Producing more food with less: Investing in resource-efficient technologies and practices
Globally, agrifood chains consume 30 percent of the world’s available energy – with more than 70 percent consumed beyond the farm gate. In the Mediterranean region, an area with limited land and water resources where agriculture plays a substantial role, the effectiveness and overall productivity of agrifood value chains will be increasingly dependent on the availability and efficient use of energy and natural resources. Achieving the transition to “resource-smart” food systems will require better policy-making as well as a collaborative and proactive multi-stakeholder approach. The video has been produced on the occasion of the Private Sector Forum on Food Security in the Southern and Eastern Mediterranean Region that was held in Barcelona on 5 and 6 May 2015 © FAO: http://www.fao.org

Water Resources
005 - Water Resources In this video Paul Andersen explains how water is unequally distributed around the globe through the hydrologic cycles. Seawater is everywhere but is not useful without costly desalination. Freshwater is divided between surface water and groundwater but must me stored and moved for domestic, industrial, and agricultural uses. Subsidized low cost water has created a problem with water conservation but economic changes could help solve the problem. Do you speak another language?

Bangka Island - Rehabilitating Soil
Rehabilitating Soil with Farmers on Bangka Island Mineral extraction can be very profitable, but violent to the soil. After mining, the soil needs to be rehabilitated before it can be used in agriculture again. On Bangka Island, Indonesia, Farmers want to know how to improve the quality of their soil, increase their yields, and improve their livelihoods. Here is an example of researchers and farmers setting up a trial field together to test several locally available soil additives.

inDUSTrial agriculture
Support our Kickstarter- kickstarter.com/projects/cyrussutton/island-earth-documentary Chemical agriculture bears an uncanny resemblance to the pharmaceutical industry. Both produce patented drugs that are meant to eventually fail so new ones need to be invented. The United Nations has repeatedly reported that small farmers consistently grow 70% of the world's food supply on less than 30% of the world’s agricultural resources while the remaining 30% is produced by industrial/chemical farming which consumes 70% of the resources. According to the land-use group Grain, "The powerful demands of food and energy industries are shifting farmland and water away from direct local food production to the production of commodities for industrial processing. Big farms generally consume more resources, control the best lands, receive most of the irrigation water and infrastructure, yet they have lower technical efficiency and therefore lower overall productivity. Much of this has to do with low levels of employment used on big farms in order to maximize return on investment. Small farms are often twice as productive as large farms and are more environmentally sustainable. Using less than a quarter of the world's agricultural land, such farms are getting smaller all the time, if small farmers continue to lose the very basis of their existence, the world will lose its capacity to feed itself. We need to urgently put land back in the hands of small farmers and make the struggle for agrarian reform central to the fight for better food systems." A revealing study published by Cornell University asserts that we are destroying 37,000 square miles of farmland due to soil erosion caused by industrial agricultural practices which exhaust soil health. Without fungal and plant root webs soil becomes structureless dirt that can be easily swept away by wind and rain. And according to a Stanford University study, soil erosion and runoff are the greatest contributors of ocean acidification. "The threat of nuclear weapons and man's ability to destroy the environment are really alarming. And yet there are other almost imperceptible changes - I am thinking of the exhaustion of our natural resources, and especially of soil erosion - and these are perhaps more dangerous still, because once we begin to feel their repercussions it will be too late." - (p144 of The Dalai Lama's Little Book of Inner Peace: 2002, Element Books, London) If this is such a huge threat, then why aren’t we doing anything about it? Most people have been mislead to believe that large-scale, chemical agriculture is the only way to feed the growing population and have laid down their rights. Despite this, many counties and states in the US are waking up and attempting to protect themselves by demanding transparency and placing restrictions on agrochemical companies. Nearly all of these grassroots bills have been countered by multimillion dollar campaigns to scare voters. In the past election alone, over 30 million dollars was spent in Oregon and Colorado to defeat their proposed GMO labeling bills. In cases when the people rise up despite corporate PR and pass legislation, like in the case of Kauai’s 2491 bill, the chemical companies have sued the people citing the The Right to Farm Bill. The Right to Farm Bill was drafted to protect farmers from undue complaints but in the list of protective measures includes the praying of pesticides, herbicides and fungicides. The fact that these terms are accepted as inherent practices with farming shows a lack of public understanding of the realities of farming. Only with an informed public can we vote with our dollars and our ballots to ensure the food we consume is not irreparably harming our environment. Because of this I am making a documentary about the effects of industrial agriculture and people who are moving back to land and discovering new efficient solutions for local food production.

