Organic Farming Seminars
As experts in organic farming, we share our knowledge acquired after years of research to educate farmers about how to get higher yield and healthy crop using only 100% organic agriculture inputs. We spread awareness about harms of using toxic chemical fertilizers and benefits of using eco-friendly agriculture inputs for soil, water and air. At Union Organics, we see soil as a living entity, thriving with millions of organisms and other organic matter that help plants grow naturally. We advise farmers to adapt innovative organic farming techniques as well as crop rotation methods to maintain the quality and integrity of the soil for years to come. When farmers use our eco-friendly agriculture inputs, they automatically become a part of our movement to reduce environmental pollution.
🍻💪Researchers from the University of California, Irvine report that climate change will lead to sharp declines in crop yields of barley, beer's main ingredient. Current levels of fossil fuel consumption and CO2 pollution will result in more weather extremes that will negatively impact the world’s beer basket. Parts of the world where barley is grown are projected to experience more frequent droughts and heat waves, causing declines in crop yields of 3-17%.
“Agriculture is a way of life. It means getting up every day and working hard to care for your livestock, not because it is your job, but because it is your lifestyle and you love it. Agriculture means instilling values of responsibility, faith, service and diligence into your children because you once learned these values through agriculture.” ⠀
Chris and Cas Derks own and manage Rolling Hills Angus in King City, Mo. As sixth and fifth-generation farmers, respectively, their desire to farm stems from the generations of producers before them, but also from their dream that one day their kids, Samuel, Gabriel and Madelyn, will take over the family farm. ⠀

Using drones to spread pesticides will allow farmers to use smaller amounts by charging the chemicals to attract to plants. Drones may be soon able to spray multiple acres without refilling and may soon become commercially viable. Drones will continue to revolutionize the agricultural industry well into the future.
