NOVAGRIC has developed in collaboration with Tecnalia an innovation project that solves the critical points of vertical agriculture, increasing the profitability of this type of installations.
Traditionally, most glass is produced as 'clear glass' - a staple in the growing industry for decades. Diffused glass can also help prevent sunburns from taking hold in the crop.
Using an in-expensive drone, they can map a full quarter section of land in about 20 minutes, providing a real-time map that is able to instantly show variability and allow them to quickly identify problem areas and determine solutions.
2022 Top Article - Indoor Agriculture: Driving up LED Efficiency to Reduce the Costs of Artificial Sun
Increasing lighting efficiency can make a big difference to running costs. This is one of the reasons driving the move to replace traditional lighting solutions with LEDs in recent years.
2022 Top Article - AI and Custom Imaging Hardware to Address the Challenges of Growing High-quality Crops
The twin pressures of a relentless increase in the demand for larger volumes and higher quality fruits and vegetables together with pressures on growers for more sustainable farming will drive the need for higher yields at the plant level.
Ensuring long-term success in cannabis cultivation requires investing in quality infrastructure that stands the test of time. The less efficient a system, the more money it will cost operators long-term. Let's shed some light on the efficiency of fixtures used in cannabis.
Growing Forward: A Glimpse into the 2022 Cannabis Lighting Market Report and the Bright Green Future
This article serves not only to highlight the key points of the 2022 report, but also to provide a perspective into long-term trends with a sense of hope-based on the facts. Fluence is keen to the struggles and successes of its Growing Family.
Many assume that artificial light in an indoor environment should emulate natural sunlight for the best growing conditions. However, this is not accurate. Light emitted from the sun contains many different wavelengths, some visible and some not.
Choosing horticultural lighting is one of the most important decisions a grower makes before setting up a greenhouse. It is often a large part of both CapEx, Capital Expenses, and OpEx, Operational Expenses.
amBX spoke with Stephan den Boer from Bever Innovations on their podcast about the role of technology in vertical farms, the challenges and opportunities faced.
Light Science Technologies finds supplementary lighting gives 12% crop yield increase in tomato trial
AgTech specialist Light Science Technologies (LST) has successfully completed its tomato trial with Crop Health and Protection (CHAP) to investigate lower energy technology solutions for vine crops.
This study monitored the growth of 'Coastal Star' romaine lettuce crops grown under an orange-red UbiGro luminescent quantum dot (QD) greenhouse film, and identical crops grown under a colorless control film at the Santa Fe Community College Research Greenhouse.
Two long-standing farming families have joined forces to realise their ambition to reach Net Zero by using traditional methods supported with cutting-edge technology, including an onsite vertical farm powered by solar panels.
When considering horticultural lighting for a greenhouse or indoor grow facility, the decision almost always comes down to HPS vs LED. Choosing between a traditional HPS lighting system or a new LED technology can be very complicated.
