Israel's largest cannabis facility taps into REMY and Fluence's LED technology for better control over its cultivation process, leading to higher consistency throughout the grow
Oasis Springs Farm: How the Right LED Grow Lights Can Improve Crop Quality and Increase Production up to 33% in Shipping Containers
With technology always changing, when it came time to build their third container farm last year, they knew they needed to investigate the latest in LED grow lights.
While many farms currently approach their operations primarily from an agricultural perspective, it is worth noting that modern vertical farms share significant similarities with the manufacturing industry.
The prospects for 2023 are likely to call for the adoption of a strategy shift by indoor growers, one which will involve minimising costs by scaling down their business models to focus more on profitability.
This business case will expound on the results of dynamic LED lighting in propagation and cut flower production. It will highlight its impact on various plant characteristics and the proven effectiveness of Sollum's 100% programmable LED grow light solution in greenhouses.
In the fast-paced concrete jungle of Hong Kong, vertical farms and urban farms are sprouting up, bringing renewed energy to the agricultural landscape and a burst of green to unexpected places.
How important is it for tender new seedlings to germinate under a grow light? Plants typically grow faster, taller and denser with consistent illumination - but not all light bulbs nurture your plants equally.
We should not see Vertical Farming as a trend, but as a serious technology to be deployed to face those food challenges. This means first building a feasible business case with our client.
Full LED from Philips Horticulture LED Solutions saves 40% of energy for Topline Gerbera and increases stem weight
The Philips GreenPower LED toplighting force installation delivers more light with considerably less energy consumption, and can be used longer on an annual basis.
LED manufacturers are actively working to improve upon existing technologies helping to create more efficient lighting capable of providing a dramatic increase in yields with reduced energy consumption and lower overall costs
But how do plants interact with light? There are three main types of interaction: absorption, reflection, and emission. What does each of them mean in the context of plants? How do they differ from each other?
Fluence's partnership with Israel-based Trichome proves the viability of growing high-quality medical cannabis product in an efficient, standardized vertical farming model
We have consultants that use Agritecture Designer as part of their deliverables to clients. We have vendors that use AD as a sales tool when speaking with customers, and we even have educators interested in using AD as part of their CEA curriculum.
The research and development team is always on the lookout to try various crops that have yet to be grown in a hydroponic Tower. It was a first for our grow team to trial broccoli in the ZipFarm, so we removed all expectations.
Although each vertical farm is uniquely built to overcome local challenges and to meet specific goals, the advantages of farming vertically are universally evident: space efficiency, hyper-locality to consumers, and water conservation stand out among a plethora of benefits.

"Smart farming" is an important part of the answer to this existential question: Extremely high efficiency in food production through the targeted use of the latest technology, computer-supported and - where possible - fully automatic. Seeds are individually and precisely placed; fruits carefully picked by mechanical grippers; fertilizers and plant protection products applied in small doses and in a targeted manner. These operations require a large number of small electric motors that are both robust and powerful.
