New York City (NYC) has seen a significant boom in companies pioneering hydroponics, aeroponics, and aquaponics. According to PitchBook Data, venture capitalists invested $1.42 billion in agriculture-related startups in NY from 2012-2020.
Water is a perfect example of a polar molecule. In fact, the polarity of water is what makes it such a good solvent. When salt is added to water it dissolves because the water molecules arrange themselves around the different ions and isolate them.
Solar simulators-indoor lights that reproduce the sun's spectrum-take many forms and serve different purposes, including testing sunscreens, solar cell efficiencies and performance testing of aerospace materials.
Vertical farming technologies allow for collecting the humidity produced by plants. With recirculating and recycling techniques, hydroponic and aquaponic systems can reuse 98% of water, which makes vertical farms feasible in deserts.
While applications like autonomous driving get most of the headlines around AI, this technology has become essential to the fabric of our digital lives.
Whether you are growing vertically, horizontally, indoors, or in a greenhouse, pests are a real concern for your crop. No matter where you are in the world, there are insects that will feed on your plants.
Using a model that blends aspects of technology, agriculture and science, Living Greens Farms is setting a template for the future of farming. With the addition of a new grow room in 2019, Living Greens Farm raised the total space of its aeroponic farm to 60,000 square feet.

&ever to produce daily 550kg of tasty leafy green varieties in a highly automated indoor vertical farm in Kuwait.
In spring, farmers' stores of winter veg will be running low and the new season's crops are not yet ready to be harvested. This period is called the "hungry gap". During the hungry gap, Britain relies even more heavily on imports to feed itself.
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.
Sustainably feeding a growing global population requires researchers to examine innovative food production approaches. One approach gaining traction is controlled environment agriculture (CEA), also known as indoor agriculture.
Supporters of vertical farming claim it could revolutionise global food production, practically eliminating food miles by enabling crop growth right next to urban population centres, paving the way for the future of smart cities.

This is today's agriculture: Tractors drive autonomously and the cultivation of fields can be carried out precisely and plant-specifically. Drones record the condition of the soil and crops from the air. Robots assist in milking, feeding, and monitoring animals. MVTec's machine vision software helps farmers realize these and other applications and confidently face many of today's modern agriculture challenges.
