What's the Problem?
Rapid climate change and exponential population growth generate more pressure on a crop production system that is no longer sustainable. There are thousands of km between the producer and the consumer, which forces the use of long-distance means of transportation, making the product more expensive and generating emissions along the way. And if we take into account the intensive use of agrochemicals in the production process, all of this generates a massive negative impact on the environment. Moreover, about half of the production is lost, either due to external factors, such as frost or drought, and also at harvest time, transport, and even in the gondola waiting to be purchased.
How are they Solving it?
In response to all of these problems, more sustainable and resilient means of production started to appear, such as hydroponics. Using a combination of electrical and magnetic stimuli, we take advantage of the sensitivity of plants to create a platform that allows us to accelerate their growth, increase their resistance to pests and diseases, and control their chemical composition at the molecular level. We focus on hydroponic food crops and medicinal crops, such as cannabis and molecular farming plants. We will offer a system that combines two technologies: modular hardware and responsive software that determines the time and intensity of the stimuli according to the needs of the plant.
