Pivot irrigation is an efficient method of watering crops. The center pivot station houses a motor and a water pumping station. Water comes from a lake or a river source and runs through pipes under the ground to the pivot center.
Water conservation is a popular topic within agriculture and throughout the world. Over 7.6 billion people populate the earth, and each person needs access to safe drinking water.
As freshwater supplies become increasingly limited and the world's population continues to grow, Auburn University College of Agriculture researchers are working on ways to find and utilize alternative water resources for irrigating crops.
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.
As a vital resource for plant-growing, water plays an especially important role in agriculture. This article examines the importance of water quality monitoring with regard to indoor agriculture, and how IoT water sensors are key to enhancing crop yield.
The primary function of agricultural drones in the current market is integration for pesticide management and irrigation systems. By collecting and analyzing data, drones can assist agricultural operations in more efficient pesticide use.
Lindsay and Farmers Edge Expand Digital Partnership to Connect Two Million Irrigated Acres by the End of 2021
This expansion delivers new levels of integration to provide the industry's most advanced AI-driven crop management solution available.
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
Top Article from 2019 - Irrigation Technology in Agriculture: How New Technologies Overcome Challenges
Technology can, and already does, aid agriculture in innumerable ways. One prominent part of agriculture that can use technological innovation to increase efficiency and effectiveness is irrigation.
Iowa Grower Achieves Nation's 2nd Highest 2019 Corn Yield in the No-Till Irrigated Category Using Netafim Drip Irrigation
National Corn Growers Association Recognizes Growers in Iowa, North Carolina and South Dakota for Their Outstanding Drip-Irrigated Corn Yields
The irrigation controllers market is driven by factors such as the growing need for water conservation, increased need for modern agricultural practices, the need for the adoption precision farming, and the growing lawn and garden area.
The combination of the Internet of Things (IoT) and AI technologies, such as machine learning, computer vision, and predictive analytics, further allow farmers to analyse real-time data of weather conditions, temperature, soil moisture, and plant health.
As the grower, trusted advisor, and the technologist move to a suite of precision technologies from the early adopter stage to the mainstream majority, we can get the next wave of innovation in the hands of the early adopters and the chasm will be crossed sooner than later.
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.
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.

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.
