When it comes to feeding the world, the gap between supply and demand is constantly expanding. By 2050, agricultural output will have to increase by at least 60% in order to adequately feed everyone on the planet. The global climate crisis is aggravating the situation, as is shrinking availability of arable land, diminishing water supplies, increasing land pollution, and a rising shortage of farm workers. These ominous trends point to the possibility of massive global food insecurity and even starvation. To make matters worse, farming is rarely profitable, and younger generations are no longer interested in pursuing their family businesses. Bioled’s innovative technology can help solve this existential challenge. The company is currently raising funds ahead of the impending rollout of its groundbreaking Smart LED Growing Light System – an advanced management platform enabling farmers to save significantly on land, water, electricity, human labor, and other resources. In fact, this breakthrough technology is set to make crop production a far more profitable endeavor. There is already a great deal of worldwide interest in the system, which is heading for mass production. Since Bioled’s Smart LED Growing Light System is designed for indoor crop growing and enables full control of variables such as light, water and temperature, growers will no longer be dependent on the whims of nature. Instead, they can manage their farming environment and ensure optimal growing conditions regardless of climatic and other external factors.

Indoor farming is the future Indeed, global food security can be achieved by changing the way our food is grown – specifically via widespread indoor farming. As opposed to traditional outdoor farming, this technique takes up far less space, is not dependent on sunlight or weather, and enables farmers to maintain complete control over all inputs. Any crop can be grown at any time of year, anywhere in the world! For example, a restaurant in the Northern Hemisphere can grow its own fresh vegetables throughout the winter in an indoor container, rather than having to import expensive produce from distant countries. In addition, crops grown in indoor facilities do not require chemicals and pesticides, and fruits and vegetables taste better than their outdoor equivalent, making the benefits for indoor farming quite compelling. To grow crops indoors, special lighting is necessary to replace natural sunlight and ensure that photosynthesis takes place. Bioled’s state-of-the-art LED lights are significantly less expensive and more precise than other lighting systems for indoor horticulture. Made with a polycarbonate rather than aluminum body, Bioled’s lights are more durable and lightweight. The company works only with the highest quality LEDs, and manufactures its drivers with advanced electronics to further increase energy efficiency. Indoor farming can have a huge impact on feeding the world’s population. Bioled’s light system, for example, dramatically shortens the crop cycle and significantly increases yields. In fact, with Bioled lighting, farmers can annually grow five cycles rather than two in nature, while tripling the average outdoor yield per cycle. Bioled is the market leader in Israel, and is gearing up to enter foreign markets. The company provides lighting for most Israeli cannabis growers, including the country’s largest and most advanced cannabis farm. Its technology has also helped triple the production of roses at a Negev farm during the winter, among other initiatives.

Holistic, user-friendly, and cost-efficient Bioled’s Smart LED Growing Light System heralds an age in which agriculture is transforming from a traditional to a high-tech industry. Despite its sophisticated technology, the system is easy to install and use, and requires little training. And farmers can manage the growing process remotely through a user-friendly software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution. The smart system collects data from the crop through sensors, and leverages artificial intelligence (AI) to adjust the intensity, spectrum and timing of the lights. It also interfaces with other inputs, such as fertilizers, irrigation and air quality, which farmers can easily manage by tablet or other device, to optimize growing conditions. The Smart LED Growing Light System features a controller with an encoder that connects to a cloud-based machine learning platform by wireless communications. No additional communications infrastructure is needed, since all data is transferred through the electric grid directly to the light system.

Bioled is poised to make a real difference in the world’s ability to feed its population, and is preparing the rollout of its new-generation system later this year. The company is currently raising funds and seeking partners in anticipation of its imminent breakthrough into the global market. For more information, click here.
