With over 35 years experience in the hydroponics industry, Doctor Blooms can help supply and fit many of the latest technological advances within horticulture. After the Coronavirus Pandemic, the world has realised the instability in the food logistics industry, with many shortages of produce seen around the world many nations are looking to the future and self sustainability. Hydroponics have never been more popular with home growers and commercial ones alike all taking a massive steps towards using hydroponic systems to grow their produce and in recent years, vertically. Traditional methods have too many variables which are difficult to control, climate change is causing shifts in temperatures and seasons and when growing outdoors pests are always more of a problem.
Moving indoors gives you freedom to harvest all year round, dial in the spectrum from your lights to improve flavours and decrease growing times. In recents years LED lighting has seen vast technological advancements which in turn has given a rise to urban & vertical farming. Which provide lower running temperatures compared to traditional HID lighting less headroom is needed, therefore allowing farmers to have multiple beds of crops over multiple levels.
Vertical farming is the way forward for the 21st Century, utilising the large headrooms of warehouses we help solve overcrowding by utilising foot space whilst also increasing production levels exponentially. These Vertical Farming methods offer the quickest ROI (return on investment) and give growers the ability to fine tune their methods to produce the tastiest and highest yielding fruits, vegetables or microgreens.
