Cool Farming: Growing Plants in Africa without Soil

332 ratings | 45308 views
http://www.infoDev.org/climate - A Kenyan entrepreneur has adapted hydroponics, a technique that allows to grow plants without soil, to African climate. The technique that traditionally needs an energy-intensive climate control, now allows to grow plants in simple sheds without the use of electricity. Hydroponics Kenya is one of green enterprises supported by the World Bank / infoDev's Climate Technology Program, an initiative sponsored by the U.K.’s Department for International Development, Australia’s Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (Australian Aid), Denmark’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs (DANIDA), Norway’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and the Netherlands’ Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

My only problem with hydroponics is the reuses of water. If one plant becomes contaminated they all do

I hope things get better for African countries with systems like these. Most need everything they can get.

Feeding their crops to the pig is just a waste tbh. They should just eat the crops directly to save time, water, and have more food to themselves.

Many nations need more novel and efficient ways to produce foods, and they need new food species for variety, that are not owned by Monsanto or other corrupt corporations.

The wheel has been around a lot longer. If you don't like old innovations stop using them.

I believe this technology was introduced by arrowbio, an Israeli waste management and tech company. Looks pretty familiar because I market for them here in Nigeria.
