scope that accounts for diversity of thought and experiences... In response, we conducted a survey to capture employer's efforts to address diversity within their organizations. While there's a lot of talk about diversity in agriculture, we wanted data to back up the statement that the industry generally embraces and supports diversity in the workplace... No longer is there a typical employee in agriculture; rather we've outgrown stereotypes about the demographics of our industry...

    5 reasons to choose chitosan oligosaccharide in organic agriculture

    By Darren Chan

    Published Jan 22, 2019

    In the application of agricultural production, chitosan oligosaccharides not only make crops grow better and robust, but also has obvious effects in stress resistance and pest resistance. Numerous studies have shown that chitosan oligosaccharides can induce broad-spectrum resistance, enhance the plant’s own defense ability, inhibit the growth of a variety of plant pathogenic microorganisms, and it is non-toxic and can be microbial degradation, and will not pollute the environment. This makes it an important role in agricultural production as a new type of green production...

    Key Agriculture Tax Planning Strategies for Year End 2019 – Part 1

    By Tyler Davis

    Published Nov 1, 2019

    This is the first of a two-part series focusing on tax savings, planning opportunities, and other tax considerations for farmers and agriculture businesses for year-end 2019. Part I focuses on when a farming taxpayer has higher than expected earnings in 2019 while Part II, which was published on AgFuse. com in early December 2019, focuses on tax planning opportunities when a farmer has lower than expected current year performance. When considering tax planning opportunities for year-end 2019, taxpayers should first take a step back and analyze their current year performance. Were your current year earnings higher than expected, or were they lower than expected? How did your crop perform this year relative to prior years? Did you have any unexpected or non-recurring gains or losses during the year? These are all great questions to be asking your CPA as you move into these critical final two months of 2019...

    Tax Agriculture Tax Planning Strategies for Year End 2019 – Part 2

    By Tyler Davis

    Published Dec 5, 2019

    This is the second of a two-part series focusing on tax savings, planning opportunities, and other tax considerations for year-end 2019. Part I, published on AgFuse in November of 2019, focused on planning opportunities for farmers with higher than expected earnings in 2019 while Part II focuses on tax planning opportunities for farmers with lower than expected current year performance. Farmers tend to think that tax planning opportunities are only available in high-income years or when they close on a big transaction (selling your property, selling a large amount of stock for a capital gain, etc). However, just as tax planning is essential in those situations, it is also critical to consider tax planning strategies during a down year. One of the major goals in this scenario is to avoid a tax loss for the year because the new loss rules in effect for farmers are much different than they were before the passage of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017...

    Why Mycorrhiza is important in Agriculture

    By Darren Chan

    Published Jul 12, 2019

    There is no doubt that mycorrhizae play the important role in plant growth... Their symbiotic relationship with plants helps them access extra water and nutrients source in soil. How does it workMycorrhizal spores germinate when in contact with plant roots and form filaments (hyphae), which create a symbiotic relationship increasing the plants ability to uptake fixed nutrients and water, improving plant performance. Mycorrhizal fungi increase the surface absorbing area of roots 100 to a 1,000 times, thereby greatly improving the ability of the plant to access soil resources. Mycorrhizal fungi increase nutrient uptake not only by increasing the surface absorbing area of the roots, but also release powerful enzymes into the soil that dissolve hard-to-capture nutrients, such as organic nitrogen, phosphorus, iron and other “tightly bound” soil nutrients...

    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.

    Call for solutions: Food Solutions Challenge - Solutions that impact Female Smallholder Farmers Worldwide

    The Food Solutions Challenge is a local event series and case competition that challenges today’s brightest minds to find solutions to pressing issues in food and agriculture.

    Inspired by the United Nations Sustainable Development target 2.3, which states: “By 2030, [we aim to] double the agricultural productivity and incomes of small-scale food producers, particularly women…”, this year’s challenge asks: How might we better enable female smallholder farmers to have access to the resources, agricultural know-how, and markets that will improve their livelihoods?

    Supporting female smallholder farmers leads to numerous positive social impacts. Increased agricultural productivity leads to reduced hunger, increased incomes lead to better health and education for farmer’s families, and educating women is one of the best ways that we can positively impact climate change.
