Scots VF firm IGS to deepen North American roots

Edinburgh-headquartered Intelligent Growth Solutions (IGS), which specialises in vertical farming, has chosen Loveland, Colorado, for its expansion into North America.

The organisation, which describes itself as an “agricultural infrastructure” company, designs, produces and maintains vertical farming technology that it says enables indoor growing anywhere, eliminates the need for pesticides or fungicides, and can lower the carbon footprint of food-growing by locating farms closer to the point of consumption or production, as well as reducing water use by up to 95 per cent.
