Innovative Growers Equipment (IGE) – Hydrofarm Commercial: Empowering Education / Research Together

Navigating the intersection of academic and education / research timelines with the natural ebb and flow of the seasons can be a daunting task. At Innovative Growers Equipment (IGE)-Hydrofarm Commercial, we provide innovative horticultural lighting and comprehensive greenhouse solutions that bridge this gap. Our systems empower students to explore and cultivate diverse crops year-round, while also enabling researchers to carry out their work irrespective of seasonal constraints. Whether it’s fostering the growth of floral crops in the short days of winter, studying tropical plants during the coldest season, ensuring a continuous harvest of food crops, or conducting crucial research without disruption, IGE-Hydrofarm Commercial transcends the boundaries set by nature’s calendar.

We proudly offer a range of cutting-edge lighting fixtures utilized across diverse educational contexts. From local high school greenhouses to prestigious university horticultural programs like Clemson University, Oklahoma State University, and Cornell University, our lighting solutions illuminate the path for both flora and scholars. However, it’s not just elite institutions that benefit from our technology; we also provide affordable lighting systems for local community colleges, independent school districts, and other academic programs.

For over three decades, we’ve been designing lighting systems that foster year-round cultivation and effective teaching in Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA) settings. Beyond lighting, we offer a comprehensive set of tools including trays, benches, and pumps to ensure your greenhouse teaching experience is productive for students of all ages. Whether we’re working directly with your institution or collaborating through your existing vendor partnerships, we’re dedicated to offering consultation and design recommendations that cater to your needs, objectives, and budget.

But our reach doesn’t stop at educational establishments. IGE-Hydrofarm Commercial’s horticultural LED grow lighting is also employed in a variety of research settings, found in private, public, and government institutions across the globe. Our LED lighting ensures year-round research capability, whether you’re exploring next-generation hybrids, disease/pest control, or novel cultivation techniques. By facilitating multiple crop cycles per year, our systems lead to shorter data collection periods and expedited validation of testing results.

For three decades, we’ve had the privilege of working with esteemed organizations including the USDA, universities, and Fortune 500 companies. Their research, enhanced by our lighting and facility solutions, continues to improve our plant resources and the quality of life. To complement our lighting, we provide a range of products such as hydroponic trays, pumps, vertical grow racks, benches, and media designed to fulfill all your cultivation needs, whether indoor or greenhouse farming.
