Gain Canopy Square Footage Without Sacrificing Quality

First and foremost, having a seamless and effective workflow is essential for scaling an indoor farming cultivation facility. 

Gaining square footage without purchasing more space or increasing facility costs is essential to maximize productivity and profits. This is where vertical farming comes in to elevate operations. 

However, facilities may face some common issues after converting from single-tier to multi-tier indoor farming. One of the biggest things that gets overlooked while scaling is losing accessibility and how easy it is for your employees to manage the cultivation space.

When designing your Vertical Grow Rack System, it is critical to consider ergonomics. There has been debate about a 4 ft wide rack versus a 5 ft wide rack. A 5 ft wide vertical grow rack might allow for a few more plants per level, but the benefit does not outweigh the risk of the challenge that extra foot creates for your employees and your plants. Gaining square footage while sacrificing comfort in the workplace should not be the goal.

A 5 ft or wider vertical grow rack creates a challenge ergonomically for your employees to service the center or underside of the canopy. Additionally, the plants along the perimeter of the tray can be damaged while your team is reaching over the canopy. 

So how do you gain canopy square footage without sacrificing quality? Make the switch to the industry-leading provider in mobile vertical grow racking systems – Pipp Horticulture.
