Nursery Box. Development of technologies for the controlled growth of horticultural and medicinal plants.
The Nursery Box project has successfully created a prototype of a renewable energy modular plant nursery to maximise crop germination in hostile environments.
The study started with a series of tests at the University of Padua that validated irradiation protocols for the germination of specific plant species.
The University of Padua’s DAFNAE department carried out experiments within its phytotron which were applied in the Nursery Box prototype at the la Genovesa community. These experiments confirmed the system’s validity.
Reusing a disused container, the group of companies came up with a structure which germinated several cultures within the standard time frame regardless of the surrounding environmental conditions. The closed environment avoided the use of plant protection products and pesticides. This will meet the growing demand for a fungicide-free environment and organic products.
