Vertical & Hydroponic - The Dynamic Duo
Currently, vertical farming and hydroponics have become synonymous. The marrying of small footprint farming with net-zero water waste culminates in successful and profitable crop models that promote environmental responsibility.
Traditional open field and greenhouse farming models and methods have typically tried to capture both profitability and responsibility. Although they fall short in at least one and frequently both.
From a fiscal perspective, the goal of vertical hydroponic farming is to circumvent the existing vegetable distribution lines by locating the vertical farms in metropolitan areas. Further with the superior quality, the product will demand a premium price.
Cost Effective Vertical Farming
Vertical farming is extremely cost effective, although the initial system design, installation, and equipment costs outweigh that of the field or greenhouse model.
Although the initial costs are more significant, these costs are offset by the lowering of the typical costly distribution chains and by the increasing the productivity of the farms.
Additionally, with automation, the ongoing costs are driven down further as labor is the single most expensive aspect of farming.
The Importance of Design
The intelligent design of vertical hydroponic systems is an elegant balance of
- Irrigation pre-treatment,
- Water distribution,
- Crop and harvest modeling,
- Wastewater treatment,
- Filtration and,
- Nutrient injection.
In the United States and abroad, vertical hydroponic projects have been designed and constructed by competent engineering personnel who have extensive experience in their respective fields. Although, the lack of horticulture interface and background have held back the full potential of the industry.
