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