Of all the new technologies appearing on the farm, "remote sensing" systems (devices that measure conditions from a distance, commonly an aircraft or satellite) are unique in their ability to deliver information on the existing conditions in the field.
Field health images can be compared with other important data layers, such as yield, to give farmers a deeper understanding of crop performance that they can use as they plan for the next season.
The intensive plant nursery, located in North Lincolnshire, England, will be the largest indoor farm in Europe, producing up to 420 tonnes of leafy greens per year across a growing area of 5120m2, arranged in racks rising to the height of 11m.
Osram's smart horticulture lighting system prototype used in NASA ground research to help provide space crews with a reliable source of fresh food.
When extreme weather strikes, lives and livelihoods are ruined, and farms are altered. Scientists are utilizing the most modern supercomputers to generate higher resolutions with greatly enhanced forecasting skill to help farmers beat extreme weather.
As we move from spring to summer, an interesting question arises: should those hoping for big corn yields this fall be cheering for a cooler- or warmer-than-normal summer?
For the agriculture industry, the Internet of Things (IoT) is revolutionizing the ability to improve sustainability in every area, from the field to the data center.
RippleNami Powers Kenya's First Real-time Livestock Traceability Programme Enabling Trade and Food Safety
Kenya Veterinary Association partners with RippleNami to capture critical livestock data assets. Launching this programme addresses long standing challenges such as disease control and surveillance and traceability etc.
The use of real-time data is beginning in agricultural sectors with high-value highly perishable crops such as fresh vegetables, berries and other fresh fruit. There is more communication between the field and the processor in those sectors
What you want to grow indoors are high value and short shelf-life crops that you can stack or vertically rack to grow. For instance, in pods and warehouses, you grow plants by stacking multiple beds vertically or horizontally.
FoodLogiQ announced the creation of FoodLogiQ Labs, a research and development hub dedicated to the acceleration of new products and solutions to meet the growing needs of the food industry.
Soil Health Institute Announces Methods for Evaluating Soil Health Indicators at a Continental Scale
By project conclusion in 2020, SHI expects to have the data required for recommending scientifically-sound soil health indicators to help farmers, scientists, agricultural policy makers, and others answer the fundamental question: Just how healthy are our soils?
Many smallholder farmers also lack resources to use existing precision agriculture tools they desperately need to become profitable. Rockabye aims to make lucrative farming operations accessible and more affordable.
Q & A with IntelinAir's CEO, Al Eisaian. While the march of technology continues to accelerate, I'm very excited about three things happening in the ag-tech industry in relation to aerial technology.
Advancements like nutrient monitoring and early disease detection are only possible using precise, repeatable measurements. To generate such measurements, a multispectral camera must be a "narrow band" camera.
