Vertical Farming Automation
Automation is essential to vertical farming systems to ensure all crops are getting enough care and attention. Some vertical farms go up to 30 feet high so automating the lighting, fertilization and irrigation is sensible and practical solution to managing your growing system. Here at Grow Pod we believe a fully automated vertical farming system is key to success. Here’s why:
The key to automation is being able to rely on the technology to do the work for you. Once you set the parameters you can forget about it and focus on other important tasks. Farming need no longer be labor intensive.
If a problem comes up, the system will then alert you via email or text message and you can log in to check the data.
If you are manually watering it can be easy to overwater or underwater your plants.
To be accurate you would need to stick to a good schedule to make sure there were no inconsistencies.
An automated farming system delivers the exact quantity at the precise moment it’s needed, preventing under or over watering
An automated control system can monitor and measure your water run-off as well as all other consumption and waste.
The data gathered can then be used to ensure compliance with local legislation if required and give you an accurate measurement of expenditure.
