The World of Future Farming and Artificial Intelligence

The marriage of AI and agriculture is real and it is promising. Now, more than ever, it appears that the future of farming may well lie in artificial intelligence technologies.

New Air Source Heat Pumps provide energy efficient heating for garden centre whilst reducing CO2 emissions

Three new Air Source Heat Pumps (ASHPs) have been installed at the Perrywood Tiptree garden centre in Essex, providing a much more energy-efficient heating solution than the old oil-fired boiler system previously used.

How AI Driven Pest Monitoring Can Benefit Organic Farmers

When it comes to certified organic systems, pest monitoring and management is paramount to a successful operation. Unlike traditional farms that have access to a bevy of specialized pesticides that can typically be utilized as needed, organic farmers aren't so fortunate.

We Cannot Reduce Cost of Electricity, So We Learn How to Make Best Use of Energy

Part of this is to maximize the plant density per square meter, which means more and more plants can benefit from the same kilowatts sent to the LED lamps. We also use software to make better predictions on the amount that needs to be harvested so that there is zero waste.

The Potential for Using Smartphones for Soil Nutrient Testing

Healthy soil functions as a living organism and is incredibly complex. Details like soil pH, moisture content and mycorrhizae levels affect how plants grow. Many farmers use soil tests to help them understand what's going on underground and supplement their crops.

Why More Growers Are Choosing Polycarbonate Panels

Polycarbonate panels offer growers a superior cladding solution, delivering effective light transmission and diffusion, simplifying maintenance and improving their structure's heat retention. They also present a number of options to choose from.

21 Acres -- Extreme precipitation threatens food security and drives up local food costs

Over the past decade, small local farms have been adjusting to increasing heat by switching out tried-and-true seed varietals for more heat-hardy varieties. By contrast, spring of 2022 has been unusually cold and wet-Seattle is experiencing its coldest spring since 1955.

The AI Agricultural Revolution - A Fertile Ground for Growth

Akin to Industry 4.0, Agriculture 4.0 refers to the next big trends facing the industry, including a greater focus on tools for precision agriculture, as well as agricultural technology ('AgTech').

Wilbur-Ellis Partners with Guardian Agriculture in Multi-Million Dollar Agreement to Bring Autonomous Aerial Application to Growers Across America

The largest agricultural robotics investment commitment to date brings leading innovation in autonomous aircraft to the agriculture industry

Propagation of Cuttings Using Eh-powerground Electric Heating Mats

The purpose of using heat specifically in the root zone of cuttings is to induce dormancy in the upper vegetative part and to encourage root growth at the base. The temperature difference between soil and air gives the plant a boost for root formation..

Innovative Energy-Saving Solar Greenhouse Idea Wins Schneider Go Green Student Competition

-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

What Technology is Needed to Properly Develop and Maintain Soil Health

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.

Using AI, Robotics and Plant Science to Grow Better More Sustainable Produce

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.

How Can Smart Technology Benefit Vertical Farms?

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.

Leveraging Data Analytics for Higher Agricultural Yields

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.
