Learn About High Pressure Aeroponics
A new breed of growers, gardeners, and scientists, are studying the field of aeroponics with renewed interest. The potential of High Pressure Aeroponics (HPA) to create larger crops in less time holds promise for the future of agriculture. HPA produces droplets in the 30-80 micron range. Roots are able to absorb droplets this size directly from the air. This means a root mass is able to achieve a higher level of efficiency. It is possible to reduce nutrient use by 90% when using HPA. The other primary benefit is a lower rate of water use. These benefits are just some of the reasons urban farms and rooftop gardens are beginning to use aeroponic technologies.

Multiponics offers consulting, planning, equipment, and expertise to help you design and build your operation.
Brief history of aeroponics
Intensive studies into HPA were completed for NASA under the guidance of inventor Richard Stoner who commercialized aeroponic technology in 1983. Aeroponics has been implemented as an alternative to water intensive hydroponic systems worldwide. With the climate changing before our eyes these water saving technologies are fast becoming a viable alternative to conventional agriculture.
