Company announces plans to enter the $350 billion global animal feed market
Rilispedia.com – Grōv Technologies today announced its indoor, fully-automated animal feed production system with the capability to revolutionize the $350 billion global animal feed marketplace. The system, called the Grōv Pod, integrates sustainable technologies and science-based growing protocols into a controlled environment agriculture (CEA) system that uses less than 2 percent of the water and a fraction of the land needed for traditional farming. Grōv will unveil its new technology at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas on Jan. 7 to 10, 2020.
“Farmers around the world are concerned about feed security and are telling us they want dependable, sustainably produced feed for their animals. We believe our turn-key growing platform will allow for predictable and highly nutritious feed year-round, despite the effects of rapidly changing climates on traditional growing cycles,” said Steve Lindsley, president of Grōv Technologies.
Demand for local, sustainably-produced feed is expanding rapidly due to global water shortages, climate change and land degradation. The Grōv Pod, which is in beta testing, produces a daily output of more than 2 tons of wheat or barley grass, equivalent to the annual approximate yield of at least 55 acres of farm land. The system has been designed to require minimal labor and utilizes patented low-heat LED technology, robotic seed-to-harvest systems and scientifically proven growing protocols.
“Today, more than ever, consumers care about food safety, animal welfare and sustainability,” continued Lindsley. “Our science and technology solutions will give farmers the tools to potentially produce healthier animals, healthier foods and, in the end, a healthier planet.”