2019 Recurring Request #2: Critical Agricultural and Natural Resources Research - $1.54M
Scientists at Clemson’s six Research and Education Centers (RECs) are driven to keep South Carolina farmers competitive on a national and global scale through research critical to maintaining economically viable and competitive crop production. Maintaining this core expertise requires research support, including a cohort of crop research technicians, to serve as a continuous base for successful applications for research grants and contracts with the USDA, state commodity boards, Environmental Protection Agency, Department of Energy and many other key groups. The requested funds will be used to hire scientific personnel required to support research in areas essential to the continued competitiveness of South Carolina farmers. These areas include: agricultural systems modeling; agricultural technology transfer; saline agriculture; silvopasture; enhanced crops; and industrial hemp. Transcript: (piano music) Immediately from retiring from Duke Energy and deciding to get into the cattle business, literally the first people I called were the people at Clemson Extension Service. Many Clemson people are very knowledgeable in some specific areas which I could never take the time to study and learn that much. But if they understand my operation, they can help me apply the bottom line technology to what I'm doing to make me more effective and more profitable. We've been able to carry our operation from roughly 140 females to almost, well probably, 200 females. That's a lot of money for the same land. (Graphic appears on screen with b-roll of Extension employees working. It reads: Critical Agricultural and Natural Resources Research $1.54M. Clemson PSA is requesting funds to support scientists driven to keep South Carolina farmers competitive on a national and global scale through research critical to maintaining economically viable and competitive crop production. Invest in Clemson. Top Quality Education. Prepared Work Force. A Strong Economy. For a strong South Carolina.)
The Economics of Conservation
William Gascoigne with the U.S. Geological Survey is investigating the economic contribution of conserved habitat lands to the economy in the Prairie Pothole Region (PPR) of the U.S. His research shines a light on the linkages between landscape conditions and conditions within surrounding rural communities; linkages that are not always that apparent. This research context has been relatively understudied in the natural resources field, but has emerged due to the current economic climate and competing land uses in the PPR. The question his research aims to address— how does investing in landscape conservation impact rural economies now and in the future? The study, which received funding from the Plains and Prairie Pothole Landscape Conservation Cooperative in 2011, is breaking ground by illustrating the "socioeconomics" of wildlife conservation, particularly in rural communities heavily dominated by agriculture. It will analyze the dollar value of specific conservation actions by drawing parallels to the value of outdoor recreation, a storied pastime in the dwindling hunting and fishing communities of the PPR, while considering the value of agricultural interests. Hunters and anglers traditionally have been poised to support habitat restoration and species management efforts because of their direct connection to the landscape. With fewer hunters and anglers relative to the growing human population, natural resource managers increasingly look to the agricultural community for collaboration and support to maximize habitat quality and achieve other landscape natural resources objectives, while keeping agricultural values intact. The results of Gascoigne's research can ultimately be used at the local level by natural resource managers and local agricultural interests to inform on the ground conservation and land use activities to maximize landscape conservation objectives.

Natural water source is on the brink of extinction in Domat, Bihar - Video volunteer Tanju Reports
Agriculture communities across many villages depend on natural resources to support their farming. The sustenance of these resources is never the priority of the administration. Natural resources may soon be on the brink of extinction. Lachnauta Jumi is a water source situated near Domat village. This water is used for drinking, bathing and irrigation. A few years ago, Ramchandra Manjhi & Jeetan Manjhi from Dharampur took over the land and have begun farming there. They have been slowly shutting all access to the water sources. -Since when has this water been flowing? -The water source has been there since primeval times. It used to be surrounded by trees and plants. It was a jungle. And the water has always been flowing naturally. - What problems are you facing because of them? - Four persons have taken over the land for farming. - Where are they from? - Dharampur. They got some people to cut trees, level the ground, filled all trenches and have now begun farming. - Have you'll taken any action? - Many a times. We went to the block officer and later to the city of Narkatiyaganj. We had even met with people in Betiyan. -What do you want now? -The community would like to see more trees planted on that land and the land be admeasured and fenced properly. This would help us get a better access to water. I too am a farmer from this community. I too use similar irrigation methods for farming. This is why I wish to see the sustenance of these natural resources. I wish to see villagers from Domat village get access to water resources. Land, for this reason, must be preserved to help sustenance of natural resources. Please call the circle officer on +91-9431826712 and ask him to take appropriate action so that irrigation facilities remain available to the farmers of this community.

