What is AEROponics?

AEROponics is an innovative growing technique that has #RootsInTheAir:

they're NOT in soil as traditional farming, and they're NOT submerged in water as HYDROponics.

So, the plant is nourished by being sprayed ONLY with the water and nutrients

that it needs, with 0 pesticides.

Although it is not a new concept, at CleanGreens Solutions we developed our own

AEROponics mobile system, GREENOVA, to grow unique.

AEROponics how does it work

AEROponics 101

In any AEROponics system there is always a constant: above there is a light source that gives

direct light to the crops,

then a structure or support that holds them.

Below you can see the beauty of the roots in the air,

and underneath all, sprayers of water and nutrients. 

There are many ways to do AEROponics,

but they are all done in semi-closed or closed environments, also called Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA).

What is GREENOVA?

GREENOVA is the name of the patented mobile AEROponics system designed by CleanGreens Solutions.

It offers growers a highly automated solution for producing high-quality crops with minimal labor

and intrants. It is cost-effective and sustainable.

Reducing risks

Besides reducing labor and giving better conditions

for employees in terms of ergonomy, sun protection and 0 contamination for pesticides,

our system also minimizes the risk of human error.

The system operates in a closed environment meaning that plants are protected from pests, diseases, and other contaminants, ensuring that the crops are safe and healthy, as your crew.

A stress-free Greenhouse!

Automated agriculture

GREENOVA allows you to automate labor-intensive tasks, such as moving the crop modules.

The system relies on a metal structure that carries the plants through the growth cycle, eliminating the

need for manual labor.

Automated systems control the amount of water and nutrients and the frequency of irrigation, ensuring optimal growing conditions and high-quality crops.

Easy to use tech

GURU App: designed to be hassle-free, it also features the development of a user-friendly interface that makes it simple for growers to monitor

and manage their operations.

.

The system is equipped with sensors that

monitor the movement, alerting growers to any issues that may arise.

 

Greenhouse managers can also access real-time data

on crop performance and adjust settings as needed

to ensure optimal growth and yield, and much more.

Differences with
HYDROponics

AEROponics is actually an modern evolution of HYDROponics, where the roots are submerged in water. With AEROponics, the roots are left in the air

and fed by spraying them with a water-rich solution.

Both methods offer advantages over traditional soil-based agriculture, including reduced water usage, fewer pests and diseases, and most of all being independent to climatic conditions to produce all year-long. However, there are some key differences between them that growers should consider when choosing an indoor growing method.

For us, AEROponics is the best option. See why:

HYDROponics vs AEROponics

Phytosanitary risks

Reduce the risk of cross-contamination by the simple fact of having independent roots in the air and not sharing a growing medium or sharing water.

Crop Variety

A wider variety of crops 

to grow: baby leaf, romaine lettuce and spinach, among many others. Shape and weight: romaine lettuce retains its compact shape and can weigh up to 600g, compared to 300g for HYDROponics. 

Use of resources

Use 60% LESS water than HYDROponics. Also save in soil and nutrients. It takes 10 liters of water to produce 1kg of lettuce, compared to the average of 25 liters needed with HYDROponics.

Root health

Get healthier roots: misting them with a nutrient-rich solution while they hang in the air creates an ideal environment for rooth grow, respiration and efficiency.

Shelf life

Thanks to a stronger cell structure you will get plants

with a longer shelf life.

Industrial efficiency

Continuous sanitation:

365 days of production a year. No crop cycle lost for sanitation and system clean-up (like in HYDROponics) for the best industrial efficiency and maximized income.
