52% of commercial growers reported using LEDs as of 2020-an increase from 25% in 2016. This trend is expected to continue in the next decade. The sharp rise in LED-use among commercial growers is really two-fold: energy savings and complete optimization.
The team at UP Vertical Farms has spent the last several years researching and developing the latest technology to grow crops at 350 times the yield of conventional farming
The list recognizes companies across the globe successfully seeking ways to increase and improve sustainable agricultural productivity practices, including best practices in robotics and automation, indoor vertical farming and livestock wearable sensors.
Different plants require a different amount of light for healthy crop production. High-light crops, such as tomatoes, peppers, and cucumbers require a high Daily Light Integral (DLI). Both their quality and yield depend on them getting enough light throughout the day.
Grover is a durable, hygienic and highly capable autonomous mobile robot that allows Iron Ox to save water, land and energy - while predicting and responding in real time to local consumer demand.
Each year, a Trends Council of more than 50 Whole Foods Market team members, including local foragers, regional and global buyers, and culinary experts compile trend predictions based on decades of experience and expertise.
Plants respond differently to various spectra so choosing the best LEDs for you will depend on your specific cultivation goals and crops, location and climate, and several other key considerations.
Square Roots has more than doubled production of its classic crops like basil since the beginning of the pandemic, while introducing a new range of herbs and salad mixes to meet rising demand for local food.
Higher yields can be achieved by artificially increasing the CO2 concentration in the greenhouse, especially for vegetables. This offers greenhouse operators an enormous competitive advantage compared to outdoor cultivation.
New York City (NYC) has seen a significant boom in companies pioneering hydroponics, aeroponics, and aquaponics. According to PitchBook Data, venture capitalists invested $1.42 billion in agriculture-related startups in NY from 2012-2020.

Research on the ideal lighting for greenhouse cultivation reveals a fundamental truth: LED systems are far more efficient and effective than their HPS counterparts.
Water is a perfect example of a polar molecule. In fact, the polarity of water is what makes it such a good solvent. When salt is added to water it dissolves because the water molecules arrange themselves around the different ions and isolate them.
When it comes to lighting a greenhouse or any indoor grow facility, the number of factors to consider can seem overwhelming. Should you choose intelligent LEDs? Should you go old-school with HPS?
