    A New Era of Farm Employees: Farm Technicians vs. Farm Hands?

    Technology may even be the antidote to a number of ills plaguing modern agriculture, which have led to a drastic decrease in the number of farms across the United States. Satellite technology provides a broader view of agricultureTo assess the current state of affairs across the globe, I solicited the expert advice from one of the preeminent farmers in the United States, Joel Salatin, co-owner of Polyface Farm, and John Fargher, co-founder and COO of Australia-based cutting-edge farm management software, AgriWebb...

    What’s the function of Mycorrhiza?

    By Darren Chan

    Published Jan 2, 2019

    Introduction of MycorrhizaExcessive dependence on chemical fertilizers can result in the destruction of a large number of beneficial microbial communities in the soil and a decrease in soil activity. To improve the current soil ecosystem with serious damage and improve soil fertility, it is imperative to supplement soil beneficial microorganisms. The application of microbial fertilizer is the most direct and effective method... Using the modern electron probe technology to study the surface of mycorrhiza, it was found that the “adhesive layer” on the root surface of Pinus taeda and Pinus elliottii roots greatly exceeded the sterile root seedlings, which is 2-3 times of the sterile root seedlings; The enlargement of the adhesive layer is the expansion of the ion exchange area of the plant roots, that is, the exchange, absorption, storage and transportation of nutrients by the root system is increased, thereby facilitating the growth of plants. Prospect of application of mycorrhizaWith the continuous development and progress of science, people’s understanding of mycorrhiza will continue to improve, and the application of mycorrhizal technology will have broad prospects...

    Farmers Edge Releases the Industry’s First Automatic Crop Health Change Detection Tool

    Farmers Edge™ released a ground-breaking, digital tool that automatically scans satellite imagery and notifies growers of changes in their fields. Building upon the release of daily satellite imagery in 2017 and over 70 new features and tools launched this year, new Health Change Maps and Notifications function as an integrated toolset designed to accelerate the speed of decision-making when crop issues emerge. This unique precision digital tool pinpoints potential problems, including pests, disease, nutrient deficiencies, inclement weather, missed application, equipment malfunction, drainage issues, and more. This innovative technology enhances the value of daily imagery by helping growers save time, identify issues quicker, and react to crop stress before yield is impacted.

    Call for applications: Better Cotton Innovation Challenge

    CHALLENGE 1: Customized Learning for Farmers

    How might we better enable customized learning for farmers for continuous improvement?

    Accounting for their unique needs and variances in farm-holding size, previous experiences, skills, and attitudes.

    Your solution can address farmer segmentation, training content, content delivery channels, staggered delivery by farmer journey, through innovations such as personalized training tools and coaching, democratized content creation, remote video-based engagement, voice / speech-based learning technologies and many others

    A customised learning tool for that keeps existing incentives in place and works for all farmers and facilitators under an annualized cost of < USD 4 per farmer

    CHALLENGE 2: Efficiency of Data Collection and Documentation

    How might we increase the efficiency of data collection and documentation to ensure the cotton is produced sustainably?

    Accounting for the extensive data points that BCI Field Facilitators collect for 400-500 farmers each with multiple and repetitive touch points.

    Your solution can address a sub-set of indicators or all indicators through technology advancements such as AI, Satellite augmented data capture. It can involve manual self-reporting by farmers using technology, such as IVRS or improve manual collection by field facilitators such as through route optimization

    Your innovation should be a verifiable data-capture system that reduces the cost and time of collection and documentation within prescribed data indicators. It must be accessible to field facilitators and farmers and in a format verifiable by 2nd / 3rd party evaluators. Solution should not require a more advanced skillset from Field Facilitators than is locally available and should take into account limited skillset / literacy levels of smallholder farmers

    Application Deadline: January 15, 2020
