Green Fields worked with REMY, Fluence’s Israeli distribution and integration partner, to select VYPR 3p fixtures with BROAD R3 spectrum technology to provide a spectrum that is designed to supplement and replicate natural sunlight in its facility. Coupled with the facility’s F-CLEAN™ technology, a fluoropolymer sheet that transmits the full spectrum of natural sunlight during the day, the VYPR 3p allows Green Fields to maximize lighting conditions to help drive peak growth regardless of season.
“I think every cannabis cultivator must have the golden triangle, which is the best cultivation facility, the best genetics and the right people and partners,” said Lior Pisso Saada, founder and business development advocate at Green Fields. “Consistency is the name of the game and one of the greatest things we have achieved by using Fluence LED technology. We can now grow as consistently in the winter as we do in the summertime.”
Each zone of Green Fields’ flagship greenhouse is equipped with a special air treatment unit that stabilizes humidity, temperature and airflow to reduce microclimates and improve uniformity. The cultivation team uses innovative monitoring technology to control other critical aspects of the grow, including root zone management and irrigation. Green Fields also leverages REMY’s expertise and Fluence’s team of in-house horticultural lighting experts who support the agronomic team in adjusting and optimizing light levels, photoacclimation, pest control, irrigation strategies and mother stock treatment.
“To operate cultivation at this scale, we need three things: a high level of control, data and a strong team,” said Yarden Roitemberg, chief agronomist at Green Fields. “Fluence and REMY offer more than just LED technology—they are true partners who provide comprehensive horticulture services and advisory.”
The Green Fields facility houses the biggest agronomic lighting system ever installed in Israel. Since the deployment of Fluence lights, Green Fields has cultivated between 15 and 18 tons of cannabis per year.
“For Green Fields to trust REMY as a best-in-class overall solutions provider for what is now the largest cannabis facility in Israel is an honor,” said Elad Toby, founder, chief business development officer and chief technology officer at REMY. “We knew our expertise in planning, installation, integration and quality assurance of agronomic lighting solutions, paired with Fluence's leading-edge technology and in-house horticulture services, was the best mix to equip Green Fields with the setup, data and knowledge to grow with confidence.”
“The determination of the Green Fields team to break down barriers and improve the quality of greenhouse medical cannabis production in Israel is extraordinary,” said Jörg Meyer-Brenken, lead account manager for cannabis in Europe, the Middle East and Africa at Fluence. “Whether you interact with management, the cultivation team or marketing, you can feel their passion everywhere. I am very excited to see Green Fields thrive and collaborate with the team to expand their businesses to other regions and new markets.”
