The core of our business is our unique ability to combine various technologies together to create technology synergy for the benefit of our consumers, partners and investors. The following list contains those core technologies used throughout our business model.
Greenhouse and Satellite Growing Management Software
We have selected iUNU to assist us in the management of our satellite and greenhouse growing operations. Their software provides a completely AI-driven platform to manage all farming operations, including inventory tracking, production planning, yield forecasting, pest and disease management, food safety, and labor tracking
We will use blockchain technology as a means to create and maintain food data ledgers to provide food traceability that will allow our customers to simply scan a barcode on our packaging to view the history of any product.
We will use traceability technology to permit our consumers to scan a QR code on our packaging to see the entire growing history on the food they have selected. The data will be kept secure within blockchain.
Weather / Utility Grid Analytics
We will employ the use advanced weather predictabilities that will not only allow us to use historical weather data and weather forcasting, but also allow us to look at utility grid expected threats to help us guide measures to protect all operation locations with hyper local predictive analysis through tomorrow.io.
Make Our Own Water
With all the water shortages, all farms must be conscious of their water resources. Vertical farms naturally use less water, but, we still need it inorder to grow. So, we have embraced the company Genesis Systems and their Water Cube technology so that we can generate water off the grid.
We will employ the use of robot pickers for our greenhouse operations to maximize the optimum harvest parameters to provide our customers with the highest quality tomatoes, strawberries, cucumbers and peppers based on our picking requirements executed by AI (Artificial Intelligence) requirements determined by our buyers.
CHP (Combined Heat to Power)
We will use CHP or Combined Heat to Power to power our entire farm complex, or both the warehouse and the greenhouse operations. CHP systems can provide heat, cooling, and electricity to greenhouses, cutting energy costs and reducing emissions. CHP units can also support CO2 fertilization, a common method for inducing plant growth.
Anaerobic digestion is a process in sewage treatment designed to reduce the volume of sewage sludge and make it suitable for subsequent use. More recently, technology has been developed that allows the treatment and reduction of other organic waste, such as food, cardboard and horticultural waste. We have decided to use the Ecotone Renewable solution to allow us to convert our plant waste to liquid fertilizer and create a closed-loop growing system for all our plants.
We will use biodegradable containers that are made from 100% compostable sugar cane fiber, a sugar refining byproduct. They are 100% tree and plastic free, made from sustainable resources. They are compostable both in the home and commercial facilities. They are also microwaveable and freezer safe while being oil and cut resistant.
