  • MARVIN™ technology saves agriculture & horticulture time and money

    Four hundred thousand seedlings, nearly half of what a plant grower of, say, young tomato plants, produces in one season; this is the amount that sorting machines with the MARVIN technology can process in a single day. They rapidly make 3D models of the plants and accurately evaluate their size and features in milliseconds. “The information can be automatically recorded in a database and ...

  • How Technology is shaping our future

    By the year 2030, the humanoid robots tasked with performing our domestic chores will have intelligence surpassing our own. Companies have already designed robots to vacuum our floors and mow our lawns with products such as the Roomba and Robomow. Soon these companies will be competing with fully automated, all-inclusive robots capable of the physical, as well as cognitive tasks necessary to ...

  • Healthy soil is essential for a biobased & circular economy

    The soil is the ground beneath our feet and the growth place for biomass. For a biobased & circular economy it is crucial to preserve this ‘pantry’ storage function of the soil. This is why Wageningen University & Research is performing dedicated research into various aspects of the soil, such as nutrients and organic material, smarter cultivation systems of a larger diversity ...
