In 20 years there will be 9.6 billion people to feed, and not enough food. Carnegie Mellon University’s FarmView is tackling this problem through a team effort of researchers and robots that will increase crop yields with fewer resources by controlling and measuring the environment then analyzing the data, to provide solutions to farmers across the globe.

yield / Maturity Estimation

Timing_harvests.jpg

Timing harvests is a highly laborious and technical task that requires significant experience. In the cannabis industry, mistimed harvests result in an average 3.5% to 5.5% loss in THC content, which can result in more than a 20% loss in revenue. Cannabis cultivators spend an average of 30% of their annual labor inspecting their crop trying to decide when they should harvest. Despite all this time and labor spent, they tend to sample only 10% of their flower to make those decisions. Mistiming harvests also tends to result in lower THC percentages, which is the primary driving metric in customer purchase decisions, determines pricing, and directly effects growers' revenue.
