Get more control over your plant cultivation with the Leaf Carrier. This mobile, flexible, plug-and-play cultivation trolley guarantees not only maximum yield and cultivation surface per square metre, but also minimal energy consumption per plant.
The unique, energy-efficient LED lighting in the Leaf Carrier combines the red and blue light essential for plant cultivation. Due to the fact that the light is being mixed at source, each seedling in the plant tray is given exactly the right colour spectrum. In combination with optimum heat distribution, the Leaf Carrier ensures that your plants emerge and grow uniformly, both in the middle and at the edge of each plant tray.
The Leaf Carrier can be used for a variety of applications, such as propagation and tissue culture and well as food cultivation.
"The Leaf Carrier makes it possible to double the growing surface within the existing space."
Ard Stoutjesdijk, Operational Manager
Maximum cultivation surface per m² floor space
The Leaf Carrier distinguishes itself by minimizing the thickness of its layers (9 mm) whilst maximizing the load-bearing capacity of the plant trays. Integrating the LEDs into the trays that contain the seedlings has resulted in maximum cultivation surface per square metre of cultivation chamber. Each trolley (2.27 metres in height) can easily hold up to 15 plant trays, giving you no less than 14 m2 of cultivation surface in just 1 m2 of floor area!
Red and blue light, for optimum plant growth
The unique, energy-efficient LED lighting in the Leaf Carrier combines the red and blue light essential for plant cultivation. Due to the fact that the light is being mixed at source, each seedling in the plant tray is given exactly the right colour spectrum, resulting in optimum, uniform growth. As no distance needs to be factored in for light mixing, all the seedlings can be positioned very close to the LEDs, without the risk of burning them.
Exceedingly uniform light, stable growth process
Correct placement of the LEDs and a clever structure to the translucent plant trays ensure uniform lighting. Both in the middle and at the edge of the plant trays, meaning you can rest assured that your seedlings will emerge uniformly and their growth will be stable. What’s more, the high degree of light uniformity means that the distance between the seedlings and the plate above can be smaller than is the case with traditional systems. Enabling you to use the plant tray in its entirety.

Minimum heat generation
The LED lighting in the Leaf Carrier scarcely generates any heat. And placing the seedlings on an advanced plastic plant tray prevents heat generation under the plant surface and evaporation (water loss). Meaning that there is no possibility of plants being heated and/or drying out with the Leaf Carrier.
The minimal amount of heat that is generated is drawn away to the side of the Leaf Carrier in a unique, extremely efficient, natural way, resulting in an optimum, uniform climate on the plant trays. The upshot of this is uniform, stable plant growth over the entire cultivation surface, without any additional cooling being required.

Scalable and flexible
The mobile, flexible, plug-and-play Leaf Carrier means that no major upfront investment is required. All you need is a room with power supply! Simply start with a single 15-layer Leaf Carrier and straight away you’ll have yourself 14 m² of cultivation surface! Add Leaf Carriers as soon as your business is growing. Leaf Carriers give you optimum flexibility, as they can be moved anywhere in the room and can be put next to each other for maximum light efficiency. Various models are available, varying in height and number of layers per Leaf Carrier. Meaning there will always be a suitable model available for your space and plant type.
Invest while you grow!

The Leaf Carrier distinguishes itself by means of its minimalistic, functional, robust and hygienic design. All cables, power supply units and intelligence have been incorporated into the frame of the cultivation trolley. Thus keeping damage to the trolley to a minimum, and preventing dirt from accumulating. Both the plant trays and the frame are easy to clean. Making the Leaf Carrier extremely well suited to being used in climate chambers and in vitro environments.
The Leaf Carrier sheds new light on your plant cultivation.
The Leaf Carrier comes with Reveb Horticulture Lighting Smart Technology as standard, enabling users to manage and control plant trays straightforwardly and separately. An app on your smartphone or tablet not only makes it easy to switch the light on the trays on and off but also enables on and off times to be (pre-)programmed and light intensities (μmol) to be adjusted. Entirely in line with your seedlings’ (cycle) needs. An optimum growth climate at minimal energy consumption is the sustainable result.
Choosing the Leaf Carrier means choosing:
- Plug-and-play installation of the cultivation trolley and app.
- Self-organizing wireless network; separate configurations not required.
- The light intensity (μmol) is easy to adjust (for each plant tray) to the growing cycle of your seedlings.
- Spread energy consumption over the day thanks to the flexible day/night switches for each trolley and for each plant tray. (optional)
- Simply switch off unused plant trays.
- Easy integration with your back office system for optimum control and insight into processes and data. (optional)
- Plug-and-play installatie
- Zelforganiserend draadloos netwerk
- Intelligent μmol-dimmen (per laag)
- μmol normalizer; geen μmol-daling tijdens levensduur
- Verspreid stroomverbruik over de dag
- Schakel ongebruikte lagen gemakkelijk uit
- Programmeerbare groeicyclusschema's
- Automatische signalering wanneer de groeicyclus is voltooid
- Regelbaar spectrum
- Integratie met uw backofficesysteem voor optimale controle en proces- en data inzicht
