If you're a grower, you know how difficult it is to compete in this low margin, high risk business. It doesn't matter what you grow or how you grow it, all crop production is vulnerable.
A conversation with Steve Huntley of Enlightened Crops on how he discovered Freight Farms and leveraged previous business experience into his new venture of Container Farmng
In France's Bordeaux region, robots ensure that the wine is organically good. They autonomously eliminate grass and weeds between the vines, making pesticides unnecessary. To enable the robots to navigate the hilly terrain, the developers took some cues from Mars rovers.
Dealerships are benefiting from this shift with predictive purchase awareness and predictive service awareness, culled from knowledge of relative producer income and detailed insight of field operations.
The combination of the Internet of Things (IoT) and AI technologies, such as machine learning, computer vision, and predictive analytics, further allow farmers to analyse real-time data of weather conditions, temperature, soil moisture, and plant health.
Today, because of recent developments in soil and water monitoring, the critical information is being received in real-time measurements from the field, helping farmers make faster, more accurate crop production decisions.
Five-month growing trial on high-wire tomatoes conducted by Wageningen and Vortus demonstrates full-spectrum LEDs from Fluence by OSRAM are a viable solution to replace legacy HPS fixtures.
Technological advancements focused on sensors, Internet of Things (IoT), autonomous robots, and drones, when integrated with mechanized equipment, provide applications in various agricultural practices.
There is a good assortment of drones that no longer need ground stations or PCs to communicate. A farmer can now head out into the field with only a drone and tablet and be able to collect high-res imagery in minutes with simple, easy-to-use mobile apps.
It's amazing how much technology has become an everyday part of our family farm, which has grown to 2,100 acres. Instead of a notebook, we use digital tools like FieldView™ so we have all of our data right at our fingertips.
Slow and steady is winning the race as Farmwave's platform has taken almost 6 years to get to this release... but the AI output results and complex core in the background combined with an easy and almost social style UI/UX form of data collection is on point.
New York City alone has over 14,000 acres in prime rooftop real estate; it's no surprise rooftop farms are mushrooming all over the US. Chicago has 509 roofs which are now partially or fully covered with vegetation.
The simplest way that robotic technology can be used for cannabis farming is the trimming process. AI-powered robots are able to automate the trimming process, so that farmers are able to de-leaf buds quickly and effectively, saving countless hours of manual labor.
It starts with 30 330W solar panels that provide 9.9kW of power. These are controlled by three FlexMax 80s that are then fed into an Outback Radian 8048 *kW Inverter. Excess energy charges three SimpliPhi Power PHI 3.4 batteries that store a total of 10.2kWh at 201 amp hours
Agriculture drones are the unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) used in various agricultural applications, such as precision farming, livestock monitoring, smart greenhouse, precision fish farming, horticulture, and forestry.

Rollon's X-Rail linear rails are a reliable solution in environments susceptible to impurities. Equipped with rolling elements with shaped and flat raceways, they are available in several versions: galvanized, nitrided or stainless-steel sheet metal. The latter version ensures total corrosion resistance, which is critical for hostile environments such as those found in vertical farming. Particularly innovative is the T + U configuration of the X-Rail linear rails, which can compensate for the parallelism errors of mounting surfaces. This simplifies installation and reduces costs.
