What is Indoor Vertical Hydroponics Farms?

Vertical Farming is essentially using limited space and resources to grow plants in controlled environments in areas that may not otherwise be conducive to either year-round growth or growth cycles that are fast enough to fully meet demand.

It has vertical NFT shelves rather than horizontal. And requires control of temperature, light, and humidity.

Hydroponics is a method of growing plants without soil in a horizontal or vertical fashion, where mineral nutrients are provided through the water. Hydroponic systems that allow growing of plants in a vertical fashion are known as vertical Hydroponics.

Which is better, Horizontal Hydroponic or Vertical Hydroponic?

Starting a nutrient film technique (NFT) hydroponic setup can be quite a challenge for any grower trying to grow commercially. The key question is whether you should grow horizontally or vertically. Well, it is (almost) all a question of space!

Horizontal NFT systems are best suited for larger spaces and for maximizing the growth of the plants.
Vertical NFT systems are best suited for smaller spaces and faster yields as they limit the maximum growth of the plant.

The nutrient film technique (NFT) in Hydroponics is one of the six main types of Hydroponics techniques. It has reached mainstream popularity because it’s often considered the most efficient technique out there. The principle behind NFTs is simple. Net pots are lined on an inclined grow channel. The roots receive a continuous flow of a thin stream of nutrient rich solution carried by those channels.

Why Hydroponic is the future of farming?

Advantages Indoor Vertical Hydroponics Farms

  • Vertical farming takes much less space or utilizes space in a much better way. So, a real advantage of vertical indoor farming is that it take so much less space or utilizes or repurposes older spaces like buildings that are no longer being used to grow plants or food sources.

  • Vertical indoor farming is climate controlled so it can be done year-round regardless of environmental challenges.

  • Vertical indoor farming is highly predictable due to the sophisticated systems that are now employed in commercial growing operations. Technological advances including highly effective grow lighting can not only aid in providing an optimal grow environment, but in fact, they can aid in making crop production more predictable and help to accelerate the grow cycle so that more can be produced in a lesser amount of time.

  • Vertical indoor farming is environmentally friendly and safe. Vertical NFT systems are best suited for smaller spaces and faster yields as they limit the maximum growth of the plant.

  • Vertical farming can reduce labor, transportation, and other associated growing costs.

What to Expect

The location of the Hydroponics project is very important . The land should have proper access to water, electricity , power backup and a connectivity to market. Agriplast do site survey before starting the project and give the insight of project feasibility.
Greenhouse structure of the hydroponic farm provides a protected environment for the crops. Two type of greenhouse is mainly used for Hydroponics project . one is Naturally ventilated polyhouse and second is Fan & Pad polyhouse type. We do a complete weather data analysis to select the right Greenhouse structure for the project.
The selection of The growing system depends on the type of crop you want to grow in the farm. NFT system is suitable for Leafy crops like lettuce, kale, Rocket , Spinach and basil for vine crops like tomato and cucumber, the Dutch bucket system or grow bag system is suitable.
A good climate control system is required for automatic operation of greenhouse equipments to get best climate possible for the plants. Climate control system can be selected basic system to IOT system. Agriplast have its own manufacturing of Climate control system and also is the channel partner of PRIVA Holland to provide best system to its client.
Nutrient dosing system is most crucial item in Hydroponics farm. As In Hydroponics we don’t use soil so Nutrient mixing with water should be accurate and monitored continuously. We are the channel partner with Auto grow New Zealand to provide best dosing system to all our Hydroponics farm.
Agriplast gives proper training to each of its client at his own farm to make sure that client ground staff gets proper knowledge and operations of their hydroponic farm and will be able to do, day to day activities at the farm. Our services include complete agronomist support which includes recipe making as well.

Why Choose Agriplast Hydroponics

Custom System and Consulting

Our Each project is tailored made for customer as per his requirement with best industry practices. We specialize in recirculating, sustainable hydroponic turnkey projects.

Inhouse Manufacturing Facility

We are the only company in India who provides Hydroponics and polyhouse structure all together . No third party is involved for structure part. Which ensure all quality work with on time project completion and unmatched service support.

THIRD GENERATION NFT CHANNEL

Compared with round pipe and square pipe, we only need much less water to the vegetables. What's more, water will only flow in Centre part with our channel, while it may go sides with flat bottom channel from other suppliers.

Slope Adjuster table

Uniform slope of the NFT channels is very important in Hydroponics as with uniform slope all plants get similar nutrient flow in the roots.
Agriplast tables can be adjusted by simply moving a nobe attached to the tables each column.

Completely Food Grade

Right from NFT channels, Nutrient supply & drain pipe and head unit's fittings are made of uPVC material which is food Grade, heavy metal free.

In house Experts

Agriplast has Inhouse Designers , Structural, Electrical and software engineers and Agronomist with collective 50+ year of experience to ensure the best project execution and unmatched service support to our clients.

BEST AUTOMATION

We provide best automation system in the industry to our all-Hydroponics project.
Our automation system monitor and control all important parameters of the Hydroponics set up. Using the IOT technology complete system can be accessed via Computer , tablet or smartphone.
We are the channel partner with Industry auto grow New Zealand for Hydroponics set up automation System.

EBB & FLOW NURSERY

Agriplast uses ebb and flow technology for the nursery of the plants. Ebb and flow gives best results as each net pot get same uniform water and nutrient.
After certain weeks Net pot directly can be shifted from Ebb and Flow to NFT system and ready for next lot.
Ebb and flow has separate circulation pumps and tank than NFT system which makes nutrient management easy and efficient.

Training and Support

Agriplast has Inhouse subject experts in all the aspects of Greenhouse and Hydroponics who leads our project team in PAN India and more than 15 countries.
