Fluence by OSRAM Reveals Multiyear Global Research Results on Broad-Spectrum Lighting Strategies for Cannabis and Food Crops
In partnership with leading scientific research institutions around the world, Fluence explores broad-spectrum white light performance in select crops, cultivars
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.
While there are lighting fundamentals that apply no matter what type of facility growers are operating, there are certain strategies that indoor growers must use to be successful that are different than approaches greenhouse growers take.
Ground-breaking technology partnership will significantly improve plant yields and quality in AeroFarms' vertical farms through analytics, AI, drones and wireless networking.
Light has a complex relationship with plants. When the light touches a leaf, it can be absorbed by, reflected from, or transmitted through to other leaves. Plants appear green to us because they reflect and transmit slightly more green light than they do blue or red.
By using a computer vision-controlled system to map terrain and identify the size and location of rocks embedded in the soil, the heavy lifting is done by automated machinery which saves farmers a lot of time and money.
Solar simulators-indoor lights that reproduce the sun's spectrum-take many forms and serve different purposes, including testing sunscreens, solar cell efficiencies and performance testing of aerospace materials.
What is automation? How can automation help farmers do more with less? Is automation in agriculture a good idea? How is automation transforming the farming industry? Farmer's exploring technology tend to ask the same questions.
The industry will likely experience more connectivity as farmers use technology to share data and warn other professionals. Eventually, widespread adoption will fuel the creation of more ingenious floodwater protection devices, as well as various other beneficial inventions.
When precision is needed to improve the yield of a grow room, consider all the factors that must be controlled. Integrating sensors to monitor these attributes are key to improving the environmental conditions of a grower.
Farmers Edge solutions delivered an integrated software platform that helped the Tollefson Farm become more predictive on a number of fronts.
Seeing the potential of drones in reshaping agriculture, Japanese farmers now expect the first mass-produced, lightweight farm robot XAG R150 to reap a higher yield with quality fruits.
Whether in the field, in the barn, or in the greenhouse, robots and drones already handle a lot of tasks. Here's what they can do.
At the ETH Zurich, a robot has been developed to mechanically destroy the weeds growing between crops. "Rowesys" is conveniently started via remote control - and makes herbicides unnecessary.
Farmers are often left to protect their own land and are responsible for ensuring they take safety precautions to stop the spread of a wildfire caused by natural events. Fortunately, the USDA has assisted farmers that have experienced wildfire damage.
