Currently, it's the beginning of corn planting season in Argentina. The ample rains can help corn seeds grow on the agricultural belt of the country, but they can also interfere with corn seeding.
On Sept. 26, 2012, the Rosario Grains Exchange estimated that the planting area of corn in Argentina might drop to 4 million ha. in 2012/13 due to the frequent rainfalls, while on Sept. 6, 2012, the Buenos Aires Cereals Exchange forecast that the corn planting area in Argentina would even lower to 3.4 million ha. in 2012/13, down 12% compared with that in 2011/12.
Although corn planting area is expected to drop, many forecasters still believe that the production of corn in Argentina will continue to increase in 2012/13 due to the high yield of GM corn.
Nowadays, many countries in South America continue to devote themselves to developing GM crops thanks to their high yield. Besides Argentina, Paraguay will boost GM cotton planting, and Uruguay approves the commercial launch of GM soybean, INTACTA RR2 PRO™, in the 2012/13 season. (1). According to some experts in Brazil, corn export volume in the 2012/13 marketing season is expected to increase by 1.6 million tonnes to 17. 1 million tonnes, higher than the previous forecast(2). Following the commercial approval of Monsanto's Bt cotton on July 14, 2012, Paraguayan government is adopting series of actions to boost GM cotton production(3). The President of Ecuador, Rafael Correa, described the ban of GM crops in the Constitution as a "mistake" in an interview and opened the door to a possible amendment.(4). Russia's suspending import of GM corn will not have an effect on the sales of Brazilian corn.(5). MAPA and IBAMA regulate aerial application of pesticides containing imidacloprid, thiamethoxam, clothianidin and fipronil on soybean.(6). After the ending of previous banana emergency plan, Ecuadorian government began to deliver fungicides to small producers on Sept. 10, 2012 to help growers to control black sigatoka.(7). On Sept. 18, 2012, Syngenta announced that it will launch its product for controlling potato disease in Brazil.(8). Aprosoja urged Brazilian farmers not to plant Monsanto's Intacta RR2Pro soybean in the growing season of 2012/13.(9). Dow AgroSciences plans to build a biotechnology research center in Argentina, so as to develop its corn seed business.(10). Bayer CropScience plans to invest a large sum of money in its seed R&D, especially the soybean seed R&D in Brazil.(11). The planting area of sunflower in Argentina will increase in 2012/13(12). Rhizobium japonicum plays an important role in decreasing the usage of nitrogen fertilizers and increasing the yield of soybean in Brazil.(13). The export volume of coffee in Brazil has dropped from Jan. to Sept. 2012, and is expected to drop further in the rest of 2012.(14). Brazil's cotton harvested area will decrease in 2012/13, and its cotton production will drop as well in the same period.Brazil corn exports to increase in 2012/13Paraguay to boost GM cotton production Ecuadorian president says constitutional GM ban is a "mistake" Russia's suspending import of GM corn unlikely to affect Brazil

"We build IoT infrastructure products - when you have to integrate different devices, different systems and cloud you have to build an application to do that but we eliminate the need to build an application. Our products can integrate any device, any system, any cloud regardless of protocol," explained Peter Jung, Chief Product Officer at Pulzze Systems, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity. With cloud bursting, the majority of the data can stay on premises while tapping into compute from public cloud providers, reducing risk and minimizing need to move large files. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Scott Jeschonek, Director of Product Management at Avere Systems, discussed the IT and busin...

Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...

The cloud promises new levels of agility and cost-savings for Big Data, data warehousing and analytics. But it’s challenging to understand all the options – from IaaS and PaaS to newer services like HaaS (Hadoop as a Service) and BDaaS (Big Data as a Service). In her session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Hannah Smalltree, a director at Cazena, provided an educational overview of emerging “as-a-service” options for Big Data in the cloud. This is critical background for IT and data professionals...

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

Fact is, enterprises have significant legacy voice infrastructure that’s costly to replace with pure IP solutions. How can we bring this analog infrastructure into our shiny new cloud applications? There are proven methods to bind both legacy voice applications and traditional PSTN audio into cloud-based applications and services at a carrier scale. Some of the most successful implementations leverage WebRTC, WebSockets, SIP and other open source technologies. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Da...

In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Claude Remillard, Principal Program Manager in Developer Division at Microsoft, contrasted how his team used config as code and immutable patterns for continuous delivery of microservices and apps to the cloud. He showed how the immutable patterns helps developers do away with most of the complexity of config as code-enabling scenarios such as rollback, zero downtime upgrades with far greater simplicity. He also demoed building immutable pipelines in the cloud ...

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
