20th Annual Chilliwack Agriculture Tour

QuantoTech is featured in the 20th Annual Chilliwack Agriculture Tour. The virtual tour was hosted and sponsored by Baker Newby LLP, Farm Credit Canada, Community Futures, RBC, the Chilliwack Agricultural Commission, and Chilliwack Economic Partners.

We are greatful to have been included in this year’s virtual agriculture tour and have been so pleased with all of the support we have received from the City of Chilliwack.

Initial Qfarm Results Prove Price-parity with Mexico and California on Produce Sold through Northern Greens

QuantoTech both operates its farms and designs and builds its own proprietary equipment. This vertical integration eliminates the costs and inefficiencies of outsourced manufacturers who sell equipment to farmers. This allows our farms to operate at a significantly reduced cost, even in small deployments, and gives us cost parity with California and Mexico produce.

With vertical integration, QuantoTech is in the process of rapid deployment of farms of all sizes suitable to satisfy the needs of the communities in which they are located.

QuantoTech Deploys Q-400 Specialty LED Lights with Wi-Fi Control in University Research Facilities

QuantoTech Solutions has supplied LED lights with Wi-Fi control and integrated cloud storage capabilities to a university reasearch facility.

“Our customers are asking us for cloud storage of remote grow parameters so they can optimize harvest performance from a distance. This example of precision agriculture supports QuantoTech’s mission of seving Northern and isolated communities,” said Alycia van der Gracht, Manager of Operations and Supply Chain.

QuantoTech Solutions Ltd. is an engineering service company that supplies energy-efficient and environment-friendly LED lighting systems to commercial growers.

QuantoTech Solutions Ltd. Showcases at the Investment Agriculture Foundation’s AGM

QuantoTech Solutions was invited to showcase at Investment Agriculture Foundation’s annual general meeting Thursday April 12th in Abbotsford.

“Thanks to the generous contribution from the Investment Agriculture Foundation, QuantoTech was able to further develop energy-saving LED lighting systems and create lighting solutions that benefited both northern growing and enclosed growing facilities who both encounter similar lighting constraints,” says Alycia van der Gracht, Manager of Operations and Supply Chain.

More on the results of QuantoTech’s project can be found in the Investment Agriculture Foundation’s 2016 annual report, and more information on the Investment Agriculture Foundation can be found here.

QuantoTech installs cloud based LED plant monitoring and control chambers for Novel Sensor Research

QuantoTech Solutions has built a cloud-based, enclosed plant monitoring and control system. The system is being used for a research project that evaluates cost effective sensor solutions that can accurately predict key performance indicators of plant health. This project was made possible with funding from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada.

“Providing a cost effective means to quantitatively measure plant health will be beneficial to both large-scale commercial growers as a way to quantitatively measure plant growth and health, as well as, smaller facilities which may not have access to on-site expert knowledge. The software provided in the cloud based system allows for simple visualization of data providing plant growth trends and key performance indicators, and eventually periodic recommendations and automated changes in the plant environment,” said Alycia van der Gracht, Manager of Operations and Supply Chain.

The first experimental crop consisted of microgreens. The imaging and analysis system was able to detect and predict harvest performance within the first 24 hrs of germination. This capability would allow growers to re-plant rather than suffer through a failed harvest.

QuantoTech Deploys Q75 Specialty LED Lights for Vertically staged Germination at Terramera Inc.

QuantoTech Solutions has supplied LED lights for vertically staged germination and growing at Terramera for use in growth trials.

“Any vertically staged growth requires a thin form factor light to make the most of the limited space. QuantoTech’s ultra-flat Q75 panels use diffused LED light allowing plants to grow right up close to the light source without risk of burning or harming the plant,” said Alycia van der Gracht, Manager of Operations and Supply Chain.

“The high level of uniformity found in QuantoTech’s lights generate greater homogeneity in our trial crops. This leads to more accurate data for our research and a higher level of precision in our results,” Said Jonatan Montpetit Plant Physiologist at Terramera.

QuantoTech Creates Energy-Saving LED Lighting Solutions

Thanks to the generous contributions from the Investment Agriculture Foundation, QuantoTech was able to further develop energy-saving LED lighting systems that illuminate the shadows cast by traditional horticultural lighting companies. QuantoTech was able to create lighting solutions that benefitted both northern growing and enclosed growing facilities who both encounter similar lighting constraints.

“‘By using next generation LED lighting technology, growers of leafy greens, micro-greens and culinary herbs can reduce their energy requirements for production by 30-40 percent and increase yields by up to 25 percent,’ explains QuantoTech founder, Alycia van der Gracht, adding the new technology also decreases production time.”
