The Future Of Food With Integrity: Eight Ventures Selected For Chipotle Cultivate Foundation's Aluminaries Project, Accelerating Positive Change In The Food Industry
Eight food-focused, growth-stage ventures to participate in accelerator program to take their businesses to the next level and work toward cultivating a better world.
Big indoor farms are attracting big investments. But transforming agriculture might depend on putting nanofarms everywhere-maybe even in your home.
Modern growers incorporate tools like software, sensors, and robotics into their operations. But as agriculture become increasingly digital, how do technology creators build products that are as useful as possible?
Lights block out stars on clear nights and create bright, colourful skies on overcast nights
The vertical farming technique offers speedier supply chain for seedling production and with an eight-week turnaround time of seedling ordering system.
Time and again growers express disbelief in how artificial intelligence technology made by Montrealers with little experience in farming can solve age-old problems in greenhouse cultivation.
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.
LettUs Grow, creator of advanced aeroponic technology for indoor farms, announced today it has secured Â£1 million in funding to build world-leading indoor growing facilities, to help feed the growing global population.
Fluence collaborates with University of Florida researchers to explore the impact of blue light on water-use efficiency.
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.

Rollon's X-Rail linear rails are a reliable solution in environments susceptible to impurities. Equipped with rolling elements with shaped and flat raceways, they are available in several versions: galvanized, nitrided or stainless-steel sheet metal. The latter version ensures total corrosion resistance, which is critical for hostile environments such as those found in vertical farming. Particularly innovative is the T + U configuration of the X-Rail linear rails, which can compensate for the parallelism errors of mounting surfaces. This simplifies installation and reduces costs.
