In this video Simon Jordan looks that the technologies that are now making their way into the field - literally.

The future of vertical farming: the intelligent ecosystem

Machine vision and artificial intelligence coupled with a multitude of sensing technologies and robotic actuators means that we can focus on individual plants.

These technologies are robust enough to be deployed on agricultural machinery, something that even five years ago would not have been practical. This year we'll see real commercial deployments particularly with high value crops.
