As we move from spring to summer, an interesting question arises: should those hoping for big corn yields this fall be cheering for a cooler- or warmer-than-normal summer?
For the agriculture industry, the Internet of Things (IoT) is revolutionizing the ability to improve sustainability in every area, from the field to the data center.
RippleNami Powers Kenya's First Real-time Livestock Traceability Programme Enabling Trade and Food Safety
Kenya Veterinary Association partners with RippleNami to capture critical livestock data assets. Launching this programme addresses long standing challenges such as disease control and surveillance and traceability etc.
The use of real-time data is beginning in agricultural sectors with high-value highly perishable crops such as fresh vegetables, berries and other fresh fruit. There is more communication between the field and the processor in those sectors
What you want to grow indoors are high value and short shelf-life crops that you can stack or vertically rack to grow. For instance, in pods and warehouses, you grow plants by stacking multiple beds vertically or horizontally.
FoodLogiQ announced the creation of FoodLogiQ Labs, a research and development hub dedicated to the acceleration of new products and solutions to meet the growing needs of the food industry.
Soil Health Institute Announces Methods for Evaluating Soil Health Indicators at a Continental Scale
By project conclusion in 2020, SHI expects to have the data required for recommending scientifically-sound soil health indicators to help farmers, scientists, agricultural policy makers, and others answer the fundamental question: Just how healthy are our soils?
Many smallholder farmers also lack resources to use existing precision agriculture tools they desperately need to become profitable. Rockabye aims to make lucrative farming operations accessible and more affordable.
Q & A with IntelinAir's CEO, Al Eisaian. While the march of technology continues to accelerate, I'm very excited about three things happening in the ag-tech industry in relation to aerial technology.
Advancements like nutrient monitoring and early disease detection are only possible using precise, repeatable measurements. To generate such measurements, a multispectral camera must be a "narrow band" camera.
The climate controlled farm will be powered by 100% renewable electricity and recycled irrigation water using proprietary methods that yield more than 30 times that of conventional farms, with higher levels of food safety and environmental sustainability.
Because hydroponics, aeroponics and aquaponics do not use soil, they can be established indoors in locations that have cold, severe climates. These growing methods can also be used in localities that have poor, sandy soil.
Fortunately, our ability to provide useful precipitation forecasts beyond the next few hours is not highly dependent on our ability to measure what has actually happened.
A group grid of points (or virtual sensors) are created by an initial model estimate of the conditions at the surface (and above) and that virtual sensor is then nudged by the observations around it to the more accurate value.
Thermal imagery is a game of correlation: we use long-wave infrared radiation to give us insights on the temperature profile of the field, but we can also make correlations to other weather-sensitive metrics such as grain moisture and anaerobic zones.

maxon launches the next generation of positioning controllers - the EPOS4. A high performance module with detachable pin headers and two different power ratings. With a connector board, the modules can be combined into a ready-to-install compact solution. Suitable for efficient and dynamic control of brushed and brushless DC motors with Hall sensors and encoders up to 750 W continuous power and 1500 W peak power. The modular concept also provides for a wide variety of expansion options with Ethernet-based interfaces, such as EtherCAT or absolute rotary encoders.
