growing top-quality tomatoes in a indoor vertical farm
In a few decades, indoor city farms or vertical farms have become popular for producing healthy food year-round in urban environments and harsh climates.
we began a long-term series of research studies on DFT tomatoes at our OptiClimatefarm R&D Center.
To develop an effective DFT indoor farm, we built on our years of know-how and experience from both greenhouse growers and vertical farms.
Over the past decade, tomato production has been optimized with high-tech automation and data management. We can use this tremendous amount of knowledge and adapt and implement the same vision and technology in an indoor farm.
The most critical differences between a greenhouse and an indoor DFT system, are perhaps that the latter uses active cooling and dehumidification instead of venting and uses only LED lighting instead of mostly sunlight.
It is by excluding the effects of seasonal differences in temperature, humidity and light that the optimal growing environment can be created to produce a premium product year-round.
HVACD Climate optimization, selecting the right varieties and defining growth recipes
Growing successfully indoors is all about finding the right balance between light, temperature,humidity and yield and planting density.
Growing the right varieties can minimize handling and labor costs
This makes them ideal for vertical farmers who may not have a lot of experience in growing a certain variety of tomato and the reduced labor costs will increase the city farm’s profitability.
