UGA awarded $4 million to design farm of the future
The long-term goal of the 4-D Farm is to develop climate-smart production systems leveraging renewable energy, automation, intelligence and human capital to meet the required food and fiber needs of a burgeoning world population.
Is Climate Change Impacting the Growth of Commercial Agriculture?
It is important to remember that technology should be viewed as a tool that can be used to optimize or improve the situation. What it isn't, however, is a free pass to continue implementing unsustainable practices.
The Role of AI and Machine Learning in Advancing Sustainable Biologicals in Agriculture
AI and machine learning solutions can help identify new microbial strains with beneficial agricultural properties, marking them as good candidates to improve biologicals such as biopesticides, biofertilizers, and biostimulants.
Purdue biology innovation allows the introduction of valuable traits in plants without creating transgenic plants
Patent-pending novel Agrobacterium strains deliver transfer DNA to a plant's nucleus without integrating it into the genome
Plenty Opens World's Most Technologically Advanced Indoor Vertical Farm in Compton
West Coast's only commercial-scale vertical farm will grow up to 4.5M pounds of produce annually to supply partners including Bristol Farms, Walmart and Whole Foods Market
The Sky's the Limit for Vertical Farming at University of Washington
Project IF (Indoor farm) is a small hydroponic farm housed in the basement of an on-campus academic building. This registered student organization (RSO) grows fresh food without the need for soil in hydroponic ZipGrow Towers.
Seafields will develop stationary aquafarms together with MacroCarbon
By baling and storing large quantities of the seaweed at over 4000 metres below sea level in the deep abyssal plain of the Atlantic Ocean, the company aims to trap a gigatonne every year of atmospheric carbon dioxide for thousands of years.
How Synthetic Data will Revolutionize Agriculture
Synthetic data is not a replacement for original data, but a secondary source, one that can reduce the time, cost, and effort in obtaining original data. It offers great potential in reducing the time and investment of bringing new agricultural products to market.
How to Ensure Freshness from Farm to Fork
With advancements in supply chain resources and quality control measures, the AgTech industry has the potential to revolutionize how we think about fresh produce.
iFarm Will Construct an Automated High-Tech Vertical Farm in the Smart City of Tehuantepec (Mexico)
iFarm will build an automated vertical farm based on the cutting-edge iFarm StackGrow technology. The automated farm will have a total cultivation area of 38.500 square meters to grow over 35 types of leafy greens and microgreens with a hydroponics vertical farming system.
IDTechEx Asks If Emerging Technologies Can Make Food Production More Sustainable
Today, food production represents approximately 20% of global greenhouse gas emissions. In addition, food production is associated with other negative impacts, including high water demand, severe soil degradation, eutrophication, and more.
Being a Good Steward
Wastewater treatment is serious business. Gearboxes from NORD DRIVESYSTEMS help this small community process up to 15 million gallons of it daily, without fail, with no surprises.
Is Commercial Agriculture Experiencing Another Tech Revolution?
For those of us with boots on the ground in the industry, we recognize that the commercial farming sector has quickly become the target industry for some of the most innovative and exciting technological advances of our generation.
Renewably powered aeroponic farms can significantly reduce the environmental impact of fresh produce compared to imports, new study finds.
Aeroponic container farms are a new method of farming that use a soilless technique to grow crops in a controlled environment. This method involves suspending the plant roots in a nutrient-rich mist, which helps to optimise crop growth and reduce water usage.
How Embedded Vision and Ai Are Revolutionizing Agriculture in India
AI algorithms can then process this data to provide insights that aid in decision-making, improving yields and reducing waste. As a result, agriculture businesses can save costs, increase productivity, and ultimately improve their bottom line.

Cartesian robots with the right design upgrades can take over manual transfer operations with ease
Manufacturing and packaging operations that still depend on manual material or parts handling operations can reap immediate benefits from a type of automation based on long-travel Cartesian robots with custom end-of-arm tooling (EOAT) and advanced sensing capabilities. These robots can support a variety of machines - performing otherwise manual tasks such as machine tending or transferring in-process parts - making long-travel Cartesian transfer robots a major upgrade to processes and operations.
