The Value of Remote Sensing Data in Agriculture (Part I)

Of all the new technologies appearing on the farm, "remote sensing" systems (devices that measure conditions from a distance, commonly an aircraft or satellite) are unique in their ability to deliver information on the existing conditions in the field.

How Next-Level Field Health Imagery Helps You See Beyond The End Rows

Field health images can be compared with other important data layers, such as yield, to give farmers a deeper understanding of crop performance that they can use as they plan for the next season.

Europe's Largest Indoor Farm

The intensive plant nursery, located in North Lincolnshire, England, will be the largest indoor farm in Europe, producing up to 420 tonnes of leafy greens per year across a growing area of 5120m2, arranged in racks rising to the height of 11m.

NASA Taps Osram to Support Its Food Production Research

Osram's smart horticulture lighting system prototype used in NASA ground research to help provide space crews with a reliable source of fresh food.

Effects of Extreme Weather on Farming
