From potatoes and tomatoes to peppers and grapes, nematodes are the cause of up to 50% of these #crop losses worldwide.

Faced with a lack of arable land, the Intha people at Inle Lake in Myanmar, came up with a suprising solution. By compressing water hyacinths, they build mats one-meter thick to cultivate vegetables. Floating on the nutrient-rich water, they grow tomatoes, beans, cucumbers and gourds. #extremfarming #cropscience

In Iceland's cold, dark winter, there are only four hours of daylight. But with geothermal power, a natural energy source, Icelandic farmers manage to produce a variety of crops, including tomatoes, cucumbers and flowers. #extremfarming #cropscience

For small #farmers like Nihat Yildirim, a #nematode infestation can rapidly threaten one’s economic existence. Thanks to a new #Bayer product called Velum™, farmers are gaining hope in the battle against these parasites. #cropscience #farming
