Participation Requested for Survey on Farmer Stress

Wed, 09/19/2018 - 00:31

@jlimel wrote:

Dear Farmer,

My name is Janna Imel and I am a graduate student at Virginia Commonwealth University where I am working toward my doctoral degree in Counseling Psychology. I am the daughter and granddaughter of farmers and grew up on my family farm in Kentucky, which is what ignited my passion for this specific research study. I am interested in knowing what types of stressors are unique to farmers, how American farmers cope with farm-related stressors, and how these stressors are associated with the mental and physical wellbeing of American farmers of all ages. I would greatly appreciate your assistance with my project.

You are invited to participate in this study, called “From Sunrise to Sunset: A Lifespan Approach to the Mental Health of America’s Farmers.” If you agree to participate you are asked to do the following:

  • Click the following link which will take you to the survey: https://redcap.vcu.edu/surveys/?s=JPX73C9L3X
  • Read through the “Informed Consent” at the start of the survey and click “Agree” if you wish to participate. You may also choose to fill out the “Raffle Entry and Research Results” form at the end of the survey if you would like to be entered into a raffle for 1 of 4 $50 gift cards and/or if you wish to receive a summary of the results from this study once it is completed. Please note that your “Raffle and Research Results” form will be separated from your survey responses once I receive the packet.

Please complete the survey by 12/1/18

Your experiences and opinions will provide much needed information about the working conditions of American farmers, as well as how being a farmer may be associated with changes in physical and mental health. Farmers are an underserved population and this research is the first step in being able to identify potential areas where farmers can be helped. Participation in this project is voluntary and your answers are completely anonymous. Each survey set is numbered, but numbers will not be linked to participant names and information, so this survey is completely confidential. It should take approximately 15 to 20 minutes of your time to complete the survey.

To express gratitude to everyone for completing surveys, I will conduct a drawing in which four participants will receive a $50 gift card. If you wish to participate in the drawing, please fill out the “Raffle and Research Results” form, where you will be able to write your name, phone number, and address. The form will be immediately separated from your survey upon receipt to ensure that there will be no way to link your name to your answers. If you know of other farmers who may be interested and willing to participate in this study, please provide them my contact information below and I will send them a survey either via mail or email. For each farmer you refer to the study, you will receive an additional entry into the raffle.

Please feel free to reach out to me by phone or email if you have any questions about the survey or study.

Sincerely,

Janna Imel, M.S.

Namma Farm - Quick Build Farm House

Sun, 09/16/2018 - 19:58

@Shankar61 wrote:

Dear Nature Lovers,
Recently I acquired a small piece of farm land in Tamil Nadu (Krishnagiri Dist). It is being developed by me as a Horticultural Garden. I thought of sharing my experiences with you. So here goes…

The Farm House
I reside almost 90 kms away from the land. Commuting up and down by bike (yes…I am a bike crazy farmer) in Bangalore traffic is a nightmare.
Therefore it was important to have a small farm house with a washroom, where I could rest and store a few things and maybe stay overnight if need be.
The dimensions decided was 12 ft width x 18 feet length, with a wall at 12 feet length to provide for a 6ft wide washroom in the rear.
After considering many options such as a conventional brick 'n mortar structure, log cabin, etc, I finally decided to build a room using prefab concrete slabs and pillars, and Coloured Metal Sheet roofing supported by metal trusses.
The prefab slabs and pillars are commonly used for making compound walls. I extended the idea to build a farm house.

