80 Acres Uses Tech to Improve Sustainable Farming
80 Acres Farms, an indoor farming company, received an initial investment from Siemens Financial Services and will use its technology to foster sustainable, traceable, and more productive farming practices.
Siemens Smart Infrastructure is providing power distribution equipment while its energy and building management technologies within the facilities help monitor fire and life safety, security and power distribution systems from a single interface.
Utilizing Siemens’ set of software and hardware solutions with facility and energy management systems to advanced industrial automation technology, 80 Acres Farms can meet its goal to optimize and standardize its operations. The company has five production farms in southwestern Ohio, a new farm in Florence, Kentucky, a future farm in Covington, Georgia, and R&D facilities in Arkansas and the Netherlands.
Working with the company’s technology subsidiary, Infinite Acres, Siemens supports the industrialization and scaling of the company’s proprietary Loop platform – a comprehensive solution that encompasses crop management software and algorithms, environmental controls, robotics, and automation.
“Infinite Acres has built the Loop platform through collaboration with best-in-class technology partners such as Priva, Ocado, and Signify. Our new partnership with Siemens takes our collaboration and technology platform to a new level through the 360° approach across software and connected hardware solutions — from digital twins to advanced controls,” says Tisha Livingston, co-founder of 80 Acres Farms and CEO of Infinite Acres, in a statement.
