TerraClear Announces $6.1M Financing Round and Leadership Additions to Automate Rock Picking in Agriculture
TerraClear adds McIlwain to Board, Thompson as President, opens test lab in Idaho, and nearly doubles available cash
PrecisionHawk Introduces PrecisionAnalytics - Agriculture, Delivering Aerial Insights and A.I. to Growers, Crop Consultants, Researchers, and Insurers
Using machine learning models, the software features vegetative health indexing, plant and livestock counting, and canopy sizing, all of which can be tailored for specific crops and use cases.
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.
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.
AUSVI XPONENTIAL brings together the entire unmanned systems community to share ideas and learn about the emerging trends of unmanned technology.
RIO invests in all aspects of the agri-food tech continuum from agricultural productivity to novel protein technologies to healthy foods.
Global AgInvesting New York is the world's preeminent gathering of agriculture investment stakeholders where more than 700 attendees will converge for a comprehensive overview of the ag investment landscape and a clear idea of where the real money is moving in the space.
As growers are looking for new ways to optimize crop production, San Francisco-based FarmWise leverages the latest advances in artificial intelligence and robotics to offer plant-level farming as-a-service.
XPRIZE designs and operates global competitions to incentivize the development of technological breakthroughs that accelerate humanity toward a better future.
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.
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.
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.
In a nutshell, by bringing artificial intelligence and around-the-clock activity, the robots will help optimize the yield of the farms far beyond what could humanly be possible. Maximizing the production while minimizing the costs in energy, water, time.
This integration removes communication hand-off costs and risk, ensuring that everybody responsible for keeping fields healthy is aligned in real-time.
"The robot saves at least five hours in transport time a week, and the working day is quieter and calmer," Broberg said. "I already take 15,000 to 17,000 steps a day in my job, so I definitely don't miss the walk to the pallet stacker."

Precision Farming - Featured Product
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.
