Modern agriculture technologies such as crop monitoring drones, farm management software and livestock measuring sensors are just some of the tools improving crop production in a world full of depleting resources.
New propane flame weeding technology uses heat to rupture the internal cells of plants for a clean, highly effective solution for weed control that reduces reliance on herbicides and combats increasing weed resistance issues.
IDTechEx believes that the digitalization of agriculture will be more and more widely adopted. The transformation will not be overnight, and although the technology evolution is already underway, we can expect the pace of adoption to increase rapidly over the coming years.
Security is a crucial yet often overlooked consideration for modern agriculture facilities. While people most commonly associate crime with large cities, not the rural farmland, farms are popular targets.
We are moving to a world where robots need to make intelligent decisions about what to do based on what they see. Hence the need for machine learning, vision and AI.
It analyses recent challenges in the agriculture industry and how robotics and technology developments will change the business of agriculture, enabling ultra-precision farming, helping to mitigate the challenges, and maintaining sustainable developments.
The Startup Collaborator program helps John Deere deepen its interaction with startup companies whose technology could add value for John Deere customers in the future.
Environmental researchers are developing technological advancements, improving conservation and decreasing global hunger. There are five modern systems helping farmers enhance sustainability to meet the UN's preservation goals.
From Gigafactory to the Farm: Solar-powered robotics company founded by engineering and business leadership from Tesla and MIT
The world loses 24 billion tons of fertile land every year, for which erosion is responsible for a considerable portion. Farmers and other professionals that disrupt the landscape, like construction teams, must do what they can to stop this trend.
The concept of farming may be as old as the modern human race, but new advances in agricultural tech are changing the way we approach it. How are new advances in agtech working to reduce food insecurity and avoid problems with food distribution?
Five new products, including the XAG P50 and P100 Agricultural Drone, XAG M500 and M2000 Remote Sensing Drone, and the updated XAG R150 Unmanned Ground Vehicle, are released in China and will be available for global sales in 2022.
Agriculture relies heavily on water. Irrigation alone accounts for 65% of freshwater withdrawals globally, excluding thermoelectric power. It should come as no surprise, then, that water technologies are essential to agriculture's future.
New technologies have emerged and been adapted over the years, shifting away from the more traditional animal-drawn equipment and making the shift to powered tools.
Climate change may affect the production of maize (corn) and wheat as early as 2030 under a high greenhouse gas emissions scenario, according to a new NASA study published in the journal, Nature Food.

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.
