Butter green lettuce almost ready for harvest at our R&D centre in London

Pleased to see the results, as our Butter green lettuce is almost ready for harvest after undergoing a new set of growth trials under different conditions at our R&D centre in London.

To achieve maximum yield and quality metrics the fundamental variable to control is plant density by stage, maximising plants per m2 but allowing each plant enough space to grow. Our autonomous, moving systems allow us to do this with very low OPEX and a high degree of quality control and monitoring, which is non-invasive.

Our plant science team, which is one of the biggest and most experienced in our sector, is also achieving breakthroughs in yield through light staging and wavelength manipulation, with a net REDUCTION in power consumption but net INCREASE of up to 43% in total usable biomass.

Now that’s science!
