Beyond providing power to farm structures, solar energy can power agricultural operations such as crop irrigation, rangeland livestock watering, security systems, and is contributing to solar innovations in equipment.
Population Growth, Less Arable Land, and Sustainability Driving Demand for Controlled-Release Fertilizers
China and U.S. driving most of global demand growth for these environmentally friendly alternatives to conventional fertilizers.
Efforts seek to improve water use efficiency, enrich outdoor environments and drive sustainable agriculture in communities and among rural families in developing countries
To find sustainability and success, farmers need to mimic nature. Holistic farm management does not function without establishing goals and values that fit with the quality of life that a farmer is trying to accomplish.
Farmers can now obtain a whole-field plant count from a single drone flight
Open AgTech Announces New API Standard Enabling Growers to Use Technology to Its Fullest Within Greenhouses and Vertical Farms
Technologists come together to form new standard for connecting hardware and software for the indoor agriculture industry.
This method could render crops more resilient against disease, helping mitigate crop wastage throughout the world. Since the system can be implemented by re-wiring plants' natural defence mechanisms, no external genetic circuitry needs to be added.
The intensive plant nursery, located in North Lincolnshire, England, will be the largest indoor farm in Europe, producing up to 420 tonnes of leafy greens per year across a growing area of 5120m2, arranged in racks rising to the height of 11m.
"We think this is the best use-case of AI (Artificial Intelligence) today. We've basically turned a vocal sound into a machine command and proven integration of different systems is possible," says CEO Darryn Keiller.
Scott Willis for WAER: It goes without saying that agriculture is heavily dependent on the weather, and nature. So when Beak and Skiff partner Peter Fleckenstein heard of a way to eliminate some of that uncertainty, he jumped at the chance.
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.
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.
RotoGro's equity interest in Gibio's global growing facilities provides depth to the Company's second vertical of growing management and growing facility ownership
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.
