Using Agriculture Drones to Move From Analog to Digital Farming: A Case Study in Quantifying the Return on Investment
For us, the answer on when to go from "analog" to "digital" farming is today. In one growing season, we estimate that we will come out positive on our investment in implementing a "base-plus" variable rate nitrogen program.
Inspired by sunflowers and other phototropic plants that follow the sun across the horizon, the SmartFlower wakes up at sunrise, fans out its twelve solar "petals" to 194 square feet and automatically cleans itself in preparation for capturing the sun's rays.
The rapidly growing remote sensing industry provides consumers multiple options to choose from. The challenge is selecting a crop scouting solution thats complete - that considers the sensor, software, and data analytics tools that provide the best value for your needs.
The idea of growing plants year-round by controlling environmental factors dates back as far as the Roman Empire. Emperor Tiberius Caesar had moveable plant beds built that could grow cucumbers year-round by being brought inside during cold or unfavorable weather.
With Agrilyst, growers can understand which of their crops are the highest performers based on yield, growth rate, or both and run production scenarios with higher performers having more space allocation. These recommendations help growers optimize the space on their farm and drive significantly higher revenues.

Budget-friendly cameras can be considered an important growth driver for automation. IDS Imaging Development Systems has developed several camera families for this purpose, which are available with different resolutions, housings and lens mounts in order to optimize the development of machine vision projects. IDS' low-cost cameras of the uEye XLE, XCP and XLS series are, like all IDS cameras, characterized by "quality made in Germany", user-friendliness and long availability. The models are equipped with the basic functions for high-quality, industry-standard image evaluation and avoid unnecessary over-engineering. Furthermore, their small size makes them well-suited for embedded vision applications. One of the latest additions: a 20 MP onsemi sensor that makes it easy do discover tiny details.
