VERTICAL FARM ITALIA

VERTICAL FARM ITALIA

An easy to build and manage, low-cost, self-sufficient, adaptable, aquaponic Vertical Farm . In just 3 sqm, you can grow 600 plants (vegetable and fruit) and up to 10 kg fish thanks to the aquaponic technique that mix recirculating aquaculture with hydroponic. This Vertical Farm is designed to be energetically self-sufficient, thanks to a photovoltaic system with storage battery system, and to minimize resources consumption. Indeed, water, fish feeding and compost required can be recovered thanks to integration among a system for rainwater collection and a vermicompost. The Vertical Farm is a small ecosystem that can be monitored, remote-controlled and fully automatized, reducing work hours.
