The GyroPlant GyroCup helps replace growing media/substrates used in indoor farming. It's a simple, affordable and reusable product - developing seeds from germination to harvest. We have been working to bring the circular economy approach to indoor farming.
Currently, substrates present a major barrier for sustainability in indoor farming.
Our GyroCup reduces the need for expensive growing substrate, reduces air & sea miles from substrate freight. GyroCup replaces plastic net pots and is an overall environmentally friendly way of growing plants indoors.
Through rigorous designing and testing at our R&D testing facility, our Patent Pending GyroCup can be tailored to your vertical farming technology and needs.

LET'S PREVENT WASTE
Vertical farming (growing food without soil) is producing an ever increasing amount of our supermarket foods.
Our team have been researching and testing methods of hydroponic/aeroponic growing systems that are more sustainable and easier for growers.
Growing media is often a major problem for vertical farms. It's expensive, non-reusable and creates problems with mould and excess algae growth. Often, growing media such as sponge or rock wool uses, which is thrown away at harvest, heading to landfill. The unpredictable supply chains for these consumables endangers farm productivity. Only with reusable growing technologies is vertical farming sustainable.
We are on a mission to help growers around the world reduce their environmental impact.
