The growth in the agricultural testing market is attributed to stringent safety and quality regulations for agricultural commodities and the increase in outbreaks of foodborne illnesses.
Most of the food loss comes during the process of getting it to you. A staggering fourteen percent of the food loss actually occurs in transit. Therefore, a new approach is needed. This is where farm to table logistics is a plan where the entire food's journey ...
Already, urban dwellers around the world are enjoying freshly harvested produce grown locally on spare rooftops, in old shipping containers, and in repurposed warehouses. These farms provide tremendous benefits to consumers and producers...
Enclosed facilities used in indoor farming create optimum growing conditions for farmers to grow a crop from the seed to its harvesting stages in lesser time and obtain higher yields in each cycle with limited land area.
Modern growers incorporate tools like software, sensors, and robotics into their operations. But as agriculture become increasingly digital, how do technology creators build products that are as useful as possible?
Farmers Remain Optimistic Despite Falling Index According to Latest DTN/The Progressive Farmer Ag Confidence Survey
Following one of the wettest fall harvests in recent history, farmers from across the country are demonstrating their negativity in the most recent DTN/The Progressive Farmer Agricultural Confidence Index (ACI).
Farming is one of the oldest professions in the world. That's why it's easy to overlook the role innovative technologies play in agriculture if you're not involved in the industry.
The technological advances in agriculture are not just to do with social media savvy cows - the global agricultural robots market was estimated to account for a market revenue of $2,927 million in 2016, but is expected to rocket to $11,050 million in 2023.
If we can incorporate technology into already existing farming practices, we can increase production enough to feed the growing world. Technology can be used to grow more food on existing farms and to grow food in small spaces, such as indoor farms.
I see aerial imagery analytics as a powerful technology that - if used correctly - can give the farmer the kind of insight he needs to manage the operation in real-time extremely effectively
Farming is one of the areas in which smart robots would revolutionize the ways in which it has been done till now. Governments, tech companies, and farming industry have been designing robots that would bring efficiency in the farming.
"2018 Early-Stage Agtech Report," provides new insight into global early stage financing activity and trends in leading agtech innovation geographies.
Of all the new technologies appearing on the farm, "remote sensing" systems (devices that measure conditions from a distance, commonly an aircraft or satellite) are unique in their ability to deliver information on the existing conditions in the field.
Eco Convergence Group Launches World's First HyCube™ Hydroponic Production System at Orlando World Center Marriott
Innovative technology and structure changes how produce will be sourced by hotels and restaurants.
Last year recorded groundbreaking technological advances in agriculture, even as the ag giants focused on consolidation. In looking back over the trends that shaped 2017, we can locate the signs pointing to the big stories we anticipate this year.

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.
