Horticulture and greenhouse technology & innovation

We at Priva are driven by technological innovation in horticulture. Developing greenhouse technology for controlled environments is our passion. We offer custom greenhouse solutions, for any type of greenhouse operation, regardless of country, climate or crop.

Horticulture technology

Modern greenhouse technology is changing horticulture as we know it - empowering you to produce fresh, safe and healthy food in a smart and sustainable way. All-encompassing control over crop conditions, at any time, and from anywhere, is proving to optimize production, maximize yield, improve quality, and reduce the cost of resources like water, energy and labor. Integrated greenhouse hardware, software and cloud services enable you to monitor and manage your settings comprehensively.

There are various types of new horticulture technology available in this day and age. Varieties of process computers, wireless sensors, robots, and cloud-based software with smart interfaces are being used to automate systems within greenhouses. Through these types of digital innovation, greenhouse processes are optimized to create the perfect climate conditions. The result: exponential growth, for your crop and your business.

Accurate greenhouse control

Grow a profitable crop with less effort

Enabling growers to achieve optimal crop growth is what we do at Priva. We understand that the better processes are handled, the more the crop, the greenhouse and the business can benefit. That understanding, combined with 60 years of experience in hi-tech greenhouse technology, is coming together in our automation systems. We offer a total solution for greenhouse innovation, one that links all processes and systems in horticultural businesses, allowing growers to accurately control their greenhouse facilities.

Smart (re)use of water

Handle available precious water resources in a smarter way

Fresh water is the most important prerequisite for growing food, but also one of the scarcest natural resources we have. It is predicted that by 2025, most countries in Africa and West Asia will face severe water scarcity due to increasing population and demand for water. The key to these challenges is smart (re)use of water. Now, and in the future, greenhouse technology will continue to support the secure use of water and the recycling of wastewater. Our greenhouse farming technology enables our customers to optimally control their water flows and to recirculate it safely.

Efficient labor with greenhouse innovation

Helping to achieve greater labor efficiency

For horticultural companies, labor is a huge cost item, but also a very important asset. The availability of labor is getting more and more limited and thus challenging. Today, it is already hard to find enough skilled people for crop work, and in several parts of the world, wages are increasing rapidly. With Priva’s greenhouse innovation solutions, we help horticultural companies to achieve greater labor efficiency. We do that by providing solutions to reduce the amount of labor per hectare and where possible, automating the processes within the horticultural business. We even go as far as robotization, with our Kompano deleafing robot.

Sustainable energy use

Creating ways to minimize energy consumption

Energy is one of today’s biggest challenges. It is one of the largest cost items in protected crops. Retailers and governments are setting new standards for sustainable production. Greenhouse agriculture technology  has come a long way with regards to energy efficiency, but the interests of the old economy stand in the way of new business models. As a result, we depend too much on fossil fuels, causing pollution and exhaustion of the earth’s resources. While the energy transition is picking up speed, we can already provide smart technology to manage the grower’s energy sources more efficiently, including sustainable energy sources like geothermal, solar and biomass energy.
