Matt Hickman for Mother Nature Network: Seawater is pumped to the greenhouse installation where its used to cool and humidify the hot desert air drawn into the structures growing area using fans before going through an evaporation process that distills saltwater
A sensor without the red edge band may still enable the detection of stress and disease, but it may be after there is a chance to recover yield potential which would result in a reduction of profit per acre.
Janice Cantieri for National Geographic: Instead of trapping heat, these greenhouses are made with breathable, aluminum-coated cloth netting that reflects some of the sunlight, reducing inside temperatures.
Its the underlying science tools and heroes of the digital agriculture movement - specifically, machine learning and predictive modeling - that are central to the success of delivering a digital transformation.
Multispectral cameras capture spectral signatures much like a thermometer measures the temperature of the human body. Changes in plant reflectance indicate stress, but additional information is required to identify the cause.

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.
