HIGH-DENSITY HYDROPONICS: AGTECH INNOVATION
The Lettuce Lads story began with conversations surrounding a hobbyist’s hydroponics setup. Two of the 4 co-founders agreed that current ‘container farm’ business models were struggling to be profitable, so innovation was required in order to create a profitable business model.
A year and a half later, Lettuce Lads designed and built a proof of concept for a hydroponics system that increases growing density and lighting efficiency significantly.
operations + research and design
Lettuce Lads will be building an operational prototype of their design in the Bow Valley in Summer, 2019. While research and design for future versions and other technologies are ongoing, we are currently focused on Bow Valley operations.
