Finistere Ventures and PitchBook Close Gap in Agtech Funding Data

"2018 Early-Stage Agtech Report," provides new insight into global early stage financing activity and trends in leading agtech innovation geographies.

The Value of Remote Sensing Data in Agriculture (Part I)

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.

Innovative technology and structure changes how produce will be sourced by hotels and restaurants.

3 Trends that Defined Agriculture in 2017 and 3 to Watch

Last year recorded groundbreaking technological advances in agriculture, even as the ag giants focused on consolidation. In looking back over the trends that shaped 2017, we can locate the signs pointing to the big stories we anticipate this year.

Farming Is a Tough Business, but New Trends Offer Opportunity

As the challenges to the agricultural industry continue to evolve, we must pay attention to the impact on farmers. We must support those who feed us by finding new ways to empower farmers, both professionally and personally.

3 Aspects of Modern Farming That Need Data to Thrive

We must continue to improve the output and efficiency of our agriculture in the U.S. and across the globe. Utilizing data to generate timely recommendations for planting, irrigation, fertilization, spraying and harvest will allow us to provide citizens of the world with both higher quality and a greater quantity of crops to enjoy while also protecting the land

Drones in Agriculture: Undeniable Value and Plenty of Growth, But Not the Explosion Others Predict

ABI Research gives comparatively conservative estimates at the valuation of the drone-ag market for many reasons, including an increasingly consolidated market, and the actual needs of the farming industry

Automating Agriculture: How Automation and Robotics Have Taken to the Fields

The technological advances in agriculture are not just to do with social media savvy cows - the global agricultural robots market was estimated to account for a market revenue of $2,927 million in 2016, but is expected to rocket to $11,050 million in 2023.

Agricultural robots and drones to become a $45Bn industry by 2038

Robotic technology is quietly transforming the world of agriculture. In this article, we describe how this market will plausibly grow to become a $45Bn industry by 2038. We will also demonstrate how diverse this emerging industry is in terms of forms, functions and fortunes.

Startup Stories: Remote Controlled Farming

Our small size has forced us to implement a wide range of innovative technical solutions in the sector, that allows us to offer services of similar quality to those of a big company with just a fraction of its infrastructure.

Weather Forecasting: How Does It Work, And How Reliable Is It?

Hopefully, as confidence grows in our ability to forecast weather and soil conditions, much value will be extracted for more efficient operations, higher yields, and better environmental stewardship.

Is Ag Tech Adoption an Issue?

Let's not forget that farmers themselves are very innovative and willing to try new things - still, they proceed with caution. So, technology adoption will most likely continue to be a pain point in agriculture, but having awareness of these principles may help developers smooth the path moving forward.

A Brief History of Modern Farming

The idea of growing plants year-round by controlling environmental factors dates back as far as the Roman Empire. Emperor Tiberius Caesar had moveable plant beds built that could grow cucumbers year-round by being brought inside during cold or unfavorable weather.

Emerging Agricultural Technologies

Today, there are approximately 1 billion people who are underfed; and with an expected 9 billion people inhabiting the earth by 2050, we must use all of the technology that farmers have at their disposal. Technology is giving some promising solutions to this problem.

What's Slowing the Use of Robots in the AG Industry?

Precision agriculture isn't just rhetoric; it's real-time intelligence flowing into analytics software that transforms that flow into meaningful, practical information that farm managers can react to quickly. That data -- and that process -- have costs and, for the last few years, farmers have been stretched because commodity prices are down.
