Keeping the Bugs at Bay – Preventing Pests in Controlled Environments
Ag-tech tools deliver solutions for farmers to some of the most common, persistent growing issues. Smart sensors, monitors, and automated tools work together to optimize greenhouse or indoor farming environments while minimizing the time and effort spent managing these growing variables.
When people talk about agriculture, sunshine and rain seem like basic ingredients. That’s typically true—but only up to a point. Increasing numbers of growers are finding indoor farming to be a powerful and profitable alternative to tilling the soil outdoors.
Expanding an indoor farm from a single small room to multiple grow rooms can create—for lack of a better expression—some growing pains. Entrepreneurs often find that what works in a small grow room with a few plants doesn’t work in larger grow rooms. The environment is harder to control. Precise nutrient recipes are harder to hand-mix. And it’s harder to do it all with so many things pressing for time and attention.