The Walls: -
I ordered stronger concrete pillars with 12 mm iron rods instead of normal 8 mm rods. The pillars were a mix of 12 feet and 11 feet height, and placed in holes 3 feet deep, packed with concrete for support and stability.
The concrete slabs were 6 feet long and 1 feet wide with 5 mm metal reinforcement and brick-shaped design on one side. The slabs slide into slots in the pillars and are stacked one on top of the other, making the walls. Space has been left for doors.
The windows are concrete slabs with criss-cross pattern.
The entire structure i.e. walls without roof came up in just 5 days. 1 day for digging the holes to place the pillars, 2 days to erect the pillars and provideconcrete packing, and 2 days to fix thewalls.
The result matched my expectations.
The structure looks decent enough. Sadly I am unake to attach photos now due to some error. Will again try to…

Pros & Cons of pre-fab structure :

Pros: -

  1. Quick execution of work
  2. Eye-catching structure
  3. Strong enough as a farm house (unless someone purposely tries to damage it using hammer).
  4. Reasonable costing.
    Cons:-
  5. Due to mis-communication, the rooms became smaller by about 1.5ft as the installer erected the pillars considering the measurements as external rather than internal.
  6. It was first time experience for the installer and towards the completion of work, he wanted more money than he initially agreed to charge citing cost over-runs.
  7. Flooring, doors was not included in scope of work, and they remain pending and need the services of other tradesmen, i.e. mason for PCC floor, plumber for washroom fittings, carpenter for door frames and doors.
  8. Installer did a shoddy job of internal finishing of walls and curing of concrete.

Roofing:-
Initially I wanted to install Clay tiles (a.k.a. Mangalore tiles) on wooden reapers/trusses. Unfortunately, I could not find a roofer for the job. So I decided to use the services of a Welder to fix Metal coloured sheet roofing on Steel Truss.
To beat the heat, I added Gypsum Sheets as roof underlay.
The work was completed in about 8 working days instead of the planned 4 days . There were delays because the Welder had to hire 3 phase welding machine as our DG Set was shortinghis Single Phase Machine (We don’t have Electric Connection. It’s been applied for, but is dragging on…)
While workmanship was of reasonable quality, the Welder, who offered to procure the material, overcharged me for the same by providing inflated bills for material. His scam was busted and he reluctantly agreed to a mark-down. All the same, I ended up paying him about 20% more than what we agreed initially.
All in all, a bitter-sweet learning experience for me.

Next Steps :-

The House :
Water tank mounted on RCC Pillars - In progress
Flooring of house - In progress
Waste water line - In place
WC, Bath, Wash Basin- After flooring
Septic Tank - Yet to commence
Doors and Frames - Yet to commence
Electricity - Applied for

Phase 2 - Additional rooms for family. It may commence after a couple of months.

The Farm:
Planned to have High Density Taiwan Guava plantation, along with some Lemon, Pomegranate, Sapota.
Lots of flower plants and trees planned around the house.

  1. JCB hired for 4 days to dig pits. Work is almost complete.
  2. Taiwan Guava supplier identified but awaiting verifiable references
  3. Solar Pumping Solution - Reaching out to potential suppliers. Awaiting quotes.
  4. Drip Irrigation main lines in place. Needs to Be extended. Gate valves, sub-mains and laterals to be procured. Water Pond or Overhead Tank to be constructed…Evaluation of options is in progress
  5. Looking for Farm Yard Manure.
  6. Lastly, planning for a Dense Miyawaki Fruit Garden. Will take it up after other planation work iscomplete.
    So thats all for now.
    Hope you found this Post useful.
    Cheers, Happy Farming and God Bless

Farm Fencing options and cost for 10 acre land

Tue, 09/11/2018 - 14:01

@DeepakPrasanna wrote:

Dear Gurus

I’m looking for options for fencing my 10 acre land. Have received quotes for Solar Fencing, but a little skeptical with it. I want a rather safe and cost-effective fencing to be done to the farm. Can you please suggest me the best and cost effective methods other than live fencing?

My farm is located in Pallikonda, near Vellore in Tamilnadu. It is 25 kms from Vellore on the Chennai-Bangalore highway. Any references in this area is very much welcome.

The farm is bordered with general pathway on the entire length on one length and breadth, has other agricultural lands on the other sides. Wild Boars are the main menace and cattle/human trespassing also need to be contained.

Looking forward to your suggestions.
