NextGen Nano has released an infographic highlighting how the production of solar-powered glazing for greenhouse windows can help contribute to a sustainable future.
When faced with challenges of contamination and odor control, some indoor growers have adopted pressurized ventilation methods, manipulating positive and negative pressure to protect their grow spaces.
If growers don't want to go the custom route with their new greenhouse, they can obtain a prefab greenhouse. Typically available as greenhouse kits, a prefab greenhouse can offer a simpler, streamlined choice for many operations.
New Air Source Heat Pumps provide energy efficient heating for garden centre whilst reducing CO2 emissions
Three new Air Source Heat Pumps (ASHPs) have been installed at the Perrywood Tiptree garden centre in Essex, providing a much more energy-efficient heating solution than the old oil-fired boiler system previously used.
Polycarbonate panels offer growers a superior cladding solution, delivering effective light transmission and diffusion, simplifying maintenance and improving their structure's heat retention. They also present a number of options to choose from.

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
The opening of the company's fifth greenhouse puts it on track to double in size and production in 2021, making it the largest producer of indoor-grown greens in the U.S.

Allied Vision's compact and light weight Alvium SWIR (short wave infrared) cameras are the ideal choice to build cost-effective OEM systems used in embedded and machine vision applications. The cameras support a spectral range from 400 nm to 1700 nm at high quantum efficiencies. This allows to capture images in both the visible and SWIR spectra with a single camera and enables users to reduce overall system costs! Equipped with Sony's IMX990 and IMX991 SenSWIR InGaAs sensors, Alvium SWIR cameras deliver high image quality and frame rates. This makes them well suited for drones or handheld devices used in various industries such as, agriculture, mining, solar cell inspection or medical.
