Farming is going both urban as well as vertical and tools like these are going to be the staples of this new city-centric approach to agriculture.
Oakland, CA (PRWEB) December 02, 2011
GrowOp Technology, the nation’s first medical marijuana-friendly hydroponics manufacturing company, announced today that it has officially launched its line of hi-tech digital environmental controllers for indoor and urban agriculture.
“Managing a large scale indoor cultivation effort is a time consuming and tedious process, fraught with significant opportunities for error. Automation is a core focus for GrowOp and our tools help significantly increase productivity and yields while reducing the margin for error,” said Derek Peterson, CEO and founder of GrowOp Tech.
GrowOp’s Lineup includes everything needed to manage large scale indoor farms from its ‘Chrono’ timers to its crown jewel the ‘Atmos D1’. These devices are designed to streamline indoor cultivation by automating and monitoring most of the key components associated with indoor gardening. Simply plug into your computer via a USB cable and program your temperature, C02 and other settings according to your personal specifications.
These systems are completely customizable to control everything from humidity levels, lighting sequences, and C02 levels with absolute precision utilizing patented infrared/NDIR technology.
“As more cultivation moves indoors urban farmers need a new set of tools to regulate and manage these operations. The global population is growing exponentially forcing us to seek out and adopt alternative methods for food production. Indoor, vertical, and greenhouse cultivation are potential answers to many of our existing agricultural limitations, and the development of technologies like these are paramount in its success,” suggests Russell Winnett, COO and lead design engineer of GrowOp Tech.
These controllers, combined with the high-tech indoor hydro and aeroponic systems that GrowOp manufactures are poised to become the plows and tractors of this new paradigm of cultivation technology.
“Farming is going both urban as well as vertical and tools like these are going to be the staples of this new city-centric approach to agriculture,” said Peterson.
GrowOp Technology is featured in National Geographic's new documentary "The Marijuana Gold Rush" premiering on December 2nd.
GrowOp Technology is the first honest hydroponics manufacturer, distributing products that line the shelves of retailers across the US, Canada and Europe. GrowOp was the original manufacturer of the large-scale mobile hydroponic grow rooms, the "Big Bud" and "little Bud".
