The Habitat
Powered By Sprout AI

Sprout AI’s cultivation technology is contained within a sealed “habitat” that includes LED lighting to minimize power consumption, advanced air filtration and HVAC, as well as a water recycle system recovering 100%.

Each habitat is self-contained allowing for staggered growth plans, which results in greater labour efficiency.

The separate habitats also mitigate external and cross-contamination risk and allow for multi-crop farms.

Aeroponic Driven

Sprout AI uses aeroponics whereby the root is suspended in the air and misted with purified, nutrient-rich water. Aeroponics uses the least amount of water (vs hydro and aquaponic), has the lowest risk of plant contamination, and provides the roots of the plant with the most optimal way to absorb nutrients.

The AI Behind
Sprout AI

Sprout AI’s module learns over time to optimize grow conditions.
Significant data collection from habitats across the world further intensifies the machine learning capabilities.

50+ Measurable Variables

Including air temperature and quality, humidity, water temperature, nutrient level and quality, light duration and intensity, and C02 duration and intensity.

Repeatable Grow Plans

Optimized ”grow plans”, can be replicated in other habitats, even if that habitat is on the other side of the world.

Proven ERP System

Uses TheraCann’s One System One Solution (OS2) enterprise resource planning and compliance software providing for a food grade and EU GMP compliant indoor vertical farming solution, and already approved for use in 7 countries for GMP compliance.

Scalable Habitats

The habitats are moveable and modular, resulting in significant reductions in set-up time and capital cost
Can be scaled like building blocks and can easily expand or shrink to meet local demand.

Sizing

One habitat is a 10’ x 5’ x 6’ high unit, one row is 5 habitats, one rack is 15 habitats, and one stack is 75 habitats.

Rolling Racks

Reduces fixed aisle space, allowing for a substantial increase to the cubic cultivation area.

Habitats Can Be Installed Nearly Anywhere

The Sprout AI Habitat can be set up in any structure around the world that meets, or can meet, food grade requirements, mitigating the need for a special building to be constructed, and can take advantage of virtually any vacant indoor space.

Reduced Capex

The self-contained design of Sprout AI shifts the burden of HVAC, air filtration and lighting to the habitat itself, significantly reducing capital expenditures, the risk of stranded assets, and project commencement cycle time. There is no need to retrofit a building, or build a new structure, to accommodate the increased load of a vertical farm.

Improved Air Quality

Indoor hydroponic vertical farms, such as “vertical walls” or walls-of-green”, that are not self-contained, risk high indoor humidity levels, condensation and the risk of total crop failure due to contamination.

Efficient Space Usage

Container farms (in existing sea cans as an example) are typically narrow and require an aisle which limits the cultivation area. Some container farms use custom made mechanical racks to maximize the cultivation area, but this adds to the capital cost.

The Output

Sprout AI’s habitats are designed to manage multiple crops and, on average, a minimum of 32 plants can be grown per habitat.

Up to 42” high versus 4 - 6” high

The habitats can grow plants up to 42” high, whereas many of the other systems available can only handle plants up to 4” or 6” high, providing the grower access to a greater selection of crop outputs.

Leafy Plants

Lettuce, spinach, chard, arugula

Micro Greens

Oregano, basil, rosemary, chives, rocket

Berries/Fruit

Strawberries, black berries, tomatoes

Fungi
