XPRIZE designs and operates global competitions to incentivize the development of technological breakthroughs that accelerate humanity toward a better future.
We'll focus on three major sources of data that are used in various degrees for irrigation scheduling support. My premise here is that these data sources have not remained static but have indeed improved significantly over time.
For agricultural and biological engineers this new industrial era vindicates what we have been pursuing all along, and it shines a spotlight on our role in addressing one of humanity's grand challenges: designing resilient and sustainable food systems for the planet.
Each STEM Box can produce between 200-300 lbs. (strain dependent) of dry yield annually (assuming five harvests/year) in only 2400 ft³ of growing space, with peak power consumption (i.e. late-stage flowering) of 400 kWh/day.
Element Farms, an indoor hydroponic farming company capable of growing safe, pesticide-free spinach at scale year-round, has launched its investment round on equity crowdfunding platform WeFunder.
Precision agriculture technologies, particularly irrigation technologies, are still trying to prove their worth to producers in a way that would make them willing to leave the old ways behind to explore these new technologies for field operations.
Container farms can be found in cities and backyards, parking lots and warehouses around the world. This kind of farming has interested millions of people, who like the idea of using discarded containers for farming.
HanaroFarm's new special crop cultivation technology involves ionizing selenium to remove harmful components and supplying the selenium to plants to enable it to be absorbed at a high concentration.
Freight Farms Announces Next-Generation Container Farm, Advancing Production Limits of Hydroponic Vertical Farming
Agtech innovator's new technology adds 70% more growing space, drives yield, efficiency, automation.
In some circles, soil health tends to end up in a discussion about farming practices - almost a checklist of do's and don'ts. Other approaches try to quantify soil health with a test.
In a nutshell, by bringing artificial intelligence and around-the-clock activity, the robots will help optimize the yield of the farms far beyond what could humanly be possible. Maximizing the production while minimizing the costs in energy, water, time.
Asia Pacific excluding Japan (APEJ) is expected to rise at the most attractive year-over-year growth over the assessment period. This is attributed to the rapid uptake of various smart irrigation technologies in several of it emerging economies
Global Seed Companies Target Climate Change and Nutrition Needs, but Miss 90% of World's Million Smallholder Farmers
Access to Seeds Index shows seed industry making slow progress in key regions, including Africa. Thailand's East-West Seed leads the way, followed by Syngenta and Bayer. Lack of crop diversity a major constraint; hybrid seed dominates while legumes largely ignored
For farmers looking for a greener, cheaper and more effective off-grid fuel solution that's reliable even in colder seasons, LPG (liquefied petroleum gas) could be an alternative.
This integration removes communication hand-off costs and risk, ensuring that everybody responsible for keeping fields healthy is aligned in real-time.
