Urban Farming

I'm a paragraph. Click here to add your own text and edit me. It's easy.

It supposes the supplying of food of local production in the big cities, mitigation of negative externalities of the current agricultural model and absorption of labor coming from the cities.

Urban Farming Advantages

The implementation of these new technologies are very varied, benefiting both the environment and the demand for agricultural food by cities:

• Production 365 days a year, thanks to the fact that it does not depend on seasonal factors that could affect production.

• Production "Just in time", thanks to the nature of our production model we can adjust the production to the demand of our customers, minimizing the loss.

• 1 square meter of horticultural crop in our high pressure aeroponics production module its equivalent to 6 square meters of horticultural cultivation in traditional agriculture, this means that, instead of having 4 annual harvest cycles, we can have from 12 to 15.

  • There are no failures in production due to weather phenomena, pests or forest fires.

  • There is no use of herbicides, pesticides and chemical fertilizers, much less of transgenic seeds.

  • It uses between 90% and 95% less water than traditional agriculture.

  • It allows the damage done by traditional agriculture to ecosystems to be repaired.

  • Dramatically reduces the carbon footprint of food by creating local and fresh production for city dwellers.

  • Create new employment opportunities.

  • Create sustainable environments within urban infrastructure.

  • It can be a key factor in the reduction of war conflicts in the future by the dispute of natural resources such as water, and land for agriculture.

  • Very low fixed costs, thanks to low electricity, water and inputs needed to produce under vertical aeroponic schemes, as well as the limited labor required for its operation.
