Production of plants and food is no longer limited to traditional industrial greenhouses. If you have space, you can grow. Even underground with no natural sunlight.
Vertical Farming is all about making use of cubic meters instead of square meters – in vertically stacked layers, vertically inclined surfaces or integrated in other structures, such as in a skyscraper or a former warehouse.
Only the sky is the limit, as long as all environmental production factors are closely controlled. Be it control of humidity, temperature and CO2, integration of grow lights and irrigation and fertilizer mixing.

Create the ideal growth conditions with the correct technical installation
A Vertical Farming installation is not necessarily effective in itself – the growth conditions must be ideal. Control of grow lights, of the environment in the production area, and fertigation is central to achieve the optimal yield from production.
DGT by Senmatic’s technologies enable 360° control of your full installation. With numerous customization options you can create the ideal growth conditions adapted to your exact setup and your cultures with electronic climate controls, our effective irrigation and fertilizer mixers, and superior quality LED grow lights.
Grow lights have never been more important
New production methods require new and smarter solutions. Especially grow lights have never been more important. With LED grow lights of superior quality, you can make every day a sunny day without being dependent on natural light.
That is why we have developed Grow Verti, an LED fixture designed especially for Vertical Farming. The ultra slim top light solution makes even better use of your space, enabling you to produce more.
Another solution is our FL100 LEDs, which can also be installed in Vertical Farming productions.
Can technology make your workday easier?
We continuously investigate how integration of technology can improve our customers’ production. Perhaps a camera for the upper layers in a vertical farm would make it easier to control plant growth in layers, you cannot reach or see with the naked eye? Grow Verti is IoT-ready and we are more than willing to help integrate technology that will make your workday easier.

Advantages and pitfalls of vertical farming
Vertical farming has grown to become a world-wide concept since the early 00s. The basic premise is simple: Instead of spreading production across endless acres of land, horticultural productions are facilitated in vertical layers, requiring far smaller areas to produce the same amount of crop.
A vertical farming setup brings advantages not only for the grower, but for the environment as well. Thus, vertical farming is revolutionizing parts of the horticultural and agricultural industries and has the potential to be the preferred production method of the future. Despite the benefits of Vertical Farming, there are also pitfalls to be aware of before establishing a Vertical Farming production - and this article informs about both the benefits of producing this way - and at the same time it draws your attention to what to be aware of.
Innovative greenhouses inside shipping containers
This new type of greenhouse is created inside of shipping containers that are equipped with LED grow lights, fertilizer mixers and climate control from Senmatic. This concept of greenhouses is called BoxXLand, and creates a unique and adjustable climate to efficiently grow a wide range of cultures e.g. lettuce and herbs.
