The lettuce's outer, or 'wrapper', leaves will be mechanically removed to expose the stem. Machine vision and artificial intelligence are then used to identify a precise cut point on the stem to neatly separate the head of lettuce.
It analyses recent challenges in the agriculture industry and how robotics and technology developments will change the business of agriculture, enabling ultra-precision farming, helping to mitigate the challenges, and maintaining sustainable developments.
Cover crops. No-till. Biological diversity. Microbial health. You've heard it all before. The techniques and principles of good soil health practices are well known but not widely adopted. Why?
Increasing the rate of photosynthesis in field crops and enabling year around production of green vegetables are among the goals to be discussed at the Agri-TechE event "Let there be Light" hosted by the University of Essex Plant Innovation Centre.
Contrary to popular belief, we consistently find that growers are in fact open to adopting new technologies. That said, several criteria need to be met.
The Startup Collaborator program helps John Deere deepen its interaction with startup companies whose technology could add value for John Deere customers in the future.
After 10 years' existence, Naïo Technologies is consolidating its status as the agricultural robotics leader by being the first company in the world to certify that its large scale agricultural robots will be operating unsupervised in fields from the spring of 2022!
Environmental researchers are developing technological advancements, improving conservation and decreasing global hunger. There are five modern systems helping farmers enhance sustainability to meet the UN's preservation goals.

As consumers choose between purchases based on odours, colours and textures, the manipulation of light spectra could open up another door to richer aromatic and flavour profiles.
In July 2015, the Government of India launched a 'Digital India Programme', with a vision of driving the efforts to transform India into a digitally empowered society and a well-informed economy.
It may have been billed as a contest between man and machine. But two opposing teams in a smart agriculture competition that pit data scientists against traditional growers have since gone into business together.
Five new products, including the XAG P50 and P100 Agricultural Drone, XAG M500 and M2000 Remote Sensing Drone, and the updated XAG R150 Unmanned Ground Vehicle, are released in China and will be available for global sales in 2022.
Since the initial release of our Indoor AgTech Landscape in 2019, indoor agriculture has continued to garner tremendous attention and investment because of the compelling benefits of growing food in a controlled indoor environment.
In five to 10 years we will see more aerial and ground robots operating alongside the farmers. And farmers will be able to proactively manage their farms using modern AI capabilities and generate better yields and profits-with optimum sustainability.

"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.
