Pests are a major hazard that damage crops and turn farmers’ efforts into a waste of time and resources. Thus, their control is a significant task that warrants serious treatment and timely response. Agriculture tackles the issue with integrated pest management.
Agriculture was a major activity of primitive people alongside hunting, once they discovered fire and realized that grains tasted better when cooked. Even though there are disputes to advocate carnivores stating that meat contains all necessary nutrients for humans, the total absence of crops would have a dubious benefit for mankind.
Soil is a complex system of chemical, biological, and physical process interactions. These interactions must be well balanced in order to grow and obtain high yields of cultivated plants.
Soon Ukraine is about to lift the moratorium on the sale of farmlands. In this regard, EOS Crop Monitoring has launched an interactive satellite map showing the real state of the national agribank. The data allows to reevaluate the actual size of the fields which is why multiple regions have revealed to contain more farmland than the national registry.
Minerals are the source of vital energy for plants. These are not food as green organisms produce it on their own via photosynthesis (transforming the energy of sunlight into the energy of chemical reactions). They are basically ‘vitamins’ or ‘dietary supplements’ necessary for crops improvement.
The awareness on causes, consequences, and preventive measures of soil degradation is crucial for farmers around the globe. The concept of soil degradation refers to the environmental processes that destroys soil structure, affects its fertility, and undermines the quality of water. Soil endures physical, chemical, and biological changes depending on the factor that drives degradation. The key items that expedite degradation are as follows: water, wind, ice movement, and gravity.
