While it's valuable for operators to gain familiarity with different systems and vendors, oftentimes these cultivators haven't considered how all these systems will interact and how the performance of one equipment category bears implications for other systems.
CEA is importantly not the answer to all the systemic problems in food production, but it is a powerful method that adds much needed resilience into supply chains, as the climate across the globe changes.
Engineers working in the agricultural industry can benefit greatly from implementing true maintenance- free pivots within their machinery. Maintenance-free pivots have several benefits that can help significantly increase efficiency within the agricultural field.
The most important elements to consider in your design are the interactions between what we call the 3 P's-people, plants, and products. Carefully calculate factors like fertigation, HVAC, staff, and technology.
This robust network continuously monitors the water pressure through the pipes that connect to the clusters that then feed each pivot. Monitoring is done via pressure transducers to the clusters.
To fully control their food supply chain, companies should ensure the reliability of demand forecasts, use historical data to inform anticipated lead times, create and maintain a safety stock, and utilize software to attain precision and dependability.
Data is king in modern business, and cannabis cultivation is no different. To understand precisely what's happening in every room of your grow facility, your facility needs a robust system of data collection and analysis.
One way to define sustainable packaging is: packaging that made of sustainable and/or sustainably sourced materials and that could be re-used multiple times.
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.
Luminaires for plant researchers are designed for the grower to adjust the light to reach their goals. Researchers need flexibility in spectrum and intensity as well as precise control to create reliable experiment conditions.
It is important to recognize that many aspects of the negative connotations that come along with modern pesticides are largely rooted in how the pesticides are used, not necessarily how they work.
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.
The new Aero fertilizer spreaders from agricultural machinery manufacturer RAUCH put the mineral fertilizer exactly where it is needed and in just the right quantity. Motors from FAULHABER assist with the precision dosing.
Although many of the currently available LED fixtures look similar and often utilize many identical components it is still important to fully explore performance metrics when evaluating lighting options.
If you don't have any data, how do you know what you are doing is right - or even a good thing? Connectivity provides a means to get the data from the fields. The data can then be analyzed to provide insights for better yields or cost savings or efficiencies.

The next evolution in Dorner's Edge Roller Technology conveyor platform, the ERT®150, is ideal for small and light-load assembly automation, as well as medical and medical-device assembly application. The ERT platform is the only pallet conveyor of its kind available with an ISO Standard Class 4 rating for cleanroom applications. Earning the ISO Standard 14644-1 Class 4 rating means Dorner's ERT150 will conform and not contribute to the contamination of cleanrooms to those standards. As implied by its name, the ERT150 (Edge Roller Technology) uses rollers to move pallets through the conveyor smoothly with no friction (a byproduct often seen in belt-driven platforms). The conveyor's open design eliminates concerns of small parts or screws dropping into rollers and causing conveyor damage or jamming. The ERT150 is suited to operate in cleanroom environments requiring a pallet handling conveyor. It is capable of zoning for no or low-back pressure accumulation and is ideal for automation assembly applications within industries including medical devices, electronics, consumer goods among others.
