Benefits

The SuperGrow™ Difference

Whether comparing SuperGrow to conventional field farming or Controlled Environmental Agriculture (CEA),  there’s only one solution.

The ONLY Soil-Based Grow Offering

SuperGrow is the only soil-based, fully controlled environment, container farm solution on the market today. All other CEA and container farm solutions are not fully controlled environments or the produce is grown primarily in water (hydroponic, aquaponics, aeroponic, aquatic). Such environment simply do not supply the flavor and nutrients of organic, soil-grown produce. Even field farms are struggling today, stripped of nutrients found in soil generations ago. By investing in the true nature of farming through terraponics (soil-based farming), we use soil that is enriched with micronutrients for produce bursting in flavor and nutritionally packed. Our onboard composter ensures soil quality and cycles nature’s nutrients for ongoing benefits.

The Only Organic Certified Offering

As SuperGrow is the only soil-based solution, we are also the only container farm that can guarantee 100% organic certification. This presents a huge advantage in the market today, as organic demand is on a steep rise with languishing supply from field grown and other CEA offerings. Organic produce also commands a 30% higher market value than conventional or hydroponic grown produce, further increasing your return.

Reduced Transportation Costs & Longer Shelf Life

Without a doubt, the greatest cost in agriculture is energy costs related to transportation and refrigeration. This is followed quickly by long haul packaging. These embedded costs not only increase the prices we pay, but also leads to compromises in the nutritional value of the food we eat. To make the journey, fruits and vegetables have to be picked well before maturity, limiting the chance for nutrients to be captured and retained. For volatile produce such as lettuces, nearly 60% of produce rots before reaching grocers, and an additional 20% rots while on the shelves. The industry refers to this as “shrinkage”. Consumers call it “that brown stuff”. SuperGrow moves the farm close to your “back yard” or that of your favorite retailer. The costs of transportation are completely cut out, and harvesting is done only when the produce is needed, increasing nutrition and flavor and lengthening shelf life by 9 days.

Controlled Environment

All farmers know how weather results in crop losses. By this we don’t mean climate changes, but the common hail storms, freezing temperatures, droughts, floods – all these and more contribute to damaged produce and limited crops. Simple imperfections, too, are due to pests found in our environment.   SuperGrow provides a completely controlled environment, shielded by sturdy walls, so that crops experience a perfect day, every day. Whether you’re growing produce in a desert or the cold north, you can expect a perfect harvest each day of the year. Although you’ll never use pesticides or herbicides, you can expect predictable yields with every crop. In fact 98% of our produces gets the top rating known in the industry as a “One”.

Increased Grow Rates

The perfect days are also each long summer days in our containers. This means produce grows more in the 24 hours than in field farming. SuperGrow Container™ grown produce typically matures 20% to 40% sooner than field grown produce and unlike hydroponic techniques, no transplanting is required. For example, at 21 days, our Spring Mix is fully grown and ready for harvest. Of course grow times are dependent on plant variety.

More Grow Volume for Less Cost

Further increase of grow volume occurs within the SuperGrow Container™ due to plant density of spacing. Due to the nature of field and hydroponic grow methods, a significant amount of space is wasted between plants. This results in less volume per harvest. By using a soil based grow method within a fully controlled environment, we are able to maximize our space and resources by growing produce very close together without sacrificing quality. The result is the ability to simultaneously grow more than 10,000 plants per month or over 750 pounds of produce per week! That’s two to four acres of produce a year, in a single 40-foot container.

Patented High-Level Technology

We have looked at each grow sub-system and its inherent challenges, then developed and patented technologies which increase grow volume and do so with maximum energy efficiency. Our irrigation system collects 80% of the water transpired into the air by plants and recycles it back to the plants. Our air delivery system speeds up produce growth by 35% and is 72% more efficient in its use of CO2 than other container farm offerings. Pink LED lights conserve 68% of light energy and emits only the spectrum that plants can use. Our HVAC uses a magnetically assisted, patented motor that runs on 110v and consumes 40% less energy than motors used by our competitors. Heat released from our HVAC system gets redirected into our composter to speed up the composting process. Nothing goes to waste. Furthermore, all our systems are patented 5th generation offerings, while most hydroponic offerings are 1st generation based on public domain grow methods.

Customization and Alternative Power Sources

With all the benefits on the inside, we’ve considered the shell of our container as well. To start, each container is fully customizable. We have a close partnership with Rolling Star Manufacturing who does all the container outfitting for us. You may opt to have a huddle room in yours for planning and organization, a logo on the outside for company branding, or you may want to connect two containers with a common passage way. Devoted to sustainability, our plans for upcoming models also include alternative power sources such as wind and solar, to take us completely off-grid.

Easy to Use

Ultimately, the ease of use is what’s important, and ours couldn’t be simpler. Just one entry-level grow operator is all that’s needed. Our environmental controls are supported by an automated system with proper temperature, humidity, and light settings for various plants. Planting is as easy as making a pizza with the grow operator scattering or embedding seeds as directed before putting them under the lights to watch them grow. The irrigation system senses when soil is dry and automatically waters as needed regardless of the maturity of the plants. Water hookup requires a standard garden hose, and for power we only need a common, household, standard 110v wall socket. Farming could not be simpler!
