Vertical Farming is one of the solutions to the problem of the growing demand for food. A multilayer system uses less surface area, energy and water. And production takes place all year round, resulting in higher yields.
At Bosman Van Zaal, we create vertical production systems in existing and new buildings, often in urban environments, where sustainability, convenience and higher yields are paramount. We introduce the Grow & Roll as one of the components of our vertical agricultural and horticultural systems. With the Grow & Roll we have developed a well thought out system, combining our expertise in climate, growing systems, water, electricity and control systems. The mobile container with multi-layer carts acts as a closed laboratory for the efficient cultivation of seeds, cuttings and crops.
In the container, any desired climate is simulated by adjusting temperature, humidity, light, CO2 and irrigation. Each module has its own docking station including water connection and electrical connection for dimmable LED lamps with white growth light and UV for disinfection of air and water. Air circulation can be fine-tuned. Moisture and temperature problems are thus reduced to a minimum. Disinfection of the container is made easy by the moveable modules. Heat exchangers make energy recovery possible.
The climate is controlled with the iSii compact climate computer of partner Hoogendoorn, which measures and registers the cultivation conditions. This makes analyses easily available via the internet. With the Grow & Roll you grow constantly, efficiently and quickly, you save space, water and energy and you realise a higher and clean production.
