Seed to harvest
An IGS vertical farm creates the perfect growing environment, year-round
Growers of seed-to-harvest crops (such as herbs and leafy greens) face a range of challenges, from an increasingly unpredictable climate to fluctuations in market demand and labour shortages. Our technology has been built with these challenges in mind and with flexibility at its core.
An IGS Growth Tower provides a stable growing environment, capable of growing a range of crops. Production can be sped up, slowed down and even paused to deliver optimal harvests and reduce waste in line with market demand.
Faced by seed-to-harvest growers
Pests and disease
Pests and diseases can negatively affect yields and significantly increase production costs
Increasing costs and shortages of experienced labour can limit productivity
Extreme weather events are affecting outdoor growing like never before, resulting in lost harvests
Demand for certain crops can change seasonally and in response to unexpected events
Many countries are implementing stricter controls and regulations around land and water use in response to environmental concerns
The IGS advantage
Our technology empowers growers to future proof their operations, allowing them to provide customers with high-quality, sustainably grown produce.
Our technology delivers Total Controlled Environment Agriculture (TCEA), giving growers a stable and consistent growing environment, year-round.
Increased growth cycles
Growth cycles which are up to 50% faster than traditional methods
Growth rate can be managed and growth recipes tailored to develop specific crop characteristics, allowing production to flex on demand
The automation in our Growth Towers reduces human interaction with crops, meaning safer food production and lower OpEx
The growing environment can be modified and used to enhance key nutrients or boost desired flavour profiles
Continuous updates on crop growth recipes give you access to the most up-to-date knowledge in crop science
Traceability throughout the growing process helps ensure the highest level of food security
Formats for inputs in our Growth Towers allow traditional horticultural equipment to be used