Natural Resource Depletion
Title: Natural Resource Depletion Topic: Causes, Oil Depletion, Deforestation, Wetland Depletion Specific Purpose Statement: To inform about the causes of different types of natural resource depletion Thesis Statement: There are many causes to natural resource depletion such as oil depletion, deforestation, and wetland depletion. Introduction: Our natural resource supply is continuously decreasing as time goes by. The world is currently experiencing severe deforestation, wetland depletion, and oil depletion. There are several causes to the depletion of the world’s resources. I. Causes A. Overpopulation 1. 7 billion people in the world 2. demand on resources constantly increasing B. Agricultural uses 1. Causes deforestation 2. Using water as a resource 2. Ogallala Aquifer depletion i. 2 feet of water loss from 2011-13 C. Mining of minerals and oil 1. Nonrenewable resources constantly being used 2. Acid drainage from extractions, rain falling causes sulphuric acid to form II. Deforestation 1. Permanent destruction of forests to make land available 2. 18 million acres of forests are lost each year 3. Contributes to global climate change 4. Releases carbon dioxide into the air 5. Loss of habitat i. Species extinction 6. Soil erosion i. Can lead to silt entering water sources, decreasing water quality III. Wetland Depletion A. Over 220 millions of acres of wetlands, over half of them gone B. Drained and changed to farmland C. Wetlands filter any water that would directly run into a water system i. Loss in wetlands cause change in water chemistry IV. Oil Depletion A. Peak Oil 1. Maximum rate of extraction, expected to enter terminal decline 2. Depletion rates vary from 2% per year to 20% per year 3. Out of 42 largest oil producing countries, 30 have passed their peaks Conclusion: Our nation is causing our natural resources to deplete. There are many actions that cause our source of resources to deplete, and because of those actions, we are now experiencing and dealing with deforestation, wetland depletion, and oil depletion.

Critical Infrastructure: Evaluating Natural Gas Utilization In Agriculture (Part 1)
Farmers have long explored alternative management techniques and advanced equipment to provide energy savings associated with grain drying. Propane is a clean burning fuel source that can be effectively distributed to rural areas that lack access to natural gas infrastructure, making it an ideal fuel source for numerous agricultural operations including grain drying. According to the National Propane Education and Resource Council, propane is used by nearly 900,000 farms across the country, powering roughly 80 percent of U.S. grain drying operations. While Propane has long been a critical energy source in agriculture, Ohio is in the midst of an energy transition that has led many Ohio farmers to consider investing in natural gas infrastructure to support the energy demands of their farm operations. This video short video summarizes evidence-based data driven tools developed to help Ohio farmers navigate propane to natural gas energy infrastructure investment options.

On-Field Ohio: Updating Ohio Phosphorus Risk Index
Phosphorus associated with eroded sediment can be reduced by reducing soil disturbance such as tillage as well as maintaining field cover either as crop residue or a growing crop, says Elizabeth (Libby) Dayton, a scientist in the college’s School of Environment and Natural Resources. Her On-Field Ohio project seeks to update/revise the Ohio Phosphorus Risk Index, which is a U.S. Department of Agriculture-Natural Resources Conservation Service tool used by farmers to assess their risk of phosphorus moving off farm fields. The index is an integral part of a nutrient management plan, Dayton said, that is intended to provide farmers a field-scale estimate of their phosphorus runoff risk.
Ag Literacy Corps: Wildlife Habitat in Working Lands
In urban areas, wildlife habitats may be found in the landscaping or other idle areas in the yard, near bird feeders, bird baths or other items that are placed in one’s yard. The types of plants that are used in landscaping and their positioning can invite different species of birds butterflies or mammals like rabbits and squirrels. In working lands, wildlife habitats can be found in a variety of places. Areas along fence rows and forested areas are great examples. Many of these areas are home to game birds such as pheasant and quail; small game like rabbits and squirrel; and larger wildlife like deer, coyote and bobcats. Over the years, Iowa has seen great changes in the landscape and this has had an impact on the amount of wildlife habitat. When we think about farms at the turn of the century, the plots were much smaller and included a greater variety of activities – there were pasturelands, hay ground and crop land. In many cases, there were acres of forested land as well. Today’s farms are much different. They are much larger and often times are focused on only one type of production – grain or livestock. Yet, with these changes, there are marginal areas on the farm that provide opportunity areas for wildlife habitat. Integrating wildlife considerations into other on-farm practices such as nutrient management, precision ag, livestock production, soil conservation and soil health, and pollinator habitats can make gains for wildlife and not negatively affect farm profitability. There is funding and technical expertise for landowners and producers who want to establish or maintain wildlife habitats. Organizations including the Iowa Department of Natural Resources and the Natural Resources Conservation Service provide a variety of resources that are no- or low-cost. Small changes on the land by many players can lead to big improvements in wildlife habitat quality. For more information visit our website: http://www.extension.iastate.edu/ag/

