Next-Generation Vertical Farming - An efficient and scalable design for urban farming

INNO-3 offers a vertical farming Solution providing climate parameters, crop handling automation, traceability and environmental data, and true scalability.

With a growing population, a growing demand for high quality, nutritious food production and competing land use demands, modern agriculture is facing challenges. This Solution from INNO-3B offers an innovative vertical farming technology that is highly optimised, scalable and profitable. Microgreens, leafy greens and herbs are grown in tall production towers at optimal environmental conditions year-round. Parameters include relative humidity, temperature, CO2 concentration and air flow. An automatic crop handling system eliminates the need for operators to go around the field or up-and-down fixed racking, while maximizing space use. Towers can be custom-built to fit the vertical space available in a building up to 40 ft high, and production surface can be upgraded up to 6 times the minimal configuration afterwards, offering economies of scale.
