The marriage of AI and agriculture is real and it is promising. Now, more than ever, it appears that the future of farming may well lie in artificial intelligence technologies.
When it comes to certified organic systems, pest monitoring and management is paramount to a successful operation. Unlike traditional farms that have access to a bevy of specialized pesticides that can typically be utilized as needed, organic farmers aren't so fortunate.
A number of vendors were displaying robotic solutions at Greentech this year. These solutions ranged from newly introduced mobile harvesting robots, to more traditional stationary robots used for processes like transplanting, grading, and sorting.
Healthy soil functions as a living organism and is incredibly complex. Details like soil pH, moisture content and mycorrhizae levels affect how plants grow. Many farmers use soil tests to help them understand what's going on underground and supplement their crops.
Akin to Industry 4.0, Agriculture 4.0 refers to the next big trends facing the industry, including a greater focus on tools for precision agriculture, as well as agricultural technology ('AgTech').
Wilbur-Ellis Partners with Guardian Agriculture in Multi-Million Dollar Agreement to Bring Autonomous Aerial Application to Growers Across America
The largest agricultural robotics investment commitment to date brings leading innovation in autonomous aircraft to the agriculture industry
The purpose of using heat specifically in the root zone of cuttings is to induce dormancy in the upper vegetative part and to encourage root growth at the base. The temperature difference between soil and air gives the plant a boost for root formation..
"The compact format, high performance and great resistance to wear and tear makes the rugged PCs from JLT very suitable to our needs," comments Steketee's R&D Director.
At its best, soil is an ecosystem filled with fungi, healthy bacteria and organic matter. Healthy soil protects plants from pests, reduces weed growth and sustains healthy crops year after year.
Climate risks can directly affect crop production by reducing agricultural yields for some crops, increasing production volatility, and destabilising farmer incomes. On the one hand, oversupply could result in farmers receiving lower profits.
Most farm equipment either uses diesel or fossil-fuel-derived electricity, so transitioning to biofuels as an alternate fuel source could have several environmental benefits.
Agricultural yields must improve, but farms can't expand the way they have for much of their history. The solution to this problem is data analytics.
The Decarbon8 Fund announced a new Request for Proposal (RFP) for companies advancing regenerative agriculture solutions that reduce greenhouse gas emissions and other environmental impacts.
In the future, cameras could spot blackbirds feeding on grapes in a vineyard and launch drones to drive off the avian irritants, then return to watch for the next invading flock. All without a human nearby.
HydroGreen's commercial scale Automated Vertical Pastures™ technology helps meet increasing demand for valuable farm-based inset and offset carbon credits from all manner of organizations with net-zero goals.
