As far as drones have evolved over the years, many consumer models still feature a max flight time of around 20 minutes. Some offer as little as five minutes. This fallback can be annoying to those wanting to fly longer than a third of an hour
The first project partners with industry to use robotics to aid farmers with mobility impairments. The Partnership for Innovation grant is a collaborative effort between Virginia Techs College of Engineering and the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences,
When viewing the Texas and Oklahoma Panhandles and southwest Kansas in Google Earth, you can see areas of green interspersed with predominantly brown tones. Zooming into any of these areas, you quickly discover that the majority of these green pixels are irrigated fields
Farm2Kitchen has developed a network of more than 100,000 small farmers across India. They provided these farmers training, mentoring and direct access to the market, thus providing them better value for their produce and improving their bottom line.
Sentera's latest offering will help ag professionals collect more uniform normalized difference vegetative index (NDVI) or normalized difference red edge (NDRE) data across a wider range of operating and environmental conditions.
They unveiled plans to use artificial intelligence to improve the efficiency and reduce the costs of hydroponic farming as well as to optimise the nutritional value of the crops.
To build a robust deep learning model, it can be much more than training or fine tuning some existing models (e.g. inception v3, resnet, LSTM, etc.) with your own dataset. These winning models are your best friend and can usually serve as base models.
BT: The micro-irrigation system, which is being trialled on a farm in Tamil Nadu, southern India, has cut water use by up to 80% and doubled the yields of some crops, the scientists from Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh said.
The new relationship between Trimble and SVGs THRIVE platform signifies the continued commitment to advancing a safer and more sustainable agriculture supply chain and to providing innovative solutions to farmers and their production partners worldwide.
Growers know their crop and the pitfalls that diminish yield quality and quantity. Walking the field garners valuable information, but not all problems are visible to the naked eye, especially during early stages of a pest infestation, disease onset, or nutrient deficiency.
In this study, calibrated NDVI values showed a strong correlation with the level of disease visually scouted by researchers in the field. In fact, the NDVI map was able to successfully indicate differences in barley yield between the treatments.
Arian Aghajanzadeh for GreenBiz: A 2015 report by McKinsey & Company stated that agriculture and hunting remain the least-digitized industries in the United States. However, farmers long have sought cost-effective tools to increase the efficiency of their fields.
Almost any plant can be successfully grown indoors. Youll need to do a little research to learn what crops will fit into your space and lighting availability. Herb gardens will grow in small spaces and in low light conditions.
Louise Richardson writing on behalf of Lycetts: Fly-tipping is a large problem for many across the UK - not only for private residents, but also for corporations. We know that the problem exists, but few people know what to do about it when it happens to them.
Cargill brings facial recognition capability to farmers through strategic equity investment in Cainthus
Cargill and Cainthus intend to first focus on the global dairy segment, but will expand to other species, including swine, poultry and aqua over the next several months.
