A Dutch company is developing a floating dairy farm, which they hope to use as a proof-of-concept for future agricultural systems. The farm will use automated cleaning and milking robots, while recycling waste into fertilizer.
Researchers have shown how space farming may be possible. By encouraging plants to excrete a certain hormone, they’ve demonstrated that crops can thrive despite challenging conditions, such as low-nutrient soil and microgravity.
A Swiss company called ecoRobotix recently unveiled its contribution to automated agriculture -- a robotic weed-killing machine, that may reshape the way we approach agriculture by used microdoses of herbicides
The beta version of Stardew Valley's multiplayer mode is available to play on PC, provided that Steam users have opted to allow beta modes. The game is also available on Mac, Linux, PS4, Xbox One, and Switch.
TerraSentia is a four-wheeled farm robot that boasts a variety of sensors that can monitor and transmit crop data in real time. It won’t take full autonomy over a farm but is designed to serve as a little cog in a bigger machine.
Indigo Agriculture has a plan is to pump plants with a bunch of beneficial microbes to make the crops grow faster, stronger, and more productively. It’s a long shot, but it could give farmers access to crops that not only grow better in…
Scientists recently published a paper detailing a new "speed breeding" technique that may revolutionize the way we grow crops and accelerate the rate at which we can develop hardier, healthier, and more versatile plants in the face of…
From planting to tending and harvesting, no human stepped foot on the acre and a half barley farm in rural England. The manual labor in the project, called Hands Free Hectare, was done entirely by robot farmers.
According to present estimates, a global food shortage crisis could occur by the year 2050. Scientists at Carnegie Mellon are using drones, robots and AI to revolutionize farming before we hit that point.
