Container LED farms are practical in their mobility and robustness. They offer the ideal solution for research and development, as pilot units or to grow crops on unique or temporary locations. We build LED farms in new or refurbished shipping containers. We ship container farms world wide.

Custom made horticulture or plant research units

Our container farms offer all our techniques in just a few square meters. You can grow crops in up to 6 layers. Are you looking to work with floating rafts or rather ‘ebb and flow’ technique? Do you want warm days and cold nights? What is the ideal humidity for your crop? Which light intensity do you need? We study each container farm project separately to tailor the optimal solution to your needs.

So what does one container produce? This depends on the choice of crops of course. Yields of 2-4kg per square meter for ‘one round’ are possible. This round could be 10-15 days for micro greens and baby leaves. Depending on storage and other needs a container provides apx. 50-60m² of growing space. Just calculate your produced volume…
