Reverse osmosis systems have a downside. The water produced from the system eventually attacks everything made of metal in the greenhouse, such as stainless steel enclosures. Why? Because this water is attracted to the minerals in the metal.
Pranbihanga Borpuzari for ET Online: A robotic arm uses these coordinates to pick the cotton and the arm, then uses a vacuum for precision picking of cotton and avoids picking any other contaminant.
It does seem a bit strange to have the word "drone" used to not only cover a $30 hobby aircraft that a child can fly, but to also describe a high-tech $10 million weapon used on a battlefield. Those devices don't exactly serve the same purpose. So why don't they have differe
We asked the team at Trifecta Ecosystems to share their experience switching from a world of pen & paper to the digital world of Agrilyst & barcodes.
Gabe Blanchet, Co-Founder, CEO of Grove via The Spoon: While todays indoor farming owes a whole lot to the cannabis, NASA and greenhouse research, my focus in this piece is on the formative impact pot growers had on this industry.
Funding Enables Rapidly Growing Farmer Network to Accelerate the Independent Digital Farm Economy
Ridding rail tracks of weeds is essential to safety, and finding an alternative might not be simple. Specialist operator Weedfree on Track has been combatting weed problems for over half a century.
Karen Graham for Digital Journal: An agrophotovoltaics (APV) pilot project conducted at Lake Constance has proven that farming and the use of solar panels can be compatible.
Monthly and seasonal forecasts are large-scale in nature and dont provide specific numbers for the various weather parameters. In other words, the science currently cannot provide accurate long-range forecasts of actual weather conditions for a given day specific to your location.
Shelby Rogers for Interesting Engineering: Plantagon could help solve food shortages around the world and save 1,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions from traditional farming methods.
Indoor Farms of America Brings World's First Solar Powered Vertical Aeroponic Farm, Announces More International Sales
Indoor Farms of America announces the first fully operating, 100% solar powered vertical aeroponic indoor farm in the world.
Matt Simon for Wired: The company is developing machine learning algorithms that will automatically detect diseased plants and kick them out of the system before the sickness spreads. Underdeveloped plants would also get the boot.
This Swiss innovation makes possible to achieve higher yields with drastically reduced consumption of water, of fertilizer and of energy, and thus can make a substantial contribution to the food security of the world. As the predicted market volume for the sensor is huge, PlantCare Ltd. seeks strategic partners to utilize it.
Jody Helmer for Civil Eats: Vertical farms allow food banks to grow their own produce with high-tech systems in an effort to fight food insecurity year-round.
Anne Trafton for MIT News Office: MIT engineers have created sensors that can be printed onto plant leaves and reveal when the plants are experiencing a water shortage

Manufacturing and packaging operations that still depend on manual material or parts handling operations can reap immediate benefits from a type of automation based on long-travel Cartesian robots with custom end-of-arm tooling (EOAT) and advanced sensing capabilities. These robots can support a variety of machines - performing otherwise manual tasks such as machine tending or transferring in-process parts - making long-travel Cartesian transfer robots a major upgrade to processes and operations.
