Grow More Food Faster and with Fewer Resources

Tower Farms

What is aeroponics?

An advanced form of hydroponics, aeroponics is the process of growing plants with only water and nutrients. This innovative method results in faster growth, healthier plants, and bigger yields — all while using fewer resources.

  • Plants grow in a soilless medium called rockwool.
  • A 20-gallon reservoir holds a liquid nutrient solution made of water and earth minerals.
  • Controlled by a timer, a low-wattage submersible pump propels the nutrient solution to the top of the tower.
  • Nutrient solution cascades down the inside of the tower, oxygenating and feeding exposed plant roots.

Advantages of vertical aeroponics with Tower Farms

Agriculture is a thriving industry — new farming businesses are sprouting up all over the world. Tower Farms can help yours be successful in the following ways:

Farm almost anywhere

You can grow food in a variety of unlikely places — indoors and out — thanks to the unique design of our vertical aeroponic growing systems. To get started, all you really need is about 200 square feet, a clean water source, electrical outlet, and sunlight (or grow lights).

Maximize yields in minimal space with up to 250,000 plants per acre

A single Tower Farms unit takes up less than 6 sq ft. and uses stackable sections that can hold four plants each. (So, an 11 section-tall unit accommodates 44 plants.) That means you can produce up to 10x more food than a conventional farm of the same size — without paying for extra land.

Deliver 30% more product to market, 3x faster

The Tower Farms aeroponic growing process produces up to 30% greater yields3 3x faster compared to traditional farming methods.4 For most herbs and leafy greens, the seedling to harvest cycle can be as short as 21 days.

Grow sustainably and use up to 98% less water

With closed-loop technology, Tower Farms systems recycle water and nutrients. In turn, they use up to 98% less water than conventional farms, which is especially critical for those growing in drought-stricken regions.

Choose from more than 150 plants

Many hydroponic farming systems limit what you can grow. But Tower Farms supports more than 150 different plants — from delicate herbs and greens to hearty fruiting crops, such as tomatoes and squash. As a result, you can adapt your crop selection strategy on the fly to meet market demand.

Cultivate a superior product that sells at a premium price

When you grow an urban farm, you reduce food transportation time. That means your produce retains peak freshness and flavour. Plus, aeroponic methods actually increase the nutrient density of some crops, such as kale, tomatoes, and squash.

Invest in a farm that lasts a lifetime

Unlike most white plastics used in agriculture — which degrade with time and solar radiation — the FDA food grade-compliant, UV-stabilized plastic we use is designed to survive decades. So you can focus on farming, not replacing equipment every season.

Prevent common farming problems

By growing crops off the ground, you reduce the risk of soil-borne pests and plant diseases. And since each tower grows independently, you can isolate and address any issues that do arise without jeopardizing your entire farm (unlike many hydroponic systems, which connect growing units to a common reservoir — allowing problems to spread and wipe out a farm overnight).

Control the growing climate and ensure reliable results

For soil-based farmers, a change in weather can be the difference between a record harvest and a debilitating season. But with Tower Farms, you never have to worry about droughts or floods. And if you grow indoors or in a greenhouse, you can even control temperature, light, humidity, and other variables to consistently produce predictable yields, regardless of the weather.

Simplify the farming process

Farming is hard work. But Tower Farms makes it easier by automating feeding and watering cycles, eliminating weeding and digging, and minimizing pest risk. And if you need help along the way, you’ll have full access to our farming resources and guidance from fellow farmerpreneurs.

Tower Farms technology allows you to grow food without soil while using only 10% of the land required by traditional agriculture.
