At the ETH Zurich, a robot has been developed to mechanically destroy the weeds growing between crops. "Rowesys" is conveniently started via remote control - and makes herbicides unnecessary.
Farmers are often left to protect their own land and are responsible for ensuring they take safety precautions to stop the spread of a wildfire caused by natural events. Fortunately, the USDA has assisted farmers that have experienced wildfire damage.
The future of agritech and the ag retailer/client relationship ultimately depends on learning from all the data available. The information gathered is vital for both farmers and their retailers.
By end use the market has been bifurcated into agricultural farms and livestock farms. Proper disinfection is required to protect crops and livestock from harmful diseases or sterilize the microorganisms.
Image processing with cameras and AI enables applications that were previously unthinkable. In agriculture, for example, it supports the optimal application of fertilizers, the visual monitoring of products and growth phases, and the processing of harvested crops.
It lives just beneath your feet, in every acre of every farm. And it's waiting for the right moment to strike. I'm talking about one of the more elusive, yet avoidable challenges farmers face this time of year: seedling disease.
Primarily, recyclable renewable energy works with solar panels and indoor farming. It offers multiple benefits for farmers, environmentalists and businesses alike. Here's how recycling renewable energy can benefit indoor farming.
Most of the research I have found on the subject relates to airborne sound, but with new advances in technology, we can now create customized vibrations using transducers that can be actuated via sound files.
Architects, lighting designers and former NASA engineers detail new bio-driven lighting solutions for advanced sustainable indoor agriculture.
. Potassium Silicate applied bi-weekly throughout the vegetative and early generative cycles at various rates has been shown to not only decrease pathogenic susceptibility but also plays a major role in the reduction of drought and heat stress.
Biostimulants are substances or micro-organisms, which, when applied to seeds, plants, rhizosphere in specific formulations, are capable of making changes in physiological processes in plants and benefit the plants by boosting growth and increasing nutrient content.
When deploying standalone solutions, the challenge comes later on when they won't be able to aggregate data and will be forced to manage multiple systems with functionalities that overlap, therefore losing the power of an interoperable system.
What is starting to change for farmers is the increasing focus globally of large carbon emitters wanting or needing to offset their carbon footprint, This can either be through self-imposed sustainability goals, or it can be enforced by a government.
Anyone who wants to realize applications in which objects with a wide variety of characteristics - such as vegetables or fruit - are to be reliably recognized, cannot afford to ignore image processing with artificial intelligence.
Innovation can be counterintuitive. Progress can challenge conventional wisdom. And it's not always difficult to do something better. Steve has learned this firsthand - and many times over.
