CannabisNewsBreaks – Advanced Container Technologies Inc. (ACTX) Offers Year-Round Farming Option, Higher-Nutrient Crops

Advanced Container Technologies (OTC: ACTX), the exclusive U.S. distributor of self-contained, automated, indoor “micro-farms” called GrowPods, provides a new income opportunity for farmers. The company’s GrowPods, or unique controlled environment farms, offer the ideal environment for farmers to grow crops all year long; as an added advantage, the crops are high nutrient, clean and sustainable. According to the announcement, recent reports have highlighted the challenges that farmers face, including increasing debt, extreme weather conditions, consolidation, degrading and eroding soils, and increased pesticide and chemical use that impact the nutrient value of harvests. One study noted that farmers are among the highest suicide rate profession in the country. ACTX’s GrowPods address this crisis. The hydroponic controlled environment farms can grow an estimated acre of food using about one-third of the water that traditional farming requires. One article reported that controlled environment farms are “100 times more productive than traditional agriculture,” while another noted that controlled environment agriculture is reshaping farming by using advanced horticultural and engineering techniques to optimize crop production, quality and efficiency “Our food system is in peril, and we can no longer keep going on as if everything is fine,” said ACTX CEO Doug Heldoorn in the press release. “It’s time for farmers to look to new ways of growing crops that don’t depend on soil, and don’t require chemicals or pesticides. . . . Our nation’s farmers need new tools and techniques to survive. GrowPods offer a pathway forward to a more sustainable future.”
