Each chamber is optimized for Micro Greens production with a vertical rack system which contains 5 vertical production levels. Each level contains 3 10” wide x 12’ long NFT Crop King Gutters for a total of 360 linear feet of production equaling a potential harvest of 108 “1020” growers trays per week. Each level contains 3 to 4 energy efficient crop-specific, full-spectrum LED fixtures for optimum growth.
Each Growtainer comes complete with an automatic Hydroponic system for water monitoring, automatic dosing and nutrient recirculation. The production chamber air conditioned and includes Humidistat controlled vents and hi-cfm Fans to maintain an even temperature and relative humidity for optimum growth. Each chamber comes equipped with an organic CO2 system. Increases in CO2 typically result in higher yields and increased growth and reproduction, provided other growth factors like light, and temperature are controlled.
"Unlike other container farm manufacturers in the market today, we have always avoided making any unrealistic claims about yield and profitability. Our results have consistently generated a higher yield in a shorter time than all conventional production methods", Glenn Behrman says. Recently they’ve developed a collaboration with Crop King, a manufacturer of Hydroponic systems to create an affordable, crop specific Growtainer to produce Micro Greens for sales to Chefs, restaurants, caterers, grocery retailers etc.
"We believe that even an inexperienced farmer, using our system can generate a substantial profit with a minimal investment. The system requires approximately 30 hours per week of labor for production and delivery, it’s modular so you can increase production as you increase sales and you can produce any of the hundreds of varieties of Micro Greens in demand by Chefs everywhere", Glenn adds.
