The small scale multi-layered device is based on Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA) technology and reduces the water consumption by up to 98% and the fertiliser consumption by up to 60% compared to traditional agriculture.  At the same time 2-3 times faster growth rates than outdoors are achieved, increasing both vitamin and mineral content of the grown plants. The device produces enough vegetables and herbs to satisfy the daily demand of two people. Agrilution also distributes all the necessary refill supplies such as seeds and fertiliser to offer the customers a “complete vertical farming package”.
