The Science of Airflow

Dual Draft Integrated Airflow provides consistent under-canopy and over-canopy airflow, homogenizing the environment, opening the stomata and increasing transpiration.

Dual Draft is the Solution

The only integrated product of its kind on the market, Dual Draft is the next evolution in vertical farming improving yield, quality, consistency and plant health through airflow.

The Role of Stomata in Healthy Plant Growth

Stomata are pores located under the leaves and connect air space inside the leaf filled with water vapor and CO2 gas with the air around the leaf. The air surrounding the leaf is made up of several layers, including a microclimate layer that is primarily still air that has no movement.

When there isn’t appropriate under-canopy airflow, that still microclimate layer acts as insulation for the leaves, which can raise the temperature of the leaves, negatively impacting transpiration, reducing yield and creating an ideal environment for microbial and pest pressure.
