The agricultural sector is undergoing significant changes and is modernising. To take the strain off farmers, many robots are being developed to automate tasks. What specific technical characteristics should ag machinery manufacturers take into account to assist farmers?
With the time spent meticulously seeding each plug not to mention the space constraints in any seedling set-up, it's imperative that you get enough healthy seedlings out of each tray to stay on schedule.
Bayer and Temasek Unveil Innovative New Company Focused on Developing Breakthroughs in Vertical Farming
-Initial efforts will focus on innovating vegetable varieties that deliver optimized quality and sensory experience -Called Unfold, the new company will be headquartered in the Davis, Calif., area with key operations in both the U.S. and Singapore -John Purcell appointed as CEO
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.

The next evolution in Dorner's Edge Roller Technology conveyor platform, the ERT®150, is ideal for small and light-load assembly automation, as well as medical and medical-device assembly application. The ERT platform is the only pallet conveyor of its kind available with an ISO Standard Class 4 rating for cleanroom applications. Earning the ISO Standard 14644-1 Class 4 rating means Dorner's ERT150 will conform and not contribute to the contamination of cleanrooms to those standards. As implied by its name, the ERT150 (Edge Roller Technology) uses rollers to move pallets through the conveyor smoothly with no friction (a byproduct often seen in belt-driven platforms). The conveyor's open design eliminates concerns of small parts or screws dropping into rollers and causing conveyor damage or jamming. The ERT150 is suited to operate in cleanroom environments requiring a pallet handling conveyor. It is capable of zoning for no or low-back pressure accumulation and is ideal for automation assembly applications within industries including medical devices, electronics, consumer goods among others.
