Strategic Collaboration to Address the Global Food Crisis: NRGene and Granot Group Develop Elite Varieties for Vertical Farming
Companies are using NRGene's artificial intelligence (AI) technology to improve agricultural crop productivity while reducing their environmental footprint
Most farmers would probably agree that pest monitoring and management is an ever-evolving practice that requires undivided attention to both your crops and trends in the pest space. That's because insects are constantly evolving.
With consumers increasing the need for food supply chain transparency, we dive into six key factors driving these demands.
Invasive species pose a major threat to this industry because they can quickly redefine entire ecosystems. Many companies are developing tech solutions to eliminate invasive species and protect yields.
AgriCapture is expanding its growing Soil Enrichment Project to enable more farmers to receive premium payments for their climate-friendly practices. Since its launch, the project has more than doubled in size, with over 110,000 acres of regenerative farmland enrolled.
Lighting uniformity in architecture has been a topic of interest for at least seventy years (e.g., IES 1947), where the goal is to encompass the range of illuminance values measured at an array of positions on a horizontal plane, all in a single metric.
Not only is Ireland at the forefront of technology development, but also its adoption. The Ifac Irish Farm Report 2022 reveals that over 80 per cent of Irish farmers now use some form of AgriTech to accelerate operations.
The marriage of AI and agriculture is real and it is promising. Now, more than ever, it appears that the future of farming may well lie in artificial intelligence technologies.
New Air Source Heat Pumps provide energy efficient heating for garden centre whilst reducing CO2 emissions
Three new Air Source Heat Pumps (ASHPs) have been installed at the Perrywood Tiptree garden centre in Essex, providing a much more energy-efficient heating solution than the old oil-fired boiler system previously used.
When it comes to certified organic systems, pest monitoring and management is paramount to a successful operation. Unlike traditional farms that have access to a bevy of specialized pesticides that can typically be utilized as needed, organic farmers aren't so fortunate.
Part of this is to maximize the plant density per square meter, which means more and more plants can benefit from the same kilowatts sent to the LED lamps. We also use software to make better predictions on the amount that needs to be harvested so that there is zero waste.
Healthy soil functions as a living organism and is incredibly complex. Details like soil pH, moisture content and mycorrhizae levels affect how plants grow. Many farmers use soil tests to help them understand what's going on underground and supplement their crops.
Polycarbonate panels offer growers a superior cladding solution, delivering effective light transmission and diffusion, simplifying maintenance and improving their structure's heat retention. They also present a number of options to choose from.
Over the past decade, small local farms have been adjusting to increasing heat by switching out tried-and-true seed varietals for more heat-hardy varieties. By contrast, spring of 2022 has been unusually cold and wet-Seattle is experiencing its coldest spring since 1955.
Akin to Industry 4.0, Agriculture 4.0 refers to the next big trends facing the industry, including a greater focus on tools for precision agriculture, as well as agricultural technology ('AgTech').

Lighting - Featured Product
Horticulture and other forms of agricultural lighting require application-tuned ratios of spectral content, high efficacy and long lifetimes. Since these systems are designed to maximize yields for plants and animals, they require different metrics than lighting products designed around the human visual system. Cree LED delivers a wide range of spectral options and products optimized for these applications with leading efficiency and reliability.
