Smart Farming: technology for agriculture

2020-06-17T01:17:59+00:00By |

Technology for agriculture is changing how we produce food and we know about plants and animals. This short TV program describes innovations in both plant and animal science that are leading to deeper understanding of the health of both plants and animals. Real-time sensors monitor how, in this case tomatoes and cows, are responding [...]

Wearable electronics reveal the secret lives of plants

2020-06-16T19:55:54+00:00By |

Faint bioelectrical signals emitted by plants can be used to monitor their needs thanks to EU-funded researchers developing novel biosensors. Plants may appear to do nothing, but in fact they are actively sensing and responding to a wide range of environmental stimuli such as light levels, temperature, gas concentrations, soil chemistry and humidity, the [...]

par Agroscope Conthey Agroscope received the support of the Commission for Technology and Innovation CTI for the project on the electrophysiology of greenhouse plants together with three partner organizations. The basis for this was a promising preliminary study.  Cédric Camps of the group “greenhouse cultures” will carry out the study together with the Swiss startup Vivent , which produces [...]

UNITED STATES ARMY WANTS TO CREATE SPY-PLANT

2020-06-17T01:16:50+00:00By |

Alexandra Brutsch The Pentagon is seeking to develop genetically modified plants that can identify threats. A French-speaking Swiss start-up is trying to join the project. Easier to deploy than an armada of agents, more discreet than a police dog and more aesthetic than a portal of detection, the green plant could become a new key [...]
