The Use of Biostimulants for Enhancing Soil Nutrient Content

Biostimulants are substances or micro-organisms, which, when applied to seeds, plants, rhizosphere in specific formulations, are capable of making changes in physiological processes in plants and benefit the plants by boosting growth and increasing nutrient content.

Building a True IoT Ecosystem for Smart Farming

When deploying standalone solutions, the challenge comes later on when they won't be able to aggregate data and will be forced to manage multiple systems with functionalities that overlap, therefore losing the power of an interoperable system.

Monetizing a New Agricultural Commodity: Where to Start with Carbon Credits

What is starting to change for farmers is the increasing focus globally of large carbon emitters wanting or needing to offset their carbon footprint, This can either be through self-imposed sustainability goals, or it can be enforced by a government.

How image data is changing agriculture

Anyone who wants to realize applications in which objects with a wide variety of characteristics - such as vegetables or fruit - are to be reliably recognized, cannot afford to ignore image processing with artificial intelligence.

Finding Ease in Innovation: The Journey of a Mississippi Farmer

Innovation can be counterintuitive. Progress can challenge conventional wisdom. And it's not always difficult to do something better. Steve has learned this firsthand - and many times over.

Trimble and HORSCH Partner to Deliver Autonomy Solutions to the Agriculture Market

The collaboration extends beyond autonomously controlling machines, such as the self-propelled crop protection sprayers, to full workflow automation from the office to the field.

Hedging Against Climate Uncertainty with Controlled Growth Environments

Global warming and climate uncertainty are making traditional farming increasingly unpredictable. But there is a solution - hedging against climate uncertainty with Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA), from traditional greenhouses to vertical farming.

How Pecan Farmers Can Mitigate Ambrosia Beetle Attacks in and After This Pandemic

The pandemic brought more problems to the ongoing fight of sustainable farming and keeping up with demand with a shrinking labor force. Due to pandemic restrictions, logically farmers would have to find ways to still carry out routine functions prudent to pecan farming.

The 13.5% Barometer

A useful tool in evaluating last year's nitrogen application is to look at your hard-red spring (HRS) wheat protein. The protein level can be used as a barometer to evaluate your past year's application.

Data-driven Platform to Maximize Orchard Efficiency

MapMyApple collects data from the user's orchard, runs it through the algorithms and the advanced disease models, determines if there is a need to spray, chooses the right product, and schedules a spraying activity for the selected block.

Robotic Applications in Agriculture

The spike in robotic technology primarily has to do with the fact that there is a growing population that needs food. Without technology and automated applications in agriculture, it would be highly challenging for farmers to meet people's demands.

Flushing Hydroponic Systems: Nutrient Imbalance, Waste, and An Alternative Solution

We recommend that hydroponic growers flush their systems every month to every few months, depending on the type of system they're running. But why? We're also fans of recirculating system because it conserves water and nutrients.

Indoor Agtech 2021, an Evolving Landscape

Since the initial release of our Indoor AgTech Landscape in 2019, indoor agriculture has continued to garner tremendous attention and investment because of the compelling benefits of growing food in a controlled indoor environment.

NASA Harvest And CropX Partner To Support Sustainable Ag Initiatives

Combining the power of CropX soil data monitoring and NASA's network of Earth-observing satellites, NASA Harvest aims to deliver critical insights to governments and farmers around the globe in support of informed and science-driven decision making.

Can Artificial Intelligence Help Growers Win the Weed Wars?

There are few herbicides available for specialty crops, making hand weeding the "go to" process. Could intelligent weeding machines be the answer? Based on technology advances made to date, experts say the answer is likely yes.

Dynatect Automated Machine Safety Roll-Up Doors

Dynatect Automated Machine Safety Roll-Up Doors

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.
