Farmers should care most about "providing safe, healthy, abundant and affordable food," said a majority of survey takers. Yet those same respondents would prefer their food come from smaller/specialty, local or organic farms-which can't necessarily compete on cost.
The remote sensing technology in the precision farming market is expected to witness a growth rate of over 17% over the forecast timeline.
First-of-its-Kind Consortium Develops Crops Intended for Indoor Agriculture
The developing requirement for smart cultivating inferable from the massively rising populace is one of the key factors that is anticipated to enhance the development of the global smart greenhouse market in the following couple of years.
Lights block out stars on clear nights and create bright, colourful skies on overcast nights
The vertical farming technique offers speedier supply chain for seedling production and with an eight-week turnaround time of seedling ordering system.
Current, powered by GE celebrated the opening of CHAPs new Vertical Farming Development Facility, supported by Innovate UK and based at Stockbridge Technology Centre (STC).
Soil Health Institute Announces Methods for Evaluating Soil Health Indicators at a Continental Scale
By project conclusion in 2020, SHI expects to have the data required for recommending scientifically-sound soil health indicators to help farmers, scientists, agricultural policy makers, and others answer the fundamental question: Just how healthy are our soils?
The first project partners with industry to use robotics to aid farmers with mobility impairments. The Partnership for Innovation grant is a collaborative effort between Virginia Techs College of Engineering and the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences,
There are many different types of potential applications of AI in agriculture -- ranging from machine control, to image analysis, to improving our understanding of where, when, and how a crop might respond toparticular environmental conditions.
Amy Crawford for CityLab: A global analysis finds that urban agriculture could yield up to 10 percent of many food crops, plus a host of positive side benefits.
Gina Belli for Pay Scale: There arent enough young farmers in this new generation to replace the ones who are retiring. But, the shift could "contribute to the growth of the local food movement and could help preserve the place of midsize farms in the rural landscape"
Diana Gitig for Ars Technica: "We find that the current distribution of crops around the world neither attains maximum production nor minimum water use."
Morgan Kelly, Princeton Environmental Institute: Princeton Universitys Vertical Farming Project began at a conference in 2016 when the topic turned to increasing the crop yield of hydroponic systems
USAgNet: So what are retailers anticipating in 2017? Some 59% of all dealers forecast revenue growth of at least 2% this year, with about 15% projecting growth of at least 8%.
