“Given the unprecedented rise of the hydroponics industry and the fact that more and more people are recognizing the benefits of locally grown food, this partnership makes sense on so many different levels,” said Bob Rimol, founder of Rimol Greenhouse Systems. “We understand that by partnering, we can offer our customers the best possible blueprint and game plan to grow healthier and safer food for themselves and their neighbors.”
RGS designs, manufactures and installs greenhouse structures and systems that control light, temperature (heating and cooling), CO2 and the overall environment. Even insect control is factored into the overall greenhouse design, which also takes into account the best crops to grow, budget and revenue expectations. American Hydroponics has been providing crop performance products and services for growers for the past 26 years.
“RGS shares our belief that the well-being of the environment is everyone’s responsibility and that water and land conservation are more important than ever before,” says Michael Christian, president of American Hydroponics. “Recognizing the fact that a smarter approach to farming has become a necessity to preserve farmland and other natural resources, the synergy between our two companies is natural and the relationship extremely beneficial to our customers.
Hydroponic plant cultivation is a method of achieving maximum production in minimal space, without soil; by recirculating minerals dissolved in water.
