    Grain Drying Technology Using Paddy Husk

    By SUNCUE Grain Dryer

    Published Mar 28, 2019

    Burning paddy husk in a rice husk furnace can be a complete substitute for gas or diesel by burning paddy husk to provide necessary thermal energy. This not only increases the millers/farmer’s income through significantly reducing drying cost and improving grain quality, it is also an important 21st century drying industry breakthrough. Paddy husk had long been considered rural waste, but with this technical innovation it can produce amazing thermal energy. The thermal energy generated by 1 kilogram of paddy husk is about 3,000 to 3,500 kcal. Therefore, only 2...

    How Farmers can cash in big with the Agrilend new digital international crypto-currencies.

    By Robert Morgan

    Published Jun 12, 2018

    For decades, Agricultural businesses have been at the mercy of external as well as internal factors all disregarded by their reliant financial institutions for a multitude of complexities essential for business operations. From export, import, credit, financing, trade, as well as political turmoil or price fluctuations in commodity prices, gold, silver, currency exchanges, interest rates, and bond prices to name a few. A new international encrypted digital crypto-currency is being developed right now by Agrilend, LLC founders to be used exclusively for farmers and will position an initial coin offering in the not so distant future. Farmers who need cash are not usually technologically savvy and are used to the old fashioned ways of having the bank lend, they are now seeking investment but also wanting to remain anonymous, the same as many private investors are seeking anonymity... Most importantly, the privacy security innovations needed for digital currency for agriculture are instrumental for the success of agricultural business to succeed by developing the next level of adaptive complexity in today's information based society...

    Improve Yields with Crop Scouting Apps

    By Cortney Farmer

    Published Mar 30, 2018

    Every successful growing season begins (and often ends) with crop scouting. Accurately aggregating data on crop conditions, weed risks, pest threats and a range of other mission-critical details does far more than offer farmers an up-close look into year-over-year trends; effectively interpreting field and insect intelligence in virtual real-time gives growers the insight needed to implement fast and agile intervention measures to prevent crop loss and ultimately protect profits. Use Mobile Innovation To Optimize Higher Yields And Higher RevenuesFor previous generations of farmers, scouting was a long, arduous, and sometimes highly inaccurate process. Growers, agronomists, and applicators walked their fields, often independently, carefully writing notes and recording vital details to help with both current and future year strategies. While a manual process can offer a wealth of knowledge to help agribusinesses prepare and plan, it's also rife with the potential risk found in any paper trail: data that's overlooked, misread, or lost...

    How Cover Crops Affect Your Fertilizer Strategy

    By Laura Barrera

    Published Jun 29, 2018

    When it comes to cover crops and nutrient management, a lot of the focus is on what cover crops can do for soil fertility. Depending on the species being used, they can prevent leftover nutrients from running off into waterways or even produce some fertilizer for future crop use. But how should farmers adjust their fertilizer practices for their cash crops following cover crops? John Pike, a contract researcher and cover crop specialist for the Zea Maize Foundation and IL Sustainable Agriculture Partnership, and a former Research Agronomist at the University of Illinois at Dixon Springs Research station, says that while there are some nuances that need to be planned for, the basic principles of soil fertility and crop management are much the same. “It’s a matter of fine-tuning the cover crop system to fit the soils, climate and equipment that’s available in the operation that we’re talking about on any given day,” he says... “Great innovations on a farming operation in Iowa might not work so well in southern Illinois and vice versa...

    How the small Farmer can Acquire more Farms using Leverage.

    By Robert Morgan

    Published Jun 13, 2018

    Going Private and Leveraged BuyoutGoing private refers to the transformation of a public corporation into a privately held firm. A leveraged buyout (LBO), financed largely by borrowing, is the acquisition of the stock or assets of a public company by a small group of investors. The buying group may be sponsored by buyout specialists or by investment bankers. A variant of the LBO going-private transaction is the management buyout (MBO) in which a segment of the company is sold to its managers...

    Understanding Agrilend and the MERCOSUR

    By Robert Morgan

    Published Jun 17, 2018

    The MERCOSUR is a powerful dominant force in international global markets and originally began with its Members;Bolivia, Venezuela, Paraguay, Uruguay, Brazil and Argentina as direct Member Countries, in South America, however it is rapidly gaining momentum by its cooperative Associate Member Countries in Central America and its international prowess relies on its ability to cooperate confidential public private initiative agreements with cooperating countries desiring to do corporate business attached with attractive concensions by partnering with MERCOSUR for the sake of obtaining finance, capital, agricultural export or import, natural resources and as an exchange for favor. It is however important to distinguish its Members current state and its Associate Members current state. The MERCOSUR is a consummation of a likely, if not inevitable global economic marriage. It began its path of greater cooperation in International Trade Finance of Agriculture by the signing of the Iguazu Declaration, signed by Presidents Raul Alfonsin of Argentina and Jose Sarney of Brazil on November, 29, 1985... The most important part of the declaration however, was the Agreement that Cooperation, Harmonization, Technological Innovation and Monetary Integration of a number of Agricultural Sectors of the Economy was desirable and therefore the creation or implementation of mechanism to address the Financing of Agriculture is Paramount to its Global Agenda...

    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. As our world becomes more...

    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. Programs are designed to give farmers the tools they need to grow better crops and...
