Aeroponics is a cultivation method in which plant roots are suspended in air, without entangling into a physical medium, and fed via a fine mist or fog system. NASA funded a major aeroponics research project for space colonization purposes in the 1990s and early 2000s. Significant advantages over other cultivation methods were realized such as minimized water and nutrient usage, increased oxygenation of roots, sterile operations, increased product quality, increased rate of plant growth, and increased yield.
Co-Founder and CTO, Dale Devore developed our proprietary technology over his 30-years as a cultivation consultant. Richard Stoner, the NASA scientist credited with developing aeroponics for the space program, has been known to refer to Dale as his only competitor. You will see some of Dale’s earliest work still used by some of our competitors — but these are his ideas from 20 years ago.
AeroBloom®️ patent-pending technology consists of:
• ground-breaking aeroponics system design
• multiple layers of safeguards that remove much of the risk of crop failure, and
• proprietary growing protocols.
Key advantages of the AeroBloom®️ System over other growing methods include:
• Significantly improved production (100%+ for many plant species)
• Substantially decreased water usage
• Enhanced plant characteristics and quality (potency, flavor, aroma, and appearance)
• Pest and disease control management without using expensive conventional pesticides
• Shortened maturation cycle (one additional harvest per year)
• Multiple safeguards in the AeroBloom®️ system makes crop failure highly unlikely.
AeroBloom®️ aeroponic farming systems are the most efficient cultivation systems available today. Utilizing a proprietary nutrient-to-root delivery system far different than all existing commercial aeroponics systems currently sold in the marketplace.
• Increased yields and flower quality levels are consistency produced when using AIS equipment and growing methods.
• Designed for multiple configurations that include movable vertically stacked farming beds that multiply the yield per square foot. A 20,000 sq. ft growing area can be transformed into 60,000 sq. ft simply by utilizing three vertical levels of growing.
• This farming method is not restrained by seasons but can be repeated throughout the year inside large structures or greenhouses with no impact from outside weather and changing climate conditions. Continuous yearlong farming without interruptions due to weather or system failure is the main focus behind AeroBloom aeroponic agriculture technology.
• Controlling the root zone environment is critical for plant health and yield/crop quality. AIS is on the front line with the development of this vital activity.
• Organic certification is possible using a specific protocol with the basic AeroBloom system. It is generally considered that aeroponically grown produce cannot be certified as organic.
