Mr Sven Yeo, its co-founder and chief technology officer, said firms in the industry are facing two main challenges: Supply chain logistics and regulatory barriers. "Right now, it is a challenge to be able to distribute items to outlets," he added.
Shared services for agri-tech companies in the new Agri-Food Innovation Park at Sungei Kadut, such as combining the delivery of produce from a few farms, could boost efficiency for budding companies in the industry, Mr Yeo said.Read More
From high-tech systems that allow farmers to predict yield and waste to recyclable food packaging material, Singapore is looking to technology to overcome challenges such as climate change, pollution and the over-consumption of resources.
At the Leaders in Science forum held yesterday, Archisen showcased their modular farming system and solutions, capable of growing fresh local produce at higher yield. Our technology is also capable of predicting yield and waste, optimising the growing process.Read More
Local agritech start-up Archisen believes that it can improve access to food in urban areas- by tapping on the Internet-of-Things (IoT) and data analytics.
“The company uses “statistical and mechanistical techniques to develop crop models for prediction and optimisation of crop yields. It involves collecting a range of data governing the growth and health of plants” said Mr Sven Yeo, co-founder of Archisen.Read More
Archisen is proud to have Nas Daily visit us where we showcased our modular farming system and solutions capable of growing 100x more yield than traditional farms. We design, build and operate vertical farms INDOORS by controlling the envionment with precise science to make sure vegetable yields are optimised and taste good.
In other words, we are building farms of the future.Read More
While indoor farming is not new, high-tech IoT-enabled farm Archisen is drawing on technical expertise from its partners to improve its production within a controlled environment, shielded from the vagaries of weather that have tormented farmers since the dawn of civilisation. Over time, it also plans to collate data across all of its farms to find the optimum yield for various cropsRead More
In 2015, investments in Agriculture Technology grew to $4.6 billion with investors participating from all over the world. Startups like Archisen are taking advantage of this and looking to utilize IoT capabilities and data analytics to improve the productivity of modern tech-based farms. Using sensors, cloud-based software, and crop-specific analytics, the system is able to provide real-time data on microclimates and nutrients. That data is then passed along to both the farmer by way of a mobile app, as well as directly to the growing system.Read More
