#Thread 💧 [Pluies et Érosion des Sols] 🌧️

Les fortes pluies de ces dernières semaines sont peu habituelles en période estivale, on pourrait se dire que c'est tant mieux pour la #biodiversité et notre #agriculture : « Mieux vaut ça qu'une canicule ? », pas aussi simple. ⤵️ 1/18
💧 Le problème des pluies diluviennes sur nos sols, est assez simple à imager, le surplus d'eau emporte dans sa route les matières à la surface... Créant la fameuse érosion des sols. 2/18
💥⛰️ Cette érosion créé des dégâts bien connu sur les [#Infrastructures], notamment de voirie.

Les problèmes de ruissellement et d’érosion des sols affectent particulièrement les dépenses d'infrastructures des zones de montagne (Mais aussi les côtes). 3/18

Le rapport annuel 2021 fait le point sur:

➡️L’évolution des émissions de #GES de la 🇫🇷, ses régions et en 🇪🇺
➡️La mise en œuvre des politiques publiques #climat
➡️Les impacts du #changementclimatique et les politiques d’#adaptation

Des progrès dans l’évolution des émissions des régions à l’#Europe qui doivent être renforcés.

En 🇫🇷, le rythme de↘️des émissions s’est accentué (-1,9% en 2019), mais doit encore pratiquement doubler dès 2021 pour s’aligner avec les objectifs #climat

Des progrès ont été réalisés, certains d’ordre structurel.

➡️Les secteurs des #bâtiments, #industrie et #énergie progressent mais doivent accélérer le rythme
➡️Les émissions de l’#agriculture ne diminuent que lentement
➡️Les émissions des #transports stagnent avant 2020

#Agriculture #Earnings in #India
1. Farming is a fixed cost activity, with uncertainty of output. Cost of living is largely fixed for all of us.

2. Cost of living experiences structural shift as the economy grows.

3. Earnings benchmarked to rural cost of living do not allow us to make investment for building capability to take advantage of urban opportunities. Explained later while building a case for public spend.
4. India has constrained its ability to grow by not pricing agri products to help farmers earn sufficient income that give them a chance to invest in themselves & their family and make a transition to urban jobs or becoming entrepreneur.

290 years old today! You didn’t know? Well, let’s explore nearly 300 years of Irish history through the eyes of what started in 1731 as the Dublin Society.

Ireland’s original enlightenment organisation. A thread...
The fourteen founders of the Dublin Society held their first meeting in the Old Library of @tcddublin (which wasn’t so old then). Their aim was to improve Ireland economically & culturally through the development of #agriculture, #art, industry & #science.
Agriculture was important from the beginning, with lectures on innovative farming methods & demonstrations of the latest equipment. An experimental farm examined crop management, pest control & new farming practices. A precursor to the Spring Show & ultimately to @teagasc

#Vedic texts suggest that #Hindus originally did not worship idols and build #temples, and it is quite likely that both Hindus and #Buddhists got the idea from the #Greeks.
#India accounted for 33% of the #World economy in AD 1.
#China's share was 26% of World GDP.
India was by far the World's economic superpower at that time.
#Indians sold textiles, spices and demanded precious metals in payment.
Not a year passed in which #India did not take 50 million sesterces away from #Rome.

Primary land for #agriculture #forestry and #fisheries is front page news and may be at the cusp of a generational bull run. Yet, the market hasn’t really factored this in. 🤷

What are some ways we can play this trend?

Let’s take a deep dive. 👇
2. Classical economists like Adam Smith and David Ricardo modelled the economy with four factors of production: Labour, Capital, Entrepreneurship (or ‘technology’).. and land.

Tech and capital used to be the most scarce, but do you think that's the case now?
3. Recently megatrend analysts have been pointing at increasing food and fiber needs, increasing population, increasing wealth, and decreasing land availability all contributing to relative scarcity of good quality primary land.

Here’s the EU projecting declining land..

Today, on #TheMisplacedMenagerie -

We report the exotic (for #India) apple #snail, #Pomacea diffusa, also known as the spike topped apple snail, from the #Mumbai region, as part of our ongoing studies on #urbanwildlife, and the #ecology of introduced species, in #India, Mumbai.
The study was officially published in the 'ELA Journal of Forestry and Wildlife' - a peer reviewed #science journal, which is also the official journal of the #Maharashtra State #Forest Department.

Link to paper:…

Spiked Topped Apple Snails in #Mumbai (and other parts of #India) are the direct result of the #aquarium trade - either as accidental, or deliberate releases from home aquaria.

Precios agrícolas continuan disparados en Chicago x las importaciones chinas. Y no es x culpar al sospechoso habitual. Este articulo en el South China Morning Post refleja la enorme tensión y necesidades d importación d granos. Seguid el hilo #foodsecurity…
"Food security is in reality a feedstock problem, because China cannot produce enough feed grains such as soybeans to support its large and rapidly growing livestock industry and thus must rely on imports.” #Agriculture #ChinaFood
Between January to March, China imported 6.7 million tonnes of corn, +438% (to the same period last year), according to customs data. Imports of wheat and barley both surged by +130%, while 21.1 million tn. of soybean were brought into the country in the same period, +19% #Grains

One key rule of farming is patience.

If you are not patient enough don't worry you can still be in the agric business.
Yes, I said so because along the value chain there are many ways of making money but one key opportunity for those who want to venture is agro marketing.
There are many agricultural products people around you consume; you could start being a distributor.

In fact, most times I advise anyone who wants to go into farming or production to start off marketing.
#business #innovation #selling
That way you begin to learn some basics so when you go into your own, you would have identified the need of the customers in your niche.

For example, if you want to start a layers farm, sell eggs!

Une histoire que je voulais partager avec vous

Celle de @PChassac , agriculteur producteur de Prunes et de noisettes dans le Lot-et-Garonne

Avec Patrick on s’est rencontrés sur Twitter, le courant est tout de suite passé

J’aime bien Twitter pour ça , on peut faire de belles rencontres avec des gens qu’on ne croiserait pas forcément dans la vraie vie :)

Patrick cultive une cinquantaine d’hectares de pruniers et de noisetiers, il est engagé dans une démarche de ferme Dephy (réduction de pesticides)

Mais ce n’est pas de ça dont je vais vous parler aujourd’hui...

A lot of food used to be cheaper until we started shipping so much to China.

Almonds and Peaches are an example.

Grown in orchards all around me - raw prices skyrocketed to the point I seldom buy them, anymore.

The orchardists are getting screwed by the altered supply chain.
We ship peaches to China where they 'CAN' them for USA then ship them back to USA.

How fucked up is that?

HOW MUCH EXTRA do you think that adds to a price of peaches and takes jobs out of USA?
Turning American Farms into commodities has ended up screwing Farmers and Orchardists - and our #Agriculture industry.

Whether it's Beef, Lamb, Nuts, Fruits or Legumes, the evolution of the supply chain ended up screwing family farmers-and consumers.

And fresh water supplies.
