This system is optimized for head lettuce production. The automated growing system is designed for growing head lettuces and herbs that are sold with their root ball (living lettuce) in a pot or as cut head lettuce.
The system utilizes a highly efficient plant tray-table and 63–100 mm wide growing gutters which allow for the use of multiple types of growing media. The most common system set up has one single transplanting step during the entire growing cycle.

The production of lettuces and herbs starts with the seedling production. Plant trays are
filled with growing substrate such as peat or rockwool. Typically, our systems use paper
or plastic pots inside the tray to ensure safe and efficient transplanting.
