I need help!
I just returned home (Cleveland) from visiting vertical farms in Shanghai, Osaka, and Tokyo. Myself, 3 of my colleagues, and 28 other members from various lighting organizations were part of the tour group. We saw some really cool systems all using hydroponics. We visited the most automated grow farm (small scale at a university in Osaka) and we toured one the largest indoor grow farms (Tokyo) producing 10,000 lettuce heads (4 types) per day.
I joined the tour group convinced that we could harvest hop plants indoors using grow lights and a hydroponic system. My boss (president and founder) of Sansi Technology, is somewhat unfamiliar with hop plants and its demand, but is very intrigued with the process being able to work.
If anyone knows of any breweries interested in adapting an indoor grow farm to grow hops, we can make it very easy for them as our test pilot. Our lights can go in any direction, at any length, provide any spectrum, and can be managed right from your phone. Within the system, we can control all variables including temperature and air circulation.
Please message me if you know of any interest!
