Matt Simon for Wired: The company is developing machine learning algorithms that will automatically detect diseased plants and kick them out of the system before the sickness spreads. Underdeveloped plants would also get the boot.
Jody Helmer for Civil Eats: Vertical farms allow food banks to grow their own produce with high-tech systems in an effort to fight food insecurity year-round.
Anne Trafton for MIT News Office: MIT engineers have created sensors that can be printed onto plant leaves and reveal when the plants are experiencing a water shortage
Torstar News Service: Forty-foot containers, equipped with infrared lights and vertical hydroponics systems, can produce up to 150 pounds of kale a week.
Emily Monaco for Organic Authority: The National Organic Standards Board voted last Wednesday to reject proposals prohibiting hydroponic and aquaponic production methods from being certified USDA organic.
Typically growers want to see the seed date, variety, quantity, and maybe harvest date on a plant tag. This can all be done with barcodes.
Morgan Kelly, Princeton Environmental Institute: Princeton Universitys Vertical Farming Project began at a conference in 2016 when the topic turned to increasing the crop yield of hydroponic systems
David Szondy for New Atlas: "Obviously the footprint needs to be small, so you have to go vertical. And you'll need to use artificial lighting. These are the problems we decided to solve for."
AeroFarms: Having raised in total over $100 million in corporate and project financing, AeroFarms will used the latest round of funds for continued investment in leading R&D and technology and additional farm expansion around the world.
Marilyn Kalfus for the OC Register: The 300-acre sustainable community, named Miralon, is planned as one of the nations largest agricultural neighborhoods, or "agri-hoods," where new homes crop up around community farms.
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.
Melissa Yeo for Stockhead: Roots sells an underground heating and cooling system for crops that increases yields and allows crops to be grown out of season.
Gerald Piddock for NZ Farmer: Larger farming machinery will be replaced by more efficient systems relying on emerging technologies, agricultural robotics expert Simon Blackmore says.
Mina Solanki for IAmExPat: Floating Farm will be made from a concrete base and will measure around 1.000 square metres. The roof will be fitted with solar panels and a rainwater collection system.
With all the planning, planting, spraying and marketing that goes into a growing season, its not uncommon for something to be overlooked come harvest time.

The 13 MP autofocus camera uEye XC is especially easy to operate and delivers high-resolution images and videos in the blink of an eye. Unlike typical webcams, it has been specifically designed for use in industrial applications and delivers sharp image data even in changing light conditions. Setting up and operating only requires a cable connection. The webcam-like camera is characterised by its particularly elegant and lightweight magnesium housing: with dimensions of only 32 x 61 x 19 mm, it is compact, sturdy despite its light weight and absolutely suitable for industrial use - benefiting, for example, kiosk systems, applications in industrial production or agriculture. With the uEye XC Starter Set, IDS offers a full-package deal for $500. (launch promotion, valid until 30 November 2022) that allows customers to evaluate and use the full range of functions of the new camera. The set includes not only the camera, tripod adapter and cable, but also a macro lens. Thanks to this lens, the camera is also suitable for demanding applications at close range. It easily shortens the minimum possible object distance and opens up additional application possibilities.
