Vertical Farming is one of the solutions to the problem of the growing demand for food. A multilayer system uses less surface, energy and water. And production takes place all year round, resulting in a higher yield. At Bosman Van Zaal we create vertical production systems, where sustainability, convenience and a higher yield are paramount. We introduce Grow & Roll as one of the components of our vertical agricultural and horticultural systems.
on fertilisers, water and energy
With the Grow & Roll we have developed a well thought-out system, in which we combine our expertise climate, cultivation systems, water, electricity and control systems. The mobile container with multilayer carts functions as a closed laboratory for the efficient cultivation of seeds, cuttings and crops.
In the container any desired climate is simulated by means of 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 supplemental 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 movable modules. Heat exchangers enable energy recovery.
The climate is controlled by the iSii compact climate computer of partner Hoogendoorn, which measures and registers the growing 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.
