Boost nutrition and production, reduce impact

Put our feed solution to work for you – achieve your economic and environmental business goals

With the touch of a button, HydroGreen Automated Vertical Pastures™ produces high-energy fresh forage at commercial scale. HydroGreen creates production efficiencies for livestock businesses while helping to reduce environmental impact and enhance stewardship outcomes. In dairy cattle, including HydroGreen fresh forage in the daily ration reduced methane emissions by approximately 24%, and preliminary data shows a similar reduction in beef cattle.

FOod and feed localized in a responsible, sustainable and affordable way.

With our commercial scale, automated, indoor growing technologies and support services, we help our Farmer Partners to truly make an impact in the world. To save our resources and ourselves, food and feed must be localized, grown indoors hydroponically and use a minimum of resources in a responsible, sustainable, and affordable manner. Our Local Chain Ag- Tech solutions directly empower farmers, protect our natural resources, and contribute to a zero-hunger future.

From seed to superfeed in 6 days

1: Imbibition

The uptake of water is a critical initial step to support germination

Dynamic physical and structural changes lead to large alterations in total seed volume and moisture content

Total seed volume roughly doubles, and seed moisture content increases approximately five-fold

Rate of hydration influenced by temperature, humidity, seed structural properties, seed composition, and osmotic potential

Stage concludes with the initiation of seed metabolism

2: Metabolic Activation

Proper seed hydration leads to the initiation of seed metabolism and the release from dormancy

Metabolic activity signals the release of hydrolytic enzymes form cell layers surrounding the starch rich endosperm

Storage molecule hydrolysis results in simple, highly bioavailable, and easily transported molecules required for cellular respiration

Reduce molecules are transported to seed embryo for cellular respiration

Stage concludes with the emergence of the embryonic root (radicle)

3: Germination

Embryonic root (radicle) ruptures the seed coat followed shortly by the emergence of the coleoptile and lateral roots

Seed metabolism and storage molecule hydrolysis rapidly increases in positive feedback loop

Quickly increasing available energy supports increasing rates of biosynthesis reactions

Stage concludes when coleoptile reaches approximately 1.0” (25 mm)

4: Seedling Development

Seed metabolism and storage molecule hydrolytic continues to rapidly increase in positive feed back loop. Hydrolytic enzyme activity peaks during stage four

Increased molecule hydrolysis supports biosynthesis reactions throughout juvenile plant

Stem and root rapidly elongates approximately doubling length and dry weight during phase four

Emergence of true leaf signals increase the expression of photosynthetic pigments and overall efficiency of photosynthesis

Stage concludes with full leaf emergence and onset of efficiency photosynthesis

nutritional Benefits for Your Animals

Digestible Protein and Energy

High quality protein in the form of amino acids and simple peptides
High quality energy in the form of simple sugars and starches
High quality free fatty acids with higher levels of: 

  • Unsaturated fatty acids
  • Omega 3’s
  • CLA’s

All these nutrients are critical for health, growth, production & re-production

Highly Available Nutrients, Minerals, and Vitamins

Large increases in the bioavailability of nutrients during developmental process

  • More available
  • Less complex 
  • More abundant

Anioxidant concentration greatly increased during developmental process to support juvenile plant

Overall Physical Diet Quality

High moisture contributes to Ration conditioning 

  • Texture and Palatability

Higher moisture contributes to the mix stability

  • Less separation of the ingredients in the bunk 
  • Less sorting of ingredients by animals

Higher moisture contributes to less feed dust

  • Lower incidence of upper respiratory issues due to dust inhalation by animals

Devoid of Anti-Nutritional Factors

Reduced Haemagglutinins; Increased red blood cell oxygen carrying capacity

Reeduced Trypsin Inhibitor; Improved protein digestion

Reduced Tannins and Pentosans; Enhanced feed digestibility and palatability

Reeduced Phytic Acid; Improved macro and micro mineral availability
