Introducing the lettuce peeling robot
Cambridge researchers have developed what is believed to be the first robotic lettuce leaf peeling system of its kind.
Robots fight weeds in challenge to agrochemical giants
In a field of sugar beet in Switzerland, a solar-powered robot that looks like a table on wheels scans the rows of crops with its camera, identifies weeds and zaps them with jets of blue liquid from its mechanical tentacles.
The Promise of Indoor, Hurricane-Proof 'Vertical' Farms
Meagan Flynn for The Atlantic: They might be an efficient way to produce food in a world with more-extreme weather-but only if growers can figure out a successful business model.
Luminescent Solar Concentrators for Greenhouses
Shaped like a pane of glass, a luminescent solar concentrator is typically transparent, but contains a luminescent dye that absorbs light within a particular spectral range, then re-emits the light at a different wavelength.
Bay Area aerial imaging startup teams up to detect disease in crops before outbreaks
