With extreme environmental conditions and increased food insecurity worldwide, EmersonGrow modernizes agriculture through the use of indoor vertical farming, machine learning, data analysis, and a sharing economy. Through a comprehensive grow light system, our patented technology can measure the application of light, down to the specific wavelengths, as well as other growing factors such as soil moisture, nutrition, temperature and growth rate. Combined with a machine learning model that can automatically identify plants and optimize growing conditions by analyzing user data, we enable people to share and download plant ‘recipes’ through a monetized P2P cloud platform.
Our mission is to grow more accurate, high quality, and consistent crops and maximize yield through vertical farming. For home growers, we provide hardware and a platform to educate, improve, and manage grow lights so that the results are consistent with that of a professional and experienced grower.
Considering the future of vertical farming, we want to increase our understanding of how light carries energy, which transforms into food/nutrition through chemical reactions with plants. We will be using AI to create a dialogue between human and plant by applying computer vision and machine learning models to collect data, and also analyze and understand plant growth to maximize yield with digital breeding. By harnessing the data, we will educate and assist growers worldwide to maximize yield, improve quality, and create breakthroughs in horticultural sciences and food production.
