A construction manufacturer of greenhouses has created an alliance with an agtech and supplier of patented hydroponic farming systems.
Sprung Structures' and ZipGrow's combined technologies offer a solution to food security, especially in remote areas or those vulnerable to supply-chain disruptions. Leafy greens, lettuce, bok choy, and herbs like basil and chives are grown vertically in patented towers in a year-round growing season.
"Demand for innovative, sustainable food production has never been greater, especially in remote communities and the hurricane-prone Caribbean regions most affected when the supply chain is disrupted," said Tim Sprung, vice president of Sprung.
"We have been in search of an alliance where we can deliver our customers a comprehensive solution that includes our ZipGrow Tower system and a greenhouse that complements our offering," added Eric Lang, president and co-founder of ZipGrow.
Meanwhile, Sprung's greenhouses can be rapidly deployed, often in as little as eight weeks. Together, their hydroponic indoor farming system provides highly efficient food production and unparalleled reliability, ensuring communities, businesses, and organizations are empowered to achieve self-sufficiency and improved food security.
