Irish company MagGrow has won the
International Innovation Award at the 2020 Fieldays for its patented technology
that reduces waste from conventional pesticide spray drift by up to 70%, reduces water
usage by up to 50% and can improve crop coverage by 20%+ leading to healthier
and less diseased crops.
Farmers typically see a return on
investment in one year or less through chemical, labour and water savings. It
is easy to install and maintain and can be fitted to new or existing sprayers.
There is virtually no maintenance with no moving parts, cables, electrical
wires, or power supply required.
A company named Braskem collaborated with American and Brazilian scientists to create a type of plastic that can change its color depending on рН levels. It can be used to produce packaging for perishable foods. Soon we will see for ourselves how fresh the milk in a supermarket really is.Sources:https://bit.ly/337AQYihttps://bit.ly/2P33e5S
