  • Root vegetables harvest and farm development

    Root vegetables season The autumn start is the time when vegetable producers have a lot of work. A collection of vegetables begins. Tension and nerves are often associated with it. All because the priority for farmers is to collect crops for which they worked hard all year round. It is important to make a good choice and select the machines suitable to your needs and four farm ...

  • Underwater Unmanned Aerial Vehicle-Future of Marine Fisheries

    First of all, there is huge market space for underwater drone. In terms of Fisheries and aquaculture, China's aquaculture area is 8465,000 hectares, of which 27.38% is mariculture area and 72.62% is freshwater aquaculture area. There are 32,000 aquaculture farms in China, covering an area of 10 million hectares. It is necessary to check the temperature, salinity, PH value, dissolved oxygen of ...

  • 3 Ways to get rid of birds on golf courses

    Birds – Canadian Geese especially – can be a nuisance on the golf course. Canadian Geese get in the way of golfing and are known to be aggressive and territorial, especially when they are nesting. They cause physical damages on the golf course and their droppings can spread bacteria like E. coli and listeria to other animals or golfers. See what you can do to help get rid of birds on ...

  • High Technology that Revolutionized Farming

    How are we going to feed the growing population by 2050? How we are going to double our food supply and how will the farming be sustainable? All the answers involve farm technology. Farm technology creates the ability to grow plants that are disease resistant, to use the equipment that can target individual crops and strengthen the rice that can survive drought and flooding and literally save ...

  • Only capitalism can save the planet

    It’s not “sustainable” business when a company takes a long view and targets problems that aren’t going away — it’s smart business. To say the world has changed a lot in the last century is a huge understatement. Industrial, medical and social progress has resulted in unprecedented growth in the world’s population and economy, and ...

  • Comparing RGB-based vegetation indices with NDVI for agricultural drone imagery

    Abstract Agribotix conducted a post hoc test of two vegetation indices, VARI and TGI, that used only the three visible-band signals from an unmodified CMOS camera. The results were compared to NDVI, which is generally considered to be a reliable measure of field health and the underlying RGB image. While the results are somewhat encouraging in limited cases, it is clear that neither VARI nor ...

  • A test of agricultural labour market efficiency in the Gezira scheme, Sudan: a production function approach

    This study is concerned with testing the efficiency of the rural labour market in the Gezira scheme. One hundred and fifty respondents were randomly selected through a field survey during the 2003?2004 season. A Cobb-Douglas production function was fitted to the data. The results indicated that labour markets in Gezira do not behave as predicted by the neoclassical theory. Labour allocations are ...

  • Bt-cotton and secondary pests

    Bt-cotton seed has been effective to control the damage of bollworm in Chinese cotton production since 1999, reducing the need for pesticides and increasing incomes of Chinese farmers. Field data collected in 2004 indicates that these benefits have been eroded by increasing the use of pesticides aimed to control secondary pests. The combination of Bt-cotton seed and other forms of biological pest ...

  • Modernisation in agriculture: what makes a farmer adopt an innovation?

    This paper addresses the question of which factors influence a farmer in deciding to adopt an innovation. We differentiate between innovations that are already widely diffused in the sector, innovations that are early in their process of diffusion, and innovations that are entirely new to the farmer's sector. We use an ordered probit approach to relate adoption behaviour to variables that capture ...

  • Hedonic analysis of farmland prices: the case of Aragon

    A hedonic approach is used to study farmland prices in Aragon (Spain). Data over 450 transactions in 33 shires, in 2001 and 2002 are analysed. The marginal values for irrigated vs. non-irrigated land, the productive orientation and the differentiation of production through a Designation of Origin (D.O.) are used as explanatory variables. Socio-economic variables are also included. A Box-Cox ...

  • Removal of acid dyes from aqueous solutions using orange peel as a sorbent material

    An agricultural by-product waste, orange peel, was tested for the removal of four acid dyes from aqueous solutions in batch conditions. As results obtained, kinetics of dyes sorption was time of contact, initial dyes concentration and dyes type dependent. The pseudo second-order reaction rate model adequately described the kinetics of dyes sorption with high correlation coefficients. A. Langmuir ...

  • Graphic tools for data representation in integrated analysis of farming systems

    This paper provides an overview of graphic tools that are currently used for representing integrated analysis of farming systems and environmental systems. The overview includes also an appraisal of the various methods in terms of pros and cons. Some key issues concerning how to implement a sound integrated graphical representation are also discussed. We believe that the usefulness of sound ...

  • The effects of environment and technology on agricultural export

    The impact of environmental policy on international trade has received a great deal of attention over the decades. Theory predicts that the relative level of a country's environmental policy, technology, and factor endowments will jointly determine international trade and specialisation. This study develops alternative empirical models of export shares to evaluate the effects of technology and ...

  • Competitiveness and environmental policies for agriculture: testing the Porter hypothesis

    Porter hypothesis suggests tougher environmental regulations could spur technological growth, leading to an increase in productivity of market outputs, simultaneously providing greater environmental protection. This study tests the Porter hypothesis in US agriculture using state level data from 1973 through 1996. Luenberger productivity indexes, which are dual to the profit function and do not ...

  • Water efficiency of agricultural production in China: regional comparison from 1999 to 2002

    We apply stochastic frontier analysis (SFA) techniques to a provincial level data set to measure technical and water efficiency in China's agricultural production from 1999 to 2002. The determinants of the efficiencies are identified together with the physical determinant structure of the irrigation factor, which refers to the water use per irrigated land area. The study yields the following ...

  • Human excreta: a resource or a taboo? Assessing the socio-cultural barriers, acceptability, and reuse of human excreta as a resource in Kakul Village District Abbottabad, Northwestern Pakistan

    Sustainable reuse of human excreta in socially and religiously conservative societies is extremely difficult. People's perceptions and acceptability regarding the reuse of human excreta is mainly linked to their culture. In addition, certain societies regard the cultural and social barriers more than the religious barriers. The aim of this study is to understand the perceptions of people about ...
