Seneca College, a Toronto-based institution committed to innovation and sustainability, has formed a groundbreaking collaboration with us. The partnership is set to usher in a new era of agricultural advancements, specifically targeting the improvement of crop yields in less-than-ideal growing conditions.
The container farm is a two story unit with our hydroponic technology in the container and a greenhouse on the second floor where seedlings can be germinated. The second floor will also be used as a designated research and development hub for various plants where students can study renewable energy technologies.
By combining Seneca College's expertise in applied research and our cutting-edge vertical farming systems, this collaboration seeks to tackle the challenges associated with adverse environmental factors, such as limited space and inadequate sunlight. Through innovative approaches and state-of-the-art technology, this partnership aims to optimize the productivity and sustainability of crop cultivation, contributing to a more secure and efficient food supply chain.
The joint effort will leverage Seneca College's vast resources, including its multidisciplinary research facilities and accomplished faculty, to conduct comprehensive studies on crop growth in non-optimal conditions. These studies will help identify the key factors that influence plant development and determine the most effective techniques for enhancing yields.
Through this collaboration with Seneca College, we aspire to advance sustainable agriculture practices and empower local communities to become more self-sufficient in food production. By optimizing crop yields in non-ideal growth conditions, the partnership aims to create a positive impact on food security, reducing reliance on external sources and decreasing the ecological footprint associated with long-distance transportation.
