Rijk Zwaan and Blue Radix have undertaken a joint initiative for a unique production comparison with autonomous growing. Implementing artificial intelligence (AI) in Rijk Zwaan's seed production process has many advantages.
Below is more information about the revolutionary fruit harvesting technology that can streamline the picking process, allow farmers to overcome existing challenges and help solve ongoing labor shortages in the sector.
The LemnaTec system, called Scanalyzer3D, utilizes advanced cameras from Allied Vision to provide researchers with previously unavailable data on plant growth, root development, water absorption and drying, and photosynthesis.
Through this new technology, robots will run through strawberry greenhouses in the north of England, gathering video footage that gets analyzed by AI as the robot moves along.
AI is on the cusp of driving an agricultural revolution, and helping confront the challenge of feeding our growing global population in a sustainable way. But researchers warn that using new AI technologies at scale holds huge risks that are not being considered.
Modern agriculture technologies such as crop monitoring drones, farm management software and livestock measuring sensors are just some of the tools improving crop production in a world full of depleting resources.
BOWERY FARMING ACQUIRES TRAPTIC, 3D VISION AND ROBOTICS HARVESTING STARTUP, TO ACCELERATE THE COMMERCIALIZATION OF FRUITING AND VINE CROPS
Traptic's 3D vision, robotic arms and artificial intelligence (AI) combined with Bowery's world-class technology deployed in its farms will be used to harvest ripe strawberries.
Fast-growing distillery with unique spirits made from milk deploys Pleora's new Visual Inspection System to add AI-based decision-support for labelling and quality control
In five to 10 years we will see more aerial and ground robots operating alongside the farmers. And farmers will be able to proactively manage their farms using modern AI capabilities and generate better yields and profits-with optimum sustainability.
87% of US agriculture businesses are currently using AI technologies, up from 74% at this time last year, according to new research released today.
The appeal of farming isn't what it used to be, and fewer people are interested in taking up the profession. Thanks to technology and artificial intelligence, though, the industry can still keep up and yield more and healthier crops and livestock.
I think it is fair to say that most farmers know that things need to change. The Agriculture industry is littered with legacy systems that are outdated and ineffective.
Ground-breaking technology partnership will significantly improve plant yields and quality in AeroFarms' vertical farms through analytics, AI, drones and wireless networking.
The future of farming was on display at the recent "First China Agricultural Robot Innovation Competition" as teams from universities, scientific research institutes and technology companies showcased their innovations.
While applications like autonomous driving get most of the headlines around AI, this technology has become essential to the fabric of our digital lives.

Artificial intelligence can be used, for example, to classify fruit varieties or to identify damaged parts, e.g. apples with marks or color deviations. To cover all possible variances with classical image processing would be very time-consuming and costly. With artificial intelligence, however, these challenges can be solved in no time at all. IDS NXT ocean is a user-friendly all-one-one system which requires neither special knowledge in deep learning nor camera programming. Only sample images and knowledge on how to evaluate them (e.g. "good apples" / "bad apples") are needed. This makes the start into AI-based image processing particularly easy. Camera hardware, software, infrastructure and support come from a single company. For beginners, IDS offer the IDS NXT ocean Creative Kit, which includes all components and workflows to create, train and run a neural net.
