Multiple cropping could help feed the world
A way to grow more food on the same piece of land is for farmers to practice multiple cropping, defined as growing multiple crops sequentially, within a year. Multiple cropping can increase production and income and has additional benefits – increased crop diversity, improved functioning of agricultural systems, spare land for biodiversity or other uses and reduced use of inorganic fertiliser and pesticides. A CSIRO study found that increasing multiple cropping in suitable areas could lead to up to 30% more global food production without additional agricultural land. Many low- and middle-income countries in Africa, South America, and Asia have potential for increasing multiple cropping which could support food supply and food security https://research.csi

World’s first certified compostable and biodegradable pallet wrap.
Australian couple, Jordy and Julia Kay, launch world’s first certified compostable and biodegradable pallet wrap.Great Wrap – which is mostly made of corn starch and can be put into household compost – begins to break down in a compost pile after 180 days, but if it does end up in landfill it will break down in two to five years. ‘‘Our product isn’t too much more expensive than regular cling wrap, [and] you don’t have to feel guilty when you use it,’’ Mr Kay said.

Mask for Life
Melbourne: Businessman Adrian Critchlow to launch a mask for lifeThe masks feature a layer of activated carbon, originally designed for the British Army for chemical and biological protection, and a P2/N95 filter material originally designed for NASA. Mr Critchlow said instead of using plastic, like most PPE on the market, his masks used wool with the natural fibre also providing a “highly effective natural filtration with low breathing resistance”.Soon his ambition will become reality when what he calls “a mask for life” will start rolling off a production line in Melbourne.Source: The Australian 21/9/20
