This is How the COVID-19 Pandemic is Impacting the Agriculture Industry

As some states start lifting COVID-19 stay-at-home restrictions, the agriculture industry continues to struggle under a largely shut-down America. The industry is experiencing losses in the billions between the dairy, meat, and produce sectors.

SAS Boosts Healthy Bee Populations Through Advanced Analytics and Machine Learning

With the number of bee colonies drastically declining around the world, SAS is using technology such as the Internet of Things (IoT), machine learning and visual analytics to help maintain and support healthy bee populations.

7 Steps for Picking the Best Grow Light

As indoor farming gained popularity, artificial lights got better at replicating the sun. Now, we have plenty of choices for growing plants without any sunlight indoors. These fixtures are referred to as grow lights.

The Hungry Gap, Seasonality and Controlled Environment Agriculture

In spring, farmers' stores of winter veg will be running low and the new season's crops are not yet ready to be harvested. This period is called the "hungry gap". During the hungry gap, Britain relies even more heavily on imports to feed itself.

Strengthening the Chain: a Push Towards Local Food Security

The delicacy of our food supply networks has been exposed, and now is the time to reflect on how our systems could change for the better, as well as our behaviour as consumers - demonstrated by those who have pledged to support local businesses more during this time.

Food Security in Today's World

This global pandemic has not only highlighted health implications of today's highly connected world, but has also identified issues with supply chain and product lines. It has shown how society behaves in times of crises - both the good, and the not-so-good.

Agriculture Robots Helping Their Way Out in Combatting the Covid-19 Pandemic

The use of agricultural robots has significantly increased during this pandemic state, especially to boost the production of food grains, meet the cumulative demands of people for food, and fight against the dangerous COVID-19 disease.

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.

Exploring Ways to Feed the Future in the Autonomous Greenhouse Challenge

The 2nd Edition of the Autonomous Greenhouse Challenge is underway, drawing 21 teams and over 200 participants in its initial round. Run by Wageningen University & Research and sponsored by Heliospectra the challenge includes multidisciplinary teams from around the globe.

Covid-19 Impact on Food Automation and Robotics Market

The current trend of automation has witnessed the development of new technologies that are capable of providing end-to-end automation for the production of certain processed foods.

Building a Resilient Fresh Food Supply Chain in the Age of Coronavirus

As the pandemic exacerbates the issues in our global food system, we wanted to understand why the system is failing, and how we can build a more resilient one in the future.

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.

Risk of E. Coli in Hydroponic and Aquaponic Systems May Be Greater Than Once Thought

It's been thought that hydroponic and aquaponic systems could reduce these issues since there is little opportunity for pathogens like E. coli to contaminate the edible parts of plants.

How Science Helps an Indoor Farm

While there are many different techniques with indoor farming, including hydroponics, aeroponics, and aquaponics, all of them have one thing in common - the lack of soil. Instead of using the concept of growing in soil, crops are instead grown in peat moss or coconut husks.

Dynatect Automated Machine Safety Roll-Up Doors

Dynatect Automated Machine Safety Roll-Up Doors

Need to increase safety? Are you using light curtains? Is space a concern? Dynatect's Gortite® VF Automated Machine Safety Door combines safety technology, speed, and a physical barrier to isolate hazardous operations. Use of a physical barrier with safety sensors can save up to 30 square feet of manufacturing space. Using the ANSI minimum safety distance formula, the Gortite® VF Door limits the depth penetration factor and average approach speed, allowing closer location of the safeguarding device. Unlike light curtains, which can't contain process hazards, an automated machine safety door can isolate common workplace debris. This physical barrier is designed to contain process driven hazards such as weld sparks, UV flash, and light debris. Thus, the operator can maintain closer proximity to the work area improving ergonomics and productivity.
