Monitoring & Growing - Articles, Stories & Interviews
Technological advancements focused on sensors, Internet of Things (IoT), autonomous robots, and drones, when integrated with mechanized equipment, provide applications in various agricultural practices.
There is a good assortment of drones that no longer need ground stations or PCs to communicate. A farmer can now head out into the field with only a drone and tablet and be able to collect high-res imagery in minutes with simple, easy-to-use mobile apps.
It’s amazing how much technology has become an everyday part of our family farm, which has grown to 2,100 acres. Instead of a notebook, we use digital tools like FieldView™ so we have all of our data right at our fingertips.
Slow and steady is winning the race as Farmwave's platform has taken almost 6 years to get to this release... but the AI output results and complex core in the background combined with an easy and almost social style UI/UX form of data collection is on point.
Few market sectors are as dynamic as agriculture. The value-chain has to manage volatile prices, changeable weather, 24/7 consumer demands, regulatory changes and global challenges
The simplest way that robotic technology can be used for cannabis farming is the trimming process. AI-powered robots are able to automate the trimming process, so that farmers are able to de-leaf buds quickly and effectively, saving countless hours of manual labor.
