Location:USA
Surface:Three indoor farms
Cultivation:Research
Description:In collaboration with WPS, Certhon built a total of four spaces at Dow Agriculture Science, of which three are now in use as indoor farms. The three indoor farms, completely built of stainless steel, are equipped with five layers with LED lighting, with the possibility to extend the number of layers to a maximum of ten. These were taken into operation at the end of 2016.

In collaboration with WPS, Certhon built a total of four spaces at Dow Agriculture Science, of which three are now in use as indoor farms. The three indoor farms, completely built of stainless steel, are equipped with five layers with LED lighting, with the possibility to extend the number of layers to a maximum of ten. These were taken into operation at the end of 2016.

Certhon has ensured the climate systems and the irrigation and electricity installations in the indoor farms. These are used for research into pesticides. The base of Dow Agriculture Sciences lies in the chemical resources. With the indoor farms, they achieve plant growing from a continuous and equal quality, after which the plants go to different researchers. Advantages compared to growing in a traditional greenhouse are cleaner plants, continuous quality and faster cultivation. They also need less staff to achieve the same results.

Dow Agriculture Sciences is very satisfied with the result and the associated cooperation with Certhon. Partly for this reason, there is a good chance this collaboration will continue: There are plans to arrange the fourth space as an indoor farm and immediately installing automation in all other indoor farms.
