Advancements in Remote Control Technologies in Irrigation Systems

The irrigation controllers market is driven by factors such as the growing need for water conservation, increased need for modern agricultural practices, the need for the adoption precision farming, and the growing lawn and garden area.

IoT-based Smart Irrigation Systems Transforming Irrigation Industry

The combination of the Internet of Things (IoT) and AI technologies, such as machine learning, computer vision, and predictive analytics, further allow farmers to analyse real-time data of weather conditions, temperature, soil moisture, and plant health.

Precision Irrigation Scheduling: Can We Cross The Chasm? (Part 3)

As the grower, trusted advisor, and the technologist move to a suite of precision technologies from the early adopter stage to the mainstream majority, we can get the next wave of innovation in the hands of the early adopters and the chasm will be crossed sooner than later.

Precision Irrigation Scheduling: Should We Have A Problem? (Part 2)

We'll focus on three major sources of data that are used in various degrees for irrigation scheduling support. My premise here is that these data sources have not remained static but have indeed improved significantly over time.

Precision Irrigation Scheduling: We Have A Problem

Precision agriculture technologies, particularly irrigation technologies, are still trying to prove their worth to producers in a way that would make them willing to leave the old ways behind to explore these new technologies for field operations.

A Look At Irrigation Management Practices In Nebraska

Running sprinklers on the right, impending downpours on the left - color me confused. Why would growers, who are much more knowledgeable about their crops, put down water when thunderstorms are rumbling on the horizon?

WaterBit Secures $11.4M Financing Led by NEA

Precision irrigation company to accelerate delivery of autonomous irrigation and ramp up sales and marketing.

Polycarbonate Enclosures a Good Fit for Irrigation Controls

ITC knew that metal enclosure options would not fit the companys needs because agricultural sprays and chemicals typically degrade metal boxes quickly. Therefore, a non-metallic option would be best, due to the materials ability to withstand corrosion in the field.

Is a Smart Irrigation Controller Worth The Money?

The first step is to determine what it is youre looking to get from your irrigation system. For example, if zoned irrigation or rain sensors arent important to you, the cost of a smart sprinkler system may not be worth it in the long run.

Smart irrigation scheme cuts water use and boosts crop yields - scientists

BT: The micro-irrigation system, which is being trialled on a farm in Tamil Nadu, southern India, has cut water use by up to 80% and doubled the yields of some crops, the scientists from Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh said.

Farmers bank on solar power to stave off European water crisis

Steve Gillman for Horizon: Rising populations and climate change are putting pressure on the water needed for agriculture but a solar-powered irrigation system may reduce the amount that farmers use - while simultaneously slashing the sectors greenhouse gas emissions.

GardenSpace, a Smart Garden Robot that Waters, Monitors, and Protects Plants, Launches on Kickstarter

Dynatect Automated Machine Safety Roll-Up Doors

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.
