Vaerens Presents


AI driven modelling services
for horticulture lighting

Artificial intelligence powered insights based on objective data offering a grounded basis for making crucial decisions about crop lighting investment.

Who are we

What sets us apart

We are on a mission to drive artificial intelligence and big data solutions
into the hands of horticulture experts across the globe

Data farming specialists

Our entire business revolves around cost-effective data farming. Developing algorithms both to facilitate and utilise plant growth data aquisition.

Unique Insights

Vaerens optimisation algorithms are capable of efficiently exploring uncommon growth conditions and providing new insights into innovative lighting conditions.

Plant science to commercial cultivation

With an endless variety of crops and cultivars, each have different technical decisions making processes.

Objective output

Predictions are driven by unbiased data; providing an objective component in the process of cultivation decision making.

Inherent scalability

An architecture designed and created by a team of leading industry product engineers; unlimited scalability is one of our core design principles.

Compare spectra

Our tooling enables us to do quick comparisons of lighting condition effects on crop development.

AI first solution

We are an AI first technology startup. This means all our products are designed from the start to maximize artificial intelligence implementation.

Quick and cost-effective

Because we are focused on big data instead of qualitative research, we are able to create data in a scalable manner at a different pace compared to research institutes.

Effective lighting choices are central to successful indoor crop cultivation

Luma PRO services offer horticulture experts freedom from constrained decision making: establishing a standard in available data; without the high cost of customised research or commercial bias.

Data farming

How does it work


In collaboration with farmers and horticultural engineers, Vaerens grows crops indoors under strictly controlled conditions


Imaging and sensory data is harvested from the crops; deep learning analysis is then applied


Iterations of data farming cycles are optimised by an artificial intelligence driven tuning strategy


The harvested data is used to train artificial intelligence models to make predictions about optimised growth conditions

At this stage, we are preparing Luma PRO
for a select group of pilot partners

About Us

Traditional symbolic programming alone has its limits in its ability to handle a high degree of complexity that comes with growing crops in a controlled environment. Artificial intelligence offers the opportunity to create new solutions for crop cultivation where we use algorithms to analyse and manage the complexity of biological systems.

Vaerens as a startup is specialised to approach horticulture from a perspective of artificial intelligence and cloud computing. Our team is on a mission to build a company that creates new sustainable agriculture technologies on the intersection of data science, computer science and biology. Key characteristics for our designs are scalability and commercial viability.

Feel free to reach out!

We embrace collaboration as the hallmark of progress and innovation;
in that spirit we are open to any suggestion, question and ideas for collaboration you might have.
