The Committee on Climate Change's (CCC) Sixth Carbon Budget report explains that, in order to achieve net zero emissions, the UK must eliminate all fossil fuel generated power by 2035 and increase variable renewable energy production by 80 per cent by 2050.
All around the world, urban planners are looking for solutions for green architecture and infrastructure. To meet the ecological challenges, the Gartenheim housing association researched for eight years to develop an advanced vertical greening system - driven by maxon.
Using a model that blends aspects of technology, agriculture and science, Living Greens Farms is setting a template for the future of farming. With the addition of a new grow room in 2019, Living Greens Farm raised the total space of its aeroponic farm to 60,000 square feet.
2020 was an unusual year, to say the least. We all faced unprecedented challenges. But behind every one, we also witnessed incredible resilience, ingenuity and creativity. This is particularly true in agriculture.
As farmers learn to adapt to a changing climate, the industry must also reduce its own carbon intensity by 2030 in alignment with the Paris Agreement to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
NORD DRIVESYSTEMS offers full-featured drive solutions that can tackle the toughest requirements in the poultry industry, including applications from processing to packaging.
In collaboration with Wageningen University & Research and Compassionate Cultivation, Fluence is proud to announce the findings of a series of groundbreaking photobiology research studies examining how light spectra affect cannabis growth and development.
The district has been producing food with conventional methods since the 1990s. But now, it's being expanded to integrate vertical farming systems, research and public outreach.
We're building for a future where modular vertical farming solutions are an accessible means of food production in urban areas. By modular vertical farming solution, we are referring to turnkey grow systems from the size of a shipping container down to a household appliance.
Dual-purpose solar is the strategic co-locating and land management for both solar power development, ecosystem services and agricultural production. This method can reduce electricity costs, preserve soil health for traditional land use after decommissioning.
Forage Mass Monitoring (FFM) analysis has been traditionally done using biomass sampling to calculate biomass yield per hectare (t ha-1). Current research is now looking at reflectance spectroscopy methods using remote sensing systems based on unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).
Dr Antony Dodd's research into the plant circadian clock had found that optimising growing conditions to match the clock resulted in plants that contained more chlorophyll, allowing them to convert more of the available light into biomass and grow faster.
The array at Just A Few Acres features thirty-six, 170-watt panels, amounting to a cumulative 6.2 kilowatt capacity. The panels are framed by three poles that can be manually tilted throughout the year to accommodate for seasonal changes in the sun's position.
A biosensor is an analytical device that can be used for the detection of target analytes. It consists of a transducing device (transforms a biochemical signal into a measurable signal) and a biological element, such as enzyme, antibody etc., which is immobilized.
The cost of natural sunlight is an important thing for producers to understand because there is an economic value that they should be placing on sunlight. It's one of the main inputs to production!
