R&D Philosophy

The whole is greater than the sum of its parts – we research and develop all of our technologies in-house to ensure that each part improves efficiency across the whole vertical farm.

Automated solutions minimize labor costs and accelerate the pace of production

At YesHealth Group, we approach automation from a regional feasibility perspective, tailoring automated solutions to our regional partners specific needs. For example, the Nordic Harvest vertical farm in Denmark features more advanced automation than our vertical farm in Taiwan. We believe that higher levels of automation are feasible under the right circumstances.


We currently offer automated solutions to perform tasks such as seeding, transplanting, AGV for internal logistics, harvesting and product packaging. We are constantly improving our automated solutions to process larger yields at an ever faster pace, elevating efficiency, and we are working towards the goal of building an unmanned vertical farm under feasible conditions.

Seeding Automation

The YesBase edible gel substrate is inserted into a tray and transferred into the seeding automation by a robotic arm. Our seeding automation is capable of planting 212 seeds in less than 15 seconds, and is compatible with seeds of all shapes and sizes.

Transplanting Automation

After the seeds have germinated and sprouted in darkness, they are transplanted onto larger growing boards. Nearly 200 seedlings are transplanted in a single motion, then loaded onto an AGV and placed under LED lighting for the main growth cycle.

Harvesting and Packaging Automation

YesHealth Group designs harvesting and packaging automation to meet regional consumer demands. For example, consumers in Denmark favor leafy vegetables that are cut away from the root, so we specially designed this automation for our Danish partner.

Cleaning Automation

After the plants have been harvested, the trays and boards are cycled in our cleaning automation, which uses powerful jets of water and brushes to remove any leftover plant matter. The trays and boards can then be returned to the YesBase and seeding automation.