Regeneration of Our Lands: A Producer’s Perspective | Gabe Brown | TEDxGrandForks
The United States is in crisis. The health of our soil resource has declined to such a point that it is not only negatively affecting farm and ranch profitability, but it is also having a devastating impact on everything from our water quality to our communities and even to our health. North Dakota rancher Gabe Brown walks us through a common sense solution to this crisis. Gabe Brown is one of the pioneers of the current soil health movement that focuses on regenerating our resources. Gabe, along with his wife, Shelly, and son, Paul, own and operate a diversified 5,000-acre farm and ranch near Bismarck, ND. Their operation focuses on farming and ranching in nature’s image. The Browns holistically integrate their grazing and no-till cropping systems, which include a wide variety of cash crops, multi-species cover crops along with all natural grass finished beef and lamb. They also raise pastured laying hens, broilers and swine. This diversity and integration has regenerated the natural resources on the ranch without the use of synthetic fertilizers, pesticides and fungicides. The Browns are part owners of a state inspected abattoir which allows them to direct market their products. They believe that healthy soil leads to clean air, clean water, healthy plants, animals, and people. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx

Is this the Future of Global Food Systems?
Leontino Balbo Jr has developed an approach to organic sugar cane production with the potential to disrupt the whole agricultural sector itself. In 1986, Leontino began experimenting with "ecosystems revitalising agriculture", a new approach that he believed could increase crop yields, reduce pest numbers and restore natural capital, all while reducing reliance on natural resources. 29 years later, Leontino’s sugar cane farm, based in Sao Paulo, Brazil, has enjoyed unprecedented success with his work becoming a paragon of regenerative agriculture. A hypothesis has transformed into measurable results, with Leontino claiming to be able to produce higher yields, while not raising production costs, using only one third of the resources and providing a swathe of environmental benefits. -- The Disruptive Innovation Festival (DIF) is an online platform which aims to shift mindsets and inspire action towards a circular economy.

Briefing: Preserving Natural Capital Through Water Stewardship
Join us for an interactive discussion on water resources and the role of USDA’s Southern Plains Climate Hub. Meet Clay Pope - farmer, rancher, and former Oklahoma house representative - for a real-world look at climate change adaptation, natural resource preservation, and how advanced stewardship methods add value to agricultural operations. Connect with GreenLeaders DC: Visit our website at http://greenleadersdc.com FaceBook: https://www.facebook.com/greenleadersdc Twitter: https://twitter.com/greenleadersdc LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/company/greenleaders-dc Agriculture faces many challenges due to climate change. Preservation of natural capital like the soil and water on which agricultural production depends is a prime mission of USDA’s Climate Hubs program. Climate Hubs work with local partners to develop and deliver information and assistance to the people who directly manage natural capital - the farmers, ranchers, and citizens at the heart of food systems. What we’ll discuss: The way we treat the land impacts our water, wildlife and the climate If we can control soil erosion and increase organic matter in the soil through improved farming practices and better pasture management we can reduce non-point source pollution in our water, sequester carbon dioxide in the soil and reduce overall emissions. The same practices that help us protect the environment can also reduce agriculture input costs and increase yields, thus also helping the bottom lines of farmers and ranchers. If you want to feed 9 billion people, protect the water and address climate change, the secret is in the soil.

Organic Pesticide (Agriculture Engineering) - by B-Tech Engineer Sunil Kumar +91-9467647961
Story of a organic farmer Sunil Sharma from village Salwan, district Karnal, Haryana. He is getting 3 times more yield with organic farming. By spending lesser amount he get higher return. Advantages of organic farming It helps to maintain environment health by reducing the level of pollution. It reduces human and animal health hazards by reducing the level of residues in the product. It helps in keeping agricultural production at a sustainable level. It reduces the cost of agricultural production and also improves the soil health. It ensures optimum utilization of natural resources for short-term benefit and helps in conserving them for future generation. It not only saves energy for both animal and machine, but also reduces risk of crop failure. It improves the soil physical properties such as granulation, good tilth, good aeration, easy root penetration and improves water-holding capacity and reduces erosion. It improves the soil’s chemical properties such as supply and retention of soil nutrients, reduces nutrient loss into water bodies and environment and promotes favourable chemical reactions.
