2018 EARLY-STAGE AGTECH REPORT

Developed in partnership with PitchBook, the report is the first in a two-part series looking at early agtech funding in specific regions around the globe. This report spotlights Australia/New Zealand, Canada and Israel; the next report will focus on the European Union and South America.

VERTICAL FARM 2.0: DESIGNING AN ECONOMICALLY FEASIBLE VERTICAL FARM

The Vertical Farm 2.0 (VF 2.0) report is the result of a Concurrent Engineering (CE) workshop held at the German Aerospace Center (DLR) in Bremen in conjunction with the Association for Vertical Farming (AVF). This workshop brought experts from throughout the world to lend their experience and knowledge in a collaborative manner. The baseline scenario developed for the VF 2.0 involves modular levels specialized for either leafy greens production or vine crop production. The final synopsis discussed is a facility which consists of a total of five modules; two of these modules are dedicated to leafy greens and two modules to vine crop production. All the while, the ground floor is a dedicated processing level which deals with harvested products and transport of goods out of the facilit

AQUAPONICS MUSHROOMS & INSECTS

After months of work and collaboration, AVFami (Aquaponics, Mushrooms & Insects) has developed an exciting new white paper talking about how to re-imagine the way we think about vertical farming. Instead of viewing each organism as a marketable product in a linear system, we encourage you to begin considering an ecosystem approach: looking at how the inputs and outputs of every organism can compliment each other, including insects and mushrooms. In thinking about our systems this way we can both reduce our carbon footprints and reduce those of the communities around us. Please, read the white paper (see link below) to get a better understanding of this concept and use it as a catalyst for conversations to come!

PRECISION AGRICULTURE AND THE FUTURE OF FARMING IN EUROPE

This study intends to inform Members of the European Parliament about the current state-ofthe-art, possible developments for the future, societal concerns and opportunities, and policy options for European policy-makers to consider.

ERS SENSORS: ADDRESSING THE MISCONCEPTIONS

A white paper that goes into further depth and analysis to quantify the expected distortion. However, the proof ultimately lies in the ability of ERS sensors to deliver the same quality imagery as their global shutter counterparts. The Sentera Double 4K, equipped with two 12-megapixel ERS sensors, is an excellent demonstration of this. The Double 4K equipped on various drone platforms consistently provides accurate, low-distortion imagery that can be reliably stitched into a 2D mosaic or 3D point cloud.

CLOUD TECHNOLOGIES THAT ARE SHAPING THE FUTURE OF FARMING

Only 17% of farmers currently use cloud computing, according to a 2014 Farm Journal survey. These users can sync their data on various devices and take advantage of customized software to get a more accurate picture of exactly what's happening down in the fields. But for those 83% of farmers and agronomists just getting introduced to cloud technology, where should you start?

THREE WAYS SPECIALTY CROP FARMERS CAN PROTECT YIELDS WITH PRECISION AG TECH

By 2050, it’s expected that the world’s population will reach 9.2 billion people, 34 percent higher than today, according to an IBM research study. To keep up with rising populations and income growth, global food production must increase by 70 percent in order to be able to feed the world. And according to the Census of Agriculture, there are over 14 million acres of specialty crops in the United States alone. In recent years, specialty crops have accounted for 30 to 40 percent of the total value of U.S. crops.

4 AG EXPERTS WEIGH IN ON THE FUTURE OF PRECISION AG TECH

Precision agriculture is a hot topic in the ag tech sector, and the ag industry is contuinally evolving and changing each season. Because of the changes in the ag industry as a whole (and more specifically in precision ag tech), the Spensa team decided to dig deeper and understand what growers, agronomists, and ag business owners believe about the future of growing. This ebook highlights four ag tech thought leaders with vast arrays of experience. Each provides his own unique perspective on the industry and technology, and offers predictions and advice for the future.
