Scouting technology has never been more advanced. But this added sophistication does not mean field health imagery tools are more complicated or unfriendly.
When it comes to lighting a greenhouse or any indoor grow facility, the number of factors to consider can seem overwhelming. Should you choose intelligent LEDs? Should you go old-school with HPS?
Even with generations of accumulated knowledge, farming continues to require innovation and informed decision making. Thanks to a plethora of scientific discoveries and inventions, farmers are now better at their jobs than ever before.
In 2019, the Lotus House community expanded its resources and programming with the arrival of a Greenery container farm. The farm is the cornerstone of the nonprofit's educational programs for young residents, inspiring their curiosity about science, plants and nutrition.
Just like a satellite, SolarXOne is packed with technologies. Half airplane, half drone, this UAV weighs 25 kg, has a 4.50 m wingspan, and is innovative in several ways.
I think it is fair to say that most farmers know that things need to change. The Agriculture industry is littered with legacy systems that are outdated and ineffective.
A new generation of farmers are rising to the sustainability challenge. This agricultural revolution presents the transition from traditional farming to futuristic high-tech artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics.
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.
Wastes from fields and wastes from processing are the two kinds of agricultural wastes. Field wastes are present after harvesting crops and include stems, leaves, and stalks, and waste after processing crops includes seeds, peels, husks, etc.
CO2, humidity and temperature sensors must provide accurate and reliable measurement results to the climate control system in the greenhouse. Inaccurate or even false readings impact on productivity and, in the worst case, can jeopardize the entire harvest.
While there are lighting fundamentals that apply no matter what type of facility growers are operating, there are certain strategies that indoor growers must use to be successful that are different than approaches greenhouse growers take.
While yields are attractive, vertical farms have significant capital required for infrastructure, high land costs, and of course significant energy demands. The reality of these COG dynamics requires that vertical farm operators work hard to optimize their production.
Light has a complex relationship with plants. When the light touches a leaf, it can be absorbed by, reflected from, or transmitted through to other leaves. Plants appear green to us because they reflect and transmit slightly more green light than they do blue or red.
By using a computer vision-controlled system to map terrain and identify the size and location of rocks embedded in the soil, the heavy lifting is done by automated machinery which saves farmers a lot of time and money.
Growers who are able to optimize the supplemental light they provide to plants can eliminate seasonal changes in production cycles, increase crop production, ensure crop consistency and grow quality plants year-round.

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.
