Global Climate Change Impact on Crops Expected Within 10 Years, NASA Study Finds

Climate change may affect the production of maize (corn) and wheat as early as 2030 under a high greenhouse gas emissions scenario, according to a new NASA study published in the journal, Nature Food.

Hedging Against Climate Uncertainty with Controlled Growth Environments

Global warming and climate uncertainty are making traditional farming increasingly unpredictable. But there is a solution - hedging against climate uncertainty with Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA), from traditional greenhouses to vertical farming.

Smart Solutions Help Farmers Combat Climate Change

As farmers learn to adapt to a changing climate, the industry must also reduce its own carbon intensity by 2030 in alignment with the Paris Agreement to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

igus - Maintenance-free gantry robots for vertical farming

drylin® gantry robots consist of two base X-axes, a Y-axis, and an optional Z-axis. Their self-lubricating plastic liners have been engineered to slide instead of roll and to run smoother and quieter than recirculating ball bearings. drylin® gantries are also lightweight, corrosion-resistant, maintenance-free, and cost up to 40% less than traditional gantry robots.
