Want to know how to perform in-depth and accurate stand counts to pinpoint areas of potential yield loss and take corrective measures at key times during the growing season?
New Smart Farm technologies can give America's growers the ability to monitor crop conditions in real time, respond to technical problems before machinery breaks down in the field and consult with the world's foremost agronomic experts with the push of a button.
Melissa Yeo for Stockhead: Roots sells an underground heating and cooling system for crops that increases yields and allows crops to be grown out of season.
Drones allow you to see your entire farm from the sky, but also zoom to within inches above the plants. With resolution of 20 inches (50 cm), drones get you close enough to count individual crop rows. Satellite imagery, by comparison, has resolution of just 65 feet (20 m).
GardenSpace, a Smart Garden Robot that Waters, Monitors, and Protects Plants, Launches on Kickstarter
The GardenSpace camera sensor monitors health by determining how chlorophyll level, plant growth, and plant temperature change over time, and then sends precise information to the gardener via an accompanying app.
Jorn Madslien for BBC: The app, called Plantix, was developed thousands of miles away in Berlin, Germany, by a group of graduate students and scientists who came together to help farmers combat disease, pest damage and nutrient deficiency in their crops.
The inter-play between atmospheric processes, land-subsurface processes and agronomic processes must be considered to make irrigation decisions that promote the economical use of water and energy for the highest crop yield and quality.
Drones don't just take pictures, they capture a wealth of data about your crops' health. But how do you know which data is best to use?
Mike Wilson for Farm Futures: When IBM and Silicon Valley invest in ag, you know it's not your daddy's farm anymore.
If 29-year-old me were here in the present day looking at what's going on in agriculture, I can't help but wonder what would be going through my mind-"Do I believe what I am seeing?" or "Am I inside a Sci-Fi movie?"
In Singapore, a country with a population of more than 5.5 million on the main island that is just 26 miles wide and 14 miles long, there is a four-story rotating greenhouse, it produces 1 ton of greens every day. Normally, Singapore imports 93% of its produce.
Today, companies like Farmers Edge are installing weather stations in their customer's fields to acquire accurate, site-specific data. And having a dense network of weather stations enables detailed analyses of regional trends.
Steve Hanley for CleanTechnica: It plans to grow the equivalent of 660 outdoor acres worth of crops in less than 100,000 sq feet. "The panels are already installed and turned on, now we're building out the farm.
Drones can be used in many different ways, but not all of them lead to a high ROI. Here's the story of Caribe Drones, a company which discovered the full potential of drones by using Agremo to help farmers gain more insights into their plants and crops.
Christine McGuigan for Silicon Prairie News: Plastomics' chloroplast engineering is a platform that can efficiently introduce multiple traits into the chloroplast and enable simple, more predictable breeding of traits.
