Trichome, Israel's top medicinal crops facility, excels in vertical farming with skilled staff, high standards, and Grodan's dependable support, surpassing first-year expectations. Head Grower Steve Abboud aims for continuous success with Grodan.
In 2019, by combining expertise in technology and vertical farming, Swegreen launched an in-store ‘plant paradise’ to help even the smallest retailers and restaurants get fresh, great-tasting and nutritional vegetables onto consumers’ plates with minimum inputs and the smallest possible climate footprint. “Grodan is the best solution for us in our precisely controlled circular environment,” says Sepehr Mousavi, Chief Innovation Officer at Swegreen.
The first time he saw Grodan’s stone wool in action, it was a real eureka moment for Richard Sabin, co-founder and director of Biotecture. Since then, Grodan’s growing media have become a fundamental factor in the success of the UK’s leading living wall company, both in its dedicated nursery and in its patented BioPanels. “Working with Grodan gives us the reassurance we need to be able to give the necessary reassurances to our customers,” says Richard.
Sébastien Manelli uses GroSens to precisely manage the irrigation of his tomato crops. Fully convinced of the benefits of increasing the number of measurements to improve the precision of the tool even further, he told us all about how he combines the data collected from fixed sensors with that from a mobile one that passes through all his production areas each day.
“Grodan’s blocks support early root development and give me more peace of mind”
Swiss medicinal crops producer Grow Motion has been operational for less than a year, but already has ambitious plans for future expansion. Grow Motion is currently growing CBD (low THC content). Therefore it is not necessary to obtain an official licence in Switzerland. “Grodan’s solutions play a part in giving us a bigger and faster yield of high-quality flowers than we could achieve with soil,” says Benjamin Gutsch, who oversees the production facility. “And when we decide to scale up, we know that Grodan’s uniform growing media will give us perfect results every time.”
