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.
A Pivotal Point for Remote Irrigation Control
Compared with previous irrigation methods, pivot systems have been a primary driver of water conservation in irrigated agriculture. However, with the technology available now, they can perform even better - benefiting farmers as well as the planet.
Challenges and Opportunities Faced in Vertical Farming
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.
Vertical Distribution of Growing Plants Results in Less Land and Soil Used
Using a close looped water recycling system, Kalera uses an estimated 95% less water than traditional field farming. This is especially important for the western parts of the United States
Designing a True Maintenance-free Pivot
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.
Sustainable Packaging for Fresh Produce
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.
Lighting Solutions for Horticultural Applications
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.
Data and Connectivity, The Key to Agriculture 4.0
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.

Particularly small and cost-effective: Market launch of the uEye XLS cameras
Image processing opens up a wide range of possibilities for the automation of modern agriculture - but what to do when only a small budget is available? That is where the uEye XLS comes in. With the launch of these super-small industrial cameras, even price-sensitive applications and volume projects become feasible. Measuring just 29 x 29 x 7 mm, the compact cameras offer excellent imaging characteristics without excessive heat generation, making them a perfect fit for embedded vision applications in agricultural machinery and equipment. The industrial cameras comply with the vision standard and are available with Micro-B connectors and with or without C/CS or S-mount lens holders, further increasing their adaptability to different agricultural environments. Thanks to these features, the cameras offered by IDS Imaging Development Systems lower the barriers to entry and make it easier to explore the potential of vision technology to optimize agricultural processes.
