Stocking Density in Aquaponics - Stocking density is a major consideration for anyone starting out in aquaponics. As so many people have asked about the best density for crop production, Dr. Nate Storey has given us an introduction to stocking density and some great advice that applies to starting, maintaining and managing a healthy and productive aquaponics system.

Meeting the food demand of a global population expected to reach 9.1 billion in 2050 and over 10 billion by the end of the century will require major changes in agricultural production systems. Improving cropland management is key to increasing crop productivity without further degrading soil and water resources. At the same time, sustainable agriculture has the potential to deliver cobenefits in the form of reduced GHG emissions and increased carbon sequestration, therefore contributing to…

Antioxidant can be defined as a substance that prolongs the shelf life of food products by protecting them against deterioration caused by oxidation such as fat rancidity and color changes. These substances are also called shelf-life extenders. Complete Report with TOC @ http://www.mrrse.com/antioxidants-market .

Randy Myers, Ph.D., fungicides product manager, discusses how Prosaro #fungicide helps fight scab, reduce micotoxins, and increase yield and grain quality in #wheat.

Regenerative Agriculture Is the Answer to Save Your Health 10/14/14 Grass fed and pastured products are high in demand these days. Unfortunately, we are importing much of these goods from Australia due to USDA processing restrictions that have eliminated the ability to sell local meat products.

One company, Monsanto, by their unethical manipulation of their products and the market, has managed to tar the GMO industry irreparably. To see proper development of genetically modified products that will actually be better for the consumer, not the producer, Monsanto must be dissolved as a corporate entity.

The 1733 slave insurrection on St. John in the Danish West Indies, (now St. John, United States Virgin Islands) started on November 23, 1733 when African slaves from Akwamu revolted against the owners and managers of the island’s plantations. The slave rebellion was one of the earliest and longest slave revolts in the Americas. The Akwamu slaves captured the fort in Coral Bay and took control of most of the island, intending to resume crop production under their own control and use other…

Balancing productivity, profitability, and environmental health is a key challenge for agricultural sustainability. Most crop production systems in the United States are characterized by low species and management diversity, high use of fossil energy and agrichemicals, and large negative impacts on the environment. We hypothesized that cropping system diversification would promote ecosystem services that would supplement, and eventually displace, synthetic external inputs used to maintain…
