Digitized and automated processes are becoming increasingly important in modern agricultural enterprises. Machine vision methods play a key role here. Among other things, they can be used for a variety of precision farming applications.
Smart farming involves the incorporation of advanced technologies into existing farming methods in order to increase production efficiency and the quality of the agricultural products.
Farmers have had good scouting imagery technology for many years now, and this is an area that is ripe with new opportunity from automation and artificial intelligence. Thanks to innovations from emerging ag-tech startups, the technology is evolving quickly.
Selecting the most suitable energy source, like biogas, is critical. With the right system in place, farmers can benefit from a powerful and cost-effective fuel supply to run a multitude of operations, no matter how energy-intensive their processes may be.
COVID-19 is forcing the agriculture industry to re-examine long-held practices and bringing new regulations for safety. Farms that made the move to digital are better equipped to efficiently communicate and work with their labor force, but it's not too late to catch up.
Malaysia, Indonesia and Thailand are also responsible for producing more than 90 per cent of global palm oil, which consequently causes 27 million tonnes of waste per annum from fruit bunches (EFBs), fibres, shells and liquid effluent.

There are ways to improve the carbon efficiency of plants, while increasing production. By making use of diversified cropping systems growers can reduce the carbon footprint up to 300 %.
The emerging solutions will help to improve crop yield and quality; optimize production efficiency and costs; reduce waste and carbon emissions from agricultural operations; further enhance food safety and security; and strengthen overall farm management.
With advancements in satellite technology, imagery can be taken from peak biomass to create a zone map based on how the crop performs out in the field. These maps generally look very close to how the yield map will look after harvest.
To optimize its automation infrastructure, the farm required an advanced control network to monitor the anaerobic digestion process and maximize productivity. CC-Link IE Field provided the right solution.
The agricultural sector is undergoing significant changes and is modernising. To take the strain off farmers, many robots are being developed to automate tasks. What specific technical characteristics should ag machinery manufacturers take into account to assist farmers?
The rising public awareness on the harmful effects of food produced from conventional chemical-fertilizer-based agriculture, the growing health consciousness of the masses, especially in North American and European countries, is also pushing up the demand for organic food.
While the reality of the current season's challenges is still fresh in our minds, it's a lot easier to apply this knowledge to future plans and ensure they are accurate and grounded in reality.
The possibilities offered for agriculture by new technologies, big data and the rise of the Internet of Things (IoT) makes precision agriculture a market that's sure to grow over the coming years.
