Rain Water Capture and Re-Circulating Hydroponics
The Top Sprouts greenhouses are fitted with gutters and drop channels to capture rainwater. Not only does this prevent storm water run-off but this rain water can then be stored in cisterns and used in the recirculating hydroponics systems. The rain water collected from this system may be able to offset nearly 100% of the water requirement of the greenhouse.
Re-Circulating Hydroponics uses low power motors to circulate water through channels. This method of agriculture can save up to 10X as much water as traditional field agriculture making the process highly sustainable. Top Sprouts Hydroponics systems use organic nutrients and do not use industrial chemicals in the growing process. Furthermore, Top Sprouts uses natural pest control methods without the use of harmful chemical pesticides.
