1/On entend beaucoup de choses très différentes sur la méthanisation, des louanges aux critiques, des espoirs aux préjugés, pas simple de se faire son avis

Le meilleur moyen pour moi de vous en parler est de vous raconter ´EUX’

2/´EUX’ ce sont ces agriculteurs qui ont réinventé une partie de leur métier et se sont lancés dans l’aventure méthanisation

Chaque unité est le résultat d’un parcours, d’une réflexion, d’1 équilibre avec une ferme qui elle aussi est unique. Il n’y a pas UNE méthanisation
3/C’est un peu comme l’agriculture, on peut essayer d’analyser ses principes, ses règles, la disséquer et l’évaluer ...

Mais on ne peut comprendre un système agricole que de l’intérieur de chaque ferme, avec son héritage, ses spécificités et la vision de ses agriculteurs

What is market access? Market access describes the possibility of and the extent to which an enterprise can sell their goods and services.

That's our discussion tomorrow on #TheAfricanFarmerSstories at 2pm WAT.
Access to markets can help businesses scale production and increase product quality. However, markets in developing countries are often fragmented, illiquid, and lack formal regulation.

Join us at 2pm WAT so we can discuss market access & the solutions
Reliable market access boosts productivity, increases incomes and strengthens food security.

Our guest will dissect this nightmare of some agro-entrepreneurs at 2pm WAT today. Don't miss this unmissable edition.

“The combination of digital technology and human creativity in deploying it will revolutionize life for Africa’s farmers by overcoming isolation, speeding up change, and taking success to scale.” — Kofi Annan, Sir Gordon Conway and Sam Dryden
Access to digital tech can make the distance b/w a remote farmer & the market even shorter than a straight line. Whereas many smallholders live several hours by foot from most markets, mobile platforms can share market price information/connect farmers to buyers in an instant.
Join us tomorrow @Agro_Centre at 2pm WAT as we recognize and celebrate the work of another agropreneur in the #AgTech space.

"Unconventional Mitigation: Carbon Dioxide Removal as a New Approach in EU Climate Policy" - my new SWP Research Paper together with @FelixSchenuit
A Thread on why a #ClimateNeutralEU is impossible without CDR, and what the EU should do about it
Trying to reach net zero emissions will lead to a certain level of residual ('hard to abate') emissions, which will need to be offset via CO2 removal options. This is an often overlooked aspect of global GHG mitigation pathways (below for 1.5C, according to #IPCC)
Since methane & nitrous oxide (mainly #agriculture) represent large share of residual emissions, scenarios achieve net zero GHG 15-20 years later than net zero CO2 (b/c of need for more CDR)
If you compare national GHG targets with global, 2067 is the benchmark, not 2050

Received a call from Mr @HardeepSPuri, Hon Min of State for Commerce and Industry, GOI today afternoon. Had a long discussion with him on the steps to Revive the Economy and submitted my inputs for his consideration. (1/n)
Following were my inputs:
1. All announcements made as part of #AtmaNirbharBharat Package were about liquidity infusion & making cash available through Financial Institutions. The focus on demand side is lacking. Govt has to put money in people's hands. (2/n)
2. Govt can categorize sectors into 'minor affected', 'medium affected' & 'severely affected'. Help can be extend to a particular sector either in the form of financial or taxation or others forms based on the category under which a sector falls. (3/n)

Hey everyone!
We are team @OrganicHoney4 Treasures (Rugare and Kholie), a #beekeeping company that specialises in production of honey, beeswax and value added hive products. Excited to be here! We will be talk about Beekeeping, honey, beeswax, business, innovation, & leadership.
Just a brief background about us, Everything we do is about bees, but we didn't start there. @OrganicHoney4 was a backyard project that started in the STF Gardens as a result of bee infestation in our bathroom drain.
For years we contracted exterminators to fumigate the invaders, yet the #bees came back! This cycle continued for years till the founders (Mr and Mrs Marufu) decided to find a way to live in harmony them. A bee specialist was hired to move the invaders to a backyard apiary.

Heads up: This is going to be a LONG thread, but a very important one if you're interested in the plight of our Black farmers and our small farmers in this country.

Black Farmers Matter!

I have a number of concerns re: @USDA's aid distribution & program implementation of the Coronavirus Food Assistance Program (CFAP). Chiefly, I'm concerned with how aid will be made available to minority farmers & small producers, particularly young & nontraditional farmers.

Common mistakes which onion farmers will always repeat each growing season and hitting that tonnage become an issue..


#ZeroHunger #ShameMKU #UsikuSacco #KOT
Origin of problems. Many farmers are reluctant when it come to pest and diseases management and you'll always find a seedling when being transplanted has thrips and some fungus already like downy mildew ...this is multiplication of fungus if transplanted in that state
Feeding program
40% of that fertilizer is usually lost to the environment.For "young onions" it is always advisable to cover the fertilizer with the soil. rem onions have shallow roots...but when they are at vegetative stage you can expose the fertilizer because of canopy formed

Student 1: For our lab meetings next quarter, we should try and prioritize reading research papers from BIPOC.

Student 2: ehhhh I don’t know think that’s a good idea because that’s not fair to researchers who do good work…

Student 3: *face palm* ... *exhale* …

Here’s a list of resources for Student 2.

They’re quotes from books/podcasts/articles/videos I've filed away over time. It’s not meant to be an exhaustive list.

I hope viewers provide more resources in the comments.

First, we have to question whether Science a meritocracy.

It is not. We say it is, maybe someday it will be, but academia is not a meritocracy. We gotta start there before anything else.

The @ciwem webinar on nature-based solutions and the ELMs scheme has begun! I'll live-tweet key points in this thread. #agriculture #elms
First of all, we're hearing from Gareth Morgan from the @SoilAssociation who is going to try discuss whether farming itself can be a nature-based solution #britishfarming
Gareth Morgan: There are lots of land-sparing options (margins/rewilding etc) whereby some areas cease farming whilst other areas are intensified. Gareth argues that this may sometimes be a slightly 'defeatist' approach and that farming should co-evolve with nature.
