Our unique single-flow industrial-sized mobile aeroponics solution (GREENOVA) grows leafy vegetables and aromatic and medicinal herbs. Our mobile aeroponics equipment comprises an irrigation robot that sprays water and nutrients directly to the roots of the plants that are held by cultivation modules and a crop management software (GURU) to assist with the greenhouse manager’s tasks, ensure full traceability, manoeuvre crop modules for smooth execution and track data. Crops bloom using our precision spraying system that provides full oxygen availability with minimum microbiological risks.
