Slide Evolving market conditions are making vertical farming operations more relevant in today’s food supply chain

Aeroponic
Vertical Farming
Anywhere

Sprout AI manufactures scalable AI controlled grow “habitats” that can be installed in any existing or new indoor space throughout the world. Sprout AI also plans on setting up vertical farms in conjunction with select partners.

Why Sprout AI? Standing Out from the Competition

Sprout AI has combined the optimum components in each vertical farming category to position it as a leader in the space

Aeroponic Grow Medium

Allows the root to develop faster for shorter cultivation cycles.
Larger yields from increased nutrient utilization.
Utilizes a fraction of the water required by hydroponic operations.
Reduced risk of water-born contamination.

Building Structure Agnostic

Little building retrofit required.
Habitats can be outfitted in virtually any indoor space that meets food grade requirements.
Sea cans/containers typically need a space to walk resulting in inefficient space utilization.

Artificial Intelligence (AI)

Machine learning to improve growing parameters over time.
Data gathering of crops grown all over the world.
Early detection of adverse conditions.
Consistent, repeatable crops independent of geographic climate.
Specialized knowledge not required by operator.

Self-Contained Habitats

Mitigates the risk of outside contaminates and cross-contamination.
Allow for multi-crop farms.
Staggered harvest.
No requirement to retrofit building HVAC and lighting.

Rolling
Racks

Customized rolling rack technology.
Reduces fixed aisle space, resulting in a significant increase to the cubic cultivation area.

The Advantages
of Vertical Farming

Vertical farming provides a solution to many factors affecting the current and future food supply chain.

Historically, power consumption has made indoor farming uneconomic, but recent technological developments such as LED lighting have improved the economic value proposition.

Local Availability

Achieve consistent, year-round local supply of indigenous and non-indigenous produce that is agnostic to seasons, climates, weather and geographies

Risk Mitigation

Mitigation against natural disasters such as hail and wildfires that can wipe out entire crops, droughts and infestations that can adversely impact yields, and supply chain impacts such as Covid-19

Meeting Organic Preferences

Consumer preferences are evolving to more natural, organic products(2). The controlled environment of vertical farming reduces the need for chemicals and pesticides

Feeding a Growing Population

Up to 100x more productive than traditional methods(3), providing a solution to feed a growing global population amid a decrease in arable land per capita(4)

Environmentally Friendly

Up to 95% water savings(1), significant reduction in fossil fuel required to plant, sow, fertilize and transport crops, and reduces land use and biodiversity disturbances

Consistent Quality

Controlled, repeatable growing conditions allow for consistent quality produce that can be rapidly delivered to local markets and reduces the number of perishables from long range shipping

Enhanced Food Safety

Tracking and recall of local produce serving a local market is more manageable than produce grown in international jurisdictions and shipped to a broad network of international markets
