CubicFarms is pleased to announce the sale of three Control Rooms to Terramera. Terramera is a British Columbia-based company on a mission to reduce global synthetic pesticide use by 80 percent by 2030 with its revolutionary Actigate technology platform, named a 2020 World-Changing Idea by Fast Company.
In June, CubicFarms offered its Control Room system for sale to growers requiring complete control over the growing environment that is so crucial for high crop yields and quality. Each CubicFarms Control Room is assembled inside a proprietary stainless steel, fully insulated growing chamber with the option to customize features such as lighting, automated irrigation and nutrient delivery, providing full climate control for temperature, humidity and carbon dioxide levels. The system has a variety of sensors available, all of which can be remotely monitored and controlled.
Dr. Travis Good, Terramera's Chief Technology Officer commented, "We required a closed space with precise controls to isolate each environmental variable and produce uniform, plentiful and high-quality plants for our research. CubicFarms' Control Room system is an ideal solution and helps us scale our Actigate technology with the goal of dramatically reducing the use of synthetic pesticides in agriculture."
CubicFarms CEO Dave Dinesen commented, "We are pleased to call Terramera a customer as we share the same strategic investor, Ospraie Ag Science, and vision to transform how food is grown with the use of leading-edge technology. Terramera is a natural fit for a synergistic partnership in the future as both companies look to develop our machine learning and AI capabilities to further advance our respective technologies."
