For the agriculture industry, the Internet of Things (IoT) is revolutionizing the ability to improve sustainability in every area, from the field to the data center.
RippleNami Powers Kenya's First Real-time Livestock Traceability Programme Enabling Trade and Food Safety
Kenya Veterinary Association partners with RippleNami to capture critical livestock data assets. Launching this programme addresses long standing challenges such as disease control and surveillance and traceability etc.
The use of real-time data is beginning in agricultural sectors with high-value highly perishable crops such as fresh vegetables, berries and other fresh fruit. There is more communication between the field and the processor in those sectors
What you want to grow indoors are high value and short shelf-life crops that you can stack or vertically rack to grow. For instance, in pods and warehouses, you grow plants by stacking multiple beds vertically or horizontally.
FoodLogiQ announced the creation of FoodLogiQ Labs, a research and development hub dedicated to the acceleration of new products and solutions to meet the growing needs of the food industry.
Soil Health Institute Announces Methods for Evaluating Soil Health Indicators at a Continental Scale
By project conclusion in 2020, SHI expects to have the data required for recommending scientifically-sound soil health indicators to help farmers, scientists, agricultural policy makers, and others answer the fundamental question: Just how healthy are our soils?
Many smallholder farmers also lack resources to use existing precision agriculture tools they desperately need to become profitable. Rockabye aims to make lucrative farming operations accessible and more affordable.
Q & A with IntelinAirs CEO, Al Eisaian. While the march of technology continues to accelerate, Im very excited about three things happening in the ag-tech industry in relation to aerial technology.
Advancements like nutrient monitoring and early disease detection are only possible using precise, repeatable measurements. To generate such measurements, a multispectral camera must be a "narrow band" camera.
The climate controlled farm will be powered by 100% renewable electricity and recycled irrigation water using proprietary methods that yield more than 30 times that of conventional farms, with higher levels of food safety and environmental sustainability.
Fortunately, our ability to provide useful precipitation forecasts beyond the next few hours is not highly dependent on our ability to measure what has actually happened.
A group grid of points (or virtual sensors) are created by an initial model estimate of the conditions at the surface (and above) and that virtual sensor is then nudged by the observations around it to the more accurate value.
Thermal imagery is a game of correlation: we use long-wave infrared radiation to give us insights on the temperature profile of the field, but we can also make correlations to other weather-sensitive metrics such as grain moisture and anaerobic zones.
Eco Convergence Group Launches World's First HyCubeâ„˘ Hydroponic Production System at Orlando World Center Marriott
Innovative technology and structure changes how produce will be sourced by hotels and restaurants.
The community of approximately 7,000 residents is located in the mountainous barrio of Bartolo, mostly populated by coffee farmers who migrated to the region in the 18th century.

Need to increase safety? Are you using light curtains? Is space a concern? Dynatect's Gortite® VF Automated Machine Safety Door combines safety technology, speed, and a physical barrier to isolate hazardous operations. Use of a physical barrier with safety sensors can save up to 30 square feet of manufacturing space. Using the ANSI minimum safety distance formula, the Gortite® VF Door limits the depth penetration factor and average approach speed, allowing closer location of the safeguarding device. Unlike light curtains, which can't contain process hazards, an automated machine safety door can isolate common workplace debris. This physical barrier is designed to contain process driven hazards such as weld sparks, UV flash, and light debris. Thus, the operator can maintain closer proximity to the work area improving ergonomics and productivity.
