Building three-dimensional point clouds from high-resolution photos taken from unmanned aerial vehicles or drones may soon help plant breeders and agronomists save time and money compared with measuring crops manually.
Purdue University has developed technology that researchers say could be used by farmers in the future to more accurately sense subsurface moisture by measuring the reflections from communication satellite signals. Read moreRead More »
The latest developments include tools that can specifically mimic the natural process of mutation, leading to improved plant characteristics, such as resistance to pests and pathogens, or superior nutritional value. Europe cannot afford to miss out on this opportunity to develop new varieties more quickly, more efficiently, and address the[…]Read More »
