ORLANDO, Fla., Jan. 26, 2017 (PRNewswire) — OrganicaWorld, LLC, a Florida-based company located in Lake County, is doubling in size and expanding to build two more greenhouses, each spanning 350,000 square feet. As organic food sales continue to soar in the United States with a 72 percent increase in sales from 2008, OrganicaWorld is equipped to help fill the industry demand for fresh organic produce by using cutting edge organic growing technology.
Each OrganicaWorld custom engineered greenhouse showcases the latest innovations in growing. With millions of dollars spent in research and development, OrganicaWorld is staged to grow over 30 of the most highly consumed and in demand fresh vegetables, as well as rare medicinal plants and innovative hybrid varieties.
All of the greenhouses are equipped to grow every single Non-GMO seed to organic standards without the use of pesticides or harsh chemicals. Using proprietary hydroponic techniques, every plant is grown in a controlled environment with the exact amount of light and high quality nutrients it needs to grow.
OrganicaWorld is able to grow in production quantities that surpass traditional farming by 3,000 percent. For example, in one 8-acre greenhouse, OrganicaWorld's capacity to grow 80,000 to 160,000 heads of fresh organic lettuce every seven days is equivalent to growing at least 600 acres of lettuce in a traditional farm field. The crops are also not subject to the traditional outside changing climate and weather patterns.
Water is not a concern for OrganicaWorld. With the knowledge of the abrupt drought conditions hitting the US in recent years, OrganicaWorld built two million gallon cisterns to complement the first two greenhouse structures. The custom engineered rooftops of the greenhouses used to collect the rainwater along with the gutter and extensive underground pipe system is the first of its kind. Its success has led to a process that may be the key to saving and preserving the Florida Aquifer. These cisterns, engineered on such a large scale, can change the future of farming.
OrganicaWorld plans to expand their operation to build over 1,200 acres of custom engineered greenhouse facilities over the next five years. With three out of four grocery stores in the USA now carrying organic products, the dilemma for OrganicaWorld is not strategizing which big box store they will sell to, but how quickly and efficiently they can continue to erect the state-of-the-art custom greenhouse facilities. High tech greenhouse growing has now become a lucrative real estate commodity and the experts are analyzing the cost per square foot versus total crop output.
