With farmers as well as other growers laying utmost emphasis on the supply chain's surety and security of sustainable food, vertical farming is getting recognition as a highly valuable means to drive and diversify efficiency.
The spike in robotic technology primarily has to do with the fact that there is a growing population that needs food. Without technology and automated applications in agriculture, it would be highly challenging for farmers to meet people's demands.
Buyers and markets are changing along with demand. To meet the needs of a global marketplace, agricultural producers have to understand how logistics processes can reshape production, shipping, storage, and more.
The entire face of team communications has changed, escalating the need for alternate ways to communicate with the growing mobile workforce. Internal and external communications are merging as businesses strive to reconnect with disconnected teams off-site.
The next 10-15 years will see huge disruption in farming, but also exciting changes for the agricultural industry as it invests in more sustainable and regenerative practices.
Eden Green Technology Breaks Ground on New Texas Greenhouse, Continues With $12 Million Strategic Expansion
Eden Green Technology's greenhouse modules are more sustainable and scalable than other hydroponic vertical farms, low-tech greenhouse formats, and traditional soil-based farming methods.
Infarm introduces its new high-capacity, cloud-connected Growing Centers - a major step in the company's efforts to accelerate the benefits to people and planet by building a scalable, sustainable and resilient global farming network
An effective traceability system plays an important role as an essential tool used to safeguard freshness, protect quality, and ensure integrity in provenance. In the U.S., field-farming supply chains rely on what's known as "one up, one down" visibility.
There is no correct or perfect way to run a facility and there is no correct way or perfect to grow plants. Every grower has his or her style. There is no guarantee that everything you do or were taught to do will result in a successful operation.
The Committee on Climate Change's (CCC) Sixth Carbon Budget report explains that, in order to achieve net zero emissions, the UK must eliminate all fossil fuel generated power by 2035 and increase variable renewable energy production by 80 per cent by 2050.
All around the world, urban planners are looking for solutions for green architecture and infrastructure. To meet the ecological challenges, the Gartenheim housing association researched for eight years to develop an advanced vertical greening system - driven by maxon.
Using a model that blends aspects of technology, agriculture and science, Living Greens Farms is setting a template for the future of farming. With the addition of a new grow room in 2019, Living Greens Farm raised the total space of its aeroponic farm to 60,000 square feet.
2020 was an unusual year, to say the least. We all faced unprecedented challenges. But behind every one, we also witnessed incredible resilience, ingenuity and creativity. This is particularly true in agriculture.
Future Acres Launches to Bring Sustainable Agricultural Robotics to Farm Industry and Optimize Workforce Efficiency and Safety
Artificial Intelligence (AI), Automation and Electrification Technology Streamline Harvesting of Specialty Crops and Increase Production Efficiency by Up to 30 Percent with Improved Working Conditions
As farmers learn to adapt to a changing climate, the industry must also reduce its own carbon intensity by 2030 in alignment with the Paris Agreement to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Artificial intelligence can be used, for example, to classify fruit varieties or to identify damaged parts (e.g. apples with marks or colour deviations). To cover all possible variances with classical image processing would be very time-consuming and costly. AI is able to solve these challenges in no time at all. With IDS NXT ocean, there is now a user-friendly complete solution for industrial applications available. It requires neither special knowledge in deep learning nor camera programming.
