XPRIZE designs and operates global competitions to incentivize the development of technological breakthroughs that accelerate humanity toward a better future.
We'll focus on three major sources of data that are used in various degrees for irrigation scheduling support. My premise here is that these data sources have not remained static but have indeed improved significantly over time.
For agricultural and biological engineers this new industrial era vindicates what we have been pursuing all along, and it shines a spotlight on our role in addressing one of humanity's grand challenges: designing resilient and sustainable food systems for the planet.
Precision agriculture technologies, particularly irrigation technologies, are still trying to prove their worth to producers in a way that would make them willing to leave the old ways behind to explore these new technologies for field operations.
In a nutshell, by bringing artificial intelligence and around-the-clock activity, the robots will help optimize the yield of the farms far beyond what could humanly be possible. Maximizing the production while minimizing the costs in energy, water, time.
This integration removes communication hand-off costs and risk, ensuring that everybody responsible for keeping fields healthy is aligned in real-time.
"The robot saves at least five hours in transport time a week, and the working day is quieter and calmer," Broberg said. "I already take 15,000 to 17,000 steps a day in my job, so I definitely don't miss the walk to the pallet stacker."
With many on-farm processes being repetitive, occurring at inconvenient times of the day or night, and having adverse effects on worker health and safety, the agricultural sector has the opportunity to develop and use autonomous machinery on-farm.
By positioning sensors, farmers can understand their crops at a micro scale, sustain resources, and reduce environmental impact.
Indigo Agriculture Launches Indigo Transport™, a Digital Logistics Platform to Expand Options for Growers and Streamline the Agriculture Supply Chain
Indigo Transport manages the pick-up, transportation, and delivery of grain between shipper and buyer. By offering a network of independent carriers for transporting grain around the country, the platform enables growers to accept the best bid for their crop.
Technology can, and already does, aid agriculture in innumerable ways. One prominent part of agriculture that can use technological innovation to increase efficiency and effectiveness is irrigation.
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?
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.
New Documentary Sponsored by Joyce Farms Educates Farmers on Lowering Costs and Improving Yields With Regenerative Methods
A Regenerative Secret, the newly released documentary sponsored by Joyce Farms, aims to build awareness for the transformative practice of regenerative agriculture, a method of farming that the company made standard practice on its farms in 2018.
Models and data analytics not only recap what is already occurring between water and plants across expansive rows of corn, they can actually predict what will come in the hours, days and weeks ahead.

Precision Farming - Featured Product
maxon launches the next generation of positioning controllers - the EPOS4. A high performance module with detachable pin headers and two different power ratings. With a connector board, the modules can be combined into a ready-to-install compact solution. Suitable for efficient and dynamic control of brushed and brushless DC motors with Hall sensors and encoders up to 750 W continuous power and 1500 W peak power. The modular concept also provides for a wide variety of expansion options with Ethernet-based interfaces, such as EtherCAT or absolute rotary encoders.
