Dual-purpose solar is the strategic co-locating and land management for both solar power development, ecosystem services and agricultural production. This method can reduce electricity costs, preserve soil health for traditional land use after decommissioning.
Forage Mass Monitoring (FFM) analysis has been traditionally done using biomass sampling to calculate biomass yield per hectare (t ha-1). Current research is now looking at reflectance spectroscopy methods using remote sensing systems based on unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).
Moving farming from vast expanses of land to urban settings sounds like no easy feat. How can enough plants grow to feed large populations in a limited space? Instead of taking down skyscrapers, urban farmers use their vertical nature to their advantage.
Dr Antony Dodd's research into the plant circadian clock had found that optimising growing conditions to match the clock resulted in plants that contained more chlorophyll, allowing them to convert more of the available light into biomass and grow faster.
As African countries are getting prepared for the imminent locust crisis, the smart agtech company XAG has proposed that agricultural drones, through more targeted night spraying application, can strongly support the current ground and aerial control measures.
By creating opportunities for intimate management of large operations without needing the traditional manpower and time investment, almost all processes from yield projection to harvest can be improved with the application of Big Data Analysis to farm management.
The array at Just A Few Acres features thirty-six, 170-watt panels, amounting to a cumulative 6.2 kilowatt capacity. The panels are framed by three poles that can be manually tilted throughout the year to accommodate for seasonal changes in the sun's position.
American Robotics Becomes First Company Approved by the FAA To Operate Automated Drones Without Human Operators On-Site
A seminal milestone in the drone industry, American Robotics now meets the safety requirements needed to make drones scalable for widespread commercial use.
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.
