Gallery: Mobile Growtainers Provide Controlled Environments for Farming...

 

GreenTech Agro Inc., managed by Glenn Behrman, a 40-year veteran of the horticulture industry who founded The Plant Shed in NYC, recently announced the launch of the “Growtainer” project, a new concept in controlled-environment farming. Growtainers are specially equipped insulated shipping containers complete with the most advanced LED lighting, water conserving hydroponic or drip-irrigation systems, adjustable shelving for high yield vertical production, and a state-of-the-art HVAC system, all controlled by a specially designed PC-based microprocessor system which can be monitored from anywhere. Growtainers may be purchased as complete growing systems with nothing to set up or install –  just add seeds and start growing.
