LettUs Grow, a UK-based agritech company providing vertical container farms and software for controlled environment agriculture, is joining the Contain vendor network.
Following the height of the Covid-19 pandemic, LettUs Grow saw a significant uptick in interest in indoor agriculture and vertical farming. Nevertheless, heightened financial hardships continue to stifle entrepreneurs, field farmers, and other interested individuals and businesses from making the first step into the industry. With indoor farms often requiring high start-up costs, funding for new entrants is the trickiest element to overcome. LettUs Grow will offer its customers support in financing their indoor farming projects with Contain Inc.
LettUs Grow CEO & Founder, Jack Farmer: "A growing number of new entrant growers and entrepreneurs are turning to vertical farming, and a jumpstart in funding their container farm ventures will help secure a reliable food system that doesn't cost the earth much sooner. We need all manner of stakeholders to make sure they are growing food in the most sustainable way possible, and the entrepreneurial market has a real opportunity to pave the way for others to follow suit.”
With this new vendor relationship, LettUs Grow is excited to bring its “DROP & GROW” container farm to the masses. The container farm outfits aeroponics hardware in addition to the company's "Ostara" software. The Ostara system manages the container farm's temperature, humidity, and irrigation controls with unique crop "recipes" developed by LettUs Grow. The company continues to create and upload more crop recipes to Ostara to aid customers long past the point of sale.
"We share the belief that controlled environment agriculture is the future of farming," said Doug Harding, Head of Leasing & Vendor Relations at Contain Inc. "LettUs Grow’s technology adds immense value to the industry by helping new entrants grow crops with confidence and ease."
