We are now able to balance the growing parameters for each kind of crop, achieving the best possible quality, taste and nutritional levels.
The sugars that plants produce through photosynthesis, are first being used to stay alive. Generally, plants produce more sugars which allows them to grow and make new biomass, quantitative growth. In traditional farming plants can hardly produce more sugars than that.
Indoor farming realizes much higher levels of photosynthesis and sugar production. This opens up new possibilities for qualitative growth; plants are now able to make the compounds we need in healthy food: the secondary metabolites. All in a controllable manner, creating the quality we want, when we want it – on a level rarely seen before.
