Each year, a Trends Council of more than 50 Whole Foods Market team members, including local foragers, regional and global buyers, and culinary experts compile trend predictions based on decades of experience and expertise.
With agritech, farmers are able to better understand their crops at a smaller scale, conserve resources, and reduce environmental impacts. And now, this technology has blended into smaller farms and producers.
Like many other industries, agriculture has discovered the benefits of data mobility, industry 4.0, and new technologies that unlock productivity and cost savings.
Over the past century, technology has made leaps and bounds bringing ease to people's lives. The agricultural industry is no different. With access to breakthrough technologies like drones, GPS, satellite imagery, robots, predictive modeling, machine learning & blockchain.
Container farms can be found in cities and backyards, parking lots and warehouses around the world. This kind of farming has interested millions of people, who like the idea of using discarded containers for farming.
The digital evolution within the ag industry has been constant over the last decade and continually evolving; however, it doesn't come without its challenges. Digital ag and ag tech aren't always easy to adopt.
What Spread is focused on is fully integrated solutions on a large scale and then also adding key technologies to make the business more profitable - so adding lots of automation, sensors and data collection points.
Because biofuels are made from agricultural products, fuel production from such products implies the use of agricultural land and crops that can also be used for the production of food.
It is estimated that one acre of vertical farming offers the equivalent production of at least four to six acres using conventional outdoor methods.
While conventional plant cultivation practices cause climate change, deforestation, loss of biodiversity and ecosystem degradation, this is not the case with sustainable agriculture.
The growth in the agricultural testing market is attributed to stringent safety and quality regulations for agricultural commodities and the increase in outbreaks of foodborne illnesses.
Most of the food loss comes during the process of getting it to you. A staggering fourteen percent of the food loss actually occurs in transit. Therefore, a new approach is needed. This is where farm to table logistics is a plan where the entire food's journey ...
Already, urban dwellers around the world are enjoying freshly harvested produce grown locally on spare rooftops, in old shipping containers, and in repurposed warehouses. These farms provide tremendous benefits to consumers and producers...
Enclosed facilities used in indoor farming create optimum growing conditions for farmers to grow a crop from the seed to its harvesting stages in lesser time and obtain higher yields in each cycle with limited land area.
Modern growers incorporate tools like software, sensors, and robotics into their operations. But as agriculture become increasingly digital, how do technology creators build products that are as useful as possible?
