-Team GreenOverMorrow from Morocco wins with a smart energy management solution to set the energy transition of agriculture in motion -The winners receive a 10,000-euro cash prize
At its best, soil is an ecosystem filled with fungi, healthy bacteria and organic matter. Healthy soil protects plants from pests, reduces weed growth and sustains healthy crops year after year.
With the support of computer vision that captures 3D images of each and every grow module and data science, we are understanding how our production systems are interacting with our crops and how we can improve those interactions.
Smart technology can benefit many industries and application areas. IoT (specifically sensors), smart systems used to control and monitor conditions, drones, and predictive analytics are all hugely beneficial, particularly for the vertical farming sector.
Agricultural yields must improve, but farms can't expand the way they have for much of their history. The solution to this problem is data analytics.
The Decarbon8 Fund announced a new Request for Proposal (RFP) for companies advancing regenerative agriculture solutions that reduce greenhouse gas emissions and other environmental impacts.
By using extensive sensor networks for monitoring crops and growing systems, vertical farms can optimize their workflow by helping operators efficiently pinpoint problems. This would serve to reduce labor complexities and thus manpower required.
In the future, cameras could spot blackbirds feeding on grapes in a vineyard and launch drones to drive off the avian irritants, then return to watch for the next invading flock. All without a human nearby.
Utilizing precision ag would significantly reduce the agriculture industry's environmental impact, which currently accounts for around a quarter of global greenhouse gas emissions.
With the Power of Autonomous Iron, Caterpillar Pulls Off the Ultimate Trick Shot in Cat Trial 12: No Hands
On a field in the middle of the Arizona desert, a soccer legend and autonomous Cat® machines use proven technology to conquer challenging obstacle courses and score a major goal in the name of safety and efficiency.
Today, farmers are looking to the sky not for rain to come but for their drones to seed the crops or spray the soil. Technology in agriculture is on its way. Over the next few years, it will create huge demand for new technological skills among farmers.
While new technology is exciting, it can carry some unforeseen risks. Here are a few of the most significant issues that tech-forward farmers face.
If you're wondering what the differences are between Aeroponics vs. Hydroponics, you're probably not alone. These often misunderstood agricultural practices are set up to be the future of farming, but most people don't know much about them.
In this study, the influence of spectral conversion under UbiGro quantum dot (QD) luminescent greenhouse films on plant growth and fruit yield of strawberries grown during winter was investigated.
Recently, much media coverage has exposed the existence of so-called "forever chemicals," known as PFAS, or Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances. Over the years, PFAS have become widespread in the environment - including water supplies around the world.

"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.
