Dec. 16, 2015, Las Vegas — Indoor Farms of America, LLC has developed a new system to help farmers achieve far higher yields and profitability in their operations.

The Vertical Aeroponic Crop Growing Equipment system is designed for large-scale agricultural production. It was developed after nearly two years of R&D. Leafy greens, herbs, peppers and strawberries can be grown at an impressive 40 plants per square foot.

The vertical equipment gives existing greenhouse operators the ability to increase their actual crop yield up to 10 times in the same space they currently occupy compared to typical equipment in use today,” said David Martin, CEO of Indoor Farms of America.

“For large scale operators, nothing matches our 40 plants per square foot growing in any area with a ceiling height of just eight feet.”

During the past two years, the company developed multiple proprietary elements that make its controlled environment growing system unique, and has numerous patents pending.

All forms of the company’s equipment are now available. “Precision-controlled farms growing abundant, all-natural and non-GMO food in a manner that ensures the financial success of the farm operator is our core mission,” says company president Ron Evans.

The system uses up to 95 per cent less water than soil farming. It is fully sustainable, as no waste is generated in the growing process.
