Controlled Environment Agriculture
We evolve agriculture.
We develop cultivation systems for the present and the future, bringing in the technology needed to overcome the challenges created by climate changes, increasing demand and broken distribution chains. We evolve agriculture.
With Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA) we are able to grow plants all year-round independently of climate conditions on the exterior. This also enables growing plants in the city and urban areas using vertical farming, resulting in delivering the freshest products to consumers.
CEA aims to provide the optimal overall conditions for each grow, which enables higher productions per square meter. It also minimizes the risk of current conventional agriculture and delivering more control to the grower. This applies to vertical farming, greenhouses and outdoor precision agriculture.
Using different sensors and software we can feel the instant conditions around plants, providing knowledge on factors that are negatively impacting growth. With full control on nutrition, light, temperature, humidity and air flow, plants grow stronger and faster with no need of herbicides or pesticides. It is always smart to plan ahead and be sure to keep these factors in check. This can be done with good engineering, dimensioning and elaborating detailed procedures.
From leafy greens to medicinal herbs, hemp and cannabis, let us help you increase your yields.
How can we help?
We offer all the services and equipment needed to protected environment cultivation. Let our hands-on experience and broad technical knowledge help you build your growing facilities and business.
We help you define the best technical solutions for your project, based on your needs, crops and location. We use multiple proven methodologies for system design, light planning, hvac loads and needs, energy balances and consumptions for greenhouses or fully indoor systems.
Already know what you need? We develop Engineering and Technical Projects to make it real, from preliminary studies to drawings, technical specifications and tender documents. We provide all project and documentation needed to build your facility.
IoT Solutions and Data Analysis
Monitor and control your production from anywhere in the world, integrating innovative monitoring technology and remote sensing with plant science knowledge. By using detailed real time data you can understand how to control climate inside your grow area and increase your Energy and Water Use Efficiency.
With our in-depth knowledge about plants and our functional lab site we provide training and tailor made recipes for crops, climate control and process flow.
Why we can help?
Fully Indoor areas allow the finest climate control which means the highest productivity. Keeping ideal conditions at all times comes with a high investment in terms of energy use, equipment and lighting. Still, it is the cultivation method which best optimizes workforce, floor space, CO2, water and fertilizer use.
Project and Plan
Designing and engineering your farm is key for success. We can help develop your project with technical and hands-on experience.
Our systems can be installed in any vacant space with any area and are ideal for urban areas, where there you can maximize value for the unbeatable freshness you can deliver to clients. greens presented to the costumer.
Maintenance and Production
We can help optimize your farm with the right equipment, training work forces and cultivation and maintenance procedures.
Why we can help?
Greenhouses have been evolving since roman times and enable the use of the sunlight with some degree of climate control. Due to tremendous improvements in growing technologies, smart greenhouses are prolifering and enabling more production with less resources.
Project and Building
We work with multiple estabilished suppliers of structures and equipment in order to project the most suitable greenhouse for your needs. A greenhouse is not simply replicable in another space or for a different cultivar.
With the right sensors and controllers you can automate your greenhouse and grow heathier plants with less resources and labour. Monitor key values as temperature, humidity, VPD and CO2 and energy balance and understand what your crop is needing.
Through detailed analysis and simulations you can choose what equipment suits your needs and improve energy and resource efficiency (ventilation, lighting and hvac systems)
How can we help?
We have knowledge and hands-on experience to set up a high quality growing and processing facility, so you can grow and deliver the best Cannabis plants, meeting necessary standards and good practices in an efficient process.
From indoor to greenhouse production or even outdoor, we design all the necessary facilities, process and plants flows, delivering detailed floorplans, technical specifications and engineering projects.
All our projects are based on necessary quality requirements of your final product, following GACP, GMP and GDP guidelines. We design quality assurance activities, delivering detailed SOP's for each activity.
Our experience enables the design and implementation of efficient work flows, efficient cultivation and climate control strategies.
