  • The Future of Fruit Farming: MD2 Pineapple

    By Jenny Hoo

    Published 6 days ago

    The questions is, why is this MD2 pineapple so popular?Pineapple is known to contain highest amount of vitamin C among all various types of fruits... This means that in the long term, even though under usual circumstances normal pineapple breed would bear fruit in 6-8 months, by taking 16 months of MD2 pineapple production cycle in count, MD2 would bear 4 fruits in 16 months compared to 2 for normal pineapple breed... Valleser in his paper titled “Planting Density Influenced the Fruit Mass and Yield of ‘Sensuous’ Pineapple”, he compared the effects of planting density on the fruit mass and the yields of the fruit in different densities... Similarly, for MD2 pineapple, planting densities above 70,000 plants per hectare produces highest yields but on average, yields were 62,594 plants per hectare and the fruit weights between 1... Meanwhile, for MD2 variety, the major producer is Costa Rica and Brazil for fresh pineapple, while Philippines carries both fresh fruit and canned fruit for export and Thailand and Indonesia produces MD2 pineapple in can for export as well[5]...

    Why magnesium is important for grape?

    By Darren Chan

    Published 1 years, 3 months ago

    Magnesium’s effect is essential for grape,it can be called “a large number of elements” for grapes,and the demand is simliar to phosphorus. Even the magnesium content of grape leaves is higher than that of phosphorus. It is directly involved in physiological and biochemical processes such as photosynthesis and enzyme activation of grapes,and is one of the mineral elements necessary for normal growth and development of grapes and improvement of fruit quality. Chlorophyll synthesis and photosynthesisMagnesium accounts for 2... The lack of magnesium in grape plants directly leads to the grape fruit being smaller,the sugar content is low,the berry color is poor,the maturity period is delayed,and the yield is reduced...

    Why Hemp Isn’t Going to Save the US Farmer (But How It Could)

    By The Crossover

    Published 1 month ago

    In late 2018, a new farm bill was passed that legalized the production of hemp as an agricultural commodity while also removing it from the list of “controlled substances”. The Gold Rush of the modern farming era was on. The farming industry was buzzing with new information on how to grow and market this miracle plant. Hemp farming was going to not only save the modern row crop farmer but also make him wealthy in the process...

    UAV-Based Remote Sensing Technique to Detect Citrus Canker Disease Utilizing Hyperspectral Imaging and Machine Learning

    Authors: Jaafar Abdulridha, Ozgur Batuman and Yiannis Ampatzidis

    Journal: Remote Sens. 2019, 11(11), 1373;

    Publisher: MDPI

    A remote sensing technique was developed to detect citrus canker in laboratory conditions and was verified in the grove by utilizing an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV). In the laboratory, a hyperspectral (400–1000 nm) imaging system was utilized for the detection of citrus canker in several disease development stages (i.e., asymptomatic, early, and late symptoms) on Sugar Belle leaves and immature (green) fruit by using two classification methods: (i) radial basis function (RBF) and (ii) K nearest neighbor (KNN). The same imaging system mounted on an UAV was used to detect citrus canker on tree canopies in the orchard. The overall classification accuracy of the RBF was higher (94%, 96%, and 100%) than the KNN method (94%, 95%, and 96%) for detecting canker in leaves. Among the 31 studied vegetation indices, the water index (WI) and the Modified Chlorophyll Absorption in Reflectance Index (ARI and TCARI 1) more accurately detected canker in laboratory and in orchard conditions, respectively. Immature fruit was not a reliable tissue for early detection of canker. However, the proposed technique successfully distinguished the late stage canker-infected fruit with 92% classification accuracy. The UAV-based technique achieved 100% classification accuracy for identifying healthy and canker-infected trees

    Plant Disease Diagnosis for Smart Phone Applications with Extensible Set of Diseases

    Author: Nikos Petrellis

    Journal Title: Applied Sciences

    ISSN: 2076-3417 (Print)

    Publisher: MDPI AG

    A plant disease diagnosis method that can be implemented with the resources of a mobile phone application, that does not have to be connected to a remote server, is presented and evaluated on citrus diseases. It can be used both by amateur gardeners and by professional agriculturists for early detection of diseases. The features used are extracted from photographs of plant parts like leaves or fruits and include the color, the relative area and the number of the lesion spots. These classification features, along with additional information like weather metadata, form disease signatures that can be easily defined by the end user (e.g., an agronomist). These signatures are based on the statistical processing of a small number of representative training photographs. The extracted features of a test photograph are compared against the disease signatures in order to select the most likely disease. An important advantage of the proposed approach is that the diagnosis does not depend on the orientation, the scale or the resolution of the photograph. The experiments have been conducted under several light exposure conditions. The accuracy was experimentally measured between 70% and 99%. An acceptable accuracy higher than 90% can be achieved in most of the cases since the lesion spots can recognized interactively with high precision.

    Stronger policy support needed to reap the benefits of growing trees near crops

    Agroforestry is a term used for land-use systems and technologies where woody perennials - trees, shrubs, palms, bamboos and such like - are deliberately used in the same plots as agricultural crops or livestock in a way that builds and channels ecological synergies. The approach is gaining in interest due to its ability to sequester carbon and mitigate climate change along with broadening the social, economic and environmental sustainability of rural development.

    FAO promotes the potential multiple roles of agroforestry, Semedo said, citing several examples including projects undertaken in lands facing outmigration in Nepal; to boost soil health and water conservation in the drought-prone regions of Guatemala and Honduras; and to introduce fruit trees in timber plantations in the Kyrgyz Republic.

    Identification of Citrus Trees from Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Imagery Using Convolutional Neural Networks

    Authors: Ovidiu, John Cherbini, Robert Johnson, Andy Lyons and Maggi Kelly

    Journal: Drones 2018, 2(4), 39

    Publisher: MDPI

    Remote sensing is important to precision agriculture and the spatial resolution provided by Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) is revolutionizing precision agriculture workflows for measurement crop condition and yields over the growing season, for identifying and monitoring weeds and other applications. Monitoring of individual trees for growth, fruit production and pest and disease occurrence remains a high research priority and the delineation of each tree using automated means as an alternative to manual delineation would be useful for long-term farm management. In this paper, we detected citrus and other crop trees from UAV images using a simple convolutional neural network (CNN) algorithm, followed by a classification refinement using superpixels derived from a Simple Linear Iterative Clustering (SLIC) algorithm. The workflow performed well in a relatively complex agricultural environment (multiple targets, multiple size trees and ages, etc.) achieving high accuracy (overall accuracy = 96.24%, Precision (positive predictive value) = 94.59%, Recall (sensitivity) = 97.94%). To our knowledge, this is the first time a CNN has been used with UAV multi-spectral imagery to focus on citrus trees. More of these individual cases are needed to develop standard automated workflows to help agricultural managers better incorporate large volumes of high resolution UAV imagery into agricultural management operations.
