Unique results

A modular concept

The indoor farms are completely built of stainless steel, and equipped with five layers with LED lighting, with the possibility to extend the number of layers to a maximum of ten. All the cultivation tables can be moved.

Automatic shift of irrigation and light

Irrigation and light automatically moves with the cultivation table when it is placed in a new position in the climate room.

A minimal temperature difference

The climate chamber is constructed in such way that the temperature difference is never bigger than 1.0 degrees Celsius in the entire climate chamber.

Always the right circumstances

Each cultivation table can be irrigated and illuminated separately and has its own irrigation recipe. Besides, irrigation and light automatically moves with the cultivation table when it is placed in a new position in the climate room.

Better results with less resources

With our indoor farms, Corteva realizes a continuous and equal quality of plant growing. They not only have cleaner plants and a faster cultivation, they also need less staff to achieve the same results.
