Chain AgTech Empowers Farmers With Controlled Indoor Environments
Cubic farm systems specialize in growing plants in controlled indoor environments. The chain-ag tech will empower farmers not only in North America but now in the Australian market to help farmers grow  predictable farm produce 365 days a year. This technology is particularly welcomed in Australia due to the issues of natural disasters and food scarcity in some regions. CubicFarms is an automated, environment-controlled system where trays of high-value crops like leafy vegetables, herbs and other crops follow a patented, undulating “V-shape” path that ensures all sides of the plant are evenly bathed in light to maximize growth.

Greenhouses in Space: Solving Food Production Needs
Nanoracks, a commercial space company plans developing orbiting greenhouses for super-resilient crops that would grow in the harshest environments on Earth. The American company, in Houston, Texas, contracted with the Abu Dhabi Investment Office (ADIO) to open a space farming research center in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). The lab would research resilient crops, fly the crops in space and subsequently test the ability of the crops to grow in arid conditions on our planet.Read More Here:https://www.space.com/space-greenhouses-nanoracks-food-crisisImage credit: Nanoracks/Mack Crawford)
