What is starting to change for farmers is the increasing focus globally of large carbon emitters wanting or needing to offset their carbon footprint, This can either be through self-imposed sustainability goals, or it can be enforced by a government.
Vertical Farming on the Rise: Arkansas Agricultural Experiment Station and 80 Acres Farms Enter Research Agreement
80 Acres Farms enters into master research agreement with the Experiment Station at The University of Arkansas with scientists to propose collaborative vertical farming research projects aimed to advance the science of vertical farming
The state-of-the-art indoor facility will be fully dedicated to growing techniques harnessing the power of robotics and intelligence, enabling Iron Ox-a California-based company-to grow sustainable, local produce to serve the Texas community.
With farmers as well as other growers laying utmost emphasis on the supply chain's surety and security of sustainable food, vertical farming is getting recognition as a highly valuable means to drive and diversify efficiency.
The spike in robotic technology primarily has to do with the fact that there is a growing population that needs food. Without technology and automated applications in agriculture, it would be highly challenging for farmers to meet people's demands.
Buyers and markets are changing along with demand. To meet the needs of a global marketplace, agricultural producers have to understand how logistics processes can reshape production, shipping, storage, and more.
The entire face of team communications has changed, escalating the need for alternate ways to communicate with the growing mobile workforce. Internal and external communications are merging as businesses strive to reconnect with disconnected teams off-site.
The next 10-15 years will see huge disruption in farming, but also exciting changes for the agricultural industry as it invests in more sustainable and regenerative practices.
Eden Green Technology Breaks Ground on New Texas Greenhouse, Continues With $12 Million Strategic Expansion
Eden Green Technology's greenhouse modules are more sustainable and scalable than other hydroponic vertical farms, low-tech greenhouse formats, and traditional soil-based farming methods.
Infarm introduces its new high-capacity, cloud-connected Growing Centers - a major step in the company's efforts to accelerate the benefits to people and planet by building a scalable, sustainable and resilient global farming network
An effective traceability system plays an important role as an essential tool used to safeguard freshness, protect quality, and ensure integrity in provenance. In the U.S., field-farming supply chains rely on what's known as "one up, one down" visibility.
There is no correct or perfect way to run a facility and there is no correct way or perfect to grow plants. Every grower has his or her style. There is no guarantee that everything you do or were taught to do will result in a successful operation.
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.
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.

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.
