Are you ready for the road to

sustainable and profitable horticulture?

Do you want to optimize your cultivation, get more yields per square meter, and use fewer resources? Plant Empowerment is a proven philosophy to achieve this. Growers from all over the world who have applied this cultivation method have achieved incredible results.

The Plant Empowerment philosophy takes the natural behavior and vigor of plants as its starting point. The principles revolve around the sustainable cultivation of crops by supporting the natural balance of each plant. This unique data-driven way of thinking facilitates higher yields and better crop quality for growers, while also supporting more efficient use of valuable resources such as water, energy, and nutrients. As a result, the Plant Empowerment philosophy provides a roadmap to both profitable and environmentally friendly horticulture.


Join our workshop

Growers and other horticultural professionals are welcome to join the workshop, which focuses on sharing knowledge on the Plant Empowerment philosophy and how to put this knowledge into practice. Several Plant Empowerment specialists will host the workshop, in which they will address new insights around the Plant Empowerment theory in the areas of climate, plant balances, lighting, nutrition, plant health, and pest management.

Join us on Monday, July, 17th, and learn more about the basic principles of Plant Empowerment.
