GROWING FRIENDS & ORGANIZATIONS
Check out some of our growing friends and clients from around the world. Their dedication to sustainable agriculture is changing the world one harvest at a time.
Some of our partner organizations that are working to advance sustainable farming techniques and building the hydroponic industry one grow at a time.
Hydroponics is an agricultural solution that is being embraced across the U.S. and around the world. These efficient systems grow plants like lettuce, herbs, tomatoes, cucumbers and cannabis in water-based, nutrient-rich solutions without the use of soil. Hydroponic systems are a perfect solution. When compared with soil-based farming, they are:
> More Sustainable… Consuming 1/10th the water and 1/6th the fertilizer of soil-based farms
> More Consistent… Producing predictable quantities and quality for better crop yields
> More Efficient… Producing 10x the amount of crops per area of soil-based farms
> More Clean… Growing crops without pesticides or manure (reducing pathogen risks)
> More Local… Growing closer to markets – on small foot prints near, or in urban centers
American Hydroponics has been designing and building innovative hydroponic systems for over 30 years. Our NFT, Vine Crop and Medical Crop (cannabis) systems are growing all over the U.S. and in over 60 countries. Do you want a proven, efficient, clean and dependable system? We can design one for you, whether it be channel-based or built with bato buckets. We have proprietary technology and a seasoned support team that will help you optimize your growing operation.
We want to make it easy for you for get growing. So, we have developed and packaged important services, subscriptions and product kits for you. You can get a complete hydroponic system or a subscription of seeds and nutrients. Need your water tested or a custom nutrient formulation? We have you covered. How about business planning services or a greenhouse or lighting package. Call us.
There is almost $20B worth of crops grown hydroponically worldwide each year. U.S. hydroponic production is projected to grow at twice the rate of the rest of the world. Why? With 70% of the world’s freshwater and 40% of its ice-free land already used for agriculture, our growing population and changes in climate require more efficient farming methods.
Our team of growers and engineers has helped design and set up operations ranging in size from a small garage to several acres. We love all new hydroponic customers and projects. So give us a call.
