In 2019, the Lotus House community expanded its resources and programming with the arrival of a Greenery container farm. The farm is the cornerstone of the nonprofit's educational programs for young residents, inspiring their curiosity about science, plants and nutrition.
A new generation of farmers are rising to the sustainability challenge. This agricultural revolution presents the transition from traditional farming to futuristic high-tech artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics.
There are challenges that vertical farmers face that they must solve to meet those future food needs and to remain sustainable. Here are some of the challenges, along with potential solutions, of vertical farming.
GKF is a carbon alloy shaft that is an alternative to zinc and chrome plating corrosion inhibitors. GKF provides a hardened and corrosion-resistant running surface that will optimize the performance of the company's iglide bushings.
Wastes from fields and wastes from processing are the two kinds of agricultural wastes. Field wastes are present after harvesting crops and include stems, leaves, and stalks, and waste after processing crops includes seeds, peels, husks, etc.
To encourage locals to source their foods from farmers, the agricultural industry has teamed up with technological experts to find ways to make it easier for farmers and the general population to form a trusted relationship.
Bear Flag's technology complements Deere's own technology initiatives and goals to help farmers achieve the best possible outcomes and solve meaningful challenges through advanced technology, including autonomy.
BABYLON MICRO-FARMS PARTNERS WITH HARVEST TABLE, PROVIDING FRESHER, HYPER-LOCAL FOOD OPTIONS TO TOP UNIVERSITIES ACROSS AMERICA
These micro-farms produce the freshest, high-quality selection of crops for kitchens to use in preparing their menus. Food from Babylon Micro-Farms is not only good for your health, but also for the environment.
Right now, the focus is to take vertical farming to the next level by developing smart robots which can increase precision and productivity, while minimizing environmental impact and risk.
Vertical farming technologies allow for collecting the humidity produced by plants. With recirculating and recycling techniques, hydroponic and aquaponic systems can reuse 98% of water, which makes vertical farms feasible in deserts.
LettUs Grow, GrowStack, Digital Farming & Farm Urban collaborating to deliver four social-impact vertical farming projects in Wales.
This is one of the widest collaborations between leading CEA tech providers in the UK to date, with a focus on delivering vertical farms across different locations in Wales as part of a social-impact and community focused project called Crop Cycle.
With the capability to produce 500 kilograms of cultured products a day, equivalent to 5,000 hamburgers, this facility makes scalable cell-based meat production a reality.
If we've learned anything from the global pandemic, it's that our current food supply chain is unstable. In the EU alone, lockdowns have kept laborer's from crops, farmers have been unable to get produce to market.
Digitizing agriculture has been a necessary step for the global economy. With a growing population expected to reach nearly 10 billion people by 2050, agriculture wouldn't be able to rely on human power alone.
SaaS-based Agriculture- Revolutionising the Agricultural Sector with Cutting-Edge Software Solutions
AI-driven farming can provide farmers with pest-risk forecasts, image-based insights, and weather pattern related information. AI allows farmers to tackle pest attacks, crop failure possibilities, climate change, and soil degradation smartly and more effectively.

The next evolution in Dorner's Edge Roller Technology conveyor platform, the ERT®150, is ideal for small and light-load assembly automation, as well as medical and medical-device assembly application. The ERT platform is the only pallet conveyor of its kind available with an ISO Standard Class 4 rating for cleanroom applications. Earning the ISO Standard 14644-1 Class 4 rating means Dorner's ERT150 will conform and not contribute to the contamination of cleanrooms to those standards. As implied by its name, the ERT150 (Edge Roller Technology) uses rollers to move pallets through the conveyor smoothly with no friction (a byproduct often seen in belt-driven platforms). The conveyor's open design eliminates concerns of small parts or screws dropping into rollers and causing conveyor damage or jamming. The ERT150 is suited to operate in cleanroom environments requiring a pallet handling conveyor. It is capable of zoning for no or low-back pressure accumulation and is ideal for automation assembly applications within industries including medical devices, electronics, consumer goods among others.
