On the Roof of Ecuador, XAG Spearheads Drones for Sustainable Andean Farming

The demonstrations on potato fields have presented the high potential of fully autonomous drones in reducing labour cost and agricultural pesticide exposure.

Autonomous Pivot Systems Create New Opportunities for Smart Irrigation

Pivot irrigation is an efficient method of watering crops. The center pivot station houses a motor and a water pumping station. Water comes from a lake or a river source and runs through pipes under the ground to the pivot center.

Florida Orchard Deploys Autonomous Tractor for Precision Agriculture Research

A large citrus grove in central Florida recently incorporated FreeWave Technologies' industrial wireless M2M communications solutions in a study of autonomous tractors utilized for mowing operations.

Polarity & Nutrient Uptake

Water is a perfect example of a polar molecule. In fact, the polarity of water is what makes it such a good solvent. When salt is added to water it dissolves because the water molecules arrange themselves around the different ions and isolate them.

Supercharge Your Scouting: Connect to the Best in Field Imagery

Scouting technology has never been more advanced. But this added sophistication does not mean field health imagery tools are more complicated or unfriendly.

What to Look for in a Greenhouse Light Plan

When it comes to lighting a greenhouse or any indoor grow facility, the number of factors to consider can seem overwhelming. Should you choose intelligent LEDs? Should you go old-school with HPS?

Basics of Factory and Farm Automation

Even with generations of accumulated knowledge, farming continues to require innovation and informed decision making. Thanks to a plethora of scientific discoveries and inventions, farmers are now better at their jobs than ever before.

Freight Farms Case Study - Lotus House

In 2019, the Lotus House community expanded its resources and programming with the arrival of a Greenery container farm. The farm is the cornerstone of the nonprofit's educational programs for young residents, inspiring their curiosity about science, plants and nutrition.

Drone Powered by Solar Energy

Just like a satellite, SolarXOne is packed with technologies. Half airplane, half drone, this UAV weighs 25 kg, has a 4.50 m wingspan, and is innovative in several ways.

Advances in artificial intelligence (AI) and Internet of Things (IoT) for Precision Growing

I think it is fair to say that most farmers know that things need to change. The Agriculture industry is littered with legacy systems that are outdated and ineffective.

Vertical Farming and the Future of Automation in Agriculture

A new generation of farmers are rising to the sustainability challenge. This agricultural revolution presents the transition from traditional farming to futuristic high-tech artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics.

Pivotal Point: New Shaft Solves Corrosion Issue in Agriculture Equipment

GKF is a carbon alloy shaft that is an alternative to zinc and chrome plating corrosion inhibitors. GKF provides a hardened and corrosion-resistant running surface that will optimize the performance of the company's iglide bushings.

Recent innovations in turning Agricultural Waste into Biofuels

Wastes from fields and wastes from processing are the two kinds of agricultural wastes. Field wastes are present after harvesting crops and include stems, leaves, and stalks, and waste after processing crops includes seeds, peels, husks, etc.

Cosy Climate in the Greenhouse - Climate Sensors Ensure Optimum Growing Conditions

CO2, humidity and temperature sensors must provide accurate and reliable measurement results to the climate control system in the greenhouse. Inaccurate or even false readings impact on productivity and, in the worst case, can jeopardize the entire harvest.

7 Strategies to Improve Cannabis Lighting

While there are lighting fundamentals that apply no matter what type of facility growers are operating, there are certain strategies that indoor growers must use to be successful that are different than approaches greenhouse growers take.

Innovative SWIR camera for UAV based spectral remote sensing

Innovative SWIR camera for UAV based spectral remote sensing

Allied Vision's compact and light weight Alvium SWIR (short wave infrared) cameras are the ideal choice to build cost-effective OEM systems used in embedded and machine vision applications. The cameras support a spectral range from 400 nm to 1700 nm at high quantum efficiencies. This allows to capture images in both the visible and SWIR spectra with a single camera and enables users to reduce overall system costs! Equipped with Sony's IMX990 and IMX991 SenSWIR InGaAs sensors, Alvium SWIR cameras deliver high image quality and frame rates. This makes them well suited for drones or handheld devices used in various industries such as, agriculture, mining, solar cell inspection or medical.
