Farmers can now obtain a whole-field plant count from a single drone flight
It's not a stretch to imagine solo and small farm owners keeping up with the major organizations in the business thanks to improved efficiency, maximized output and faster harvest and care times.
Available in both liquid and granular forms, Hydretains' revolutionary chemistry converts soil moisture back into a liquid form, efficiently transferring it to plant roots.
Open AgTech Announces New API Standard Enabling Growers to Use Technology to Its Fullest Within Greenhouses and Vertical Farms
Technologists come together to form new standard for connecting hardware and software for the indoor agriculture industry.
Of all the new technologies appearing on the farm, "remote sensing" systems (devices that measure conditions from a distance, commonly an aircraft or satellite) are unique in their ability to deliver information on the existing conditions in the field.
Field health images can be compared with other important data layers, such as yield, to give farmers a deeper understanding of crop performance that they can use as they plan for the next season.
This method could render crops more resilient against disease, helping mitigate crop wastage throughout the world. Since the system can be implemented by re-wiring plants' natural defence mechanisms, no external genetic circuitry needs to be added.
The intensive plant nursery, located in North Lincolnshire, England, will be the largest indoor farm in Europe, producing up to 420 tonnes of leafy greens per year across a growing area of 5120m2, arranged in racks rising to the height of 11m.
"We think this is the best use-case of AI (Artificial Intelligence) today. We've basically turned a vocal sound into a machine command and proven integration of different systems is possible," says CEO Darryn Keiller.
Osram's smart horticulture lighting system prototype used in NASA ground research to help provide space crews with a reliable source of fresh food.
Scott Willis for WAER: It goes without saying that agriculture is heavily dependent on the weather, and nature. So when Beak and Skiff partner Peter Fleckenstein heard of a way to eliminate some of that uncertainty, he jumped at the chance.
When extreme weather strikes, lives and livelihoods are ruined, and farms are altered. Scientists are utilizing the most modern supercomputers to generate higher resolutions with greatly enhanced forecasting skill to help farmers beat extreme weather.
As we move from spring to summer, an interesting question arises: should those hoping for big corn yields this fall be cheering for a cooler- or warmer-than-normal summer?
Buckeye Relief has deployed Fluence horticulture lighting in an indoor cannabis facility. The Ohio based cultivator is preparing to rapidly address the need for medical-grade cannabis with an innovative vertical farming strategy.
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.
