what is indoor vertical farming?
Indoor Vertical Farming is essentially exactly as the name suggests: farming on stacked surfaces in enclosed spaces, where the growing environment can be controlled.
Hydroponics is the growing of plants without soil.
This highly efficient method of growing has many benefits:
- higher yields through faster grow cycles and smaller root systems;
- elimination of soil-borne pests and the need for pesticides,
- reduction in water requirements through water recycling and reuse within the system.
Growing hydroponically (and through extensive R&D), we are able to deliver the optimum water and nutrient requirements directly to the plants’ roots to produce healthy, nutritious and reliable produce, without the need for fertilisers. In addition, given that hydroponic growing is conducted in a controlled, indoor environment, it allows for year-round growth, unaffected by any unpredictable environmental factors: floods, fires, droughts or pests.
why indoor vertical farming?
Indoor Vertical Farming has been identified as one of
the most efficient means of addressing
the global increase in demand
for sustainable and safe fresh produce,
whilst also tackling critical food security and supply chain issues.
Highly efficient closed-loop systems use less than 5% of the water required by traditional agriculture.
no pesticides or herbicides
InvertiGro's enclosed grow systems negate the need for chemical herbicides and pesticides, meaning no nasty run-offs.
less food miles & waste
The ability to grow close to the point of consumption significantly reduces food miles and waste.
Turn square metres into cubic metres! Growing vertically and utilising existing indoor spaces significantly reduces land clearing and leaves more land for nature.
safe and secure
Clean, enclosed and controlled growing environments.
Shorter supply chains.
grow year round
Independent of climate conditions and disruptions, provide the ability to grow out of season and out of region crops
Control over the growing environment results in predictable supplies of reliable quality fresh produce.
Feed growing urban populations, with diminishing natural resources and arable land.
Increasing demand (from growing populations) and diminishing resources, combined with external disruptions (from droughts to COVID) are reducing the reliability and sustainability of fresh produce supplies.
Increasingly discerning consumers are fuelling demand for more exotic out-of-season, premium quality, pesticide-free produce and suppliers are increasingly conscious of the need to be more sustainable.
As a result, businesses are seeking simple, affordable and sustainable solutions to produce reliable supplies of quality fresh produce. InvertiGro delivers!
