Vision and Viability in Agtech

While there may not be as many people trying to 'build their own' as in 2017, the heavy investment in AgTech is sparking a round of products and inventions that will never be viable because they lack a vision and connection to the farmer from day one.

Precision Indoor Plants (PIP) Consortium to Revolutionize Agriculture

First-of-its-Kind Consortium Develops Crops Intended for Indoor Agriculture

Back to Basics Soil Fertility Part 1

I see a lot of information being thrown your way - some factual, some based on speculation, and some science fiction. What I hope to be able to do is give you some background information so that you can reasonably detect which pile to file the information in.

A Crop Farmers Can Count on

New mobile forage units from BioGen AG grow fresh, organic feed every day, in any season or weather.

Precision Irrigation Scheduling: Can We Cross The Chasm? (Part 3)

As the grower, trusted advisor, and the technologist move to a suite of precision technologies from the early adopter stage to the mainstream majority, we can get the next wave of innovation in the hands of the early adopters and the chasm will be crossed sooner than later.

The 2019 AUSVI XPONENTIAL Trade Show

AUSVI XPONENTIAL brings together the entire unmanned systems community to share ideas and learn about the emerging trends of unmanned technology.

Field Research: How To Get The Most From Split-Planting Trials

Split planting, which is planting two different hybrids side-by-side in the same planter pass, can be an effective way to generate powerful data to confirm your seed purchase, population and placement decisions.

Investing in ag? Look to Global AgInvesting's conferences for insight

Seedo Partners With Kibbutz Dan for First-of-its-Kind Fully Automated Indoor and Containerized Commercial-Scale Cannabis Farm

AI-powered climate control technology serves growing demand for pesticide-free products around the globe.

Precision Irrigation Scheduling: Should We Have A Problem? (Part 2)

We'll focus on three major sources of data that are used in various degrees for irrigation scheduling support. My premise here is that these data sources have not remained static but have indeed improved significantly over time.

The Fourth Industrial Revolution

For agricultural and biological engineers this new industrial era vindicates what we have been pursuing all along, and it shines a spotlight on our role in addressing one of humanity's grand challenges: designing resilient and sustainable food systems for the planet.

The Future of Agronomy With STEM Cultivation

Each STEM Box can produce between 200-300 lbs. (strain dependent) of dry yield annually (assuming five harvests/year) in only 2400 ft³ of growing space, with peak power consumption (i.e. late-stage flowering) of 400 kWh/day.

Precision Irrigation Scheduling: We Have A Problem

Precision agriculture technologies, particularly irrigation technologies, are still trying to prove their worth to producers in a way that would make them willing to leave the old ways behind to explore these new technologies for field operations.

The Practicality of Container Farming

Container farms can be found in cities and backyards, parking lots and warehouses around the world. This kind of farming has interested millions of people, who like the idea of using discarded containers for farming.
