3 Aspects of Modern Farming That Need Data to Thrive

We must continue to improve the output and efficiency of our agriculture in the U.S. and across the globe. Utilizing data to generate timely recommendations for planting, irrigation, fertilization, spraying and harvest will allow us to provide citizens of the world with both higher quality and a greater quantity of crops to enjoy while also protecting the land

Drones in Agriculture: Undeniable Value and Plenty of Growth, But Not the Explosion Others Predict

ABI Research gives comparatively conservative estimates at the valuation of the drone-ag market for many reasons, including an increasingly consolidated market, and the actual needs of the farming industry

A Simple Solution: Luxul Provides Outdoor Wi-Fi Coverage for Washington's Bethany Vineyard and Winery

Bethany Vineyard required a wireless access point that delivered excellent coverage, weather resistance, and simple installation.

Using Windmills to Deliver Water

A typical windmill with 8 diameter wheel can lift water 185 feet and pump about 150 gallons an hour in 15 to 20 mph winds when using a 1 ¾ "pump cylinder.

Satellite-based Data for Precision Farming Applications

The low cost of our data acquisition, coupled with our ability to task our own satellites and process data on-board allow us to bring data to problems that are outside of the possibilities for current satellites, aerial imaging and drones

9 Tips to Improve Drone Flight Time

As far as drones have evolved over the years, many consumer models still feature a max flight time of around 20 minutes. Some offer as little as five minutes. This fallback can be annoying to those wanting to fly longer than a third of an hour

Artificial Intelligence in Agriculture: Understanding Crop Growth

There are many different types of potential applications of AI in agriculture -- ranging from machine control, to image analysis, to improving our understanding of where, when, and how a crop might respond toparticular environmental conditions.

Agriculture Impacts Weather: The Case For Connected Ecosystems

When viewing the Texas and Oklahoma Panhandles and southwest Kansas in Google Earth, you can see areas of green interspersed with predominantly brown tones. Zooming into any of these areas, you quickly discover that the majority of these green pixels are irrigated fields

Pegasus Food Futures Introduce Ground-breaking Farming Technique

They unveiled plans to use artificial intelligence to improve the efficiency and reduce the costs of hydroponic farming as well as to optimise the nutritional value of the crops.

Some Deep Learnings from Applying Deep Learning

To build a robust deep learning model, it can be much more than training or fine tuning some existing models (e.g. inception v3, resnet, LSTM, etc.) with your own dataset. These winning models are your best friend and can usually serve as base models.

Mapping Potassium Deficiency: Table Grapes in the San Joaquin Valley

Growers know their crop and the pitfalls that diminish yield quality and quantity. Walking the field garners valuable information, but not all problems are visible to the naked eye, especially during early stages of a pest infestation, disease onset, or nutrient deficiency.

Using NDVI to Validate Fungicide Treatments in Barley

In this study, calibrated NDVI values showed a strong correlation with the level of disease visually scouted by researchers in the field. In fact, the NDVI map was able to successfully indicate differences in barley yield between the treatments.

Danish "Robot Hands" Pack Delicate Herbs

The two "fingers" of the robot gripper have built-in intelligence and advanced technology that mimics the way humans instinctively use our sense of touch when we grab things to move them.

Indoor Gardening is a Great Experience

Almost any plant can be successfully grown indoors. Youll need to do a little research to learn what crops will fit into your space and lighting availability. Herb gardens will grow in small spaces and in low light conditions.

Cargill brings facial recognition capability to farmers through strategic equity investment in Cainthus

Cargill and Cainthus intend to first focus on the global dairy segment, but will expand to other species, including swine, poultry and aqua over the next several months.

Dynatect Automated Machine Safety Roll-Up Doors

Dynatect Automated Machine Safety Roll-Up Doors

Need to increase safety? Are you using light curtains? Is space a concern? Dynatect's Gortite® VF Automated Machine Safety Door combines safety technology, speed, and a physical barrier to isolate hazardous operations. Use of a physical barrier with safety sensors can save up to 30 square feet of manufacturing space. Using the ANSI minimum safety distance formula, the Gortite® VF Door limits the depth penetration factor and average approach speed, allowing closer location of the safeguarding device. Unlike light curtains, which can't contain process hazards, an automated machine safety door can isolate common workplace debris. This physical barrier is designed to contain process driven hazards such as weld sparks, UV flash, and light debris. Thus, the operator can maintain closer proximity to the work area improving ergonomics and productivity.
