Good news for farmers in food insecure places: the government wants to help. In order to feed citizens with real, healthy foods, provision 12616 of the bill authorizes small grants for farmers who want to build hydroponic and aeroponic farms.
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.
New service can seamlessly integrate with any foodservice operation or support year-round CSA programs--no farmland or additional staff required
Model for large-scale, next-generation greenhouse horticulture aims to increase agricultural competition and vegetable cultivation in Japan
New HOBOnet Field Monitoring System from Onset Enables Cost-Effective Cloud-based Monitoring of Environmental Conditions across Fields and Greenhouses
HOBOnet gives growers and researchers greater visibility into field conditions with near real-time data from wireless sensors, alert notifications, and access via mobile devices
Innovative technologies deployed in the greenhouse promise higher-quality product with higher yields and lowest operating costs.
Open AgTech Announces New API Standard Enabling Growers to Use Technology to Its Fullest Within Greenhouses and Vertical Farms
Technologists come together to form new standard for connecting hardware and software for the indoor agriculture industry.
Many smallholder farmers also lack resources to use existing precision agriculture tools they desperately need to become profitable. Rockabye aims to make lucrative farming operations accessible and more affordable.
- Osrams venture capital arm Fluxunit invests in Canadian company for high-end greenhouse technology - Motorleafs data analytics pave the way to smart farming
The climate controlled farm will be powered by 100% renewable electricity and recycled irrigation water using proprietary methods that yield more than 30 times that of conventional farms, with higher levels of food safety and environmental sustainability.
Matt Hickman for Mother Nature Network: Seawater is pumped to the greenhouse installation where its used to cool and humidify the hot desert air drawn into the structures growing area using fans before going through an evaporation process that distills saltwater
Janice Cantieri for National Geographic: Instead of trapping heat, these greenhouses are made with breathable, aluminum-coated cloth netting that reflects some of the sunlight, reducing inside temperatures.
Shaped like a pane of glass, a luminescent solar concentrator is typically transparent, but contains a luminescent dye that absorbs light within a particular spectral range, then re-emits the light at a different wavelength.
Brian Spaen for GreenMatters: Theyll be farming in solar-powered greenhouses and vertical farms in densely-populated locations. This will bring in fresh crops to the community, adding to the great quality of life theyre hoping to achieve through its other sectors.

The next evolution in Dorner's Edge Roller Technology conveyor platform, the ERT®150, is ideal for small and light-load assembly automation, as well as medical and medical-device assembly application. The ERT platform is the only pallet conveyor of its kind available with an ISO Standard Class 4 rating for cleanroom applications. Earning the ISO Standard 14644-1 Class 4 rating means Dorner's ERT150 will conform and not contribute to the contamination of cleanrooms to those standards. As implied by its name, the ERT150 (Edge Roller Technology) uses rollers to move pallets through the conveyor smoothly with no friction (a byproduct often seen in belt-driven platforms). The conveyor's open design eliminates concerns of small parts or screws dropping into rollers and causing conveyor damage or jamming. The ERT150 is suited to operate in cleanroom environments requiring a pallet handling conveyor. It is capable of zoning for no or low-back pressure accumulation and is ideal for automation assembly applications within industries including medical devices, electronics, consumer goods among others.
