Transporting livestock is often more complicated than it first appears. Any unnecessary stress, movement or discomfort can jeopardize the animals' health, even resulting in death. Thankfully, innovative technology can help keep livestock safe and comfortable.
Here's a guide to help you understand what urban gardening entails and why it is the key to meeting growing demand while helping urban consumers and communities exercise control over the way their food is grown.
The upcycled shipping containers that house these systems can be placed virtually anywhere in the world - from island nations and urban areas to college campuses and the far reaches of Alaska - and produce food year-round.
Our large-scale automated Vertical Farm concept for investors and major UK retailers is 'next evolution' for industry
Cambridge HOK is confident of leading 'the next evolution of the Vertical Farming industry' having launched a new 'concept to completion' package to provide investors and retailers with their own fully automated indoor growing facilities.
Controlled environment agriculture will likely play a critical role in the future of crop production. Both commercially and locally, operations that use this growing strategy can produce crops year-round, while improving the quality and size of their harvests.
Agriculture is BIG Business. Despite its obvious importance in our lives, most of us are unaware of the actual size of agriculture as a market by itself - currently, a $9 trillion market employing about 27 percent of the world's population.
Meat is a crucial component of western diets. Eastern countries like China are also experiencing significant meat consumption increases. As the global demand for meat changes, factory farms and food production facilities must alter their practices.
A distributed network of farms and farmers means that our technology is able to effect change on a greater scale. In our goal to move farms, not food, we strive to create resiliency in food supply chains and greater food access across the world
Recognizing organic and multi-variant objects is no easy challenge in machine vision. However, the situation is different when using intelligent cameras such as those of the IDS NXT series.
By transitioning to more environmentally sustainable practices, cultivators can reduce waste, address climate change, and improve cannabis sustainability.
As the situation grows direr, agriculture professionals will have no choice but to rethink and redesign transportation models. Already, many have turned to innovative solutions to streamline the process and keep up with demanding customers.
To reap all the benefits of the new wave of innovation, there needs to be collaboration between governments, big corporations, small and large farmers, landowners, and technology companies.
By placing the camera inside the gripper, the position of the camera is fully controllable. The camera can point its optical axis at the apple, reducing image distortion and eliminating repetitive calibration steps during apple picking.
Phase one of the New York-based, indoor farming pioneer's project will house a 150,000 square foot state-of-the-art climate-controlled, high-tech hydroponic greenhouse facility.
Not only has this system improved the defect grading capabilities, also the capacity of the machine increased significantly. The Elisam GranTorino sorting machine could now easily process 1000 kg/h per lane.

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.
