How to start hydroponics setup?

How to build a setup similarly like that of Freight Farms and/or Cropbox? I am getting a shipping container for $2000 and its of the same size that Freight Farm uses. How can I get the rest of the components used in a shipping container farm and from where? Need help in commercially building it and how to increase my sales?

On that...having the container box is the easy part. Everything you saw on the internet on both guys has to be build from scratch. There is a good piece of software to manage all in and outs and you need good people for that

Any more details that you can shed as to what components are used in those containers and where to source them from? Plus any manuals as to how to assemble them?

Hi Tushar,

If you're looking for professional help establishing a vertical farm/urban farm, I work for a consulting group called Blue Planet Consulting.

I recommend getting in touch with Local Roots Farms out of LA. (localrootsfarms.com).
They're doing amazing things with shipping containers and AgTech.

Local Roots is great! They're hiring! Check out their careers page -http://www.localrootsfarms.com/careers/

And back to the Freight Farms question - They use Bright Agrotech's ZipGrow Towers inside their containers. Very cool stuff!https://brightagrotech.com/

Hope this helps!
