Jim Breen for Agriland: As a leading farm equipment company, we strive to anticipate technological change. Case IH already offers technologies that play a part in this exciting new era.
Pranbihanga Borpuzari for ET Online: A robotic arm uses these coordinates to pick the cotton and the arm, then uses a vacuum for precision picking of cotton and avoids picking any other contaminant.
Gabe Blanchet, Co-Founder, CEO of Grove via The Spoon: While todays indoor farming owes a whole lot to the cannabis, NASA and greenhouse research, my focus in this piece is on the formative impact pot growers had on this industry.
Funding Enables Rapidly Growing Farmer Network to Accelerate the Independent Digital Farm Economy
Shelby Rogers for Interesting Engineering: Plantagon could help solve food shortages around the world and save 1,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions from traditional farming methods.
Matt Simon for Wired: The company is developing machine learning algorithms that will automatically detect diseased plants and kick them out of the system before the sickness spreads. Underdeveloped plants would also get the boot.
Jody Helmer for Civil Eats: Vertical farms allow food banks to grow their own produce with high-tech systems in an effort to fight food insecurity year-round.
Anne Trafton for MIT News Office: MIT engineers have created sensors that can be printed onto plant leaves and reveal when the plants are experiencing a water shortage
Diana Gitig for Ars Technica: "We find that the current distribution of crops around the world neither attains maximum production nor minimum water use."
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.
Marilyn Kalfus for the OC Register: The 300-acre sustainable community, named Miralon, is planned as one of the nations largest agricultural neighborhoods, or "agri-hoods," where new homes crop up around community farms.
Brian Spaen for GreenMatters: Theyll 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 theyre hoping to achieve through its other sectors.
Melissa Yeo for Stockhead: Roots sells an underground heating and cooling system for crops that increases yields and allows crops to be grown out of season.
Gerald Piddock for NZ Farmer: Larger farming machinery will be replaced by more efficient systems relying on emerging technologies, agricultural robotics expert Simon Blackmore says.
Jorn Madslien for BBC: The app, called Plantix, was developed thousands of miles away in Berlin, Germany, by a group of graduate students and scientists who came together to help farmers combat disease, pest damage and nutrient deficiency in their crops.

There are a lot of factors to consider when designing a bearing pivot, including lifetime, machine purpose, loading capabilities, and environment. However, the most crucial element is knowing how corrosion, the number one cause of pivot failure, affects the housing, shaft and bushing. Read this blog post to learn how you can achieve a successful, maintenance-free pivot design.
