Carnivorous starfish destroying Great Barrier Reef -- sugar cane farming culprit?
The condition of the Tropical agriculture article is truly horrific. I'm going to try to do a little for it, but it needs a lot more attention than I can give it. CometEncke (talk) 10:11, 6 February 2016 (UTC)
Beekeeping in India seems like a notable topic, in the category tree of Category:Beekeeping by country. It needs major and vast improvement. Could any editors assist with this? AusLondonder (talk) 08:33, 4 May 2016 (UTC)
Someone with knowledgable of Western hay or silage practices needed
The article Conditioner (farming) has received a call for an expert, because the article is based largely (it appears) in commercial product descriptions, is at odds in terms of content and emphases with some identified sources (see Further reading and External links, at that article), and because the information that currently appears is completely unsourced. Can this Wikiproject identify someone with Western farm practise experience, perhaps with Ag Econ training, to take a look in on this article, and begin to revise it, and source the content that the expert finds to be accurate enough to remain?

The article Fly strike in sheep was badly in need of some fixing up, so I did that. I then discovered that the article Myiasis existed. I really don't know whether they should carry on to exist as two separate articles or be merged. Does anyone have an opinion on this? The subject is far outside of my areas of special knowledge.

- It's a specific term used in veterinary circles, so it makes more sense to have the articles separate. Us entomologists may use the term myiasis generally, but there's so many types that each generally can warrant their own article for the species or general group. The only things I see at first glance is that myiasis is a bit too human focused, and the the fly strike article could use a change in tone due to WP:NOTHOWTO. I don't see any need for a merge at least. Kingofaces43 (talk) 02:33, 21 July 2016 (UTC)
