QS GreenBox

Our main product is a fully automated cultivation system that pre-cultivate forestry seedlings in multiply layers in a closed environment. This enables an efficient and sustainable production of seedlings, with the same optimal results, repeatedly – all year-round. Just program the perfect recipe and press start and produce up to 14 million seedlings annually, on only 100 sqm.

The QS GreenBox is a proven and patented solution and will take your production to an industrial and process-based production. Implement the QS GreenBox and secure a high growing expertise 24/7, 365 days a year.

The QS GreenBox is installed in isolated industrial buildings of an area of 200 sqm with concrete floors. This makes it possible to install the QS GreenBox anywhere, in the world. The lifetime of the QS GreenBox is at least 30 years with minimum, but regularly maintenance.

Implement the QS GreenBox and take your nursery to a new level of modernization, digitalization and efficiency.


QS StorageRack

The QS StorageRack will rationalize and simplify your plant logistic at the nursery.
It is a specially designed for storage of mini plug seedlings in a compact and space efficient way. The storage rack is also used for easy transportation of the mini plug seedlings between seeding – QS GreenBox – transplanting/cold storage.

QS Analysis and R&D

We have a vast experience of plant biology in combination with cultivation in the QS GreenBox solution. We have lead many R&D projects focusing on developing the plant growth. We have also spent many hours on creating growing schedules for nursery´s to make the nursery as efficient as possible.

PlantVation can offer an analysis of your nursery and provide you with a report on how many seedlings your nursery can produce with implementation of the QS GreenBox. The report will also include how the nursery can make the usage of resources as efficient as possible. 

QS Support and Service 

We offer a support and service agreement to sign after implementation of a QS GreenBox or QS InnovationBox. The agreement includes support hours and regularly maintenance to make sure everything is working perfectly and that all the software is updated. This will contribute to extending the lifetime of the QS GreenBox, which is at least 20 years.

QS InnovationBox

We offer a rental of a small-scale QS InnovationBox for efficient R&D possibilities and testing of the big scale QS GreenBox. Just plug it in and get started with R&D or use it for valuation of the QS GreenBox if you are curious to try it out with your own seeds and growing recipes.
