Picture Blog: Designing Innovative Growing Systems

Mike Dagostino, a Growers Supply customer, shared some great photos of his very unique growing space. He is part of a group of dedicated growers whose goal is to develop innovative growing systems and products. Mike and his coworkers turned to Growers Supply when they needed a variety of supplies for their organic tomato farm in Florida. Here are some photos of the project.

We have purchased many items from Growers Supply as we develop new technologies for use with our Organic EVE System at our organic tomato farm in Loxahatchee, Florida. The service and support we receive is unmatched. Most everything pictured here was purchased from Growers Supply. Our proprietary system, OrganicEVE (an enclosed vegetative ecosystem) is up and running, and our next step is to purchase a 12,000 square foot greenhouse.

Weed Guard Ground Cover
The Weed Guard Ground Cover in this photo suppresses weed growth while allowing air, nutrients and water to pass through, making it ideal flooring for greenhouses and high tunnels.

Greenhouse Vent Tube System

The vent tube system in this greenhouse is ideal for cost-effectively ventilating large areas.

Greenhouse Drip Irrigation System

These plants are being watered by a drip system made up of Flat 4-Way Manifolds, Barb x Barb Connectors, Angle Arrow Drippers and SuperFlex UV White™ Polyethylene Micro Tubing.

Tomato Clips and Rollerhooks

The tomato plants in this shot are supported by Tomato Clips and Hooks and attached to wire above to keep them growing straight and tall.
