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
Satellite technology allows you to move forward with data you know is accurate and reliable, helping with more precise loss adjustment processes, reports and index-based models for your clients.
Diana Gitig for Ars Technica: "We find that the current distribution of crops around the world neither attains maximum production nor minimum water use."
Sentera's swappable precision crop health sensors paired with the Inspire 2 offers agronomists, crop consultants, and growers an economical way to capture diverse vegetation indices such as normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI) or normalized difference red edge (NDRE) data while investing in a single drone platform.
Torstar News Service: Forty-foot containers, equipped with infrared lights and vertical hydroponics systems, can produce up to 150 pounds of kale a week.
Emily Monaco for Organic Authority: The National Organic Standards Board voted last Wednesday to reject proposals prohibiting hydroponic and aquaponic production methods from being certified USDA organic.
Typically growers want to see the seed date, variety, quantity, and maybe harvest date on a plant tag. This can all be done with barcodes.
Morgan Kelly, Princeton Environmental Institute: Princeton Universitys Vertical Farming Project began at a conference in 2016 when the topic turned to increasing the crop yield of hydroponic systems

"Smart farming" is an important part of the answer to this existential question: Extremely high efficiency in food production through the targeted use of the latest technology, computer-supported and - where possible - fully automatic. Seeds are individually and precisely placed; fruits carefully picked by mechanical grippers; fertilizers and plant protection products applied in small doses and in a targeted manner. These operations require a large number of small electric motors that are both robust and powerful.
