Farmers use geothermal energy to heat them and can use geothermal water in the pipes to adjust humidity levels if needed. This power source helps crops grow faster and be more reliable.
Engineers working in the agricultural industry can benefit greatly from implementing true maintenance- free pivots within their machinery. Maintenance-free pivots have several benefits that can help significantly increase efficiency within the agricultural field.
NextGen Nano has released an infographic highlighting how the production of solar-powered glazing for greenhouse windows can help contribute to a sustainable future.
This robust network continuously monitors the water pressure through the pipes that connect to the clusters that then feed each pivot. Monitoring is done via pressure transducers to the clusters.
Data is king in modern business, and cannabis cultivation is no different. To understand precisely what's happening in every room of your grow facility, your facility needs a robust system of data collection and analysis.
One way to define sustainable packaging is: packaging that made of sustainable and/or sustainably sourced materials and that could be re-used multiple times.
To prevent water from flooding the root zone, it's imperative to supply avocado trees with enough dissolved oxygen so they can absorb the water efficiently. The benefits of root zone oxygenation are well-established
Previously, Lee relied on hand-held digital and mercury thermometers to monitor the bogs' nighttime temperatures, but he wanted a more autonomous and hierarchical system that allowed for continuous monitoring of multiple variables.
Although many of the currently available LED fixtures look similar and often utilize many identical components it is still important to fully explore performance metrics when evaluating lighting options.
Drone can spray pesticides, spread fertilizers, and sow seeds directly by using a mobile phone to operate. Its versatile application and full automation are reshaping how rice is farmed, helping growers reduce labor costs.
If you don't have any data, how do you know what you are doing is right - or even a good thing? Connectivity provides a means to get the data from the fields. The data can then be analyzed to provide insights for better yields or cost savings or efficiencies.
AgTech Breakthrough Awards Honor Global Innovators Addressing Today's Biggest Challenges in the Global Agricultural Ecosystem
The mission of the annual AgTech Breakthrough Awards program is to conduct the industry's most comprehensive analysis and evaluation of agricultural and food technology categories, including IoT and AI based agricultural technologies.
The scale and complex nature of the agri-food supply chain creates numerous vulnerabilities across all stages in the face of modern challenges.
Managing the cash flow needed to yield a successful crop can be challenging. Gains are greatest when agronomic and economic benefits of input purchases are considered and revisited throughout the crop year.
In the grow, 16 ft. towers holding layers of hydroponic beds maximize their growing space and minimize waste production to as low as 5%, and with a reliance on hydropower, no excess C02 is released into the atmosphere.
