Singapore-based hydroponics manufacturer announces launch into commercial farming, leveraging its patented, aeroponic technology to revolutionize commercial farms.
Getting a reliable structure with the right growing equipment is a good start, but to truly optimize their greenhouse, commercial growers need to incorporate automation.
The Almeria giant: A pioneering high-tech project developed by Novagric is breaking records in the area. The main goal is to improve both the production and quality of Palermo peppers and cucumbers in a controlled environment to achieve higher yields throughout the year.
Every grower strives to produce the best crop they can while keeping production costs to a minimum. The covering overhead is a major component, and when extras are added - anti-condensate, thermal capabilities, or bee compatibility - grower costs start to rise.
In 2022, the tomato producer has decided to build a new greenhouse module in Murcia of 7.3 hectares in one single unit, which is the largest greenhouse built in Spain in recent years. Looije achieved a 10 increase of tomato production in the new greenhouses.
Traditionally, most glass is produced as 'clear glass' - a staple in the growing industry for decades. Diffused glass can also help prevent sunburns from taking hold in the crop.
If you are a grower living in a colder climate, you need structural integrity and full environmental control for successful year-round greenhouse production through the cold, dark and snowy winter months.
While an enticing opportunity, planning a commercial aquaponics greenhouse requires a detailed business plan and a clear understanding of your goals.
On the heels of several technology development milestones and recently granted patents, new funding from NASA will accelerate the scale-up of UbiGro® quantum dot technology for greenhouse roofing
With winter on the horizon, it is important for commercial greenhouse owners to begin prepping for the seasonal shift. There are various tips that help ensure your winter growing season is efficient and successful.
When it comes to greenhouses and other indoor farms, it is important for HVAC units to create proper air circulation to ensure optimal growing conditions. Heating solutions are also needed to enhance growing conditions during cold weather.
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?
NextGen Nano has released an infographic highlighting how the production of solar-powered glazing for greenhouse windows can help contribute to a sustainable future.
When faced with challenges of contamination and odor control, some indoor growers have adopted pressurized ventilation methods, manipulating positive and negative pressure to protect their grow spaces.
If growers don't want to go the custom route with their new greenhouse, they can obtain a prefab greenhouse. Typically available as greenhouse kits, a prefab greenhouse can offer a simpler, streamlined choice for many operations.

"Smart farming" is an important part of the answer to this existential question: Extremely high efficiency in food production through the targeted use of the latest technology, computer-supported and - where possible - fully automatic. Seeds are individually and precisely placed; fruits carefully picked by mechanical grippers; fertilizers and plant protection products applied in small doses and in a targeted manner. These operations require a large number of small electric motors that are both robust and powerful.
