A modern high-tech vertical farm is an artificial enclosed environment that must accommodate the varied preferences and needs of different plants simultaneously. For experts in AgTech and farmers, creating ideal conditions for growing different types of greens in the same space is a complex problem to tackle.
iFarm, a technology company
enabling IT-driven farming in controlled environments, has overcome the challenge and developed a universal technology iFarm Multigreens for growing leafy greens, baby leaves, microgreens, spicy herbs, and edible flowers - all in one environment.
Thanks to a new irrigation method and enhanced planting density, iFarm Multigreens allows farmers to achieve a higher yield of a broader variety of ultra-fresh crispy lettuces and tasty greens when compared to previous iFarm technologies.
In this article, agricultural technologist Nikolai Podvigin, explains how the new iFarm Multigreens technology works.
