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.
On average our products provide a 3:1 ROI. Due to the economics of our tech-stack and products all forms of farming benefit with the use of Nanoliquid technology. In 2023, as commodity prices have somewhat softened our products have performed very well with Corn and Soybeans.
The importance of implementing better water management practices and improving water efficiency is the foundation of our products. By providing both ranchers and their livestock with sustainable resource management, we are safeguarding the long-term availability of water.
The device reduces fertilizer loss, helps farmers cover more acreage in less time and offers greater durability due to components that resist corrosion in the harsh agricultural environment.
We need to focus more on autonomous machines in agriculture - what machines are on the market, what are the advantages and why farmers should adopt this technology. The awareness has already improved the recent years, but we need to do better.
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.
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.
AI algorithms can then process this data to provide insights that aid in decision-making, improving yields and reducing waste. As a result, agriculture businesses can save costs, increase productivity, and ultimately improve their bottom line.
The federal government has passed legislation that prohibits government entities, government funded organizations, and private contractors that service the government. contracts from purchasing/using Chinese-made drones
Light quality and spectrum controllability is a prerequisite for the maximized use of light energy to save energy, reduce growing cycle times, enhance production, and improve product quality.
Food safety is the single most important part of what we do as food growers. BrightFarms has demonstrated its leadership in this space by transparently tackling challenges and charting a path forward.
Using an in-expensive drone, they can map a full quarter section of land in about 20 minutes, providing a real-time map that is able to instantly show variability and allow them to quickly identify problem areas and determine solutions.
2022 Top Article - Indoor Agriculture: Driving up LED Efficiency to Reduce the Costs of Artificial Sun
Increasing lighting efficiency can make a big difference to running costs. This is one of the reasons driving the move to replace traditional lighting solutions with LEDs in recent years.
2022 Top Article - AI and Custom Imaging Hardware to Address the Challenges of Growing High-quality Crops
The twin pressures of a relentless increase in the demand for larger volumes and higher quality fruits and vegetables together with pressures on growers for more sustainable farming will drive the need for higher yields at the plant level.
Compared with previous irrigation methods, pivot systems have been a primary driver of water conservation in irrigated agriculture. However, with the technology available now, they can perform even better - benefiting farmers as well as the planet.
