Who We Are

Frustrated that no existing software effectively automates critical but routine daily tasks in a greenhouse operation, greenhouse management experts at The Ohio State University developed our own solution: RedBud. Our team has decades of experience in corporate and academic greenhouse management and, just as importantly, in the development of great software.

Our Software

Designed by growers for growers, RedBud saves greenhouse operators time, resources and money. RedBud software is browser-based, delivered as a service. There is nothing to install on your computer.

RedBud provides a full data-driven view of your operation through the growth cycle. This will enable your team to make better decisions, resulting in more consistent crops each time while ensuring EPA regulatory compliance.

Our software combines powerful data aggregation capabilities, widgets and charting and graphing functionality, to facilitate reporting, tracking and forecasting.
