Las Vegas — Indoor Farms of America announces today the company is now preparing to launch a version of its Container Farms that will be energy independent and water independent, allowing deployment of the farms anywhere in the world.
"We have been working on this for quite some time, and these enhancements to our farm products will be available in production form by the end of Q1 this year", according to David Martin, CEO of Indoor Farms of America.
"From the beginning of our company's existence, we have been, and remain on a path of improvement of what we know to be the best indoor agricultural equipment in existence, and to bring it to every corner of the world in a cost effective manner.  We are achieving milestones each month in that regard." states Martin.
The company has container farms in operation across the U.S. and will be shipping multiple container farms to countries around the globe this spring.  "We are continually humbled by the visits we receive to our facility in Las Vegas from the brightest people in agriculture. It is what drives us to keep making it better, to fulfill our purpose as a company," commented Ron Evans, President of IFOA.
Sales and delivery of larger vertical indoor farm formats produced by IFOA, such as those in warehouse facilities, has increased rapidly, and the company is working with some of the largest companies in the world that produce or process food due to the extremely attractive financial metrics the equipment represents, according to Martin.  He added: "We recently installed a warehouse farm in Salamanca New York, when outside temps were four degrees, and the owners are amazed at what their new farm represents.  They have compared our equipment to every other form of indoor growing, and chose us hands down. They are particularly focused on operating a very green farm, and use geothermal for heating of their facility, which means superior fresh greens of any kind, and strawberries, which they are starting to grow, all year long no matter what the weather is like outside."
"The use of our patented mineral uptake system allows them to use rocks from the lands they own and speaks to their culture in meaningful ways, while lessoning dependence on costly supplemental inputs into the system to yield food that tastes fantastic." said Evans.
The company will be exhibiting its patented vertical aeroponic equipment, which provides growing capacities in excess of 40 plants per square foot of floor space in an operating height of just 8 feet, at numerous events in coming months.
Upcoming events in February, including at the World Ag Expo in Tulare, CA from February 14th to the 16th, and at the Aglanta show for indoor agriculture being held in Atlanta, GA on February 19th will allow more folks to see and touch this amazing crop growing equipment, according to Evans.
