Urban Crop Solutions (UCS) and Dr Rudi Pauwels will set up a research centre on indoor farming applications in southern Spain. Research at the centre will focus on the impact of climate change on crops in Southern Europe, while working on optimising the nutrient content.
Growing Forward: A Glimpse into the 2022 Cannabis Lighting Market Report and the Bright Green Future
This article serves not only to highlight the key points of the 2022 report, but also to provide a perspective into long-term trends with a sense of hope-based on the facts. Fluence is keen to the struggles and successes of its Growing Family.
Many assume that artificial light in an indoor environment should emulate natural sunlight for the best growing conditions. However, this is not accurate. Light emitted from the sun contains many different wavelengths, some visible and some not.
Choosing horticultural lighting is one of the most important decisions a grower makes before setting up a greenhouse. It is often a large part of both CapEx, Capital Expenses, and OpEx, Operational Expenses.
Pipp Horticulture worked with Sozo to implement multi-level Mobile Vertical Racking Systems that allowed them to create 70% more canopy space, totaling 24,824 sq. ft.
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.
Battery technology needs to be developed in order to withstand the heavy loads of agricultural vehicles and supply a lasting and reliable source of power.
Microsoft reached out to Blue Radix to help them develop a commercial version of the Blue Radix solution for autonomous growing. This solidified the partnership and helped develop what would become the commercially available Crop Controller service.
Instead of elaborately programming a solution, neural networks and deep learning algorithms teach an image processing system to see, recognize and verify objects - in this case smoke.
The company 3D scans parts with high precision to adapt or reproduce them for machine modifications like a core cleaning module or an enhanced sowing system.
This study monitored the growth of 'Coastal Star' romaine lettuce crops grown under an orange-red UbiGro luminescent quantum dot (QD) greenhouse film, and identical crops grown under a colorless control film at the Santa Fe Community College Research Greenhouse.
Farmers need to meet the demanding sustainability regulations, attempt to increase their yield, and improve productivity across all crops, all while conserving both farmland and water due to a diminishing natural resource base.
The NORD solutions eliminated the need for outdated shives/pulleys/belts/guards, etc. They also use a direct-drive concept that is much safer and more efficient.
When owners and head growers first start thinking about building a new commercial grow facility, often the first thing on their minds is profitability-how do we differentiate our product and outperform the competition with better plant quality and higher yields?
The two Freight Farms at Auburn University are a part of the college's horticulture program. They live in the Transformation Garden, an open-air classroom that is a beautiful spot on campus for all students to enjoy and learn.

Allied Vision's compact and light weight Alvium SWIR (short wave infrared) cameras are the ideal choice to build cost-effective OEM systems used in embedded and machine vision applications. The cameras support a spectral range from 400 nm to 1700 nm at high quantum efficiencies. This allows to capture images in both the visible and SWIR spectra with a single camera and enables users to reduce overall system costs! Equipped with Sony's IMX990 and IMX991 SenSWIR InGaAs sensors, Alvium SWIR cameras deliver high image quality and frame rates. This makes them well suited for drones or handheld devices used in various industries such as, agriculture, mining, solar cell inspection or medical.
