A Chinese company introduces a range of intelligent hydroponics garden products for home use.
Growing plants is not necessarily a thing of interest for geeks. Chinese company iGrow could change that with what they call Agriculture 4.0.
iGrow has introduced a series of products including the iGrow intelligent hydroponics garden system to plant flowers, fruits and vegetables indoors in a simple, convenient, and sanitary way. From the seed germination to the blossom period, people only need to supply water and nutrient solution at most twice a month, with no extra work or expertise necessary.
The magic of iGrow lies in its original semi-aerosol cultivation techniques and the LED planting lighting system, combining all elements that plants need such as light, water and air. The whole system ensures sound growth of plants by its automatic control system and means plants and vegetables can be grown even in a cold winter.
"Agriculture 4.0 represents total subversion and sublimation of traditional agriculture," said Lennon Tsai, founder of iGrow. "In China, iGrow has developed a collection of indoor agricultural products, from the micro indoor planting equipment represented by automatic plant-growing machines and the garden-like office environments created by embedded planting systems, to the air farm built by the smart DFT (Deep Flowing Technique) planting system. iGrow is dedicated to pursuing a truly smart planting system that covers all variety of species of plants."
iGrow has extended its business to more than 20 countries in North and South America, Europe, Asia, and Australia. In November 2015, the company gained its first financing worth tens of millions of RMB little more than a year after its foundation and is scheduled to start its second round of financing in mid 2016.
"Now we still have a number of new ideas in the making," said Tsai, "because we are fully aware that the point is how to make our product unique. We already have a great selection of products, so together with our agents, we can create the products consumers prefer. We have already laid out a marketing network throughout the world, with top priority given to the American market this year."
To have a plant growing gadget that does not need much attention sounds intriguing and who doesn't like some fresh salad.
iGrow will exhibit in the Hardware Tools and Gardening Exhibition in Las Vegas from May 4-6.
