Shipping containers can be used in a variety of ways, including hydroponic farming. A number of companies are growing vegetables, herbs and other greens in a modified shipping container. They are outfitted with hydroponic systems that produce tremendous results while protecting the environment. 

Hydroponics is a common method of growing that uses nutrient-rich water instead of soil. The roots of the plants are exposed to flowing water and simultaneously exposed to sun simulating light. This process typically uses 90% less water than traditional farming, reducing environmental impact. Indoor hydroponic farming also avoids limitations normally created by nature like extreme weather, pests and limited growing seasons.

cargo container farm can be placed almost anywhere, which closes the gap between the produce and consumer. Eliminating long transportation times, these units provide affordable fresh food to many places lacking a local farming industry. 40ft shipping containers are ideal to maximize production space.
