Urban Crop Solutions create fully-automated indoor farming systems with LED lighting. They produce local food hyper-efficiently on a small surface area, without using herbicides or pesticides.
LED lighting is the (not so) secret ‘weapon’ of Urban Crops Solutions. It emits little heat, so the lighting can be placed close to the plant. This takes up less space, allowing the plants to be positioned closer to each other. They can even be stacked: one square metre can suddenly offer more than four square metres of growing space.
The seeds in an Urban Crop Solutions system grow in a controlled climate, with adjusted supplements of minerals, and doses of extra light, temperature and CO2. The spectrum of LED lighting is set to the needs of each crop. Even the flavour can be managed using the right lighting algorithms. The fact that crops grow in water instead of soil means that herbicides or pesticides are no longer required.
Higher nutritional value
No use of herbicides and pesticides
Local production; transport is limited
Water consumption is just 5% compared with traditional growing methods
