Family Farm Profits Up in 2014 But Water/Soil Conservation is Key Reports OSU Extension on Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water

Family Farm Profits Up in 2014 But Water/Soil Conservation is Key Reports OSU Extension on Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water

Grants Pass, OR (PRWEB) August 14, 2014

There are more small family farms in the United States in 2014 than ever before and if well managed, they can be immensely profitable, says Oregon State University Farm Extension faculty member Maud Powell (citing the 2014 USDA Farm Census), speaking on the Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water radio show. The key to family farm profitability, according to Powell, is to maximize crop yield while conserving water and maintaining natural soil health. This can be economically achieved through cover crops, off-season niche crops, mulching, and increasing spoil organic content.

Maud Powell has an M.A. from Antioch University Seattle in Environment and Community Studies. A member of the Oregon State University Extension Faculty stationed at the Southern Oregon Research and Extension Center, Powell is also owner-operator of Wolf Gulch Farm. Powell was interviewed by Sharon Kleyne on August 11, 2014.

The globally syndicated Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water® radio show, with host Sharon Kleyne, is heard on VoiceAmerica and Apple iTunes. Kleyne is Founder of Bio Logic Aqua Research, a research, technology and product development center and the only company in the world specializing in fresh water, atmosphere and health. Natures Tears® EyeMist® is the Research Center’s signature products for dry eyes.

The primary considerations in intelligent farming, according to Powell, are water conservation and soil science. Powell and Kleyne agreed that the two are closely related. Healthy, nutritious, bio-active soils with high organic content retain far more water than soils with lower organic content. Crops grown in high organic soils require far less watering to achieve the same yield.

Soil organic content, Powell explains, is increased by not removing crop residue, mulching and off-season cover crops. Off season cover crops are especially important in states like Oregon, where Powell works. Oregon has very distinct seasons but the winters are normally not cold enough to freeze the ground. Cover crops hold the soil in place during the winter rainy season, prevent the heavy rains from leeching out nutrients and help maintain organic content. Common winter cover crops include various grasses, rye and oats. Intermingling legumes such as fava beans, clover or alfalfa alongside the grasses will improve the soil’s nitrogen content. Soil should always be kept covered with a mulch layer to inhibit water evaporation.

Organic content also creates heat as the material decomposes, Kleyne notes, which reduces the threat of soil freezing.

The suggested small farm practice, according to Powell, is to grow commodity crops in summer, such as hay, wheat, soy or corn, and “niche crops” in winter. Niche crops are small specialty crops sold directly to the local market. The purpose is to maintain organic content and maximize yield and profit between major harvests. The list of potential niche crops is endless and includes medicinal herbs, vegetables, heirloom crops and ethnic foods such as mung beans and chili peppers.

Niche crops may also be grown in greenhouses or in “high tunnels” in the off season, says Powell. A high tunnel is a temporary greenhouse or tent in which crops are planted directly into the ground and protected by the tent, which may be 100 feet long. Kleyne notes that some niche crops may also utilize the land underneath a forest canopy. Forest understory niche crops include morel mushrooms, hazelnuts, little princess pine for root beer, elderberries, blackberries, huckleberries, truffles, and much more.

Perennial commodity crops that are not replanted every year, such as grapes, apples, pears, walnuts or hay, do not require a winter cover crop but they will benefit from mulching and improvement of soil organic content.

David Aaron DeSoto | Texas Mediator | Business and Bankruptcy Law

Bellaire, TX (PRWEB) July 05, 2014

A lawyer whose representation of parties in matters involving bankruptcy, collections, and real-estate litigation regularly takes him all over Texas, David Aaron DeSoto recently announced his membership in the leading ADR web portal in an effort to shine a spotlight on his equally impressive alternative dispute resolution experience.

