Using Drones to Find Drainage Pipes
To improve the soil water removal efficiency of drained farmland, and thereby increase crop yields, new drain lines are often installed between pre-existing drain lines. This requires accurate maps of the drainage pipe that is already in place.
Why Narrow Bands Matter
Advancements like nutrient monitoring and early disease detection are only possible using precise, repeatable measurements. To generate such measurements, a multispectral camera must be a "narrow band" camera.
Understanding Which Fields Are Ready for Planting with AgMRI
Thermal imagery is a game of correlation: we use long-wave infrared radiation to give us insights on the temperature profile of the field, but we can also make correlations to other weather-sensitive metrics such as grain moisture and anaerobic zones.
Mapping Potassium Deficiency: Table Grapes in the San Joaquin Valley
Growers know their crop and the pitfalls that diminish yield quality and quantity. Walking the field garners valuable information, but not all problems are visible to the naked eye, especially during early stages of a pest infestation, disease onset, or nutrient deficiency.
It is Agriculture's Turn to Put the Next Generation of Digital Technologies to Work
It is exciting to see the technologies that have made a life-saving difference in medicine now being applied to producing more food from every acre with the best quality.

The ERT150 - Dorner's Next Evolution of Edge Roller Technology Conveyors
The next evolution in Dorner's Edge Roller Technology conveyor platform, the ERT®150, is ideal for small and light-load assembly automation, as well as medical and medical-device assembly application. The ERT platform is the only pallet conveyor of its kind available with an ISO Standard Class 4 rating for cleanroom applications. Earning the ISO Standard 14644-1 Class 4 rating means Dorner's ERT150 will conform and not contribute to the contamination of cleanrooms to those standards. As implied by its name, the ERT150 (Edge Roller Technology) uses rollers to move pallets through the conveyor smoothly with no friction (a byproduct often seen in belt-driven platforms). The conveyor's open design eliminates concerns of small parts or screws dropping into rollers and causing conveyor damage or jamming. The ERT150 is suited to operate in cleanroom environments requiring a pallet handling conveyor. It is capable of zoning for no or low-back pressure accumulation and is ideal for automation assembly applications within industries including medical devices, electronics, consumer goods among others.
