Accurate observations are important and useful, but one must also get to the root of what the real problem is, understand all the sources of uncertainty, and understand that modeling techniques offer a consistent approach to filling in gaps
if health and safety is paramount in your workplace, your workers will know, and this will affect their work. They will feel secure, will feel part of a team that is cared about (as opposed to being a simple commodity), and you will also be able to attract the best staff.
Tech movement initiative helps firm support precision farming to boost crop yields, reduce water use.
I see aerial imagery analytics as a powerful technology that - if used correctly - can give the farmer the kind of insight he needs to manage the operation in real-time extremely effectively
A smart battery is a rechargeable battery that is equipped with a battery management system (BMS). Packet Digital and Vertical Partners West recently developed an intelligent battery management system for the Venom Commercial Series of drone power products.
Telematics involves precision farming solutions by automating decisions or actions at a distance. The farmers "smart" machinery would apply seeds and fertilizer at variable rates based on the soil characteristics
Even if we had perfect weather data everywhere all the time, there are many more uncertainties in a lot of the weather-driven agronomic models that attempt to predict crop stage, disease pressure, and crop performance
Weve placed an emphasis on re-thinking the approach to boost crop yield using biotechnology. By focusing on identifying bottlenecks in carbon flow to increase the efficiency of photosynthesis, we are identifying new yield trait genes that show promise in our target crops.
The farmer can ill afford having a device that he cannot depend on, is unsuitable for use in sunlight, breaks often or doesnt communicate reliably.
Chipotle Announces New Accelerator For Ventures That Are Changing The Food Landscape To Make The World Better

As his business and passion continue to flourish, Brian is preparing to expand his operations, adding more grow space and cultivating new crops, including edible flowers and mushrooms. And of course, VividGro products are prominently included in his design.
When building a container farm, key aspects are the size of the shipping container, lighting system, irrigation system, walling, and ventilation.
"With the xarvio™ SCOUTING app, anyone with a smartphone can identify weed and disease threats on a variety of crops, such as corn and soybean," said David Gray, Commercial & Business Development Manager for xarvio™.
The Spraybot delivered inch-accurate positioning and instantaneous heading. Its autonomous navigation had built-in obstacle selection and avoidance. It was designed to both detect and identify plants and rows and deliver spot spraying.

Need to increase safety? Are you using light curtains? Is space a concern? Dynatect's Gortite® VF Automated Machine Safety Door combines safety technology, speed, and a physical barrier to isolate hazardous operations. Use of a physical barrier with safety sensors can save up to 30 square feet of manufacturing space. Using the ANSI minimum safety distance formula, the Gortite® VF Door limits the depth penetration factor and average approach speed, allowing closer location of the safeguarding device. Unlike light curtains, which can't contain process hazards, an automated machine safety door can isolate common workplace debris. This physical barrier is designed to contain process driven hazards such as weld sparks, UV flash, and light debris. Thus, the operator can maintain closer proximity to the work area improving ergonomics and productivity.
