Light has a complex relationship with plants. When the light touches a leaf, it can be absorbed by, reflected from, or transmitted through to other leaves. Plants appear green to us because they reflect and transmit slightly more green light than they do blue or red.
By using a computer vision-controlled system to map terrain and identify the size and location of rocks embedded in the soil, the heavy lifting is done by automated machinery which saves farmers a lot of time and money.
Solar simulators-indoor lights that reproduce the sun's spectrum-take many forms and serve different purposes, including testing sunscreens, solar cell efficiencies and performance testing of aerospace materials.
What is automation? How can automation help farmers do more with less? Is automation in agriculture a good idea? How is automation transforming the farming industry? Farmer's exploring technology tend to ask the same questions.
The industry will likely experience more connectivity as farmers use technology to share data and warn other professionals. Eventually, widespread adoption will fuel the creation of more ingenious floodwater protection devices, as well as various other beneficial inventions.
When precision is needed to improve the yield of a grow room, consider all the factors that must be controlled. Integrating sensors to monitor these attributes are key to improving the environmental conditions of a grower.
Farmers Edge solutions delivered an integrated software platform that helped the Tollefson Farm become more predictive on a number of fronts.
Seeing the potential of drones in reshaping agriculture, Japanese farmers now expect the first mass-produced, lightweight farm robot XAG R150 to reap a higher yield with quality fruits.
Whether in the field, in the barn, or in the greenhouse, robots and drones already handle a lot of tasks. Here's what they can do.
At the ETH Zurich, a robot has been developed to mechanically destroy the weeds growing between crops. "Rowesys" is conveniently started via remote control - and makes herbicides unnecessary.
Farmers are often left to protect their own land and are responsible for ensuring they take safety precautions to stop the spread of a wildfire caused by natural events. Fortunately, the USDA has assisted farmers that have experienced wildfire damage.
The future of agritech and the ag retailer/client relationship ultimately depends on learning from all the data available. The information gathered is vital for both farmers and their retailers.
By end use the market has been bifurcated into agricultural farms and livestock farms. Proper disinfection is required to protect crops and livestock from harmful diseases or sterilize the microorganisms.
Image processing with cameras and AI enables applications that were previously unthinkable. In agriculture, for example, it supports the optimal application of fertilizers, the visual monitoring of products and growth phases, and the processing of harvested crops.
It lives just beneath your feet, in every acre of every farm. And it's waiting for the right moment to strike. I'm talking about one of the more elusive, yet avoidable challenges farmers face this time of year: seedling disease.
