A number of vendors were displaying robotic solutions at Greentech this year. These solutions ranged from newly introduced mobile harvesting robots, to more traditional stationary robots used for processes like transplanting, grading, and sorting.
Healthy soil functions as a living organism and is incredibly complex. Details like soil pH, moisture content and mycorrhizae levels affect how plants grow. Many farmers use soil tests to help them understand what's going on underground and supplement their crops.
Wilbur-Ellis Partners with Guardian Agriculture in Multi-Million Dollar Agreement to Bring Autonomous Aerial Application to Growers Across America
The largest agricultural robotics investment commitment to date brings leading innovation in autonomous aircraft to the agriculture industry
At its best, soil is an ecosystem filled with fungi, healthy bacteria and organic matter. Healthy soil protects plants from pests, reduces weed growth and sustains healthy crops year after year.
Most farm equipment either uses diesel or fossil-fuel-derived electricity, so transitioning to biofuels as an alternate fuel source could have several environmental benefits.
Agricultural yields must improve, but farms can't expand the way they have for much of their history. The solution to this problem is data analytics.
The Decarbon8 Fund announced a new Request for Proposal (RFP) for companies advancing regenerative agriculture solutions that reduce greenhouse gas emissions and other environmental impacts.
In the future, cameras could spot blackbirds feeding on grapes in a vineyard and launch drones to drive off the avian irritants, then return to watch for the next invading flock. All without a human nearby.
HydroGreen's commercial scale Automated Vertical Pastures™ technology helps meet increasing demand for valuable farm-based inset and offset carbon credits from all manner of organizations with net-zero goals.
With the Power of Autonomous Iron, Caterpillar Pulls Off the Ultimate Trick Shot in Cat Trial 12: No Hands
On a field in the middle of the Arizona desert, a soccer legend and autonomous Cat® machines use proven technology to conquer challenging obstacle courses and score a major goal in the name of safety and efficiency.
Maintaining abundant crop yields can effectively shrink society's starvation rate. Targeting greenhouse gas emissions and adverse field effects can increase global food security.
While new technology is exciting, it can carry some unforeseen risks. Here are a few of the most significant issues that tech-forward farmers face.
Transporting livestock is often more complicated than it first appears. Any unnecessary stress, movement or discomfort can jeopardize the animals' health, even resulting in death. Thankfully, innovative technology can help keep livestock safe and comfortable.
From direct seeding, pesticide spraying to fertilizer application, XAG's agricultural drones have seen its increasing popularity among rural youth who are keen to earn a decent salary as drone pilot.
Rogitex inc. wanted to verify the effects of their agricultural ag input, Humic Land, on bell pepper on yields during a winter crop. Humic Land is a highly water-soluble organic soil amendment containing high Humic Acids and Fulvic Acids.
