SolaGrow efficiently and effectively solves several problems facing the agricultural sector:
WATER: Agriculture uses 70% of the worlds fresh water and it is running out fast. SolaGrow uses only 2% of conventional growing water and can also harvest rainwater.
FOOD SECURITY: Domestic production is less than 60% and falling SolaGrow allows local consistent growing of crops irrespective of original national origin.
FOOD MILES: Many crops travel thousand of miles but SolaGrow allows growing locally to the consumer.
GREEN HOUSE GAS: Agriculture produces more CO2 than all forms of transport combined. SolaGrow needs no heavy machinery or plant and the PV can provide clean energy.
POLLUTION: Pesticides, fertilizers and slurry are polluting water courses and oceans. SolaGrow use no pesticides or fertilizers and can clean slurry with algae systems.
HUNGER / MALNUTRITION: Due to lack of protein, iron and Vitamin A.
SolaGrow can produce ten tons per day of crops rich in all of these, and be sited local to need.
