Leafy Greens Vertical Farming Result

Veg Growth is a private company that employs a sustainable approach to farming. Providing consumers with organically grown pesticide/herbicide and GMO free produce is their goal and is good for people and the planet. Conserving resources is also good for our bottom line. Everything can be recycled, including water and nutrients.Produce is harvested 365 days a year with the goal- farm to table in 24 hours.
At the beginning of 2015, VANQ and Veg Growth have partnered to develop the leafy greens vertical farming using LED grow lights tailored to their specific crops. This innovative farming model allows Veg Growth to harvest 20 times a year by using ‘light recipes’ optimized for their produce, using 40% less energy. The result will be an increase in crop yields and reduced operating costs, while providing consumers with locally grown, fresh vegetables throughout the year. Veg growth has invested firmly to renovate and equip indoor growing facilities combined more than 10,000 sqrft which use VANQ energy-efficient LED solutions tailored to their specific requirement.
By growing our crops vertically with LED lights, we are able to pack more plants per acre than we would have in a field farm, which results in more harvests per year. We produce little waste,no agricultural runoff and minimal greenhouse gasses because the food is grown where it is consumed, reduce the food miles and improve freshness.
