We recently harvested about 90lbs of basil from the Bright Agrotech ZipFarm – a vertical plane indoor farming system enabling local farmers worldwide. Here’s a look behind the scenes! (http://zipfarm.co/) Our goal? To track the amount of time for processing and packaging the herb. This information will help our farmers plan labor costs and number of employees for their farm as well as provide our product development team with data for some upcoming projects. The variety we harvested was Genovese Basil, a typical heirloom favored by growers across the world. We brought the packaged basil to our local soup kitchen, a few Laramie restaurants, and the natural grocer. The next round of basil will test a hybrid of Genovese which is resistant to fusarium wilt and germinates faster (stay tuned for the update).

    Is the calculator mentioned in the video available somewhere? I am not into a profitable aquaponics, but I would like to have an overview of this "business" perspective out of curiosity.

    Just wondering why you cut the plants off in the tower and hand carry the bunches to the weighing area? Would it make more sense to take down the whole tower, carry that to the weighing area, then do all your trimming/harvesting/cleaning/replanting at one shot?

    will harvesting by separating the plant with the roots reduce the shelf life?

    I don't think is the best way to weight your Basil, the % Error could be high. a hanger scale could be better or a scale which can contain all the superficial area. Keep going guys

    Great vids … Are you washing and drying your basil prior to placing in containers and off to market ?

    the basil looks like it has a calcium deficiency or a ph imbalance.

    when you do the black oil sunflowers, also try an additional tray of black oil sunflower seed that's sold as birdseed and is the same thing for a much cheaper price per pound 😉

    Great vid and keen to hear some of the stats on production volumes, harvesting times, etc. How many towers (are they 7 footers?) to generate 90lbs of basil?

  • Jason Marsh 1 week ago

    do you re-plant the basil or does it grow back out from being cut that short?
