What makes a growing container automation compatible?

What many growers are missing these days are the working individuals they've always counted on. Labor is scarce for several reasons, like the reforms of immigration policy, the increasing minimum wages and the lack of interest by the younger generation to entertain a career in the horticulture industry. 

Therefore, increasingly more growers are relying on automated technology to combat these labor shortfalls. This shift has been showing to increase efficiencies and reduce human errors, but it is important for the grower to check if their growing containers are  automation friendly, so that they will work properly. 

"It is important to understand the pros and cons when it comes to automated equipment which has a high upfront cost, requires some additional oversight and inspection, and, as it is a machine, can be finicky and plagued with issues if not utilized correctly. Additionally, not all growing containers are created equal. If you are not using an automation compatible container with your new state-of-the-art equipment, you run the risk of internal damage which may not be covered under the manufacturer’s warranty."
