Cranberry Farm Goes High-Tech

Previously, Lee relied on hand-held digital and mercury thermometers to monitor the bogs' nighttime temperatures, but he wanted a more autonomous and hierarchical system that allowed for continuous monitoring of multiple variables.

How Can Smart Technology Benefit Vertical Farms?

Smart technology can benefit many industries and application areas. IoT (specifically sensors), smart systems used to control and monitor conditions, drones, and predictive analytics are all hugely beneficial, particularly for the vertical farming sector.

Advancing Automation Technology Could Help Vertical Farms Achieve Profitability, Finds IDTechEx

By using extensive sensor networks for monitoring crops and growing systems, vertical farms can optimize their workflow by helping operators efficiently pinpoint problems. This would serve to reduce labor complexities and thus manpower required.

Control Grow Conditions Like a Millionaire Without Spending a Fortune

Technology breakthroughs and innovative design have resulted in a new way to monitor and control the future of food production. Ensora Systems powers its monitoring and communications with any light - from LED light to sunlight.

Future Crops Brings Vertical Farming Closer to the Land

New agri-tech vertical farm system is reshaping agriculture to sustain the growing population with high-yield crops

"Growth Turbo" CO2 - How Does CO2 Fertilisation Work in the Greenhouse?

Higher yields can be achieved by artificially increasing the CO2 concentration in the greenhouse, especially for vegetables. This offers greenhouse operators an enormous competitive advantage compared to outdoor cultivation.

Cosy Climate in the Greenhouse - Climate Sensors Ensure Optimum Growing Conditions

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.

Integrating Sensors Key to Improving Environmental Conditions for Growing

When precision is needed to improve the yield of a grow room, consider all the factors that must be controlled. Integrating sensors to monitor these attributes are key to improving the environmental conditions of a grower.

Freight Farms and Sodexo Announce Strategic National Partnership to Grow Food Onsite at School Campuses Across the U.S.

With sustainability and transparency in mind, partnership will enable year-round on-campus food production at university and K-12 educational institutions and other national Sodexo clients.

How Curating Weather And Soil Data Can Produce Actionable Environmental Intelligence

As the availability and volume of data to help us understand what is happening or will happen in an agricultural field or orchard continues to grow exponentially, the challenge we now face is how to collect, synthesize and use this data.

Smart Farming based on image data

Smart Farming based on image data

Artificial intelligence makes image processing tasks possible that were previously either unthinkable or only feasible with great effort. These include the recognition of strongly varying organic shapes, the localization of randomly distributed objects in complex images and the recognition of anomalies that go beyond the deviations normally to be expected - and thus describable in rule-based image processing. AI Vision therefore opens up completely new application possibilities for imaging systems. The philosophy of the AI Vision system IDS NXT is, on the one hand, to fully utilize the potential of artificial intelligence and, on the other hand, to lower the entry barriers for the use of the new technology and thereby actively drive its dissemination in the market. This is why IDS offers the complete AI toolchain in addition to the camera, so that users can tackle their challenges without any lead time and with little prior knowledge. For customers, this means not only new application scenarios and workload reduction, but also faster market access and competitive advantages.
