Growing edible plants at large scales is not an easy enterprise, which can be both technically and financially demanding. On top of that farm owners face the challenge of hiring highly qualified staff whose salaries can constitute up to 60% of all expenditures.
By reducing the amount of work that needs to be done manually, iFarm helps to decrease labour costs by 20%, thus lowering the end-cost of each kg of produce.
How do we achieve that?
We have built a team of specialists in agriculture and agrochemistry, crop protection, production managers and automation engineers. Their expertise is available to all iFarm clients in the form of a library with plant growth recipes. Combined with a set of online-tools, it enables smooth management of vertical farms of any brand.
Big Data collected from farms all over the world helps iFarm's artificial intelligence (AI) to constantly improve its algorithms. It factors in data from IoT-devices, computer vision, production and sales reports.

about any deviations
iFarm subscribers pay $0,75 - $1,5 a month for 1 m² of growing area and gain access to all iFarm Growtune features to ensure better yield.
All maintenance emergencies are dealt with at no additional cost
Our experienced technicians, agriculture and plant protection specialists have access to all operational data of a farm and will help to resolve any issue. They can log in remotely to check: parameters of the environment, cameras monitoring the plants, grower's checklists, warehouse items, planting and shipment schedules.
Fully automated processes
Our cloud-based solution allows to access and control all the controllers and sensors at the farm remotely. It enables to manage factors like temperature, humidity, lighting and CO2, irrigation regime, nutrient content and concentration.
If you decide to build a vertical farm with an iFarm technology, iFarm Growtune SaaS platform will be already connected to the automation system.
For vertical farm owners
If you already have a vertical farm and use a third-party automation system, our specialists can audit its features and components, install insufficient equipment and connect it to iFarm Growtune.
Our SaaS platform supports most of the existing automation systems. We develop API that allows to connect to the majority of commonly used sensors and controllers.
