Agro-Tower Grow Pots
Grow 4 to 6 times more plants per square foot. The Stackable Planters form crop towers that allow for tremendous production, even in small areas, and use less water and fertilizer, says Lee Blevins, who developed the towers. They're made from a special UV-resistant polypropylene food-safe plastic. After six years of continuous use there is no visible sign of wear to existing units.
  Using a hydroponic system, you can grow crops using conventional fertilizers or grow organic crops almost anywhere, says Blevins. Each section is 20 in. in diameter, 8 in. in depth, and contains 6 planting ports, 4 in. wide and 10 in. apart. Each section will hold about 1/2 cubic ft. of growing medium. A tower stacked 6 units high will hold 36 plants and is 4 ft. high when assembled. The towers can be stacked to the height you desire. They're designed to save land, water, fertilizer, power, and labor. They're easy to harvest and result in fewer rodents and weed problems, with less damage to the fruit in rainy conditions. Six black units sell for $68. Six terra-cotta for $78. Six white units sell for $78. (Prices subject to change.) They make a great gift for family, friends, or business associates. There are 240 units per pallet. Extra discounts for volume orders. Soon other exciting products will be available on the company's website.
