Zone Heating

A heating system that provides localized and zoned heat distribution in indoor farming, optimizing energy use and maintaining consistent temperature levels in different growing areas.

Zero-Waste Farming

An approach that aims to minimize waste generation and maximize resource efficiency, utilizing organic waste for composting, recycling water, and implementing circular economy principles in indoor farming.

Yucca Extract

A natural plant extract derived from yucca plants, often used in indoor farming as a wetting agent, surfactant, or natural growth enhancer.

Xylem and Phloem

Vascular tissues in plants responsible for the transport of water, nutrients, and sugars. Xylem carries water and minerals from roots to shoots, while phloem transports sugars and other organic compounds throughout the plant.

Wicking System

A passive irrigation system in which a wick or capillary material, such as fabric or string, transfers water from a reservoir to the root zone of plants, providing consistent moisture.

Vertical Aquaponics

A vertical farming system that combines aquaponics with vertical growing structures, utilizing fish waste to provide nutrients for plants grown in stacked or layered systems.

Vapor Pressure Deficit (VPD)

A measure of the difference between the amount of moisture in the air and the maximum amount of moisture the air can hold at a specific temperature. VPD affects transpiration and water uptake by plants.

Urban Farming

The practice of growing food or plants in urban areas, often using indoor farming techniques, to address issues of food security, resource constraints, and community well-being.

Tissue Culture Cloning

A propagation method that involves culturing plant tissue in a sterile laboratory environment, resulting in the production of multiple identical plantlets from a single source.

Sustainable Packaging

The use of eco-friendly and recyclable materials for packaging agricultural products, reducing waste and environmental impact in the indoor farming supply chain.
