The FeedGrow® Process

Although the “Farm in a box” concept is not totally unique, we are very proud of the fact that the FEEDGROW® system has been designed specifically for extreme South African weather.

So, how does the FEEDGROW® process work?

FIRSTLY, a predetermined quantity of barley seeds is spread out on special seed trays and then watered at predetermined intervals with an overhead sprinkler system.

  • The system holds enough seed trays to ensure that the farmer has a constant and known amount of feed available every day.
  • Production starts with feed-grade barley seeds that germinate within 24 hours of seeding.
  • The seeds grow in the same trays for 6 to 7 days until they are just ready to harvest as a grass mat with a height of up to 130mm.
  • The empty seed trays are then rinsed with clean water, sown again with a predetermined amount of seed and pushed in at the seeding end of the system.
