Indoor Garden Works' (IGWorks™) iHarvest Kickstarter introduces a beautiful, soilless indoor garden that brings food gardening to the center of your home

Back to Basics Soil Fertility Part 1

I see a lot of information being thrown your way - some factual, some based on speculation, and some science fiction. What I hope to be able to do is give you some background information so that you can reasonably detect which pile to file the information in.

Precision Irrigation Scheduling: Can We Cross The Chasm? (Part 3)

As the grower, trusted advisor, and the technologist move to a suite of precision technologies from the early adopter stage to the mainstream majority, we can get the next wave of innovation in the hands of the early adopters and the chasm will be crossed sooner than later.

The 2019 AUSVI XPONENTIAL Trade Show

AUSVI XPONENTIAL brings together the entire unmanned systems community to share ideas and learn about the emerging trends of unmanned technology.

Field Research: How To Get The Most From Split-Planting Trials

Split planting, which is planting two different hybrids side-by-side in the same planter pass, can be an effective way to generate powerful data to confirm your seed purchase, population and placement decisions.

Silicon Valley-based FarmWise Collaborates With Roush To Manufacture Autonomous Robots In Michigan

As growers are looking for new ways to optimize crop production, San Francisco-based FarmWise leverages the latest advances in artificial intelligence and robotics to offer plant-level farming as-a-service.

Precision Irrigation Scheduling: Should We Have A Problem? (Part 2)

We'll focus on three major sources of data that are used in various degrees for irrigation scheduling support. My premise here is that these data sources have not remained static but have indeed improved significantly over time.

The Fourth Industrial Revolution

For agricultural and biological engineers this new industrial era vindicates what we have been pursuing all along, and it shines a spotlight on our role in addressing one of humanity's grand challenges: designing resilient and sustainable food systems for the planet.

Precision Irrigation Scheduling: We Have A Problem

Precision agriculture technologies, particularly irrigation technologies, are still trying to prove their worth to producers in a way that would make them willing to leave the old ways behind to explore these new technologies for field operations.

HanaroFarm Succeeds in Developing a Novel Technology of Cultivating Special Crops with Selenium

HanaroFarm's new special crop cultivation technology involves ionizing selenium to remove harmful components and supplying the selenium to plants to enable it to be absorbed at a high concentration.

Can "Unhealthy" Soils Consistently Produce Exceptional Yields?

In some circles, soil health tends to end up in a discussion about farming practices - almost a checklist of do's and don'ts. Other approaches try to quantify soil health with a test.

AgBots: The Fourth Agricultural Revolution, Ready to Take Over Farms

In a nutshell, by bringing artificial intelligence and around-the-clock activity, the robots will help optimize the yield of the farms far beyond what could humanly be possible. Maximizing the production while minimizing the costs in energy, water, time.

Smart Irrigation -The Future of Automated and Connected Farming

Asia Pacific excluding Japan (APEJ) is expected to rise at the most attractive year-over-year growth over the assessment period. This is attributed to the rapid uptake of various smart irrigation technologies in several of it emerging economies

Global Seed Companies Target Climate Change and Nutrition Needs, but Miss 90% of World's Million Smallholder Farmers

Access to Seeds Index shows seed industry making slow progress in key regions, including Africa. Thailand's East-West Seed leads the way, followed by Syngenta and Bayer. Lack of crop diversity a major constraint; hybrid seed dominates while legumes largely ignored

Farm Dog, John Deere, and ADAMA Unveil Mobile-to-Sprayer Integration Solution

This integration removes communication hand-off costs and risk, ensuring that everybody responsible for keeping fields healthy is aligned in real-time.

Dynatect Automated Machine Safety Roll-Up Doors

Dynatect Automated Machine Safety Roll-Up Doors

Need to increase safety? Are you using light curtains? Is space a concern? Dynatect's Gortite® VF Automated Machine Safety Door combines safety technology, speed, and a physical barrier to isolate hazardous operations. Use of a physical barrier with safety sensors can save up to 30 square feet of manufacturing space. Using the ANSI minimum safety distance formula, the Gortite® VF Door limits the depth penetration factor and average approach speed, allowing closer location of the safeguarding device. Unlike light curtains, which can't contain process hazards, an automated machine safety door can isolate common workplace debris. This physical barrier is designed to contain process driven hazards such as weld sparks, UV flash, and light debris. Thus, the operator can maintain closer proximity to the work area improving ergonomics and productivity.
