Farm from a Box works to bridge the ‘access’ gap by providing appropriate technologies and training that can help build the resilience of communities, increase and stabilize their farm productivity while stimulating economic growth.
The unit can act as its own micro-grid in remote locations thanks to its own solar powered energy source. Drip irrigation saves water and stabilizes crops through drought conditions while also extending the growing season. Also, internal cold-storage helps keep crops fresher longer, reducing post-harvest loss by 80%. Finally, Wi-Fi connectivity improves information access and exchange, while an Internet of Things (IoT) system helps monitor production and maintenance needs.
