High-tech food production in vertical farms (40 min.)
Controlled Environment Agriculture like Vertical farming is not dependent of influences of nature and seasons anymore. Each cultivation round can be a replicate of the previous one, product specifications always match with buyers requirements when a cultivation recipe has been developed. Data collection, data analysis and machine learning can lead to data driven cultivation concepts. Prof. Jasper den Besten gives you an update on the developments in this field.

Urban farming in the CLOUD? (30 min.)
More and more data is being collected in indoor farming operations. But can technology help you grow better quality crops and increase profits? Can you manage your crops at a distance and gain data-driven insights to make more profitable production decisions? Allison Kopf of Agrilyst, the ´Google Analytics for Indoor Farms´, talks about her vision for digital horticulture. She will also share highlights from the 2017 State of Indoor Farming report along with industry trends, statistics, and grower insights.
