Recent mission reveals Brazil’s huge production potential moving forward

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest On March 11, farmers with the Ohio Corn & Wheat Growers Association embarked on a 12-day market study mission of Brazil, a major competitor of international sales to the U.S. The purpose of this mission was to gain a better understanding of Brazil’s role in the worldwide market of agriculture. The in-person mission allowed first-hand insights of strengths and challenges in Brazil’s agricultural industry. Sustainability in BrazilBy Rachael Vonderhaar, who farms with her family in Preble County and serves on the Ohio Small Grains Checkoff BoardMarch 15, 2016As we start off on our 3- to 5-hour bus drive this morning (the wide time range due to rough infrastructure and heavy truck traffic) to tour Brazilian farms, I realize I have time to review my notes from the last couple of days. Our days have been action packed and long, which equals a migraine for Rachael. I am doing much better now as I am able to read and type on the bumpiest roads I have ever been on. I am definitely appreciating the air conditioning on the bus.Yesterday, we visited with Cid Sanches, Director of Aprosoja, Mato Grosso. Aprosoja is a soybean association formed in 2005 to unify the voices of the farmer to the federal government. Thirteen Brazilian states have Aprosoja Associations. Each state’s agriculture picture is unique and it’s hard to find a unified national voice across all agriculture.Soybeans are first crop here and corn is a second crop, which means, corn is planted behind the harvest of the soybeans. The growing season is long enough to raise and harvest two crops in one season in the same field following each other. Sometimes cotton is grown as the second, or double, crop.Cid mentioned several goals Aprosoja is working on for the farmers:1. Communication with the federal governmenta. Labor Lawsb. Production Lossc. Regulations2. International policya. Land useb. Biodieselc. Infrastructure/ Transportation 3. Educating Farmersa. Agronomyb. Farm Safetyc. Profitability4.  Coordinating ResearchComparatively to the U.S. Ag landscape, Approsoja is doing the work of our checkoffs, The Ohio State University Extension, and farm associations/organizations like Ohio Corn & Wheat Growers Association. Brazil has 22% of the world’s crop producing land and 12% of the world’s water, which is a lot of financial opportunity. However, the lack of infrastructure holds the Brazilian agriculture sector from reaching its full potential. Several groups, including the Chinese government, have tried to work with the Brazilian government to build railroad infrastructure to get crops to the ports more efficiently, but there is a current law that prevent any roads or rail from crossing state lines unless owned by the government.Brazil has partnered on public private partnerships in the past, but only when the government owns the final product. The Brazilian government has allowed several entities to explore rail construction options, but no progress has taken place. Conservation is also a big part of the conversation as to why the infrastructure is a challenge.My take-aways:Aprosoja has a lot of work to do with such a large list of topics.I have a lot of respect for the Brazilian farmers and the patience they have for dealing with lack of infrastructure and government struggle (there were large protests/demonstrations that took place on Sunday demanding impeachment of the current President). Marco Reis joined us this evening for a presentation and dinner. Marco represents Alianca De Terra, a not-for-profit committed to working hand-in-hand with the Brazilian farmer and sustainability in three specific areas:1. Environment — conservation, fireprevention/fire brigade, and soil health2. Social –sharing cattle genetics and agricultural practices with native and indigenous people3. Production — gathering information for research, profitability and traceability Alianca De Terra helps to provide education about conservation to the new farmers. They also work with RTRS (Round Table on Responsible Soy) which represents: the soy value chain, responsible soy production, and works with the European market on negotiations. Alianca De Terra is working hard to educate on the understanding the value of conservation and the long term value of “producing right.” Brazil has strict restrictions on clearing of land for agriculture and the value of conservation. Alianca De Terra helps to make sure all farmers are using good land stewardship practices. The most interesting detail of the night was that small scale ag in Brazil is in the most need for education on good stewardship practices.Marco shared the story of John Carter moving to Brazil and starting his soybean farm in the wilderness of northern Mato Grosso. I am not sure I have the grit to make that kind of leap in life, but what an exciting adventure. The Brazilian government did a social outreach program giving 600 families 100 hectares each so they may start farming. Our presentation was followed with a buffet meal at a Brazilian steakhouse and a lot of good conversation and debate.I am thankful to farm in United States. I am thankful to farm in Ohio. I am thankful for our infrastructure, and now I am even more driven to be vocal for maintaining it. I am thankful for the Extension services, checkoffs, and commodity associations who divide and conquer agriculture obstacles we face everyday. I am thankful for my opportunity to learn first-hand about Brazilian agriculture after reading about it for years in grain market reports.A few in the group snapped a quick photo with the Sugar Loaf Mountain. Fields as far as you can seeBy Eric Neer, who farms in Champaign County and serves on the Ohio Corn Checkoff BoardMarch 18, 2016For our last day in the state of Mato Grasso, our group pulled together for a few new experiences. After waking up and hearing that my roomie didn’t have hot water for a shower at the hotel, I crossed my fingers and hoped that the remainder of my day would be better than the first 15 minutes. I was in luck! I found a hot shower within the first few minutes and currently relax at the hotel after an eye-opening day of visits.Our day started out with our group loading the bus in Primavera do Leste, and driving west to Bom Futuro, a farm near Campo Verde. The farm name stands for Good Future, originated in the 1980s as a partnership between four original members. While we didn’t gather a good indication of their original scale, it was hard to believe that they currently farm over 1 million acres in several states. With 5,300 employees, they grow soybeans, cotton, eucalyptus trees (fuel source for dryer), and corn while also utilizing fish farms, cattle grazing, and hydroelectric energy to balance out their operation.It was easy to feel the shift in scale as we drove past a paved air strip on our way to the farm’s movie theater for our introductions. One of their many agronomists then provided a tour of the 225,000-acre farm in Campo Verde. The 4.5 million-bushel storage site was impressive. Eleven combines prepping for soybean harvest in the same field was also impressive. It became evident that we would have a challenge trying to describe the scale and vastness of the opportunities to our friends in Ohio.Picture yourself driving from Cincinnatti to Cleveland and finding nothing but gently rolling ground, fantastic soils, year round warmth, and acres upon acres of corn, soybeans, and cotton. Keep in mind you are on a two-lane road and haven’t spotted a single house. Now imagine that those crops have the potential to increase yield by a factor up to two times at any given moment.This potential opportunity is the true indication that we better prepare for as farmers in Ohio. While we strive to improve our own farming operations, we must also ask ourselves how we could adapt if world supply of corn increases at a faster pace than we traditionally expect. As we look towards our future, let’s be sure to keep one eye on building demand, serving our customers, and helping nourish the world. Capturing maximum sunlightStacie Seger, Communication Manager, Ohio Corn and Wheat Growers AssociationMarch 18, 2016While visiting farms today, the common theme was clear: maximize the amount of energy (sunlight) you can capture. Land never sits idle.The grain farm we visited today was about 3,000 acres and had only been in production for two years. We watched as he harvested soybeans with three combines and across the red dirt driveway planted corn in the field he harvested yesterday. It was fascinating to learn that most of Brazil did not start double cropping until 1990. Although we have actually seen more on-farm storage than we thought we would, this young farmer was storing soybeans in bags until the two new grain bins by his shed were finished.Working to diversity how he captures energy, the 3,000-head beef producer we visited had his farm on a cycle of three years of cattle pasturing on elephant grass and then a year of soybeans as first crop and corn as second crop. His beef-crops rotation is unique and progressive. His 500-hectare farm is currently outlined into 50 to 60 hectare pastures where he moves his cattle on a 7-day rotation. All of the fence posts will be pulled out when it’s time to plant soybeans and corn.The state of Mato Grosso do Sul is currently changing to grains, ethanol (sugarcane), and eucalyptus production from beef cattle region due to land prices. It will be interesting to see how this young grain state looks in a few years.For more from the trip, visit read more

