Ghana: Drones for Precision Agriculture.

Agric Innovate
Watch the use of drones for precision agriculture and discover how Drone could benefit farmers in Africa. CLICK HERE TO WATCH THE VIDEO Joshua AYINBORA, a young farmer from Ghana, for a field demonstration on the use of drones. Joshua got curious about drones and asked his friend who owns a drone to fly it over his farm. When the images were analysed, it was realised that part of his pineapple field had a fungal attack. And detecting it at an early stage saved Joshua a lot of money. He is convinced that the use of drones can benefit him in the long run. He plans to use drones to manage his farm when he up-scales.

Kenya has unveiled Africa’s largest wind power plant, a project aimed at reducing electricity costs and dependence on fossil fuels and moving the nation to meet its ambitious goal of 100% green energy next year. The sprawling wind farm of 365 turbines on the shores of Lake Turkana in northern Kenya was designed to boost the nation’s electricity supply by 13 percent, giving more Kenyans access at a lower cost, President Uhuru Kenyatta said at its launch. Kenya has made great strides in renewable energy in recent years and is considered to one of the few African nations making progress toward clean power. About 70 percent of the nation’s electricity comes from renewable sources such as hydropower and geothermal - more than three times the global average. But one in fou

A new device was developed by group of Scientists at the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology in Saudi Arabia that can purify water using solar power. Previously, attempts have been made to merge solar power and clean water , but this device developed is a new three stage system to radically enhance efficiency The need to combine water purification through clean means is a growing one, giving the rise in man-made climate change. Water scarcity is increasing throughout a variety of places on the planet, from South Africa to India. "The water-energy nexus is one of the main issues threatening sustainable global development," says Wenbin Wang, a Ph.D. student at the University's Water Desalination and Reuse Center, in a press statement.

Recently, the University of Nigeria, Nsukka, the first indigenous university in the country, which is located in South East Nigeria, achieved a milestone by being the first university in the country to launch an organic waste power plant that will generate steady electricity for the university. The plant is a 100 kilo-volt-ampere (kVA) refuse-derived fuel (RDF) gasification plant designed to power the whole campus and nearby communities. The project, which was initiated by the former vice chancellor of the institution, Prof Chinedu Nebo, when he was the minister of power four years ago, was completed and inaugurated by Prof Benjamin Ozumba, the present vice chancellor. “I am happy that under my watch the university has witnessed innovation and transfo

You may not have heard of Bühler, but the Swiss-born, global process engineering business, touches your life in more ways than you might realize. One billion people travel in vehicles manufactured with parts produced with Bühler machinery, and multiple eyeglasses, smartphones, newspapers and magazine brands depend on Bühler process technologies. And when it comes to food, the numbers are even more staggering: over a quarter of the world population eat food each day that’s been through Bühler equipment in some shape or form. And in some food segments, the market share is even higher with 65% of the world’s grain processed through Bühler products. “It’s absolutely crazy because most people haven’t heard of us, and that’s partly because we’re privately-owned,” says Stuart Bashford

Every week there seems to be news of a new farm robotics startup getting launched or an “alternative protein” company raising a seven, eight, or nine-figure funding round. But it’s not enough and the agrifood industry needs more qualified entrepreneurs to enter the space, according to a new initiative from the European Union (EU) that wants to propel more entrepreneurs and innovators into the sector. Its inaugural “pre-accelerator” agrifood tech program will offer entrepreneurs support at the earliest stages of development. “Food tech is a really trendy sector to develop new business ideas, [but] there is really a lack of trained entrepreneurs that are entering the entrepreneurship journey in the food space. Many more in Europe are starting in the IT world and in health,” said Benoi
