An innovative, integrated systems approach to vertical farming

Date | 13 May 2019
Time | 1:40pm - 2pm
Speakers | Andy Anderson

Vertical farming is reaching a crossroads. It promises increased food production, higher quality and locally-grown crops. How can innovation be harnessed to drive down operational costs and make vertical farming commercially viable? What’s needed is a true networked systems approach, incorporating sensors and other inputs that provide feedback to the system’s “brain”, allowing the system to adjust itself. We will share our vision of the technologies needed to create such a system and share examples of leading-edge work that is already shaping the future of farming indoors.
