Description:Next to their office in Poeldijk (the Netherlands), Certhon is has its own research facility: the Certhon Innovation Centre. Certhon is conducting pioneering research on optimizing the technology of growing without daylight since two years. The facility accommodate eight indoor farms where research will be done continuously to develop the next generation cultivation system.

Demand for safe and healthy food, which is sustainable and local produced, is increasing worldwide. This creates a higher demand for indoor growing solutions on a large scale. However, growing in an indoor farm requires other cultivation methods than growing in a traditional greenhouse. As biggest change, compared to traditional growing methods, the outside climate will not be leading to your growing method but indoor climate will be defined by the available techniques.

In the Certhon Innovation Centre, the cultivation method developed by Certhon for the daylight-free cultivation of vegetables, fruit and ornamental plants is being developed in an area of 240 m2 in six indoor farms (two nursery cells, three flex cells and one high wire cell). In March 2018, the first plants were placed in the Innovation Centre. This was the start of various new studies on crops that Certhon has expectations for in different climates, humidity and light recipes, as well as tests with lighting, sensors and hardware and software.