Massive iPhone Security Issue Could Endanger Enterprise Adoption

first_imgRelated Posts Content stored on an iPhone 3GS with passcode protection can be accessed without the passcode simply by attaching the device to a computer running the latest version of Ubuntu or a Windows or OSX system running off the shelf software such as iPhone Explorer. This flaw was discovered by Bernd Marienfeld, an information security professional and blogger, last week. Recently, the enterprise has seen a steep increase in the adoption of the iPhone and iPad. But Apple will need to aggressively address security concerns such as these in order to gain and hold market share.Typically, an iPhone attached to a Windows, OSX, or pre-10.04 Ubuntu system grants access to the DCIM folder only. However, by connecting a powered-off iPhone to a computer running Ubuntu 10.04 (“Lucid Lynx”) and powering the iPhone back on, Marienfeldt was able to gain read-write access to the complete contents of four different non-jailbroken iPhone 3GS phones. Each phone ran a different version of the iPhone operating system, had passcode-protection enabled immediately, and had never been connected to a PC before. Marienfeldt could access photos, videos, audio, and the Google safe-browsing database, all without leaving any evidence that he had accessed the phone at all. He points out that write-access could also make the phones vulnerable to a buffer overflow attack. Massive Non-Desk Workforce is an Opportunity fo… The vulnerability is not a flaw in Ubuntu, but a problem with the way the iPhone handles authentication when attached to a computer. The tech blog Sukimashita reported Windows or OSX systems using applications such as iPhone Explorer could also access protected iPhone 3GS data if the device was powered off when first attached.According to Marienfeldt, Apple has reproduced the issue but has not issued a statement as to when the vulnerability will be patched.As we have reported, security experts criticize Apple’s lack of emphasis on security for its mobile devices. Yet 4 of 10 iPhones are sold to enterprise users. Corporate users likely expect their data to be secure and encrypted. According to Apple’s own iPhone in Business Security Overview document:iPhone can securely access corporate services and protect data on the device. It provides strong encryption for data in transmission, proven authentication methods for access to corporate services, and for iPhone 3GS, hardware encryption for all data stored on the device. iPhone also provides secure protection through the use of passcode policies that can be enforced and delivered over-the-air.Trust Digital, which was acquired by McAfee last week, offers a third-party security solution for iPhone OS, Android, Web OS, Windows Mobile, and Symbian mobile operating systems.iPhone passcode image via Apple; Ubuntu screenshot via Bernd Marienfeld.

