AgricUltra Advancements is to:
Developing innovative vertical farming products and technology
Assisting indoor growers with overall system design and LED lighting selection to maximize their yields and minimize the associated costs
With deep UV light we have increased the biomass and chemical performance of plants, including their taste, smell, texture, resilience and their eventual shelf life. Our technology virtually eliminates mold and pest infestations and reduces operating costs. We implement CO2-based refrigeration technology that supports cost savings of up to 60%* and innovative grow systems that minimize transplanting requirements. This reduces the number of operational steps, maximizes efficiencies, and optimizes growth strategies for specific plants and space requirements.

RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT
AgricUltra is constantly researching new techniques and technologies to innovate growing strategies to help increase throughput and reduce the growing cycle.
AgricUltra has entered into a research collaboration with Ryerson University and its newly established Ryerson Cannabis Innovation Complex, as well as the Department of Mechanical Engineering, to conduct Cannabis research. Learn more.
AgricUltra works directly with Sensor Electronic Technology, inc. (SETi) a subsidiary of Seoul Semiconductor and Seoul Viosys to develop advanced LED diode technology beyond the visible light spectrum.
Medical Cannabis Beta Sites
AgricUltra collaborates with licensed producers of medical Cannabis to evaluate our products, as well as demonstrate how the light spectrum influences cannabinoid development, metabolic pathways and terpenoid enhancement. This is an integral element in proving our research, as it closes the loop with our academic research partners. AgricUltra also provides engineering and consulting services to beta site partners to optimize test environments.
