Presentation Transcript

  1. Emerging Agribusiness Technologies

  2. Global Positioning(GPS) • Video: What's next for GPS in farm machinery? | Precision guidance content from Farm Industry News • John Deere AMS Overview Video – YouTube • 9530 Ride Along with AMS Technician Ryan Thrushman.wmv - YouTube

  3. GPS • Map fields to: • Improve product quality • Using chemicals more efficiently • Increase production efficiency • Conserve energy • Protect soil and groundwater

  4. Genetic engineering • Inserting a specific gene into the chromosome of an organism to develop a desired trait in the recipient organism • Genetic Engineering in California Agriculture – YouTube • Genetically Modified Foods: Potentially Dangerous - YouTube

  5. Genetic engineering • Transform a single gene • Faster production of new varieties • Transfer to a totally unrelated plant • Make hybrids from plants that cannot be cross-pollinated • Produce disease-resistant plants • Produce plants that are toxic to insects • Produce crops that are tolerant of herbicides

  6. Cloning • Creating genetically identical plants • What Are the Advantages of Cloning in Agriculture? | eHow.com • Plant Biotech | Plant Cloning – YouTube • How they cloned Dolly the sheep. - YouTube Clone Farm | VICE News | VICE • Top 15 Famous Animal Clonings! - YouTube

  7. Gender selection • Why? • Dairy farmers female for herd replacement • Beef farmers male for faster gain and better prices • Some fish female is better quality meat

  8. Production hormones • rbST in American Dairies - Bovine Growth Hormone – YouTube • Beef-animal growth hormone for faster weight gain • In feed • Just under the skin • Porcine somatotropin(PST)-enhance muscle growth in young pigs

  9. Integrated pest management Integrated Pest Management (IPM) Basics - YouTube • What is Integrated Pest Management (IPM)? – YouTube • Biological crop protection: 2 examples – YouTube • Parasitic Wasps & Aphids – YouTube • Nature's Perfect Predators- Praying Mantis – YouTube • Mantis slays Mouse - YouTube

  10. Integrated Pest Management • Using an array of methods to keep pest damage below economic levels • Cultural • Mechanical • Biological • Pesticides

  11. Animal research and human medicine • Swine • Steroids, anticoagulant, estrogen, insulin, heart valves, skin grafts • Xenotransplantation-organs between species • Mainly swine • Many others

  12. Animals of the future • Dairy • Higher production: genetic improvements • Beef • 50% increase in growth rate • Super Cow Creators - YouTube • Increase in twinning: selection and breeding • Swine • Bigger but leaner: hormones

  13. Animals of the future • Poultry • Faster gains, better feed efficiency • Sheep • Faster gaining • Catfish • Sexing: produce all males(grow faster) • Bees • Use of specific species for pollination

  14. Animals of the future • Transgenic-introduce genes of one species into another species • Cattle genes into pigs for less fat
