Vertical Hydroponics

We have constructed and operate a 600m2 vertical hydroponics facility in Redlands, Brisbane. This growing system accommodates 25,000 plants at a time and has the equivalent productivity of a 2500m2 conventional hydroponic greenhouse. Water usage is less than 50% of a standard greenhouse equipped with horizontal hydroponics, requiring only 24% of the footprint. This facility is being used for further development in robotics and automation, in conjunction with the local university robotic team.
