IRVINE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Terra Tech Corp. (OTCBB: TRTC) The nation’s first medical marijuana-friendly hydroponics manufacturing company, announced today that it has officially launched its line of second-generation digital environmental controllers for indoor and urban agriculture. Through its wholly owned subsidiary GrowOp Technology Ltd, Terra Tech designs and distributes a broad line of indoor cultivation equipment designed for the cultivation of medical cannabis.
“Managing a large scale indoor cultivation effort is a time consuming and tedious process, fraught with significant opportunities for error. Automation is a core focus for GrowOp and Terra Tech and our tools help significantly increase productivity and yields while reducing the margin for error,” said Derek Peterson, CEO and founder of Terra Tech.
GrowOp’s Lineup includes everything needed to manage large-scale indoor farms from its ‘Chrono’ timers to its crown jewel the ‘Atmos D1’. These devices are designed to streamline indoor cultivation by automating and monitoring most of the key components associated with indoor gardening. Simply plug into your computer via a USB cable and program your temperature, C02 and other settings according to your personal specifications. These systems are completely customizable to control everything from humidity levels, lighting sequences, and C02 levels with absolute precision utilizing patented infrared/NDIR technology. These controllers provide transparency into the full cycle of cultivation giving the farmer the ability to review the environmental data after harvest.
“As more cultivation moves indoors urban farmers need a new set of tools to regulate and manage these operations. The global population is growing exponentially forcing us to seek out and adopt alternative methods for food production. Indoor, vertical, and greenhouse cultivation are potential answers to many of our existing agricultural limitations, and the development of technologies like these are paramount in its success,” suggests Eddie Piatt Director and lead design engineer of Terra Tech.
These controllers combined with the high-tech indoor hydro and aeroponic systems that GrowOp designs are poised to become the picks and shovels of this new paradigm of cultivation technology.
“Farming is going both urban as well as vertical and tools like these are going to be the staples of this new city-centric approach to agriculture,” said Peterson.
