    What Agribusiness Data Can and Can't Tell You

    By Marjorie Valin

    Published Aug 2, 2021 

    In agribusiness, big data means collecting everything. The temperature of the air as you plant, the moisture of the kernel as you harvest, the exact coordinate of each weed you find; it all gets absorbed into the digital cloud, analyzed, and processed. The end result is that we know what seeds grow the best in different conditions, statistically speaking... Sure, the corn hybrid ‘SKY-3122’ may rate the best in some parts of the country, but does that mean it’s best for your customers’ farms? The all-time favorite food across the US may be a good old cheeseburger fresh off the grill, but try to make everyone eat one and you’ll end up with a lot of unhappy vegetarians... With all the automation in AgTech, we’re in danger of losing the spark of human instinct and experience...

    Will a food Crisis arise after pandemic crisis?

    By Ammar Alshami

    Published Mar 6, 2021 

    The COVID-19 pandemic introduced unexpected stresses on food systems, creating many immediate challenges. Yet what is remarkable is the speed with which supply chain actors have to date been able to reorganise themselves to ensure the continued availability of food, at least in the developed world. Some bottlenecks remain, and some new disruptions may emerge as COVID-19 continues to spread. The rapid response of food supply chains has underscored the importance of an open and predictable international trading environment, which allows firms to tap into new sources of supply when existing sources are compromised... Moreover, food automation will become a necessity to overcome any food prone diseases...

    By Jenny Hoo

    Published Sep 30, 2019 

    Kedah is a state in northern Malaysia and is well known for its agriculture industry, especially in paddy planting. In Malaysia, according to 2016 statistics, about 700,000 hectare land is provided for paddy planting and average annual growth is projected at 0... Compared to other south east Asian countries, Malaysia is positioned as the net rice importer and least rice production compared to Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam and the Philippines. Malaysia imported 33 percent of their rice from Thailand, Vietnam and Pakistan while producing 67 percent of them locally, primarily in Kedah, Northern Perak and Selangor. On average, a person in Malaysia consumes about 80kg of rice annually...

    What would you recommend for planting in a food plot for deer?

    By Nancy VanderByl

    Published Mar 7 

    Pine Forest, so the soil is probably acidic. Located in North-East corner of Ohio. We are going to grind out the stumps, disc the soil, broadcast the seed and harrow it to finish.

  • An Electrically driven, Computer controlled Robotics platform for Orchard use

    Authors: Jones M H, Seabright M, Barnett J, Neshausen G, Duke M, Scarfe A

    Publisher: Zenodo

    As automation in agriculture progresses, more automation systems will be placed into farms & orchards.

    Systems that service the crops directly are likely to have positioning requirements that make traditional tractor-trailer units unsuitable.

    This paper introduces a platform built for transporting robotics modules through a kiwifruit orchard.

    Performance figures, design considerations and a general hardware overview are presented.

    The platform is controlled either by remote or computer generated drive commands - facilitating autonomous navigation.

    In-orchard testing shows the system is well suited for the target application, achieving stable speed control and repeatable positioning.

    "Automation is coming to nearly every imaginable industry, and agriculture is not immune. The latest proof? A new research project is trying to prove that robots could destroy weeds better than a farmer driving a sprayer full of herbicide."
    "British-based AHDB Horticulture (an organization devoted to various R&D initiatives for British growers) is partially funding a new project called ‘eyeSpot,’ which it says could revolutionize weed control. Researchers at the University of Reading, Knight Farm Machinery and Precision Farming Robotics have teamed together to create an automated spot herbicide ejector."
    "Using an imaging system to distinguish weeds from crops, and based on weed size, it will administer an appropriate dosage of herbicide directly on them. Ideally, no herbicide will hit the crop or even the soil – it is hyper-targeted to each individual weed, according to the researchers. They estimate the system could reduce up to 95% of herbicide inputs."

    Pepper-picking robot demonstrates its skills in greenhouse labour automation

    With the rising shortage of skilled workforce in agriculture, there’s a growing need for robotisation to perform labour-intensive and repetitive tasks in greenhouses. Enter SWEEPER, the EU-funded project developing a sweet pepper-harvesting robot that can help farmers reduce their costs.

    The team of experts involved in the project recently gave a live demonstration of the technology in a commercial greenhouse in the Netherlands.

    "Emerging technologies are knocking on the doorsteps of agriculture daily. One of these is facial recognition, not necessarily new when used with humans, but a cutting-edge concept in animal agriculture. David Hunt, co-founder of Cainthus, a company dedicated to digitizing ag practices, spoke to attendees of ONE: The Alltech Ideas Conference about ways we can all take advantage of new developments in digitalization, automation and the cloud."

    Unmanned Aerial Vehicles for High-Throughput Phenotyping and Agronomic Research

    Authors: Yeyin Shi , J. Alex Thomasson, Seth C. Murray, N. Ace Pugh, William L. Rooney, Sanaz Shafian, Nithya Rajan, Gregory Rouze, Cristine L. S. Morgan, Haly L. Neely, Aman Rana, Muthu V.

McCutchen, David D. Baltensperger, Robert V. Avant Jr, Misty Vidrine, Chenghai Yang

    Publisher: PLOS One

    Advances in automation and data science have led agriculturists to seek real-time, high-quality, high-volume crop data to accelerate crop improvement through breeding and to optimize agronomic practices. Breeders have recently gained massive data-collection capability in genome sequencing of plants. Faster phenotypic trait data collection and analysis relative to genetic data leads to faster and better selections in crop improvement. Furthermore, faster and higher-resolution crop data collection leads to greater capability for scientists and growers to improve precision-agriculture practices on increasingly larger farms; e.g., site-specific application of water and nutrients. Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) have recently gained traction as agricultural data collection systems. Using UAVs for agricultural remote sensing is an innovative technology that differs from traditional remote sensing in more ways than strictly higher-resolution images; it provides many new and unique possibilities, as well as new and unique challenges. Herein we report on processes and lessons learned from year 1—the summer 2015 and winter 2016 growing seasons–of a large multidisciplinary project evaluating UAV images across a range of breeding and agronomic research trials on a large research farm. Included are team and project planning, UAV and sensor selection and integration, and data collection and analysis workflow. The study involved many crops and both breeding plots and agronomic fields. The project’s goal was to develop methods for UAVs to collect high-quality, high-volume crop data with fast turnaround time to field scientists. The project included five teams: Administration, Flight Operations, Sensors, Data Management, and Field Research. Four case studies involving multiple crops in breeding and agronomic applications add practical descriptive detail. Lessons learned include critical information on sensors, air vehicles, and configuration parameters for both. As the first and most comprehensive project of its kind to date, these lessons are particularly salient to researchers embarking on agricultural research with UAVs.
