CONTROLLED ENVIRONMENT AGRICULTURE


Droughts, natural disasters and excessive heat or cold all have already had a huge impact on agriculture, livestock and seafood production and it’s only expected to get worse. Farms throughout Africa are being degraded by soil mining, water scarcity and a loss of the crop diversity that ultimately feeds future farming.

Africa is known to be a place where the soil is suffering from exhaustion. Farmers are seeing their harvests crash from 15-25% every year due to soil degradation and desertification. Controlled Agriculture Environment Systems (CAES) relieves the soil of the heavy burden of trying to produce food from a depleted ecosystem. Controlled Agriculture Environment systems can be structured indoors and in other temperature-controlled environments, climate change has little if any effect on the production of fish and plants grown this way.

CEAS

Taking weather and climate out of the equation allows for a reliable, year round food source. CAES needs only 10% of the land area and required by conventional vegetable crops (agmrc.org) to grow the same yield and it is overall more cost effective to manage than traditional agriculture. This means that CAES production is a more economical option than soil based agriculture, which requires more land, water, energy, resources and overall cost. Since CAES can be structured indoors, this makes it possible to put them in any environment that traditionally are not capable of growing food. This puts people closer to the food source, reducing carbon footprint.
