October, 2013–Dyersville, IA–On November 4th, 2013 from 10 AM to 3 PM, FarmTek’s Controlled Environment Agriculture display trailer showcasing a fodder feed system will be making a stop at Northeastern Junior College. This event will feature interactive instruction and demonstrations featuring the latest techniques in hydroponic growing. Discover the benefits of controlled environment agriculture and see these systems actively growing up close and personal. Speak to FarmTek’s knowledgeable hydroponic specialists, ask questions and learn how a hydroponic system can benefit any farm or operation.
FarmTek has developed this controlled environment on wheels to showcase their FodderPro Feed Systems, hydroponic growing systems and the controlled environment solutions they offer.
Controlled environment agriculture is becoming increasingly popular as farmers, businesses and home owners are looking for ways to get on board with the local food movement. Controlled environment agriculture is an eco-friendly, sustainable and efficient means of growing vegetables, fruit, livestock feed and more at a lower cost than traditional agriculture. It gives control to the grower and allows them to produce healthy, fresh food year round.
“Growing in the field, dealing with the unpredictable elements that Mother Nature can throw at you, knowing that even something small ruin the entire growing season, is not a comfortable feeling,” said Jon Kozlowski, lead grower at FarmTek’s Technology Center East. “Removing the unpredictable aspects of growing and controlling the environment allows you to produce better, higher quality yields and make more money without the constraints of a growing season.”
The trailer will be in the parking lot of the college’s North Campus, just off Pioneer Road, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Monday. The exhibit is open to everyone and it is totally free.
