The Growth of Agricultural Door Technology
The benefits of merging RAS (Robotics and Autonomous Systems) with Agricultural Door Technology was unknown to Lotinga.
Then Intelligent Growth Solutions contacted us and, an exciting Project unfolded.
Using indoor farming techniques within closed environments; means controlling nutrients, temperature, humidity, and lighting is easier.
To allow robotics and Eco-Strip doors to work together as one machine, IGS merged the agricultural door technology with the robotics system. Consequently, IGS realised the benefit of the Eco-Strip Door within the facility.
Robotics allow for the optimisation of space. Therefore, accommodating a high density of plants. As a result, these facilities are well suited for urban and industrial environments. Avoiding overproduction minimises waste. Plus, long-distance transport chains are not necessary, reducing the carbon footprint. To sum up, farmers can breed crops specifically to maximise yield.
Because Vertical Farms are so efficient, the facility needs minimum water. Thus, providing a solution for growing in areas where rain is scarce.
In addition, there is no need to breed resilient crops because pests are filtered out and cannot access them. In short, farmers can produce super organic food, a far healthier option.
While not the most economical solution, the ability to solve issues that traditional farming faces mean food producers should give Vertical Farms serious consideration.
