Title: GROWING VEGETABLES WITHIN A CLOSED AGRICULTURAL ENVIRONMENT
Abstract:
A system including a controlled agriculture environment containing one or more growing rooms, each containing one or more growing units is described. Each growing room is managed by an HVAC system under the control of an environmental control unit. Each growing room may have a specific temperature and humidity optimized for the type of plant or plants being room. The growing room may have a positive air pressure when compared to areas connected to it to ensure that no insects or contaminants can enter the growing room. The growing room may provide water feed, compressed air, C02, and electricity to each of the growing units. The growing units are also connected wirelessly to an environmental control unit.
