CA-based Micro Lab Farms provides automated indoor micro-farms, i.e. shipping containers.
These GrowPods allow companies to rapidly ramp up production, from seed-to-harvest in as little as eight weeks.
The pods are automated systems that grow plants indoors under fully-controlled conditions. Growers can tune the environment to the exact needs of the plant.
The containers can be operational all year without pesticides or herbicides.
With a small footprint, GrowPods can be placed anywhere, even densely populated areas or in previously inhospitable conditions.
According to the company, the automation also helps achieve higher yields than conventional agriculture.
