The aeroponic origin story is deeply rooted in space and science fiction. In space, crews must utilise all resources to their fullest potential, reducing, reusing and recycling everything they take with them.
Other factors driving the market include growing urban population, and reduced environmental pollution. However, high initial investment and crop production of limited varieties restrict the growth of vertical farming market.
So what is actually happening on UK farms? Why is there a shortage of workers? What does this mean for UK farmers and consumers? How do we fix the problem?
UMD Researchers Lead New Multi-Institutional Grant to Examine the Legal, Economic, and Policy Implications of Solar Power on Agricultural Land

Partnership comes as Fifth Season announces opening of industry-leading vertical farm, expanded partnerships with Whole Foods and Giant Eagle, and its innovative direct-to-consumer e-commerce platform
Perdue Farms Becomes the First Poultry Company in the United States To Create a Pollinator-Friendly Habitat Throughout its Solar Installation
A pollinator-friendly ground cover consists of a variety of flowering plants that provide food in the form of nectar and pollen. It contains a mixture of plants that bloom from early spring to late fall so that flowers will be available when pollinators are active.
Procurant Trace™ tracks the origin and distribution of fresh produce from farm to consumer to enhance trust and safety across the food supply chain.
As some states start lifting COVID-19 stay-at-home restrictions, the agriculture industry continues to struggle under a largely shut-down America. The industry is experiencing losses in the billions between the dairy, meat, and produce sectors.
By carefully tailoring the environment to the exact requirements of the crop, such as through using LED lighting to produce the exact light spectrum needed for optimal photosynthesis, it is possible to obtain yields hundreds of times higher than traditional agriculture.
In spring, farmers' stores of winter veg will be running low and the new season's crops are not yet ready to be harvested. This period is called the "hungry gap". During the hungry gap, Britain relies even more heavily on imports to feed itself.
The delicacy of our food supply networks has been exposed, and now is the time to reflect on how our systems could change for the better, as well as our behaviour as consumers - demonstrated by those who have pledged to support local businesses more during this time.

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.
