At Musgrave Research Farm researchers are upping the agriculture game by evaluating plant health from the day the plants come out of the ground. A massive drone and a rover are collecting data, and saving money and a whole lot of time.
Cornell and University of Illinois researchers have engineered plants capable of making proteins not native to the plant itself, which opens the door for cheaply making proteins for industrial and medical uses.
In a new collaboration, students from Dairy Herd Management teamed up with students in Topics in Cloud Computing to learn how to work together to develop the kinds of digital tools that could reshape farming.
Projects ranging from a soil-swimming robot that can sense conditions in the root zone in real time to computational models that can predict produce spoilage received seed funds from the Cornell Initiative for Digital Agriculture’s new Research Innovation Fund.
