Shipping Container Vertical Farming | Grow Solar

What is Container Farming?

Container farming is a vertical farming system that uses modified shipping containers for growing food inside without the need for power, water, sunlight or nutrients. Essentially, the container protects a controlled environment that is ideal for growing crops, providing a solution for sustainable agriculture in small spaces.

Alta-CEA’s Grow Solar Shipping Container Farms are versatile and can be built in any location around the world, including cities or remote worksites. It solves the problems associated with traditional farming, such as water scarcity, soil quality issues, and decreasing land availability. It also incorporates solar power to solve off-grid locations. Our indoor farming system enables farmers and growers to produce crops year-round, regardless of the weather, and harvest continuously throughout the year.
