A coalition of extension pathologists from five midwest universities and Ontario Ministry of Agriculture are participating in a study of SDS outbreaks to determine how to predict where they are most likely to occur and the severity of their occurrence.
Square Roots utilized refurbished upcycled shipping containers that are stacked vertically to reduce the company's impact on the land.
AI is on the cusp of driving an agricultural revolution, and helping confront the challenge of feeding our growing global population in a sustainable way. But researchers warn that using new AI technologies at scale holds huge risks that are not being considered.
Without effective organization or a convenient growing area, plants can be inadequately spaced, and growers miss out on potential profits since they aren't using their greenhouse to its full potential.
Intensifying agriculture using current farming methods will only amplify the harmful effects it has on the environment. Advances in agricultural technology may provide alternative farming methods that are less damaging and more productive.
Technology breakthroughs and innovative design have resulted in a new way to monitor and control the future of food production. Ensora Systems powers its monitoring and communications with any light - from LED light to sunlight.
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.
The multi-layer vertical farm will allow crops to grow throughout the year in any climate, in a controlled environment that mitigates risk of pathogens and maximizes taste and texture appeal.
The cleaned asparagus is transported to optical quality recognition station and from there to the appropriate collecting container, which is subdivided into different quality levels. Images of asparagus were captured by cameras and transmitted by Firewire signals.
If you're a grower who's concerned about the ongoing surge in energy prices, switching to LED lighting is a simple step you can take to mitigate against rising costs in the meantime.
The Hub will be the focal point for developing and testing new sustainable materials and bioplastics to tackle growing plastic pollution as well as investigating waste feedstock options within British agricultural operations.
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.
Everyone has a major role to play in reversing food waste, including innovators and problem solvers. Thanks to them, several new agriculture technologies are already hard at work minimizing unnecessary and avoidable waste.
Leafy greens are some of the best plants to grow hydroponically, and lettuce is an excellent plant to start out growing hydroponically. Here are some tips and tricks that will help you grow your own lettuce to reduce the growing retail prices.
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.

Artificial intelligence can be used, for example, to classify fruit varieties or to identify damaged parts, e.g. apples with marks or color deviations. To cover all possible variances with classical image processing would be very time-consuming and costly. With artificial intelligence, however, these challenges can be solved in no time at all. IDS NXT ocean is a user-friendly all-one-one system which requires neither special knowledge in deep learning nor camera programming. Only sample images and knowledge on how to evaluate them (e.g. "good apples" / "bad apples") are needed. This makes the start into AI-based image processing particularly easy. Camera hardware, software, infrastructure and support come from a single company. For beginners, IDS offer the IDS NXT ocean Creative Kit, which includes all components and workflows to create, train and run a neural net.
