Phase one of the New York-based, indoor farming pioneer's project will house a 150,000 square foot state-of-the-art climate-controlled, high-tech hydroponic greenhouse facility.
This data will be used to improve our understanding of ongoing trends in crop nutrient uptake and removal and make it easier to create decision support systems to determine how to optimize crop production in a sustainable way under changing environmental conditions.
Not only has this system improved the defect grading capabilities, also the capacity of the machine increased significantly. The Elisam GranTorino sorting machine could now easily process 1000 kg/h per lane.
Vertical container farming is on the up. Continuing pressure on UK growers to diversify their crops, rewild their land and use greener growing practices means that utilising the economic and environmental benefits of vertical farming is more popular than ever.
Researchers are using synchrotron light to literally peel back the onion on cell walls to help plants better withstand the stresses caused by climate change and disease.
As the climate crisis worsens and extreme weather events become more frequent and severe, it's crucial that growers employ smart and effective solutions for agricultural hail protection. Luckily, there are a few such technologies available in 2022.
A climate-controlled environment allows for year-round, reliable food production. This reliability means the consumer has access to fresh, locally grown produce in every season.
When it comes to digitising farm records, one of the best places to start is your machinery and farm vehicles. When you purchase that new piece of machinery, you want to ensure it is well maintained, in turn, protecting your investment.
The future of farming is driven by technology. In this article, Priva's General Manager Middle East, Giovanni Angiolini, explores how the adoption of AgriTech can help achieve food security and self-sufficiency goals in 2022 and beyond.
Because agricultural tires play such a critical role in getting work done, it's necessary to stay up to date on the latest tire technology. Below are six promising advances in agriculture tire technology that optimize equipment performance.
Below is more information about the revolutionary fruit harvesting technology that can streamline the picking process, allow farmers to overcome existing challenges and help solve ongoing labor shortages in the sector.
While an enticing opportunity, planning a commercial aquaponics greenhouse requires a detailed business plan and a clear understanding of your goals.
The LemnaTec system, called Scanalyzer3D, utilizes advanced cameras from Allied Vision to provide researchers with previously unavailable data on plant growth, root development, water absorption and drying, and photosynthesis.
Located at the University of Alberta in Edmonton, the lab's team of dedicated researchers led by Dr. R. Glen Uhrig are working around the clock to unlock the mystery surrounding signalling events that control plant growth and development.
It may not be the first consideration to come to mind, but fuel economy is a crucial factor in running a farm. Agriculture has an infamously large carbon footprint, emitting 698 million metric tons of CO2 equivalent in 2018.

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.
