WITH SOLLUM, HEMP PRODUCER INNOVAGRO MAKES THE SWITCH FROM HPS TO DYNAMIC LED LIGHTING

Facing similar challenges and pressures as experienced with cannabis production, Innovagro has made the decision to switch from more conventional high-pressure sodium (HPS) and metal halide (MH) fixtures to dynamic LEDs to better control light spectrum and intensity.

Raspberry Cultivation in a Vertical Farm is a Promising Option for Increased Yield

In the Philips GrowWise Research Center by Signify, we explored how artificial lighting, hydroponics and precise climate control come together to optimize the growth of raspberries year-round.

More cucumbers and lower energy consumption thanks to Signify's full LED at Qcumber Optimize Nature VOF

A small percentage of far-red light guarantees a good plant development. At full power, the system delivers 78 µmol/m2/sec (+41%) more than the old installation, while consuming 20% less energy.

"Preserving Valencia's Water; Empowering Farmers with Organic Fertilizers for Pollution Free Aquifers".

The impact of inorganic fertilizers on the environment includes soil degradation, water pollution, and contribution to greenhouse gas emissions. More usage may lead to nutrient runoff, affecting water quality and aquatic ecosystems

+27% Yield Boost in Microgreens Trial

This study, locally known as the 'Glow and Grow' project, monitored the growth and development of two aquaponic microgreen crops: mizuna (a Japanese mustard green) and a 7-crop braising mix.

+5.4% Boost in Cannabis

After three months under the films, dry, trimmed harvest weights were reported in September of 2019. Dry yield showed an extra 2.5 lbs harvested from under the film, equivalent to a +5.4% increase in total dry yield.

New R&D project for vertical food production without artificial lighting.

NOVAGRIC has developed in collaboration with Tecnalia an innovation project that solves the critical points of vertical agriculture, increasing the profitability of this type of installations.

Clean and Biosecureobile Vertical Grow Racking Systems

Pipp's team of engineers and installation experts worked with Planted Detroit to install mobile vertical grow racking systems that were clean and biosecure.

Light Science Technologies finds supplementary lighting gives 12% crop yield increase in tomato trial

AgTech specialist Light Science Technologies (LST) has successfully completed its tomato trial with Crop Health and Protection (CHAP) to investigate lower energy technology solutions for vine crops.

Avocados: Better Crop Quality and 40% Production Increase with Nanobubble-Infused Irrigation Water

To prevent water from flooding the root zone, it's imperative to supply avocado trees with enough dissolved oxygen so they can absorb the water efficiently. The benefits of root zone oxygenation are well-established

+14-28% Boost in Winter Strawberry Trial

In this study, the influence of spectral conversion under UbiGro quantum dot (QD) luminescent greenhouse films on plant growth and fruit yield of strawberries grown during winter was investigated.

Innovative SWIR camera for UAV based spectral remote sensing

Innovative SWIR camera for UAV based spectral remote sensing

Allied Vision's compact and light weight Alvium SWIR (short wave infrared) cameras are the ideal choice to build cost-effective OEM systems used in embedded and machine vision applications. The cameras support a spectral range from 400 nm to 1700 nm at high quantum efficiencies. This allows to capture images in both the visible and SWIR spectra with a single camera and enables users to reduce overall system costs! Equipped with Sony's IMX990 and IMX991 SenSWIR InGaAs sensors, Alvium SWIR cameras deliver high image quality and frame rates. This makes them well suited for drones or handheld devices used in various industries such as, agriculture, mining, solar cell inspection or medical.
