"HIGH SPEED TRANSIT ZONE" : DRONES ARE ABOUT TO BEGIN DELIVERING PRODUCE

Some of the biggest players in the world of commercial drones are drawing up plans for how to safely manage the growing flock of unmanned vehicles in what are quickly becoming crowded skies.




On Tuesday, Amazon.com Inc. laid out a proposal centered on slicing U.S. airspace into segments for different categories of unmanned aircraft, while keeping them all away from airplanes. 



The plan, described by Amazon’s top drone executive at a conference hosted by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, would include one slice — a “high-speed transit zone” from 200 feet to 400 feet above the ground — for advanced unmanned aircraft like the delivery drones Amazon is developing.





The Amazon AMZN, +1.47% proposal is part of a broader push to develop automated systems to maintain order among the growing number of drones zipping around U.S. skies. The Amazon vision incorporates much of a NASA plan for an automated drone-traffic management system, a project that has more than 100 other collabora…

Mango farmland triples in Argentina

July 30th, 2015





Argentina is not usually associated with mangoes, but growers in the country’s northern province of Jujuy are capitalizing on fast-growing demand.






In a release, the National Institute of Agricultural Technology (INTA) highlighted the fruit was generating an impact on the regional economy, with the provincial government offering support to promote the tropical fruit in a bid to raise profitability and decrease the market’s dependence on imports.












The northeastern part of Argentina is the nation’s most logical growing zone for subtropical and tropical fruit due to its geography and climate, offering a production alternative to vegetables and citrus.




“While this is an incipient crop in Jujuy, the surface area for mango cultivation has tripled,”said Aldo Arroyo, the INTA director for Yuto, Jujuy.




“Thanks to the Mango Promotion Plan implemented three years ago by the provincial government and the INTA, we have gone from 50 to 150 hectares with a production of 2,250 [metric] tons,…
