Liquid Robotics launches swarm of ocean-patrolling robots

Liquid Robotics launches swarm of ocean-patrolling robots | Model as a Service | Scoop.it

Joe Rizzi first heard the underwater songs of humpback whales a decade ago while scuba diving near Hawaii. Enthralled, he decided to pipe their migration music into his beachfront home.Here's the difference between Joe Rizzi and your average souvenir seeker: He's a rich venture capitalist. Rizzi's quest to capture the whalesong started with a glass pickle jar, a hydrophone and a kayak. It ends with Liquid Robotics, a Sunnyvale, Calif., company with $22 million from investors, 80 employees and customers like BP Oil and the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration.

 

Liquid Robotics operates a fleet of wave-propelled, solar-powered ocean robots. Designed to capture Rizzi's elusive music, they have the potential to do much more: predict tsunamis, track fish, snuff out offshore oil leaks and patrol waters for national security threats. They use no fuel, produce no emissions and can travel up to 2,000 miles using wave power alone.

Plant pest and disease forecasting for early warning in crop protection

Plant pest and disease forecasting for early warning in crop protection | Model as a Service | Scoop.it

News and Events - Bioforsk:

Climate factors play a major role in determining the impact of several pests and diseases on rice crop yields. Based on this rationale, the ClimaRice II project has identified a potential for further use of existing weather data as input to a computerised system for plant pest and disease.

 

A network of 224 Automatic Weather Stations (AWS) throughout Tamil Nadu state will collect the data which will be used as input to a weather forecasting model. Initially, the focus will be on paddy blast disease, caused by the fungal pathogen Magnaporthe grisea, and insect pest paddy leaf mite Oligonychus oryzae. The assumption is that farmers access to pest and disease warnings, either directly by mobile internet/SMS, or through advisory service officers, enables improved targeting of crop protection measures which both can give increased crop yield and quality, as well as reduced pesticide use/or timely use and less production costs to farmers.

Helping Africa researchers improve crops, sustainability

Helping Africa researchers improve crops, sustainability | Model as a Service | Scoop.it

WSU News: Decision-support systems, such as those available through WSU’s AgWeatherNet, help agricultural professionals decide when to use frost control, apply pest control measures and make other decisions critical to the success of their crops.

The workshops resulted in a textbook, "Improving Soil Fertility Recommendations in Africa using the Decision Support System for Agrotechnology Transfer (DSSAT),” recently published by Springer. The book offers examples of how decision-support systems were applied in simulation to various agricultural management and conservation practices.

Washington State University SU agrometeorologist Gerrit Hoogenboom helped lead a series of workshops in Tanzania, Ghana and Kenya to transfer decision-support system technologies to researchers in African nations.

Agro-Meteorology in India

Agro-Meteorology in India | Model as a Service | Scoop.it
Agro-Meteorology. WOTR is partnered by the India Meteorological Department (IMD) in its Agro-Meterology efforts. The IMD guides WOTR in weather station installations, weather predictions as well as in providing agro advisories.

 

Automated Weather Stations were installed in villages. Localized Met-advisories and Agri-met advisories are in demand and they can be very much useful in giving timely information to farmers so that they can plan their agricultural activities accordingly.
