In a closed ecological system, the maintenance of life happens through complete re-use of available material by means of cycles. Exhaled carbon dioxide and other waste matter is renewed chemically or by photosynthesis into oxygen, water and food.
We are providing a vertical growing platform that can be scaled and fills a need in the market for a growing platform that is flexible enough to cater to both home and hobby growing and large-scale commercial farming.
True Vertical™️ optimizes the amount of plants per square foot by growing them literally vertically along a wall that can be 25 feet tall and 35 feet wide, or even bigger. This wall of canopy is facing another wall of canopy. Lighting is in between.
Genetic engineering permits scientists to select only one definite gene to implant. This avoids introducing other genes with unwanted attributes. Genetic engineering also speeds up the development of new foods with wanted traits.
IoT devices permit growers to assemble more data about the condition of their farms, and IoT is indicating great potential for improving provision delivery and propelling agriculture to utmost productivity.
What Spread is focused on is fully integrated solutions on a large scale and then also adding key technologies to make the business more profitable - so adding lots of automation, sensors and data collection points.
Data accumulation and analysis is a key to the success of the Solaris model. Both inside and outside of the facility there are almost 100 different sensors which guide the various processes of cooling, heating, lighting etc.
At the FSR, research scientists, academia and industry come together to impart their knowledge with people all over Ohio, across the country and around the world. The object of the show is to create a more sustainable world.
Today, because of recent developments in soil and water monitoring, the critical information is being received in real-time measurements from the field, helping farmers make faster, more accurate crop production decisions.
There is a good assortment of drones that no longer need ground stations or PCs to communicate. A farmer can now head out into the field with only a drone and tablet and be able to collect high-res imagery in minutes with simple, easy-to-use mobile apps.
