A Guide To Horticultural Lighting

Artificial lighting is essential for growing plants indoors. This guide will walk you through the basics of understanding commercial horticultural lighting and things to take into consideration when shopping for fixtures.

How Urban Agriculture Improves Produce Shelf Life

If you've ever had a home garden, you've probably noticed that the fruits and vegetables you grow seem to last a lot longer than the ones you buy at the grocery store. Likewise, produce from farmers' markets tends to last a lot longer. What causes this discrepancy?

How to increase your efficiency with Machine Vision

Today's agriculture is facing an increasing number of challenges - high production and labor cost despite the lack of skilled workers is only one out of many. To face these challenges, machine vision has become an integral part of many applications used in agriculture.

IGS to deliver vertical farming solution supporting first solar-powered commercial scale farm in Perth, Australia

The four-tower industrial scale farm will be the centrepiece of the site. It will generate 120 tonnes of produce per annum when it is fully operational next year - including lettuce, spinach, kale and basil, as well as the indigenous crops.

Russian Farm Explores Use of XAG Agricultural Drones to Boost Rice Yield

In the South of Russia, XAG's agricultural drone has been introduced to the full cycle of rice cultivation. It brings new hope to farmers as the use of drone demonstrates the potential to reduce the cost of rice production.

The Next Generation of Agricultural Robots

We are moving to a world where robots need to make intelligent decisions about what to do based on what they see. Hence the need for machine learning, vision and AI.

Fluence Announces Strawberry Research Results, Revealing Higher Yields and Better Plant Quality Under Broad-Spectrum Lighting Strategies

Overall, during the winter flush, spectra that included a fraction of far-red saw increased performance across all categories. However, the white spectrum with a fraction of far-red recorded the best performance across categories.

Robot Solution for Automating the Lettuce Harvest

The lettuce's outer, or 'wrapper', leaves will be mechanically removed to expose the stem. Machine vision and artificial intelligence are then used to identify a precise cut point on the stem to neatly separate the head of lettuce.

New IDTechEx Report Outlines the Future of the Agricultural Robotics Industry

It analyses recent challenges in the agriculture industry and how robotics and technology developments will change the business of agriculture, enabling ultra-precision farming, helping to mitigate the challenges, and maintaining sustainable developments.

Black Gold is Worth the Wait: A Soil Health Mindset

Cover crops. No-till. Biological diversity. Microbial health. You've heard it all before. The techniques and principles of good soil health practices are well known but not widely adopted. Why?

TIME TO SHED NEW LIGHT ON THE ISSUE OF UK FOOD SECURITY?

Increasing the rate of photosynthesis in field crops and enabling year around production of green vegetables are among the goals to be discussed at the Agri-TechE event "Let there be Light" hosted by the University of Essex Plant Innovation Centre.

Autonomous and Emerging Technology in Farming
