Frequently Asked Questions
What is the concept of an ATF Home Grower?
ATF Home Grower is a fully automated indoor appliance for cannabis and other vegetable cultivation at home. Does neither require any specific knowledge nor professional skills in crops growing. Based on ATF team substantial experience in industrial hydroponics and LED grow lighting, all technologies are safe, efficient and sustainable providing customers with rich organic product yield shortly. All agricultural cycles related to the growth and harvest of a crop are running automatically and may be easily monitored via Smartphone.
What is this technology about?
Our approach formed on a combination of hydroponics with LED lighting to secure the optimal way for plant growing. All plants get nutrient supplements mixed with water along with air. The hydroponics method stimulates plants to grow faster as compared to the traditional agricultural approach. A balanced nutrient solution contains such macro elements as nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P), calcium (Ca), sulfur (S) e.t.c. All additives used in hydroponics ideally feed plants, unlike natural soil, which is not capable of producing a large amount of nutrients ideal for plant growth.
The scripted system provides the required quantity of supplements to plant roots.
Who are the potential buyers of ATF?
The target audience consists of farmers from cities and towns, who sell and exchange seeds. At the moment our team works on the development of the next stage — an industrial trade.

The report includes the US and Canada for the first time, because it is moving towards the introduction of marijuana for adult use. Investors are mainly interested in investing in new technologies related to the cannabis industry, such as household appliances and new fast-growing technologies supported by applications.
Are there any competitive advantages of your product?
The current moment both US and Canada markets are relatively young and not saturated, despite a significant rise of cannabis consumers. ATF Home Grower is a brand-new home appliance differentiates from the few existing, not market ready labels by the following features:
- Automated short growing cycle of plants in light of an optimal balance of water and fertilizers in collaboration with defined efficient LED lights.
- A scheme of two vegetation cells installed inside the appliance presenting an option to get the yield of two large plants in sequence. Thus, there is no need for the customer to have a long waiting period as suggested by our competitors. Two vegetative cells may spontaneously provide customers with fresh organic cannabis harvest every week.
- ATF farm is the only one manufacturer who focuses the complete automation of the vegetative processes occurring inside the appliance. It means that there is no necessity to conduct numerous checkups of pH level, carbon filters rotation, TDS calibration, nutrient cartridges replacement. The only activities you have to commit to are to plant the seeds and harvest your crops. You should also clean it twice a year and when nutrients run low add them (every 2-3 months).

- An elegant design makes ATF home a new distinguishable part, considerably individualizing your residential interior and attracting attention of guests.
- ATF farms are covered by a 2-year manufacturer warranty.

Why don't you find an investor and earn billions with such a perspective technology?
We selected ICO as the most effective crowdfunding instrument to raise funds simultaneously following a win-win strategy which is advantageous either for investors or the enterprise.
The ICO helps to launch construction. Our project is actually a venture for a potential investor. Typical investors demand a majority stake in the Company (51%-80%). Therefore, in fact we sell the technology and the investor becomes its beneficial owner. That is why we have decided to turn to the crowd investments with the blockchain, this will allow us maintaining the ownership title and sharing only a part of the profit with the investors. The amount to be raised is not large, but sufficient to launch the manufacturing process.
