AgriSea NZ Ltd is a multi award winning family owned and operated, sustainable NZ company, brewing nutrient applications from NZ seaweed, for soil plant and animal heath. AgriSea is committed to the NZ farming community and healthy functioning soil. They have recently embarked on a 3 year research programme to track the transition of high input chemical farms to biological farming methods, the end results of which are intended to produce safe pathways for farmers to transition and further proof of the efficacy of their products. AgriSea’s products grew from the early research of directors Jill Bradley and Keith Atwood. Travel and research confirmed to them that seaweed held enormous potential for farm health and productivity. French vineyards on the coast, known as the ‘Golden Belt’, have used seaweed fertilizers for centuries and are producing great wines. Research has been at the heart of the company since its inception in 1996, starting with research into the efficacy of AgriSea products, originally for kiwifruit and subsequently moving into viticulture. Fast forward 20 years and AgriSea have an impressive array of products for the horticulture, agriculture, viticulture, bee keeping and equestrian industries. Their viticulture products are being used by 60% of vineyards in NZ. In the 90’s Europe wanted sustainable, low residue wines and NZ viticulturalists were quick to respond to market demands and get onboard with more biological farming methods. “We work closely with our farmers and we listen to them,” says Jill. A couple of newer products in their range were in direct response to farmer requests, for instance a seaweed salt lick for stock and a solid dry product. Sheep and beef farmers in areas with difficult access and some simply as a preference were wanting a solid product for application. Working with Blue Pacific Minerals, AgriSea developed a liquid seaweed concentrate that is infused into a zealite base. The seaweed concentrate takes 3 months to brew and is stirred by hand with paddles, every day. Research has been an important component for AgriSea – providing proof of the product efficacy to the end user. “Our responsibility is to do the research to show the efficacy of our product, if we don’t add value to a farming or growing business, we won’t sell to them”, says Jill. Up until now this research has been outsourced to organisations like the Cawthron Institute and Scion, but times are changing. Jill speaks of ‘biological farming’ as a continuum – high fertiliser input farming systems at one end and the biodynamic/organic systems at the other, with the biological farming system in the middle. She wants to see the significant movement from the high chemical input farming systems towards the middle ground. The benefits are healthier stock, healthier pasture and healthier soils that are better able to recover from drought and a better bottom line for farmers. About a year ago the family sat down and thought about these goals and made the decision to ‘put their money where their mouth was’. While the majority of research has been conducted by external parties to date, AgriSea has committed to their own 3 year research project – the Soils First Production System. The research aims to develop a system and track the transition of 6 high fertiliser input farms to biological farming methods over 3 years. The goal is to provide safe and effective pathways for farmers to transition to biological farming methods and also provide further proof of the efficacy of the AgriSea products.

What is RURAL FREE DELIVERY? What does RURAL FREE DELIVERY mean? RURAL FREE DELIVERY meaning - RURAL FREE DELIVERY definition - RURAL FREE DELIVERY explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Rural Free Delivery (RFD) is a service which began in the United States in the late 19th century, to deliver mail directly to rural farm families. Prior to RFD, individuals living in more remote homesteads had to pick up mail themselves at sometimes distant post offices or pay private carriers for delivery. The proposal to offer free rural delivery was not universally embraced. Private carriers and local shopkeepers feared a loss of business. The postal service began experiments with Rural Free Delivery as early as 1890. However, it was not until 1893, when Georgia Congressman Thomas E. Watson pushed through legislation, that the practice was mandated.[1] However, universal implementation was slow; RFD was not adopted generally in the United States Post Office until 1902.[2] The rural delivery service uses a network of rural routes traveled by carriers to deliver and pick up mail to and from roadside mailboxes.[3] Until the late 19th century, residents of rural areas had to either travel to a distant post office to pick up their mail, or else pay for delivery by a private carrier. Postmaster General John Wanamaker was ardently in favor of Rural Free Delivery (RFD),[4] as it was originally called, along with many thousands of Americans living in rural communities who wanted to send and receive mail inexpensively. However, the adoption of a nationwide RFD system had many opponents. Some were simply opposed to the cost of the service. Private express carriers thought inexpensive rural mail delivery would eliminate their business, and many town merchants worried the service would reduce farm families' weekly visits to town to obtain goods and merchandise, or that mail order merchants selling through catalogs, such as Sears, Roebuck and Company might present significant competition.[1][5] Much support for the introduction of a nationwide rural mail delivery service came from The National Grange of the Order of Patrons of Husbandry, the nation's oldest agricultural organization.[4] Fayette County in east-central Indiana may be the birthplace of Rural Free Delivery. Milton Trusler, a leading farmer in the county, began advocating the idea in 1880; as the president of the Indiana Grange, he spoke to farmers statewide frequently over the following sixteen years.[6] The Post Office Department first experimented with the idea of rural mail delivery on October 1, 1891 to determine the viability of RFD. They began with five routes covering ten miles, 33 years after free delivery in cities had begun. The first routes to receive RFD during its experimental phase were in Jefferson County, West Virginia, near Charles Town, Halltown, and Uvilla.[7] Legislation by U.S. Congressman Thomas E. Watson of Georgia mandated the practice, and RFD finally became an official service in 1896.[1] That year, 82 rural routes were put into operation. A massive undertaking, nationwide RFD service took several years to implement, and remains the "biggest and most expensive endeavor"[8] ever instituted by the U.S. postal service. The service has grown steadily. By 1901, the mileage had increased to over 100,000; the cost was $1,750,321 and over 37,000 carriers were employed. In 1910 the mileage was 993,068; cost $36,915,000; carriers 40,997. In 1913 came the introduction of parcel post delivery, which caused another boom in rural deliveries. Parcel post service allowed the distribution of national newspapers and magazines, and was responsible for millions of dollars of sales in mail-order merchandise to customers in rural areas. In 1930 there were 43,278 rural routes serving about 6,875,321 families—that is about 25,471,735 persons. The cost was $106,338,341.[9] In 1916, the Rural Post "Good" Roads Act authorized federal funds for rural post roads.

