About Cadence Agricultural Systems — CASi

CASiGrow Platform Growing System

CASi's "Why"

The CASiGrow platform consists of three class-leading essential elements:

  • Best-in-class control over all climatic conditions (temperature, RH, CO2, VPD)
  • Revolutionary 12-channel Smart LED lights
  • User-friendly, encrypted software for creating recipes, running reports and analyzing results

We believe CASi grow chambers will help develop important medicines and consumer products. It’s a way to reduce costs and ensure quality of produce for generations to come.

Our Focus

CASi helps growers both create optimal growing environments. We do it with the most flexible, powerful hardware and software platform for cannabis and other high value crop research and production.

Without a precise growing environment, growers and researchers can’t optimize their genetics. With the CASiGrow system, growers can rapidly experiment and then later recreate the ideal lighting, climatic and nutrient conditions for a particular strain, or desired chemotypical outcome.


We are perfectionists.

We specifically looked at the concerns growers of any kind face and we’ve tested, refined, and perfected solutions to  help every one of those problems.

We are forward thinking.

The future of agriculture is going to look very different… so we’re incorporating the Internet of Things and granular-level data analytics in our products.

We are problem solvers.

Our experience in product development and manufacturing gives us an insatiable desire to fix problems. In fact, the harder the problem, the happier we are.

We are here to support you.

We’re happy to provide detailed online training so our customers fully understand how to maximize their potential with CASi grow chambers.
