Green Life Farms, Hydronov Team Up to Build Hydroponic Farm

Green Life Farms is partnering with Hydronov to design, construct and provide technology for its state-of-the-art hydroponic farm in Boynton Beach, Florida.

Green Life Farms will grow premium baby leafy greens year-round at its Boynton Beach facility. The company will begin commercial operation in the first half of 2019. 

Green Life Farms will use Hydronov’s deep-water floating raft technology (FRT) to grow baby leafy greens for supermarkets, restaurants, cruise ships and other customers.

FRT helps conserve water, allowing a buffer for fertilization and oxygen control, and provides an integrated Harvest Transportation System. This uses the water in which the plants grow as a conveyer system, eliminating the costs and maintenance associated with mechanical conveyers. No water is lost through soil or growing media; there is no direct evaporation by the sun, no dumping of growing solution and no dripping gutters. The FRT system leads to higher productivity, producing up to 18 crop harvests per year versus the five harvests per year with soil-based greenhouse growers.
