Compact 96

This AVF+ Compact is perfect for growers who want to start with vertical farming or upgrade to their first (larger) vertical farm. Size of Compact depends on your particular situation.

Compact 960

The largest standalone automated vertical farm available at Artechno Growsystems. Growing on a larger scale made possible with the AVF+ Compact 960. Expand your production by adding multiple Compact cells.

Factory

Any size of AVF+ Compact combined with (automated) process equipment, we refer to as AVF+ Factory. The process equipment allows the vertical farm to be automatically operated from seeding to harvesting. 

AVF+ Compact

AVF+ Compact is a vertical farming system designed for growing crops on a medium to large scale. Inside the Compact's climate cell, the perfect conditions for crop growth are created by precise control of growing variables like light, climate, irrigation, and nutrients. To top it off, the growth cycles are fully automated.

Medium to large size vertical farm for
growing a wide variety of plants and crops

Flexible scalable

Whether you’d like to start with a smaller manual farm and expand or go big on growing surface and automation, AVF+ Compact scales to your needs. We configure to your needs. All without growth interference.

Integrated solutions

Supplied with everything needed for vertical farming and larger scale crop production. Controlled from one application.

Low labor expenses

An AVF+ Compact by itself is fully automated, the cultivation of the crop takes place without human intervention. You only need a small amount of personnel to operate any process equipment within the farm.

Complete climate

AVF+ Compact features a climate cell that allows you to create the ideal climate for crops to grow strong, healthy and fast.

Grow the best crops all year round

Inside the Compact’s climate cell is where the real growing magic happens. Under bright led-lights, specialized for growing, a sea of crops are growing with hydroponics. Climate variables, light, water, and nutrients - the essential ingredients for perfect growth can be adjusted and controlled to establish the perfect growing circumstances for any crop. To make sure the output is consistant in quality all year round.

The cell itself is closed off from the outside world to ensure that the climate stays the way it’s intended and to keep out parasites, viruses, pests, and bacteria that can threaten the health of the growing crops. AVF+ Compact has achieved the highest level in Bio Security.

 

Operating a Compact is simple and straightforward through its user interface, which lets you control the climate (temperature, humidity, and CO2) and nutrients per Compact cell and light intensity, light spectrum, and irrigation per section within the Compact cell.

Healthy, strong, and fast-growing crops require an environment in which everything they need is just right, creating that ideal environment requires a balance of climate, light, and nutrients. With AVF+ Compact you’ve now got the power to give a plant the best it can get, all year round!

Feature 1 Compact

Feature #1

Get the best out of each layer

Optimization of floor space is the name of the game in vertical farming and with our AVF+ Compact you can go up to 10 layers, so you can use each square meter efficiently.

Whether you’d like to grow just one crop variety or more, you are free to decide. Every Compact cell can grow up to 10 different crops with the same climate specifications.

Light recipes (intensity, spectrum, and time on/off) are managed for each individual layer, making it possible to have up to 10 different light recipes at one time.
Feature 2 Compact

Feature #2

The best a plant can get

Inside the climate cell the climate variables for temperature, humidity, airflow, and CO2 can all be controlled through the FarmOS user interface, to create the perfect climate conditions for crop research.

A water management unit carefully prepares the nutrient solution by mixing in the right ingredients and adding (recycled) water. Every layer is served the exact amount of water needed and of all water used, up to 99% is recycled.

The closed-off climate cell ensures that harmful viruses, pesticides, and insects will be kept out of the cell for the benefit of the plant.
Feature 3 Compact

Feature #3

On-demand growing

Know exactly when you have your crop output. Through extensive research, we know exactly how many days it takes for each crop to be ready to harvest. This allows you to keep the logistics to your end customer as efficiently as possible.

Do you temporarily want to grow more or less? With the AVF+ you are able to adjust output at the push of a button. So that you can always continue to produce according to supply and demand.

Want to process a custom order for a different crop? If your growing climate allows, you can easily add crops to your current growing process. To ensure that you are most flexible.
Feature 4 Compact

Feature #4

Fully automated growing

Your AVF+ Compact is made in such a way that during the growing process, no one can enter the cell. This way we ensure the high standards of the plants. Your crop will appear again on the output side when it is ready for the next growing phase (or harvest).

Crops often require multiple cycles in the AVF+ Compact. In fact, for many crops, it is necessary to set it wider, as it grows. This ensures optimal use of space horizontally and vertically. Resulting in the plant growing better and stronger.

Have you conducted your crop research in the AVF+ Junior? Then you can easily transfer the results to the AVF+ Compact with our FarmOS. Grow identically to your research with the push of a button.
