Multilayer Growing System


Innovation image

Food security is major challenge globally due to growing populations and high levels of urbanization. Quality, quantity and location of food production are becoming increasingly important. Certhon has developed a multi-layer growing system and production growth chambers in which crop cultivation takes place in a fully controlled climate, without natural sunlight. The system integrates i.e. cooling and heating installations, irrigation, LED lighting and the possibility to cultivate on multiple levels, ventilation systems, internal transportation, and a turnkey ICT system. As climate conditions can be fitted exactly for specific crops, these growing systems improve product quality and increase productivity.
