The agricultural industry are continually looking for ways to increase output, improve efficiency and reduce waste. This has led to robots and automation becoming an integral part of farming and food production processes.
Battery technology needs to be developed in order to withstand the heavy loads of agricultural vehicles and supply a lasting and reliable source of power.
From the racetrack to the farm: Ideanomics, Energica and Solectrac to design a new generation of electric tractors featuring technology from the world's best electric motorcycle
Collaboration between Solectrac and Energica Inside on battery pack development is expected to boost run-time, meaning customers can do more with their electric tractors per charge.
Microsoft reached out to Blue Radix to help them develop a commercial version of the Blue Radix solution for autonomous growing. This solidified the partnership and helped develop what would become the commercially available Crop Controller service.
Instead of elaborately programming a solution, neural networks and deep learning algorithms teach an image processing system to see, recognize and verify objects - in this case smoke.
The company 3D scans parts with high precision to adapt or reproduce them for machine modifications like a core cleaning module or an enhanced sowing system.
Farmers need to meet the demanding sustainability regulations, attempt to increase their yield, and improve productivity across all crops, all while conserving both farmland and water due to a diminishing natural resource base.
The NORD solutions eliminated the need for outdated shives/pulleys/belts/guards, etc. They also use a direct-drive concept that is much safer and more efficient.
When owners and head growers first start thinking about building a new commercial grow facility, often the first thing on their minds is profitability-how do we differentiate our product and outperform the competition with better plant quality and higher yields?
Multi-use, modular platform Unmanned Ground Vehicle (UGV) automates tree and vine crop tasks, starting with intelligent spraying
The hydrovoltaic prototype, with an installed power of 9.3 kW, has been operational since August 2021 and covers an area of 250 m². It is equipped with a hydraulic system with two rainwater collection gutters and a tank with a pump system.
A recent spate of cyberattacks prompted the FBI to issue a warning to agriculture co-ops. It advised them to be on high alert, especially during important planting and harvest times.
As it moves to lead the country in the study of drone use in agriculture, WCCC is developing the curriculum and technology to offer students career training in the fast-growing field - and farmers a resource that could dramatically change their practices.
Many of today's agricultural professionals find that farming is no longer as profitable as it once was. However, that outlook doesn't paint the whole picture for all farmers. The COVID-19 pandemic was particularly challenging for the agricultural sector and family farms.
As farms across the country embrace new technology, fiber optic connections could become a crucial stepping stone to digital transformation and precision agriculture. Here's how.

drylin® gantry robots consist of two base X-axes, a Y-axis, and an optional Z-axis. Their self-lubricating plastic liners have been engineered to slide instead of roll and to run smoother and quieter than recirculating ball bearings. drylin® gantries are also lightweight, corrosion-resistant, maintenance-free, and cost up to 40% less than traditional gantry robots.
