Guest Editorial: From Chub to Trout: Farming for Drinking Water in the Keystone State | Editorial Sun, 19 Jun 2022 22:00:00 +0000

Growing up on a 200 acre registered Angus cattle farm in Huntingdon County, I was lucky enough to fish Emma Creek, a small tributary that runs through our farm and into the Juniata River. When I went fishing with my grandparents, our catches weren’t very impressive. Most of the time we caught brook chub – a fish that is an indicator of poor water quality. A generation later, when I fish Emma’s Creek with my 3-year-old daughter, Quinn, (and soon-to-be twins, Connor and Sully), we catch a variety of trout (rainbow and brook) as well only sunglasses. How did it happen?

Over three decades, our farm has implemented over 30 conservation practices which are regularly maintained and monitored. These practices have not only improved fish diversity, but they also add value to our smallholding by increasing the efficiency of our farm, improving the health of our livestock and reducing flooding during heavy rains.

But these practices are not cheap. Projects such as building a heavy-use livestock area, installing a fence along a creek, and planting creekside pads can come with price tags at six. figures. With most Keystone State farmers operating on extremely thin margins, implementing these field conservation practices on their own is often prohibitively expensive. Indeed, the future of agriculture in Pennsylvania is uncertain given the immense financial pressures of running a farm, especially on the next generation of farmers.

This challenge is why Pennsylvania is so desperate to pass the Clean Streams Fund (CSF). This act includes $125 million to provide financial assistance directly to farmers or landowners to implement conservation practices on their land. And these practices don’t just help the farmer. Adopting the CSF would provide a desperately needed boost to local economies affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, injecting millions of dollars into local contractors and businesses such as construction companies, tree nurseries and plant businesses. environmental engineering.

But perhaps the most critical impact of the CSF is how it will help protect and restore one of Pennsylvania’s most vital resources – our local rivers and streams. A constant from generation to generation, farmers are continually placed in a position to sell their produce at cost, feeding the nation, while facing directives to improve local water quality. Farmers want to do this work, but they cannot do it alone. With the adoption and funding of the CSF, farmers can lead the way in reducing pollution entering Keystone State waterways.

In the years to come, I hope to take responsibility for our family farm. I do not take this responsibility lightly. While I want to carry on the legacy of stewarding our land for sustainability, I know I’m not the only farmer of my generation who worries about financial pressures. It is critical that our elected officials in Harrisburg take action and invest in agriculture and the families that feed our Commonwealth, and especially the next generation of Pennsylvania farmers.

If they do this by adopting the Clean Streams Fund, we will reap the full harvest. We will boost one of Pennsylvania’s key industries, boost the economy across the Commonwealth, and clean up our rivers and streams. And if we play our cards right, farmers across the Keystone State can take their kids and grandkids fishing the local waterways and marvel at what happens on the other end of the line.

Agriculture: Deadline approaches for registration of pesticide use Sat, 18 Jun 2022 06:02:06 +0000

And with next week the June 22 deadline for those who use pesticides to register their details with Defra, Sarah Cowie, NFU Scotland’s environmental resources policy manager, outlined the actions needed to meet the new requirements.

She said the Official Control (Plant Protection Products) Regulations 2020 were already in force and required all agricultural businesses using pesticides to register their details by next week’s deadline on the Defra website.

“If you use pesticides and adjuvants on your farm, you are legally required to register your business name, all addresses where pesticides are stored and an estimate of the volume of pesticides you use,” Cowie said, writing on the union’s blog.

Sarah Cowie, Environmental Resources Policy Manager for NFU Scotland.

She added that anyone using such products for the first time after June 22, or who started selling pesticides, had to register within three months of starting.

“You only need to register once. If there is a significant change in the use of pesticides by your business, such as a change of business address or the closure of the business, you must notify Defra,” she added.

She also pointed out that the registration deadline represented a statutory deadline. “Failure to comply without a reasonable excuse is an offence. If you miss the deadline, you should submit your form as soon as possible,” she said – adding that the union would notify members of any future changes to registration requirements.

And she added that the definition of a “professional user” covered any person or company that used pesticides in the course of their professional activities: “You are considered a professional user if you work in agriculture, or forestry in Great Britain and use professional pesticides and any adjuvants in the course of your work, including if you are contracted to spray pesticides on the land of others; have a third party apply professional pesticides and any adjuvants as part of your work in agriculture or horticulture, pleasure or forestry; use pesticides when working in agriculture or horticulture when farming or caring for arable crops, forage crops, livestock, or when treating seeds.

Cowie added that when companies sold professional pesticides separately from their use, they had to register both as a company that used pesticides and as a company that sold pesticides, pointing out that the forms were different. in both cases.

