Here, Dave Walsha, sales manager of DC motor supplier EMS, explores three themes key to ensuring the sector's future.
AI has emerged as a powerful ally, empowering commercial farmers with unprecedented capabilities and insights. From optimizing crop yields and reducing resource wastage to enhancing decision-making processes, AI is transforming the agriculture industry from the ground up.
Expanded API Now Available for the Trimble Agriculture Cloud, Creating an Open Environment Benefiting Farmers and Their Partners
The availability of this API represents the next evolution of connectivity for agriculture integrators by coupling in-field devices and operational workflows for enabling compatibility with both Trimble and third-party agriculture applications.
Getting a reliable structure with the right growing equipment is a good start, but to truly optimize their greenhouse, commercial growers need to incorporate automation.
AgLaunch Seeks Transformational AgTech Startup Applicants for Farmer-Focused AgLaunch365 Accelerator Program
The accelerator offers three key benefits to participants: farm-centric programming with facilitators who have deep ag expertise; farm trials executed and tracked by a team with agronomic, livestock, and data management expertise; and farmer engagement throughout the process.
The early investigation of capital investment, operational cost, potential rebates, maintenance costs, potential yields, and product quality should all be topics of discussion before determining a direction forward.
The improvement in farmers' perspective on current conditions spilled over into a modest rise in July's Farm Capital Investment Index, up 3 points to a reading of 45.
The Almeria giant: A pioneering high-tech project developed by Novagric is breaking records in the area. The main goal is to improve both the production and quality of Palermo peppers and cucumbers in a controlled environment to achieve higher yields throughout the year.
The device reduces fertilizer loss, helps farmers cover more acreage in less time and offers greater durability due to components that resist corrosion in the harsh agricultural environment.
Zirkle Fruit Company leverages Fieldin to gain more visibility over critical irrigation monitoring activities
In addition to real-time monitoring, Clay leverages activity summary reports to evaluate and compare efficiencies across their operations. He digs into things like how far machines are traveling between blocks, how long machines are idling.
Harvest CROO has developed technology that can pick ripe strawberries without damaging the delicate fruit. A primary Harvest CROO goal is to help reduce U.S. obesity by keeping the supply of "super foods" like strawberries readily available and reasonably priced.
Several companies have proven they can successfully grow various crops indoors with exceptional yields, but few of them are operating with a positive cash flow without continued investments.
The prospects for 2023 are likely to call for the adoption of a strategy shift by indoor growers, one which will involve minimising costs by scaling down their business models to focus more on profitability.
Industrial agriculture enables higher efficiency levels and product volumes, feeding more people and earning businesses higher profits.
Whether it's outfitting a brand new structure or upgrading an existing one, cooling a greenhouse efficiently requires the right mixture of airflow, cooling power and shading.

"Smart farming" is an important part of the answer to this existential question: Extremely high efficiency in food production through the targeted use of the latest technology, computer-supported and - where possible - fully automatic. Seeds are individually and precisely placed; fruits carefully picked by mechanical grippers; fertilizers and plant protection products applied in small doses and in a targeted manner. These operations require a large number of small electric motors that are both robust and powerful.
