Our Technology and Equipment
Affinor’s vertical growing technology was designed from the ground up, which incorporates real needs of the plants. By studying the physiological relationships between light and leaf area, light interception, temperature, humidity, nutritional requirements and growth speed, Affinor's Vertical Farming technology creates the specific needs that plants require for every stage of their development. By integrating our systems including: mathematical crop modeling, plant physiology and state of the art vertical growing equipment, Affinor’s cultivation systems are the most advanced integration of technology and plant physiology, resulting in high quality products at minimal cost. Affinor's technology is unique by offering mechanical pollination that is integrated into the equipment. By replicating insect visits, strawberry production can increase by pollinating 100% of the fruit sets and creating large desirable fruit shapes.
Controlled Vertical Farming Technology
Affinor's indoor controlled vertical farming technology is the only growing system that can offer true perpetual year round harvesting. Unlike other vertical systems, the equipment is specifically designed so the plant moves horizontally in phases from seedling to harvest. In each phase, the plant will be exposed to a unique micro-climate, providing an optimal environment based on the plant’s growth cycle requirements, allowing them to achieve their full potential. All plants are grown in their natural medium, organic soil, without the use of chemicals or pesticides.
Greenhouse Vertical Farming Technology
Affinor's greenhouse vertical growing technology was specifically designed to dramatically increase plant density and overall production within a greenhouse or nursery. By utilizing the vertical space not typically used in greenhouse farms, Affinor’s technology can often triple production or more depending on vertical height.
Designed to allow maximum sunlight penetration through proprietary “off-set” radial arms combined with continual rotation of the equipment, crops will mature quicker with increased quality. All plants are grown in their natural medium, organic soil, with mechanical pollination incorporated into the technology.
Crops and Products
Designed for versatility, many crops can be cultivated, including leafy greens, flowering fruits and floral products. It is the only technology incorporating mechanical pollination for fruiting berries ensuring 100 percent fruit sets and high quality product.