The term "mail carrier" came to be used as a gender-neutral substitute for "mailman" soon after women began performing the job. In the Royal Mail, the official name changed from "letter carrier" to "postman" in 1883, and "postwoman" has also been used for many years... United States In the United States, the official label for a mail carrier is "letter carrier". There are three types of letter carriers: city letter carriers, who are represented by the National Association of Letter Carriers; Rural Letter Carrier, who are represented by the National Rural Letter Carriers' Association; and Highway Contract Route carriers, who are independent contractors. While union membership is voluntary, city carriers are organized near 100% nationally. City carriers are paid hourly with the potential for overtime. City Carriers are also subject to "pivoting" on a daily basis. Pivoting (when a Carrier's assigned route will take less than 8 hours to complete, management may "pivot" said Carrier to work on another route to fill that Carrier up to 8 hours.) is a tool postal management uses to redistribute and eliminate overtime costs, based on consultation with the Carrier about his/her estimated workload for the day and mail volume projections from the DOIS (Delivery Operations Information System) computer program. City Carrier routes are adjusted and/ or eliminated based on information (length, time, and overall workload) also controlled by this program, consultations with the Carrier assigned to the route, and a current PS Form 3999 (street observation by a Postal supervisor to determine accurate times spent on actual delivery of mail)... Rural carriers are under a form of salary called "evaluated hours", usually with overtime built in to their pay. The evaluated hours are created by having all mail counted for a period of two or four weeks, and a formula used to create the set dollar amount they will be paid for each day worked until the next time the route is counted... City letter carriers typically work urban routes that are high density and low mileage. These routes are classified as either "mounted" routes (for those that require a vehicle) or "walking" routes (for those that are done on foot). When working a mounted route, city letter carriers usually drive distinctive white vans with the logo of the United States Postal Service on the side and deliver to curbside and building affixed mailboxes. Carriers who walk generally also drive postal vehicles to their routes, park at a specified location, and carry one "loop" of mail, up one side of the street and back down the other side, until they are back to their vehicle. This method of delivery is referred to as "park and loop"... Rural letter carriers typically work routes that have a lower density and higher mileage than those of city letter carriers. They all work mounted routes, leaving their vehicles only to deliver to group mailboxes or to deliver an article that must be taken to a customer's door... Rural letter carriers often use their own vehicles and are not required to wear a uniform... Highway Contract Route carriers work routes that were established with a density of less than one customer per mile driven (some later grow denser, and can then be converted to rural delivery).

