This video showing the harvest of a cabbage and of an oak leaf lettuce, has been one of the most popular posts on our social media platforms this year…
It was viewed almost 10 million times on Instagram.
We would like to thank our followers and the viewers for their interest and constructive feedback.
One big concern which was addressed repeatedly by our viewers has been questioning the source of the nutrients which we use, and how it compares to growing vegetables in the soil.
Our Tower Farms are powered by different sources of nutrients. Some of our clients use the nutrients-enriched water from their aquaponic farm, others use organic nutrients formulated for hydroponics, and again, many Tower Farms use pure mineral-based nutrients which do not feature fillers or synthetic stabilizers.
However, regrettably, within the hydroponic industry, many farmers are using synthetic-based nutrients to cut corners and speed up production. We despise such an approach as we consider the end product to be a ‘nutritional fraud’!
Having run an organic farm for over 20 years prior to being involved with Tower Farming, we are extremely picky when it comes to the quality and purity of the nutrients which we use when growing fruits and vegetables using aeroponic towers.
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. On average, our vegetables have a 35% increase in nutrient density, 30% increase in antioxidants, and 40% increase in flavonoid levels: Science does not lie!
When using the right fertilizers, aeroponics produces some of the healthiest and finest tasting crops in comparison to any conventional farming method.
