    1-Methylcyclopropene(1-MCP) Apples Fresh-Keeping Agent

    By Darren Chan

    Updated Jun 17 

    1-MCP is a product widely used in apples around the world to improve eating quality and storability. Ripening of the fruit is initiated by ethylene, and in some cases this is also true. To a certain extent, the ripening process's speed is regulated by its concentration in the fruit. Fruits generally soften, and apples soften more rapidly when the ethylene content is high, but ethylene is also volatile in the fruit needed to stimulate the formation of flavor-producing substances... Vegetables: tomatoes, lettuce, celery, kale, potatoes, carrots, daylily, onions, toon, beans, broad beans, peas, broccoli, asparagus, coriander, cucumber, onions, leeks, garlic sprouts, (green, red) peppers, North Korea Thistle, cowpea, sweet corn, enoki mushroom, etc...

    The Benefits of Farm Flight Stand Counts

    By Sam Baker

    Published Feb 21, 2020 

    Agriculture is one of the most competitive markets in the world, and in competitive markets every decision matters. Every season, farmers are faced with choices that can make or break their harvest, and oftentimes there is not much data available to help in the decision making process. Farm Flight’s goal is to help farmers mitigate risk when making these crucial decisions with the use of machine learning and drone technology. This technology is now making information that was never accessible, available to everyone... Using our machine learning technology, we were able to count over three hundred thousand heads of Iceberg Lettuce in less than fifteen minutes...

    Dealing with Wild Weather

    By John Moody

    Published Jun 12, 2018 

    For much of the country, it has been a wild spring. For some, it has been a no spring. In my area we had an unseasonably long, late winter. Snow fell in the 3rd week of April... For instance, a fair bit of our bed space that was set aside for field lettuces, carrots, and similar crops is instead going into sweet potatoes, melons, or other warm season options...

    "A Purdue University study shows that the bacteria Listeria monocytogenes can live inside the tissue of romaine lettuce, suggesting that conventional post-harvest sanitization practices might not be sufficient to kill the potentially lethal pathogen."

    AgriTech Accelerator program - Increased efficiency in Food production value chain through New Technologies

    The program targets only science and technology-backed startups (pre-seed, seed, and growth stage) and budding entrepreneurs (Idea Stage). Individuals, teams and registered entities (CSO/NGO, LLC, LTD, etc.) both from Armenia and around the world are eligible to apply if they offer solutions to tackle the following challenges in the agricultural sector:

    VERTICAL AND URBAN FARMING - 95 percent less water used, less fertilizer and nutritional supplements, and no

    pesticides, while boosting productivity. E.G. San Francisco-based Plenty’s field-scale indoor farms combine

    agriculture and crop science with machine learning, IoT, big data, and climate-control technology, enabling it to grow

    healthy food while minimizing water and energy usage. Governments have also initiated initiatives around this

    technology.

    GENETIC MODIFICATION AND CULTURED MEATS - Clustered, regularly interspaced, short palindromic repeat

    (CRISPR) technology is an important new approach to genome editing that allows greater selectivity and reduces the

    element of chance. The technique not only can create breeds with improved yields and resistance to adverse

    conditions, but can also be used to propagate crops with essential vitamins, nutrients, and minerals. CRISPR Is

    facilitating the generation of engineered animal food products. E.g. MosaMeat, a Netherlands based company, is

    among the handful of startups using the technology.

    APPLYING 3D PRINTING TECHNOLOGY TO FOOD - 3D printing, which is becoming important in manufacturing

    industries, is now being applied to food production. 3D printing (also known as additive manufacturing) is a process

    whereby layers of material are formed to create objects—and in this case, familiar dishes. Experts believe printers

    using hydrocolloids (substances that form gels with water) could be used to replace the base ingredients of foods

    with renewables like algae, duckweed, and grass.

    Application Deadline: May 23, 2020
