Read this article: https://university.upstartfarmers.com/blog/commercial-hydroponics-should-i-build-a-diy-system We first got our feet wet with home-built, DIY systems. Most of these systems were ugly but productive. Unfortunately, the benefits of DIY hydroponics started running out once we started building 300+ Tower systems. At this scale, we had to spend weekends fixing leaks, repairing tanks, and troubleshooting. When we switched to pre-fabricated or “turnkey” systems, we got to skip all that and get straight to production. Each farmer has unique needs and resources. The wise farmer knows those strengths and weaknesses and chooses a path that will play them to the best profit! ***Turnkey systems are best for farms that:*** Are heavily used and require efficiency Require simple, efficient operation through sophisticated design Have little margin for error (because of commercial scale) Need to start producing right away ***DIY systems are best for farms that:*** Are operating on a small hobby or experimental scale Need to train, learn, and get to know markets with low stakes Have plenty of labor and time for unexpected repairs —————– Timestamps/What’s Covered: 00:16 DIY is good for farmers just starting up 01:23 DIY isn’t for commercial scale growing 02:42 High cap-ex & low op-ex vs. low cap-ex & high op-ex 03:47 Why we made the switch from DIY to turnkey systems 05:16 Considering your production timeline —————– Connect with Bright Agrotech: Website: https://brightagrotech.com/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/BrightAgrotech/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/BrightAgrotech Instagram: https://instagram.com/zipgrow —————– Music by: Scott Gratton http://freemusicarchive.org/music/Sco… Related PostsEasy Vertical Hydroponics Tower Garden – Even Beginners Can Grow FoodHow to start growing hydroponics from seeds with rockwool cubesFeeling Really Good About My DIY Vertical Hydroponic TowerVertiCrop Vertical Farming.
