Growponics’ technology allows consistent quality of produce to ensure the best possible market price. Planting, harvesting and packaging is at a semi-automated level, including robotic features; done in a climate controlled environment, monitored by an advanced computerized control center, thus reducing the need for costly manpower and training. Monitoring the environment, keeping oxygen, light, CO2, humidity, temperature, nutrients and other factors at optimum levels, ensures a healthy growth, reduces the need for harmful pesticide and herbicide residues, and ensures the produce is free of pathogenic bacteria. The minimal use of water, as compared to field crops (75%-90% savings) is an answer to water shortages. In addition, the uniquely designed greenhouse facilities can be put anywhere, because soil quality and the outdoor climate are not growing factors, as in the case of “field-grown” leafy greens.
Growponics is constantly developing new technologies from robotics to biotechnology.
