Auburn University Department of Horticulture's Freight Farming Program

The two Freight Farms at Auburn University are a part of the college's horticulture program. They live in the Transformation Garden, an open-air classroom that is a beautiful spot on campus for all students to enjoy and learn.

Vertical Distribution of Growing Plants Results in Less Land and Soil Used

Using a close looped water recycling system, Kalera uses an estimated 95% less water than traditional field farming. This is especially important for the western parts of the United States

Hybrid Lighting: Using both LED and HPS

When considering horticultural lighting for a greenhouse or indoor grow facility, the decision almost always comes down to HPS vs LED. Choosing between a traditional HPS lighting system or a new LED technology can be very complicated.

How Can Greenhouses, Vertical Farms & Container Farms Work Together?

CEA is importantly not the answer to all the systemic problems in food production, but it is a powerful method that adds much needed resilience into supply chains, as the climate across the globe changes.

Designing a True Maintenance-free Pivot

Engineers working in the agricultural industry can benefit greatly from implementing true maintenance- free pivots within their machinery. Maintenance-free pivots have several benefits that can help significantly increase efficiency within the agricultural field.

Building a Project Plan for Commercial Grow Facility Design

The most important elements to consider in your design are the interactions between what we call the 3 P's-people, plants, and products. Carefully calculate factors like fertigation, HVAC, staff, and technology.

Technology Dramatically Improves Farm's Efficiency

This robust network continuously monitors the water pressure through the pipes that connect to the clusters that then feed each pivot. Monitoring is done via pressure transducers to the clusters.

Four Strategies for Food Supply Chain Management

To fully control their food supply chain, companies should ensure the reliability of demand forecasts, use historical data to inform anticipated lead times, create and maintain a safety stock, and utilize software to attain precision and dependability.

How to Use Data Collection for Cannabis Cultivation

Data is king in modern business, and cannabis cultivation is no different. To understand precisely what's happening in every room of your grow facility, your facility needs a robust system of data collection and analysis.

Sustainable Packaging for Fresh Produce

One way to define sustainable packaging is: packaging that made of sustainable and/or sustainably sourced materials and that could be re-used multiple times.

Grow Room Ventilation: The Pros and Cons of Positive vs Negative Air Pressure

When faced with challenges of contamination and odor control, some indoor growers have adopted pressurized ventilation methods, manipulating positive and negative pressure to protect their grow spaces.
