The deployment of LED lighting in agricultural activities has attracted widespread attention worldwide. It can be carried out in harsh environmental conditions, providing food and reducing transport distances locally. The birth of a vertical farm aims to waste food production with greater efficiency and less resources.
Recently, in Scotland, the agricultural technology company Intelligent Growth Solutions (IGS) launched Scotland's first vertical farm and claimed it is the world's most advanced indoor farm, with the company's patented electricity and Communication technology.
It is reported that IGS's vertical farm is located at the James Hutton Institute, and researchers work with the IGS team to explore the impact of different growing lights on crop yield and quality.
According to IGS, vertical farms can be monitored through a single platform. This solution will help reduce energy consumption by 50% compared to other indoor growing environments.
