Upper Poppleton, England -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/25/2016 -- Due to lack of farmland and space in Singapore, vertical farming methods are now becoming increasingly popular – with more farms opting to utilise high-tech, hydroponic methods to overcome limitations. Hydroponic growing not only enables people to grow in much smaller spaces but is also easier and more manageable too, requiring less maintenance.
One farm in particular Pocket Greens is a vegetable farm sized just 1,500 sq ft. It is here that three people work to harvest 30kg of vegetables daily. Another great example is Sky Greens who produce around 1,000kg of vegetables per day and have only 10 members of staff. It is anticipated that next year Sky Greens will have reached its full capacity and will be producing up to 10,000kg per day.
A spokesperson from UK hydroponics company Hydroponica was keen to comment on the growth of the Singapore hydroponics industry saying, "It is great to see Singapore reaping the benefits of hydroponic growing as it can be incredibly difficult for people in busy areas to receive fresh produce. This is also the reason why hydroponics farms have started to crop up throughout London. Hydroponics however is advantageous for so much more than these reason for example hydroponically grown produce can be more nutritional and taste better."
Hydroponica are leading providers of the best sustainable, modern growing equipment available, offering hydroponics equipment suitable for everyone from beginners to enthusiasts.
