With practice, many hydroponic growers can fine-tune their growing environment to remove bottlenecks, minimize maintenance, and increase the quality of their produce. One way they do this is through automated nutrient dosing.
Little Leaf Farms, the best-selling greenhouse grown lettuce in the US, doubles greenhouse growing capacity and broadly expands across East Coast
The company also recently bought 180 acres of land in McAdoo, Pennsylvania and has plans to build another state-of-the-art greenhouse there to further distribution down the East Coast of the sustainably-grown lettuce
The Deep Flow Technique (DFT) is similar to two other hydroponic systems, but it ultimately works in it's own way. In this article, you'll learn how DFT hydroponic systems grow crops.
Since water is the main carrier of nutrients, it's essential that the water have as few impurities as possible. Poor water quality may cause plants to suffer from stunted growth, nutrient deficiencies, bacterial contamination and more!
While there are many different techniques with indoor farming, including hydroponics, aeroponics, and aquaponics, all of them have one thing in common - the lack of soil. Instead of using the concept of growing in soil, crops are instead grown in peat moss or coconut husks.
There are a lot of factors involved in giving plants the ideal combination of nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, and other necessary nutrients. The good news is that getting it right in the Greenery is actually pretty easy!
Illumitex terminates LED lighting operations to accelerate FarmVisionAI™, a computer-vision artificial-intelligence platform uniquely enabling the digital transformation of indoor farming
Natufia to feature the world's first fully-integrated and automated hydroponic kitchen garden at KBIS 2020
Since it is controlled indoors, homeowners do not need to worry about pesticides, herbicides or fungicides. These are year-round, 24/7, kitchen-to-table ingredients without the concern of weather challenges or seasons.
As we rush towards a greener tomorrow, techniques that have been given to us by mother nature are being revived with modern methods. Aquaponics has a long way to go but both economically and environmentally speaking, this path with have many rewards.
TrueHarvest Farms in Belton, TX, is ramping up their production of fresh, safe and locally grown leafy greens, using an automated hydroponic growing system from Green Automation.
High photon efficacy allows more light to reach plants for healthier growth and enables indoor farms to save on energy costs
Indoor Garden Works' (IGWorks™) iHarvest Kickstarter introduces a beautiful, soilless indoor garden that brings food gardening to the center of your home
Element Farms, an indoor hydroponic farming company capable of growing safe, pesticide-free spinach at scale year-round, has launched its investment round on equity crowdfunding platform WeFunder.
Because hydroponics, aeroponics and aquaponics do not use soil, they can be established indoors in locations that have cold, severe climates. These growing methods can also be used in localities that have poor, sandy soil.
The factory spans 11,040 square meters and incorporates a hydroponic culturing system with solar light and a closed seedling production environment using artificial light. Currently it can produce spinach, cabbage, red and green lettuce, coriander, and more.

Artificial intelligence can be used, for example, to classify fruit varieties or to identify damaged parts (e.g. apples with marks or colour deviations). To cover all possible variances with classical image processing would be very time-consuming and costly. AI is able to solve these challenges in no time at all. With IDS NXT ocean, there is now a user-friendly complete solution for industrial applications available. It requires neither special knowledge in deep learning nor camera programming.
