ViVi the Method
With the revolutionary ViVi method, the future of growing crops is here! In essence, ViVi offers a highly innovative method that can be used to grow crops in a highly reliable, sustainable and efficient manner. This process is fully automated and can be executed by anyone, anywhere.
Using the ViVi method, a uniform product can be cultivated completely independent of the local climate and without the need for expert knowledge of the breeder. Besides that, using the solutions ViVi offers, the risks associated with growing plants in a conventional greenhouse can be reduced to an absolute minimum.
Key in the the ViVi growing method are the innovative semi-closed packagings in which the crops are grown. The ViViPak packagings are the greenhouses of the future: compact, fully controlled, mini-greenhouses.
In the packagings, the crops are grown in a multi-layer system under LED lights. Preferably, this is done in the ViCabin, which is a highly space-efficient growing chamber that offers the perfect growing conditions for the crops. As mentioned, the
processs is fully automated, thus labor costs can be reduced tremendously.
Due to the fully controlled environment and the sterile conditions, ViVi is one of the cleanest cultivation methods available. The packagings, or mini-greenhouses as we like to call them are, available in two sizes; one to fit a 48- and one to fit a 126 hole tray. These containers have been designed in such a manner that risks of infections or other impeding factors can be reduced to an absolute minimum. Due to the closed environment of the containers, a minimum of water and fertilizer is required and no pest control is needed. There is also no need for additional watering once the packagings have been sealed.
ViVi develops growing methods for tissue culture, breeders and companies that produce fresh produce. In these areas the ViVi system can be used for both R&D applications as well as commercial production systems. ViVi has three divisions, each with their own specialty, namely ViViPak, ViViLab and ViViTec.
