Welcome to the TERRASPHERE BLOG!

9 Jul

As one of the leaders in vertical farming technology, TerraSphere Systems LLC , provides an innovative and sustainable solution to the hunger crisis facing the world’s growing  population. We believe that TerraSphere has the power to improve global health conditions by making fresh, pesticide-free produce accessible to urban and remote  communities worldwide, while dramatically lessening agriculture’s impact on global climate change. With yields up to 10 times greater than greenhouses, vertical farming is emerging as one of the most exciting initiatives in sustainable agriculture. In comparison to both traditional field crops and greenhouses, TerraSphere technology achieves dramatic reductions in land, water, and energy usage. All of our produce is grown in close proximity to the consumer, limiting transportation costs and reducing fuel emissions.

Our facilities are currently producing an abundant supply of fresh, pesticide-free produce in fully controlled COMPACT WAREHOUSE FACILITIES.

  • We are able to grow fresh produce all over the world – everywhere from remote locations to crowded urban centers.
  • Growing food anywhere means a greater safe supply of nutritious food, helping us to meet the demands of our world’s growing population.
  • We fully control the environment for growth – we do not use pesticides, herbicides, or fungicides. This unique process eliminates the use of synthetic chemicals, thus reducing costs.
  • We produce fresh, delicious food that has a longer shelf life than field-grown crops.

    What is the source of the lights in terrasphere, electricity? and how is the leftovers after harvest recycled?? and how many employees are needed to operate terrashperes? and are they skilled or unskilled?? are the facilities going to coordinate with plasma arc gasification generators for waste disposal, and are you also going to marry the farming to aquaponics (i.e. talapia farming) as I have heard about being produced locally…(in PA)
    Also, in your video you walked around without any special clothing…(i.e. seeders wore gloves)…and how can you be sure you aren’t tracking in unwanted guests (pests) on shoes etc…?? I am very excited about vertical farming, and might consider going into some aspect of it as a career…not sure how or where to start training…& would like practical advise on this…thanks…my background is in education, rather than science…
