In this issue of Maximum Yield, we explore the changing face of agriculture and its emerging technology. Cory Hughes provides us with a 10,000-foot view of some of the new advancements in traditional agriculture, including automated agriculture, artificial intelligence, and the rise of agbots. Meanwhile, Tim Jennings takes us a little closer with insight on amazing technology like micro drone pollinators, also known as RoboBees. These smart little robots are the result of collaboration by some seriously smart propellerheads who are looking way into agriculture’s future. Both features are worth a read.
Of course, not everybody is a techie. For many, the pursuit of growing still means getting their hands dirty in some soil or maintaining an indoor hydro system. We’ve got those individuals covered too with Sara Elliott’s article on the delightfully simple but effective herb spiral and Frank Rauscher’s comparison between deep water and NTF systems.
No matter where you live, the city or country, the team here at Maximum Yield wishes you a happy new year and success in all your growing pursuits.
