Air and water quality moitoring
Tower Farm R&D has been active in indoor vertical agriculture since 2017. Tower Farm combines urban and vertical farming to open the door to the future of edible and medicinal plants. The “Growin” unit is made of a set of four vertical rotating towers with 1200 to 1800 growing holes. This fully automatic and digital management system controls and optimizes the cultivation process of both plants and roots. Our main achievement to date was the launch of our semi-industrial experimentation site on 200 sqm, in the suburbs of Paris, in January 2019. Using our patented Growin technology, we’ve had great success in growing and cultivating a wide variety of plants such as Basil, Thyme, Mint, Persil, Coriander, Baby Leaves, Micro Leaves, Lemon Balm and more. As part of our ongoing R&D activities, we are continuously developing more growing protocols for additional vegetables, fruits and medicinal plants.
For the past year, our R&D facility in Saint-Nom-la-Bretèche (78), France, has been working on perfecting the optimal growth parameters of several plants without any pesticides, all year long, and with high and uniform quality. This is achieved regardless of local weather, without the use of any soil and all the while saving over 95% of the water usually required for growing such plants. Since October 2019, as a commercial experimentation, Tower Farm provides fresh plants to 5 different customers in the Paris region.
