AQUAPONICS MUSHROOMS & INSECTS

After months of work and collaboration, AVFami (Aquaponics, Mushrooms & Insects) has developed an exciting new white paper talking about how to re-imagine the way we think about vertical farming. Instead of viewing each organism as a marketable product in a linear system, we encourage you to begin considering an ecosystem approach: looking at how the inputs and outputs of every organism can compliment each other, including insects and mushrooms. In thinking about our systems this way we can both reduce our carbon footprints and reduce those of the communities around us. Please, read the white paper (see link below) to get a better understanding of this concept and use it as a catalyst for conversations to come!

ERS SENSORS: ADDRESSING THE MISCONCEPTIONS

A white paper that goes into further depth and analysis to quantify the expected distortion. However, the proof ultimately lies in the ability of ERS sensors to deliver the same quality imagery as their global shutter counterparts. The Sentera Double 4K, equipped with two 12-megapixel ERS sensors, is an excellent demonstration of this. The Double 4K equipped on various drone platforms consistently provides accurate, low-distortion imagery that can be reliably stitched into a 2D mosaic or 3D point cloud.

CLOUD TECHNOLOGIES THAT ARE SHAPING THE FUTURE OF FARMING

Only 17% of farmers currently use cloud computing, according to a 2014 Farm Journal survey. These users can sync their data on various devices and take advantage of customized software to get a more accurate picture of exactly what's happening down in the fields. But for those 83% of farmers and agronomists just getting introduced to cloud technology, where should you start?

THREE WAYS SPECIALTY CROP FARMERS CAN PROTECT YIELDS WITH PRECISION AG TECH

By 2050, it’s expected that the world’s population will reach 9.2 billion people, 34 percent higher than today, according to an IBM research study. To keep up with rising populations and income growth, global food production must increase by 70 percent in order to be able to feed the world. And according to the Census of Agriculture, there are over 14 million acres of specialty crops in the United States alone. In recent years, specialty crops have accounted for 30 to 40 percent of the total value of U.S. crops.
