Results showed an average uplift in biomass production of 22% for the Aeroponic Rolling Benches, addressing challenges related to resource efficiency and agricultural sustainability.
In this article, we'll examine how stackable container farms can provide space-efficient commercial-level hydroponic production anywhere with a stable power and water hookup.
The research and development team is always on the lookout to try various crops that have yet to be grown in a hydroponic Tower. It was a first for our grow team to trial broccoli in the ZipFarm, so we removed all expectations.
Leafy greens are some of the best plants to grow hydroponically, and lettuce is an excellent plant to start out growing hydroponically. Here are some tips and tricks that will help you grow your own lettuce to reduce the growing retail prices.
The hydrovoltaic prototype, with an installed power of 9.3 kW, has been operational since August 2021 and covers an area of 250 m². It is equipped with a hydraulic system with two rainwater collection gutters and a tank with a pump system.
If you're wondering what the differences are between Aeroponics vs. Hydroponics, you're probably not alone. These often misunderstood agricultural practices are set up to be the future of farming, but most people don't know much about them.
Phase one of the New York-based, indoor farming pioneer's project will house a 150,000 square foot state-of-the-art climate-controlled, high-tech hydroponic greenhouse facility.
Water is a perfect example of a polar molecule. In fact, the polarity of water is what makes it such a good solvent. When salt is added to water it dissolves because the water molecules arrange themselves around the different ions and isolate them.
We recommend that hydroponic growers flush their systems every month to every few months, depending on the type of system they're running. But why? We're also fans of recirculating system because it conserves water and nutrients.
Eden Green Technology Breaks Ground on New Texas Greenhouse, Continues With $12 Million Strategic Expansion
Eden Green Technology's greenhouse modules are more sustainable and scalable than other hydroponic vertical farms, low-tech greenhouse formats, and traditional soil-based farming methods.
Leading tomato grower in Canada sees significant cost savings with LED technology and heavier fruit weights that drive increased yields
Moving farming from vast expanses of land to urban settings sounds like no easy feat. How can enough plants grow to feed large populations in a limited space? Instead of taking down skyscrapers, urban farmers use their vertical nature to their advantage.
With practice, many hydroponic growers can fine-tune their growing environment to remove bottlenecks, minimize maintenance, and increase the quality of their produce. One way they do this is through automated nutrient dosing.
Little Leaf Farms, the best-selling greenhouse grown lettuce in the US, doubles greenhouse growing capacity and broadly expands across East Coast
The company also recently bought 180 acres of land in McAdoo, Pennsylvania and has plans to build another state-of-the-art greenhouse there to further distribution down the East Coast of the sustainably-grown lettuce
The Deep Flow Technique (DFT) is similar to two other hydroponic systems, but it ultimately works in it's own way. In this article, you'll learn how DFT hydroponic systems grow crops.

Rollon's X-Rail linear rails are a reliable solution in environments susceptible to impurities. Equipped with rolling elements with shaped and flat raceways, they are available in several versions: galvanized, nitrided or stainless-steel sheet metal. The latter version ensures total corrosion resistance, which is critical for hostile environments such as those found in vertical farming. Particularly innovative is the T + U configuration of the X-Rail linear rails, which can compensate for the parallelism errors of mounting surfaces. This simplifies installation and reduces costs.
