The Aeroponics Industry

The are many industry players that are combining technology with traditional agricultural techniques to try and find a solution to the global food crisis and establish global food security.

Vertical Farming vs NeuponicsAI

Most hydroponic and all known aeroponic competitors utilize a method known as vertical farming in warehouse environments. Vertical farming is a method in which rows of plants and lights sit on top of each other, creating multiple levels of plant canopy. It is claimed to be a solution to agriculture's problems since it can be used to grow crops in urban areas without the need for fertile soil. Vertical Farmers fail to acknowledge that food has historically been exported from distant regions to keep a variety of produce available in grocery stores year-round The most pressing issues threatening food security are increasingly harsh environments and droughts caused by climate change, which are unsolved by the method.

Anticultural Technology

Agricultural technology is the use of technology in agriculture, horticulture, and aquaculture with the aim of improving yield, efficiency, and profitability.

Water Consumption

In recent years, severe droughts have caused significant water restrictions in key food producing regions such as California, Arizona, Texas and Northern Mexico. Aerofresh aims to solve that problem by producing crops using 45% less water than hydroponic cultivation and 95% less water than traditional field cultivation

Soil Depletion

Soil depletion and weather erosion of topsoil is making it increasingly difficult to find fertile agricultural land throughout the United States. The AerofreshAI system does not require fertile agricultural land and can also be implemented in areas where the climate would have previously made it impossible to grown year round using traditional agricultural methods

Pest Control

The FAO estimates that 20 to 40 percent of crops globally are lost to pests annually costing the industry around $70 billion in losses per year. Similarly, the FAO estimates that plant related diseases cost the industry $220 billion in losses per year

Grown Naturally, Pesticide Free

Our digital platform allows farmers to monitor their crops in real-time and make informed decisions based on data analysis. By providing farmers with the tools to optimize their crop growth, we can help increase efficiency and reduce waste.

What is Smart Farming?

AerofreshAI.s smart farming method is significantly more cost-effective and energy efficient than vertical farming in warehouses. The Aerofresh smart technology allows near autonomous farming. While fertile soil in agricultural regions is becoming increasingly scarce due to soil depletion, there is otherwise no lack of agricultural land In most areas there is no need for food producers to grow vertically in warehouses using stacks of artificial lighting that require huge amounts of electricity when the power of sunlight is readily available.

Our method uses controlled environment greenhouses that utilize Al Data Acquisition, Predictive Analytics, and the sun as their primary light source and one flat level of plants for optimal light saturation. The greenhouses also employ Al to automatically control temperature and humidity in their enclosed environments, they are also resistant to climate conditions similarly to industrial warehouses. AerofreshAI systems enable maximum water efficiency and much higher yields per acre of plant canopy than any other industry-known cultivation systems while minimizing water requirements.
