LED-farming: landbouw gaat ondergronds

Ja, zegt men bij het Nederlandse PlantLab. Het druist helemaal in tegen de intuïtie van elke natuurliefhebber maar PlantLab meent dat groenten en fruit kweken beter binnenskamers kan gebeuren, onder led-verlichting en met artificiële klimaatinstallaties (bekijk de hele uitleg hieronder). De technologie die PlantLab heeft ontwikkeld zou toelaten meer te oogsten en dichter bij huis zonder beperking van het soort planten. Het strafste resultaat van PlantLab is dat geen (nul, niks, zilch) pesticiden nodig zijn om de planten te kweken. Agricultura LED: agricultura pasa a la clandestinidad. Is er een betere fotosynthese mogelijk dan met de zon? Ja, zegt men bij het Nederlandse PlantLab. AVF Summit 2016 - Amsterdam - Association for Vertical Farming.

Horticulture Section. The central theme of my research program is to understand the influence of environmental factors and cultural practices on the physiology, development, and biochemical characteristics of greenhouse crops.

Horticulture Section

Of particular focus is the influence of water quality and nutrient availability, temperature, light, and abiotic stress conditions on the physiology of herbaceous plants. This fits well with my extension goal of providing producers with relevant, research-based information for the production of high quality floriculture crops using nutrients, water, and energy efficiently. A challenge in floriculture research is the diversity of cultivars, species, and genera that are economically important. Research Focus The central theme of my research program is to understand the influence of environmental factors and cultural practices on the physiology, development, and biochemical characteristics of floriculture crops.

Hungry Planet Farms. Vertical Farming. Affinor Growers New Patent-pending System to grow fresh, non-GMO delicious food, without pesticides or dangerous chemicals with near zero water waste. Pasona O2: Urban Underground Farming. Two years ago we first covered Tokyo's underground farm; It is called Pasona O2 and was set up as a means of providing agricultural training to young people who are having trouble finding employment and middle-aged people in search of a second career.

Pasona O2: Urban Underground Farming

Of course, since we first posted the interest in local food has increased dramatically and there has been much more interest in urban farming. We also came upon some new information: The Pasona Group has a traditional farm in Ogata, but they want the "freeters" (Japanese slackers who hop between part time jobs) to get a taste, so to speak. It also is open to middle-aged people in search of a second career. There are a thousand square metres (10,000 SF) growing 100 different kinds of produce. "In the absence of sunlight, the plants are sustained by artificial light from light-emitting diodes, metal halide lamps, and high-pressure sodium vapor lamps. Room 1 Flower field. Room 3 Shelf rice field. Room 4 Fruit/vegetable field. Technology – Urban Produce LLC. Vertical hanging carriers of seeded trays rotate on a conveyor around the growing unit so that each plant receives equal light and air distribution.

Technology – Urban Produce LLC

We can grow product in natural or artificial light, above or below ground. In the rotation, the carriers cycle by a station where water and nutrients are dispersed. This entire process is controlled by a computer system and can be accessed via the internet. Smaller Footprint. The vertical stacking of the product greatly reduces the space required: 16 acres of conventional farming can be grown on a 1/8 acre footprint. Cost Savings. Supports The Local Economy. No Seasons. Proprietary. Meet Market Demands Quickly. Pasona O2: Urban Underground Farming. World’s Largest Indoor Farm is 100 Times More Productive. Greenhouse Automation Systems. Fully Automated Greenhouse Arduino.
