外围体育投注I have a plot on a farm that has undergone heavy pesticides/herbicide use. What management should I do to recuperate and to improve the soil and if possibly, leach the chemicals out of the soil?

外围体育投注If possible I would like to know remedies that can be done locally. I don't know but maybe by using cover crop, mulching, manure/compost, or something.

外围体育投注Thank you very much.

So, this is less of a 'post' and more just me being curious and having a somewhat specific question.

I am aware that there are a few downsides to indoor farming, especially under artificial light. Initial construction and ongoing operation/energy costs probably being the most notable. But let’s ignore that for now and assume they are non-issues at some point in the future.

外围体育投注I was wondering just how much more efficient this type of farming could be on average in terms of crop yield per cubic meter in comparison to the yield per square meter of traditional farming. Obviously different crops will benefit differently from verticality and I don’t expect any highly accurate numbers from mere estimates so an average between a few of the most grown crops would make a good enough rough approximation to satisfy my curiosity.

Assuming we’re talking about some time in the future where this is actually viable through automation and cheaper energy, and lab-grown meat could quite possibly have become commonplace, we can probably even ignore corn used for fodder which as far as I am aware makes up quite a large part of the crops we grow today. I just got curious about how much we could improve our food output through more efficient use of space and optimal growing conditions. But no amount of google-fu got me any actual percentage of what yield increase might be expected for food crops on average - except for a few very specific plants, cherrypicked because they’re more or less ideal for it. And even then actual numbers or just estimates are difficult or impossible to find.

I’m not sure if anyone here can even help me with this as I doubt many would hypothesize about this kind of stuff, let alone try to get some numbers on it, but I guess it’s worth a shot and asking is free.

Hi all,

外围体育投注This past year I performed a study about IPM adoption in my state as part of my AP Research course. I had somewhat forgotten about the accompanying paper until I received my score just a few days ago. I re-read the results of my study and am now interested in discussing the topic further. Basically, I'm curious to hear Reddit's thoughts on IPM adoption in your own region, or anything about the strategies under the umbrella of IPM (crop scouting included).

外围体育投注Thanks in advance
