Remote Sensing of Vegetation Using SWIR Cameras on a UAV

Forage Mass Monitoring (FFM) analysis has been traditionally done using biomass sampling to calculate biomass yield per hectare (t ha-1). Current research is now looking at reflectance spectroscopy methods using remote sensing systems based on unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).

XAG Suggests Drones Could Outsmart Locust Swarms at Night

As African countries are getting prepared for the imminent locust crisis, the smart agtech company XAG has proposed that agricultural drones, through more targeted night spraying application, can strongly support the current ground and aerial control measures.

Integrating Big Data Analytics Into Farm Management

By creating opportunities for intimate management of large operations without needing the traditional manpower and time investment, almost all processes from yield projection to harvest can be improved with the application of Big Data Analysis to farm management.

Sun to Table: SMA inverter harvesting energy at Just A Few Acres Farm for 12 years

The array at Just A Few Acres features thirty-six, 170-watt panels, amounting to a cumulative 6.2 kilowatt capacity. The panels are framed by three poles that can be manually tilted throughout the year to accommodate for seasonal changes in the sun's position.

American Robotics Becomes First Company Approved by the FAA To Operate Automated Drones Without Human Operators On-Site

Auburn University researcher studying poultry wastewater as way to irrigate crops

As freshwater supplies become increasingly limited and the world's population continues to grow, Auburn University College of Agriculture researchers are working on ways to find and utilize alternative water resources for irrigating crops.

How Big Data Can Manage Smart Farming

Farming has never been an exact science. Nature is unpredictable and oftentimes unforgiving. Even the slightest changes to weather patterns and temperature can decimate whole fields if they're not harvested in time.

Technology Beats Humans at Growing Strawberries at Greenhouses in Pinduoduo Smart Agriculture Competition

The four technology teams, which employed data analysis, intelligent sensors and greenhouse automation, produced an average of 6.86 kilograms of strawberries, or 196% more than the 2.32 kilograms average for the three teams of traditional growers.

How COVID-19 is Changing the Way We Do Business

Some of the effects of this pandemic on how we work, live and interact with each other are likely to last much longer than the pandemic itself. I thought it useful to list some of the effects we're likely to experience in ag retail & agronomy.

5 Innovative Agritech For Small Farms

With agritech, farmers are able to better understand their crops at a smaller scale, conserve resources, and reduce environmental impacts. And now, this technology has blended into smaller farms and producers.

Happy New Year from Atlas, Spot and Handle

The Boston Dynamics crew got together to celebrate the start of what we all hope will be a happier year. Happy New Year from all of us.

Use of AI and Big Data Analytics in AgriTech

Satellites, UAVs, and remote sensors have been created that monitor farms for 24 hours per day consistently, hence, empowering the farmers to screen their yields in a superior manner and be updated in real-time about the perfect time for harvest.

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: Age Of Agriculture Robots: Fruit-Picking Robots And Drones To Take Over Farms

What's more, from shepherding to nursery planting, robots have already made their way into the agriculture industry. The death of skilled labor is another factor that propels the demand for agricultural robots.

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.

The ERT150 - Dorner’s Next Evolution of Edge Roller Technology Conveyors

The ERT150 - Dorner's Next Evolution of Edge Roller Technology Conveyors

The next evolution in Dorner's Edge Roller Technology conveyor platform, the ERT®150, is ideal for small and light-load assembly automation, as well as medical and medical-device assembly application. The ERT platform is the only pallet conveyor of its kind available with an ISO Standard Class 4 rating for cleanroom applications. Earning the ISO Standard 14644-1 Class 4 rating means Dorner's ERT150 will conform and not contribute to the contamination of cleanrooms to those standards. As implied by its name, the ERT150 (Edge Roller Technology) uses rollers to move pallets through the conveyor smoothly with no friction (a byproduct often seen in belt-driven platforms). The conveyor's open design eliminates concerns of small parts or screws dropping into rollers and causing conveyor damage or jamming. The ERT150 is suited to operate in cleanroom environments requiring a pallet handling conveyor. It is capable of zoning for no or low-back pressure accumulation and is ideal for automation assembly applications within industries including medical devices, electronics, consumer goods among others.
