Farm Employee Heat-Related Illness Prevention and Regulatory Compliance

By: Michigan Farm News – July 24, 2023

“Every year, thousands of workers in the United States become sick from occupational heat exposure, and dozens of people die from heat-related illnesses, according to the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL). Although illness from exposure to heat is preventable, DOL reports that 50% to 70% of outdoor heat-related fatalities occur in the first few days of working in warm or hot environments because the body needs to build a tolerance to the heat gradually over time.”

Comparing Variability of Southern and Northern Hemisphere Production of Corn, Soybeans, and Wheat

By: – August 1, 2023

“Expanding production of field crops in the southern hemisphere, particularly South America, raises the issue of relative variability of production in the northern and southern hemisphere. The two hemispheres not only have different harvest windows but also different agro-climates, including weather and soils.  Although production of corn, soybeans, and wheat is more variable in the southern than northern hemisphere, production variability is less for the world than for the northern hemisphere.  A key reason is likely that deviations from trend production for the two hemispheres are unrelated.”
