How to Improve Field Data Accuracy for Better Farming Decisions

Calibrating your yield monitor is an effective step toward accurate data, but it also helps if you take another look at the data you collected from planting and harvest before you use it for decision making.

PrecisionHawk Introduces PrecisionAnalytics - Agriculture, Delivering Aerial Insights and A.I. to Growers, Crop Consultants, Researchers, and Insurers

Using machine learning models, the software features vegetative health indexing, plant and livestock counting, and canopy sizing, all of which can be tailored for specific crops and use cases.

Why Vertical Farming Won't Grow Without More Data

The Princeton Vertical Farming Project (PVFP) researches what the most optimal growing conditions are for indoor farming and how to produce the best crop yield while using the fewest amount of resources (e.g., water, electricity).

The Value of Remote Sensing Data in Agriculture (Part I)

Of all the new technologies appearing on the farm, "remote sensing" systems (devices that measure conditions from a distance, commonly an aircraft or satellite) are unique in their ability to deliver information on the existing conditions in the field.

Field Data Poised For Future Food Chain

The use of real-time data is beginning in agricultural sectors with high-value highly perishable crops such as fresh vegetables, berries and other fresh fruit. There is more communication between the field and the processor in those sectors

IoT Applications in Agriculture

The IoT agricultural applications are making it possible for ranchers and farmers to collect meaningful data. Large landowners and small farmers must understand the potential of IoT market for agriculture by installing smart technologies to increase competitiveness

Here's Why Space Optimization is the Key to Higher Margins

The biggest thing to get right is sales. And sales are driven by how the space in the farm is utilized. Of course, yield is important, but growers need to understand how crops are performing and how much space they occupy as well, because the two are interconnected.

Piracy In The Fields: Agricultural Trade Secrets A Tempting Target

Bryan Thompson for Harvest Public Media: Agriculture today is a high-tech business, but as that technology has developed, so has the temptation to take short cuts and to steal trade secrets that could unlock huge profits.

Dynatect Automated Machine Safety Roll-Up Doors

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.
