Science and technology go hand-in-hand in solving the world's problems and robotics and automation are the latest innovations set to tackle one of our biggest issues - poverty.
Knorr® Will Launch 50 Regenerative Agriculture Projects Across the World to Reduce Food's Impact on The Climate
Estimated to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and water use of key ingredients by approximately 30% while improving biodiversity, soil health and livelihoods
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.
There are challenges that vertical farmers face that they must solve to meet those future food needs and to remain sustainable. Here are some of the challenges, along with potential solutions, of vertical farming.
Wastes from fields and wastes from processing are the two kinds of agricultural wastes. Field wastes are present after harvesting crops and include stems, leaves, and stalks, and waste after processing crops includes seeds, peels, husks, etc.
To encourage locals to source their foods from farmers, the agricultural industry has teamed up with technological experts to find ways to make it easier for farmers and the general population to form a trusted relationship.
BABYLON MICRO-FARMS PARTNERS WITH HARVEST TABLE, PROVIDING FRESHER, HYPER-LOCAL FOOD OPTIONS TO TOP UNIVERSITIES ACROSS AMERICA
These micro-farms produce the freshest, high-quality selection of crops for kitchens to use in preparing their menus. Food from Babylon Micro-Farms is not only good for your health, but also for the environment.
If you think about it, an industry that is wholly dependent on nature and the environment should look to the sun for free power. No wonder agriculture was one of the first industries to adopt solar energy.
Primarily, recyclable renewable energy works with solar panels and indoor farming. It offers multiple benefits for farmers, environmentalists and businesses alike. Here's how recycling renewable energy can benefit indoor farming.
Water conservation is a popular topic within agriculture and throughout the world. Over 7.6 billion people populate the earth, and each person needs access to safe drinking water.
As freshwater supplies become increasingly limited and the world's population continues to grow, Auburn University College of Agriculture researchers are working on ways to find and utilize alternative water resources for irrigating crops.
Congress has a golden opportunity to create jobs and deliver nutritious, local, and sustainable produce to people who live in frontline and food desert communities. These are the people who suffer the most from a lack of access to nutritious produce.
In spring, farmers' stores of winter veg will be running low and the new season's crops are not yet ready to be harvested. This period is called the "hungry gap". During the hungry gap, Britain relies even more heavily on imports to feed itself.
The delicacy of our food supply networks has been exposed, and now is the time to reflect on how our systems could change for the better, as well as our behaviour as consumers - demonstrated by those who have pledged to support local businesses more during this time.
As the pandemic exacerbates the issues in our global food system, we wanted to understand why the system is failing, and how we can build a more resilient one in the future.

Artificial intelligence can be used, for example, to classify fruit varieties or to identify damaged parts (e.g. apples with marks or colour deviations). To cover all possible variances with classical image processing would be very time-consuming and costly. AI is able to solve these challenges in no time at all. With IDS NXT ocean, there is now a user-friendly complete solution for industrial applications available. It requires neither special knowledge in deep learning nor camera programming.
