Tech Innovations Protecting the Agriculture Industry from Invasive Species

Invasive species pose a major threat to this industry because they can quickly redefine entire ecosystems. Many companies are developing tech solutions to eliminate invasive species and protect yields.

AgriCapture doubles Soil Enrichment Project; Expands to over 110,000 acres of regenerative farmland

AgriCapture is expanding its growing Soil Enrichment Project to enable more farmers to receive premium payments for their climate-friendly practices. Since its launch, the project has more than doubled in size, with over 110,000 acres of regenerative farmland enrolled.

The World of Future Farming and Artificial Intelligence

The marriage of AI and agriculture is real and it is promising. Now, more than ever, it appears that the future of farming may well lie in artificial intelligence technologies.

Controlled Environment Agriculture: A Fertile Landscape for Robot Suppliers

A number of vendors were displaying robotic solutions at Greentech this year. These solutions ranged from newly introduced mobile harvesting robots, to more traditional stationary robots used for processes like transplanting, grading, and sorting.

The Potential for Using Smartphones for Soil Nutrient Testing

Healthy soil functions as a living organism and is incredibly complex. Details like soil pH, moisture content and mycorrhizae levels affect how plants grow. Many farmers use soil tests to help them understand what's going on underground and supplement their crops.

Wilbur-Ellis Partners with Guardian Agriculture in Multi-Million Dollar Agreement to Bring Autonomous Aerial Application to Growers Across America

The largest agricultural robotics investment commitment to date brings leading innovation in autonomous aircraft to the agriculture industry

What Technology is Needed to Properly Develop and Maintain Soil Health

At its best, soil is an ecosystem filled with fungi, healthy bacteria and organic matter. Healthy soil protects plants from pests, reduces weed growth and sustains healthy crops year after year.

Examining the Environmental Implications of Biofuel

Most farm equipment either uses diesel or fossil-fuel-derived electricity, so transitioning to biofuels as an alternate fuel source could have several environmental benefits.

Leveraging Data Analytics for Higher Agricultural Yields

Agricultural yields must improve, but farms can't expand the way they have for much of their history. The solution to this problem is data analytics.

Decarbon8 Investment Opportunity Open for AgTech Innovation and Decarbonization Startups

The Decarbon8 Fund announced a new Request for Proposal (RFP) for companies advancing regenerative agriculture solutions that reduce greenhouse gas emissions and other environmental impacts.

Automated drones could scare birds off agricultural fields

In the future, cameras could spot blackbirds feeding on grapes in a vineyard and launch drones to drive off the avian irritants, then return to watch for the next invading flock. All without a human nearby.

CubicFarms and Deloitte Join Forces on New Carbon Commercialization Program

HydroGreen's commercial scale Automated Vertical Pastures™ technology helps meet increasing demand for valuable farm-based inset and offset carbon credits from all manner of organizations with net-zero goals.

With the Power of Autonomous Iron, Caterpillar Pulls Off the Ultimate Trick Shot in Cat Trial 12: No Hands

On a field in the middle of the Arizona desert, a soccer legend and autonomous Cat® machines use proven technology to conquer challenging obstacle courses and score a major goal in the name of safety and efficiency.

How Technology Can Bolster Farm Resilience to Shifting Temperatures

Maintaining abundant crop yields can effectively shrink society's starvation rate. Targeting greenhouse gas emissions and adverse field effects can increase global food security.

Does High-Tech Agriculture Equipment Help or Hinder Today's Farmers?

While new technology is exciting, it can carry some unforeseen risks. Here are a few of the most significant issues that tech-forward farmers face.

Innovative SWIR camera for UAV based spectral remote sensing

Innovative SWIR camera for UAV based spectral remote sensing

Allied Vision's compact and light weight Alvium SWIR (short wave infrared) cameras are the ideal choice to build cost-effective OEM systems used in embedded and machine vision applications. The cameras support a spectral range from 400 nm to 1700 nm at high quantum efficiencies. This allows to capture images in both the visible and SWIR spectra with a single camera and enables users to reduce overall system costs! Equipped with Sony's IMX990 and IMX991 SenSWIR InGaAs sensors, Alvium SWIR cameras deliver high image quality and frame rates. This makes them well suited for drones or handheld devices used in various industries such as, agriculture, mining, solar cell inspection or medical.
