The Sustainable Expansion of Cattle Market in Nan Province

The School of Agricultural Resources (SAR), Chulalongkorn University, has conducted a research project, “The development of farmer’s competency, cooperation mechanism and sustainable expansion of beef cattle market opportunity in Nan”, which runs in collaboration with Nan Provincial Livestock Office, Nan Provincial Agriculture and Cooperatives Office, and Nan Provincial Office.

Land-Grant Press publications provide vital knowledge from Clemson Cooperative Extension program areas

What do peanut aflatoxins, aquaponics, integrated pest management for crops and sealed timber bids have in common? They are all subjects of practical application in Land-Grant Press by Clemson Extension publications. Written by Cooperative Extension agents and University scientists, Land-Grant Press publications are research-based, peer-reviewed scholarly work.

WVU Extension experts provide guidance for forage and livestock management after flooding

Flooding can be devastating on many levels. Two West Virginia University Extension officials say precautions should be taken so that livestock do not get ill by feeding on materials that have been contaminated by soil, bacteria and flood debris contained in floodwaters.

UNH Research: Forest to Pasture – Keeping Trees Could Reduce Climate Consequences

Researchers at the University of New Hampshire studied a practice known as silvopasture which intentionally preserves trees in pastures where livestock graze. They found that compared to a completely cleared, tree-less, open pasture, the integrated silvopasture released lower levels of carbon dioxide and nitrous oxide and soil carbon storage remained the same, offering a possible alternative for farmers with less climate consequences.

Consumers embrace milk carton QR codes, may cut food waste

The “use-by” and “best-by” dates printed on milk cartons and gallon jugs may soon become a thing of the past, giving way to more accurate and informative QR codes. A new Cornell University study finds that consumers will use the QR codes – to better depict how long the milk is drinkable and create substantially less agricultural and food waste.

Emissions tied to the international trade of agricultural goods are rising

Irvine, Calif., May 6, 2022 – Earth system scientists at the University of California, Irvine and other institutions have drawn the clearest line yet connecting consumers of agricultural produce in wealthier countries in Asia, Europe and North America with a growth in greenhouse gas emissions in less-developed nations, mostly in the Southern Hemisphere.

St. Louis Comes Together to Announce the Taylor Geospatial Institute

The Taylor Geospatial Institute is a first-of-its-kind institution that brings together eight leading research institutions to collaborate on research into geospatial technology.

Soil study shows why nitrous oxide emissions should factor into climate change mitigation

Poorly drained agricultural soils emit enough of the greenhouse gas nitrous oxide that the resulting climate change effects could far exceed the benefits of using the same soils as a means of sequestering carbon, according to a recently published scientific study.
