Revol Greens, a greenhouse lettuce grower, has chosen IUNU as its technology partner to deliver a fully integrated approach of artificial intelligence, digital solutions, and automation at scale to meet rising consumer demand for greenhouse-grown leafy greens.
IUNU’s LUNA Platform helps greenhouse operators drive higher yields and produce better crops. Revol Greens has chosen to deploy IUNU’s artificial intelligence and computer vision system, LUNA AI, to automate operations and steer better crop performance at scale, along with its cultivation management platform, LUNA CMP which is designed to digitize production operations for maximum efficiency across multiple sites.
This is only the first step of a strategy to shift toward AI-driven operations and develop new areas of AI-led innovation. The continuous automated phenotyping, combined with a rigorous germplasm assessment, along with the application of the latest in sensor technology and data analytics, is expected to accelerate new CEA-grown crop launches. This will further expand the range of CEA-adapted crops and help alleviate some of the major supply chain challenges faced by field-grown produce. The partnership is also anticipated to expand the focus of the CEA grower from higher productivity and longer shelf life to delivering healthier and more nutritious fresh produce to the masses.
Revol says this partnership is only the first step of a strategy to shift toward AI-driven operations and to develop new areas of AI-led innovation.
“With LUNA AI and CMP, our staff is positioned to help scale up our business and is enabled to continuously learn and innovate improved growing recipes for existing and new crop launches,” said Mohammed Oufattole, Revol Greens CTO. “Our plant and data scientists have the tools to uncover detailed insights that will further enhance our capabilities and help deepen our competitive moat. We know the importance of implementing technology like LUNA, and as we continue to plan further expansion, this will put our plants in the driver’s seat.”
LUNA AI combines software with high-definition fixed and mobile cameras and environmental sensors to keep track of the minutiae of plant growth and health indicators in indoor agriculture settings. This turns commercial greenhouses into precise, predictable, demand-based manufacturers that optimize yield, labor, and product quality.
Revol Greens operates greenhouses in Minnesota, California, Georgia, and Texas and currently reaches more than one-third of the country’s population within 24 hours of harvest. The platform will enable organic supply chain improvements across all locations through a combination of improved crop output and quality.
“Revol Greens is a fantastic operator and maintains high product quality and food safety standards for all facilities. Our platform enables them to continue expanding across the United States and continue producing the highest quality and most sustainable products possible,” said Adam Greenberg, chief executive officer of IUNU.
