• Sustainable agriculture takes centre stage

    Coventry-based hydroponics innovator, HydroGarden, is taking its innovative vertical farming system VydroFarm to the international stage in 2016 with exhibitions at horticultural trade fairs in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and the Netherlands.

    As pressure on food supplies continues to increase in line with rapid population growth, the agriculture industry continues to investigate the potential of alternative methods which are sustainable and offer reliable crop growth, such as hydroponics.

    Since its launch over a year ago, VydroFarm has attracted interest in the UK and from other countries looking for solutions to ensure food production in areas where traditional farming is not a viable option.

    HydroGarden will be exhibiting at the Global Forum for Innovations in Agriculture (GIFA) in Abu Dhabi (UAE), co-exhibiting with Evolve Growing Solutions, an initiative led by Dr Philip Lee which aims to identify and develop new technologies which can help to create a food-secure future.

    The second event, during which HydroGarden will exhibit in partnership with Valoya, is GreenTech in Amsterdam. Over 8,000 industry professionals are expected to attend.

    Stephen Fry, commercial sales manager for HydroGarden, said: ?Having had a very successful first year since we launched VydroFarm, we?re ready to take it to the next level and really test its export potential. As pressure on food supplies increases in line with population growth it will be necessary to look to other sustainable innovations such as hydroponics and VydroFarm to ensure that food production is sufficient for future generations.?
