Food safety is the single most important part of what we do as food growers. BrightFarms has demonstrated its leadership in this space by transparently tackling challenges and charting a path forward.
Kellogg Company and NewEdge Inc: Why Innovation and R&D Must Drive Global Food System Transformation
To sustainably feed the world's growing population, we must embrace the next agricultural revolution and find new ways to innovate our food system.
When owners and head growers first start thinking about building a new commercial grow facility, often the first thing on their minds is profitability-how do we differentiate our product and outperform the competition with better plant quality and higher yields?
Managing the cash flow needed to yield a successful crop can be challenging. Gains are greatest when agronomic and economic benefits of input purchases are considered and revisited throughout the crop year.
INFARM STARTS OPERATING ONE OF EUROPE'S LARGEST VERTICAL FARMING FACILITIES IN BEDFORD. POTENTIAL TO SERVE 90% OF THE UK POPULATION
This is Infarm's first high-capacity Growing Centre in the UK, the facility measures 10,000 sqm and can feature up to 40 Infarm cloud-connected farming units, each standing 10 metres high. Each unit can grow more than 500,000 plants per year.
Price instability has sent shock-waves through the CEA community, with a few even questioning its viability. But we don't think this is the end, far from it. This could be the driving force for changes akin those seen after the 1970's twin oil shocks.
Agriculture is BIG Business. Despite its obvious importance in our lives, most of us are unaware of the actual size of agriculture as a market by itself - currently, a $9 trillion market employing about 27 percent of the world's population.
To reap all the benefits of the new wave of innovation, there needs to be collaboration between governments, big corporations, small and large farmers, landowners, and technology companies.
The future of farming is driven by technology. In this article, Priva's General Manager Middle East, Giovanni Angiolini, explores how the adoption of AgriTech can help achieve food security and self-sufficiency goals in 2022 and beyond.
If you're a grower who's concerned about the ongoing surge in energy prices, switching to LED lighting is a simple step you can take to mitigate against rising costs in the meantime.
The purpose of this paper is to help a reader understand what technology can be used to improve profits, the cost to implement such a solution and the estimated payback period based on cannabis prices and labor costs.
Profit. The math is simple on paper if you're running a lemonade stand. But a globally connected business, like a farm, is another matter. For decades, farmers have contended with fluctuating prices of inputs, operational costs, labor and more.
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.
Founder James Lloyd-Jones anticipates supplying 1,000 tonnes of fresh produce to UK supermarkets from the location, first revealed in June.
While yields are attractive, vertical farms have significant capital required for infrastructure, high land costs, and of course significant energy demands. The reality of these COG dynamics requires that vertical farm operators work hard to optimize their production.

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.
