Vertical farming provider included on shortlist

VERTICAL farming provider Intelligent Growth Solutions has been named as a finalist in the Royal Academy of Engineering's prestigious MacRobert Award, the gold standard for UK engineering innovation.

The vertical farming technology blends engineering, crop science and agronomy expertise to manage all environmental inputs for optimal growth, flavour and longevity. The system houses ‘towers’ of crops within an enclosed structure that controls all aspects of the growing environment – light, temperature, humidity, irrigation, nutrition and even air consumption – while ensuring no water wastage at any point in the cycle. 

The level of control provided by this innovation is believed to support growers and future growers by de-risking the early stages of crop cultivation, while supporting plant diversification through high-density, high-value indoor crop production.
