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.

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.

Integrating Sensors Key to Improving Environmental Conditions for Growing

When precision is needed to improve the yield of a grow room, consider all the factors that must be controlled. Integrating sensors to monitor these attributes are key to improving the environmental conditions of a grower.

The Science Behind Plant Vibration Trainer (PVT)

Most of the research I have found on the subject relates to airborne sound, but with new advances in technology, we can now create customized vibrations using transducers that can be actuated via sound files.

How Pecan Farmers Can Mitigate Ambrosia Beetle Attacks in and After This Pandemic

The pandemic brought more problems to the ongoing fight of sustainable farming and keeping up with demand with a shrinking labor force. Due to pandemic restrictions, logically farmers would have to find ways to still carry out routine functions prudent to pecan farming.

Smart Solutions Help Farmers Combat Climate Change

As farmers learn to adapt to a changing climate, the industry must also reduce its own carbon intensity by 2030 in alignment with the Paris Agreement to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Readers Choice 2020: Satellite Imaging for Agriculture

About 12% of the Earth's land is used for growing crops. As the world's population grows, greater demands are placed on agriculture than ever before, and growers are depending on satellite data to increase their crops.

Readers Choice 2020: 5G Is Coming to Agriculture

5G speeds surpass wireline network speeds and offer latency of 1 millisecond or lower, which is advantageous for applications that require real-time feedback. 5G will facilitate an increase in the amount of data transmitted over wireless systems.

So, You Want to be a Farmer

But, if you are set on becoming a farmer, there are many schools to attend and courses that you can take. There is no degree necessary to start plowing, but it would be beneficial to have a knowledge of the industry.

Challenges of Developing a Safety System for an Agricultural Site

Each industry has additional standards that must be followed. For example, earth moving equipment used in mining has additional standards than a harvester in an agricultural setting.

Cultivating Farmland Precisely and as Needed

Digitized and automated processes are becoming increasingly important in modern agricultural enterprises. Machine vision methods play a key role here. Among other things, they can be used for a variety of precision farming applications.

Smart Technology in Farming

Smart farming involves the incorporation of advanced technologies into existing farming methods in order to increase production efficiency and the quality of the agricultural products.

Traceability in the Food and Beverage Supply Chain

Manufacturing is beset by major challenges that are made worse by hyper shifts in supply and demand. Three main areas that are persistently an issue for Manufacturers are quality and safety issues, waste and underperforming assets, and high environmental impact.

Synthetic Biology in Agriculture

There are ways to improve the carbon efficiency of plants, while increasing production. By making use of diversified cropping systems growers can reduce the carbon footprint up to 300 %.

Farm Science Review 2020

For the first time, the Ohio State University's Farm Science Review, scheduled for September 22 to 24, will be a virtual show. The farm show, sponsored by Ohio State's College of Food, Agricultural and Environmental Sciences would normally have over 100,000 attendees.

igus - Maintenance-free gantry robots for vertical farming

drylin® gantry robots consist of two base X-axes, a Y-axis, and an optional Z-axis. Their self-lubricating plastic liners have been engineered to slide instead of roll and to run smoother and quieter than recirculating ball bearings. drylin® gantries are also lightweight, corrosion-resistant, maintenance-free, and cost up to 40% less than traditional gantry robots.
