MICRO FARM - Our award-winning, low-carbon hydraulic vertical growing systems produce high-quality fresh fruits and vegetables for local and international markets year-round. It’s our belief that food production and consumption should be fresh, lean and clean while zeroing down on energy and food wastage.
It is only through research and innovation that countries can overcome the ever-demanding challenges of erratic climate conditions, limited arable land, water, and energy resources, Sky Greens Canada is committed to exploring innovative agricultural, engineering solutions to be at the forefront of urban agri-technological breakthroughs.
By leveraging newer technology, we have created a system that is capable of growing crops in vertically rotating layers. Through vertical growing we’re able to utilize the majority of the land by optimizing the number of plants per square meter, which leads to a largely increased crop yield.
Our Commercial quality grow towers. Allow cultivators to maximize space in cultivation and production through vertical farming. Implementing our vertical farming system will increase production by maximizing plants per square foot without increasing the footprint of the room or building. Vertical farming maximizes production capability, reduces operating costs, and increases overall revenue per square foot by as much as 10 times.
Sky Greens Canada has a team of in-house professional engineers, CAD designers, sales support. We also provide consulting to clients with unparalleled support before and after equipment installation to ensure operational success. Sky Greens Canada also offers our vertical farming systems across North America all products are proudly made in Alberta Canada!
During severe droughts, barley fodder provides valuable nutrition when fresh pasture is not available here in the Canada, the sprouted barley fodder is often brought into the ration to replace protein previously supplied by dry grain. Of course, it is also beneficial in the winter season to bring fresh forage to the animals.
Note all 3 tower sizes have the same foot print of 6ft. x 10ft.
Number of plants
3 meter tower = up to 1728 plants
6 meter tower = up to 3744 plants
9 meter tower = up to 5184 plants
High Yield - When compared with traditional monolayer farms, the Sky Greens patented vertical farming system intensifies land use and can result in at least 10 times more yield per unit land area.
High Quality - The structures are housed in a controlled environment which enables stringent control of input materials to bring about food supply, food safety, food security and food quality assurances.
High Flexibility - Made of aluminium and steel, the modular structures are robust yet highly customizable and scalable. Structures can be tailor-made to suit different crops, growing media and natural conditions, allowing cultivation on originally non-arable lands.
Low Energy Use - With the harnessing of natural sunlight, there is no need for artificial lighting. Rotation is powered by a unique patented hydraulic water-driven system which utilizes the momentum of flowing water and gravity to rotate the troughs. Only 40W of electricity (equivalent to one light bulb) is needed to power one 9 metre tower.
Low Water Use - With the plants irrigated and fertilized using a flooding method, there is no need for a sprinkler system thereby eliminating electricity wastage (as well as water wastage due to run-offs). Only 0.5 litres of water is required to rotate the 1.7 ton vertical structure. The water is contained in a enclosed reservoir system and is recycled/reused.
Low Maintenance - Being housed in a protected environment ensures that the system can be relatively maintenance-free and have low man-power dependency. The rotating troughs and intensified plant to plot ratio also means high man-power efficiency.
In the majority of North America, growing year-round outdoors is not an option due to variable weather conditions. Our new technology allows farmers to grow year-round in a fully controlled and tested environment. One 9 metre tower can house and grow up to 5000+ plants per cycle, yielding 10 times the production of traditional open-field farming.
