The twin pressures of a relentless increase in the demand for larger volumes and higher quality fruits and vegetables together with pressures on growers for more sustainable farming will drive the need for higher yields at the plant level.
Akin to Industry 4.0, Agriculture 4.0 refers to the next big trends facing the industry, including a greater focus on tools for precision agriculture, as well as agricultural technology ('AgTech').
Wilbur-Ellis Partners with Guardian Agriculture in Multi-Million Dollar Agreement to Bring Autonomous Aerial Application to Growers Across America
The largest agricultural robotics investment commitment to date brings leading innovation in autonomous aircraft to the agriculture industry
The purpose of using heat specifically in the root zone of cuttings is to induce dormancy in the upper vegetative part and to encourage root growth at the base. The temperature difference between soil and air gives the plant a boost for root formation..
"The compact format, high performance and great resistance to wear and tear makes the rugged PCs from JLT very suitable to our needs," comments Steketee's R&D Director.
At its best, soil is an ecosystem filled with fungi, healthy bacteria and organic matter. Healthy soil protects plants from pests, reduces weed growth and sustains healthy crops year after year.
Climate risks can directly affect crop production by reducing agricultural yields for some crops, increasing production volatility, and destabilising farmer incomes. On the one hand, oversupply could result in farmers receiving lower profits.
Most farm equipment either uses diesel or fossil-fuel-derived electricity, so transitioning to biofuels as an alternate fuel source could have several environmental benefits.
Agricultural yields must improve, but farms can't expand the way they have for much of their history. The solution to this problem is data analytics.
The Decarbon8 Fund announced a new Request for Proposal (RFP) for companies advancing regenerative agriculture solutions that reduce greenhouse gas emissions and other environmental impacts.
Using an in-expensive drone, they can map a full quarter section of land in about 20 minutes, providing a real-time map that is able to instantly show variability and allow them to quickly identify problem areas and determine solutions.
In the future, cameras could spot blackbirds feeding on grapes in a vineyard and launch drones to drive off the avian irritants, then return to watch for the next invading flock. All without a human nearby.
HydroGreen's commercial scale Automated Vertical Pastures™ technology helps meet increasing demand for valuable farm-based inset and offset carbon credits from all manner of organizations with net-zero goals.
Utilizing precision ag would significantly reduce the agriculture industry's environmental impact, which currently accounts for around a quarter of global greenhouse gas emissions.
The pairing of photovoltaics and agriculture is something that must be further explored, including more supportive legislation and regulations allowing for this dual use of land.

Precision Farming - Featured Product
Allied Vision's compact and light weight Alvium SWIR (short wave infrared) cameras are the ideal choice to build cost-effective OEM systems used in embedded and machine vision applications. The cameras support a spectral range from 400 nm to 1700 nm at high quantum efficiencies. This allows to capture images in both the visible and SWIR spectra with a single camera and enables users to reduce overall system costs! Equipped with Sony's IMX990 and IMX991 SenSWIR InGaAs sensors, Alvium SWIR cameras deliver high image quality and frame rates. This makes them well suited for drones or handheld devices used in various industries such as, agriculture, mining, solar cell inspection or medical.
