New Air Source Heat Pumps provide energy efficient heating for garden centre whilst reducing CO2 emissions
Three new Air Source Heat Pumps (ASHPs) have been installed at the Perrywood Tiptree garden centre in Essex, providing a much more energy-efficient heating solution than the old oil-fired boiler system previously used.
Polycarbonate panels offer growers a superior cladding solution, delivering effective light transmission and diffusion, simplifying maintenance and improving their structure's heat retention. They also present a number of options to choose from.

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.
Controlled environment agriculture will likely play a critical role in the future of crop production. Both commercially and locally, operations that use this growing strategy can produce crops year-round, while improving the quality and size of their harvests.
The key to growth in the Indoor Agriculture industry is to compete with traditional farming. That requires maximizing yields efficiently and reducing waste. We see the potential of being able to automate from seed to harvest to packaging to grocer.
Without effective organization or a convenient growing area, plants can be inadequately spaced, and growers miss out on potential profits since they aren't using their greenhouse to its full potential.
When it comes to lighting a greenhouse or any indoor grow facility, the number of factors to consider can seem overwhelming. Should you choose intelligent LEDs? Should you go old-school with HPS?
CO2, humidity and temperature sensors must provide accurate and reliable measurement results to the climate control system in the greenhouse. Inaccurate or even false readings impact on productivity and, in the worst case, can jeopardize the entire harvest.
Growers who are able to optimize the supplemental light they provide to plants can eliminate seasonal changes in production cycles, increase crop production, ensure crop consistency and grow quality plants year-round.
BrightFarms Extends Its Indoor Farming Stronghold to the Southeast with New High-Tech Carolina Greenhouse
The opening of the company's fifth greenhouse puts it on track to double in size and production in 2021, making it the largest producer of indoor-grown greens in the U.S.
The cost of natural sunlight is an important thing for producers to understand because there is an economic value that they should be placing on sunlight. It's one of the main inputs to production!

Technology Beats Humans at Growing Strawberries at Greenhouses in Pinduoduo Smart Agriculture Competition
The four technology teams, which employed data analysis, intelligent sensors and greenhouse automation, produced an average of 6.86 kilograms of strawberries, or 196% more than the 2.32 kilograms average for the three teams of traditional growers.
By removing LED drivers from individual light fixtures, the new MegaDrive™ eliminates the need for electrical power connections throughout the greenhouse or grow room while significantly reducing up-front costs.

Horticulture and other forms of agricultural lighting require application-tuned ratios of spectral content, high efficacy and long lifetimes. Since these systems are designed to maximize yields for plants and animals, they require different metrics than lighting products designed around the human visual system. Cree LED delivers a wide range of spectral options and products optimized for these applications with leading efficiency and reliability.
