Skyland USA has Added Another Product to the Growing Portfolio of rooflite® Certified Green Roof Media Products: rooflite® intensive ag
As the trend towards urban agriculture has emerged over the last several years, the need for an optimized soil media for rooftop farming becomes a critical component for these systems. With the release of rooflite® intensive ag, this need has been filled.
With three years of in-depth laboratory and field research, in addition to input from various rooftop farming pioneers such as Ben Flanner of the Brooklyn Grange Farm, the rooflite technical team has developed a product which complies with all the technical requirements of green roof media while at the same time taking into consideration the unique demands and requirements of farming.
“As an industry leader in the green roof media field, our goal has and will continue to be the development of products which meet or exceed the demands and expectations of our clients,” stated Joe DiNorscia, Skyland’s president.
rooflite intensive ag contains a perfect balance of micro and macro nutrients, as well as the critical water-holding capacities that are a necessity for the production of fresh and healthy fruits, vegetables and herbs in an urban setting.
rooflite intensive ag will soon be available at all of the 17 rooflite authorized blender network locations within the continental USA as well as Canada.
rooflite® certified green roof media products have been installed in over 700 projects and 5 Million square feet of thriving green roofs across the North America. With its strategically located blending facilities, nearly all of your green roof projects can be serviced with LEED qualifying credits.
