Recently, much media coverage has exposed the existence of so-called "forever chemicals," known as PFAS, or Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances. Over the years, PFAS have become widespread in the environment - including water supplies around the world.
Here's a guide to help you understand what urban gardening entails and why it is the key to meeting growing demand while helping urban consumers and communities exercise control over the way their food is grown.
At Warren Farms, Mack and his father explored more innovative approaches to maximizing their yields. They started by upgrading their equipment for specific areas as well as flat-rating higher amounts of fertilizer.
Cannabis is well-known to be a resource-intensive crop. From lighting to water to HVAC to soil, there are numerous factors that affect production, morphology, costs, and waste.
In England, agricultural technology and machinery experts are working with IDS Imaging Development Systems GmbH (Obersulm, Germany) to develop a robotic solution to automate lettuce harvesting.
Up-and-coming companies such as the Dutch Pixelfarming Robotics are developing systems that have the potential to change agriculture long term. One of the keys for the global success: a smart energy system, that is tailored for agricultural applications!
Hectre are bringing clever simplicity to the US orchard industry, delivering gains to fruit farmers. The popular NZ fruit tech company were named winners in the global AgTech BreakThrough Awards and are now double finalists in another prestigious awards program.
Controlled environment agriculture will likely play a critical role in the future of crop production. Both commercially and locally, operations that use this growing strategy can produce crops year-round, while improving the quality and size of their harvests.
Agriculture is BIG Business. Despite its obvious importance in our lives, most of us are unaware of the actual size of agriculture as a market by itself - currently, a $9 trillion market employing about 27 percent of the world's population.
A distributed network of farms and farmers means that our technology is able to effect change on a greater scale. In our goal to move farms, not food, we strive to create resiliency in food supply chains and greater food access across the world
Recognizing organic and multi-variant objects is no easy challenge in machine vision. However, the situation is different when using intelligent cameras such as those of the IDS NXT series.
By transitioning to more environmentally sustainable practices, cultivators can reduce waste, address climate change, and improve cannabis sustainability.
To reap all the benefits of the new wave of innovation, there needs to be collaboration between governments, big corporations, small and large farmers, landowners, and technology companies.
By placing the camera inside the gripper, the position of the camera is fully controllable. The camera can point its optical axis at the apple, reducing image distortion and eliminating repetitive calibration steps during apple picking.
In this blog post, we'll lay out typical preventative maintenance measures for skid steers and talk about how you can use self-lubricating plastic components to design machinery with less maintenance requirements.

Image processing opens up a wide range of possibilities for the automation of modern agriculture - but what to do when only a small budget is available? That is where the uEye XLS comes in. With the launch of these super-small industrial cameras, even price-sensitive applications and volume projects become feasible. Measuring just 29 x 29 x 7 mm, the compact cameras offer excellent imaging characteristics without excessive heat generation, making them a perfect fit for embedded vision applications in agricultural machinery and equipment. The industrial cameras comply with the vision standard and are available with Micro-B connectors and with or without C/CS or S-mount lens holders, further increasing their adaptability to different agricultural environments. Thanks to these features, the cameras offered by IDS Imaging Development Systems lower the barriers to entry and make it easier to explore the potential of vision technology to optimize agricultural processes.
