Sundrop Farms, in the state of South Australia, is a unique greenhouse operation on the cutting edge of energy management – and expansion is in the works.



Their new eight-hectare glass greenhouse will feature the most sophisticated temperature control technologies. Commercialization of their greenhouse technology, which includes their own solely solar-powered ‘thermal desalination’ plant design, is also moving forward.

Watch upcoming issues of Greenhouse Canada Magazine for a feature story on Sundrop farms - and its head grower, Ontario native David Pratt.
