Ryan Barrett said: "It maps the soil through a combination of the electroconductivity, as well as other remote sensing methods," External link

CBC Monday, October 18, 2021 11:13:00 AM CEST

Ryan Barrett said: "The reason to do this mapping is then we can manage that field in a site-specific way," "Rather than the same fertilizer rate over the whole field, or the same tillage over the whole field, or the same seed spacing over the whole field, we can manage that variably within the field" External link

CBC Monday, October 18, 2021 11:13:00 AM CEST

Ryan Barrett said: "Normally you would space potatoes at 15 inches between plants, but in the green areas of a field, you may say, OK that's the best area of the field, we can put more plants in that area," "We can tighten that spacing up, and maybe we could go to 13 inches" External link

CBC Monday, October 18, 2021 11:13:00 AM CEST

Ryan Barrett said: "The red areas, with sandier soil, or it doesn't have as many nutrients, we need to space those out a little bit, and give those plants a little bit more room to grow, a little bit more access to nutrients," "The goal is is that we would increase the productivity of the whole field by doing this sort of site-specific management" External link

CBC Monday, October 18, 2021 11:13:00 AM CEST

Ryan Barrett said: "Soil compaction is a challenge in almost all agricultural systems where traffic on the soil, and tillage, can over time cause the layers of the soil to become a little bit more compacted," "So we're trying to detect whether a field is compacted, and then also the depth of that compaction" External link

Associate Professor explains: "As with tractors and combine harvesters, robots offer significant economies of scale. However, as the rules stand, only large farms would be able to introduce these technologies in the years to come as monitoring would be prohibitively expensive. In order for small and medium-sized farms to benefit from robots, a farmer must be able to remotely monitor several robots. This could be from their office, while tending to administrative tasks," External link

phys Thursday, October 14, 2021 5:56:00 PM CEST

Marcus Pedersen says: "Since robots must, in principle, be able to operate both day and night, on a minimal amount of energy, they're often designed to be smaller and more lightweight, and thereby run slower than tractors, for example. So, if an accident does happen, they do less damage. They are equipped with sensors and cameras that detect obstacles on the roadway. These stop them before running into anything and possibly send a message to the operator should anything go wrong," External link

phys Thursday, October 14, 2021 5:56:00 PM CEST

Marcus Pedersen explains: "It is widely recognized in agriculture that heavy machinery compacts soil and prevents, among other things, plant roots from penetrating soil, which can lower yields. Robots are far gentler on soil," External link

Benjamin Hübner explains: "In the future, sensors will not only monitor tyre pressure and temperature, but also detect the condition of the ground beneath the tyre. By monitoring the deformation of the tire, the sensor will also be able to detect the tire load," External link

Benjamin Hübner concludes: "This will further increase operational efficiencies, reduce compaction and help farmers to increase yields and improve soil health," External link

Emily Carlson : “We can seamlessly use that data to map out fields ahead of time, indicating the missions for the drone to Fly & Apply® along with areas to avoid where the crop is damaged due to high winds, hungry deer, or other issues. By leveraging that, our application services contractors Fly & Apply fungicide where it will be most effective, delivering better results to their customers” External link

Ryan Gibbs : “I’ve got an 80-acre field, but I don’t want to spray the outside rows or near the creek or by the timber where the deer eat the corn. Why spray those areas when I’m getting no use out of it? For me, I can take the drone out there and just map the field that needs to be sprayed, and I’ll only spray about 65 acres” External link

Emily Carlson : “Admittedly drone technology is still relatively new in agriculture, but we hear over and over ‘it’s the future of ag’. I beg to differ and say that drones are the present of ag if for no other reason than Rantizo’s network of over 50 contractors (and growing) across the country providing services to their farmer customers today” External link

Steve Olson says: "We plant the wheat in September and the cattle come the last of October, beginning of November. We run them until the first of March and then pull them off. Then, if it's been dry, we start watering. If it's not, as it's harvested, we no-till into it," "You can see the manure here," External link

Andy Jackson says: “We got them, started running them and absolutely love them,” “The ride, that depends. If you let an implement sit on the tire overnight, there could be flat spotting early in the morning. But other than that, they run really nice” External link

Liviu Zagan stated: “The expansion of farmland is a key objective in Holde’s development strategy. Thus, in addition to the recently completed transaction, during this period, we are engaged in a series of discussions and negotiations on the purchase of three more farms, which have a total area of over 3,000 hectares. If all the acquisition procedures are completed successfully, we will operate a total area of 13,000 hectares. However, we are cautious in the acquisition process. Whenever we consider purchasing a plot of land, we analyze many details that we know can make a difference. The most important are those related to the total cultivated area and the degree of soil compaction. Also, in addition to the acquisition of new farms, during this period, we continue investments in modernizing the existing farms in our portfolio by renewing the machinery fleet, building silos, and investing in irrigation systems. Expansion of land and modernization of existing farms are complementary activities within Holde because, in the absence of investment in technology, the quality of land can deteriorate rapidly,” External link