UPS announced that it has successfully tested a drone that launches from the top of a UPS® package car, autonomously delivers a package to a home and then returns to the vehicle while the delivery driver continues along the route to make a separate delivery. Get More Great Car Videos - Subscribe: https://goo.gl/BSIaFc UPS conducted the test on Monday in Lithia, Fla. with Workhorse Group (NASDAQ: WKHS), an Ohio-based battery-electric truck and drone developer. Workhorse built the drone and the electric UPS package car used in the test. “This test is different than anything we’ve done with drones so far. It has implications for future deliveries, especially in rural locations where our package cars often have to travel miles to make a single delivery,” said Mark Wallace, UPS senior vice president of global engineering and sustainability. “Imagine a triangular delivery route where the stops are miles apart by road. Sending a drone from a package car to make just one of those deliveries can reduce costly miles driven. This is a big step toward bolstering efficiency in our network and reducing our emissions at the same time.” With ORION, UPS’s On-Road Integrated Optimization Navigation routing software, a reduction of just one mile per driver per day over one year can save UPS up to $50 million. UPS has about 66,000 delivery drivers on the road each day. Rural delivery routes are the most expensive to serve due to the time and vehicle expenses required to complete each delivery. In this test, the drone made one delivery while the driver continued down the road to make another. This is a possible role UPS envisions for drones in the future. “Drivers are the face of our company, and that won’t change,” Wallace said. “What’s exciting is the potential for drones to aid drivers at various points along their routes, helping them save time and deliver on increasing customer service needs that stem from the growth of e-commerce.” The drone used in Monday’s test was the Workhorse HorseFly™ UAV Delivery system. It is a high-efficiency, octocopter delivery drone that is fully integrated with Workhorse’s line of electric/hybrid delivery trucks. The drone docks on the roof of the delivery truck. A cage suspended beneath the drone, extends through a hatch into the truck. A UPS driver inside loads a package into the cage and presses a button on a touch screen, sending the drone on a preset autonomous route to an address. The battery-powered HorseFly drone recharges while it’s docked. It has a 30-minute flight time and can carry a package weighing up to 10 pounds. For this test, Workhorse preset the route for the drone. But in the future, routes could be determined by UPS’s On-Road Integrated Optimization and Navigation (ORION), which is the company’s proprietary routing software. “It’s wonderful to see this technology applied in such a practical way,” said Stephen Burns, Workhorse founder and CEO. “The drone is fully autonomous. It doesn’t require a pilot. So the delivery driver is free to make other deliveries while the drone is away.” UPS has been testing automation and robotics technologies, including drones, for years. Last September, UPS staged a mock delivery of urgently needed medicine from Beverly, Mass. to an island three miles off the Atlantic coast. Additionally, UPS is using drones extensively for humanitarian relief, partnering with third-party organizations to deliver life-saving blood and vaccines to hard-to-reach locations in Rwanda. UPS also is utilizing drones to check inventory on high storage shelves in its warehouses. Unlike all of the previous tests, the most recent UPS drone test shows how drones might assist in making non-urgent residential deliveries as part of the day-to-day operation. Last year, the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) issued small unmanned aircraft systems rules that allow for some commercial use of drones and paved the way for future expanded applications. UPS was one of 35 selected from a cross section of key stakeholders to serve on the FAA’s drone advisory committee. The committee will provide the FAA recommendations on key drone integration issues that will ultimately allow for safe and secure operations of drones within the National Air Space System.

On July 27, 2016, Michigan-based Vayu, Inc., in collaboration with the Stony Brook University Global Health Institute completed the first ever series of long-range, fully autonomous drone delivery flights with blood and stool samples, setting records in the process. The samples were flown from villages in rural Madagascar to Stony Brook University's Centre ValBio, a central testing facility located adjacent to Ranamafana National Park, over hilly terrain without any road infrastructure. The unique ability of Vayu’s delivery drone to take off and land anywhere solves that problem and helps vulnerable rural communities to get the medical care they deserve. “The flights to and from villages in the Ifanadiana district of Madagascar ushers in a new era in bringing healthcare to people living in really remote settings,” said Dr. Peter Small, the Founding Director of Stony Brook’s Global Health Institute. "This day would not have been possible without the support of the government and people of Madagascar. In this context, drones will find innumerable uses such as accelerating the diagnosis of tuberculosis and ensuring the delivery of vaccines.” This effort was made possible by generous support from the United States Agency for International Development. www.vayu.us

Want same day package delivery service? Keep a look out for a drone to drop it at your front door. Drone delivery is about to get real! Just a few years ago drone delivery seemed like a thing of the distant future. Not anymore. A company in Ohio, called Workhorse Group is testing package deliveries using drones...but there’s a small twist. The drone comes out of the top of an electric delivery truck. After each delivery the drone returns to the truck for its next package. Martin Rucidlo, President of the Workhorse Group said, “The least expensive way to deliver a package would be utilizing a drone, it’s pennies in terms of cost per mile.” A driver programs the drone with an address. Using GPS, it flies to a safe altitude, drops the package within eighteen inches of the ground, usually near the front door. Then takes itself back to the delivery truck. “The driver of the truck has moved on to the next location and now the drone re-docks with the truck at a distant location that is where they are making the next delivery,” Rucidlo said. The drone delivers packages in rural areas, usually traveling distances of about one to two miles. “We envision working for maybe for 10% of the packages, you’re typically delivering 100 packages a day, ten of them will be utilizing the UAS truck delivery system,” he said. The UAS – or unmanned aerial system – can carry packages up to ten pounds, and it’s durable enough to fly in rain or snow. “There’s limitations, you can’t fly them in severe wind,” said Rucidlo. Afraid someone or something – a dog or curious child -- will get in the way of your delivery? The driver is still in charge. “Someone can see that your son is out and will stop the drone from descending at that point via a camera,” he said. The drones are still being tested, and the FAA needs to finalize rules for flying commercial drones – but the future of drone delivery could be just outside your door. “It also allows you to get to what I will call next hour, or one-hour delivery. We have standard delivery, then we have two-day, and then we have next day and then we would have same day, and then we believe one hour. And the only way you’re going to get there, we believe, is with a drone,” said Rucidlo.
