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.
The world's oceans are polluted and overfished, and wild seafood populations are dwindling -- but luckily, there's a revolutionary new seafood farming technique on the rise that might ensure we never run out of shrimp.
Dubbed the "CRISPR Revolution," scientific advances in gene editing have huge potential that many experts think could help fortify our food system and feed an increasing global population that's threatened by climate change.
