Our Indoor GrowHow Department offers the following services:
Based on our conducted research, we can assess business cases in the form of a feasibility study for a certain crop or cultivation system. The conducted research is used as a program of requirements for a Project Design. Based on the empirical cultivation data and the Project Design, we can assess a business case that examines the costs of construction versus revenues for an indoor project.
For specific research questions, we offer Agronomic Research in our Indoor GrowHow Facilities. Our Plant Specialists can carry out the desired research in collaboration with the client.
