HortiPODLeafTM

Self-Contained AG Environment System

HortiPODLeaf

A Fully Housed AG Environmental System Specifically Pre-Configured for Controlled Rapid-Growth Horticultural Applications (Gourmet & Heirloom Vegetables, Delicate Floral, Herbs and/or Canabis)

The HortiPOD equipment line was developed around specific design parameters and criteria allowing it to be used in a wide variety of agricultural applications.

The HortiPOD unit is delivered as a completely “Ready to Run – Place & Plant” solution. It comes replete with temperature & humidity equipment & controls designed and engineered with grow lighting and a processor controlled/monitor-capable nutrient delivery system in order to provide a uniform and consistent crop-specific growth environment.

It will high-yield produce hi-grade crops in its “near pharma-grade” environment. This means ALL vegetables, flowers, herbs and spices can be grown/produced year-round WITHOUT insect infestation (ZERO pesticides are needed due to HortiPOD being a “hermetic environment”.) Pathogens, spores, dust and all errant air-borne particulate are filtered out…so the internal environment is cleaner, more pure than anything currently used to grow consumable produce, food or ambient-sensitive florals.

HortiPOD is delivered as a one piece unit/housing and is capable of being on-line, up & running within 4 – 8 hours. High voltage power and water supply point-of-connections are easily hooked-up from site-available sources.

Both our HortiPOD™ and HygroPOD™ equipment lines were developed around specific design parameters and criteria, but inherently have operating flexibilities which allow them to be used in a wide variety of agricultural applications. Sectors in addition to AG are: Research, Private & Government, Military, Commercial, Industrial etc.

HortiPODis a self-contained agricultural environment system pre-configured specifically for controlled rapid-growth commercial cannabis applications. HortiPOD™ is delivered as a complete “Ready to Run – Place & Plant” solution. It comes replete with temperature & humidity equipment with controls designed and engineered for AG-Specific Cannabis Application (AGSCA), grow lighting, processor controlled and monitor-capable nutrient delivery system and provides a uniform and consistent growth environment for the cannabis crop.

All units come to the site as one or two pieces and are capable of being on-line, up & running within 4 – 8 hours. High voltage power and water supply point-of-connections are easily hooked-up from site-available sources.

HortiPOD™ is a “Fully Integrated Equipment Environmental System (EES), it can utilize natural gas, steam heat, mechanical heat or resistance heat in its internal cycle depending on on-site utility provisions.

It is pre-tested, pre-commissioned and also includes safety sensors for CO2 threshold-level cutoff when occupied. This system provides a “pharma-grade environment” that will consistently produce high-yield, high-grade crops. In addition to cannabis applications, it can also be used to grow anything that needs high quality pharma-grade conditions or even just year-round growth otherwise unattainable due to certain climatic conditions. Flowers, fruits, vegetables etc are all easily grown/produced with a few simple programming changes to its micro-processor which will tailor the specific conditions required for the crop being produced.

Introduction

National (US) as well as Global recognition of cannabis derived medicinal extract and inhalant benefits has not only become widespread, but is universally accepted as scientific fact. Now predominantly legal in many state venues, cannabis production, its derivatives and distribution through legitimate channels, is under consideration by most to become legal if it isn’t already. More so, these derivatives… when produced and cultivated under exacting conditions… have become high-demand. That is, when high quality, controlled production is utilized, high yields and top pharma-grade results are netted. That equates to greater profits all around to the producer as his/her product of higher quality will demand a higher price. And as the demand by both populace and the medical community seeking non-addictive, non-biologically destructive alternatives to synthetic drugs grows, the market will require greater amounts of and better quality product.

The challenge facing all producers is the lack of adequate production facility availability, high infrastructure costs and the need for bona-fide, precise engineered provision of those environments as repeatable, reliable and consistent means for production.

Concept

HortiPODis a self-contained, engineered system developed by Apollo Power Solutions, Inc. that is delivered as a complete “Ready to Run – Place & Plant” solution. It comes replete with temperature & humidity equipment with controls designed and engineered for AG-Specific Cannabis Application (AGSCA), grow lighting, processor controlled and monitor-capable nutrient delivery system and provides a uniform and consistent growth environment for the cannabis crop.

All HortiPOD units come to the site as one or two pieces and are capable of being on-line, up & running within 4 – 8 hours. High voltage power and water supply point-of-connections are easily hooked-up from site-available sources.

HortiPOD can utilize natural gas, steam heat, mechanical heat or resistance heat in its internal cycle depending on on-site utility provisions.

Process

Fully insulated throughout, HortiPOD is impervious to all/any external environmental impact so long as power and water are consistently delivered to it. Inclement weather has no effect on HortiPOD function capability.

HortiPOD is available in two (2) sizes:

  • 950cu.ft.(20ft. Overall Length)
  • 1850cu.ft. (40ft. Overall Length)

It can be placed on a secure plot of land, in the parking lot of the served facility/restaurant, adjacent to the served facility/restaurant… and with power and water hooked-up, can be producing crop faster and more, consistently than by any other existing means.

Corrosion resistant steel shelving/racks for potted or tray crop growth are standard and may be customer-selected for size, depth and number.

The environmental support equipment is internally located in an end compartment as us the nutrient feed equipment.

Completely pre-fabricated with engineered directional grow-lighting, temperature and air quality controls, each HortiPOD is needs only to be crop-loaded…seed, seedlings, young mid-growth plants are all supported via its microprocessor pre-configured algorithms or may be altered/customized as required.

The result is uniform product/crop + shortened time-to-harvest.

Take the “unknown” out of your food production or restaurant business model regarding produce quality and delivery and let HortiPOD create greater profits for your bottom line.

Easier. Faster. More Uniform. More Reliable. More Profitable.

HortiPOD™ is a Fully Integrated Equipment Environmental System (EES). Robust design and industrial equipment.
