An enthusiastic evangelist for modern vertical farming, Wihelmsson explained, "We took the concept of farming outdoors and brought it indoors, creating a controlled ecosystem where we can grow under optimal conditions year-round. We have a facility here of 7,000 sq meters.
Digitized and automated processes are becoming increasingly important in modern agricultural enterprises. Machine vision methods play a key role here. Among other things, they can be used for a variety of precision farming applications.
Smart farming involves the incorporation of advanced technologies into existing farming methods in order to increase production efficiency and the quality of the agricultural products.
Manufacturing is beset by major challenges that are made worse by hyper shifts in supply and demand. Three main areas that are persistently an issue for Manufacturers are quality and safety issues, waste and underperforming assets, and high environmental impact.
Farmers have had good scouting imagery technology for many years now, and this is an area that is ripe with new opportunity from automation and artificial intelligence. Thanks to innovations from emerging ag-tech startups, the technology is evolving quickly.
Selecting the most suitable energy source, like biogas, is critical. With the right system in place, farmers can benefit from a powerful and cost-effective fuel supply to run a multitude of operations, no matter how energy-intensive their processes may be.
By removing LED drivers from individual light fixtures, the new MegaDriveâ„˘ eliminates the need for electrical power connections throughout the greenhouse or grow room while significantly reducing up-front costs.
Malaysia, Indonesia and Thailand are also responsible for producing more than 90 per cent of global palm oil, which consequently causes 27 million tonnes of waste per annum from fruit bunches (EFBs), fibres, shells and liquid effluent.
There are ways to improve the carbon efficiency of plants, while increasing production. By making use of diversified cropping systems growers can reduce the carbon footprint up to 300 %.
Colleges around the country have found a way to add new educational programs while becoming more sustainable: Container farms. These farms are made from repurposed shipping containers and allow students and faculty to grow food all year long, without any soil.
With advancements in satellite technology, imagery can be taken from peak biomass to create a zone map based on how the crop performs out in the field. These maps generally look very close to how the yield map will look after harvest.
To optimize its automation infrastructure, the farm required an advanced control network to monitor the anaerobic digestion process and maximize productivity. CC-Link IE Field provided the right solution.
The agricultural sector is undergoing significant changes and is modernising. To take the strain off farmers, many robots are being developed to automate tasks. What specific technical characteristics should ag machinery manufacturers take into account to assist farmers?
While the reality of the current season's challenges is still fresh in our minds, it's a lot easier to apply this knowledge to future plans and ensure they are accurate and grounded in reality.
Establishes new distributed urban agriculture model to support onsite farms for grocers, restaurants and other businesses in the greater New York City area.
