Drone can spray pesticides, spread fertilizers, and sow seeds directly by using a mobile phone to operate. Its versatile application and full automation are reshaping how rice is farmed, helping growers reduce labor costs.
Participating teams in the Pinduoduo Smart Agriculture Competition will compete to produce lettuce in shipping containers, using technology including LED lighting, crop modeling, and algorithms to control input variables.
Housed in Traditional Cargo Containers, New AI-Powered Shrimpbox Technology Offers Sustainable, Highly Profitable and Globally Scalable Protein Source
Atarraya's "plug and play" shrimp farming technology delivers up to 10X the ROI of traditional poultry or swine farming, creating new opportunities for farmers - even in landlocked, highly populated cities
For the first time in the UK, vertical farming will be trialled in a prison setting as part of a strategy to aid rehabilitation by empowering prisoners and helping them develop new skills to reintegrate back into society.
While growing crops in the center of a city may seem ideal, the reality is that this may be counterproductive. Obtaining and maintaining such a location is expensive and can contribute significantly to the operating expenditure of a vertical farm.
INFARM STARTS OPERATING ONE OF EUROPE'S LARGEST VERTICAL FARMING FACILITIES IN BEDFORD. POTENTIAL TO SERVE 90% OF THE UK POPULATION
This is Infarm's first high-capacity Growing Centre in the UK, the facility measures 10,000 sqm and can feature up to 40 Infarm cloud-connected farming units, each standing 10 metres high. Each unit can grow more than 500,000 plants per year.
The facility has produced its first crop of Class 1 strawberries, with the quality being verified by their customer, a large UK supermarket. It is setting out to grow and supply quality British strawberries to the mainstream UK market all year round.
Unlike regular industrial conveyors, food and washdown material handling solutions must be constructed of sanitary and hygienic materials to meet rigorous safety standards and must be easy to clean, maintain and inspect.
Over the past decade, small local farms have been adjusting to increasing heat by switching out tried-and-true seed varietals for more heat-hardy varieties. By contrast, spring of 2022 has been unusually cold and wet-Seattle is experiencing its coldest spring since 1955.
Maintaining abundant crop yields can effectively shrink society's starvation rate. Targeting greenhouse gas emissions and adverse field effects can increase global food security.
Transporting livestock is often more complicated than it first appears. Any unnecessary stress, movement or discomfort can jeopardize the animals' health, even resulting in death. Thankfully, innovative technology can help keep livestock safe and comfortable.
The upcycled shipping containers that house these systems can be placed virtually anywhere in the world - from island nations and urban areas to college campuses and the far reaches of Alaska - and produce food year-round.
