Using AI, Robotics and Plant Science to Grow Better More Sustainable Produce

With the support of computer vision that captures 3D images of each and every grow module and data science, we are understanding how our production systems are interacting with our crops and how we can improve those interactions.

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.

Racking for Vertical Farming Saves Spatial Requirements for Harbor Farmz

Originally, Ward estimated that he would need a facility with around 90,000 square feet, but with the right vertical racking he was able to cut his spatial requirements by nearly two-thirds.

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.

Could the Energy Crisis Power a Renewable Future for the Indoor Farming Industry?

Price instability has sent shock-waves through the CEA community, with a few even questioning its viability. But we don't think this is the end, far from it. This could be the driving force for changes akin those seen after the 1970's twin oil shocks.

CubicFarms and Deloitte Join Forces on New Carbon Commercialization Program

HydroGreen's commercial scale Automated Vertical Pastures™ technology helps meet increasing demand for valuable farm-based inset and offset carbon credits from all manner of organizations with net-zero goals.

What Is the Future of UK Vertical Farming?

With so many variables and Mother Nature becoming more unpredictable, our horticultural experts continue to field an increasing number of enquiries for controlled growing environments.

The Effect of Near-Infrared Radiation on Plants

Look at any textbook on botany and you will find this maxim: plants respond to optical radiation in the spectral range of 280 nm to 800 nm.The question is, how was this spectral range (sometimes referred to as Photobiologically Active Radiation, or PBAR) determined?

Is Scaffolding a Step Up (or a Step Back) for Your High-density Vertical Grow Rack System?

Vertical grow racks maximize yield by optimizing vertical and horizontal space from a grow operation. But there's a very important question every vertical indoor farm has to ask: How the heck are we supposed to get up there?

Key Differences Between Aeroponics & Hydroponics

If you're wondering what the differences are between Aeroponics vs. Hydroponics, you're probably not alone. These often misunderstood agricultural practices are set up to be the future of farming, but most people don't know much about them.

+14-28% Boost in Winter Strawberry Trial

In this study, the influence of spectral conversion under UbiGro quantum dot (QD) luminescent greenhouse films on plant growth and fruit yield of strawberries grown during winter was investigated.

Are High-Tech Containers the Future of Farming?

The upcycled shipping containers that house these systems can be placed virtually anywhere in the world - from island nations and urban areas to college campuses and the far reaches of Alaska - and produce food year-round.

Cultivating Sustainable Cannabis in South Africa

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.

Our large-scale automated Vertical Farm concept for investors and major UK retailers is 'next evolution' for industry

Cambridge HOK is confident of leading 'the next evolution of the Vertical Farming industry' having launched a new 'concept to completion' package to provide investors and retailers with their own fully automated indoor growing facilities.

igus - Maintenance-free gantry robots for vertical farming

drylin® gantry robots consist of two base X-axes, a Y-axis, and an optional Z-axis. Their self-lubricating plastic liners have been engineered to slide instead of roll and to run smoother and quieter than recirculating ball bearings. drylin® gantries are also lightweight, corrosion-resistant, maintenance-free, and cost up to 40% less than traditional gantry robots.
