Indoor Farmers of America LLC, the maker of Vertical Aeroponic Crop Growing Equipment, is launching full production availability of its indoor farming systems.
Indoor Farmers of America has tested leafy greens, herbs, peppers and strawberries in its equipment with great results; the equipment can grow 40 plants per square foot.
"Our product line spans small-footprint indoor farms that can immediately and economically address and solve the widespread problem of 'Food Deserts,' to the largest indoor agriculture operations planned today. And the vertical equipment gives existing greenhouse operators the ability to increase their actual crop yield up to 10 times in the same space they currently occupy compared to typical equipment in use today,"
Indoor Farms of America CEO David Martin said. "For example, our farm based in a shipping container nearly triples the closest competitor in real growing capacity, and our price structure is extremely favorable compared to other equipment. At under $8 a plant site, compared to $30 a plant site for a complete farm from others, you recapture your investment in under one year, and we do it in a fraction of the physical space. For large-scale operators, nothing matches our 40 plants per square foot growing in any area with a ceiling height of just 8 feet."
The company has been focused on research and development of its equipment for the last two years, developing multiple proprietary elements for its controlled-environment growing system,
"Our first customers have all done their homework and compared all existing equipment companies,"
Indoor Farms of America President Ron Evans said. "Each one came to the same conclusion -- that we have the best solution for indoor farming from every perspective, meaning lower costs to build, lower labor costs, extremely easy to plant and harvest, and all-naturally grown produce that passed a 'Taste Test' of over 30 chefs from the Las Vegas Strip."
