Indoor Harvest Corp., Houston, announces its high-efficiency bio-manufacturing platform for cannabis production and expression, as well as HVAC and LED retrofit packages for existing licensed producers. The platform technology was engineered and tested for repeatable consistent production of cannabis cultivars under extreme controlled conditions, providing precision environmental and cultivation controls.
The platform uses a medium-less aeroponic technology that our testing has shown to increase plant biomass production while reducing the use of fertilizers and water compared to other more conventional systems. By eliminating substrates such as soil, coco and rockwool from the production area, the platform removes potential contaminants from the controlled environment.
The platform also integrates environmental systems that allow for precision control over temperature, humidity and CO2 through a proprietary design that supplies airflow directly through the plant canopy.
With a fixture based design which scales to meet any specification, production size and budget, the platform was engineered specifically for controlled whole plant expression ofcannabis. Independent testing has shown biomass increases by as much as 150% compared to other more conventional systems, delivering the highest levels of plant expression, with up to an 80% reduction in operating costs over what we now view as traditional, outdated cultivation methods.
“Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA) will be a solution to many problems that the public faces today and in the future,” said John Zimmerman4, PE, director of HVAC at Indoor Harvest. “Whether you are talking about the food safety issues experienced by reputable companies to the growing need to produce cannabis for medical use, CEA will play an ever-increasing role in solving these problems.
“We are providing a controlled metric at the leaf and canopy level separate from the ambient air, giving finite control over plant response.”
Indoor Harvest has established a strategic alliance with Noesis to provide equipment and project financing to qualified cannabis producers and researchers for complete platform build-outs as well as retrofit packages for existing producers looking to reduce their operating costs. Also availble for financing are bundled LED lighting solutions from premium brands such as illumitex® and HVAC packages designed to reduce energy use in cases where a complete platform is not required.
“We took our time to properly develop and test a platform that has shown proven performance and efficiency,” said Indoor Harvest CEO Chad Sykes. “Years of R&D through key industry partnerships have developed an affordable, scalable platform and suite of supporting products.
“Now through our alliance with Noesis, not only can we provide some of the best engineered systems, we can also now offer financing and leasing options for those systems. Being able to start off a conversation with a potential client by offering financing and leasing options gives us a competitive advantage.”
Indoor Harvest Corp, through its brand name Indoor Harvest®, is a full-service, state-of-the-art design-build engineering firm for the indoor farming industry. Providing production platforms and complete custom designed build outs for both greenhouse and building integrated agriculture (BIA) grows, tailored to the specific needs of virtually any cultivar. Our patent-pending aeroponic fixtures are based upon a modular concept in which primary components are interchangeable.
