About Us

In a world where population is growing rapidly, arable areas are decreasing, and freshwater is getting more and more scarce every year; we have to find better agricultural methods to grow more food in smaller areas and with less water.

Our Mission – Smart Agriculture for a Healthy Future

We develop smart applications of vertical and greenhouse farming to increase its yield, product range, and energy and water efficiency; and create practical, turnkey solutions for both agricultural producers and places of consumption to provide fresh and healthy food to people.

We are a team of agronomists, engineers, software developers, and more, who are passionate about the environment and the wellbeing of the people. Join us and let’s create a better feature together.

Our Vision – To Become a Global Driver of Agricultural Transformation

We envision a world in which everybody has access to fresh and healthy food in an economical and ecologically sustainable way. We aim to be a force that enables and drives farmers and companies to adopt more efficient and sustainable methods of farming and a more local approach to make that happen.
