How Cloud-Based Irrigation is Already Showing Higher Crop Yield In countries around the world, farmers are doing their very best to work with what they have so they can continue to feed growing populations. In India, a new cloud technology has allowed one grower to cut water use by 80%, all while doubling yields. This
How One Large Chinese Crop Experiment Yielded $12.2 Billion in Profits China’s population is booming, and growers there are looking into the best ways to continue to provide enough food in the future. As a result, a decade-long experiment on ways to make agriculture more sustainable using evidence-based management techniques proved rather valuable. The experimental
What Does the Future of Crop Yield Prediction Hold? In the Midwestern corn belt, farmers are getting ready for the sowing season. Each and every year, farmers rely on a variety of information to help them plan their crops and their budgets, and of these, yield prediction is one of the most important. A new
Using Soil Surface and Linear Gradient Irrigation Methods to Provide Similar Corn Yield with Less Water Corn is a vital crop in the US and other parts of the world. Much of the corn that goes to market makes its way into the hands of consumers, and some is grown specifically to feed livestock. As
Proper irrigation is a common concern among farmers around the world. Choosing the right irrigation methods and soil amendments may seem like a daunting task. Fortunately, with a revolutionary copolymer system that works with all of today’s existing irrigation systems, it is possible to improve the relationship between crops and the water available to them.
