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
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.
Themar al Emarat selected the local Cat® dealer, Al-Bahar, to design, install and commission a comprehensive hybrid microgrid solution from Caterpillar that fully integrates advanced power generation, control and monitoring technologies.
Plant diseases can have huge effects on crop quality and crop yield. In 2022, there have been substantial increases in some of these diseases, especially in North America.
Urban agriculture is a growing trend across the country and around the world. In many cities, vertical hydroponic greenhouses and other urban agriculture facilities are making life greener, healthier, and all-around better for residents.
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.

Rollon's X-Rail linear rails are a reliable solution in environments susceptible to impurities. Equipped with rolling elements with shaped and flat raceways, they are available in several versions: galvanized, nitrided or stainless-steel sheet metal. The latter version ensures total corrosion resistance, which is critical for hostile environments such as those found in vertical farming. Particularly innovative is the T + U configuration of the X-Rail linear rails, which can compensate for the parallelism errors of mounting surfaces. This simplifies installation and reduces costs.
