IT'S ALL ABOUT THE RETURN ON INVESTMENT (ROi)

Whether in money terms or performance our drive is to offer you the best solution you can invest in. The simple facts are these:

Tiny Yield x Big Cost = Poor ROi

High Yield x Lower Cost = Good ROi

V-FARM IMPROVES YOUR YIELD!

In your farm, what will be the ratio of growing space per metre of the total space? A ratio should be around 2:1 for a standard plant factory. V-Farm is over 4:1!

BENEFITS OF THE V-FARM PATENTED RACK SYSTEM OVER STANDARD VERTICAL SYSTEMS

One of our main patents is based on moving racks so that you only ever have one isle for maintenance / harvesting thus saving up to a third of the space thus increasing possible yield by one third.

This represents a

30% Increase in Yield

from space efficiency alone.

V-FARM REDUCES YOUR COSTS

LABOUR

Growing in standard building conditions with eve height of up to 4m or multi floor buildings means that people will be standing mostly on ground. This makes labour cheaper as there is less time wasted on lifts and it’s easier to spot issues. This sort of installation also carries a lot lower risk of HSE/OSHA issues than huge warehouse installations. All of our systems are IP67, all food grade and jet washable for easy wash downs between crops.

ENERGY

Energy will be one of the biggest ongoing costs to your vertical farm business. Reducing energy costs will therefore make your business potentially more profitable. In V-Farm systems, closing up the racks together utilises light efficiency better leading to less power needs. Due to our moving tray system we can also add different lights at different stages giving flexibility leading to power savings.

WATER

Agriculture and Horticulture need to start using a lot less water in future - that may well be one of the factors that attracted you to vertical farming in the first place! Due to our unique moving flood method and take off we can get more levels in a given area. Competitors use large tanks under the crops to irrigate where as we don’t need to.
