Hort Americas has conducted a new case study with Local by Atta.
Local by Atta — located inMoncton, New Brunswick, Canada — produces a variety of lettuces, basil, kale, Swiss chard, bok choy, cilantro and microgreens. Products are sold at farmers markets, health food stores, grocery stores, restaurants and through a weekly basket program. The basket program is expected to increase sales as the company looks to expand with pick up at local businesses, municipal buildings and its new production facility.
A fire in January 2016 destroyed the interior of the building including $10,000 worth of crops that had just been planted.
They are now using the GE Arize Lynk LED Growing System.