“I’m proud of the work I have done over the course of my career representing individuals and businesses in bankruptcy, collections, foreclosures, evictions and other litigation matters,” said David, “but I’ve also worked very hard to establish myself as a skilled and effective mediator. Joining enables our firm to make our services available to persons in need of a mediator with a background and years of experience in these areas. I have represented debtors, creditors and bankruptcy trustees, and this has allowed me to understand and appreciate the perspective and concerns that are unique to each side while remaining mindful of the larger context in which these conflicts arise.” David has authored over two dozen continuing legal education articles and believes that keeping pace with the changes in the law is an important component to his mediation practice. “Our firm is committed to keeping up with current trends in the law, and that means attending and speaking at continuing education programs on a regular basis. You need to keep pace with the trends and know what issues are novel and which ones are settled to remain effective.”

David has been practicing law for twenty years, focusing on bankruptcies, evictions, foreclosures, debt collection matters, general business litigation, and issues related to mortgage loan servicing. He is a Certified Mediator who has met the requirements of Chapter 154.052 (a) Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code, is credentialed by the Texas Mediator Credentialing Association and is also a member of the Houston Chapter of the Association for Conflict Resolution.

Celebrating Herbal Prescription Interaction Awareness Month, Dr Sanjay Jain Provides Tips for Alternative Herbal Remedies and Better Health

Celebrating Herbal Prescription Interaction Awareness Month, Dr Sanjay Jain Provides Tips for Alternative Herbal Remedies and Better Health

Dr Sanjay Jain, MD MBA

Washington, DC (PRWEB) July 31, 2014

Alternative medicine, using herbs and whole foods as a method of regaining and maintain health, is gaining popularity among people in a culture that’s been using chemical-laden prescription medications for decades. Many are taking a step back in time and embracing the benefits of the herbs that nature has so graciously provided.

“Mother Nature has given us some special plants that can be very helpful,” says Dr. Jain in his book Optimal Living 360: Smart Decision Making for a Balanced Life. “Aspirin comes from willow bark; taxol, a cancer drug, comes from the Pacific yew tree; and digitalis, a cardiac drug, is from the foxglove plant family.” He also notes that more than 7,000 compounds used in pharmaceuticals come from plants. On their own, most of the items from nature’s pharmacy provide helpful benefits, but without the negative side effect of modern medicine.

Herbals to Consider Using

Upon consultation with a medical professional, consider using these three, readily available herbals in daily life:

Aloe- This common house plant can be used topically on injured parts of the body to promote healing and reduce inflammation and pain. It’s best used in it’s most natural state; break off a piece, open it up and apply to the skin for fast relief.

Garlic- Don’t underestimate the power of garlic, or be put off by its potent smell. Their tiny bulbs pack a punch when it comes to nutrition, and is anecdotally said to lower levels of LDL cholesterol. Don’t be afraid to use garlic liberally; chop up several cloves to add to tomato-based sauces or stir-fries. For a quick dish that whips up easily, dice four medium size tomatoes, drizzle with 2 tablespoons of olive oil and top with a sea salt, chopped garlic, fresh basil and oregano to taste.

Green Tea- Known for it’s high levels of antioxidants, green tea is refreshing all year round. The plant sterols in the tea aid in reducing the risk of heart disease.

Before tossing prescription medicines out and buying a basket full of herbal supplements consider these tips from Dr. Jain:

Always check with a physician before consuming supplements. Both doctors advocating alternative medicine and those conventionally trained will be able to give advice on which supplements are harmful in combination with medications or existing health conditions.

Buy quality supplements. When it comes to health, money should never be the deciding factor. Choose a product that has a good reputation and comes from a manufacturer who guarantees standardized doses. If money is an issue, choose one high-quality item over multiple low-quality ones.

Choose single ingredient supplements. Multi-vitamins and herbal formulas boast many benefits, but whenever possible, choose supplements that contain just one herb rather than a whole array.

Buy dried herbs in small batches. Fresh herbs are always superior to dried, since the beneficial components deteriorate over time. For those who must buy dried herbs for teas and soups, buy small batches and smell them to make sure they’re still fragrant.

Using herbals as part of daily life and for medicinal purposes is a great way to stay healthy, courtesy of Mother Nature. As always, check with a medical professional before taking any supplements.
