Large Commercial Fodder Systems
FodderTech is proud to introduce its updated Commercial Sprouting System which achieves the highest fodder yields with the least amount of labor of any system on the market today. This modular fodder production system is designed to scale from 125 lbs. to 20,000+ lbs. of fresh sprouts daily. All Sprouting Systems include everything needed to grow the sprouts, you just have to supply the climate controlled room and access to water and electricity.
Commercial System Features:
Modular Design & Expandability: The Modular Design allows for system growth in 250 lb (113.4 kg) increments and is fully expandable to any desired tonnage. The core building block of the Commercial system is the wheeled 4 ft. wide x 14 ft. long aluminum rack which holds twenty (20) 13 foot long x 10 inch wide growing trays. Each rack is capable of growing 250 lbs (113.4 Kg) of premium fresh fodder every day. Additional racks can be easily added to the system to offer expansion which is limited solely by the size of your grow room. The 125 lb system is the exception and it is essentially a 250 lb system with 10 sprouting trays instead of 20.
Small Footprint: The new commercial systems use a footprint that is 50% smaller than older FodderTech models. Previous designs could grow 2,000 lbs of sprouts in 2,000 square feet. The new system will produce 2,000 lbs of sprouts daily in less than 1,000 square feet while providing enough space for you to properly seed, harvest and operate your system.
Water & Nutrient Recirculation: Because all of the FodderTech systems recirculate the water, we are able to introduce organic nutrients into the water reservoir which results in larger sprouts and a lower percentage of unsprouted seed and therefore ensures a higher yield than any other system on the market today. We are seeing 80% efficiency on our water usage and we don’t create mud puddles in the summer and ice in the winter around our grow rooms from wasted water.
Labor Minimizing Design:The new design allows for extremely efficient, and best in the industry seeding, harvesting and cleaning. Experienced growers are spending less than 1 hour of labor per ton of fresh sprouts harvested.
Automated Watering:Every FodderTech sprouting system includes a timer to ensure that you are watering when you need to water and for the right length of time. This timer is part of a full water recirculation system. The recirculation system is designed specifically for your daily production needs and includes a Tank (for return water and nutrients), Pump, Timer and appropriate Plumbing.
Mold-Free Guarantee: We, at FodderTech, are so confident that you can grow your sprouts with our system for 7-Days without mold that we are willing to offer you a 100% refund on your system. Of course there are some rules which you can learn more about by clicking here: Mold-Free Guarantee.
Lowest Operating Costs – Period: When you improve yields, save water and reduce labor, you Save Money!

The sprouting professionals
Mold Free Guarantee: No strong chemicals are added for mold control. A quality system with appropriate environmental controls is necessary to grow mold free. Greenhouses cannot maintain the proper conditions for growing mold free. The FodderTech system is the ONLY system that offers a 100% Mold Free Guarantee without the use of strong chemicals.
Thicker, Taller, Lusher: There is no substitute for quality. FodderTech sprouts are 10″ – 12″ tall in 8 days. The root mat develops between 2″ – 3″ thick. Other systems would grow sprouts to 4″ – 8″ tall sprouts with less than 1″ thick root mat. The root mat is saturated in sucrose, fructose, glucose, and energy. The taller sprouts and thicker root mat offers unique nutritional advantages that shorter sprouts cannot deliver.
Optimal Controls:Sprouts are sensitive to climate. When operating a FodderTech sprouting system the sprouts are never exposed to ambient temperature as the system must be installed in a climate controlled room/facility. Systems that expose the sprouts to ambient and air and sunlight during operation are inefficient, will likely stunt the plant growth, and require chemicals to control the mold.
No Sprays: Spraying plants from above increases humidity and mold potential during sprouting. Strong chemicals like chlorine being sprayed in the building will cause corrosion to aluminum and galvanized steel racks. FodderTech systems do not use sprays to irrigate the sprouts.
Wide Aisles: Access to the sprouts through the every growth stage is important for troubleshooting, seeding, harvesting, operation, maintenance and cleaning is critical. If there is no access and mold grows then it will spread. FodderTech systems offer wide aisles with access to days 1 – 7 of the sprouting process.
Recirculating Water System: The FodderTech designs use a recirculating water system. These designs allow operators to condition the water for optimal growing conditions. This allows growers to maximize the amount feed from each pound of seed.
Made in the USA: Sprouting systems for animal feed are available from around the globe. FodderTech is owned and operated from the United States. All fabrication for U.S. models is done in the U.S.
