Moving agriculture into the 21st century: Dr. John Reganold at TEDxWSU 2014
Agriculture in the United States and many other countries is at a critical juncture. To feed a growing world population, producing adequate crop yields is vital but only one of four main goals that must be met for agriculture to be sustainable. The other three are enhancing the environment, making farming financially viable, and contributing to the well-being of farmers and their communities. Conventional farming systems have provided increasing sup-plies of food and other products, but often at the expense of the other three sustainability goals. Alternative systems, such as organic and integrated farming, better blend production, environment, and socio-economic objectives. Yet, no one of these systems alone will produce enough food to feed the planet. Rather, a blend of these innovative farming approaches is needed for future global food and ecosystem security. The slow expansion of such innovative farming systems in the United States and elsewhere is as much a policy and market problem as a science and technology problem. And you, as a consumer, play a vital role in the foods you choose to eat, which in turn can hasten implementation of more sustainable agricultural systems. Bio- Dr. John Reganold is a Regents Professor of Soil Science at Washington State University. He founded the first organic agriculture major at a university in the United States and one of the nation's largest certified organic teaching farms. His research has appeared in the world's top journals and documented the improved soil health, environmental quality, and economic impacts of organic and other innovative farms on four continents. Each year, thousands of college students learn from his two textbooks, Organic Agriculture: A Global Perspective and Natural Resource Conservation: Management for a Sustainable Future, now in its fourth edition.

Sustainable agriculture
Sustainable agriculture is the act of farming using principles of ecology, the study of relationships between organisms and their environment. The phrase was reportedly coined by Australian agricultural scientist Gordon McClymont. It has been defined as "an integrated system of plant and animal production practices having a site-specific application that will last over the long term" For Example: This video is targeted to blind users.

Consultation on the Food and Agriculture Business Principles, Brussels
The Consultation on the Food and Agriculture Business Principles (FAB Principles) was hosted by Paolo De Castro, Chair of the Committee on Agriculture and Rural Development of the European Parliament, in Brussels on 11 February 2014. To advance the positive impact that business can have on sustainable agriculture, the UN Global Compact is facilitating the development of voluntary FAB Principles in collaboration with the private sector, key civil society organizations and experts. The FAB Principles will articulate a common understanding on the resources, ecosystem services and socio-economic impacts needed to build resilience into agricultural supply systems and the markets that they serve. The Principles will support the objectives of relevant UN agencies by offering a basis for responsible businesses to align to the goals of the UN as articulated in the Rio+20 outcome document "The Future We Want", and provide a framework for furthering good practices, and for developing effective private and public sector policies and partnerships. The Principles, and knowledge arising from the process that generate them, will underpin the UN Global Compact's submission on the theme of 'Food Security and Nutrition' in the post-2015 development agenda.

Branding an App - Haller Farmers Web App | Pearlfisher
Our Pearlfisher professionals teamed up with creative software workshop Red Badger, to create a first-of-its-kind web app for Haller – a charity operating in Kenya that promotes economic development based on sustainable farming and environmental principles to help impoverished communities thrive. The Haller Farmers web app is game-changing website application designed with the end user in mind. Simple, graphic, visually rich and highly practical, the app is designed to provide hands-on, relevant solutions to local farmers – helping them live better, self-sustainable lives by transforming landscapes, growing food, improving water conservation and regenerating communities. Pearlfisher has also designed the Haller website which, like the Haller Farmers’ App, the website is rich with visual information but intuitive and easy to navigate. Bright colours and bold typography combine with interactive media and modular, hierarchical information design to achieve a balance of usability and emotional resonance, while ‘introductions’ to Haller farmers themselves bring the organisations’ work to life in a very human context. Website and a App design requires our team of brand design professionals to use their specialised skills to create top quality products that easily demonstrate the services the app and website provides.

Sustainable Intensification of Agricultural Systems
Can we sustainably intensify food production to meet the needs of a growing population with changing consumption patterns? On November 14, 2014, the Center for Integrated Agricultural Systems (http://www.cias.wisc.edu) addressed this question through a lecture with Dr. Jules Pretty, Professor of Environment and Society, University of Essex. In this presentation, Dr. Pretty analyzes recent evidence of the impacts of sustainable intensification in both developing and industrialized countries, and demonstrates how both yield and natural capital dividends can occur. He provides observations on policies and incentives necessary for the wider adoption of sustainable intensification. This lecture was possible thanks to support from the Lectures Committee General Fund. Cosponsors included the F.H. King Students for Sustainable Agriculture, Slow Food UW, Agroecology Program, Department of Agronomy, Department of Soil Science and Wisconsin Prevention of Obesity and Diabetes.

