Top Three Ways Blockchain Is Killing It in Agribusiness

This is another post about how blockchain will revolutionize an industry. But if you’re bored of reading about hypotheticals, stay on this page. We’re going to look at how blockchain in agribusiness is actually making a positive impact already with real, live use cases and companies making cost-savings and improving efficiencies now.

Evaluation of Altitude Sensors for a Crop Spraying Drone

Authors: Matheus Hentschke, Edison Pignaton de Freitas, Carlos Henrique Hennig and Igor Caike Girardi da Veiga

Journal: Drones 2018, 2(3), 25

Publisher: MDPI

This work aims to study and compare different range finders applied to altitude sensing on a rotating wings UAV. The specific application is the altitude maintenance for the fluid deployment valve aperture control in an unmanned pulverization aircraft used in precision agriculture. The influence of a variety of parameters are analyzed, including the tolerance for crop inconsistencies, density variations and intrinsic factors to the process, such as the pulverization fluid interference in the sensor’s readings, as well as their vulnerability to harsh conditions of the operation environment. Filtering and data extraction techniques were applied and analyzed in order to enhance the measurement reliability. As a result, a wide study was performed, enabling better decision making about choosing the most appropriate sensor for each situation under analysis. The performed data analysis was able to provide a reliable baseline to compare the sensors. With a baseline set, it was possible to counterweight the sensors errors and other factors such as the MSE for each environment to provide a summarized score of the sensors. The sensors which provided the best performance in the used metrics and tested environment were Lightware SF11-C and LeddarTech M16.

As climate change reshapes agriculture, international trade will be increasingly important to feeding the world

With climate change poised to alter significantly the ability of many world regions to produce food, it is expected that international trade in agricultural products will have an increasingly important contribution to feeding the planet and responding to climate-related hunger flare-ups, says a new report by the UN's Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO).

Evolution of Integrated Open Aquaculture Systems in Hungary: Results from a Case Study

Authors: József Popp, László Váradi, Emese Békefi, András Péteri, Gergő Gyalog, Zoltán Lakner and Judit Oláh

Journal: Sustainability 2018, 10(1), 177

Publisher: MDPI

This article presents the history of integrated farming in aquaculture through a Hungarian case study. The development of Hungarian integrated aquaculture is aligned with global trends. In the previous millennium, the utilization of the nutrients introduced into the system was the main aspect of the integration. In Hungary, technologies that integrated fish production with growing crops and animal husbandry appeared, including for example: large-scale fish-cum-rice production; fish-cum-duck production; and integrated pig-fish farming which were introduced in the second half of the 20th century. Today, the emphasis is on integrating the use of the kind of feed where the main goal is to minimize nutrient loads in the surrounding natural ecosystems and to maximize the utilization of the unit’s water resources. The various modern integrated freshwater aquaculture systems, such as intensive fish production combined with wetland, recirculation aquaculture system and multi-functional aquaculture, have proved their viability. However, the future opportunities for these systems have not always been properly recognized and acknowledged when the future of European aquaculture is discussed.

EU Call for Proposals: Integrated approaches to food safety controls across the food chain

Proposals should look at the development of an integrated approach for detecting, assessing and mitigating food safety risks from biological and chemical hazards (whether emerging or not) through the entire food chain/s (from primary production to consumers) and include common risks such as environmental contamination, process contamination, contamination through packaging and misuse or adulteration. They should tackle specific sector/s while taking into account the diversity of the supply chains within sector(s). The research activities should gather relevant data to assess risks and deliver practical solutions (technology and management related) in order to control those hazards and their combinations at specific stages of the food chain where interventions can deliver the most efficient and greatest possible impact on public health. Activities will develop detection and monitoring tools that will allow for the data collection, integration, validation and analysis.

Dateline for submission: 23 January 2019 17:00:00 (Brussels time)
