Zayndu's head of plant science, Dr Alberto Campanaro, is hitting the road this March to deliver presentations on the impact of cold plasma seed treatment on both plant health and productivity for indoor farming businesses.
Due to expansion in our operations, we are seeking to hire two new production team members. Full details and links to apply for either the Lead Production Engineer or Electrical Engineer can be found on our vacancies page.
SeedCloud, our online system for monitoring and maintaining seed treatment systems, is getting an upgrade – and to get the work done quicker, we’d like to support our in-house team with external developers who can take on a significant portion of the project. If you are interested in tendering for this work, please contact us […]
This week we are recognising one of our microbiology laboratory technicians, Sam Eates, for his 3-year anniversary here at Zayndu Ltd. Head of Biology, Alberto Campanaro, says “Sam has always been a great and key member of my team. His improvement in the last few years has been amazing, both from a quality and precision perspective as well as the […]
Bigger, faster growing crops, better flavour and up to 7x more yield with zero agrichemicals is just a few of the reasons why Zayndu’s unique cold plasma technology has been shortlisted for the Food and Drink section of the upcoming LeicestershireLive Innovation Awards.
Growers hit by energy increases could increase productivity with a novel seed treatment. Results from Zayndu show yield increases of 10 – 27% in yield of herb and salad crops and more rapid germination following treatment with its Aurora plasma-tech.
Vertical farming is attracting record investment, according to a recent report, with technologies such as Aurora that are directed at producing more per unit of space and reducing the time to harvest – crucial to its success.
Globalisation has created an increased risk for plant health, with the potential for transportation of pests and diseases on fresh produce and seeds. London is to host the World's first International Plant Health Conference 21-22nd September 2022 which will look at current and future plant health challenges and how to facilitate safe trade.
Together with so many across the country and beyond, we at Zayndu feel a deep sense of loss and sadness at the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and offer our sincere condolences to the Royal Family.
As energy costs increase will Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA) be able to compete with open field cultivation? This is a question often asked, but potentially the wrong question as it assumes that vertical farming is in direct competition with broadacre cultivation. This is one of the issues that will be discussed at the CEA event hosted by University of Plymouth.
Ten percent more plants from the same number of seeds, faster germination, healthier plants and 25% more fresh weight at harvesting – by using ‘plasma agriculture’ to clean and prime the seeds in one operation, the new Zayndu Aurora Z25 system has been shown to increase productivity in Vertical Farms.
Creating healthy growing environments without the use of chemicals will be one of the hot topics at the event Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA) 4.0 2022, one of the largest events in the calendar for vertical farming and indoor farming.
Zayndu’s innovative use of ‘activated air’ as a seed cleaning alternative to chemical treatments has earnt the company nominations for two awards at the upcoming Insider Made in the Midlands awards night, set for Thursday 26 May 2022.
Venturefest West Midlands is an opportunity for entrepreneurs, investors and innovators in the vibrant West Midlands business community to meet, engage and exchange ideas. It provides a showcase for science and emerging technologies, and so provides a great opportunity for Zayndu to bring the potential of its plasma agriculture to a wider audience.
We’ve seen some amazing results, treated seeds have resulted in significant reductions in infections, improved germination rates, higher yield and reduced losses,” says Dr Katie Wilkins, Vertical Future
Keeping the controlled growing environment free of pests is critical to a successful vertical farming and a major source of potential contamination is seeds. Zayndu has developed the world’s first ‘activated air’ technology to offer seed disinfectant without the use of chemicals or water. It is a silver sponsor of the Global Vertical Farming Expo (GVFE 2021) a virtual event on 1-2nd December 2021.
We are proud to supply systems to PlasSeed, a research programme led by Loughborough University and Royal Holloway University of London that brings together experts in plasma technology, seed biology, and commercial seed processors.
With a significant expansion in the bio-lab, we realised we didn't have enough space for all the equipment; and that being upstairs in a building where the elevators are smaller than a bio-safety cabinet wasn't sensible. We'd carried enough incubators up the stairs, and so it was time to move on!
