Abstract

The paper highlights the importance of innovative digital devices of the brand new, synergytron class, compatible with the sixth wave of innovation, for overcoming the socioeconomic problems of providing urban population with safe and high-quality plant products all the year around. In the world practice, protected on-the-ground systems are mainly used for year-round cultivation of crops. These systems exist in many variants, differing in the applied methods and technologies, design solutions, geometric characteristics, level of automation and dependence on human participation, as well as the number of other adjustable parameters. The paper considers the possibility of using the latest digital technologies for growing plants within urban environments taking into account the most advanced developments of the sixth wave of innovation. The paper also considers the influence of megatrends on the development of methods and systems for growing plants as well as evolution of the farming paradigm in general. The results obtained by the authors can be applied further to scientific and practical activities of both scientists and representatives of the business community.
