Starting plants in a vertical environment
Create the perfect environment for seedings
by integrating an IGS Growth Tower into your operations
Integrating an IGS Growth Tower into your existing operations can bring many advantages, including to help deliver year-round, consistent and predictable production of healthy, nutritious and clean plants, helping working to reduce waste and take greater control of your supply chain.
Faced by nursery growers today
Unpredictable growth cycles
Grow days can vary dependant on the time of year and weather conditions during a plants growth cycle
Importing plants can lead to low quality, damage or disease resulting in high waste
Operations which require cold storage for plants can have high energy or space requirements, and can cause plants to lack vigour
Unseasonal or extreme weather events reduce yields and disrupt production
Protective chemicals increase operational costs and cause pollution and CO2 emissions
The IGS advantage
Our technology empowers growers to future-proof their operations by creating a hybrid growing model
Our technology delivers Total Controlled Environment Agriculture (TCEA), giving growers a predictable, consistant growing environment, year-round
Faster growth cycles
Significantly enhanced growth cycles compared with field or glasshouse-grown systems, e.g., broadleaf tree seedlings grow six times faster
Consistency of supply
Consistent production of seedlings and plugs ensures better performance in the next stages of a plant's growth
Growth environment can be optimised to control the root. Vegetable production necessary and can be easily scaled to meet demand
Standardised formats ensure compatibility with third-party automation of sowing and transplanting
Optimised for growth
Ebb and flow hydroponic system gives plants the best start following germination, and ensures excellent root growth
Localising your supply chain increases profitability and yields, and shortens production timescales
Crops currently being grown in an IGS vertical farm
These crops have been successfully grown by our team of plant scientists at our Crop Research Centre in Dundee, Scotland.
Who we help
Grow in a precision-controlled environment for the highest quality, locally produced tree seedlings with significantly quicker growth cycles.
Redirect your energy to a vertical farm for a more efficient, stable commercial agreement.
IGS vertical farms can produce high quality, consistent raw materials as inputs for products.
