Melissa Yeo for Stockhead: Roots sells an underground heating and cooling system for crops that increases yields and allows crops to be grown out of season.
Gerald Piddock for NZ Farmer: Larger farming machinery will be replaced by more efficient systems relying on emerging technologies, agricultural robotics expert Simon Blackmore says.
Jorn Madslien for BBC: The app, called Plantix, was developed thousands of miles away in Berlin, Germany, by a group of graduate students and scientists who came together to help farmers combat disease, pest damage and nutrient deficiency in their crops.
Drones don't just take pictures, they capture a wealth of data about your crops' health. But how do you know which data is best to use?
Mike Wilson for Farm Futures: When IBM and Silicon Valley invest in ag, you know it's not your daddy's farm anymore.
With all the planning, planting, spraying and marketing that goes into a growing season, it's not uncommon for something to be overlooked come harvest time.
If 29-year-old me were here in the present day looking at what's going on in agriculture, I can't help but wonder what would be going through my mind-"Do I believe what I am seeing?" or "Am I inside a Sci-Fi movie?"
Lauren Scrudato for Laboratory Equipment: They completed the task with basic, commercially-available agriculture machines and open-source software typically used to guide hobbyists' drones.
In Singapore, a country with a population of more than 5.5 million on the main island that is just 26 miles wide and 14 miles long, there is a four-story rotating greenhouse, it produces 1 ton of greens every day. Normally, Singapore imports 93% of its produce.
Today, companies like Farmers Edge are installing weather stations in their customer's fields to acquire accurate, site-specific data. And having a dense network of weather stations enables detailed analyses of regional trends.
While crop producers lay out their best plans for success early in the season before planting begins, inevitably some combination of crop pests, unpredictable weather, and even the neighbor's livestock or wildlife in the area can wreak havoc on those plans -- resulting in an accumulation of setbacks at harvest.
Drones can be used in many different ways, but not all of them lead to a high ROI. Here's the story of Caribe Drones, a company which discovered the full potential of drones by using Agremo to help farmers gain more insights into their plants and crops.
Christine McGuigan for Silicon Prairie News: Plastomics' chloroplast engineering is a platform that can efficiently introduce multiple traits into the chloroplast and enable simple, more predictable breeding of traits.
Futurism: The farm will feature a year-round greenhouse that can grow food for researchers at the Neumayer III polar station on the Ekstrom Ice Shelf.
Pam Smith for The Progressive Farmer: Drones buzzed overhead a tractor and spray boom projected images to simulate how spray nozzles can use new technology to spray only where weeds had escaped previous controls.

Dynatect's Gortite VF (Vertical Fabric) Automated Machine Safety Door is intended for automation and safe machine access to minimize cycle time and maximize production time. The automated roll-up door separates machines with hazardous operations from other processes, material handling equipment, and people. The Gortite VF Door contains typical machine/process generated hazards including light debris, fluid splatter/mist, and weld smoke/sparks/flash.
