Innovation will continue to propel our industry forward. This starts with improved genetics, but also includes areas such as advancements in machinery, precision agriculture, robotics, artificial intelligence, and more.
The BerrySmart Field Project
BerrySmart Field is a collaborative experience between growers, researchers and tech providers to optimize blueberry farming operations, focusing on soil, soil nutrients, yield distribution, weather, chemicals and labor.
USHBC is working in partnership with innov8.ag and Washington Blueberry Commission to validate a smart farm network that enables blueberry growers, packers and stakeholders in sales, tech and research to collaborate on farm operation optimization with better and more predictable yield outcomes.
