Controlled Environment
Crop Houses

Starfield Centres will feature some of the most innovative and progressive growing techniques currently available. From our unique method of glazing using our specialty AgClean pillow insulation process to our proprietary Cambia lighting each of our green houses will be designed to create an environment where vegetables are able to reach their peak of nutrition, naturally.

 

Starfield Centre Magrath will start with three initial groupings of crops: vegetables, berries and orchard fruits. Later expansion will include a vine house for table grapes and could include specialty crops such as coffee and tea.
