UF scientists use AI technology to breed better-tasting strawberries

A tastier strawberry may come from a computer. Consumer panels are the tried-and-true method for UF researchers to gauge whether new fruit varieties taste good enough to keep developing them for the market. But, in the evolving world… Read More

UF researchers use AI datasets to track feral pigs, minimize disease risk

Feral pigs cost the agriculture industry at least $1.5 billion in damage, disease and control costs around the United States annually, running rampant on large swaths of grazing lands. The swine root in soil and eat most everything… Read More

Florida-grown coffee? How UF scientists are using AI to serve up the possibilities

Most of the world’s coffee is grown in tropical regions. However, a changing climate could allow coffee to grow farther north — for example, in Florida. To understand how that might work, scientists with the University of Florida… Read More

UF researchers to use AI to predict how hurricanes spread invasive plants

Scientists project hurricane intensity and frequency will increase with climate change. That leads researchers to want to better predict how storms will disperse and establish nonnative plant invaders. Knowing where invasive plants spread will always be useful. But… Read More

Water Wednesday Recap: Applications for Artificial Intelligence in Precision Agriculture

Water Wednesdays in February have focused on Precision Agriculture. As the last talk of the month, we invited Dr. Yiannis Ampatzidis to talk about the applications of artificial intelligence and precision agriculture. Probably we all have heard of… Read More

Preview: Applications of AI in Precision Agriculture

Technological advances in computer vision, mechatronics, artificial intelligence and machine learning have enabled the development and implementation of remote sensing technologies for plant, weed, pest, and disease identification and management. They provide a unique opportunity for the development… Read More

UF scientists look to space to help ranchers on Earth

Houston, we’re fixing a problem. Besides serving as a place for cattle to live, eat and sleep, Florida’s ranchlands also are often large, complex ecosystems that provide food and habitat for wildlife and water to replenish the Floridan… Read More

UF/IFAS boosts AI research to help solve perplexing issues

Among them: ensuring crops taste good and resist diseases with the least environmental impact. UF/IFAS scientists are using AI to help solve chronic diseases, working with UF Health researchers. They’re also using drones to find diseased plants in… Read More

UF/IFAS scientists to develop methodology for measuring crop evapotranspiration using sensors, drones, artificial intelligence

HOMESTEAD, Fla. – The sight of sprinklers running on a rainy day is not uncommon in Florida. The same goes for seeing landscapes scorched by the sun during one of Florida’s sweltering days when irrigation schedules were left… Read More
