Morgan Kelly, Princeton Environmental Institute: Princeton Universitys Vertical Farming Project began at a conference in 2016 when the topic turned to increasing the crop yield of hydroponic systems
Farming in a box is a system that uses shipping containers for the purpose of growing year-round agriculture in any environment. Farming in a box allows local food production through design and technology, facilitating anyone to grow food anyplace.
David Szondy for New Atlas: "Obviously the footprint needs to be small, so you have to go vertical. And you'll need to use artificial lighting. These are the problems we decided to solve for."
Nic Fildes for Financial Times: Farmers are placing sensors on various parts of cows bodies - including the tail, neck, hooves and stomach - to help increase the productivity of their herds.
Fly Me to the Field: How Remote Sensing Helped a Grower Spot 26% Lower Crop Rates and Recoup Planting Costs
Drone-based stand establishment for clear-cut crop counting and assessing planting efficiency.
AeroFarms: Having raised in total over $100 million in corporate and project financing, AeroFarms will used the latest round of funds for continued investment in leading R&D and technology and additional farm expansion around the world.
Sales of drones are expected to rise from 2.5 million in 2016 to 7 million in 2020, a staggering 180% increase. This means newer and more varied versions of them are constantly hitting the market, making it difficult to keep up with the different types of models.
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?
Marilyn Kalfus for the OC Register: The 300-acre sustainable community, named Miralon, is planned as one of the nations largest agricultural neighborhoods, or "agri-hoods," where new homes crop up around community farms.
Brian Spaen for GreenMatters: Theyll be farming in solar-powered greenhouses and vertical farms in densely-populated locations. This will bring in fresh crops to the community, adding to the great quality of life theyre hoping to achieve through its other sectors.
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.
Gerald Piddock for NZ Farmer: Larger farming machinery will be replaced by more efficient systems relying on emerging technologies, agricultural robotics expert Simon Blackmore says.
