Grow Pod Solutions has developed the world's most advanced growing pods. Their container farms are fully automated, and feature innovations such as greenhouse control software, Bipolar Ionization, automatic dosing, fertigation scheduling and full-time surveillance.
Vertical farms integrated into urban environments do not only decrease the pressure of cities on rural areas, but they will provide sustainable local solutions to a large variety of issues such as urban wastewater management and valorization of urban solid organic waste.
Steve Gillman for Horizon: Rising populations and climate change are putting pressure on the water needed for agriculture but a solar-powered irrigation system may reduce the amount that farmers use - while simultaneously slashing the sectors greenhouse gas emissions.
Seung Lee for The Mercury News: An Oakland-based startup is sending its aerial imaging technology to the Midwestern plains to help farmers detect pests and diseases in their corn and soybean fields before an outbreak.
Farmers actively use some 26 apps on a regular basis. The apps here are just a few. New technologies such as the Internet of Things and Cloud Computing are expected to leverage this development and introduce more robots and artificial intelligence in farming.
Jim Breen for Agriland: As a leading farm equipment company, we strive to anticipate technological change. Case IH already offers technologies that play a part in this exciting new era.
There Is no experience like CES with the largest global gathering of innovation and the connected future of technology with 4,000 exhibiting companies-600 of which are new.
Versatile, easy-to-deploy LED systems designed to increase plant density, yield and quality while reducing installation and operating costs.
Gina Belli for Pay Scale: There arent enough young farmers in this new generation to replace the ones who are retiring. But, the shift could "contribute to the growth of the local food movement and could help preserve the place of midsize farms in the rural landscape"
The new 1,200 square-foot farm uses hydroponics (growing plants in a water-based nutrient solution, instead of soil) and efficient new LED lights to grow rare produce in a controlled environment, year-round.
For the farming community, high-speed internet has unlocked the power of Internet of things (IoT) applications allowing them to tap into internet-connected systems where they can monitor and control drying data on the move and much more.
Reverse osmosis systems have a downside. The water produced from the system eventually attacks everything made of metal in the greenhouse, such as stainless steel enclosures. Why? Because this water is attracted to the minerals in the metal.
Pranbihanga Borpuzari for ET Online: A robotic arm uses these coordinates to pick the cotton and the arm, then uses a vacuum for precision picking of cotton and avoids picking any other contaminant.
It does seem a bit strange to have the word "drone" used to not only cover a $30 hobby aircraft that a child can fly, but to also describe a high-tech $10 million weapon used on a battlefield. Those devices don't exactly serve the same purpose. So why don't they have differe
We asked the team at Trifecta Ecosystems to share their experience switching from a world of pen & paper to the digital world of Agrilyst & barcodes.

Why is compressed air safety a concern? How Cabinet Coolers Can End Costly Shutdowns A low cost, reliable way to cool and purge electronic control panels. EXAIR Cabinet Coolers incorporate a vortex tube to produce cold air from compressed air - with no moving parts. NEMA 12, 4, and 4X Cabinet Coolers that match the NEMA rating of the enclosure are available in many cooling capacities for large and small control panels. Cabinet Coolers convert an ordinary supply of compressed air into clean, cold 20ºF air.
