Linkwise planting first crops in New Zealand with Southern Fresh Group, Grow Systems International and Delta Electronics
Led by Grow Systems International, Linkwise collaborated with Delta Electronics Singapore to provide an innovative advanced farming solution to one of New Zealand’s leading professional growers and processors of high-quality gourmet baby vegetables, salad lines and herbs – Southern Fresh.
The control panels designed and fabricated were incorporated with Delta Electronics components for a customized moving gully system (MGS), to boost efficiency of fresh produce production operations. The fabricated control panels, HMI panels and the moving gully systems were delivered and installed onsite at the New Zealand farm.

During this recent crisis, customers had to wait in lengthy queues at supermarkets for limited stocks of food items. Traditional sourcing and production of essential supplies often fail to meet the spikes in demand from panicked shoppers, which highlights the need for innovative technology such as the MGS to boost efficiency in the agriculture sector and ensure secure supply.
The Moving Gully System (MGS)
Developed and patented by Grow Systems International, the Moving Gully System (MGS) is a horticulture technology that has proven to be a reliable solution for sustainable greenhouse cultivation of leafy greens and herbs.
