    Dear DAF,

    Last month I could visit one of the "Globally Important Agricultural Heritage System"  (GIAHS) sites in NE Kyushu, Japan (Kunisaki GIAHS site). We met shitake mushroom farmers who plant and grow oaks using a coppice system, to produce logs on which the shitake mushrooms are raised. The mushrooms can be eaten fresh (after cooking), but most are dried, and the drying machines mainly run on kerosene. Not all parts of the present system are integrated as part of a local production cycle. Kerosene is often used in rural Japan, and could be one of the forest products of Japan. I should find out more about this.

    Thanks for posting, and best wishes for the New Year!

    Peter (Research Co-op)

    Favourite scientific journals at the moment: Agricultural Sciences (AS) journal /SCIRP and Occupational Diseases and Environmental Medicine (ODEM) journal /SCIRP, Wuhan PR China.  Warm welcome to Skye Blue Internet to their desk editor for submissions Ms. Cindy Zhang, Wuhan PR China.

    We are currently investigating the possibilities of fielding water hyacinth as fodder in the Arctic Rainforest AEZ in the Lower Mainland of British Columbia Canada for ensilage processing to beef feedlot cattle. A new feature for our LFS or Land Food System here in Canada. Perhaps appearing as a new CHAP. in our monograph series editions titled: ''Lignocellulosic Biotechnology and Related Research.  Related Research for Feed, Food and Energy.''

    Another research note could possibly be sent to Springer-Verlag where Skye Blue has previously published for the invited submission in their Marine Biology journal on the very exciting topic of salmonid nutrition, metabolism, health and welfare in aquaponics culture together with seagrass, a novel potentially promising fodder for feeding dairy livestock in the LFS of British Columbia Canada.

    A third project for possible publication is the novel use of functional feeding ingredients with swine or hogs including: functional amino acids for growth and development and improved immunity against infection and morbidity an alternative to using now banned growth hormones and also the current use of antibiotics; there are also exciting findings by researchers in the field regards heat damaged, extruded pelleted feeds for swine in their gut improving immunogeneisis or immunity; ''Greens'' are a new possible growth area in research also regards immunity and there are other issues in future with plant fodder compounds that address for e. g. stress and even cardonemia welfare for animals; of course zoonoses a major issue in public health might be partially addressed by these animal management measures including the recent health issue of ASFV which led to decimation/culling, e. g. large nos. of swine in Vietnam and the Philippines.

    Welcome to CP BIO, Henan, PR China and their ranching enterprise with swine included and their biochemistry division and contact there: Ms. Bailey Zhang.

    Forgot something to the above, a new also very exciting research area of inquiry is the nascent field of peptide technology research with both animal proteins and vegetable sources implicating both protein and complex carbohydrate metabolism and also the known field of enzyme technology and TGLs for immune health or balance also continuingly investigated with human subjects in studies.
