In a closed ecological system, the maintenance of life happens through complete re-use of available material by means of cycles. Exhaled carbon dioxide and other waste matter is renewed chemically or by photosynthesis into oxygen, water and food.
Despite the wide range of hardware and software solutions available to farmers across the agtech landscape, it's important to remember that technology is no substitute for good management practices.
Over the past century, technology has made leaps and bounds bringing ease to people's lives. The agricultural industry is no different. With access to breakthrough technologies like drones, GPS, satellite imagery, robots, predictive modeling, machine learning & blockchain.
There are so many moving parts of your business that affect your readiness. Why is it important to consider all of them? Because the only thing worse than choosing the wrong software for your farm is choosing software that you don't have the resources to implement.
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.
As we rush towards a greener tomorrow, techniques that have been given to us by mother nature are being revived with modern methods. Aquaponics has a long way to go but both economically and environmentally speaking, this path with have many rewards.
Asia Pacific excluding Japan (APEJ) is expected to rise at the most attractive year-over-year growth over the assessment period. This is attributed to the rapid uptake of various smart irrigation technologies in several of it emerging economies
Top Article from 2019 - Irrigation Technology in Agriculture: How New Technologies Overcome Challenges
Technology can, and already does, aid agriculture in innumerable ways. One prominent part of agriculture that can use technological innovation to increase efficiency and effectiveness is irrigation.
By positioning sensors, farmers can understand their crops at a micro scale, sustain resources, and reduce environmental impact.
Successful Field Trials of Edete's Artificial Pollination Technology Advance Entry Into the Huge California Almond Market
About 75% of the world's crops rely on insect pollination. Edete's technology can replace nature's pollinators like honeybees in order to help produce more food and meet the needs of the world's growing population.
By placing RFID tags onto agricultural products' packages, farmers can determine the health condition of the product, making it convenient for processing companies to concurrently add information on the tag, such as enterprise codes, the processing date, batch processing, and package weight.
UbiGro helps growers boost crop yields by providing the best sunlight environment - more orange and red light for enhanced crop growth - without using electricity. UbiGro is a passive solar product.
One of the most promising business cases for cloud and Internet of Things (IoT) services is environmental monitoring to help ensure a stable indoor growing environment for the localized cultivation of non-native crops such as fruits, nuts, vegetables and herbs.
A wide range of technologies can enable the transition of agricultural robots into the field. Some technologies will need to be developed specifically for agriculture, while other technologies already developed for other areas could be adapted to the agricultural domain.
As a farmer, I often work with agronomists. Chris Souder is one of the regional agronomy leads on our team at Bayer Crop Science, and he has a lot of expertise with managing crops in all sorts of conditions. Here's the guidance he's been giving the farmers his team works with.

Need to increase safety? Are you using light curtains? Is space a concern? Dynatect's Gortite® VF Automated Machine Safety Door combines safety technology, speed, and a physical barrier to isolate hazardous operations. Use of a physical barrier with safety sensors can save up to 30 square feet of manufacturing space. Using the ANSI minimum safety distance formula, the Gortite® VF Door limits the depth penetration factor and average approach speed, allowing closer location of the safeguarding device. Unlike light curtains, which can't contain process hazards, an automated machine safety door can isolate common workplace debris. This physical barrier is designed to contain process driven hazards such as weld sparks, UV flash, and light debris. Thus, the operator can maintain closer proximity to the work area improving ergonomics and productivity.