China to Convert Phone Booths to Wifi Hotspots

first_imgWith mobile phones nearing 100% market penetration, the Chinese government appears determined to transform the country’s widespread telephone booths into wifi hotspots. “Telecom operators are also trying to setup hotspots in restaurants, hotels, sport facilities, and so on,” writes Asian tech blogger Sherman So. “If the idea is really implemented, they will turn every city in China into a giant Wi-Fi network for fast internet connection.” So’s post was picked up today by design blog PSFK.Though the plan raises concerns about the consequences for the disenfranchised, it’s not hard to imagine big benefits for economic development. Ubiquitous Wi-Fi seems like one of the prerequisites for bringing a country’s whole population online and onboard a new economy based largely on the Internet. Imagine everyone not just reading, but writing to the Web from any street corner they like.

Below my dignity to react to Shoaib Akhtar’s charge: Sachin

first_imgSoon after Pakistan speedster Shoaib Akhtar raised questions about him, Sachin Tendulkar said it was “below my dignity to react”.Tendulkar’s childhood friend and former cricketer Vinod Kambli, who was the architect of many a great innings in company with the batting genius, has also said Sachin was never scared of Akhtar’s bowling, as claimed in the Pakistan cricketer’s book.’Sachin was never scared of Shoaib or anyone. Look at the way he played his cricket and scored highest runs. Nobody is even close to him and nobody ever dares talk to him like that,” Kambli said.Akhtar has made several starling revelations that are set to send the cricketing community running for cover. Akhtar — one of the most controversial cricketers — sparked a row by revealing it all in a tell-all autobiography — Controversially Yours.Akhtar hit out at Indian cricket stars Tendulkar and Rahul Dravid. In a statement, Shoaib criticised Tendulkar and Dravid for not being winners and for not knowing the art of finishing a game.last_img read more

XGEPLs initiative towards a greener future

first_imgXGEPL has partnered with Indraprastha Gas Limited (IGL) for the implementation of its green drive in the region of Delhi and NCR, for carrying out conversion of already in-use diesel generators for the existing IGL customers being supplied PNG. In the pilot phase, the company has converted in-use three diesel generators in institutions using Euro IV technology and have been made operational. Apart from contributing to the environment, these gas based gensets would reduce the operational cost by around 40% as compared to diesel run gensets.E S Ranganathan, Managing Director, Indraprastha Gas Limited inaugurated first of this gas based 125 KVA genset at General William Masonic Polyclinic at Janpath on March 11, 2019, in the presence of Yash Arora and Vikram Bakshi, Directors of XGEPL. Xpert Gas Equipments Pvt Ltd (XGEPL) primarily deals in the conversion of industrial and residential diesel generators to operate on natural gas. Their working technology is not only modern and advanced but most importantly eco-friendly which makes it the absolute necessity of the hour. Since the usage of diesel gensets is restricted in times of high pollution levels as per Graded Response Plan (GRP), gas based gensets would be an opportunity for housing complexes, commercial as well as industrial establishments for having unrestricted power supply. XGEPL started its conversion of diesel generators primarily utilising the technology imported from Italy, and later on went ahead to develop and design its own in-house technology which is equally efficient and cost effective to the end user. The biggest USP which gives a cutting edge to the conversions of diesel generators carried out by XGEPL is that whereas the existing diesel generators in India are meeting the CPCB-II standards of emission, the diesel generators converted using the in-house technology developed by XGEPL is designed to meet the Euro-IV standards of emission without much compromise to the output power of the generator. This level of operational functioning of the converted diesel generator is not only one of its kind but also latest in the Indian market. Geared with its technical team which possesses the necessary professional expertise, its state-of-the-art technology and partnering with IGL, the company looks forward to a brighter future and huge support in conversion of diesel generators, not only helping its users to run eco-friendly generators, but to some extent help them save on high operational costs. And, in a broader perspective to help Delhi NCR to reduce its related pollution by a remarkable margin.last_img read more
