However, when it comes to growing leafy greens and herbs, whether spinach, lettuce (all kinds), kale, chard, collard greens, mustard greens, arugula, watercress, coriander, basil, parsley, oregano, dill etc., our aeroponic tower technology is unparalleled in terms of crop yield, antioxidant levels, nutrient density, and flavonoid levels (flavor).
We do not advocate to grow better ‘greens’, but rather, we prove it by publishing an extensive comparative scientific study showing the irrefutable proof of our crop yield increase, and the superior quality of the plants grown on our towers. Science does not lie.
Technically, we can grow over 200 different crops successfully using our technology, however, when farming leafy greens and herbs, we are in a league of our own!
Leafy greens and herbs that are grown in the soil, usually travel over 1000 km on average before reaching retail stores and spend on average of 2 ½ days transiting.
By the time veggies are being retailed, they have lost 40 to 60% of all nutritional values. Aside from that, whether organic or chemical, soil-based farming is subject to the ongoing process of spraying pesticides!
In the case of hydroponics, whether imported or produced locally, such technology produces weak plants which we qualify with a certain disdain as to be ‘super market quality’! You know, veggies that all look perfect, but that have absolutely no taste! Aside from the lack of taste, the texture is all the same… Furthermore, most hydroponic farms use chemical stabilizers in their nutrient formula.
This is why regardless of local competition and existing food distribution network when a Tower Farm focuses on leafy greens and herbs, it is a guarantee to sell out its production.
In other terms, when considering to start a Tower Farm, although the leafy greens and herbs local market may seem to be in place locally after the first crop is harvested, we advise the Tower Farm owner to gift a box of veggies to taste to every food buyer (supermarkets, restaurants, hotels, etc.).
No one else can grow such flavorful greens with such authentic texture and vibrancy.
The leafy greens and herbs production of a Tower Farm is always guaranteed to be sold out!
Furthermore, Tower Farms allow producing veggies locally saving 95% water in comparison to conventional hydroponics while saving up to 90% space in comparison to NFT hydroponic systems.
Every single Tower Farm worldwide specializes in leafy greens and herbs. In every case, when a Tower Farms was initially set up, the leafy greens and herbs local market was already fully supplied. Regardless, due to the superior quality produced by our aeroponic tower technology, every single Tower Farm owner ends up selling out out its production of leafy greens and herbs.
