We understand how technology and plant physiology should go hand in hand in indoor farming. We have learned a lot, especially from the mistakes we have made in the last 12 years, and from the ones that others have made.
We merge technology and plant physiology, apply physics, maths and chemistry. In our indoor farms we use a unique combination of plenums, laminar airflow, cooling methods and humidifying & dehumidifying technologies – all for plant-driven reasons. Some of the eye-openers from past experience:
1. each crop is an adiabatic cooling system on its own;
2. each LED system easily produces so much heat that cooling the air unintentionally causes huge dehumidification;
3. the effect of more or less air flow, in combination with humidity, has a huge effect on the opening of the stomata and thus on the evaporation of water and the uptake of carbon dioxide.
