  • High Technology that Revolutionized Farming

    How are we going to feed the growing population by 2050? How we are going to double our food supply and how will the farming be sustainable? All the answers involve farm technology. Farm technology creates the ability to grow plants that are disease resistant, to use the equipment that can target individual crops and strengthen the rice that can survive drought and flooding and literally save ...

  • The cloud isn`t just for rain anymore

    Precision agriculture has been a key enabling technology to achieve higher yields with lower cost and less environmental impact, while keeping the cost of food fairly stable Has global agricultural productivity increased or decreased in the last 25 years? It has, in fact, more than doubled since 1985. Next to advances in seed genetics, precision agriculture has been a key enabling ...

  • Green Innovation Fund Targets Farmers

    Reading Greenwise Business this week, we’ve learnt of a new fund available to small and medium-sized enterprises that are shown to be pioneering solutions to some of the problems currently facing the country’s farming, from water resource efficiency, through to pest control. The venture capital fund of an initial £9 million investment, called Agri-Innovation Venture Capital ...

  • The farm bill is a food bill

    As the new farm bill nears completion, spending projections have been released showing the bill’s price tag approaches a trillion dollars over 10 years. These figures have turned some heads because nearly 80 percent of the spending in the bill will go to nutrition programs. This is how the bill is supposed to work – helping farmers to grow food and helping hungry people have access to ...

  • Potential water savings associated with agricultural water efficiency improvements: a case study of California, USA

    This study analyzes the potential for water savings from irrigation efficiency improvements in California, USA. We model water savings associated with three efficiency scenarios in wet, average and dry water years. The ‘efficient irrigation technology’ scenario shifts a fraction of the crops from flood irrigation to sprinkler and drip systems; the ‘improved irrigation scheduling’ scenario uses ...

  • On combining vision-based hybrid classifiers for weeds detection in precision agriculture

    One objective in precision agriculture is to minimise the volume of herbicides that are applied to the fields through the use of site-specific weed management systems. This paper outlines an automatic computer vision system for the detection and differential spraying of Avena sterilis, a noxious weed growing in cereal crops. With such purpose we have designed a multiple hybrid decision making ...

  • Hydraulic engineering of inverted siphons in Roman age: a review

    In this work the authors wish to present a technology, less known if compared with the Roman age arcaded bridges used to cross broad and deep valleys: the inverted siphons. These structures are very complex hydraulic systems: for their good functioning, in fact, not only adequate constructing tricks were necessary, but also good theoretical knowledge, to be applied during the planning stage. In ...

  • Spatial mapping of complex turfgrass sites: site-specific management units and protocols

    Site-specific management units (SSMUs), similar in soil, plant, and irrigation requirements, are foundational to efficient management in precision agriculture. This concept is applied to management of complex turfgrass sites to improve irrigation practices. An experimental mobile unit mapped two golf fairways' turfgrass (Paspalum vaginatum SW.; ‘Salam’) in Naples, FL in summer 2006 on a 2.5 m ...

  • Dietary forage impacts on dairy slurry nitrogen availability to corn

    Precise feeding of protein and mineral supplement can maintain high levels of milk production and reduce nutrient excretion in dairy manure and losses to the environment. No information is available on the impacts of feeding different silages to dairy cattle (Bos taurus) on manure N cycling in soils. Slurry from dairy cattle fed rations containing alfalfa (Medicago sativa L.; ALF), red clover ...

  • On-farm evaluation of the improved soil nmin–based nitrogen management for summer maize in North China plain

    The improved soil Nmin–based N management is a promising approach to precision N management, which determines the optimum side-dress N rates based on N target values and measured soil nitrate N content in the root soil layer at different growth stages. A total of 148 on-farm N-response experiments, in seven key summer maize (Zea mays L.) production regions of North China Plain (NCP) from 2003 to ...

  • Paradigm of value-driven and community-based precision farming

    This paper describes a Japanese model of community-based precision farming and learning groups of farmers and companies. The community-based precision farming is a new regional farming system to get high profitability and reliability under regional and environmental constraints, promoted by wisdom farmers and technology platform, through creating both information-oriented fields and ...
