WHEN WILL MANGO FARMERS WAKE UP ??? : MASHUMUS (KeyLine) Orchard Management is the answer

Juan Bernardo entre el pasto Rodex, nos muestra la abundancia y diversidad del pasto de su rancho. Nadie lo habría imaginado hace unos meses.

Antes de las lluvias Eugenio y Raquel de Máshumus diseñaron el rancho para capitalizar todo el agua de lluvia y aprovechar los bordos existentes

En algunos canales se sembró pasto para acelerar el proceso de cobertura, estabilización y mayor infiltración en los canales

La vegetación natural va tapizando los canales construidos antes de las lluvias

En Costa Rica:

En el suelo, con una aplicación de biofertilizante, las hojas se descomponen en unos días, incorporándose al suelo y cerrando ciclos

Orlando, FL—The National Mango Board announces the release of a new tool to inspire menu innovation, Mango Flavor Pairing Guide. The guide was developed to create excitement about fresh mango as a versatile ingredient, the key to innovation all across menus, all year-round.

(Edmonton) It might be the ugliest diamond you’ll ever see, but within this brown sliver of carbon is a gem of a find for a University of Alberta scientist working to unravel an ocean-sized mystery deep beneath the Earth.

An international team of scientists led by Graham Pearson, Canada Excellence Research Chair in Arctic Resources at the U of A, has discovered the first-ever sample of a mineral called ringwoodite.

 Analysis of the mineral shows it contains a significant amount of water—1.5 per cent of its weight—a finding that confirms scientific theories about vast volumes of water trapped 410 to 660 kilometres beneath the Earth, between the upper and lower mantle.

“This sample really provides extr…
