• 1.Where Can a Container Farm Be Used?

    A container farm can be used in scenarios where the climate is harsh for agricultural production, such as deserts, highlands and islands.

  • 2.What Crops Can Be Grown on a Radix?

    Leafy greens, herbs, micro greens, fruiting crops, edible flowers, and medicinal plants can be grown on a Radix but the light-to-bed distance needs to be customized per the plants' needs. To date Sananbio has experimented internally with over 300 different crop varieties.

  • 3.How Many Kilograms of Vegetables Can Be Harvested on a 6-layer Radix?

    A 6-layer Radix can produce 600 kilograms of lettuce a year.

  • 4.How Long is Radix's Service Life?

    Radix is made from food-grade PP, which is moisture-proof, corrosion-proof and durable. Thus, Radix can serve as long as 10 years.

  • 5.How Many Layers Can a Radix Be Stacked?

    The number of layers are subject to your personal requirements and grow space.

  • 6.Why LED?

    LED consumes less energy compared with incandescent lights and HPS, contains no heavy metals, responds quickly and operates under quick switches. LED is also a cold light source that generates less heat and can serve a longer time.

  • 7.What is Led?

    LED refers to Light Emitting Diode, which is made from chemical compounds such as Ga, As, P and N.

  • 8.Why Light Recipes Matter?

    A light recipe that caters to a plant's needs can enhance photosynthesis, increase yields and improve produce quality.

  • 9.Is Efficacy the Higher, the Better?

    Theoretically, a high efficacy indicates a less energy consumption, but it also means an increased manufacturing cost. It's advised to consider grow space, light intensity and ROI before purchasing a grow light.

  • 10.What is the Difference Between Passive Cooling and Active Cooling?

    Passive cooling refers to the concept that LED uses its built-in structure to dissipate the heat. Active cooling means LED uses a heat sink to dissipate the heat as it accelerates the air flow around it so as to spread out the heat, but a heat sink also requires extra power supply.

  • 11.Is Full Spectrum Better for Crops?

    Full spectrum is close to the sunlight, which is suitable for all crops in a broad sense. But plants have varied needs for spectrum at different life stages, a designed light recipe can better increase the yield and improve the produce quality.

  • 12.What are PAR, PPF, PPFD and CRI?

    PAR, short for Photosynthetic Active Radiation, refers to the spectrum between 400-700nm that plants use for photosynthesis. PPF, a.k.a. Photosynthetic Photon Flux, is the total micromoles of photons (400-700nm) an artificial light generates per second. PPFD, short for Photosynthetic Photon Flux Density, refers to the total amount of photons (400-700nm) an artificial light generates that hit an area every second. CRI, or Color Rendering Index, is the ability of a light source that reveal the colors of various objects faithfully in comparison with an ideal or natural light source.

  • 13.How does SANANBIO support its customers?

    SANANBIO has a dedicated support team called Client Services. They’re with you from the moment you purchase a farm and will help guide you through training, delivery, installation, launch, first harvest and beyond!

  • 14.Do you sell / ship to my country?
