Cool New Technologies to Address Important Farm Challenges

Smart greenhouses hold great promise for dual-use farming and renewable electricity production. Electricity-generating solar greenhouses utilize Wavelength-Selective Photovoltaic Systems (WSPVs), a novel technology that generates electricity more efficiently and at lower cost than traditional photovoltaic systems, while allowing most wavelengths of light to pass through so plants can grow. This technology has the potential to take greenhouses offline. Agrilaser Autonomic is an automated laser that’s used on berry, grape, and fruit farms around the world. Birds have a natural instinct to avoid trouble, and the laser system plays on that response. Birds perceive an approaching laser beam as a predator, and they take flight to seek safety. Agrilaser has more than 6,000 global users of its laser tech.
