Seeding to Harvesting Technology
SolarGrow SG1 container “command modules” are mobile, modular “solar powered” germination & seedling plant factories and are a major step forward in scaled horticultural plant production, due to the quantity and diversity of what it can produce. It can deal with almost any type of seeded crop, and was specifically developed for use in sustainable horticultural as well as humanitarian climate and disasters arenas, it has the ability to grow micro crops to the point where they are ready to eat within 7 days as well as planning for longer term crops.
Food Security & Instant Horticultural Infrastructures
SolarGrow SG1 command container modules can function for 24 hours a day, seven days a week, meaning operators can constantly be producing and rotating salad crops in particular. As an example, in any temperate climate it can grow 10,000 (as plugs) to 50,000+ (pricking out) tomato plant seedlings in just one week if the localized conditions are optimized and are capable. Since it can grow a wide variety of different plants its test lab can also help farmers to diversify crops, which in turn reduces expensive food transportation costs.
SolarGrow program's blend New Technologies with localized needs, most all Production equipment supplied is re-usable, drastically reducing the amount of waste produced. The target is for SG1 units is to get direct onto a site, analyse the soil and localized water options and then to begin crop re-population immediately. Once on site, SG1 can be up and running within 24 hours. It contains all necessary horticultural equipment imaginable, and meets EU Health and Safety guide-lines and can be sited anywhere as it runs on solar power.
SolarGrow SG1 units can use whatever type of water supply is available locally, our water storage & rain catchment systems are a key scaleable sub systems issue, the SG1 comes with “plug and go” standard water deep well pumps, certain models can even be used with *seawater, to which it desalinates. Once operational, the SolarGrow SG1 Germination systems operate with outstanding water efficiency. * Which Requires the SGZX1 Desalination Unit/s
