From the Green Revolution to present, agricultural innovations have allowed for the rapid evolution of food production internationally. Along with innovation comes new terminology to articulate what’s taking place along the way. There’s precision agriculture, which has denoted the last few decades of tech’s integrations with farming. And then there’s more recent phrases like smart farming and digital farming. How do these terms fit together, and which apply to your operation practices?

Accurate classification is the key to quality assurance and integral to success in commercial-scale produce markets. Apart from filtering out obvious disease, size is a primary classifier for selling fruit in graded classes. When it comes to sizing fruits like apples and peaches, the tried and true methods are still a big part of the production process. Contemporary tech solutions compliment the human touch while speeding up the processing element of harvest. Having the right tools in your toolkit improves your competitive advantage in the highly time-sensitive world of perishable goods.

This piece is a part of our ongoing agtech feature series, highlighting bright innovations impacting the agricultural sector.

Soft Robotics’ gripper technology offers a non-traditional robotic approach to picking up objects with tact and versatility, closing a major use case gap for automation in manufacturing. By creating an end-of-arm-tool (EOAT) that can reliably pick and place objects without damage or chaos, high-speed automation can now be a viable replacement to human workers’ movements.
