Agriculture

View this topic in
Agriculture is the cultivation of animals, plants, fungi and other life forms for food, fiber, and other products used to sustain life. Agriculture was the key implement in the rise of sedentary human civilization, whereby farming of domesticated species created food surpluses that nurtured the development of civilization.

Crop Residue Modeling and Mapping Using Landsat, ALI, Hyperion and Airborne Remote Sensing Data

Magda S. Galloza; Melba M. Crawford; Gary C. Heathman IEEE Journal of Selected Topics in Applied Earth Observations and Remote Sensing, 2013

Various studies have demonstrated that spectral indices derived from remotely sensed data can be used to quantify crop residue cover, if adequately calibrated using in situ data. This study evaluates the capability of the Normalized Difference Tillage Index (NDTI) derived from Advance Land Imager (ALI) relative to that of Landsat Thematic Mapper (TM) and the performance of the Cellulose Absorption ...


A Game Theoretical Approach to Production Competition in a Duopoly Market

Chen Li; Ying Zhang 2006 IEEE International Conference on Service Operations and Logistics, and Informatics, 2006

In this paper, the production game between two duopolists is studied under market uncertainty. This game can be represented as a dynamic decision problem on production strategies in a duopoly market. In the game, two players simultaneously choose their strategies during each period to maximize their expected utilities. Each duopolist can observe the change of the market price of their ...

DLDR: Deep Linear Discriminative Retrieval for Cultural Event Classification from a Single Image

Rasmus Rothe; Radu Timofte; Luc Van Gool 2015 IEEE International Conference on Computer Vision Workshop (ICCVW), 2015

In this paper we tackle the classification of cultural events from a single image with a deep learning based method. We use convolutional neural networks (CNNs) with VGG-16 architecture [17], pretrained on ImageNet or the Places205 dataset for image classification, and fine-tuned on cultural events data. CNN features are robustly extracted at 4 different layers in each image. At each ...

HoSeong Cho; DaeHeon Park; Chul-Young Park; Hong-Geun Kim; Chang-Sun Shin; Yong-Yun Cho; Jang-Woo Park The 3rd International Conference on Data Mining and Intelligent Information Technology Applications, 2011

This paper proposes a system to locate workers by using fixed sensor nodes in green houses or outdoors, and to determine yield by exploiting information sensed from weight sensors on harvest carts of workers. It could plan efficient arrangement of workers by using sensed information to collect production and environmental information for each area, and could utilize as a reference ...

  • Appendix

    Energy in Nature and Society is a systematic and exhaustive analysis of all the major energy sources, storages, flows, and conversions that have shaped the evolution of the biosphere and civilization. Vaclav Smil uses fundamental unifying metrics (most notably for power density and energy intensity) to provide an integrated framework for analyzing all segments of energetics (the study of energy flows and their transformations). The book explores not only planetary energetics (such as solar radiation and geomorphic processes) and bioenergetics (photosynthesis, for example) but also human energetics (such as metabolism and thermoregulation), tracing them from hunter-gatherer and agricultural societies through modern-day industrial civilization. Included are chapters on heterotrophic conversions, traditional agriculture, preindustrial complexification, fossil fuels, fossil-fueled civilization, the energetics of food, and the implications of energetics for the environment. The book concludes with an examination of general patterns, trends, and socioeconomic considerations of energy use today, looking at correlations between energy and value, energy and the economy, energy and quality of life, and energy futures. Throughout the book, Smil chooses to emphasize the complexities and peculiarities of the real world, and the counterintuitive outcomes of many of its processes, over abstract models. Energy in Nature and Society provides a unique, comprehensive, single-volume analysis and reference source on all important energy matters, from natural to industrial energy flows, from fuels to food, from the Earth's formation to possible energy futures, and can serve as a text for courses in energy studies, global ecology, earth systems science, biology, and chemistry. Vaclav Smil is Distinguished Professor at the University of Manitoba and the author of many books, including Energy at the Crossroads (2003), The Earth's Biosphere: Evolution, Dynamics, and Change (2002), and Energies: An Illustrated Guide to the Biosphere and Civilization (1998), all of which are published by The MIT Press.

  • Traditional Farming

    While the transition from foraging to farming cannot be explained solely by energetic imperatives, the evolution of agriculture can be seen as a continuing effort to raise land productivity (to increase digestible energy yield) in order to accommodate larger populations.