Organic Farming, Australia - Learn how to farm organically
Learn the secrets of Australia's Top Organic Farmers. Organic farming is currently receiving a lot of attention. Many farmers are keen to give organics a go but are unsure about the process involved and it's viability. Our one hour video hopes to demystify organic farming by bringing together some of Australia's top commercial organic and non-toxic farmers, and ask them how they manage their enterprises without the use of synthetic fertilizers or pesticides. Mark joined a tour led by Nuffield Farming Scholar Don MacFarlane which took in ten different properties including the Victorian Agricultural Research Centre. The great thing about the one hour video is that it allows the farmers involved to tell their own story on why they went organic, how they went about it and whether it has been a viable move. The video covers such diverse farming enterprises as organic cattle, sheep, poultry, pigs, grain, wine, fruit and vegetables. Some of the farms included in the video are: The Druce family farm "Green Grove" which produces it's own flour and confectionary at their Junee flourmill. Alan Druce has been organic since 1962 and the success they are having with their Green Grove Organics operation in Junee is a fine example to country towns everywhere of what can be done to bring life back into the country. The Statham Family property "Rosnay" near Canowindra which is setting up a grower-marketing group for organic wine, olives, potatoes and pastured poultry. The Statham's wish to form an organic farming community at Rosnay, with 20 acre blocks available for purchase. Nick and Fiona Chambers of 'Fernleigh Farms' near Daylesford, who farm organic vegetables, beef and grazing pigs. They have developed an export market to Japan. Fiona is a senior consultant with Rendell McGuckian Agricultural and Management Consultants and is involved in developing the organic dairy industry. The Johnson's of Wombat Wholefoods near Young show farmer's how even with limited acreage, non-toxic farming can be successful. Sam Johnson runs laying and meat chickens in movable pens, free range turkeys, pigs, cattle and fruit trees. Sam has an on property abattoir and direct markets his produce to consumers and restaurants. An amazing system whereby any waste from the abattoir is used to fertilize his fruit trees and any spoilt fruit is fed to his pigs. The Snowy Mountain Organic Dairy Farm near Cooryong. Stephen Whitstead was recently awarded Victorian Farmer of the year for his initiative in filling a niche market with low fat milk and cream. Weekly times Farmer of the year nominees Gerry and Terry Browning of Yarrawonga, who have had great success using organic principles to rotationally graze their 350 cow herd in a single mob. The video is full of good advice and good ideas. It is refreshing to hear farmers themselves talk passionately and succinctly about their operations.

Managing for Soil Health on an Organic Farm - A Farmer's Perspective
Presented by Klaas Martens, Lakeview Organic Grain, Penn Yan, NY View the webinar at http://conservationwebinars.net to earn CEUs. Our presenter, Klaas Martens, Penn Yan, NY, uses a diverse crop rotation to farm over 1,400 acres of organic corn, soybeans, small grains, a variety of peas, and cover crops. By adhering to one simple principle - every crop follows a suitable predecessor - Martens has improved soil health and function to cycle nutrients, increase water infiltration and availability, and eliminate both weed and disease pest problems. In this presentation, Martens will focus on the use of plants to change the soil and how soil biology can perform the services that are expected from tillage. He will also cover relay cropping, or starting one crop before the previous crop is harvested, and how this practice allows him to maintain a living root and cover on the soil all year. Can tillage be part of a soil health building system? Join the webinar to learn more.

Planting Hope - The Story of Sustainable Harvest International
In a poverty-stricken land where survival is a daily battle, 78 year-old farmer Don Cheyo departs from tradition to make a better life for his family. To do this, he must make the difficult transition from destructive agricultural techniques to more sustainable methods. With the help of his Field Trainer, Juan Carlos, and Sustainable Harvest International, Don Cheyo works to provide his family with organic fruits and vegetables that were previously non-existent in his rural village. They face a huge challenge: How do you go against an entire nation's culture? How do you lead the younger generation away from slash-and-burn farming when it's all they know? Planting Hope is a colorful look into the Honduran landscape, and a call for grassroots agricultural reform--for the sake of humanity and the environment at large.
