What is the Importance of Grow Light Colour and Lighting Consistency?

Many assume that artificial light in an indoor environment should emulate natural sunlight for the best growing conditions. However, this is not accurate. Light emitted from the sun contains many different wavelengths, some visible and some not.

HPS vs. LED: The Costs of Horticultural Lighting

Choosing horticultural lighting is one of the most important decisions a grower makes before setting up a greenhouse. It is often a large part of both CapEx, Capital Expenses, and OpEx, Operational Expenses.

Challenges and Opportunities Faced in Vertical Farming

amBX spoke with Stephan den Boer from Bever Innovations on their podcast about the role of technology in vertical farms, the challenges and opportunities faced.

Light Science Technologies finds supplementary lighting gives 12% crop yield increase in tomato trial

AgTech specialist Light Science Technologies (LST) has successfully completed its tomato trial with Crop Health and Protection (CHAP) to investigate lower energy technology solutions for vine crops.

17% Yield Boost in Romaine Lettuce Trial

This study monitored the growth of 'Coastal Star' romaine lettuce crops grown under an orange-red UbiGro luminescent quantum dot (QD) greenhouse film, and identical crops grown under a colorless control film at the Santa Fe Community College Research Greenhouse.

Traditional & vertical farm to partner on their road to Net Zero

Two long-standing farming families have joined forces to realise their ambition to reach Net Zero by using traditional methods supported with cutting-edge technology, including an onsite vertical farm powered by solar panels.

Hybrid Lighting: Using both LED and HPS

When considering horticultural lighting for a greenhouse or indoor grow facility, the decision almost always comes down to HPS vs LED. Choosing between a traditional HPS lighting system or a new LED technology can be very complicated.

Syngenta's Interra® Scan soil health mapping service unveiled at Fields of Innovation 2022

One of the world's highest-resolution soil mapping services to be piloted in continental and Eastern Europe. Precision innovation to help growers optimize input use.

Applications of Geothermal Energy for Agriculture

Farmers use geothermal energy to heat them and can use geothermal water in the pipes to adjust humidity levels if needed. This power source helps crops grow faster and be more reliable.

Designing a True Maintenance-free Pivot

Engineers working in the agricultural industry can benefit greatly from implementing true maintenance- free pivots within their machinery. Maintenance-free pivots have several benefits that can help significantly increase efficiency within the agricultural field.

Using transparent solar power for cultivating crops

NextGen Nano has released an infographic highlighting how the production of solar-powered glazing for greenhouse windows can help contribute to a sustainable future.

Technology Dramatically Improves Farm's Efficiency

This robust network continuously monitors the water pressure through the pipes that connect to the clusters that then feed each pivot. Monitoring is done via pressure transducers to the clusters.

How to Use Data Collection for Cannabis Cultivation

Data is king in modern business, and cannabis cultivation is no different. To understand precisely what's happening in every room of your grow facility, your facility needs a robust system of data collection and analysis.

Sustainable Packaging for Fresh Produce

One way to define sustainable packaging is: packaging that made of sustainable and/or sustainably sourced materials and that could be re-used multiple times.
