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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
