The Future of Controlled Farming

Farming has always been a risky business. In recent years,  several overlapping crises have made us realize how critical it is to grow food locally. Countries should grow food in a controlled environment to increase food security.

In response to increasing food insecurity, commercial greenhouse projects are expanding.

Yields in a commercial greenhouse are 8-10 times higher compared to an open field. The yield of a Dutch tomato grower can be 50kg/m2. Growers produce crops all year round and reduce water and fertilizer by up to 40%. The greenhouse provides fresh local food more sustainably.

A greenhouse provides sustainable profit with a high yield while keeping operational costs low. One-third of the price per kilo is energy, and renewable energy, CO2, and heat from surrounding factories can increase the yield and make you produce more environment friendly.

Investing in high-tech greenhouses is an opportunity to improve long-term results.
