GALLONS OF WATER SAVED PER TOWER PER DAY
ACRES OF FARMLAND REPLACED PER TOWER
Before Utah’s searing, mega-drought summer, came the winter storm of 2021. In February tornadoes and ice storms swept across the nation causing massive damage. Hardest hit was Texas, where millions lost power, over 200 people died and economic damage exceeded $195 billion.
✔️ A fraction of the land ✔️ A fraction of the water ✔️ No herbicides or pesticides—Grōv Technologies President Steve Lindsley speaks to Madison Mills on how he sees vertical farming as holding the key to meeting an expanding strain on global agriculture
For five years, Fast Company’s World Changing Ideas Awards have recognized companies and organizations addressing the world’s most intractable problems through technology, science, design, finance, education, and philanthropy.
Four years ago, Ritch Wood was looking for a better way to grow plants. As the CEO of global skincare company Nu Skin, he ran into ingredient shortages every winter when fields went dormant―and when he moved grow operations to the equator he ran into water and land shortages, along with a host of quality control issues.
Along Utah’s Highway 68 in the small community of Elberta, Utah stands an industrial dome. Inside is a futuristic collection of stacked shelves, towering 25 feet tall, that systematically flicker with pink lights.
Grōv Technologies’ first adopter is Bateman's Mosida Farms in Utah County. The family-owned farm is the largest dairy operation in the state. Co-owner Brad Bateman said the system they installed offered their farm numerous benefits, ranging from localizing their supply chain to reducing their carbon footprint. He added, however, that any agricultural producer makes the decision to adopt new technology for a very practical reason.
Animal Ag vertical farming newcomer Grov Technologies, which was acquired by Nu Skin Enterprises (NYSE:NUS) in 2016, announced in December 2020, the company was collaborating with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to apply cloud-based machine learning…
MOSIDA, Utah – Not too far south of Salt Lake City, you will find the Bateman Dairy Farm. It’s a farm where the cattle have quite the view. The Wasatch Mountain Range rises up across Utah Lake.
A vertical farm growing feed for dairy cows is teaming up with Amazon to improve the nutritional value of crops grown indoors. Last month, Utah-based Grov Technologies announced the launch of an indoor vertical farm the startup says can grow wheat and barley…
Grōv Technologies, the maker of a method for growing plants indoors in controlled conditions called Olympus Tower Farm, announced today a collaboration with Amazon Web Services Inc. to bring cloud-based machine learning to its operating system to streamline its processes.
Something new on the farm, robotic vertical farming. Check out this Utah farm. Automated towers grow fresh animal feed using high-efficiency L-E-D and minimal water. The seed-to-harvest process takes only six days and produces 6-thousand pounds of feed per cycle.
A single tower in the growing system, from a startup called Grōv Technologies, takes up a little more than 850 square feet on the ground. But it can grow as much wheat or barley grass as 35 to 50 acres of farmland, the company says.
Grōv says each one of the towers produces 6,000 lbs of food each time it goes through its cycle and that’s saving money, time, water, and energy, and the benefits don’t stop there either, they are then passed on to the consumer. Each of these machines represents between 35 and 50 acres of land, so in this case here, it’s the same as 50 acres of land but it’s only covering 875 square feet of the ground and it uses 95% less water to grow the crops, said Lindsley.
The key is you can eliminate the weather challenges and it can give you a predictable optimized crop every time," said Steve Lindsley, the president of Grōv Technologies. It starts with wheat seeds being loaded into trays. Then, they're wheeled up to the top of the tower to start a six-day journey back down to the bottom of the tower for harvest.
Inside a new tent-like building on a large dairy farm west of Provo, Utah, tall towers stacked with trays of wheatgrass grow food for the cows outside. While most other vertical farms focus on growing salad greens for city dwellers, the new system is designed to tackle another…
Grōv's team of botanists, animal nutritionists and engineers have spent years developing science and technology-based growing protocols for Olympus that produces unmatched high-density nutrient (HDN) feed and in trials has shown to provide health benefits for the animals and improved feed-to-yield efficiency.
