Students in fields ranging from computer science and engineering to business, agriculture and animal science convened at the second Digital Agriculture Hackathon, Feb. 28-March 1, with a shared purpose: to combine their disparate skills to brainstorm ways to make the world a better place.
Students and faculty from the world’s five leading agricultural universities, including Cornell, will spend three days learning and brainstorming at the Cornell Initiative for Digital Agriculture’s second annual hackathon, Feb. 28-March 1.
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.
