Implementing Erosion Control Strategies on Modern Job Sites: 5 Critical Considerations

The world loses 24 billion tons of fertile land every year, for which erosion is responsible for a considerable portion. Farmers and other professionals that disrupt the landscape, like construction teams, must do what they can to stop this trend.

Perdue Farms Expands Pasture-Raised Chicken Program, Unique Raising Practice Yields Increased Nutrient Density and Regenerative Environmental Benefits

From an environmental perspective, moving the chickens to fresh pasture every day returns important benefits to the land including increasing soil organic matter, sequestering atmospheric carbon into the soil, and improving the soil's water-holding capacity.

Does Biochar Have a Future in Agriculture?

Although there are some excellent ideas to sequester carbon, one method may prove more effective than others. It's time to take a closer look at biochar and its potential future in agriculture.

EarthOptics Raises $10.3 million in Series A Funding, Led by Leaps by Bayer, to Accelerate Carbon Mapping

Investment to help accelerate roll-out of soil mapping and machine learning technologies for most accurate soil carbon content and compaction readings

The Use of Biostimulants for Enhancing Soil Nutrient Content

Biostimulants are substances or micro-organisms, which, when applied to seeds, plants, rhizosphere in specific formulations, are capable of making changes in physiological processes in plants and benefit the plants by boosting growth and increasing nutrient content.

The 13.5% Barometer

A useful tool in evaluating last year's nitrogen application is to look at your hard-red spring (HRS) wheat protein. The protein level can be used as a barometer to evaluate your past year's application.

IDS NXT ocean: grab, label, train, run AI

IDS NXT ocean: grab, label, train, run AI

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.
