Adopting practices like mindfulness can be a great way to reduce stress and take back control of one's life.
Many farmers are at the breaking point, but innovation to help needs to arrive on their terms.
Even the most experienced of leaders can struggle when it comes to managing several different priorities.
Addressing this need requires a critical shift from thinking of agtech as a product to thinking of it as a service.
Precision agriculture — the use of sensors and AI to pinpoint what resources are needed where — has quickly gone from sci-fi to reality as farmers contend with several challenges.
Curiosity alone isn’t everything. It exists on a spectrum with coachability, and there’s a sweet spot somewhere in the middle.
Harnessing the power of optimism, even when you have to squeeze the last drops of it out of people, can be a powerful tool for fighting distraction and achieving alignment.
Semios is a scalable, data analytics platform for growers of tree fruit and tree nut crops that helps predict, identify, and prevent pest and disease pressure. The Semios analytics engine draws on multiple sources of data and information including a robust, wireless network of in-canopy sensors on every customer farm measuring climate, soil and insect pest activity. Leveraging a network of 2 million sensors, providing updates every 10 minutes, we apply big data analytics and machine learning to reduce and mitigate crop risks for growers. Semios improves sustainability by promoting reduced dependency on pesticides and crop management inputs while helping to increase the value of harvests through reduced loss and increased quality.
