iFarm Growtune
iFarm Growtune — a software platform for vertical farm management.
    • accurately and automatically plans and schedules plantings;
    • issues clear instructions on plant care for farm staff;
    • monitors work daily;
    • provides tools for remote climate control and production monitoring.
      The SaaS platform of iFarm Growtune:
      iFarm Growtune is a powerful self-learning system that is able to continuously improve its algorithms and guide you in growing crops at vertical farms with minimal human resources and within a precisely predicted time frame.
      Vertical farms
      iFarm Vertical Farm is a modular factory for urban indoor vertical farming with technologies to grow healthy plants all year round without using pesticides.
      Automated climate control, smart power control and our proprietary LED lighting ensure the plants are provided with everything necessary for rapid growth. As a result, the crop ripens twice as fast as outdoors.
      Vertical farms
      Our own software enables to continuously monitor the microclimate and manage every process on a farm — from demand forecasts to sales — in just a few clicks.
      It provides clear instructions for farm employees and monitors execution.
      We never stop conducting experiments with crops at our R&D labs, aiming at improving their quality characteristics and increasing productivity. Farm owners receive free updates of growth recipes through iFarm Growtune.
      Vertical farms can be easily scaled from 50 m² to 1000 m². To purchase a vertical farm, please send an inquiry and we will guide you through the necessary steps: a study tour, premises selection, payment for design and installation and, finally, the launch of the farm.
      The vertical farm offering includes:
      The vertical farm set for growing plants includes:

      • multi-tier iron structures;
      • equipment (LED lighting and power supplies for lamps; a fertigation unit; industrial osmotic installations for water treatment with trays and covers; IoT sensors; surveillance cameras, etc.);
      • germination chamber;
      • consumables (seeds, peat, fertilizers, cups, etc.)
      Site selection criteria
      The land plot should comply with the land use regulation (agriculture / food production)
      Floor bearing capacity 400 kg per m² in the growing area, 1000 kg per m² under water storage tanks
      Utility networks should be designed observing fire safety regulations and to maintain inner air exchange
      Sufficient electrical power with high availability
      Ceiling height of 4.5 - 6 meters is be the best option, however lower ceilings are possible
      High quality finishing as per HACCP requirements
      Sufficient water supply and sewer system. Septic systems are only allowed for small farms (under 100 square meters)
      Heating of any type suitable for regular human presence in cold climate zones
      Availability of access roads for lorries, loading bay, waste collection area
      Sandwich panel, cellular concrete, inflatable, or another type of building with insulation properties relevant to the climate zone
      It is preferable, if the land plot is within 1 hour driving distance from intended delivery points, have convenient traffic interchange and public transport accessibility
      iFarm Cropper
      The module has a showcase-like design, with fresh greens growing in pots on several tiers. More than 10 types of plants and herbs can be delivered every 2-3 days from a distributed network of iFarm vertical farms. Mature plants are ready for immediate use, younger ones will continue to grow inside the module.
      iFarm Cropper is a standalone module designed for retail chains, restaurants or for private use. It ensures ideal conditions for growing and storing plants and herbs. With iFarm Cropper you reduce the farm-to-fork distance to a minimum.
      To install the module you need access to electricity. The planting area and yield depend on the module size.
      Production and delivery time is up to 8-10 weeks.
      * Averaged yield calculation ~ 3kg / mo when the module is used for the full growing cycle.
      Vertical farms for growing strawberries
      We have already tried and tested 4 methods for the cultivation of strawberries at our labs: periodic flooding; drip irrigation using coconut substrate or coconut mats; aeroponics. On average, we pick 10-15 berries (25-35g each) per bush. The garden strawberry fruits 3 times per season.
      The garden strawberry is a very demanding crop, that is why we are carrying out experiments to find out the most effective way for its cultivation.
      We also experiment with growing our own seedlings and cloning bushes to breed a pure crop.
      Component parts
      Besides turnkey vertical farms we also supply accessories. You can purchase fertigation units (equipment for preparing and supplying plants with nutrition) and LED lamps, providing crops with an optimal spectrum of light.
      Led-lamps
      iFarm fertigation unit
      Led lamp specifications:
      Power — no more than 29 W
      SST — 3000 K
      Length 1.8 m, width 15 mm, height 6 mm, weight 200 g.
      LED full-spectrum lamps accelerate growth and development of plants, seedlings and fruits.
      The body type and material:
      aluminum, coated with anodized silver, transparent plastic lens.
      Retail price (from 10 pieces) — $75 *
      Wholesale price (from 1000 pieces) — $63 *
      * the price per lamp without power supply.
      The fertigation unit mixes water with mother liquors, which are added in portions using peristaltic pumps to obtain the desired composition of the nutrient solution.
      It consists of:
      • pump;
      • valves;
      • ЕС and pH sensors;
      • PVC pipes and fittings;
      • peristaltic dosing pumps;
      • electrical and low-current elements, main controller.
      One of the main advantages of the iFarm fertigation unit is the ability to mix any number of nutrient solutions for a variety of crops (salads, herbs, tomatoes, cucumbers, strawberries and edible flowers).
