    Sustainable Agriculture

    In the purview of agriculture and cultivation of crops, there is another important form of the same that is peculiarly significant to realize. This character of farming is called sustainable farming which can be loosely defined as the pattern of farming in an ecological way. So, here the focus is not just along the economic practicability of the crops but as well on using non-renewable resources efficiently, growing wholesome and nourishing foods and also bettering the quality of life of the farmers. you can collect moer information about sustainable Agriculture by following this link: http://bit.ly/1xHyc2j

    Sustainable Ag is something we all should be looking to improve on these days. I am still searching for something to help my soil better in NoTill. I have researched a product called SumaGreen and it seems that it has a lot of testing and good results. I am supposed to talk to a local guy who has used it and he seems to rave about it.

    In simplest terms, sustainable agriculture is the production of food, fiber, or other plant or animal products using farming techniques that protect the environment, public health, human communities, and animal welfare. Read more...

    Nitrogen fixation is key for the nutritional profile of organic plants. Check out this study before the class!

    This is the abstract from the study:
    Abstract
    Root nodule symbiosis enables nitrogen‐fixing bacteria to convert atmospheric nitrogen into a form that is directly available for plant growth. Biological nitrogen fixation provides a built‐in supply of nitrogen fertiliser for many legume crops such as peas, beans and clover. Legumes (Fabales) interact with single‐celled Gram‐negative bacteria, collectively termed rhizobia, whereas members of three other Rosid orders (Fagales, Cucurbitales and Rosales) interact with Gram‐positive filamentous actinobacteria of the genus Frankia. In legumes, infection proceeds through intercellular and trans‐cellular channels termed infection threads. At the same time, cells in the root cortex are induced to divide and generate the tissues of the nodule. Nitrogen fixation normally takes place within specialised bacteroid cells enclosed within organelle‐like cytoplasmic compartments termed symbiosomes. The anatomy and physiology of root nodules both reflect a high degree of structural and metabolic integration between plant and microbial symbionts.
