A biosensor is an analytical device that can be used for the detection of target analytes. It consists of a transducing device (transforms a biochemical signal into a measurable signal) and a biological element, such as enzyme, antibody etc., which is immobilized.
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.
Farming has never been an exact science. Nature is unpredictable and oftentimes unforgiving. Even the slightest changes to weather patterns and temperature can decimate whole fields if they're not harvested in time.
The cost of natural sunlight is an important thing for producers to understand because there is an economic value that they should be placing on sunlight. It's one of the main inputs to production!
The Piqua Facility Will Further Complement Edible Garden's Flagship Greenhouse and Corporate Headquarters to Meet Mid-Western Produce Demand
The Bailey's goal is to integrate a vertically holistic approach to fruit growing and operating their orchard utilizing sustainable materials and renewable energy sources, thereby reducing their carbon footprint and working towards their goal of running a net-zero farm.
Technology Beats Humans at Growing Strawberries at Greenhouses in Pinduoduo Smart Agriculture Competition
The four technology teams, which employed data analysis, intelligent sensors and greenhouse automation, produced an average of 6.86 kilograms of strawberries, or 196% more than the 2.32 kilograms average for the three teams of traditional growers.
Some of the effects of this pandemic on how we work, live and interact with each other are likely to last much longer than the pandemic itself. I thought it useful to list some of the effects we're likely to experience in ag retail & agronomy.
With agritech, farmers are able to better understand their crops at a smaller scale, conserve resources, and reduce environmental impacts. And now, this technology has blended into smaller farms and producers.
Readers Choice 2020: Space to Grow, or Grow in Space - How Vertical Farms Could Be Ready to Take-off
Vertical farms with their soil-free, computer-controlled environments may sound like sci-fi, but there is a growing environmental and economic case for them, according to new research laying out radical ways of putting food on our plates.
The Boston Dynamics crew got together to celebrate the start of what we all hope will be a happier year. Happy New Year from all of us.
Satellites, UAVs, and remote sensors have been created that monitor farms for 24 hours per day consistently, hence, empowering the farmers to screen their yields in a superior manner and be updated in real-time about the perfect time for harvest.
About 12% of the Earth's land is used for growing crops. As the world's population grows, greater demands are placed on agriculture than ever before, and growers are depending on satellite data to increase their crops.
What's more, from shepherding to nursery planting, robots have already made their way into the agriculture industry. The death of skilled labor is another factor that propels the demand for agricultural robots.
Robotics and automation can be surprisingly useful for the growing industry - and may represent a major market for developers of commercial robotics over the next few years.
