Oasis Biotech is a chemical free facility that uses hydroponics technology to grow plants without soil. It also uses high-end clean rooms with special filters and ultraviolet lights to control air and water, all features designed to keep the food safe and clean. Their fresh, pesticide free, non-GMO produce is grown on stacked trays inside their 215,000 sqft. facility, and because they can produce "sun light" longer their produce grows faster. They project that they can produce about 9,500 servings of mixed salad and fresh herbs per day for local restaurants and casinos. When they are fully built they will also produce carrots and soft fruits at the facility.
The vertical farm requires 90 percent less water than a traditional farm, which is something Nevada needs since our water levels are continually dropping. More local restaurants will now have access to fresher local produce, which also means more money kept in state. So not only are they reducing environmental impacts, they are also bringing us fresher safer food! You can check out the facility today from 2-6pm at their grand opening! Go see for yourself how they are changing the rules of agriculture. .
