"Patches", The Air Force C-123 that took the most enemy ground fire of any aircraft flying herbicide missions in Vietnam (U.S. Air force Photo) Agent Orange• Agent Orange was the code name for a herbicide developed for the military, primarily for use in tropical climates. Although the genesis of the product goes back to the 1940s, serious testing for military applications did not begin until the early 1960s.The purpose of the product was to deny an enemy cover and concealment in dense terrain by defoliating trees and shrubbery where the enemy could hide.• The product "Agent Orange" (a code name for the orange band that was used to mark the drums it was stored in, was principally effective against broad-leaf foliage, such as the dense jungle-like terrain found in Southeast Asia.The product was tested in Vietnam in the early 1960s, and brought into ever widening use during the height of the war (1967-68), though its use was diminished and eventually discontinued in 1971.• Agent Orange was a 50-50 mix of two chemicals, known conventionally as 2,4,D and 2,4,5,T. The combined product was mixed with kerosene or diesel fuel and dispersed by aircraft, vehicle, and hand spraying. An estimated 19 million gallons of Agent Orange were used in South Vietnam during the war.• The earliest health concerns about Agent Orange were about the products contamination with TCDD, or dioxin. TCDD is one of a family of dioxins, some found in nature, and are cousins of the dibenzofurans and pcbs.The TCDD found in Agent Orange is thought to be harmful to man. In laboratory tests on animals, TCDD has caused a wide variety of diseases, many of them fatal. TCDD is not found in nature, but rather is a man-made and always unwanted byproduct of the chemical manufacturing process. The Agent Orange used in Vietnam was later found to be extremely contaminated with TCDD. Dow and Monsanto were sued and paid claims.

THE POLK SYSTEMHistory of the SiloA long time ago, even before man had become accustomedto settled agricultural life, the primitive farmers wereguessing at the secret of the silo. A "pit" was first used as areceptacle for dry grain. The Greeks called such a pit "siros"and the Spanish have a word "ensilar" meaning to store grain ina pit. From these two words comes our term "ensilage." TheRoman farmers stored green forage in air-tight pits and fed the"silage" to their stock. That was two-thousand years ago.1780 - The Swedish pharmacist CW Scheele had already discovered lactic acid in 1780 and theconversion of carbohydrates into lactic acid had been known for ages in food preservation (eg Sauerkraut)or agriculture (silage fermentation). Because of the activity of Boehringer the German companyBoehringer-Ingelheim can be regarded as the pioneer of industrial biotechnology.
2000 BC - Derived from wild grasses, the oat progressed into todayscultivated plant. The oldest known oat grains were found in Egyptianremains from about 2000 BC. Scottish settlers introduced oats intoNorth America in the early 17th century. Before being used as a foodfor humans, oats were used as a livestock feed in the form ofgrain, pasture, hay, or silage.

Silage Pioneer® inoculant 11CFT is a revolutionary new corn- specific inoculant. It contains a novel strain of Lactobacillus Lactobacillus buchneri which produces fibre-digesting enzymes as it replicates in silage. 11CFT enhances aerobic stability, fibre digestibility, dry matter intake and animal performance.maBarn Silo

Natural Farming pursues harmony with nature based on the law of nature three spirits : water, air, heat two heats : heat from sky heat from ground three bodies : sky, earth, air Soil and philosophy ⁄ religion Soil has continuously influenced philosophy and religion throughout the world. For example, in ancient Japan, there were many spirits associated with soil (Chamberlain 1973). The famous Outer Shrine of Ise includes separate shrines (betsugu) to the soil and wind. From a modern (scientific) perspective, these shrines are the forerunners of soil science and meteorology.

1882-1955 Mokichi Okada 1930’s - K.N.F. Kyusei Nature Farming The main theme of Kyusei Nature Farming is to practice an IDEAL AGRICULTURE. TAKE OF THE EARTH ONLY WHAT YOU CAN RETURN AGAIN! The five principles of ideal agriculture as advocated by Kyusei Nature Farming are: 1. It produces safe and nutritious food to enhance human health. 2. It is economically and spiritually beneficial to both producers (farmers) and consumers. 3. It is sustainable and easily practiced by everyone. 4. It conserves our environment. 5. It produces sufficient food of high quality for an expanding world population. The philosophy and practice of Nature Farming arose from Mokichi Okadas research, in the 1930s and 1940s. He discovered that if our agricultural methods respect the soil and enhance its innate power, then our food will always be rich in natural energy and will nourish and support our health. Human beings can thrive only by living in harmony with Nature. Foreseeing the agricultural situation in 1935, Mokichi Okada presented the ideals of Kyusei Nature Farming, which have contributed significantly to the organic agriculture and nature farming movements in Japan today.In the 1980s, Prof. Dr. Teruo Higa introduced the concept of Effective Micro organisms(EM) to Kyusei Nature Farming. Regular scientific conferences on Nature Farming.
1905 to 1924 Indore Compost System•British botanist Sir Albert Howard is oftenreferred to as the father of modern organic agriculture.•He considered his methods “Nature Farming”, a completephiliosophy of natural farm management.•From 1905 to 1924, agricultural adviser in Bengal, India,where he documented traditional Indian farming practices,found them as superior to his conventional agriculture science.Developed “Indore Compost” system.•His research and further development of these methods isrecorded in his 1940 book, An Agricultural Testament, whichinfluenced many scientists and farmers of the day.
