World-class site will showcase leading seeds and digital technologies and spotlight Syngenta's product development through on-farm collaboration with growers
Robotics and AI are enabling a revolution in affordable precision, which will eventually upend familiar norms in agrochemical supply, in agricultural machine design, and in farming practices.
The demand for agronomists in the agriculture industry is growing every single day. Producing profitable crops while minimizing a farmers risk and benefiting their operation in the long term is getting more and more complex every year.
The Digital Transformation of the agricultural industry started many years ago, but the current COVID-19 pandemic has sped up this process for many businesses and individuals.
UMD Researchers Lead New Multi-Institutional Grant to Examine the Legal, Economic, and Policy Implications of Solar Power on Agricultural Land
The project will assess the legal, economic, and policy implications of solar power on agricultural land to produce educational resources for Extension agents and attorneys to help farmers and rural landowners understand drawbacks and benefits to leasing their land for solar power.
The use of agbots is increasing to help with the shortage of human farm labor. Robots are being used to pick fruit, milk cows, and other jobs that formerly required human labor. These agbots have specialized arms that can perform a variety of farm duties.
To overhaul the labour-intensive rice farming industry, XAG is scaling up drone applications in China that enable night-time seeding at peak period.
Procurant Trace™ tracks the origin and distribution of fresh produce from farm to consumer to enhance trust and safety across the food supply chain.
With the number of bee colonies drastically declining around the world, SAS is using technology such as the Internet of Things (IoT), machine learning and visual analytics to help maintain and support healthy bee populations.
Seeing, localising, and taking plant-specific intelligent action are no longer the exclusive realm of humans. Machines have demonstrated the technical viability and the emphasis has long shifted to the finer details of ROI, reliability, business model, etc.
Fluence Broad Spectrum LED Lighting Selected for New High-Tech Quarantine Greenhouse in the Netherlands
This is the first time WUR has chosen LED, and specifically broad spectrum LED, as their standard lighting solution for a research greenhouse at Unifarm
Companies seek to improve soil health, optimize pest control and scale food production, and will test technologies at Danforth Plant Science Center
The delicacy of our food supply networks has been exposed, and now is the time to reflect on how our systems could change for the better, as well as our behaviour as consumers - demonstrated by those who have pledged to support local businesses more during this time.
The use of agricultural robots has significantly increased during this pandemic state, especially to boost the production of food grains, meet the cumulative demands of people for food, and fight against the dangerous COVID-19 disease.
