While new technology is exciting, it can carry some unforeseen risks. Here are a few of the most significant issues that tech-forward farmers face.
In this blog post, we'll lay out typical preventative maintenance measures for skid steers and talk about how you can use self-lubricating plastic components to design machinery with less maintenance requirements.
Because agricultural tires play such a critical role in getting work done, it's necessary to stay up to date on the latest tire technology. Below are six promising advances in agriculture tire technology that optimize equipment performance.
GKF is a carbon alloy shaft that is an alternative to zinc and chrome plating corrosion inhibitors. GKF provides a hardened and corrosion-resistant running surface that will optimize the performance of the company's iglide bushings.
Restoring older farm equipment saves time and money. It allows the farmer to bring back a once-working piece of equipment for a few more seasons.
NORD DRIVESYSTEMS offers full-featured drive solutions that can tackle the toughest requirements in the poultry industry, including applications from processing to packaging.
In collaboration with Wageningen University & Research and Compassionate Cultivation, Fluence is proud to announce the findings of a series of groundbreaking photobiology research studies examining how light spectra affect cannabis growth and development.
As demand for virgin carbon black (vCB) outpaces supply, the strategic investment by Bridgestone provides an alternative that benefits not only the tire industry, but the planet as well.
Dealerships are benefiting from this shift with predictive purchase awareness and predictive service awareness, culled from knowledge of relative producer income and detailed insight of field operations.
Though a pump can fail due to age and use, the reality is that most are murdered, snatched from their prime with much life left in them. The culprit is cavitation and it sends warning signs but most are ignored.
ITC knew that metal enclosure options would not fit the companys needs because agricultural sprays and chemicals typically degrade metal boxes quickly. Therefore, a non-metallic option would be best, due to the materials ability to withstand corrosion in the field.
The Airframe is designed like a backpack and can be adjusted to almost any body size with an adjustable frame and straps. It supports the upper extremities of professionals and skilled trade workers who are exposed to repetitive arm motions and/or stationary arm elevation.
Jim Breen for Agriland: As a leading farm equipment company, we strive to anticipate technological change. Case IH already offers technologies that play a part in this exciting new era.
Gerald Piddock for NZ Farmer: Larger farming machinery will be replaced by more efficient systems relying on emerging technologies, agricultural robotics expert Simon Blackmore says.
Jack Zemlicka for Precision Farming Dealer: For the first time in the 13-year history of the study, recruiting and retaining technicians ranked atop the list of dealer concerns, with some 92% saying they are "concerned" about the availability of technicians.

The next evolution in Dorner's Edge Roller Technology conveyor platform, the ERT®150, is ideal for small and light-load assembly automation, as well as medical and medical-device assembly application. The ERT platform is the only pallet conveyor of its kind available with an ISO Standard Class 4 rating for cleanroom applications. Earning the ISO Standard 14644-1 Class 4 rating means Dorner's ERT150 will conform and not contribute to the contamination of cleanrooms to those standards. As implied by its name, the ERT150 (Edge Roller Technology) uses rollers to move pallets through the conveyor smoothly with no friction (a byproduct often seen in belt-driven platforms). The conveyor's open design eliminates concerns of small parts or screws dropping into rollers and causing conveyor damage or jamming. The ERT150 is suited to operate in cleanroom environments requiring a pallet handling conveyor. It is capable of zoning for no or low-back pressure accumulation and is ideal for automation assembly applications within industries including medical devices, electronics, consumer goods among others.
