Farming Drives Toward ‘Precision Agriculture’ Technologies

By: Wired & Grist - May 14, 2022

Across Midwestern farms, if Girish Chowdhary has his way, farmers will someday release beagle-sized robots into their fields like a pack of hounds flushing pheasant. The robots, he says, will scurry in the cool shade beneath a wide diversity of plants, pulling weeds, planting cover crops, diagnosing plant infections, and gathering data to help farmers optimize their farms.

In California, the world’s largest legal weed market is going up in smoke

By: The Economist - May 14, 2022

The price has recovered somewhat; in April it was about $800 a pound. But the legal framework set up by Proposition 64 spells long-term trouble. It gave local municipalities the power to decide whether they would allow cannabis to be grown and sold. In their forthcoming book “Can Legal Weed Win?” two economists, Robin Goldstein and Daniel Sumner, argue that local control ensured that the illegal market would continue to flourish in places where legal weed was banned. Local control also helps explain why California lags behind nine states in weed shops per person. By comparing sales figures with drug-use surveys, Messrs Goldstein and Sumner estimate that only about 25% of the weed sold and consumed within California is legal. Many pot farmers in Humboldt say that some of their fellow growers have gone back underground to make a profit."

Governments seek options to reduce food price inflation

Little inflation relief in sight for California shoppers as meat, other food costs rise

By: McClatchy DC - May 13, 2022

Food prices, like that of any product, are largely driven by supply and demand. Supplies for some products are somewhat less than needed at the moment while demand is strong — a recipe for higher prices, Lee Schulz, associate professor of economics at Iowa State University, told The Bee.

Price increases for meats have several sources. Jayson Lusk, head of the agricultural economics department at Purdue University, wrote in November that the meat price jumps were “initially caused by disruptions in supply when packing plants shuttered after workers contracted COVID19. “

New research assesses the impact of COVID-19 related import facilitating and export restricting non-tariff measures (NTMs) on agricultural and food trade. Earlier studies concerned with the trade effects of COVID-19 have overlooked the differential impacts caused by these temporary trade measures. In a new article, "The Impact of COVID-19 Trade Measures on Agricultural and Food Trade," published in Applied Economic Perspectives & Policy, Sandro Steinbach and Soojung Ahn from the University of Connecticut show that export restricting NTMs achieved the set policy goals. At the same time, there is no evidence of long-term trade disruptions.

Where Does the U.S. Hemp Industry Go From Here?

By: Hemp Benchmarks & WSIL TV - May 11, 2022

Meanwhile, the hemp cannabinoid sector continues to be weighed down by what is actually in its supply chain. Tyler Mark, an associate professor at the University of Kentucky’s Agricultural Economics Department, noted the excess hemp biomass “still sitting on the market” from the past several years continues to depress prices.

Regarding the FDA, “something has to happen,” said Jane Kolodinsky, Associate Dean of Research at the University of Vermont’s College of Agriculture and Life Sciences. Hemp-derived CBD products, she told Hemp Benchmarks, could be classified by the federal government as GRAS, or Generally Regarded as Safe.

Green roofs are worth the cost for urban residents

Using Tweets to Predict Real-Time Food Shortages

By: Pennsylvania Ag Connection - May 5, 2022

The sentiments and emotions expressed in tweets on Twitter can be used in real time to assess where supply chain disruptions due to a pandemic, war or natural disaster may lead to food shortages, according to researchers at Penn State and the Hamad Bin Khalifa University in Qatar. They found that food security-related tweets that expressed anger, disgust or fear were strongly correlated with actual food insufficiency in certain U.S. states early in the COVID-19 pandemic.

In an analysis for the Oklahoma Policy Institute last month, Professor Brian Whitacre, an agricultural economics director at Oklahoma State University, said "Oklahoma has been behind the curve in establishing administrative infrastructure to increase access to broadband. Fortunately, federal American Rescue Plan Act funds can be directed toward that key infrastructure. Oklahoma has already set aside $2 million to build a broadband map that will highlight the areas lacking broadband availability at different speed thresholds. The map will include geocoded data for households, agricultural, and business structures, and the state will work with local providers and third-party speed tests to ensure that the map captures real-time, 'on-the-ground” broadband availability.'"

Data Training Webinar: Food Access Research Atlas & Food Environment Atlas

Date: Tuesday, May 24, 2022
Time: 1:00 PM ET
Duration: 1 hour
Speaker: Alana Rhone

Did you know that 4.7 million households in the U.S. did not have access to a vehicle and lived far from a food store in 2019?

USDA’s Economic Research Service (ERS) plays a leading role in Federal research on access to healthy and affordable food. Most U.S. households and individuals have access to a food store; however, limited access to food stores and an unhealthy food environment may impede the ability of some individuals to eat a healthy diet.

In this webinar, ERS Agricultural Economist Alana Rhone will highlight estimates from the Food Access Research Atlas (FARA) and Food Environment Atlas (FEA). She will demonstrate how users can map census tracts in the United States by their income status and food store accessibility to analyze food access by State and county, as well as by demographic information such as race and ethnicity. The webinar will also cover food environment factors to provide an overview of a community's ability to access healthy food and its success in doing so.

Lusk is a leader in the development of online dashboards that can track, report and visually represent the factors that lead to supply chain disruptions during national and global emergencies. His team was the first to create an online dashboard to estimate the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on a food supply chain when the team developed the Purdue Food and Agriculture Vulnerability Index in collaboration with Microsoft.

Joseph Balagtas, associate professor of agricultural economics at Purdue, served as a senior economist on the White House Council of Economic Advisers when the COVID-19 pandemic began. From that point to the end of Balagtas’ term, the council focused on the economic consequences of the pandemic and related supply chain issues.
