LAS VEGAS, March 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- GrowTrucks, LLC container farm division of Indoor Farms of America-- maker of unique vertical aeroponic indoor farm equipment, is pleased to announce the delivery and operation of the first sold Container Farm using the latest patented technology in indoor agriculture, with a growing capacity that eclipses any other product in the marketplace.
"By combining our superior aeroponic vertical growing platform, with the latest components to operate the farm, we have delivered on our mission to bring to agriculture a truly economically viable solution, wrapped in a container," states David Martin, CEO of Indoor Farms of America.
"When we began, we were set to actually be a customer of another container farm maker, a few years ago," says Martin. "What we discovered was they were cramming what we felt was very poor technology in a small box and calling it innovation, and we knew the business model was not going to be successful for farmers. We knew then and we know now that you simply must grow more plants to make a successful business model and generate a reasonable R.O.I. from a tiny farm platform such as a shipping container".
The GrowTrucks unique, reliable and patented vertical aeroponic platform can affordably grow up to 8,450 healthy plants with excellent flavor due to the patented system for mineral uptake in the plants, all in a 320 square foot container, and is designed to operate in any climate in the world, all year long, month after month with no season to stop the farmer from producing.
"If you want fresh strawberries, chili peppers, or just about any leafy green, and you are located in the coldest climate, in a remote location, you can do just that, and it makes great sense as a business, and is easy to operate, even if you don't have a green thumb", according to Ron Evans, company President.
With a goal of bringing to market the freshest possible, naturally and locally grown produce with amazing flavor, GrowTrucks is positioned to service the demand with the most advanced solution in the world for farms in a shipping container. "Nothing else comes close, in growing capacity, function or price. Out target was a farm that can really make money for a farmer", according to Martin.
The GrowTrucks container farm equipment uses the latest in farm management controls, and are easy to operate and maintain. The first farm built 2 years ago in R&D underwent hundreds of hours of design, being put through rigorous testing to ensure long term reliability of the equipment.
"If you can think of a place that has a need for really fresh, accessible produce, we have the platform that not only makes it possible, but does it on a "commercial scale" basis so there is real ROI to the producer, something lacking before now", states Martin.
