  • Economist says it’s not all bad news if Germany resumes pork exports
    by Meghan Grebner on October 20, 2020 at 9:02 pm

    There are reports that some Asian countries are considering resuming pork imports from Germany.  Several Asian countries halted pork trade with Germany following the detection of African swine fever in its wild boar population last month.

    Farmer’s Business Network (FBN) is launching its own on-farm research and development network for biological soil health and crop protection products. FBN will coordinate real-world testing of biologicals on FBN member farms, according to Matt Meisner, Vice President of R&D for FBN. “Products that perform well based on the unbiased, clean real-world data are products that we’ll look to potentially commercialize through the FBN direct platform,” Meisner told Brownfield Ag News. Biological products drive long-term, sustainable and profitable farming practices, says Meisner, adding that FBN’s approach results in testing on a large scale and across a diverse geographical footprint. ...     &nbs […]
