While there has been significant growth in the agricultural sensors industry, there is still a lot more to be done. As of now, sensors contribute to just a part of the precision farming industry.
The tool making these water measurements possible is a tiny graphene sensor that can be taped to plants - researchers have dubbed it a "plant tattoo sensor."
Use of Renewable energy sources in agriculture production process not only will solve problems of energy and water scarcity but will ensure food security and enhance sustainable agriculture in Pakistan.
The Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (or NDVI) has been used for the past 40 years as the go-to method of assessing plant health. As you may know, healthy plants reflect light differently than unhealthy ones.
Hopefully, as confidence grows in our ability to forecast weather and soil conditions, much value will be extracted for more efficient operations, higher yields, and better environmental stewardship.
2017 - Most Popular Article - How do drones help farmers? They increase yields, save time, increase return on investment, are easy to use, crop health imaging, water efficiency and other environmental benefits. Look to the sky.
Second Generation Growlink Environment Controllers Introduce New Remote Sensor Module with Additional Light and VPD Readings
All three models include the new Wireless ESM1 Environment Sensor Module, a shielded device designed to hang in the canopy that measures temperature, humidity, VPD, light and CO2.
Vertical farms integrated into urban environments do not only decrease the pressure of cities on rural areas, but they will provide sustainable local solutions to a large variety of issues such as urban wastewater management and valorization of urban solid organic waste.
Farmers actively use some 26 apps on a regular basis. The apps here are just a few. New technologies such as the Internet of Things and Cloud Computing are expected to leverage this development and introduce more robots and artificial intelligence in farming.
There Is no experience like CES with the largest global gathering of innovation and the connected future of technology with 4,000 exhibiting companies-600 of which are new.
Versatile, easy-to-deploy LED systems designed to increase plant density, yield and quality while reducing installation and operating costs.
For the farming community, high-speed internet has unlocked the power of Internet of things (IoT) applications allowing them to tap into internet-connected systems where they can monitor and control drying data on the move and much more.
Reverse osmosis systems have a downside. The water produced from the system eventually attacks everything made of metal in the greenhouse, such as stainless steel enclosures. Why? Because this water is attracted to the minerals in the metal.
It does seem a bit strange to have the word "drone" used to not only cover a $30 hobby aircraft that a child can fly, but to also describe a high-tech $10 million weapon used on a battlefield. Those devices don't exactly serve the same purpose. So why don't they have differe
We asked the team at Trifecta Ecosystems to share their experience switching from a world of pen & paper to the digital world of Agrilyst & barcodes.

The patented Chip Trapper offers a fast, easy way to clean chips, swarf and shavings out of used coolants and other liquids. The Chip Trapper vacuums the coolant or liquid that is filled with debris and traps all the solids in a reusable filter bag. Only the liquid pumps back out. It is ideal for use on machines with sumps, parts washers, tanks and storage containers of contaminated liquids. The Chip Trapper uses EXAIR's compressed air powered Reversible Drum Vac (included) that can fill or empty a 55 gallon drum in less than two minutes. Simply set the Reversible Drum Vac pump and directional flow control valve on top of the drum to "fill" for it to quickly vacuum the liquid with solids. Once the sump, pit or tank is empty, set the pump and directional valve to "empty" for it to pump out clean coolant/liquid. All the chips and other solids are trapped inside the reusable filter bag of the Chip Trapper. Learn more here
