Pervasive Automation in Agriculture

Farming automation has proved to increase the return from the soil while strengthening the soil's fertility. This article is a brief overview regarding the up-to-date application of automation in agriculture.

How Farmers Are Using Technology to Secure Their Land and Equipment

The increased utilization of precision agriculture has resulted in more data breaches. Precision agriculture is a management system that relies on measuring and quantifying vast amounts of data to improve yields and decrease inputs.

Quality Equipment is Key in Harvesting Hemp for CBD Oil Production

There is a limited window of time for a grower to successfully harvest hemp for CBD oil production. They need to trust their equipment to function as designed, and the right belt will support their bottom-line goals.

Are Crop-Spraying Drones the Wave of the Future?

The primary function of agricultural drones in the current market is integration for pesticide management and irrigation systems. By collecting and analyzing data, drones can assist agricultural operations in more efficient pesticide use.

Using Minichromosomal Technology in Agriculture

Minichromosomal technology does not alter the plants genes in any way. Resulting in faster regulatory approval and a quicker acceptance by farmers.

Agriculture Manufacturing Trends to Watch

Like many other industries, agriculture has discovered the benefits of data mobility, industry 4.0, and new technologies that unlock productivity and cost savings.

Weather Forecasting for the Farmer

To produce a successful crop, a farmer needs to be aware of the moisture, light, and temperature. Detailed weather information, which includes past records, present weather and future forecasts are required.

Utilizing Tissue Culture to Produce High-quality Cannabis Clones

Growers must consider several factors when selecting a product configuration: their cultivation setup and environment, and their desired crop.

Will Closed Ecological Systems Save the Planet?

In a closed ecological system, the maintenance of life happens through complete re-use of available material by means of cycles. Exhaled carbon dioxide and other waste matter is renewed chemically or by photosynthesis into oxygen, water and food.

Photosynthetically Efficient Colors for Crop Growth and Biomass Accumulation

UbiGro helps growers boost crop yields by providing the best sunlight environment - more orange and red light for enhanced crop growth - without using electricity. UbiGro is a passive solar product.

Indoor Farming with Towers

We are providing a vertical growing platform that can be scaled and fills a need in the market for a growing platform that is flexible enough to cater to both home and hobby growing and large-scale commercial farming.

Vertical Farming Methods Compared to Traditional Vertical Farming?

True Vertical™️ optimizes the amount of plants per square foot by growing them literally vertically along a wall that can be 25 feet tall and 35 feet wide, or even bigger. This wall of canopy is facing another wall of canopy. Lighting is in between.

Genetic Engineering is a Driving Force for Modern Agriculture

Genetic engineering permits scientists to select only one definite gene to implant. This avoids introducing other genes with unwanted attributes. Genetic engineering also speeds up the development of new foods with wanted traits.

Universal Automation in Agriculture

IoT devices permit growers to assemble more data about the condition of their farms, and IoT is indicating great potential for improving provision delivery and propelling agriculture to utmost productivity.

Food Matters Summit - Q&A with SPREAD
