Registration for WUR Autonomous Greenhouse Challenge extended

January 12, 2024

Registration for the 4th edition of the International Autonomous Greenhouse Challenge has been extended until February 20th.

This edition, Wageningen University & Research (WUR) and co-developer Tencent challenge teams to remotely grow dwarf tomatoes using artificial intelligence (AI). The competition starts this spring and consists of an Online Challenge in which AI and horticultural experts grow a virtual crop.

The top five teams from the Online Challenge will get their own greenhouse compartment at WUR in Bleiswijk, the Netherlands, in autumn 2024. There they will compete with each other to grow real dwarf tomatoes in the most sustainable and autonomous way possible.

By organizing the Autonomous Greenhouse Challenge, WUR and co-developer and technology company Tencent want to further connect the world of AI and food production, develop knowledge and make this knowledge publicly accessible.

Registration for the Online Challenge can be done until 20 February 2024. Potential participants can find more information about the rules, entry requirements and registration on the website.
