Companies seek to improve soil health, optimize pest control and scale food production, and will test technologies at Danforth Plant Science Center
The delicacy of our food supply networks has been exposed, and now is the time to reflect on how our systems could change for the better, as well as our behaviour as consumers - demonstrated by those who have pledged to support local businesses more during this time.
The use of agricultural robots has significantly increased during this pandemic state, especially to boost the production of food grains, meet the cumulative demands of people for food, and fight against the dangerous COVID-19 disease.
Farming automation has proved to increase the return from the soil while strengthening the soil's fertility. This article is a brief overview regarding the up-to-date application of automation in agriculture.
The current trend of automation has witnessed the development of new technologies that are capable of providing end-to-end automation for the production of certain processed foods.
The increased utilization of precision agriculture has resulted in more data breaches. Precision agriculture is a management system that relies on measuring and quantifying vast amounts of data to improve yields and decrease inputs.
About 12% of the Earth's land is used for growing crops. As the world's population grows, greater demands are placed on agriculture than ever before, and growers are depending on satellite data to increase their crops.
It's been thought that hydroponic and aquaponic systems could reduce these issues since there is little opportunity for pathogens like E. coli to contaminate the edible parts of plants.
While there are many different techniques with indoor farming, including hydroponics, aeroponics, and aquaponics, all of them have one thing in common - the lack of soil. Instead of using the concept of growing in soil, crops are instead grown in peat moss or coconut husks.
Here is how the American supply chain is currently standing up to COVID-19 and how experts believe it will respond in the future. We'll also look at how farmers are using new techniques to make food logistics and distribution more efficient, sustainable and resilient.
It's time for the U.S. to renew its commitment to being the preeminent global agriculture powerhouse by becoming more intelligent about how we grow.
3D printing could soon become a regular way of processing food. Here, Tatjana Milenovic, global head of ABB's food and beverage segment, explains how 3D printing could change the way we manufacture food.
University of Maryland College of Agriculture and Natural Resources leads soil health, nutrient management, and water quality efforts in a rigorous 5-year study to develop environmentally sustainable agricultural systems in Maryland and the Chesapeake Bay Watershed.
As a vital resource for plant-growing, water plays an especially important role in agriculture. This article examines the importance of water quality monitoring with regard to indoor agriculture, and how IoT water sensors are key to enhancing crop yield.
