According to the USDA, farmers spend a lot of money in AgInputs including fertilizers, crop protection and stimulant products but many of them do not work as expected, or even if they do, still 20 to 40% of the crop value is wasted because of different biological problems.
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.
Whether were talking about those who worked in flour mills or those who dealt with windmills, automated processes have always been on inventors minds.
The robotic industry is estimated to be worth $2.75 billion in farming with a projected annual growth rate of over 20% a year until 2022. We can expect this industry to eventually reach a market capitalization of $13 billion.
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.
Were reappropriating previously unusable industrial space to grow crops indoors, closer to the point of consumption, at a rate that is 100+ times more productive per square foot of land than that of traditional agriculture.
This extension of LoRaWAN-based network coverage adds three million hectares to NNNCos publicly available smart agriculture network
AGT Unveils Cleanroom Technology, Energy Efficiency and Fast Build Times to Empower Growers. The hybrid structures have transformed traditional plastic covered greenhouses into modern, insulated, sealed, natural light, cleanroom laboratories with unmatched energy efficiency.

Brainchild of Fords Thirty Under 30 philanthropic leadership program comes to fruition with reveal of new hydroponic container farm. The indoor farm operates without the use of pesticides, sunlight or soil. It also utilizes 90 percent less water than would normal.
AirBoard Inc. introduces AirBoard AGRO - an aerial platform for pesticide spraying in steep andmountainous vineyards.
Although they promise streamlined farming operations, higher yields and greater costs savings for growers, how much of AI and machine learning in agriculture today is more hype than reality?
New horticulture LEDs are designed to promote healthier plant growth and enhance farming conditions for indoor growers
If we can incorporate technology into already existing farming practices, we can increase production enough to feed the growing world. Technology can be used to grow more food on existing farms and to grow food in small spaces, such as indoor farms.
Ongoing advances in numerous fields, including LED and sensor technology, cloud computing, artificial intelligence and the Internet of Things, is enabling farm owners and managers to meet the increasing demands on pricing, efficiency and feeding a growing global population.

Why is compressed air safety a concern? How Cabinet Coolers Can End Costly Shutdowns A low cost, reliable way to cool and purge electronic control panels. EXAIR Cabinet Coolers incorporate a vortex tube to produce cold air from compressed air - with no moving parts. NEMA 12, 4, and 4X Cabinet Coolers that match the NEMA rating of the enclosure are available in many cooling capacities for large and small control panels. Cabinet Coolers convert an ordinary supply of compressed air into clean, cold 20ºF air.
