Growing trellised vegetables downward on rotatable tubes
INCREASES PRODUCTIVITY; REDUCES CULTIVATION LABOR
POC test in commercial greenhouse
Growing vegetables on rotatable tubes eliminates the need of trellising, leaning & lowering
• Trellising done by gravity
• Leaning & Lowering done by tubes rotation
• Shorter ripening time
• Less Inflorescence damage
• Less stem junction damage
• Less viruses infection due to less human touch
• Clean floor => Less pests
• Pure organic material after uprooting the plants
(no trellising plastic wires and parts)
• Ideal solution for urban agriculture
• Excess water collected
• All trellised vegetables - tomatoes; cucumbers; peppers etc
• Tube rotation app controlled
• Easier robotic fruit picking
IR (Investment Return)
• In less than 3 years due to labor save only
• With the increase in fruit productivity IR in less than two years
The labor cost is about 1/3 of the production cost of trellised vegetables.
In nature, fruit vegetables plant, has no strength to grow upward. So, the plant is tied to vertical wires. This proccess is called Trellising.
The plant can reach a length of 10 meters and more, so after harvesting, the plant is lowered and the stem is leaned on the ground.
The labor of trellising, leaning & lowering is more than 50% of the labor consumption in greenhouses growing tomatoes, cucumbers, zucchini, pepper etc.
