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.
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.
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.
Solar FlexRack Supplies Trackers to Namaste Solar for the Largest Agrivoltaic Research Project in the U.S.
This project will be studying how best to grow wildflowers, pasture and prairie grasses, pollinator habitats, as well as crops, such as carrots, onions, tomatoes and squash that will all be planted this season underneath and around the solar array.
As the world advances in technology, almost every job has had to acclimate, including the livestock industry. Once an off-the-grid profession, agriculture is now fully immersed in what the Internet of Things (IoT) has to offer.
Glenwood Valley Farms and Fluence Partner for LED Implementation, Driving Increased Crop Yields and Greater Energy Efficiency
LED installation enables Glenwood Valley Farms to increase light intensity without raising overall facility temperature
There is no correct or perfect way to run a facility and there is no correct way or perfect to grow plants. Every grower has his or her style. There is no guarantee that everything you do or were taught to do will result in a successful operation.
Agribusiness could profit immensely from blockchain, as its two primary features could do for food deliveries what this software has already done for healthcare, insurance, finance, and more.
Let's take a look at the Organisations and People Changing The World Of Agricultural Science you've likely never heard of, starting with the Organisations Driving Agricultural Science:
Leading tomato grower in Canada sees significant cost savings with LED technology and heavier fruit weights that drive increased yields
Mouser Electronics Releases New Intelligent Revolution eBook Examining AI in Humanitarian Applications
The new eBook examines fascinating new uses for artificial intelligence (AI) in farming and other specialized applications targeting the human experience. Mouser's AI-focused eBook series is part of the company's award-winning Empowering Innovation Together program.
As African countries are getting prepared for the imminent locust crisis, the smart agtech company XAG has proposed that agricultural drones, through more targeted night spraying application, can strongly support the current ground and aerial control measures.
American Robotics Becomes First Company Approved by the FAA To Operate Automated Drones Without Human Operators On-Site
A seminal milestone in the drone industry, American Robotics now meets the safety requirements needed to make drones scalable for widespread commercial use.
As freshwater supplies become increasingly limited and the world's population continues to grow, Auburn University College of Agriculture researchers are working on ways to find and utilize alternative water resources for irrigating crops.
Farming has never been an exact science. Nature is unpredictable and oftentimes unforgiving. Even the slightest changes to weather patterns and temperature can decimate whole fields if they're not harvested in time.

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.
