U.S., Brazil agree on MOU to help Haiti with farming systems ...

By Agri-Pulse staff

WASHINGTON, April 10 - The Governments of the United States and Brazil formalized a partnership to improve food security in Latin America and the Caribbean. The Memorandum of Understanding begins with a trilateral agreement with the Government of Haiti to improve agriculture practices and technologies.


“We are excited about the opportunity to collaborate with Brazil and take advantage of our countries’ relative expertise in agriculture,” said Mark Feierstein, Assistant Administrator for Latin America and the Caribbean at USAID. “By combining efforts, our countries can help others improve nutrition for rural communities and increase incomes for poor farmers.”




In Haiti, the partnership will primarily focus on sharing new technologies and implementing exchange programs and training opportunities. The three governments will: 1) test new varieties of maize, rice, beans, cowpeas and other crops; 2) implement new farming systems tha…

South Gujarat mango farmers devastated by weather ...

Mango farmers sulkingHimansshu Bhatt, TNN | 


Apr 10, 2012, 10.57PM IST




SURAT: Upbeat mango farmers of south Gujarat are sulking now due to unexpected withering of lots of small fruits. What was expected to be a bumper crop year for mango has been turned into a year of losses.

So worried are the agricultural and horticulture scientists that an emergency meeting of experts and well known award-winning farmers has been called at Navsari Agriculture University (NAU) to discuss the problem and find ways and means to prevent such occurring in future.




The region produces nearly 55-60 per cent of the total mango crop produced in Gujarat.





However, the good news is, compared to last season, the crops are going to be about 30-35 per cent higher. Last season was considered as one of the worst years when only 40 per cent of mango production was seen in the region.




"Those who had full-fledged flowering in mid-winter months of November-December are facing maximum problem. No proper pollination took p…

Soil Fertility in Africa gets major support ...

Howard G. Buffett Foundation's Brown Revolution Program to Fund Improved Soil Fertility in Africa in Partnership with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation

Increased investment in healthier soils will help farming families in Africa boost productivity




SEATTLE, November 18, 2011 – The Howard G. Buffett Foundation and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation today announced a joint effort to improve the quality of Africa’s depleted soils. The Buffett Foundation will contribute $2 million to expand the work of N2Africa, an initiative of Wageningen University in The Netherlands supported by the Gates Foundation since 2009.


The N2Africa initiative currently aims to increase productivity of legumes and improve family nutrition, soil health, and farm income by maximizing biological nitrogen fixation with soybeans, groundnuts, common beans, and cowpeas in eight countries: Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Nigeria, Ghana, Kenya, Rwanda, Malawi, Zimbabwe, and Mozambique. The funding from …

Worst rains in 14 years wash out Ecuadoran farmers ...

Babahoyo, Ecuador (AFP) April 3, 2012







Thousands of poor Ecuadoran farmers are watching their livelihoods being washed away, hit by the worst rainfall in 14 years which has cost 24 lives and left a heart-breaking trail of damage.



"What the water gives, the water takes away," said elderly Francisco Barzola, sadly recounting how he has lost everything since the rains came at the start of the year.




"We are suffering with all this water that God has sent us, and which is now up to our necks," he said at his home in Los Compadres in the coastal province of Guayas, which stretches down to the Pacific Ocean.



And more misery is in sight, with the rains predicted to continue for another month in flooded coastal areas. Thousands of people have already been forced to flee, and 186 homes have been left waterlogged and uninhabitable.


Vast rural areas of the coast have been inundated, affecting some 80,000 people and the government has declared a state of emergency in …

Group studies fallout from reactor nuclear explosions after Tsunami ...

Sampling the Pacific for signs of Fukushima
by Staff Writers



Woods Hole MA (SPX) Apr 10, 2012



Much of the contaminated water washed directly into the Northwest Pacific or collected in the basement of the reactor buildings and seeped slowly out, carrying with it a number of different radionuclides. In addition, several explosions in the reactor buildings sent additional radioactive materials into the atmosphere, much of which eventually landed in the ocean.



An international research team is reporting the results of a research cruise they organized to study the amount, spread, and impacts of radiation released into the ocean from the tsunami-crippled reactors in Fukushima, Japan. The group of 17 researchers and technicians from eight institutions spent 15 days at sea in June 2011 studying ocean currents, and sampling water and marine organisms up to the edge of the exclusion zone around the reactors.
