The future of agriculture is exciting! There will be lots of changes with new technology, genetics, and farming practices, including the use of vertical farming in greenhouses to grow our food. But some things will not change; Saskatchewan farmers will always produce healthy and sustainable food while taking the best care of their crops and the environment.
Let’s take a look at how vertical farming works!
Vertical farming uses greenhouses to grow rows and rows of plants in a controlled environment.
Join us in learning what vertical farming is and how it can impact our future.
Vertical Farming Technology
Many specialty crops need a lot of hands-on work to grow and harvest the crops. The future of horticulture crops will also include more technology! Imagine seeing a herd of agri-robots working in a field to harvest strawberries, raspberries, wild rice, pumpkins, or other specialty crops. Check out the different agri-robots that have been invented to work on farms and in greenhouses!
There are a variety of agri-robots in development around the world.
With the help of agri-robots, farmers will be collecting much more data than ever before. Agri-robots could collect data on soil health, plant health, weather, and more and then use this data to make different decisions for different parts of the field. The robot could then send a robot sprayer or weeder to deal with the issue.
Agri-robots can help with the hands-on work required for growing plants.
Agri-robots can help spray the plants with pesticides as needed.
Other agri-robots have sensors that track data.
Agri-robots could make a big impact on the efficiency of agriculture in the future.
