Drone Powered by Solar Energy

Just like a satellite, SolarXOne is packed with technologies. Half airplane, half drone, this UAV weighs 25 kg, has a 4.50 m wingspan, and is innovative in several ways.

Advances in artificial intelligence (AI) and Internet of Things (IoT) for Precision Growing

I think it is fair to say that most farmers know that things need to change. The Agriculture industry is littered with legacy systems that are outdated and ineffective.

Vertical Farming and the Future of Automation in Agriculture

A new generation of farmers are rising to the sustainability challenge. This agricultural revolution presents the transition from traditional farming to futuristic high-tech artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics.

Pivotal Point: New Shaft Solves Corrosion Issue in Agriculture Equipment

GKF is a carbon alloy shaft that is an alternative to zinc and chrome plating corrosion inhibitors. GKF provides a hardened and corrosion-resistant running surface that will optimize the performance of the company's iglide bushings.

Recent innovations in turning Agricultural Waste into Biofuels

Wastes from fields and wastes from processing are the two kinds of agricultural wastes. Field wastes are present after harvesting crops and include stems, leaves, and stalks, and waste after processing crops includes seeds, peels, husks, etc.

Cosy Climate in the Greenhouse - Climate Sensors Ensure Optimum Growing Conditions

CO2, humidity and temperature sensors must provide accurate and reliable measurement results to the climate control system in the greenhouse. Inaccurate or even false readings impact on productivity and, in the worst case, can jeopardize the entire harvest.

7 Strategies to Improve Cannabis Lighting

While there are lighting fundamentals that apply no matter what type of facility growers are operating, there are certain strategies that indoor growers must use to be successful that are different than approaches greenhouse growers take.

Our Future Depends on the Digitization of Agriculture

While yields are attractive, vertical farms have significant capital required for infrastructure, high land costs, and of course significant energy demands. The reality of these COG dynamics requires that vertical farm operators work hard to optimize their production.

The Absorption and Action Spectrum and the Benefits of Green Light

Light has a complex relationship with plants. When the light touches a leaf, it can be absorbed by, reflected from, or transmitted through to other leaves. Plants appear green to us because they reflect and transmit slightly more green light than they do blue or red.

This Rocks: Terraclear's Rock-picking Robot Increases Productivity for Farmers

By using a computer vision-controlled system to map terrain and identify the size and location of rocks embedded in the soil, the heavy lifting is done by automated machinery which saves farmers a lot of time and money.

Supplemental Greenhouse Lighting: Hacking the Sun to Grow Your Business

Growers who are able to optimize the supplemental light they provide to plants can eliminate seasonal changes in production cycles, increase crop production, ensure crop consistency and grow quality plants year-round.

A Starters Guide to the IIoT and Automation in Agriculture

What is automation? How can automation help farmers do more with less? Is automation in agriculture a good idea? How is automation transforming the farming industry? Farmer's exploring technology tend to ask the same questions.

Vertical Farming and the Future of Automation in Agriculture

Right now, the focus is to take vertical farming to the next level by developing smart robots which can increase precision and productivity, while minimizing environmental impact and risk.

Vertical Farming: Turning Deserts into Fresh Food Hubs

Vertical farming technologies allow for collecting the humidity produced by plants. With recirculating and recycling techniques, hydroponic and aquaponic systems can reuse 98% of water, which makes vertical farms feasible in deserts.

From Picking Tomatoes to Vaccinating Fish, Agricultural Robots Show Future of Farming

The future of farming was on display at the recent "First China Agricultural Robot Innovation Competition" as teams from universities, scientific research institutes and technology companies showcased their innovations.
