The Grow Process
The process of growing with a SuperGrow Container™ is a simple one, and requires the employment of just one entry-level grow operator, working part-time for 15-25 hours a week per container, depending on container size.
The process begins by selecting seeds and planting a separate harvest each week. This ensures a continual flow of produce, with harvests each week throughout the year.
Depending on the variety of produce grown, production translates to anywhere from 300 to 750 pounds of produce per week for a single container, depending on container size. That’s 1,200 to 3,000 pounds every 28 days!
Quantity-wise, this equates to about 3,500 plants in a 20-foot container, 7,500 in a 40-foot, and 10,000 plants in a 53-foot container per month. Again, variety of plant is a factor. For example, where 7,500 romaine lettuce heads may be expected in our 40-foot container, you can also expect about 9,500 basil plants in the same space.
The overall field equivalent is about 2-4 acres in a year’s harvest, per container. Remember, multiple containers may be utilized as space allows and stacked up to two units high.
