Avant l'orage (1/6). Après des semaines de sécheresse, des orages sont annoncés un peu partout. Vous êtes nombreux à vous demander comment on peut optimiser la gestion de ces pluies pluies pour l'infiltration et la recharge des nappes.

Avant l'orage (2/6). J'ai pris quelques minutes pour vous montrer quelques systèmes d'hydrologie régénérative. Dans ces premières vidéos, nous sommes sur une parcelle expérimentale de @OasisdeSerendip dans la vallée de la Drôme. #eau #climat #sécheresse #agriculture #transition
Avant l'orage (3/6). J'explique le fonctionnement de la baissière. Réalisée avec le concours de @LabPerma, c'est un système d'irrigation passive, totalement #lowtech, nécessitant très peu d'entretien. #eau #sécheresse #climat #agriculture #hydrologieregenerative

Une expérience qui permet d'illustrer (mais pas de démontrer en elle-même) une donnée scientifique contre-intuitive : un sol sec absorbe moins bien l'eau qu'un sol humide. Explications dans ce thread 🔽 (1/9) #sol #climat #hydrologieregenerative #secheresse #eau #agriculture
Cette expérience a été menée il y a quelques jours dans le jardin de l'Université de Reading, au Royaume-Uni. En tant que telle elle n'a pas une grande valeur scientifique, mais elle permet d'illustrer de façon simple la complexité de la notion de perméabilité d'un sol. (2/9)
Si nous souhaitons disposer de + d'eau dans les nappes phréatiques, les cours d'eau et limiter nos besoins en pompage, nous devons concentrer tous nos efforts sur un point : infiltrer l'eau de pluie là où elle tombe, et ralentir le + possible son temps de retour à la mer. (3/9)

were sent by the #Empire as settlers & have been living isolated, hundreds of km from the border with #Hungary proper, maintaining their language, identity, surrounded by a majority of #Romanians. The choice of the location matters as the audience lives there (star)/2
in beautiful surroundings. #Hungary has been supporting this minority investing in #agriculture #schools loans, building new sports arenas while the #Romanian government has been tolerant of this encroachment on sovereignty to maintain #social #peace good relations /3

When our farmers prosper, the nation prospers. With this view, #HCCB has set up 9 Kisan Clubs across different villages in #Gujarat, that help the farmers to adopt sustainable agricultural practices and introduce them to new crop varieties. Image
Innovative practices such as the SRI (System of Rice Intensification) method for paddy cultivation, crop diversification for tomato farming, and the trellis method for vegetable cultivation have helped these farmers manage seasonal challenges and Image
ensure a healthy harvest throughout the year. More than 112 families have not only increased their income

from farming but also nurtured healthier crops in the process. The clubs also provide technical training to these farmers on the Ikhedut portal, Image

This month, the dramatic #FarmersProtests in the Netherlands have captured the media's attention.

Today, we take a look at what the coverage got wrong about the #boerenprotest and the #BigAg interests many journalists failed to mention.👇 1/19

🚫Most reports failed to mention 8 major companies that have an interest in protecting the status quo:

🐷 meat: @VionFoodGroup, @VanDrieGroup & @PlukonFoodGroup
🌽 feed: Van Heus, For Farmers & @Agrifirm
🐮 dairy: @FrieslndCampina

🔍"The Mighty Eight try to be invisible because the more it is seen as a #farmer protest and not the big industry behind it, the better,” says @FrankMechielsen, @feedback_europe.

@Agrifirm even supported the #boerenprotest financially, @NOS reports. 3/19 nos.nl/nieuwsuur/arti…

Here's a surprising reason to be cheerful:

🟢40-60% of the weight of a slaughtered cow goes to making ground beef...

... and ground beef is by far the easiest meat product to replace with precision fermentation or cultivated meat.

Short 🧵 1/
beefcentral.com/wp-content/upl… #vegan
The #climate wrecking livestock industry is barely profitable as it is.

Globally it is propped up by much of the $540bn spent on #agriculture subsidies per year.

In the UK 90% of an average livestock farm's profits come from subsidies.

2/
With such tight margins, farmers have to sell every single part of a cow for the numbers to add up. This is known as the 'carcass balance'.

So, if that 40-60% of the carcass balance is replaced, the business model of farming and killing these sentient beings collapses.

