IAT launches vertical farming technology
Added on 11 October 2022
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. IAG's technology accelerates crop growth to up to 15 harvest cycles per year, compared with the three to four seen with traditional farming methods, with the equivalent of 10 acres of growing space housed within 135m2.
