As some states start lifting COVID-19 stay-at-home restrictions, the agriculture industry continues to struggle under a largely shut-down America. The industry is experiencing losses in the billions between the dairy, meat, and produce sectors.
With the number of bee colonies drastically declining around the world, SAS is using technology such as the Internet of Things (IoT), machine learning and visual analytics to help maintain and support healthy bee populations.
As indoor farming gained popularity, artificial lights got better at replicating the sun. Now, we have plenty of choices for growing plants without any sunlight indoors. These fixtures are referred to as grow lights.
In spring, farmers' stores of winter veg will be running low and the new season's crops are not yet ready to be harvested. This period is called the "hungry gap". During the hungry gap, Britain relies even more heavily on imports to feed itself.
The delicacy of our food supply networks has been exposed, and now is the time to reflect on how our systems could change for the better, as well as our behaviour as consumers - demonstrated by those who have pledged to support local businesses more during this time.
This global pandemic has not only highlighted health implications of today's highly connected world, but has also identified issues with supply chain and product lines. It has shown how society behaves in times of crises - both the good, and the not-so-good.
The use of agricultural robots has significantly increased during this pandemic state, especially to boost the production of food grains, meet the cumulative demands of people for food, and fight against the dangerous COVID-19 disease.
Farming automation has proved to increase the return from the soil while strengthening the soil's fertility. This article is a brief overview regarding the up-to-date application of automation in agriculture.
The 2nd Edition of the Autonomous Greenhouse Challenge is underway, drawing 21 teams and over 200 participants in its initial round. Run by Wageningen University & Research and sponsored by Heliospectra the challenge includes multidisciplinary teams from around the globe.
The current trend of automation has witnessed the development of new technologies that are capable of providing end-to-end automation for the production of certain processed foods.
As the pandemic exacerbates the issues in our global food system, we wanted to understand why the system is failing, and how we can build a more resilient one in the future.
The increased utilization of precision agriculture has resulted in more data breaches. Precision agriculture is a management system that relies on measuring and quantifying vast amounts of data to improve yields and decrease inputs.
About 12% of the Earth's land is used for growing crops. As the world's population grows, greater demands are placed on agriculture than ever before, and growers are depending on satellite data to increase their crops.
It's been thought that hydroponic and aquaponic systems could reduce these issues since there is little opportunity for pathogens like E. coli to contaminate the edible parts of plants.
While there are many different techniques with indoor farming, including hydroponics, aeroponics, and aquaponics, all of them have one thing in common - the lack of soil. Instead of using the concept of growing in soil, crops are instead grown in peat moss or coconut husks.