Happy #WorldSnakeDay. #Snakes have an unfair reputation as being poisonous/ aggressive. Our fear of snakes may come from Christianity. Satan took the form of a snake tempting Eve in the Garden of Eden. Yet snakes aren't bad at all! They're critical to ecosystems around the world
#Snakes evolved 130 million years ago in the Cretaceous period from a common ancestor that they share with #birds and other #reptiles. They have cloacal spurs or vestigal limbs, which shows their shared ancestry with limbed reptiles. #WorldSnakeDay 🐍🐍🐍
#Snakes see on the infrared spectrum using heat receptors called pit organs making them epic predators with natural night vision goggles to see prey. Snakes have a detachable jaw which can swallow food whole that is much larger than its own body weight. #WorldSnakeDay 🐍💚

It's weekend and it's the end of the month. The #markets are closed.

So there is the perfect time to analyze the #momentum & relative #strength of the markets.

This information is relevant for all #investors, but especially for #trend #followers 📈📈📈

#marketresearch

🧵
The #momentum of the markets are one of the most powerful forces in the evolution of the #asset #prices.

The #reversion to the mean is the opposite force, which is equally powerful. Momentum works on a short and medium term (up to 3 to 5 years).
There is a ton of academic research related to the momentum and the benefits of using it and relative strength. But presenting it this is not the purpose of this #thread.

Relative strength is actually a comparison between the #momentum of two or more #markets.

🧵
Degree days –
Also known as Growing Degree Days or #GDD

Calculates how many “heating days” there have been during a growing season & is calculated using the hourly temps since planting or the start of the season.

Used to estimate the growth & development of plants & insects.
Soil temperature –

Indicates the #temperature of the #soil itself & is calculated based on recent temperatures.

Used to determine when the soil has warmed enough for various agricultural activities such as sowing seeds.

Current research on microplastics is the stuff of nightmares-

They’re dangerous, they’re spread through our food, they're in the air... they’re everywhere

Thread 1/x
#health #ClimateCrisis #PlasticPollution #food
Much of the research is trapped behind paywalls, and only reported on in a limited, fragmented pattern

-like so much else when large corporations cause environmental damage and impose widespread health impacts on the public

#health #ClimateCrisis #PlasticPollution #food
The growing risks of microplastics are a direct function of an ongoing push by the same sociopathic corporations that are driving the climate crisis

*How #SriLanka got ruined*

Lankans voted for #Rajapakshas knowing very well what they did in the past, including corruption, selling out national assets to #China, #dynastic politics and all.

They still voted for them because Rajapakshas promised things they could not refuse.
1. Their #GST, called VAT Tax, on all products was reduced to 8%, thus making everything cheaper in one stroke. (It also killed the govt revenue). People loved things getting cheaper.
2. The minimum #incometax threshold was changed from 5 Lakhs per annum to 30 Lakhs! Very few earned more than 30L!
A very large part of the population became #tax exempt. This was very popular among the salaried class.

🌽🚜🌻Depuis le début de la guerre en #Ukraine, bcp de gens s’affrontent autour de la question des #jachères. La France, dans la foulée de la Commission européenne, a lancé leur remise en production la semaine dernière.
Mais de quoi retourne-t-il précisément? [A DEROULER]
1/15
Les jachères sont les terres non cultivées des exploitations agricoles. Elles permettent de préserver #biodiversité et qualité des sols. Elles font partie, avec les haies, les mares et les bosquets, de ce que la Commission européenne appelle «surfaces d’intérêt écologique».

Remettre ces #jachères en production pour cultiver davantage de #céréales en France et en Europe est une «lecture très simpliste» des enjeux alimentaires posés par la guerre en #Ukraine, explique @DeSchutterO à @mediapart.

🚨Le nouveau rapport du #GIEC « Atténuation du changement climatique », vient de paraître et présente des solutions pour réduire nos émissions de gaz à effet de serre.

Que faut-il retenir de cette publication ?
🧵👇 Décryptage réalisé avec @Datagora et @CamilleEtienne_ #IPCC Image
🌡️ Les 2 premières parties du rapport montraient que le réchauffement risquait d'atteindre rapidement les +1,5°C et qu'au-delà, de nombreux impacts seraient irréversibles…

Cette 3e partie montre que cet objectif est réalisable avec une action forte et immédiate. Image
Les conclusions du #GIEC montrent l'importance de changer nos modes de vie pour réduire les émissions de gaz à effet de serre.

Le combo sobriété / efficacité / renouvelables présente un fort potentiel pour les diminuer et ainsi limiter le changement climatique ! Image
