MIP - The Mean for Evolution of Agriculture
In this episode you can see what MIP is, Integrated Pest Management and what are its advantages for the most diverse cultures. And nobody better than professor Pedro Takao Yamamoto, director of the Integrated Pest Management Laboratory of ESALQ - USP / Piracicaba to explain about the subject that, according to him, is the means for the evolution of agriculture, for offering the necessary tools for the adoption of sustainable cultivation practices.
A project that comes to stimulate and record the evolution of agroecological management on farms of the most varied cultures. Get to know Environmental Accounting in practice at the Caxambu and Aracaçu Farms. Located in Três Pontas, in the south of Minas Gerais, the farms, which produce specialty coffees, have a management guided by sustainability through the development of agro-ecological practices. We thank the brothers Chaves de Brito, traditional coffee growers who welcomed our project and made it possible to record this episode.
Stabilized Organic Compost
In this episode you can check an interview with the Libertas Consultoria team about the production of stabilized organic compost, obtained from the waste generated by the farm itself. Learn more about this process that guarantees environmental advantages such as improving soil quality, and economic advantages, by reducing the cost of fertilization.
Soil Life Diversity
Professor Dr. Fernando Andreote (ESALQ/USP)
In this episode you can check out another excerpt from an important lecture, this one presented by Prof. Dr. Fernando Andreote from the Soil Microbiology area at ESALQ / USP. Learn more about the contemporary view of living soil components, which consists of a diverse and complex biological system.
Non-Restrictive Agroecological Management
Antonio Teixeira (IBA) - Consultant
In this episode you can check a brief part from a lecture presented by Antônio Teixeira, Director of IBA. Learn more about the proposal for a non-restrictive agroecological management, whose focus is the soil. The objective is to keep cycles, flows and natural resources functioning in constant harmony with the demands of agricultural production.
Bacteria that Increase Sugarcane Productivity
Discover the project that proves efficiency by replacing some phosphate fertilizers with more sustainable strategies, which reduces the cost of producing sugarcane through biological gains.
Pest Control Selectivity
In this video, we talked to Ana Clara Ribeiro de Paiva, doctoral student at ESALQ / USP in Piracicaba / SP (Integrated Pest Management Laboratory), about her research project, whose topic is selectivity in pest control and its importance for the proper management of crops.
Sustainable Agriculture in Maize Production
In this video, we talked with the students of Profª Elke Cardoso, Ademir Durrer and Henrique Feiler, from ESALQ / USP in Piracicaba / SP (Department of Soil Science), about the thematic research project of Fapesp that they are developing in partnership with the Mokiti Okada Research Center (CPMO), in Ipeúna / SP. The subject is the use of sustainable agriculture and soil microbiota as allies for improvements in corn production.
Antonio Teixeira (IBA) - Consultant
In this video, consultant Antonio Teixeira, Executive Director of IBA, addresses some points about soil remineralization and the context in which it is located today in Brazil.
Profª Elke Cardoso (ESALQ/USP)
In this first video, we talked with Professor Elke Cardoso, from the USP campus of Piracicaba / SP (Department of Soil Science), about the benefits of soil microbiology and its direct relationship with the productivity and sustainability of agricultural production in the long run term.
