Digitized and automated processes are becoming increasingly important in modern agricultural enterprises. Machine vision methods play a key role here. Among other things, they can be used for a variety of precision farming applications.
Smart farming involves the incorporation of advanced technologies into existing farming methods in order to increase production efficiency and the quality of the agricultural products.
Manufacturing is beset by major challenges that are made worse by hyper shifts in supply and demand. Three main areas that are persistently an issue for Manufacturers are quality and safety issues, waste and underperforming assets, and high environmental impact.
Farmers have had good scouting imagery technology for many years now, and this is an area that is ripe with new opportunity from automation and artificial intelligence. Thanks to innovations from emerging ag-tech startups, the technology is evolving quickly.
By removing LED drivers from individual light fixtures, the new MegaDrive™ eliminates the need for electrical power connections throughout the greenhouse or grow room while significantly reducing up-front costs.
One company iUNU, has a system that uses AI to help with early pest detection. The system "learns" what healthy crops and plants look like, recognizes when anomalies occur, and then sends an alert when something is amiss.
There are ways to improve the carbon efficiency of plants, while increasing production. By making use of diversified cropping systems growers can reduce the carbon footprint up to 300 %.
Carrier and AWS Collaborate to Transform How Food, Medicine, Vaccines, and Other Perishable Goods Are Moved and Monitored Globally
Carrier's new Lynx digital platform will provide customers with greater connectivity, visibility, and intelligence across the cold chain to improve safe transport of temperature-controlled items
With advancements in satellite technology, imagery can be taken from peak biomass to create a zone map based on how the crop performs out in the field. These maps generally look very close to how the yield map will look after harvest.
The agricultural sector is undergoing significant changes and is modernising. To take the strain off farmers, many robots are being developed to automate tasks. What specific technical characteristics should ag machinery manufacturers take into account to assist farmers?
The rising public awareness on the harmful effects of food produced from conventional chemical-fertilizer-based agriculture, the growing health consciousness of the masses, especially in North American and European countries, is also pushing up the demand for organic food.
The possibilities offered for agriculture by new technologies, big data and the rise of the Internet of Things (IoT) makes precision agriculture a market that's sure to grow over the coming years.
The companies share more than 80 years of combined experience and a common goal of bringing tech to farming. Their integrated platform will be available to growers in more than 40 countries, potentially covering hundreds of thousands of acres.
For the first time, the Ohio State University's Farm Science Review, scheduled for September 22 to 24, will be a virtual show. The farm show, sponsored by Ohio State's College of Food, Agricultural and Environmental Sciences would normally have over 100,000 attendees.
You can place our sensors in your field when the insects arrive, the sensors can figure out what type of insect it is. If it is a beneficial or neutral insect, it does nothing. However, if it is a bad bug aka pest, it sends the information to the cloud.

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.
