Harvesting the benefit of disruptive technology to allow farmers around the world to grow nutrient rich crops independent of climate or geography.
Climate Change, resource scarcity and population growth mean that by 2030 it is estimated we will need 35% more food, 40% more water and 50% more energy.
Airponix’s technology helps to significantly alleviate these challenges with its smart soil-less agricultural system. It can grow staple crops almost anywhere in the world with minimum grower risk and environmental impact.
Plant roots and foliage are fed by a nutrient-rich fog – a superior mechanism to existing hydroponics and aeroponics systems that utilise a mist or spray.
Successful demonstration trials growing potatoes carried out by one of UK’s leading growers and distributers, prove the concept both technically and commercially.
The global market opportunity of improving agricultural productivity is £250 billion. We believe the Airponix system represents a step change in accessing this market.
As the overall winner, we won “The Rushlight Award”. We also picked up the “Rushlight Energy Reduction Award”.
