With cash corn fetching a measly $2.85/bushel in our area early this winter, every percentage point of moisture that needs to be removed from the crop has a financial impact equivalent to a yield loss of about 1.75%.
Gordon Food Service, Pathways Foundation, Carole Ilitch, others have collectively given $2 million toward a $5 million effort to ensure a healthier future for kids in Detroit.
The IoT agricultural applications are making it possible for ranchers and farmers to collect meaningful data. Large landowners and small farmers must understand the potential of IoT market for agriculture by installing smart technologies to increase competitiveness
Shaped like a pane of glass, a luminescent solar concentrator is typically transparent, but contains a luminescent dye that absorbs light within a particular spectral range, then re-emits the light at a different wavelength.
While there has been significant growth in the agricultural sensors industry, there is still a lot more to be done. As of now, sensors contribute to just a part of the precision farming industry.
The tool making these water measurements possible is a tiny graphene sensor that can be taped to plants - researchers have dubbed it a "plant tattoo sensor."
Use of Renewable energy sources in agriculture production process not only will solve problems of energy and water scarcity but will ensure food security and enhance sustainable agriculture in Pakistan.
The Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (or NDVI) has been used for the past 40 years as the go-to method of assessing plant health. As you may know, healthy plants reflect light differently than unhealthy ones.
Hopefully, as confidence grows in our ability to forecast weather and soil conditions, much value will be extracted for more efficient operations, higher yields, and better environmental stewardship.

maxon launches the next generation of positioning controllers - the EPOS4. A high performance module with detachable pin headers and two different power ratings. With a connector board, the modules can be combined into a ready-to-install compact solution. Suitable for efficient and dynamic control of brushed and brushless DC motors with Hall sensors and encoders up to 750 W continuous power and 1500 W peak power. The modular concept also provides for a wide variety of expansion options with Ethernet-based interfaces, such as EtherCAT or absolute rotary encoders.
