“The Future of Food Production”
The technology of plant and produce production will change drastically in the future. In order to make a profit on your farmland, or in your greenhouse, you will have to become more efficient. Water and energy will become more expensive and harder to obtain. High density growing has become standard in the agricultural and horticultural industry. Even though production has increased in the fields and in greenhouses there are still five hundred small farms and greenhouses going out of business every month.
Steps need to be taken now to improve the efficiency of your farm or greenhouse to avoid becoming one of these statistics. Never before has there been a growing system that matches the cost and production possible with a high density vertical growing system. No other hydroponic or organic system can be installed as easily as the vertical towers of a high density vertical Growth (HDVGHigh Density Vertical Growth) garden. High density vertical hydroponic growing is the only practical outdoor hydroponic system and unlike many hydroponic systems it is easy to install anywhere. Production is not only earlier in the fall, but also earlier and later in the spring and summer, even in northern climates. This unique system is a fraction of the cost of many of the current hydroponic systems.
The high density vertical growing system was not designed to replace the current growing systems for every crop. Certain crops have never been very profitable in greenhouses. These include strawberries, lettuce, spinach, Swiss chard, oriental greens and some types of herbs. The high density vertical growing systems gives a new dimension to high-density production for these crops, but are not intended to replace the commercial tomato and cucumber systems in use today. However these high density vertical growing systems are exceptionally good for “U-Pick” operations and hobby farmers, the system now used is a new concept of tomato “trees”, vegetable and even herb “trees”. Basically the plants hang down rather than growing up and therefore no tying or daily pruning is required. Using this growing technique the fruit never touches the ground or floor. The labor is significantly reduced.
Vertical growing is the way many crops will be grown in the future. Why not learn about it now?
