Download Issue (PDF)

Welcome to the Tech Issue

New technologies are being developed in agriculture every day. The August 2019 issue of Noble News and Views focuses on exploring some of these technologies and their value for farmers and ranchers.

How GIS and Drones Could Help Your Ranch

GIS allows us to collect large amounts of data that offer a better picture of agricultural lands. This in turns offers opportunities for farmers and ranchers to make more-informed decisions on their operations.

Plants in the Spotlight: Measuring Shoots From Images

Noble researchers are using advanced imaging technology to study roots and increase heat and drought tolerance in winter wheat used for forage.

Understanding Soils With the Help of Sensors

Noble researchers are using sensors to gain a better understanding of the effects of tillage and cover crops on soil moisture, temperature, erosion and organic carbon.

Measuring the Hidden Half of Forages

Noble researchers are developing technologies that allow them to uncover roots and harness their ability to generate more nutrient-efficient, more resilient and more sustainable plant varieties.

More Efficient Plants Ahead, Thanks to Genomic Technologies

Genomic technologies make it possible to tap into a plant’s natural abilities to grow more efficiently in drought, nutrient-limited environments and other challenging circumstances.

Developing Technologies to Better Measure Forage

Noble researchers are testing and improving technologies that can accurately measure forage in the field to predict forage biomass and quality.

Animal Tech That Could Help You Make Decisions on the Ranch

Precision livestock technologies collect, analyze and interpret a wide range of metrics on animals for the purpose of research, production, management or well-being.