And while many farmers felt the registration exercise was unnecessary, as adopting good practices in pesticide use was already an important part of agricultural insurance schemes, she said: “ We have provided comments that this process can be seen as a duplication of information already provided by other quality assurance systems.

Farmers unhappy with new controls on agricultural chemicals

“But due to the data protection requirements associated with it, and to ensure as many registrations as possible, it was deemed best for everyone to register, in the hope that the burden on farmers would be minimal. .”

Hardware is expected to be the dominant vertical farming market segment over the forecast period

In the vertical farming market, hardware is the dominating segment in terms of market share throughout the forecast period. Vertical farming is a form of controlled-environment farming practice performed indoors with an artificial environment created to promote crop growth. Sunlight, necessary for the photosynthesis process, is replaced by artificial lights in vertical farming. Hydroponics, one of the technologies of vertical farming, is the process of growing crops without soil, where a continuous supply of water with necessary nutrients is provided to the roots of crops. Similarly, to create an environment conducive to growth, climate control systems are installed, while to track and monitor crop growth, sensors are installed. The companies that manufacture these hardware components are careful to develop products that are perfectly suited for growing indoor crops.

In Asia-Pacific, companies involved in vertical farming are investing and expanding their operations to other countries. For example, in November 2019, Sustenir (Singapore), an agri-tech company, launched a 30,000 square foot hydroponic vertical growing facility in Tuen Mun, Hong Kong. Hong Kong is a densely populated country with limited land availability for agriculture. Products from conventional agriculture are not enough to meet local demand and the country is therefore highly dependent on imported products. Similar is the case with Singapore. To decrease reliance on imported food and reduce food waste in the transportation process, growing a significant amount of food locally, in a limited space, is the solution offered by vertical farming, driving the expansion of farms by corporations of this region.

Based on the growth mechanism, the vertical farming market has been segmented into hydroponics, aeroponics and aquaponics. These growth mechanisms do not include land use, allowing farmers to establish indoor farms and practice agriculture anywhere, regardless of climate. In countries where the climate remains cold at most of the year and where the quality of the soil is not favorable for agriculture, these mechanisms have evolved as an effective substitute for traditional or conventional agricultural methods.

Based on the structure, vertical farming is carried out mainly in two structures: vertical farms based on buildings and vertical farms based on shipping containers. The deep truss is another structure used in vertical farming. However, this structure has limited adoption; therefore, only qualitative information is provided for the same.

		Lightyear Frontier asks: what if Farming Simulator, but with a transformer instead of tractors?
		Tue, 14 Jun 2022 14:30:40 +0000


Mechs are generally portrayed as weapons of mass destruction. Even though you can befriend them (looking at you, Titanfall 2), in the end, they just stomp around and shoot your guns. Enter Lightyear Frontier, a game that drops you on an unknown planet with the robot as your Swiss army knife. Here, the machines do not kill, they “shoot to create”. In this mix of exploration, base-building and farming, robots can equip up to four different tools for any job, whether it’s throwing seeds in a grow bed, hydrate them with your hose or collect resources with a drill attachment. They look like a tractor transformed into a Transformer, the red front particularly reminiscent of older models of agricultural vehicles.

For Swedish developer Frame Break – whose first project appeared in the Xbox and Bethesda showcase this weekend – the mech became the perfect multi-tool early on: something that would fit the theme of exploring a world alien, would be fun to use and give the farming game genre a modern twist. “We really wanted something you could do anything with,” says CEO Joakim Hedström. Since you’ll be spending so much time in one, the mech also comes with a host of customization options, from color to movement system, to help every player fulfill their “personal mech fantasy”.

Your mech can dash through meadows, for example, before seamlessly resuming its two-legged amble, and you can customize it with different dyes in your mech garage, a space to gaze lovingly at the finished product. The game offers both a third-person and first-person perspective – in the former you can move around and enjoy both your mech and planet environments, while tasks such as harvesting Materials automatically place you in first-person view so it’s easier to see what you’re doing.

Hedström emphasizes that Lightyear Frontier is a deeply peaceful experience, “a tribute to nature”, as he calls it. You can see it in the studio’s inspirations, which include My Time at Portia, Astroneer, and The Planet Crafter. The agricultural and economic systems of Lightyear Frontier, the latter represented by a merchant who lands on the planet at certain intervals, are driven by sustainability rather than simple profit. Trying to grow and sell endless monocultures won’t get you far, as the value of individual items goes up and down. But neither is it about growing and selling. To build a base, you must first craft tools, and to craft tools, you must source raw materials and process them into components. Where there is crafting, there is also a research tree. Research allows you to unlock not only new types of buildings, but also upgrades and mechanical items.

There is no game over. We call Lightyear Frontier a deathless survival game
