Our Technology

AeroFarms is the commercial leader in indoor farming. We grow without sun or soil in a fully-controlled indoor environment. We have optimized our aeroponic growing system for faster harvest cycles, predictable results, superior food safety and less environmental impact.

Smart Aeroponics

We use aeroponics to mist the roots of our greens with nutrients, water, and oxygen. Our aeroponic system is a closed loop system, using 95% less water than field farming, 40% less than hydroponics and a fraction of the nutrients and zero pesticides.

 

Smart Light

We use LED lights to create a specific light recipe for each plant, giving the greens exactly the spectrum, intensity, and frequency they need for photosynthesis in the most energy-efficient way possible.  This engineered lighting allows us to control size, shape, texture, color, flavor, and nutrition with razor-sharp precision and increased productivity.

 

Smart Nutrition

We are constantly monitoring all of the macro- and micronutrients for our plants to provide them with everything that they need to thrive.  We are able to take the exact same seed from the field and grow it in half the time as a traditional field farmer, leading to 75 times more productivity per square foot than a commercial field farm.

Smart Data

Our plant scientists monitor more than 30,000 data points every harvest. They are constantly reviewing, testing and improving our growing system using predictive analytics to create a superior and consistent result. With remote monitoring and controls in place, we have minimized the typical risks associated with traditional agriculture.

 

Smart Substrate

We have developed a patented, reusable cloth medium for seeding, germinating, growing, and harvesting. Our growing cloth medium is made out of post-consumer, recycled plastic, each taking 24 water bottles out of the waste stream. The cloth can be fully sanitized after harvest and reseeded with no risk of contamination. Acting as a barrier between the mist and the plants, the cloth allows us to harvest a clean, dry and ready to eat product.

Smart Pest Management

Every aspect of our growing process has been optimized to mitigate pest proliferation with no need for pesticides. In addition to our controlled, indoor environment, our growing methods disrupt the normal life cycle of common indoor pests so that they never get started. With our pest-resistant design, pesticides, herbicides and fungicides are unnecessary.

 

Smart Scaling

The size and configuration of an AeroFarms system are highly customizable. The systems are comprised of modules that serve as building blocks that can be stacked vertically or lengthwise. This allows us to grow in varied locations and achieve ultimate yield per square foot, no matter the space, with quick installation.
