Advantages of iFarm vertical farm technologies
  • Always-fresh produce
    Vertical farms can be situated in urban areas so that produce can be delivered to retailers and consumers when it's at its freshest
  • Pesticide-free
    The closed air cycle and controlled microclimate inside the farm avoid the use of non-biological pesticides, herbicides and acaricides
  • Fast scaling
    Farms can be built in any configuration from 500 to more than 20 000 sq.m. It takes just weeks to design, build, and start growing
  • Saving space
    Vertical tiers maximize space. With no need for soil, farms can be installed in industrial premises, warehouses and workshops
  • Environmental friendliness
    Short supply chains drastically reduce carbon footprints, and controlled environment agriculture methods don't impact the ecology
  • Cost savings
    Production, processing, warehousing and storage in one location cuts expenditure. With iFarm Growtune software, no highly-qualified employees are needed
  • Easy cultivation
    Process automation and farm management software reduces the risks of a vertical farming business and maximizes yields
  • Water saving
    iFarm vertical farms consume 90-95% less water than traditional agriculture and translucent greenhouses
