Even with generations of accumulated knowledge, farming continues to require innovation and informed decision making. Thanks to a plethora of scientific discoveries and inventions, farmers are now better at their jobs than ever before.
A new generation of farmers are rising to the sustainability challenge. This agricultural revolution presents the transition from traditional farming to futuristic high-tech artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics.
What is automation? How can automation help farmers do more with less? Is automation in agriculture a good idea? How is automation transforming the farming industry? Farmer's exploring technology tend to ask the same questions.
Right now, the focus is to take vertical farming to the next level by developing smart robots which can increase precision and productivity, while minimizing environmental impact and risk.
At the ETH Zurich, a robot has been developed to mechanically destroy the weeds growing between crops. "Rowesys" is conveniently started via remote control - and makes herbicides unnecessary.
To optimize its automation infrastructure, the farm required an advanced control network to monitor the anaerobic digestion process and maximize productivity. CC-Link IE Field provided the right solution.
The agricultural sector is undergoing significant changes and is modernising. To take the strain off farmers, many robots are being developed to automate tasks. What specific technical characteristics should ag machinery manufacturers take into account to assist farmers?
The use of agbots is increasing to help with the shortage of human farm labor. Robots are being used to pick fruit, milk cows, and other jobs that formerly required human labor. These agbots have specialized arms that can perform a variety of farm duties.
Farming automation has proved to increase the return from the soil while strengthening the soil's fertility. This article is a brief overview regarding the up-to-date application of automation in agriculture.
The current trend of automation has witnessed the development of new technologies that are capable of providing end-to-end automation for the production of certain processed foods.
The fully automated growing system for hydroponic baby leaf lettuce has been installed at Fresh Local Produce of Ohio and is already producing fresh, tasty and sustainable leafy greens for local distribution in Ohio, Pennsylvania and Indiana.
IoT devices permit growers to assemble more data about the condition of their farms, and IoT is indicating great potential for improving provision delivery and propelling agriculture to utmost productivity.
The world's first mango auto-harvester was presented at the recent Australian Mango conference in Darwin, while the first commercial robotic apple harvester is already in use in New Zealand.
The technological advances in agriculture are not just to do with social media savvy cows - the global agricultural robots market was estimated to account for a market revenue of $2,927 million in 2016, but is expected to rocket to $11,050 million in 2023.
Whether were talking about those who worked in flour mills or those who dealt with windmills, automated processes have always been on inventors minds.
