Apiculteurs et producteurs de bleuets à couteaux tirés

Apiculteurs et producteurs de bleuets à couteaux tirés | Bisaillon Ressources : News ( corn maize ethanol DDG soybean soymeal wheat livestock beef pigs canadian dollar) | Scoop.it

Le Syndicat des producteurs de bleuets du Québec (SPBQ) et la Fédération des apiculteurs du Québec (FAQ) se tournent le dos. Au cœur du litige, le prix de location des ruches nécessaires à la pollinisation des bleuetières. 


 Les deux organisations s’étaient pourtant entendues sur un tarif de location à 150 $ la ruche. 


Mais voilà que la baisse de prix des bleuets incite les producteurs à donner moins pour la location de ruches, soit 120 $. Les apiculteurs grognent et la Fédération recommande à ses membres de maintenir le tarif de 150 $. 


 Les producteurs de bleuets sauvages ont cependant une carte dans leur manche : l’opportunité de louer des ruches provenant de l’Ontario à 120 $. Or, plusieurs ruches ontariennes sont parasitées par le petit coléoptère de la ruche. 


Le Québec est toujours considéré comme exempt de cet insecte ravageur.

Local farmers have been reacting to a letter Senator Ben Sasse sent to the Trump Administration, warning a trade war with Mexico could be devastating for Nebraska growers.

Amid recent politics and tensions with Mexico, President Donald Trump has talked about renegotiating the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) or simply getting rid of it.

Bunge CEO Says US Corn Still a Better Deal for Mexico

Bunge CEO Says US Corn Still a Better Deal for Mexico | Bisaillon Ressources : News ( corn maize ethanol DDG soybean soymeal wheat livestock beef pigs canadian dollar) | Scoop.it

A key corporate leader in the grain trade told analysts this week he doesn’t think Mexico would start heavily buying corn from South America simply because the U.S. offers a better deal. Still, Mexican officials are starting to better gauge the possibility of buying more agricultural products from South America and Argentinian officials are encouraging those conversations. Soren Schroder, chief executive officer for Bunge Limited, told analysts Wednesday in a quarterly earnings call that it would require a price shift in Brazil and Argentina to significantly change the market flow of exports. He noted, “the extent to which there is any switching that takes place to South America, frankly, it all depends on price. And at the moment, it doesn’t work.”

United States Drought Monitor > February 14, 2017 | Bisaillon Ressources : News ( corn maize ethanol DDG soybean soymeal wheat livestock beef pigs canadian dollar) | Scoop.it
During this U.S. Drought Monitor week, storms continued to impact the west, including parts of California, bringing more heavy precipitation to much of the region, as snow packs continued to increase and reservoirs continued to fill. Fortunately a respite from the storms came toward the latter half of the week. On the other side of the country, a strong low pressure system impacted much of the eastern United States, bringing heavy snowfall to central and northern New England on the 9th. Another nor’easter impacted the area on the 12th-13th. Meanwhile, an upper-level low over northern Mexico, along with a surface frontal boundary, resulted in rain and mountain snow from Arizona to western Texas. Precipitation spread across Texas to Oklahoma on the 12th-13th. Not all regions received rainfall. Much of the southeast continued to receive below-normal precipitation while record high temperatures spread across the south during the 11th-12th.
