Crops

At Mighty Yields, we are committed to promoting sustainable agriculture in the regions we operate and are continuously expanding our farmland base, enrolling more farmers to increase the extent of operations and the variety of crops. Each year, we practice crop rotation to maintain disease-free crops and uphold our quality standards by refraining from the use of any chemicals, pesticides, or herbicides.

Wheat

Wheat is the most widely grown crop in the world and provides 20% of the daily protein and of the food calories for 4.5 billion people. It is the second most important food crop in developing countries after rice. In recent years, wheat production levels have not satisfied demand, triggering price instability and hunger riots. With a predicted world population of 9 billion in 2050, the demand for wheat is expected to increase by 60%. To meet this demand, annual wheat yield increases must rise from the current level of below 1% to at least 1.6%.

Growth and Soil type:

Wheat growth can be broadly divided into several different stages: germination, tillering, stem elongation, boot, flowering, and it takes 100-120 day to ripening. Wheat prefers a nearly neutral soil (about 6.4 pH) and does best with a cool, moist growing season followed by warm, dry weather for ripening. It grows best in alluvial clayey soil, which can retain water, moisture.

Climate

It grows well in a cool, moist climate and ripens in a warm, dry climate. The cool winters and the hot summers are conducive to a good crop. A cloudless sky having bright sunshine during ripening and harvesting periods will make better quality wheat.

Regions

Wheat is the main winter crop we grow in our Western Australia with sowing starting in autumn and harvesting, depending on seasonal conditions, occurring in spring and summer. Regions Northern China, Ukraine, Russia, Canada, Israel, and the USA include our major wheat producing areas.

Corn

Corn is one of the most cultivated grain in the world and has played a very important role in human history — mostly as a food source for humans and animals. It is a surprising source of several vitamins, including folic acid, niacin, and vitamin C. In terms of global production, corn is the third most important food crop after rice and wheat. Demand for Corn is growing substantially as both fresh and processed food. The production of corn must be raised to 111% to meet the world’s food needs of 2050.

Growth and Soil type

Most varieties of corn require 100 to 140 days from seeding to full ripeness of the kernels though some kinds will ripen in as little as 100 days. Corn grows well on a range of soils but does best on deep, well-drained, fertile soils that are slightly acid to neutral with a pH(water) 5.5 to 7.0. Heavier soil textures suit the crop better than lighter sandy soils.

Climate

It is a summer-growing, multipurpose cereal crop that needs warm (but not hot) daytime temperatures and mild nights to maximize yield. It grows well in tropical, subtropical and temperate climates.

Regions

Corn is one of the widely cultivated crops in all the regions we operate and a greater weight of corn is produced every year. Riverina and Gippsland in Australia and Heilongjiang and Henan in China are our major corn producing regions followed by the USA, Israel, and Brazil.

Paddy

Rice is the most important human food crop in the world, directly feeding more people than any other crop. As rice is produced in a wide range of locations and under a variety of climatic conditions, from the wettest areas in the world to the driest deserts. There are over 144 million rice farms worldwide on a harvested area of about 158 million hectares, feeding nearly half of the world’s population – more than 4 billion people every day. By 2050, the production of rice has to be increased by 48% to meet the world increasing demand.

Growth and Soil type

Depending on the variety, a paddy crop usually reaches maturity at around 105–150 days after crop establishment. Harvesting activities include cutting, stacking, handling, threshing, cleaning, and hauling. From the podzolic alluvium to the impermeable heavy clay, paddy is grown in a wide range of soil. Fertile riverine alluvial soil and clayey loam soil in monsoon land are considered to be the best for rice cultivation as water retention capacity of these soil is very high. Rice is also grown in saline areas of the deltaic region. Rice cultivation needs high fertilizer appli­cation.

Climate

Paddy is a tropical crop and grown where the average temperature during the growing season is between 20°C and 27°C. Abundant sunshine is essential during its four months of growth. The minimum temperature should not go below 15°C as germination cannot take place below that temperature.

Regions

More than any food crop else in the world, rice dominates overall crop production and overall food consumption. So we are increasing the area of paddy cultivation year after year and spreading all over China, Australia, and India.

Sun Flower

Sunflower is one of the most important oilseed crops and a major source of vegetable oil in the world. It contains valuable edible oil that contains more Vitamin E than any other vegetable oil and sunflower oil is the most used oil in food products. The seeds of confection varieties of sunflower are also sold for human consumption and birdseed. Global seed production has grown steadily in the last 25 years. However, needed to be increased to 118%, expecting a total world output close to 60 million tons by 2050.

Growth and Soil type

Sunflower has the ability to perform in diverse agro-climatic and soil conditions and takes very short duration 80-115 days to grow. The incidence of pests and diseases on sunflower crop is also easily manageable with timely preventive and curative measures. Sunflowers have long tap roots that need to stretch out, so the plants prefer well-dug, loose, well-draining soil. Though they’re not too fussy, sunflowers thrive in slightly acidic to somewhat alkaline soil (pH 6.0 to 7.5)

Climate

Sunflowers are full sun plants that only thrive in environments in which they are provided six or more hours of direct sunshine per day. Sunflowers thrive in warmer weather and climates. They are known for their hardiness and the ability to survive extreme heat; however, the optimal temperatures for growing sunflowers is between 70 and 78 degrees Fahrenheit, with soil temperatures of at least 55 to 60 degrees when the seeds are sown.

Regions

Sunflower is an important commercial crop, grown for its edible oil and fruits both for human and livestock consumption and a major crop in our agricultural portfolio. Northern Australia, Russia and Ukraine, and our major sunflower-producing regions.

Barley

Barley, cereal plant of the grass family Poaceae and its edible grain. Grown in a variety of environments, barley is the fourth largest grain crop globally, after wheat, rice, and corn. It is commonly used in bread, soups, stews, and health products, though it is primarily grown as animal fodder and as a source of malt for alcoholic beverages, especially beer. Globally, barley is the largest component of coarse grains used as animal feed. By 2050, world barley production will have to increase by 54% over the level in the year 2000 to meet projected demand for food, feed, and industrial purposes

Growth and Soil type

Harvesting time of barley is depending on the time of sowing, cropping period and maturity. Generally, the maturity period of barley varies from 90 to 110 days. Barley is a drought-resistant crop and requires 390 to 430 mm of rainfall for optimum yield. Maximum water use will occur for 21 to 28 days. Barley can be grown on a wide range of soil types; ranging from heavy clays to light or sandy loam soils. It grows well on fertile, deep loam soils with a pH of 6 to 7, 5.

Climate

Barley can be grown as summer crop as well as a winter crop, requires a temperature of 12°C to 16°C at the growing stage and about 30°C to 32 °C at maturity. Barley crop is very sensitive to frost at any stage of its growth but has very good tolerance to drought conditions

Regions

Barley is grown for human consumption, malting and animal feed all most all the drought conditioned countries. Our major produce of Barley is from the Western and Northern regions of Australia followed by Russia and Canada.
