Decreasing soil tillage can reduce carbon emissions. Reducing these greenhouse gas emissions in agriculture can help combat climate change and lead to a more sustainable agricultural system - and ultimately a more sustainable environment.
Using a close looped water recycling system, Kalera uses an estimated 95% less water than traditional field farming. This is especially important for the western parts of the United States
As farms across the country embrace new technology, fiber optic connections could become a crucial stepping stone to digital transformation and precision agriculture. Here's how.
AgriCapture is expanding its growing Soil Enrichment Project to enable more farmers to receive premium payments for their climate-friendly practices. Since its launch, the project has more than doubled in size, with over 110,000 acres of regenerative farmland enrolled.
Healthy soil functions as a living organism and is incredibly complex. Details like soil pH, moisture content and mycorrhizae levels affect how plants grow. Many farmers use soil tests to help them understand what's going on underground and supplement their crops.
At its best, soil is an ecosystem filled with fungi, healthy bacteria and organic matter. Healthy soil protects plants from pests, reduces weed growth and sustains healthy crops year after year.
Rogitex inc. wanted to verify the effects of their agricultural ag input, Humic Land, on bell pepper on yields during a winter crop. Humic Land is a highly water-soluble organic soil amendment containing high Humic Acids and Fulvic Acids.
AI is on the cusp of driving an agricultural revolution, and helping confront the challenge of feeding our growing global population in a sustainable way. But researchers warn that using new AI technologies at scale holds huge risks that are not being considered.
The Company's proprietary soil-based farming system enables it to completely eliminate climate-damaging synthetic fertilizers. New farm is the ninth of a planned 15 facilities in strategic locations across the country
Cover crops. No-till. Biological diversity. Microbial health. You've heard it all before. The techniques and principles of good soil health practices are well known but not widely adopted. Why?
The world loses 24 billion tons of fertile land every year, for which erosion is responsible for a considerable portion. Farmers and other professionals that disrupt the landscape, like construction teams, must do what they can to stop this trend.
Perdue Farms Expands Pasture-Raised Chicken Program, Unique Raising Practice Yields Increased Nutrient Density and Regenerative Environmental Benefits
From an environmental perspective, moving the chickens to fresh pasture every day returns important benefits to the land including increasing soil organic matter, sequestering atmospheric carbon into the soil, and improving the soil's water-holding capacity.
Although there are some excellent ideas to sequester carbon, one method may prove more effective than others. It's time to take a closer look at biochar and its potential future in agriculture.
EarthOptics Raises $10.3 million in Series A Funding, Led by Leaps by Bayer, to Accelerate Carbon Mapping
Investment to help accelerate roll-out of soil mapping and machine learning technologies for most accurate soil carbon content and compaction readings
Biostimulants are substances or micro-organisms, which, when applied to seeds, plants, rhizosphere in specific formulations, are capable of making changes in physiological processes in plants and benefit the plants by boosting growth and increasing nutrient content.

"Smart farming" is an important part of the answer to this existential question: Extremely high efficiency in food production through the targeted use of the latest technology, computer-supported and - where possible - fully automatic. Seeds are individually and precisely placed; fruits carefully picked by mechanical grippers; fertilizers and plant protection products applied in small doses and in a targeted manner. These operations require a large number of small electric motors that are both robust and powerful.
