Robot Hives to Keep Bees Buzzing
More than 70 percent of crops, including almost all fruits, vegetables, oilseeds, spices, coffee and cocoa are dependent on pollinators such as bees. They function as normal hives, but apiaries built at a kibbutz in Israel’s Galilee are decked out with high-tech artificial intelligence systems set to ensure longevity for these vital pollinators. The hives feature a multi-purpose robot that does everything from monitor the bees to adjust the habitat and provide them with care. The startup hopes to be producing its own honey for the first time — the “first honey in the world made with artificial intelligence” https://israeltrade.org.au/2022/05/19/robot-hives-in-israel-kibbutz-hope-to-keep-bees-buzzing/

The Art of Blasting Weeds
Technology enabling farmers to blast weeds with pinpoint lasers  could change agriculture, akin to the advent of the gin, tractor, or combine.Computer artificial intelligence is patterned after human vision through 20 cameras that target, identify and track weeds. The trained artificial intelligence  is able to focus on a given crop, identify it and then direct eight lasers on other vegetation in the field including volunteer crops and weeds. In real time, while the vehicle moves, the image processing and laser firing all happen simultaneously  allowing the autonomous LaserWeeder to obliterate weeds while moving  1-2 mph.

Transforming Farming & Agribusiness
Israel has cultivated a legacy of agricultural innovation in the face of scarcity for many years. With advanced research, entrepreneurial farmers and technologists, and government support, the country has produced an Agritech sector that today numbers more than 500 globally oriented companies excelling in many different areas. Interest in technologies for agriculture will continue as farm management adopts data-driven agronomy. Digital imaging, sensors, and artificial intelligence platforms are set to change farming from precision to ‘predictive’ agriculture. From predictive agriculture to crop insurance, these Israeli firms are bringing technological innovation to modernize the agriculture industry. Discover their innovative solutions: https://israeltrad

Innovating Towards a Better Planet
Israel is ranked first in the world for precision Agriculture. The historical innovation of Israeli water-tech has facilitated the development of Israel’s strength in precision Agriculture. Israel’s pre-existing strength in ICT, data mining and software, together with expertise in the fields of drones and satellites, enable the adaptation of existing technologies into innovative agricultural solutions such a soil mapping, smart irrigation and fertigation systems, and satellites for precision agriculture. Most importantly, precision agriculture increases agricultural productivity while optimizing farm management and the efficient use of water, pesticides, nutrients and other inputs. For the full article and list of companies:
