  • On-farm assessment of the amount and timing of nitrogen fertilizer on ammonia volatilization

    Ammonia (NH3) volatilization is one of the main pathways through which applied N enters the environment undesirably. A seven site-year on-farm field experiment was performed for 3 yr at Ottawa, ON, and 2 yr at Guelph, ON, and Saint-Valentin, QC, Canada. Our objectives were to (i) quantify the flux and the amount of NH3 volatilization as affected by the rate and time of N fertilizer; (ii) assess ...

  • Farming in a Controlled Environment

    There is considerable pressure on today’s farmers. This is because of farming, as a special type of manufacture, largely depends on climate and natural resources. Climate changes have led to unpredictable weather conditions that can endanger farmer’s efforts with frequent hail, frost or drought. With increased global population, that is predicted to reach a number of 9.6 billion by ...

  • Local fertilizer manufacturing: A new look at agro-business

    The American farmer works in a tough business. Aside from the demanding physical and mechanical processes to raise fertile crops from tiny seeds, the farmer must also battle against supply for adequate water, the right seeds, pest and weed control products, and various fertilizers. All these elements have added stress and cost to bring a crop to market, making it less profitable than ever to ...

  • How green was my Vertical Farm?

    By 2050, 80% of the earth’s population will live in cities and 3 billion more people will need to be fed. The simple fact is we are running out of available land to grow enough food to feed them. If we can’t grow our cities outward to find more arable land, the only solution is to grow them upwards. This may change the way we design cities forever.The problem is real and immediate. Even by most ...

  • Triangular transplanting pattern and split nitrogen fertilizer application increase rice yield and nitrogen fertilizer recovery

    Field experiments were conducted to evaluate the effects of improved crop management (OPT) for irrigated rice (Oryza sativa L.) on grain yield and N recovery efficiency in southwestern China. In the OPT treatment, rice seedlings were transplanted in a triangular spatial pattern and the N fertilizer was split, based on the difference between the estimated total N requirement and the soil and ...

  • The Effect of Off-farm Work on the Intensity of Agricultural Production

    Changes in agricultural production methods have been associated with environmental pressure and a loss of natural habitats. This paper explores the extent to which farmer participation in off-farm work (an increasing phenomenon in most developed countries) changes the intensity of agricultural input use focusing, in particular, on fertilizer and crop protection product use. A sample selection ...

  • Farm Practices to Preserve Fruit Quality After Harvesting

    The success of a farmer’s effort in crop production depends largely on the final phase of production, which is often followed by post-harvest losses that can reach up to 50%. Reducing this waste could improve global food production, and increase overall farmer’s profit. Activities that are carried out just before harvesting may have a major influence on final production. Post-harvest ...
