As experts in horticultural technologies, we are your competent partner in all aspects of modern and forward-looking plant cultivation and beyond. We have committed ourselves to the development of modern cultivation technologies. Therefor, we invest our knowledge and experience. The transfer of the latest developments to the plant kingdom requires, above all, interdisciplinary knowledge as well as an understanding of the herbal way of life.

Our strengths lie in the conception, application and monitoring of research projects as well as in the subsidies for subsidies from state, federal and EU funds. Our company has a flexible team, which can quickly get involved in every topic. Furthermore, we are connected to a large network of companies and institutions, which are always used when necessary. For your project we convey our knowledge and support you from planning to implementation upon request.

Consulting

The exposure of plants and plant populations in protected cultivation, vitro cultivation, interior landscaping or in the private sector is becoming increasingly important worldwide. In particular, the LED technology promises, in contrast to conventional exposure, energy and cost savings. New findings from the scientific community show that light can be used as controlling growth factor in crop production and certain techniques, such as chopper lights, allow reducing the power consumption again.

Germany and Europe became one of the most innovative areas in the world in recent decades. The promotion of technological, scientific and interdisciplinary innovation is an essential part of the promotion policy of the federal, state and European government. In addition, it is possible to obtain support from foundations and other institutions. Through a variety of funding programs in the most varied orientations, it often is not easy to make the right choice the first time.
