#Vietnam Ca Mau province aims to produce 20 billion of #ShrimpSeed by 2020 #ShrimpFarming #aquaculture

The demand in shrimp seed is from 20 to 25 billion per year due to large aquaculture area in Ca Mau of more than 290,000 hectares. Currently, the shrimp seed production in the province reached about 10 billion, mostly black tiger shrimp seed. Thus, there is a lack of shrimp seed in the locality.

#Thailand #CPGroup to invest #FDI 2 billion USD to produce #Pork and #Chicken in the #Philippines

The hog and chicken production project of CP Group will be divided into 10 modules utilizing about 6,000 hectares per module for the production of corn and soybeans to be used in its feed production.

This would mean a huge market for the country’s corn farmers and the introduction of soybeans production to the Philippines, Piñol said.

An estimated 2,000 workers will be employed by the new CP Group operations.

Ferran Adrià con los tomates y pimientos de Almería
Que un chef sea capaz de mantener ante un auditorio de casi dos centenares de empresarios agrícolas una tensión dialéctica de más de 45 minutos sobre el tomate, el pimiento o la berenjena es meritorio. Que ese cocinero – que demuestra un conocimiento inusualmente alto, respecto al nivel del resto de su gremio, sobre lo que es una hortaliza o una fruta y sobre su universo agronómico y de significancia – sea a su vez el más reputado del mundo coloca en muy buen lugar a aquellos que han propiciado que viaje hasta Almería para impartir una magistral clase sobre los alimentos que hacen creíble la mejor cocina del planeta... #gastronomia #gastronomy #agricultura #agriculture #almería +elbulli foundation +Ferran Adrià +Parque Científico-Tecnológico de Almería (PITA) +Gastronomy of the World +Gastronomy, the Art and Science of Food +GastronomyLab +Instituto Chefs Especiais +Instituto Gastronómico Internaciona IGI Tucumán +Instituto Gastronomico La Toscana +INSTITUTO GASTRONOMICO GOURMET TX +Agricultores Por El Mundo +SAMA Servicios Agrícolas Manzano Alonso +Colegio Ingenieros Agrónomos de Andalucía +Colegio Ingenieros T.

The Use of Artificial Intelligence #AI in #ForestProduct Manufacturing: A Lowcost Improvement in #Competitiveness

Author: Francisco García Fernández

Journal: Industrial Engineering & Management

Publisher: OMICS International

Quality control of wood-based products before they are placed in the market, require a series of costly tests which often include long ageing periods. This often forces manufacturers to maintain a stock of product immobilized for long periods, which in the case of structural wood-based panels can exceed a month.

On the other hand, the wood product manufacturing industry is characterized by significant competition, high variability in customer's requirements, and the need to develop more and more price competitive products. These interrelated factors force manufacturers to continuously adjust, control and optimize their manufacturing parameters in order to develop products of higher quality that better fit the customer needs at a lower cost.

These characteristics of the industry make it very desirable to develop a high accuracy and reliable tool to obtain the final characteristics of a product by means of its manufacturing parameters, rather than testing after several weeks of manufacturing.

#PlantBreeding and #PlantGenetics - #CAST's New #AgInnovation Paper Now Available #CropTechnologies #BigData #TechnologiesTransfer

Many think it is time for another green revolution, one that utilizes technological innovation in smart, sustainable ways. Humans depend on plants for food, feed, fiber, and fuel—as well as less tangible aspects of life such as aesthetics and environmental stability. This paper is the first in a series that connects science and technology to agriculture, and it focuses on the critical importance of innovation in plant breeding to meet the challenge of providing food and nutritional security to humankind.
The ultimate goal of plant breeding is to develop improved crops through enhanced productivity, processing, marketing, and quality. The authors of this issue paper use science-based information and peer-review methods to establish the importance of plant breeding innovation, and they cover several key areas:
The science of plant breeding and genetics
The need for encouraging the next generation of scientists
The current role of government policy and regulations
The need for cooperation and collaboration at all levels, including the public-private nexus

#Wastewater cleaned thanks to a new #Adsorbent material made from #FruitPeels

Researchers from the University of Granada (UGR), and from the Center for Electrochemical Research and Technological Development (Centro de Investigación y Desarrollo Tecnológico en Electroquímica, CIDETEQ) and the Center of Engineering and Industrial Development (Centro de Ingeniería y Desarrollo Industrial, CIDESI), both in Mexico, have developed a process that allows to clean waters containing heavy metals and organic compounds considered pollutants, using a new adsorbent material made from the peels of fruits such as oranges and grapefruits.
