Cannabis is well-known to be a resource-intensive crop. From lighting to water to HVAC to soil, there are numerous factors that affect production, morphology, costs, and waste.
Controlled environment agriculture will likely play a critical role in the future of crop production. Both commercially and locally, operations that use this growing strategy can produce crops year-round, while improving the quality and size of their harvests.
While an enticing opportunity, planning a commercial aquaponics greenhouse requires a detailed business plan and a clear understanding of your goals.
The key to growth in the Indoor Agriculture industry is to compete with traditional farming. That requires maximizing yields efficiently and reducing waste. We see the potential of being able to automate from seed to harvest to packaging to grocer.
Without effective organization or a convenient growing area, plants can be inadequately spaced, and growers miss out on potential profits since they aren't using their greenhouse to its full potential.
When it comes to lighting a greenhouse or any indoor grow facility, the number of factors to consider can seem overwhelming. Should you choose intelligent LEDs? Should you go old-school with HPS?
CO2, humidity and temperature sensors must provide accurate and reliable measurement results to the climate control system in the greenhouse. Inaccurate or even false readings impact on productivity and, in the worst case, can jeopardize the entire harvest.
Growers who are able to optimize the supplemental light they provide to plants can eliminate seasonal changes in production cycles, increase crop production, ensure crop consistency and grow quality plants year-round.
BrightFarms Extends Its Indoor Farming Stronghold to the Southeast with New High-Tech Carolina Greenhouse
