Higher yields can be achieved by artificially increasing the CO2 concentration in the greenhouse, especially for vegetables. This offers greenhouse operators an enormous competitive advantage compared to outdoor cultivation.
CO2, humidity and temperature sensors must provide accurate and reliable measurement results to the climate control system in the greenhouse. Inaccurate or even false readings impact on productivity and, in the worst case, can jeopardize the entire harvest.
When precision is needed to improve the yield of a grow room, consider all the factors that must be controlled. Integrating sensors to monitor these attributes are key to improving the environmental conditions of a grower.
Freight Farms and Sodexo Announce Strategic National Partnership to Grow Food Onsite at School Campuses Across the U.S.
With sustainability and transparency in mind, partnership will enable year-round on-campus food production at university and K-12 educational institutions and other national Sodexo clients.
As the availability and volume of data to help us understand what is happening or will happen in an agricultural field or orchard continues to grow exponentially, the challenge we now face is how to collect, synthesize and use this data.
By positioning sensors, farmers can understand their crops at a micro scale, sustain resources, and reduce environmental impact.
With our B2B commercial model, we have developed automated commercial containers for the cultivation of both medical cannabis, as well as vegetables and herbs.
New HOBOnet Field Monitoring System from Onset Enables Cost-Effective Cloud-based Monitoring of Environmental Conditions across Fields and Greenhouses
HOBOnet gives growers and researchers greater visibility into field conditions with near real-time data from wireless sensors, alert notifications, and access via mobile devices
Quantified Ags LoRa-based sensors allow accurate analysis of a cows health, increasing efficiency
The seed funding from several mid-western VC firms with deep experience in agricultural technologies, IoT, and big data technologies is an expert validation of HerdDoggs technology and market potential.
"We think this is the best use-case of AI (Artificial Intelligence) today. Weve basically turned a vocal sound into a machine command and proven integration of different systems is possible," says CEO Darryn Keiller.
A group grid of points (or virtual sensors) are created by an initial model estimate of the conditions at the surface (and above) and that virtual sensor is then nudged by the observations around it to the more accurate value.
The tool making these water measurements possible is a tiny graphene sensor that can be taped to plants - researchers have dubbed it a "plant tattoo sensor."
Desiree Kaplan for GreenMatters: Basically, the robot is towed behind a tractor and uses its cameras to automatically identify, target, and destroy weeds with nearly perfect accuracy.
Anne Trafton for MIT News Office: MIT engineers have created sensors that can be printed onto plant leaves and reveal when the plants are experiencing a water shortage

Did you know precision agriculture, on average, raises yields 1.75% and reduces energy costs as much as $32 per acre while also reducing water usage by 8%? (MDPI). FreeWave can fully optimize your agricultural operations to reduce costs while increasing profits and yields for less. We've got you covered with our free Precision Ag guide. But first, we'd love some information...
