Growth Towers for indoor farming
Fully automated year round growing
How we grow
The IGS Growth Tower is a fully-automated, vertical, Total Controlled Environment Agriculture (TCEA) platform. The Growth Tower platform is modular, scalable and can be configured to suit individual customer requirements. Our towers are available in six, nine or twelve metre configurations.
Our Growth Towers can grow multiple crops in one tower and the technology behind them allows them to be completely resource efficient.
Growth trays with lights (GTLs)
Our growing platform
Our GTLs provide the transport mechanism, growing platform, hydroponics tray, ventilation and the growing lights in a single unit completely removable from the tower for cleaning and maintenance.
Each tray supports plants in a number of formats and is irrigated by a central lift mechanism. Cameras monitor growth activity by recording time-lapse photography and use reference images to predict and monitor crop health.
Our Growth Towers provide flexible and precise plant production in any climate, anywhere in the world. But what benefits do you gain over traditional methods?
Reduce labour through automated growth environment management
Highly automated growing environment compatible with standard horticultural automation
Controls enabled at farm/tower/tray/LED strip level 24 hours a day, 365 days a year
Dynamic lighting utilised on each Growth Tray for low operational cost and maximum productivity
Minimise water loss through condensate capture from dehumidification
Centralised, cloud-based data capture simplifies operational optimisation
Efficient CO2 enhancement for optimised growing conditions
Significantly greater yield, quality and consistency with up to 30-50% faster crop cycles (on average)
Long term maintenance made easy due to accessibility and modularity
Our Growth Towers include technology which allows plants to thrive in the optimal conditions, with capabilities such as:
Manages light, temperature, humidity, water, nutrients and CO₂ levels
Supported LED dimming, pulsing and wavelength-mixing to maximise crop growth and quality
IoT-enabled remote monitoring and control of all systems
Remote crop monitoring and sensing with alerts
Designed to operate anywhere in the world
Can be grown with no protective chemicals or crop washing required (local regulations permitting)
Automated growth recipe deployment controls all environmental variables
Flexible growing environment allows multiple or single crops to be grown in each Growth Tower
Huge diversity in crop type growing capability with no hardware changes
