We're reappropriating previously unusable industrial space to grow crops indoors, closer to the point of consumption, at a rate that is 100+ times more productive per square foot of land than that of traditional agriculture.
AGT Unveils Cleanroom Technology, Energy Efficiency and Fast Build Times to Empower Growers. The hybrid structures have transformed traditional plastic covered greenhouses into modern, insulated, sealed, natural light, cleanroom laboratories with unmatched energy efficiency.
Although they promise streamlined farming operations, higher yields and greater costs savings for growers, how much of AI and machine learning in agriculture today is more hype than reality?
If we can incorporate technology into already existing farming practices, we can increase production enough to feed the growing world. Technology can be used to grow more food on existing farms and to grow food in small spaces, such as indoor farms.
Ongoing advances in numerous fields, including LED and sensor technology, cloud computing, artificial intelligence and the Internet of Things, is enabling farm owners and managers to meet the increasing demands on pricing, efficiency and feeding a growing global population.
The ground-mounted system installed by JKB Energy located in Kettleman City, California, is the second largest net-metered solar project in PG&E territory and has a projected annual savings of $435,490
Plant breeding has been going on for 10,000 years but technology -unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), robots, artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning -is revolutionizing the practice.
Autonomous equipment technology will tackle the growing concern of labor shortages while boosting productivity and ecomonical savings, which will bring higher yields. The technology will allow for true 24/7 operations ...
Do you have a problem that AI might be able to solve? If so, have you started collecting the data that might be needed? The sooner you get started, the sooner you might be able to see the benefits.
For instance, our greenhouse clients can obtain a 50% to 70% reduction in error in harvest forecasts from the start; following a year of further learning, the AI technology can reduce errors by more than 70%.
Current, powered by GE celebrated the opening of CHAP's new Vertical Farming Development Facility, supported by Innovate UK and based at Stockbridge Technology Centre (STC).
The days of watching the weather report on the local news are gone. Today, farmers have upgraded to 21st century technology and trust on-site, hyper-local weather stations.
We will see a lot more of agriculture apps in the not so distant future. Paper records are archaic and frustrating, as well as inefficient and monotonous. The future is in digital mobile apps.
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.
Robotics startup with deep roots in plant science aims to feed the world through intelligent farming

maxon launches the next generation of positioning controllers - the EPOS4. A high performance module with detachable pin headers and two different power ratings. With a connector board, the modules can be combined into a ready-to-install compact solution. Suitable for efficient and dynamic control of brushed and brushless DC motors with Hall sensors and encoders up to 750 W continuous power and 1500 W peak power. The modular concept also provides for a wide variety of expansion options with Ethernet-based interfaces, such as EtherCAT or absolute rotary encoders.
