Agriculture is the backbone of India's economy, and with the growing population, the demand for food is also increasing. To meet this demand, farmers are looking for new ways to increase their crop yield without harming the environment. A good example of this is the Indoor Farm Guwahati, a vertical hydroponics farm in Northeast India that contacted Indian Hydroponics to install a new cultivation setup dubbed project Proper Grow.
The Indoor Farm Guwahati now uses advanced hydroponic technology to grow a wide variety of crops, including leafy greens, herbs, and vegetables. The farm has a vertical growing system that allows plants to be grown in multiple layers, increasing the number of plants that can be grown in a limited space. This vertical system also reduces the farm's carbon footprint by using less energy and water compared to traditional farming methods.
"The vertical hydroponics farm now uses the automated system we've installed to monitor and adjust the temperature, humidity, and nutrient levels in the water. This ensures that the plants receive the optimal growing conditions throughout their lifecycle, resulting in healthier and more robust crops," says Senior Project & Operations Manager Mr. Chandramani Kumar.
"The vertical hydroponics farm at Indoor Farm Guwahati is a testament to the growing trend of sustainable agriculture. By using advanced hydroponic technology, renewable energy sources, and precise growing conditions, this farm is able to produce high-quality crops while minimizing its impact on the environment. This farm is a model for the future of agriculture, and it is sure to inspire other farmers to adopt sustainable practices to meet the growing demand for food in a changing climate," says Ashutosh Thapliyal, COO- Chief Operating Officer over at Indian Hydroponics
Indoor Farm Guwahati is now the largest indoor farm in the region, with a capacity of over 13,000 plants.
