Farming lights that adjust based on plant needs
Crops can grow vertically, stacked in layers of vertically inclined surfaces. Vertical agriculture can increase production of fruit and vegetables and agricultural operations. In this context, the EU-funded FarMind project will make indoor vertical farms profitable by reducing the lighting energy bills by up to 75 %. Specifically, it is developing smart lights that can adjust the light emitted to match the exact needs of the plant underneath it. This new LED Grow Light System is based on AI and responds to the real photosynthetic needs of a plant. This new model is expected to make indoor vertical farming profitable and make it an urban solution for sustainably produced crops.
