Why Farmers Should Reconsider Pesticide Use - The Value of Pest Monitoring for Sustainability

It is important to recognize that many aspects of the negative connotations that come along with modern pesticides are largely rooted in how the pesticides are used, not necessarily how they work.

Cranberry Farm Goes High-Tech

Previously, Lee relied on hand-held digital and mercury thermometers to monitor the bogs' nighttime temperatures, but he wanted a more autonomous and hierarchical system that allowed for continuous monitoring of multiple variables.

Precision Fertilization Protects Groundwater

The new Aero fertilizer spreaders from agricultural machinery manufacturer RAUCH put the mineral fertilizer exactly where it is needed and in just the right quantity. Motors from FAULHABER assist with the precision dosing.

4 Things To Consider When Comparing LED Lighting Systems

Although many of the currently available LED fixtures look similar and often utilize many identical components it is still important to fully explore performance metrics when evaluating lighting options.

Data and Connectivity, The Key to Agriculture 4.0

If you don't have any data, how do you know what you are doing is right - or even a good thing? Connectivity provides a means to get the data from the fields. The data can then be analyzed to provide insights for better yields or cost savings or efficiencies.

Technology Solutions Are Needed More Than Ever to Address Growing Agri-food Supply Chain Issues

The scale and complex nature of the agri-food supply chain creates numerous vulnerabilities across all stages in the face of modern challenges.

Tips to Leverage Your Cash Flow and Invest Where It Matters

Managing the cash flow needed to yield a successful crop can be challenging. Gains are greatest when agronomic and economic benefits of input purchases are considered and revisited throughout the crop year.

Lighting the Way to Sustainable Agriculture

In the grow, 16 ft. towers holding layers of hydroponic beds maximize their growing space and minimize waste production to as low as 5%, and with a reliance on hydropower, no excess C02 is released into the atmosphere.

Greenhouse Kits: Finding the Ideal Prefab Greenhouse for Your Operation

If growers don't want to go the custom route with their new greenhouse, they can obtain a prefab greenhouse. Typically available as greenhouse kits, a prefab greenhouse can offer a simpler, streamlined choice for many operations.

Introducing Sustainable Packaging in Food Production

One major area where consumers demand more sustainability and accountability is packaging, particularly in foods. There's a push for more recyclable, compostable, or otherwise environmentally packaging options.

What Will Pest Management Look Like in the Future?

Most farmers would probably agree that pest monitoring and management is an ever-evolving practice that requires undivided attention to both your crops and trends in the pest space. That's because insects are constantly evolving.

Six Key Factors Driving Consumer-Mandated Supply Chain Transparency

With consumers increasing the need for food supply chain transparency, we dive into six key factors driving these demands.

Lighting Uniformity in Horticulture

Lighting uniformity in architecture has been a topic of interest for at least seventy years (e.g., IES 1947), where the goal is to encompass the range of illuminance values measured at an array of positions on a horizontal plane, all in a single metric.

Maximizing Shaft and Bearing Lifetimes in Agricultural Machinery

To optimize wear and friction values, shaft and bearing materials that work together harmoniously are crucial. The interdependence of material pairs constitutes a major challenge for bearing and shaft manufacturers.

The Smart Future of Agriculture

Smart farming uses modern technologies to increase the efficiency of agriculture, to use all resources more sparingly, to relieve people from monotonous work and to produce higher yields.

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.
