To secure global food supply in a highly efficient manner, BrightBox developed growth models for multilayer cultivation. Multilayer cultivation without natural sunlight makes crop production possible independent of seasonal influences, and climate and weather conditions. BrightBox is a center of expertise in the field of city farming, where research is conducted by a variety of academic and industry parties into optimal plant growth models. In these studies quality and production optimizing conditions are measures for light, air, temperature, nutrition, water and substrate. Applying these growth models can lead to higher cost-efficiency, faster cultivation, and higher quality products.
