As used in commercial indoor growing, LED lighting technologies have been around less than ten years. LED lights are less understood than other types of grow lights, which have been studied for several decades.
The Princeton Vertical Farming Project (PVFP) researches what the most optimal growing conditions are for indoor farming and how to produce the best crop yield while using the fewest amount of resources (e.g., water, electricity).
Because hydroponics, aeroponics and aquaponics do not use soil, they can be established indoors in locations that have cold, severe climates. These growing methods can also be used in localities that have poor, sandy soil.
Vertical farms, also called Controlled-Environment Agriculture (CEA), cant just be environmentally sustainable, they also need to be economically viable.
The round was led by GV (formerly Google Ventures) with participation from Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi.
The factory spans 11,040 square meters and incorporates a hydroponic culturing system with solar light and a closed seedling production environment using artificial light. Currently it can produce spinach, cabbage, red and green lettuce, coriander, and more.
Were reappropriating previously unusable industrial space to grow crops indoors, closer to the point of consumption, at a rate that is 100+ times more productive per square foot of land than that of traditional agriculture.
This extension of LoRaWAN-based network coverage adds three million hectares to NNNCos publicly available smart agriculture network
AGT Unveils Cleanroom Technology, Energy Efficiency and Fast Build Times to Empower Growers. The hybrid structures have transformed traditional plastic covered greenhouses into modern, insulated, sealed, natural light, cleanroom laboratories with unmatched energy efficiency.
AirBoard Inc. introduces AirBoard AGRO - an aerial platform for pesticide spraying in steep andmountainous vineyards.
Although they promise streamlined farming operations, higher yields and greater costs savings for growers, how much of AI and machine learning in agriculture today is more hype than reality?
If we can incorporate technology into already existing farming practices, we can increase production enough to feed the growing world. Technology can be used to grow more food on existing farms and to grow food in small spaces, such as indoor farms.
Consus has developed an intelligent software-based system that reduces the burden of audits and improves productivity. By linking HR records to labour deployment the facial recognition module enables accurate costing of all products and improved traceability.
Schneider Electric and Scale Microgrid Solutions Deliver Sustainable Energy Management to Bowery Farming
By leveraging predictive and learning algorithms, EMA will empower Scale Microgrid Solutions to better manage the production and consumption of its renewable energy and control energy spend.
Among other applications, startups are introducing technology to monitor crops using drones and sensors, manage farm activities and logistics from platforms and apps
