My apologies, this is a long post, TL;DR is at the end
Disclaimer: I am not a scientist. This is a later draft which I have shortened and to an extent, dumbed down to be understood by a wider audience, motivated by my comment on the debate thread. The statements included have been researched thoroughly and there are links to data on which I provide my own analysis (some links are generic wiki pages but I cannot seem to link 30 odd years of learned experience and university level material very easily). My writing is based from over 15 years of working in the UK agricultural sector with time also spent working in New Zealand. I have also studied Geography, Geology and Biology at college, Agriculture + Land Management at foundation degree level and hold a degree in Architecture – I very much welcome discussion over the topics raised and for comments to provide alternative viewpoints, conclusions and sources but I do not wish for people to just tell me that ‘you’re wrong’. What this post describes, personally causes much concern that I feel others should learn to understand before forming their own opinion - UK agriculture is often unfairly judged through ignorance and misinformation. It is focused around a UK/Europe perspective and history but I’m sure there is evidence to suggest similar trends globally.
When trying to predict a future, it is wise to analyse the past and in this instance, to know an origin story, that of Society.
From a geological point of view, the beginning of human society happened yesterday, roughly 10,000 years ago. It is important to use this time scale because this is of a similar scale that we assess previous climate changes and extinction events. Appropriately, it is of a time scale that The Long Now project views humanity if we are to survive the next 10,000 years as a species.
Society arose from the fields and herds of our invention, Agriculture. Settling as communities and tribes to plant seed and tend to domesticated animals slowly created a surplus of food. This crucially meant, for example, out of a group of 50 adults, only 40 would need to farm, leaving the remaining 10 to learn, innovate, rule, and relax – the notion of Progress. For millennia this trend continued as agricultural processes benefited from the new ideas and tools that the non-farmers provided. Right... keep reading on reddit ➡
I was interested in robotic/automated farming ever since I saw the farm.bot back in 2017, many other companies like Iron Ox and Sustenir are also very similar in which their goal is to reduce waste (soil, land, water) and automate farming.
But since I only got into investing this year I have not been able to find a single robotic agriculture stock on the market, does anyone know of any? It would be really helpful and I'd like to see what the public companies are like, it seems like many of these private companies are being slow in their progress
edit: thank you to all the comments it’s surprising that these all exist i’ll be doing my research on them, prior to this post I was literally googling “robotic agriculture stocks” and never found any!
I have been waiting nonstop for some new content to Prison Architect... with so many ideas on how to make the game better. I just can't ignore the fact that a going green dlc is kinda bland to the context if the game.. I wish they listened to the community... I mean even modders could do this instead. We need more originality.
In my country, a certain percent of my taxes goes to funding animal agriculture through subsidies. I know probably most countries do this. But are there any countries where you can choose to not support animal agriculture with your taxmoney? Is this even the right sub for this?
It's not accurate. "Perpetual holocaust" is more accurate, so use that instead.
Joining army soon
Weird question but I like to eat what I grow. Am I allowed to grow potatoes on base when I join?
Also is it possible to have a chicken and rooster for egg laying purposes? Albeit, I'll only have 1 pair and make sure everything is tidy. Just wondering if this is possible?
Edit: On a side note. Any 12M or 68WF2 available for questions about the MOS?
Where, what kind of machinery is used if any, how efficient is it...just tell me something about it.
In twitter, Search Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin will suggest the Ministry of Agriculture of Japan.
This is a Japanese news. Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin brings traffics to the official website of the Ministry of Agriculture of Japan
The Ministry of Agriculture of Japan has a wiki for "How to make rice" ( お米 作り方)
Developers got free farming kits from Japan Agricultural Cooperatives and grew rice for this game.
I have to confirm this game is quite real on growing rice.
For example, you have to carry a barrel of excrement of goddess to make fertilizer.
Opps, I'm not sure why this post get 1k+ upvotes.
However, if you're interested in this game, you may read my short review.
Thanks for all awards! Thank you guys!
Medical cannabis is a fast growing field and researchers are delving into the implications of cannabis for medical purposes. Israel hosts one of the world's leading primary research facilities in the area of medical cannabis. I was the first scientist in Israel to study the plant-based science of medical cannabis. I and my team work to advance the academic and applied science of the cannabis plant. Their objective is to develop basic and practical knowledge of secondary metabolism in health-beneficial plants, including cannabis, to contribute to human health and food security, while protecting the environment.
Here are some links to some of my research:

Feel free to eat meat and dairy now. You can cite me as a reliable source because I told you what you wanted to hear. Also animals aren't actually killed for meat because they have no brain so don't worry.
Also I've done biology in high school so I'm a doctor and you guys can trust me.
