Sentera's swappable precision crop health sensors paired with the Inspire 2 offers agronomists, crop consultants, and growers an economical way to capture diverse vegetation indices such as normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI) or normalized difference red edge (NDRE) data while investing in a single drone platform.
Torstar News Service: Forty-foot containers, equipped with infrared lights and vertical hydroponics systems, can produce up to 150 pounds of kale a week.
Emily Monaco for Organic Authority: The National Organic Standards Board voted last Wednesday to reject proposals prohibiting hydroponic and aquaponic production methods from being certified USDA organic.
Typically growers want to see the seed date, variety, quantity, and maybe harvest date on a plant tag. This can all be done with barcodes.
Morgan Kelly, Princeton Environmental Institute: Princeton University's Vertical Farming Project began at a conference in 2016 when the topic turned to increasing the crop yield of hydroponic systems
Farming in a box is a system that uses shipping containers for the purpose of growing year-round agriculture in any environment. Farming in a box allows local food production through design and technology, facilitating anyone to grow food anyplace.
David Szondy for New Atlas: "Obviously the footprint needs to be small, so you have to go vertical. And you'll need to use artificial lighting. These are the problems we decided to solve for."
Nic Fildes for Financial Times: Farmers are placing sensors on various parts of cows' bodies - including the tail, neck, hooves and stomach - to help increase the productivity of their herds.
Fly Me to the Field: How Remote Sensing Helped a Grower Spot 26% Lower Crop Rates and Recoup Planting Costs
Drone-based stand establishment for clear-cut crop counting and assessing planting efficiency.
AeroFarms: Having raised in total over $100 million in corporate and project financing, AeroFarms will used the latest round of funds for continued investment in leading R&D and technology and additional farm expansion around the world.
Sales of drones are expected to rise from 2.5 million in 2016 to 7 million in 2020, a staggering 180% increase. This means newer and more varied versions of them are constantly hitting the market, making it difficult to keep up with the different types of models.
Want to know how to perform in-depth and accurate stand counts to pinpoint areas of potential yield loss and take corrective measures at key times during the growing season?
Marilyn Kalfus for the OC Register: The 300-acre sustainable community, named Miralon, is planned as one of the nation's largest agricultural neighborhoods, or "agri-hoods," where new homes crop up around community farms.
Brian Spaen for GreenMatters: They'll be farming in solar-powered greenhouses and vertical farms in densely-populated locations. This will bring in fresh crops to the community, adding to the great quality of life they're hoping to achieve through its other sectors.
New Smart Farm technologies can give America's growers the ability to monitor crop conditions in real time, respond to technical problems before machinery breaks down in the field and consult with the world's foremost agronomic experts with the push of a button.
