COST-EFFECTIVE
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.
iFarm Growtune is built and optimized for the growth of a wide variety of leafy-greens, herbs, microgreens

INTELLIGENT
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.

Monitors
lighting parameters, nutrient content and concentration, microclimate, plant growth rate, farm staff activities

Spots
inconsistencies in plant growth at an early stage

Optimizes
plant growth recipes and net cost of produce

Alerts
about any deviations

AFFORDABLE
Subscription-based software
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.
FLEXIBLE
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.

Turnkey solution
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.
How does it work?
Step 1. Choose crops to grow
A library of more than 120 plant growth recipes is continually updated with formulations tailor-made for vertical farms.

The plant growth recipes consider all the following vital parameters and procedures to ensure that every crop is neatly managed:
temperature, humidity, CO2*
irrigation and fertigation regime*
nutrient content and concentration*
lighting schedule*
growth cycles*
interactive plant care guides for farm staff


Applied automatically depending on the volume of the planned seeding
*
Step 2. Plan your seeding
Choose the farm, method of harvesting (automatic or manual) and the desired volume of end product

The system offers planting and harvesting dates with consideration of current and forecasted use of farm capacities

If you manage a few farms, the system can suggest how to distribute the order among them
Step 3. Confirm your order
Automatically calculate the end price of your products based on the library of recommended and seasonal prices

Instantly choose buyers from the catalogue of loyal customers

Create a profile of a new client

Confirm the order with production site
Step 4. Manage your plans
Give the planting to another client

Distribute the planting among a number of clients

Adjust the harvesting dates

Move the planting

Detect and remove defective plants
Step 5. Monitor the production
Automatically created plant care and farm maintenance guides and to-do lists
Available in the form of checklists with detailed instructions for every procedure
Task reminders
Track task execution, with detailed journaling of the environment parameters
Create additional tasks when needed
Complete control over your environments. Emergency alerts.
Step 6. Plan the yield
All existing and scheduled plantings are visually represented in a Gantt Chart

See the capacity utilization of a production site in a detailed interactive plan for any given day

The plan contains up-to-date data about the vital environment parameters, shelf sizes, growing racks heights, grow cycles and the actual number of crops on the shelves
Use of cutting-edge technologies Computer vision / Machine learning / Artificial Intelligence
iFarm Growtune is based on an adaptive protocol that employs computer vision, machine learning, all the data about thousands of plants collected from a distributed network of farms and also open data.

This protocol can determine the plant weight, any growth deviations and pathologies. It allows to provide recommendations for further corrections to farm staff or to manually adjust the settings to ensure better results.
Reduce workload
Monitor plants 24/7 with drones, cameras or smartphones
Make sure your plants are healthy
Track growth dynamics of each and every plant:
  • detect any deviations at an early stage
  • identify plant diseases automatically
  • determine plant weight and maturity by image
    Manage everything online
    React promptly to any changes in growth cycles:
    • notifications sent to urge employees to act
    • set microclimate parameters and adjust plant growth formulas
    • get help from our smart chatbot assistant
