IAT launches vertical farming technology

British agricultural technology company Innovation Agri-Tech Group (IAG) has launched the GrowFrame 360, an aeroponic precision growing technology.

The innovative vertical farming tech is the culmination of five years of R&D and has been designed with the aim of revolutionising how crops are produced globally, using 98% less water than conventional farming methods.

The patented GrowFrame system has been refined to result in a highly precise growing process and has been proven to produce a healthier root system and superior crop growth and yield, according to Innovation Agri-Tech.

The solution does not require sunlight and eliminates weather and seasonal dependency, allowing crops to be grown year-round anywhere in the world.
