Haiti is a poor country but it is rich in natural resources.

The country grows some of the world's finest mangoes and it is one of the country's biggest exports after textiles.

It should have a thriving mango industry but it only exports 10 per cent of its crop because of poor infrastructure.

Al Jazeera's Rob Reynolds reports from Grand Croix, Haiti.

"THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST"....TO YOUR ROOTS.....

IT’S A FACT: Strong and full root development that penetrates deep into the soil leads to strong yields. For over 30 years, top producers from across the country have successfully relied upon Pro-Soil’s carbon-rich liquid fertilizer formulas to improve poor soil conditions, nutrient uptake and residue decompositionby stimulating beneficial microbial activity. Roots grow more vigorously, especially under stress. Crops finish stronger and earlier with less input, and dry down faster. Growers save time and money, earning more profit on every acre.

“This enhances yields more than anything I’ve done in my 40 years in Agriculture. My first 118 bushel field had pod clusters like grapes -- each one with four beans to a pod.”

Amy Lee                                                                                                                   


A new camera promises to radically change the way you take photos.

Lytro, a Silicon Valley startup, has produced a camera that lets you focus a picture after you take it--over and over again. 
The camera relies on innovative new technologies that use light fields to create photographs that are manipulable post-shot.

A light field is all the light traveling in every direction in through every part of space present in a scene. 
Using a light field sensor, the Lytro camera can capture the color, intensity and direction of the light in a photo. 
That means that users can refocus, and relight a picture after its been taken, using the light information gathered, changing the focal point of the image …

He had a yield of 7,500 tonnes this year from 3,041 trees.

THE WORLD MAY NEVER SAVOR HUNDREDS OF MANGO VARITIES THAT NEVER MAKE IT TO MARKET...

Lesser known mangoes may perish soon

LUCKNOW: The mango fortunes of Uttar Pradesh are dwindling; not in terms of numbers but diversity. 
Though UP farmers grow several varieties of the King of Fruits, only the prominent ones, like Dusseheri, Chausa, Langda and Lakhnauva Safeda, tickle taste buds of the public. 

The other mangoes, generally, perish without being savoured. 

Now, to salvage and conserve the endangered varieties of the fruit, farmers from the state's mango belt, Malihabad, have formed a society. 
The society includes 125 farmers from four villages of Malihabad - Kasmandi Kalan, Mohammadnagar, Sarsandi and Gopramau. 
About 30-odd farmers from this society have put up a mango show here where more than 300 endangered varieties are on the display. The show has been organized with the support of the Central Institute of Subtropical Horticulture (CISH).

There's `paan' mango, a heart-shaped variety. Then there is the …

Last decade, it was all about going green to differentiate your company in the hearts and minds of consumers. 
Today, it’s social entrepreneurship that’s the nice new thing that can make your company stand out.

The 2010 Edelman goodpurpose global study (PDF), found that 87 percent of American consumers expected businesses to consider societal interests at least as much as their own interests.
 And 62 percent said that it was no longer enough for corporations to give money to good causes; they needed to integrate those causes into their businesses.

Edelman cites declining trust that the government can solve our social issues as one explanation for this call to businesses and individuals to step up.
