Got Produce? announces new carrots grown hydroponically
“We saw a value add market for custom shaped carrots,” explains Deborah Walliser, Got Produce? CEO and hydroponic expert. “Since carrots grow quickly, it makes sense to use them as a beta test for other root crop systems. In a region that is facing a harsh drought, we are looking at adopting hydroponic technology to more and more crops in an effort to save water and continue global food production.”
In order to grow successfully, carrots require a specific moisture to air ratio. To create this ratio, Got Produce? cuts Styrofoam blocks into various shapes, most commonly square and round shapes. The carrots are grown from seed in the Styrofoam moulds, using hydroponic irrigation systems. Once the carrots are ready to harvest, the Styrofoam blocks are turned upside down to release the carrots. Most often we think of carrots as being orange, but white, red, purple and yellow carrots also exist. Got Produce? has grown both orange and purple carrots hydroponically.
The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) reports that world production of carrots for 2011 was almost 35.658 million tons. Almost half were grown in China. “Perhaps now we can grow more carrots close to home,” Walliser adds. The technology to grow carrots and root vegetables hydroponically is the latest of Got Produce’s exciting new innovations, including technology to grow wine grapes hydroponically and greenhouse drone sensors.
Got Produce? franchises, both national and international, will have the have the first access to the new hydroponic carrot growth methods. Got Produce?® is continually searching for new locations to build new greenhouses, especially in high-demand areas.
