Vertical Farming Systems

Vertical farming technology increases the production of crops and reduces yields. Crops are produced in vertically stacked layers of plant beds. It mostly relies on hydroponics or aeroponics and the lighting mainly relies on LED lighting in replacement of sunlight to grow plants. Standard growing tables are not efficient when it comes to growing plants and heating an indoor space for growing. Especially when paying to heat or cool air above tables that could have a fully prospering crop. BP Automation in Edmonton, AB can engineer quality growing systems for your indoor farming needs.

Vertical Grow Racks

Increase your profits and your yield with a vertical growing system. vertical grow garden rack systems reconfigure typically made from high-quality powder-coated steel for a long-lasting product. You can design a garden rack system that is two or three-level, as well as if you want the tray and light supports and growing trays. Vertical systems provide create a fully scalable and expandable system, and allow for multiple tiers of plants to be cultivated on the same system and in any space. They also give the benefit of proper ventilation, and an LED grow light system.

Mobile Rack Systems

When it comes to vertical farming Mobile Racks systems allow you to move entire rows of racking beside one another utilizing the maximum amount of space. Growers can almost double canopy space for potential crops, especially if you are using a stacked system. You also have access to each side of the racks for ease of watering and harvesting crops. At BP Automation we can create a rack systems that is seismically engineered to protect crops protected and stable should any natural disaster strike.

Low Rise Grow Trays

Low rise grow trays or rolling bench systems can be used in indoor farming. They are built to increase airflow beneath the benches makes it easier for your climate control system to reduce humidity and reach growth goals while using less energy. This type of system also allows workers to work comfortably from a seated or standing position as they can move the benches of crop along for maintenance and water. Along with being a practical product for largescale grows, this type of design allows proper airflow for the optimal growth of crops.

Vertical farming technology can be custom engineered to fit your specific growing system. Our systems can integrate with your facility and equipment or design and install our systems in your new construction. We can custom design and engineer your vertical farming system.

Robotics in the Dairy Industry

robotic dairy farming

Automated farming continues to take large steps in growth. Dairy farming is no different. This industry is extremly important for the economy and overall population, however to sustain a dairy farm most farmers spend hours per day milking cattle day in and day out.

As automation takes the hand in the dairy industry, farmers can lay their hands and buckets to rest and run sections of their farms on autopilot. Over the past few years it has increased by large strides taking over conventional methods.

When it comes to this industry robotic or automatic milking machines help to increase production and flexibility for dairy farmers. These automated milking machines allow for the cows to milked at anytime without an individual present. In most cases detailed data can be recorded provding dairy farmers. Traditionally with automatic milking systems farmers would have to connect the machines to the cow themselves. With a custom robotic system a person does not need to be physically present.

Robotic milking systems can provide the following:

-Cleaning -Attachment -Milking -Disinfection -Attending to alarms -Monitoring performance of cows

Robotic milking also increases health for cows as enzymes in the milk are easily detected. With early signs of illness that can be detected from the smart machines, cattle can be treated sooner and decrease risk of further illness being spread througout.

Free Cow Traffic is just one method that can occur during robotic milking. Cattle do not necessarily need to be consistently gated for robotic milking to occur. It allows the cattle to roam free and move from the feed fence, water troughs and to the robot and cubicles without being restricted from fencing or selection gates. It has been known to yield higher milk production and reduced risk of mastitis one of the most common illnesses of dairy cattle. Not only does this method yeield highter rates of production and less illness it requires less requirements from the farmer to invest in further gates.
