I am a Soil less Agriculture Consultant of (Hydroponics). I am capable of growing most plants under controlled environments (Hi-tech greenhouse). I have extensive experiene in Europe and America for this exiciting methodology.
Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA) is the preffered methodology for hi-tech farming. Most vegetables such as Tomatoes, Capsicum, Cucumbers, Strawberries are grown with such methods. the advantages are:
1)- High yield. More than 5 to 10 times more (depends on the method and cultivar used2) No use of pesticide/Insecticide
3)- 1/10th of water usage
4)- Remote controlled for climate control & fertigation.
5)- No soil used. less pathogens and problems.
6)- Minimal waste of final products.
7)- Uniform products of size & shape.
8)- Longer shelf life.
9)- Non evasive procedures. Fertilizer is recirculated not thrown onto the ground (no runoffs). Which means impact on land is minimal.
Its time for India and Pakistan to get into high-tech agriculture to improve the productivity of land. I provide consultancy for HYDROPONICS & AQUAPONICS .
Minimum project requirements is atleast 40ftx140ft land. I provide the following services:
