North Shore, Coachella Valley, Southern California - Herbs, 2 Ha
The southern climate of California is ideal for the greenhouse company of herbal growers, Leo and Suzette Overgaag. They produce various popular herb varieties such as rosemary, sage and thyme and basil using a Hortiplan MGS. For their newly built 10.000 m² project, they utilized the expertise and close consultation of Hortiplan. Compared to their previous installations, the MGS from Hortiplan has a greater return and efficiency. This is due to very specific automation and to much larger plant densities.
