WEIGHING A PIG WITHOUT SCALES
Throw those scales out – the Wuggle One allows you to accurately calculate the weight of a pig from simply taking a photograph on a mobile measuring device. In the farm, at the auction. Easy, efficient, revolutionary.
SEAWEED TO REPLACE ANTIBIOTICS?
Microalgae has many bioactive and strong antibacterial properties. Over the last 5 years Ocean Harvest Technology has tested and created formulations that can replace growth promotors and several antibiotics in the pig industry. The company is now in the process of commercialising these formulations under the name Oceanfeed Swine.
PROFIT FROM LARGE-SCALE IRRIGATION SOLUTIONS
With a swiftly growing population, there’s never been a more critical time to invest in efficient agribusiness solutions that use water, energy and labor resources wisely. Producing more with less begins with an experienced partner. Lindsay Corporation is the single-source expert for developing large –scale turnkey irrigation implementations.
ROBOTS TO REMOVE 95% OF WEEDS
Ecorobotix has created the first ever completely autonomous robotic machine for the ecological and economical weeding of row crops, meadows and intercropping cultures. Fully automatic and autonomous in energy, the robot can work for several days without any maintenance and performs weeding with an efficiency of more than 95% of weeds destroyed by combining an advanced vision system and fast-robotic arm.
A FULLY AUTOMATIC VERTICAL FARMING SYSTEM
Using just two machines the GreenCube from Logiqs B.V. is a fully automatic vertical farming system. The benches with plants are automatically moved between optimal working conditions, or centralized robots for seeding, transplanting and harvesting and optimal growing conditions for the plants.
THE ZERO ENERGY GREENHOUSE
Greenhouse horticulture can produce 10X the yield with 1/10 the water usage of open field farming. Unfortunately, it also requires 10X the energy than traditional farming. Not any more – thermally insulated transparent solar glass from Brite Solar is enabling the construction of greenhouses, which have a net energy usage of zero and in some cases is producing excess energy.
SOLVING THE SALINIZATION PROBLEM
Salinisation is the world’s most common cause of soil degradation – globally over 40% of agricultural land is threatened or affected by salinization. Thankfully Imants BV has developed an innovative system for the sustainable rehabilitation of degraded soils by mechanical desalination in combination with organic soil improvement substances.
NEW GREENHOUSE OPTIMAL FOR NORTHERN LOCATIONS
The Winterlight Greenhouse is a new greenhouse concept from Bom Group that, in combination with a new type of screen, screen fabric and special glass, yields more than 10% light during the winter period of cultivation, most optimal for Northern locations where sun angle during winter is little. The new integrated greenhouse design was developed in collaboration with Wageningen UR, Ludvig Svensson, Bayer Cropscience and Glascom Tuinbouw.
