AGRA's goal is to help bring about a more sustainable agricultural future.
To do this, AGRA will develop and operate commercial-scale plant factories that take all crops (namely staple crops such as wheat, rice and soy) out of the field and vertically stack them indoors, to mitigate their impact and sustainably produce food on earth and beyond.

To achieve its goal, AGRA needs to reduce the cost of growing in plant factories. The company aims to tackle this in an iterative manor, building on technologies developed along the way and generating revenue in the process.
HORTUS is the first step on this journey, a small scale implementation of AGRA's growing technology that allowed for rapid development and iteration.
The technology developed for HORTUS will be used in ARVUM, an initial commercial-scale system targeting leafy green production with no price premium and with far less impact on our world.
ARVUM is AGRA's first commercial-scale plant factory, designed to initially grow leafy greens and herbs and expanding to further produce segments over time.
The proceeds from ARVUM will be used to develop PRAEDIUM, a large-scale system capable of growing staple crops commercially. Capable of addressing some of agricultures largest impacts.
Beyond this AGRA plans to develop systems capable of producing crops in space and on other celestial bodies.
