IoT-Controlled Transport Containers Keep Food at Peak Freshness RipeLocker shipping containers use IoT to help reduce loss of fresh produce and flowers. The portable, high-tech containers precisely manage atmosphere variables and help suppress pathogen growth to fight against decay during transit, so producers can reach more distant markets via ocean and truck instead of more expensive air transport.
Booming IoT Use in Agriculture Leads to Blooming Orchids Orchids need a specific climate and environment to grow, so one California nursery turned to a system capable of monitoring and quickly adapting to environmental changes. The KMC Commander system automates activities and monitors environmental stimuli to ensure Matsui’s orchids successfully bloom and grow.
IoT Reduces Food Loss Through a Smarter Supply Chain Internet of Things technologies are emerging to combat unnecessary food waste. 3D-printed shipping crates, smart packaging labels, and mobile apps are providing timely information to suppliers and consumers with the end goal of reducing food waste and conserving our natural resources.
IoT Technology Helps Farmers Meet Global Food Shortage Challenges The fast increasing world population will become even more reliant on the agriculture industry to meet the growing need for food. Artificial intelligence, machine learning, and advanced analytics are helping small-scale farmers increase yield, minimize risk, and discover efficiencies to help feed the planet's humans today and in the future.
Aquaculture Thrives as IoT Improves Production Fish farmers deploy technology to gain real-time information about water quality, fish health, and feeding patterns under murky waters. Machine learning and computer vision are transforming the process and sustainability of fish farming.
Planting Seeds of Efficiency: Robots and Drones on the Range The future of farming lies in sensors, cameras, robotics, and automation. Precision farming and Smart Ag 4.0 technologies help growers simultaneously address the increasing demand for food and the labor shortage.
The Internet of Turkeys: Smart Ag on the Rise at the Poultry Farm This November, remember to give thanks to the IoT technologies that improve turkey production. From operational management to disease detection, IoT and artificial intelligence technologies help drive efficiencies in farming.
Data-driven Agriculture 4.0: How IoT is Modernizing the Food Chain Artificial intelligence is automating farm operations as environmental sensors, digital images, and computer vision impact everything from planting to harvesting, and farmers are reaping the profits.
Coffee Industry Taps Blockchain for Smart Sourcing Management Consumers increasingly demand fair trade and sustainable products, and coffee is no exception as drinkers around the globe want greener beans. The Thank My Farmer app uses IBM’s blockchain technology for intelligent supply chain management, allowing growers, suppliers, distributors, and customers to track where their favorite morning beverage originated.
Farmers Go Whole Hog for Intelligent IoT Ag Solution PigVision uses artificial intelligence in a camera to give hog farmers real-time information about the average daily weight of pigs. Armed with real-time data, they can make more informed decisions about when to bring pigs to market and how to alter feeding schedules, improving farm processes and profits.
