Don’t Let Labor Shortages Holt Your Agriculture Based Business

In the current times, we are experiencing a higher demand for food. This responsibility ultimately falls onto the shoulders of farmers nationally. With over 7 billion people on this planet, the Agriculture Industry has a lot of hungry mouths to feed. However, farm owners are facing labor shortages. This is where John Henry Foster comes in. With our assistance, you can begin experiencing increased efficiency and speed in production. Just keep reading to find out how.

JHFoster and Agriculture Automation

Whether you’re focus is on dairy, horticulture or produce, we have systems that can cut your production time in half. We have a wide range of automation technology that can help increase the efficiency of your farm. However, we would like to give you a few examples of how we can automate your farm.

John Henry Foster has a team of specialists that have experience in using sensor technology. Sensors can detect and measure the growth of your crop. This can help to reduce a tedious task often performed by farm hands.

Another technology that can be accomplished by automation is using robots to detect ripeness of produce. That’s right! You can use robotic vision systems to assist robots in determining if produce is ready to be picked. Robots are able to assign color to a level of quality and ripeness. Ultimately, you can allow the industrial robot to then pick the produce for you.

Our final example is using robotic technology to remove debris from produce on a conveyor line. Robots are able to detect debris, again by using color recognition. They are able to remove anything that does not fit the color and shape of the produce. Another redundant task eliminated!

Agriculture and Compressed Air

Air compressors are the force behind making and pressurizing air. That’s why they are essential for the Agriculture Industry. Compressed air can be used across many different areas of the industry. Let’s start with a few examples.

We are all aware that air compressors help fill up air in our vehicle tires. This is true for inflating farm equipment tires, as well. Air compressors are able to power and pressurize air to fill farm equipment tires.

Next, let’s talk about nail guns. These are used to fix many structures and equipment found around the farm. By using pneumatic nail guns, you don’t have to worry about nailing structures by hand which can cause injury and pain.
