Trimble and Kyivstar Partner to Provide GNSS Correction Services for Agriculture, Construction and Geospatial Applications in Ukraine
Trimble Hardware and Software Selected for New GNSS Network
While indoor farming offers numerous advantages, it's essential to acknowledge one of its major challenges: energy consumption. The controlled environment required for optimal crop growth demands a significant amount of energy for lighting, heating, and cooling. In an era when sustainability is a top priority, finding solutions to mitigate rising energy costs and reduce the environmental impact of indoor farming is crucial.
As we look towards the future of agriculture, one crucial concern arises - how do we make this age-old industry more appealing to the younger generation? Agriculture has been the backbone of societies for centuries, but today, it's facing a challenge as more people are leaving the field than joining. However, we believe there's a path forward to revitalize this essential sector and make it not just sustainable, but also attractive to the tech-savvy youth of today.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) development of an updated Endangered Species Act (ESA) workplan could cause growers to lose herbicide options. The Weed Science Society of America (WSSA) encourages growers to study the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) proposed herbicide strategy for Endangered Species Act compliance and comment on how it may affect their operations.

Precision Farming - Featured Product
Image processing opens up a wide range of possibilities for the automation of modern agriculture - but what to do when only a small budget is available? That is where the uEye XLS comes in. With the launch of these super-small industrial cameras, even price-sensitive applications and volume projects become feasible. Measuring just 29 x 29 x 7 mm, the compact cameras offer excellent imaging characteristics without excessive heat generation, making them a perfect fit for embedded vision applications in agricultural machinery and equipment. The industrial cameras comply with the vision standard and are available with Micro-B connectors and with or without C/CS or S-mount lens holders, further increasing their adaptability to different agricultural environments. Thanks to these features, the cameras offered by IDS Imaging Development Systems lower the barriers to entry and make it easier to explore the potential of vision technology to optimize agricultural processes.
