Agriculture is a demanding and developing industry. One farming tractor can now do in a day what used to take 100 people, a week. While the industry is literally, reaping the benefits of demand, this does provoke concerns over pesticide use and soil health.
Since water is the main carrier of nutrients, it's essential that the water have as few impurities as possible. Poor water quality may cause plants to suffer from stunted growth, nutrient deficiencies, bacterial contamination and more!
The California Air Resources Board created a new project category late last year for advanced technology demonstration projects to show the viability of new technologies, such as Solectrac's electric tractors, to perform the same work as the diesel equipment they would replace.
Linux has a lot to offer the automation industry. It is a stable and scalable alternative to Windows operating systems that allows for arguably greater connectivity between devices and systems.
Congress has a golden opportunity to create jobs and deliver nutritious, local, and sustainable produce to people who live in frontline and food desert communities. These are the people who suffer the most from a lack of access to nutritious produce.
The farmer realized it would be more cost-effective and environmentally sound to begin sourcing their electricity from the sun. Impressively, the new solar system provides enough energy to irrigate 450 hectares (1,112 acres) of corn, oat and pastures for cattle ranching.
Syngenta Announces Plans for New Seeds R&D Innovation & Customer Experience Center in Northern Illinois
World-class site will showcase leading seeds and digital technologies and spotlight Syngenta's product development through on-farm collaboration with growers
Robotics and AI are enabling a revolution in affordable precision, which will eventually upend familiar norms in agrochemical supply, in agricultural machine design, and in farming practices.
When it comes to agricultural technology, I think that some of the changes we are currently seeing will become permanent; COVID is forcing many of us to change the way we think and conduct our jobs.
The demand for agronomists in the agriculture industry is growing every single day. Producing profitable crops while minimizing a farmers risk and benefiting their operation in the long term is getting more and more complex every year.
The Digital Transformation of the agricultural industry started many years ago, but the current COVID-19 pandemic has sped up this process for many businesses and individuals.
The use of agbots is increasing to help with the shortage of human farm labor. Robots are being used to pick fruit, milk cows, and other jobs that formerly required human labor. These agbots have specialized arms that can perform a variety of farm duties.
To overhaul the labour-intensive rice farming industry, XAG is scaling up drone applications in China that enable night-time seeding at peak period.
Perdue Farms Becomes the First Poultry Company in the United States To Create a Pollinator-Friendly Habitat Throughout its Solar Installation
A pollinator-friendly ground cover consists of a variety of flowering plants that provide food in the form of nectar and pollen. It contains a mixture of plants that bloom from early spring to late fall so that flowers will be available when pollinators are active.
With the number of bee colonies drastically declining around the world, SAS is using technology such as the Internet of Things (IoT), machine learning and visual analytics to help maintain and support healthy bee populations.

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.
