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.
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.
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
Partnership comes as Fifth Season announces opening of industry-leading vertical farm, expanded partnerships with Whole Foods and Giant Eagle, and its innovative direct-to-consumer e-commerce platform
As a vital resource for plant-growing, water plays an especially important role in agriculture. This article examines the importance of water quality monitoring with regard to indoor agriculture, and how IoT water sensors are key to enhancing crop yield.
Supporters of vertical farming claim it could revolutionise global food production, practically eliminating food miles by enabling crop growth right next to urban population centres, paving the way for the future of smart cities.
Developed for military use, during the last decade, infrared scanning has become a widespread technology for applications such as predicting water stress in crops, fruit yield, planning irrigation scheduling, detecting disease and pathogens, and evaluating fruit maturation.
Members of World-leading UK Agri-Tech Association Visit St. Louis, See Tremendous Opportunities within the Ag Coast of America
"Ag products and other commodities can get from the St. Louis region to 70% of the U.S. in just two days via truck," Wilmsmeyer said.
FarmERP has provided its entire platform to the Phoenix Group. The data captured through the software is collected and provided to the group which is then analyzed and managed over their platform.
Can we really feed 40,000 people with a 'SkyFarm'? Or will everyone in London have a 'Personal Food Computer' by 2040? These are the sorts of provocative questions being posed ahead of the upcoming Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA) conference.
While most of us think that growing crops involves planting seeds, there's actually another way...cloning! Cloning might sound like a complicated process involving mad scientists, but it's actually quite simple.
AeroFarms has the right idea bringing an advanced technology that is creating jobs and opportunities for development research to a state with such a rich farming history.
Like many other industries, agriculture has discovered the benefits of data mobility, industry 4.0, and new technologies that unlock productivity and cost savings.
Growers must consider several factors when selecting a product configuration: their cultivation setup and environment, and their desired crop.
As the availability and volume of data to help us understand what is happening or will happen in an agricultural field or orchard continues to grow exponentially, the challenge we now face is how to collect, synthesize and use this data.

Allied Vision's compact and light weight Alvium SWIR (short wave infrared) cameras are the ideal choice to build cost-effective OEM systems used in embedded and machine vision applications. The cameras support a spectral range from 400 nm to 1700 nm at high quantum efficiencies. This allows to capture images in both the visible and SWIR spectra with a single camera and enables users to reduce overall system costs! Equipped with Sony's IMX990 and IMX991 SenSWIR InGaAs sensors, Alvium SWIR cameras deliver high image quality and frame rates. This makes them well suited for drones or handheld devices used in various industries such as, agriculture, mining, solar cell inspection or medical.
